“I’m not much older than him, so I never want it to feel like I’m mentoring him,” she said. “But I do in a way. Because I’ve been doing this shit a long time, and I already transitioned, and I don’t think he’s quite done it yet. He’s trying really hard. People don’t take him seriously, but he really can play the drums, he really can play the guitar, he really can sing.”
She continued, “I just don’t want to see him f**k that up, to where people think he’s Vanilla Ice. I tell him that. Like, ‘You don’t want to become a joke. When you go out, don’t start shit. Don’t come in shirtless.’ But the thing is, I think boys are like seven years behind. So in his head, he’s really, like, 12.”
It’s funny that the “don’t come in shirtless” advice is coming from a girl who is posing on the cover of a national magazine without any clothes on, n’est–ce pas? In fact, I feel like all of this is secretly speaking to MC, don’t you agree? Confession: I think she’s so talented (“We Can’t Stop” was one of my favorite songs of the summer), but she’s not being taken seriously by a lot of people (maybe it’s the outfit choices or the twerking or even the teddy bears). One can only hope she hears herself and takes her own advice. Am I right?
