I Just Can’t Stop Loving You

Does Azealia Banks have some ridiculous and unnecessary name to describe her fans yet? If so, put me in that category. “1991” is my favorite song from her EP of the same name and combined with “Liquorice,” is what won me over to her side.

I adore everything about the song, and now, video. It reminds me of all the things I love: New York, the bop, and the gay. And I love the homage to Crystal Waters. From the back to the middle and around the end. I noticed she’s sent a few of her fans in Waters’ direction after introducing her. Not all different from me and some new interest in house music. Yeah. And thank you.

Out of habit, I develop a special kind of¬†affinity¬†for an artist that can give me a bit of peace. This includes folks who offer that via an uptempo. I can’t do My Life all the time. So naturally, I’m probably going to love Azealia Banks forever and ever now.

Soon, I plan to be dancing around to this somewhere in the city. Preferably full of the spirits. Washed down with something absolutely terrible for me. Well, depending on how you look at it.

You know, kind of like I do in my room. Or the gym. Or a parking lot. Dancing the way Madonna did in that nightclub scene in Truth or Dare. During the performance of “Vogue.” Uh huh, just like that.

Also, do you see this, Lauren? I can be gay when I want to be. Take that. As for y’all, fall in love. Or not…just don’t tell me about it.
