    12. She covered BUST, which is the raddest magazine.

    13. Her last record came packaged with delightful temporary tattoos.

    14. One time this happened.

    "I'm a man/ That's what you raised me to be/ I'm not your identity crisis/ This was planned." CHILLS.

    My human/feminist slogan for life: "Im not a woman or a man, I'm a two-fisted son-of-a-bitch who will punch your lights out and I love you".
