79: ‘The Monster’ by Eminem ft. Rihanna

Slim is not a young man anymore. But he is still a musician, who reaches a lot of young people.

Among these is Sara. She became a fan when her personal life turned upside down. She needed someone to turn to. That became Slim because he wrote about the things that she felt. About having the mind wander off to dark places and liking it there. About trying to get attention and getting it – but at a price. Of course, for him, it was positive attention, but for her, not so much. About throwing attitude in the face of adversity.

He helped her then when she lost her friend. He helps her now, that she has lost her lover.

45: ‘This Is What You Came For’ by Calvin Harris feat. Rihanna

Nicki chose who to seduce very deliberately. You see, she is loudmouthed, because otherwise people don’t notice her.

Gaga is different. She attracts attention naturally. Lightning strikes every time she moves. In a night club she quickly draws everyone’s eyes – and Nicki is jealous of that.

So once when Gaga herself sets her eyes on someone, Nicki catches their attention, before they notice and gets them to go home with her instead. It’s easy, since they obviously came here with the exact purpose to pick someone up and Nicki doesn’t have to say a lot.

”Your place” she says as the two leave together.
