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.

95: ‘That’s What I Like’ by Bruno Mars

Will has come into money. Lots of money. And now he wants to spend it on Taylor, his girlfriend. Anything she wants. And if she doesn’t know what to ask for, he has suggestions:

Coming to his recently acquired condo in Manhattan
Or renting a beach house in Miami
lobster tail for dinner
Or his new assistant, Julio, can get her scampi
money
a ride in his new Cadillac
Gold jewelry
strawberry champagne
Silk sheets
white diamonds
trips to Puerto Rico
shopping sprees in Paris

Whatever she wants, it’s hers. And he’ll enjoy giving it to her. He likes to see her smile and promises she will never have a reason not to anymore.

57: ‘Up & Up’ by Coldplay

Steven earns his wealth from owning orange farms.
He worked towards this dream for years working meal to meal.
Natasha supported  and helped him – most of the time. There was in fact a period in which they were broken up – and it actually broke Steven’s heart. They got back together and healed. They lived trough hardship, seeing each sunrise as a gift.

No links, still more than 25 words and still no computer. But even if mine doesn’t come home by next week, next post will be written on a computer.

Like, follow, all that, if you want.

40: ‘Beautiful Dirty Rich’ by Lady Gaga

Steven and Natasha are still a couple. They are rich and their daughter, Gaga, gets the full benefit.

She is a beautiful young woman and a completely shameless party girl. She happily spends her parents’ money on watching sexual activities, getting expensive haircuts, buying tight, fashionable clothes and getting shitwrecked on drugs while dancing. She hangs out with young people just like herself: beautiful, dirty and rich.

When the money slips up, Gaga has no problem coming crawling to Steven with fake apologies in order to get more.

Their parents are public figures, so they are used to the press and expressing their lack of shame about their lifestyle in such a charming and sugar-sweet maner, they dance around potential scandals
