I went down to Church and Murray St last week to check out some amateur bands perform. The venue was cozy and intimate and most of the people at the event knew the members of the band. I was there because I was invited by le mystery guy. As I sipped my Guinness and thought about the music industy and about life – I couldn’t help but imagine what if. What if I was a band wife or a music groupie? What would my life be like? Travelling on a whim with my lover wherever he goes, always standing the crowd cheering and clapping. Secretly proud and in awe of his talent but also afraid and know all these girls want him. I thought about what it would be like to play a supporting role in a man’s life and not ever be center stage. I don’t think I can do it. The me I know always has a tall drink of water who is my arm candy for the red carpet. I can’t get use to it the other way around. I think then about Amber Rose and Kanye. How can she just be his girl when she has so much star power of her own? I think I will need a low key, behind the scenes guy in my life.
Back to reality, where I am just at an event at a bar… You can go see him perform in New York this week. Emanuel Gibson & The Color Green: December 23 @ Sullivan Hall-8 pm til late 214 Sullivan St btwn 3rd and Bleeker.
