I love kissing. If I could kiss all day, I would. I can’t stop thinking about kissing. I like kissing more than sex because there’s no end to it. You can kiss forever. You can kiss yourself into oblivion. You can kiss all over the body. You can kiss yourself to sleep. And when you wake up, you can’t stop thinking about kissing. Dammit, I can’t get anything done because I’m so busy thinking about kissing. Kissing is madness! But it’s absolute paradise, if you can find a good kisser. — Sufjan Stevens on kissing (via galactci)
Turn Up: Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj - Bang Bang
Yesterday, powerhouses Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj released the audio for their collaboration “Bang Bang.”
The song has been teased for awhile. In an interview we posted earlier this month, Savan Kotecha, mentioned the collaboration and the Moulin Rouge/Lady Marmalade vibe he was going for. The lady combine in a tour-de-force, triumvirate— three powerhouse vocalists whose harmonies are just as sick as their solos.
What I love about the song is how, like Moulin Rouge, it drips in modern day nostalgia. The back beat reminds you of 1960s go-go soul, there’s a vibe of Lauryn Hill’s Miseducation but it fully embraces our current era of pop-rap. What emerges is a head-bopping-bad-ass-bitches anthem.
