Tonight I had the opportunity to cook in my new apartment for the first time. I was sick of sandwiches and shitty food. Before I moved I was telling Twitter I basically only have one knife, and it is serrated at that. They shamed me, appropriately, so during the move, I bought a big girl knife set…
"This, is a life sentence but I try not to live my life like I have been sentenced."
After reading this, late at night when I have just crawled into bed, all I feel is relief.
Here’s episode seven of Swoonstep, a podcast where girls talk about music and babes. We’re joined this week by Alesia Pullins, and no man is safe as we defend Ciara, Azealia Banks, and M.I.A. from fuckboys Future, ASAP Rocky, and Diplo. We can’t help it: we just love women so much. We practically write a dissertation on Drake, finally qualifying our great love with “Nicki Minaj does, too.” (This is relevant and topical.) Finally, a massive Swoonstep apology to Mos Def, but we get very personal about him and it results in one of the most hilarious segments Swoonstep has ever had.
Alesia is 1/4th of Swoonstep’s favorite podcast, Black Girls Talking, where four fabulous and incredible black women discuss representations of people of color in media. If Swoonstep had venture capital money, we would pay these ladies for their service to society. You can also find her on Twitter where she reps for black girls hard, talks about tough issues like race in America, and tells you what the best TV shows and beauty products are. She also has the greatest collection of Drake gifs on the internet. She is a god damn queen.
Shoot us a message if you’re a girl who wants to talk about the musicians that you, you know, like like, and thanks for listening!
