Great minds think: viktorandrolf
I remember being stage left watching jimmy jam announce Grammy winners, waiting for my category to be announced, getting high-school-physics-project-nervous. I couldn’t move each of my feet more than 6 inches forward at a time, on account of the rad, aforementioned dress/shoes combo. I remember asking the wonderful, avigail.collins, if she thought anyone would be able to see my vagina if I had to walk up the stairs to the stage to accept an award. I think she assured me, “no,” though I am not sure she could possibly know the answer to that question. I was poised to only have to walk a few steps up, should my name be called, and meet one of my absolute heroes ( flytetymejam and terry lewis, call me — that “rhythm nation” shit is industrial af), when all of a sudden, the awards podium went stage right! Shaggy began announcing the categories just before mine. “Fuck How am I going to get over there in time?! I can’t walk up the center stairs and risk winning an impromptu “best rock vagina” award.” And then it was time. And direalshaggy called my name and jackantonoff’s name and it was so sweet and I felt like I was on a rad version of the price is right (viktor & Rolf edition) and jack didn’t see me because I was coming from stage left and I think he thought I hadn’t bothered to show. And I had to call his name across the big stage but my voice gets very high and breathy in those moments and it took him a second to register that I was behind him. And then we both gave speeches and it was the most nervous I’d ever seen either of us ever. And I had always rolled my eyes at actors when they win awards and say they don’t have a speech prepared and bend too far over the little microphone to breathlessly thank people but then I was there and I ALSO bent over the little microphone and i also didn’t have a speech prepared
Anyway, iamcardib looks amazing Love her.
