Today I did something totally risqué. Well, that's no surprise! Usually when I'm parading around half naked though, I'm indoors. On this particular Sunday afternoon, I was outside in the French Quarter. I stood in a line outside of Sneaker Politics for two hours waiting to audition for Up Next Nola.
The most bizarre comment I received in response to my get up was "I'm not touching her." That was probably the most intelligent man in line to be honest. I wouldn't touch me either if I was walking down the street. Mostly, people just stared at me with their mouths wide open like they were about to catch a fly though. I didn't mind the confused attention.
I sang along to the first 45 seconds of my song "Piss On You" in front of judges: @LARRYMORROWEVNT, @PJMORTON, @TheRealMiaX, @coachk44, @JustGCue, and @CurrenSy_Spitta. (By the way, these are Twitter screen names.) I had a lot of fun. I felt like I had more of a chance at winning 10K doing this than playing the lottery so why the hell not do it, right?! Oh, and the best part, I had a water backpack and ran the tube through the sleeve of my coat. I used the mouthpiece as a microphone.
This was a closed audition so unfortunately, I have no footage of the performance. However, there was a camera man getting all up around my bubble so a video of this definitely exists. Whether I will ever see it or not, I have no idea. Let's see if this spectacle makes it to the next round. Oh, and I did remember to Thank Lil B THE BASED GOD for the inspiration in conclusion to my song. I'm not fucking around trying to get cursed over here. If you haven't listened to my song yet, check it out here:
