2018, chapter 20: ‘Delicate’ by Taylor Swift (nr. 132)

This happens while Little Mix is fighting of a pushy guy and is the reason they went to that bar in the first place.

See, Chainsmoker is dating one of the bartenders. It’s very new and delicate, but Chainsmoker is smitten. She thinks about the bartender sometimes when she should be sleeping. When she looks into the bartender’s eyes, she sometimes pretends they could be a couple all the time.

And it really isn’t for the best. Her reputation has never been worse. But that just means that the bartender must like her for her.

This particular night, the bartender has invited her to this dive bar on the east side. And so she and Little Mix go there.

It’s an informal place, so the bartender is dressed in dark jeans and blue Nikes – a very attractive look. The bartender makes her a drink at the bar at the very back of the room.

The couple goes across town to the west side.

Here they talk about their relationship. Chainsmoker lets her lover know, how much she likes and wants them. They’re is in her head. She knows the couple can’t make any promises yet. She asks if it’s okay, that she admits all of that this early (the couple isn’t even monogamous yet).

It is.

They spend the evening entangled. She asks her lover to stay here. The couple stays for the night. Chainsmoker watches her lover sleep and wonders if they’re dreaming of her.

86: ‘Don’t Let Me Get Me’ by P!nk

Fergie  enjoyed going to bars way before Will seduced her into his way of partying because it was a break from her mess of a life. Never the best at anything, a teacher’s pet only in the way that she dated them, and her parents wasted no time telling her how she was wasting hers by doing everything wrong.

She let it get to her. She couldn’t stand herself and wasted even more time insulting herself in the mirror.

She did enjoy singing, so she decided to find happiness in that. But She was soon told to change everything about herself to become a pop star. So she did, but it wasn’t enough. She was just compared to other, better pop stars – and that based on being all pretty, which she didn’t want to be.

So there she was, hating her dream job. She needed a break, so she started going out to bars on her own. Here she might not be herself, but she could pretend to be more successful and have complete control of the situation.

But then Will came along. Going out with him was different. She was completely out of control, but very much herself – and loving it.

53: ‘Last To Know’ by P!nk

Nicki has a fashion show for her sneakers brand, Giuseppe Zanotti. Gaga doesn’t show up, which angers Nicki. She could have called her up and said good luck, but instead Nicki had to be told from someone else at the last moment, she wouldn’t show at all. By then she had already called Gaga and received no response.

They went out on a date together. They ate sushi. Nicki made gaga laugh many times. Gaga called her a cutie.

Nicki’s anger rises the more she thinks about it.

She left tickets at the door for Gaga. She had to tell her mother, there was no more room for her, so there would be room for Gaga.

At the date, Gaga had directly said, she would go to the show.

After the date, Nicki didn’t want to go home with Gaga. She wouldn’t sleep with her.

Nicki figures that if she had been a hoe and slept with Gaga, Gaga would have shown up. But that’s not how Nicki rolls. Not after an actual date.

Now that Gaga has clearly shown that she does not know Nicki at all and that she thought she could just have her without caring about her and her work even the least, they will no longer even be  as much friends as they had been.

Gaga of course still wants to be ‘friends’, but Nicki yells at her and refuses, the next time she calls.

EDIT: Yeah, I forgot the links and my ending spiel this week in my excitement. I have taken the liberty to fix it how I would have fixed it, had I noticed it sooner.
