Sorry, I can't go with you there, playa. Not til she starts writing some original music that worth a damn... and her momma is white. Dammit... I hate how white people try to differentiate what country they're from like it makes them exotic or some ****. But the only end up telling us exactly how white they are.
"I'm Irish, English, and German!"
"So you're just REALLY white... and predisposed to being an alcoholic as well... damn..."
