Valentin Perrin

I’ve got a slight crush on French fashion designer/photographer Valentin Perrin. While he’s completely adorable, Valentin is also extremely talented. His photos are amazing and his couture designs are flawless. We also share the same taste in fashion. So why did I not know of him sooner?!

Valentin is totally the male version of Emilie Autumn. All the stripes, tea, and red hair really remind me of her. My own style is heavily influenced by Emilie, so I see a lot of myself in Valentin. I’m always attracted to pale, skinny, feminine guys and this is no exception. I like them creepy, too. I’ve also been known to do some weird stuff with stuffed animals…

As a designer, Valentin is superb. Not many people can create clothes as gorgeous as these.

Another cute boy, Thomas Vitriol, works with Valentin and is also a singer. Gotta put in a picture of him, too. 😉

You can check out more about Thomas and Valentin on their websites. I really like them both. Feminine men make me quite happy. Let’s continue to break gender norms and challenge what society dictates a man should be. Real men obviously wear stockings and hella fierce makeup.

I wanted to mention that Valentin Perrin did not directly influence the poem I posted a while back on this blog. I just coincidentally picked that name for the poem because it fit and I didn’t want to use the guy’s real name for confidentiality purposes. However, I can say that since writing that poem, my relationship has grown substantially with a special guy. I think I might be in love, which is super exciting! It’s so weird because I have never felt this way before, but it’s amazing. 😀 Do you guys want to hear more about my love life? I feel like it’s a very different topic for me and pretty personal. Change is a good thing, though. Just let me know. 🙂 I promise to stay twisted. lol ❤

White Female Rappers

9

I seem to be in party/fun mode lately and I’m loving it. Not taking life too seriously and just appreciating the moment. As such, I wanted to share some of my favorite female rappers who like to have a good time, too. No basic bitches allowed.

Kreayshawn

I fell for Kreayshawn when her song “Gucci Gucci” blew up in 2011. Yeah, her lyrics aren’t deep and she likes to smoke weed,  but you can’t deny she goes hard…like real hard.

Lady Sovereign

I’ve been a fan of Lady Sovereign for years. She’s so tiny and unique. Lady Sovereign is openly a lesbian and she criticizes stereotypical female gender roles in her lyrics, which is awesome. Oh yeah, and if “So Human” sounds familiar to you, that’s because it samples The Cure’s song “Close to Me”. Just another reason why Lady Sovereign is way cool.

Colette Carr

I would liken Colette to Ke$ha’s little sister with a little less sleaze and lots of spunk. She appears sweet and innocent, but Colette can hold her own with her rhymes. I find it interesting that she used to be a competitive tennis player, but had to quit due to an injury. Just goes to show that roadblocks in life can lead to even bigger successes.

Die Antwoord

This South African rap group is so strange. And I love it. Yo-Landi and Ninja both have serious rap skills, but I particularly like Yo-Landi. There’s something oddly childlike about her and her foul mouth throws me off. It’s also super rad that Die Antwoord uses three different languages in their songs, blending them together very well. Their visuals are off the chain, too.

Brooke Candy

Brooke is one filthy girl. I adore her look, though. Most epic hair ever! I’m also slightly afraid of her. Brooke is a stripper as well as a rapper and nudity is no big deal for her. She definitely doesn’t have a filter. Sorry if you have sensitive ears! Brooke Candy just doesn’t give a fuck.

And there you have my fierce picks for female rap. While rap is not my favorite genre of music, I do quite enjoy it and have dabbled in it myself. You never know what you might excel at until you give it a try!

I’m now going back to partying like a rockstar. 😉
