Like the Internet junkie I am I consume a vast amount of content every week. Some are just too good not to share with the world so here are five different links to badass women doing badass things:
Broadly makes a visit to Pamela des Barres on her 67th birthday, known for spending her 20s and teenage years as a respected rock’n’roll groupie with an impressive array of seducers like Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Keith Moon and Woody Allen in the 60s and 70s. They discuss her biographies from that time, what it’s like being a feminist groupie but constantly publicly shamed and female aging. It’s dramatic and it’s magic.
Writer Alexander Chee writes a stunning piece about the time back in 2003 when he’d sublet his friends flat on Manhattan, way above his budget as a writer. Presented with a larger budget and more time than ever he’s still struggling with the agony of writing his 2nd novel when one day he bumps into his new neighbour who happens to be Chloë Sevigny.
”The elevator was soon like a little theater of her. The doors would open and she would be there, sometimes dressed very elegantly, sometimes in a wifebeater and Daisy Dukes, a bottle of Woolite perched on her hip, going to the basement to do a little laundry. It was the best ad Woolite never had. She soon would nod when she recognized me, before the doors closed again. But I never intruded on her, never spoke to her.”
Ok, I felt like I couldn’t breathe when I found this story through Minda Jalling who’s featured in it. It’s a girl crush overload with 10 chicks talking about their tattoos. Beautiful text and gorgeous photos. In Swedish though but still wicked.
Fallen into oblivion is that in the peak of R&B aka 2005 our all time badass Rihanna, 17 at the time, performed a Destiny’s Childs tribute at the World Music Awards. OH MY GOD HOW IS THIS NOT EVERYWHERE ALWAYS. Fabulous and innocent and it makes me love her even more. Noisey wrote more about it here.
