Although, I still struggle to have a bare-eyed day, the point I am trying to make, is that, the development of our taste, choices and aesthetic are based on so much of what has happened in our life, what we’ve experienced and what we ended up consuming through the years. Even a simple decision may easily be a subconscious reference to a fangirl moment from the past, and nobody is immune.
Music and musicians have personally been an integral part to building my aesthetic. So when asked to create an editorial story based on the likes and style choices of five legends, my stomach did a little flip as my brain raced to Wikipedia and subsequent dark corners of the internet where die-hard communities of relentless fans still live on, lamenting and rejoicing in equal measure. Though, it brought multiple afternoons of warm stories, random theories and funny quirks, my notebook quickly filled up with more than I could source and at times even find. Hurdles aside, I will forever revel in having ploughed through since it brings with it the joy of owning my little book of scribbled gems including how much Shakur loved his orange soda, while Houston had a thing for sushi. Legends, in some ways, are just like you and me.
