I’m Sorry That I’m Not Sorry That I Like The New Chris Brown/ Rihanna Song
Listen — I KNOW that you know that I know that Chris Brown’s personal life has been forever tainted by the horrible, irrevocable, unforgivable, DESPICABLE things he has done (to Rihanna). Things, that if you don’t mind, I’m going to just lightly set aside for approximately three minutes and forty-three seconds while I thoroughly enjoy his most recent collaboration with his on-again (?!) lady of interest and unofficial Queen Midas of r&b-ish pop music. I mean, I hate that I love “Ain’t Nobody’s Business” but I also think that I’m so hypnotizied by the catchiness that is their new hit pop single, that I kind of love that I love it. Or rather, I’m Unapologetic about it. Get it?! (That’s the name of RiRi’s new album, which will surely be another hit. What else is new). Now please, stop reading so you can go listen and then we can both feel bad about not really feeling that bad about liking it.
Listen to “Ain’t Nobody’s Business” below.

I wish to God I’d had a list like this when I was 23.
Answer phones better than anyone else has answered phones before. Relay messages so brilliant, they bring people to tears. Turn the coffee run into the choreography of Swan Lake. Become best friends with every intern and every underling and every taxi driver you encounter.
I remember taking the pen and notebook from that woman outside the courtroom, flipping to a clean page in the book, and writing, JESSICA IS SAD in big, bold, uncoordinated letters. “My sister is going to be a good writer someday! Look at how nice her lines are!”
