“I remember I was having like a really sick day, I wasn’t feeling very well, and I was laying in bed and I got a package from Louis Vuitton. I opened up the package and there was a beautiful bag and it was from a friend from LV. And in the package, Louis Vuitton sent me a little tiara in a little bag, and I didn’t even know that they made them. So, I just remember it was this sort of bittersweet moment because I was having a really sad, depressing day, having some very deep dark thoughts. And then this lovely little sparkler came in the mail and I knew that that day I couldn’t really go outside because there was a lot of mayhem going on in the streets, so I just sat inside all day and smoked marijuana and drunk wine with my tiara on my head.”—Lady Gaga on the day she wrote “Princess Die” (via blowhan)
Louis CK:If you raise a girl with some confidence and you send her out in the world so she feels like she can do whatever she wants, she's still going to get her face and her ass fucked but she's going to do it on her terms.
Louis CK:She's going to grab that dick by the base and go, "I want to suck this right now".
Louis CK:This should be your goal as a father: That your daughter only sucks a dick that she thinks is delicious.
“The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd - the longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was.”—Fernando Pessoa (via modernmethadone)
“The newspaper headline screams: “Eighteen-Year-Old Slain by Husband after Giving Birth.” As you continue reading, you learn that the young woman was brainwashed by a strange blood-drinking cult who call themselves a “family,” though none of the members were actually related. The young woman’s husband was much older than she and had a history of violence. In fact, you learn that her husband used to stalk her prior to her marriage, watching her secretly from the woods near her home and climbing into an unsecured window at night to watch her sleep without her knowledge. Once the young woman, then seventeen, was initiated into a relationship with the man and his “family,” she was encouraged to marry right after her high school graduation. The young woman reportedly had bruises all over her body after returning from her honeymoon, where she also reportedly became pregnant. Her husband was not happy about the pregnancy and wanted her to have an abortion. She refused, eventually leading to him ripping the child from her womb, then, draining her of her blood until she finally stopped breathing. Sounds torturous and sick, doesn’t it? But in fact, this is the basis of a tween-teen literary phenomenon called the Twilight saga…”—
