Can we first spare a moment of silence for the man, the legend….50 Cent. The G that got rich and didn’t die trying, and recently managed to bankrupt himself in a coke storm of (borrowed) cars, gold chains and hoes.
If theres one thing that Mr Cent has taught me, its that even if you go from rags to riches on the back of successful r&b/rap songs that fetishise childhood pastimes and birthday parties, you can loose it all in a second thanks to an un-strategically placed dick.
Best give up now then.
Speaking of bankruptcy; I have recently moved to London.
I’m starting to think that when Kate Moss said “get the London look” she was actually referring to the unwashed, unshaven, fag toting, Sainsbury’s basic beer drinking mess I’m going to become if I leave the house one more time before I move out of this bloody city.
I went to use the tube the other day from Holborn to Oxford Circus and had to hand over £2.30, my firstborn child, my university degree and the clothes off my back.
Turned out it wasn’t even working, there was a tube strike on so I walked it.
I don’t know how people do it. If I stayed any longer I’d have to start letting my London Bridge down if you know what I mean.
Hint hint, nudge nudge.
When I first got my swanky London summer job, with its decent pay at fancy establishment, I had visions of rocking up in a bedazzled black cab in head to to Chanel a la Posh Spice.
Instead I have been reduced to hiding out on my duvet bunker and hoping for my bank to have a computer glitch and accidentally forget to “autosave” my overdraft…like those times you spend a week of all nighters at the library and and wake up to find that your essay has disappeared in a poof of smoke.
Cash donations are welcome.
Designer shoes even more so.
HOW DO YOU PEOPLE DO IT?
P.S. London move is (thankfully) a temporary situation. T-14 days till I move to Mississippi…posts to come.
