112: ‘Me Too’ by Meghan Trainor

Fergie has led a double-life, but now the secret is out.

Luckily, it only elevates her fame. From being a bit of an outlier, she becomes a celebrity. Everyone wants to be her. And finally, she is happy with herself. She thanks God every day that she can wake up loving herself.

Fame brings admiration, VIP rooms with her friends and free drinks.

She is accepted and happy. She longer needs Will‘s friendship or Evanescence‘s love.

Lyrics

Another year has gone by, Another story over, a new one can begin.

To newcomers: I start out every year with a fresh start. A new story with a new focus. It’s in the same universe and has connections to the previous ones, but it’s easier to understand because the back story is limited to the bare necessities. Will I reuse the same characters? Will it be completely new? We’ll see.

Merry Christmas, happy new year and any other holiday taking place in the immediate future or recent past.

110: ‘Slut Like You’ by P!nk

Fergie has two separate lives.

In one, she’s a pretty pop star. This is how she makes a living. Her image here is a facade.

In another, she goes partying. This is her break. Here she can be crazy and completely herself.

She has managed to keep these lives separate since her partying would hurt her pop star image. Until one night.

She is at this point very drunk. She meets a guy, who recognises her as a pop star. He, however, seems to be looking for the same thing she is; a one-night-stand. She is so relieved she tells him the whole truth.

She goes out, now primarily with other girls also looking for men to take home. They don’t really care all that much about them. But she doesn’t go home with just anyone. And she makes it clear to the guy (what was his name again? Jack? Sam?) that she’s the one in control. She’s not the fool being convinced by him, he is. She’s even the one buying him shots.

He doesn’t seem convinced though and starts to leave. She tries to convince him to stay by calling him a caveman.

104: ‘Here’s To Never Growing Up’ by Avril Lavigne

Will is having a baby. He tells Fergie, his friend. She’s happy for him, of course, but realises that this means that he will eventually stop going out partying with her. This throws her into a panic. These nights out have been the first time, she can be herself ever. She NEEDS them to continue!

So she tries to convince him to keep doing this forever by inviting all of their friends for the next night out. She reminds him how much fun they are having. For instance by singing Radiohead at the top of their lungs to a boom box, falling in love with new people, drinking whatever will get them drunk, running down the street yelling “Kiss my ass”, dancing on every bar…

She raises her cup, declaring “here’s to never growing up”, keeps saying, they’re never going to change and tries to get him to say that he’ll stay forever young too (with increasingly more desperation).

102: ‘Thrift Shop’ by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Wanz

Will and Fergie both have more money than they need and spend it on going out to bars and clubsThey both have expensive lifestyles.

They come regularly to the same club. A guy named Macklemore also comes there regularly. And he is not impressed by their money. He buys everything from a thrift shop, in varying degrees of quality. But he still walks into the club confidently, wearing all pink, except for his gator shoes and a slightly smelly leopard mink, and walks up next to Fergie. He’s proud of his frugality. He dresses granddad style and looks incredible doing it.

Fergie laughs at and mocks him.

100: ‘Milf $’ by Fergie

Will has recently come into money. And he brags about it to his friends, much to his friend’s, Fergie’s, annoyance. She herself has a successful career as a singer and plenty of money herself.  She has just been rejected by an ex and thrown herself into her work and is actually proud of it. But has she ever rubbed that in his face? No, she has not.

So she decides to remind him. She calls his newfound wealth ‘milk money’, meaning he got it the way babies get milk, with the help of others. She, on the other hand, has what she calls ‘milf money’. She worked hard creating a sexy pop star image, and that pays her expensive lifestyle. In other words, she is independent.

And she has thoroughly proven to her parents, that she can do something right.

98: ‘Tin Man’ by Miranda Lambert

Fergie went to Evanescence, her ex, without defences and surfaces. She did this to show that she could be real with her now, that she truly loved her. Unfortunately, it was too late. Evanescence had felt lied to and Fergie couldn’t say anything to change that.

Fergie already feels vulnerable when she has her defences up. So a rejection given to her while she’s completely open breaks her heart into pieces. It hurts so badly that she wishes she didn’t have a heart at all. She thinks about the story of the tin man who searched for a heart his whole life but never found one. She compares it to the way she faked her way through life. And she thinks that if he had known how much a broken heart feels he would never want one.

And if he wants one so badly, he can have the pieces of hers. She’d gladly take his armour in return.

96: ‘I Bruise Easily’ by Natasha Bedingfield

Fergie has had a messy life. She is therefore deeply insecure. She has, however, hidden that from everyone. Some months ago that cost her a relationship. A woman named Evanescence was going to leave her husband for her, but then she saw one of the surfaces, Fergie put on and realised that the Fergie she knew, was a surface as well.

But this is months ago now. The husband is dead. And Fergie has had a lot of time to think. She goes to Evanescence without surfaces, without defences. She stands naked in front of her, all of her insecurities and bruises visible.

She tells her that she is insecure and is easily hurt. Even when she has her defences up, she feels the blows. So Evanescence will have to be gentle with her when she now gives herself over to her defenceless.

It is scary. This could hurt or heal her. Evanescence could love her or leave her. But if she never tries, she’ll never know how it would have turned out.
