//so much love for you
Given that the choice of life partner is by far the most important thing in life to get right, how is it possible that so many good, smart, otherwise-logical people end up getting it so wrong?
//Very cute (and accurate) article for those in the late-twenty-somethings wondering about their love choices :)
|BADU:||How do you choose chicks from backstage?|
|LAMAR:||How do I choose chicks from backstage?|
|BADU:||Yeah, what is the protocol?|
|LAMAR:||I try not to. [laughs] I’m too scared. Anybody who knows me knows that I’m probably the most scared person when it comes to that because I’m so caught up in the act of sex, of something going crazy, going out of my control. I’m too paranoid.|
|BADU:||[laughs] So you just pass?|
|LAMAR:||I’ve got to because I’ve seen a situation where it got totally out of hand, where something seemed so innocent, and now this person has got allegations on them. It spooked me. This was before my career really started, though—before any “Kendrick Lamar.” And that right there? It changed my whole perception about certain things. I’ll always keep that in the back of my head.|
|BADU:||So who is your asshole-checker?|
|LAMAR:||Who is my what?|
|BADU:||Your asshole-checker—the person in your crew or your family who let’s you know if you’re being a asshole.|
|LAMAR:||I have two, actually. [both laugh] But the main one is a friend of mine—a lady friend who has known me since high school. She has always been someone, since day one, who has said something whenever I’m an asshole, or also if I’m doin’ something positive—but more so when I’m out of my element.|
|BADU:||What’s your favorite cereal?|
|LAMAR:||Fruity Pebbles. When people ask for my rider, they think I’m crazy: Fruity Pebbles, baked chicken, bottle of Hennessy, and some Polo socks.|
|BADU:||What do you, as a man, envy about what it means to be a woman?|
|LAMAR:||There’s just a certain knowledge instilled in a woman. There are these things that women have that men just can’t grasp: the understanding of love; the understanding of being; having a certain type of care in your heart and knowing when to be compassionate; knowing how to be a confidante…|
|BADU:||That’s a good perspective. Something I envy that men have is that ability to grow a goatee. I think that’d be really hot on me.|
Yeah, am bear. But some days, why am bear? Is there more than bear?

I have learned to love like the tides. That is how I love you. It will ebb and it will flow. But it is constant, it’s ever changing, and it will always return as long as you return.

🔥 DESIDERATA: “Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. 🔹As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. 🔹Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. 🔹Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. 🔹If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. 🔹Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. 🔹Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. 🔹Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. 🔹Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. 🔹Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. 🔹Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. 🔹Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. 🔹But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. 🔹Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. 🔹And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. 🔹Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. 🔹With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.” - Max Ehrman
