if you set your mind on something, you really can achieve it [or a version of it].
i first met pharrell at an mtv vma afterparty in 2007 in vegas, snuck some red carpet photos & thought to myself, wait, i want to be officially invited to the vma’s one day, soon, and not just as someone’s guest. sure enough, come 2008, i was cast in mtv’s bff show with paris hilton, & there i was, blondie, at the vma’s in la and tokyo, side by side the top musical talents in the nation. even famous tokyo talents wanted to take a photo with me [moi?]. more about
all the drama my interesting experience on that show and its aftermath in a later post.
anyhey, on sept. 19th, the new yPlan app had their launch party in new york at finale, one of the newer clubs in ny that i enjoy revisiting occasionally, with pharrell performing several of everyone’s favorite tunes. he looked quite smooth in his cool hat + ice creams + all that swagger, but his polka dot cardigan was what stole everyone’s heart. this is not the usual party scene, so i was looking forward to who i might [not] meet. notable conversations of the night:
- “can i make you my client? i can get you out of trouble & i will be better than the attorney[s] currently representing you.” [better than my sister & a greek god??] “no.”
- “guess what i do for a living.” “i don’t know, from that sweatband you’re wearing on your head, a marathon runner? a sushi chef?”
now, to set my mind on my next goals…in the meantime, i’ll be searching for the perfect cocktail to share with you.
