“oooh, that’s a tough one… i think a boy
cuz we can either make him a rap star or a star athlete
yeahh, see. if she was a grl, she’d either be a teen mom, prostitute, or a rap star lyk beyonce”—ting, my wife….
do other countries also know the well known songs that we know here?
because our artists are more international than others.
so i’m sitting here listening to kelly clarkson’s “since u been gone”, and i’m wondering if i ever go to another country and am like “you know this song. everyone knows this song”, play it, and they just sit there thinking “stupid americans…”
“My sister Christi had a baby when I was 17, and I had just heard about crib death. The horrible thing was that it wasn’t understood. For some unknown reason the baby would stop breathing. So I would sneak into where the baby was sleeping and put my hand in her crib, hold her little finger, and I’d sleep on the floor like that. It was stupid, I’m sure. But I thought the warmth of my hand might help, that maybe if she felt my pulse it would remind her to breathe.”—Johnny Depp (via johnnyburton)
