Sarah, beware. I have been generous up ’til now. I can be cruel.
Generous? What have you done that’s generous?
*Everything*! Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for *you*! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations. Isn’t that generous?
Known professionally as Avicii or Tim Berg, Tim Bergling is a Swedish DJ, remixer, and record producer born in Stockholm. His single “Bromance” (recorded under name Tim Berg) charted in the top 20 on the national single charts of Belgium, the Netherlands, and his native Sweden.
Tim Bergling explains his “Avicii” moniker saying, “Avici is kind of like Dante’s Inferno … it’s the lowest level of hell in Buddhism. A friend of mine told me about it, and it stuck in my head. I was going to make up a name for my MySpace page for the first time, and I just went with it. I had tried a couple of other [names] before, but they were all taken. I ended up with Avicii, and then I got really attached to it.”
He’s only 28 years old, but already has a net worth of 75 million, all due to his incredible success in just the last five years. After a year long hiatus he’s released Avīci, his six-track EP that was teased only a few weeks before its August 10 release date.
My favorite by far is this collaboration with the amazingly talented, Rita Ora.
“At the bottom of a bottle
You’re the poison in the wine
And I know
I can’t change you
And I won’t change..”
..And an acoustic take is always a must for me! Here’s my favorite cover of the same track!
Keanu Reeves is 52 years old and still the man I find endlessly fascinating. I remember watching him in Paula Abdul’s “Rush Rush” music video in the early 90’s when I was still in elementary school, and telling my mom how I had the biggest crush on him. He had the long hair well before Bieber made it trendy and an exotic vibe to him. His name along with his jet black hair and fair skin, definitely made him stand out.
Today he is a well respected actor with an incredible back story that includes countless tragedies that would’ve broken down most people. His father abandoned him and his family when he was only 3 years old. He was dyslexic and struggled getting his education and ended up bouncing between 4 different high schools. At the age of 23 his best friend River Phoenix, died of an overdose on Halloween night.
In 1998, Keanu met Jennifer Syme. The two fell instantly in love and by 1999, Jennifer was pregnant with their daughter. Sadly, after eight months, their child was born stillborn. They were devastated by her death and it eventually ended their relationship. 18 months later, Syme would die in a car accident.
Even with those incredible tragedies, Reeves would push on. He’s starred in a variety of blockbusters and has become a wealthy man, but the pain of his losses has changed how he thinks about money. He’s well known in Hollywood for being among the more charitable actors.
After the successes of The Matrix and its sequels, Reeves gave $80 million of his $114 million earnings to the special effects and makeup staff of the films. He also took pay cuts on the films The Replacements and The Devil’s Advocates so stars like Gene Hackman and Al Pacino would agree to be in the film while keeping casting within the designated budget.
Even though he’s likely bworth $100 million, the man still rides the subway. And he’s super nice about it too. He’s 20 years my senior but I’d drop any other man for him in a heartbeat.
Brandon Boyd is 41, and still just as gorgeous as he was when i first laid eyes on him 16 years ago. I remember watching an interview he gave to MTV about their album “Morning view” back in 2001, and being totally taken back by how beautiful he was. Initially, it was his pretty boy face that caught my attention, but as he spoke I fell in love with the way his mind worked and how he was able to convey his creativity so eloquently. He was so well versed and poetic while explaining his art and how the lyrics to his music came to be. That began my obsession with incubus and “Boyd.” He is an artist through and through, who doesn’t seem drawn to the superficial, and i respect him for it. He’s the kind of man you’d never be bored by because he’s so interesting and knowledgeable. He also seems oblivious to just how good looking he actually is, which in turn makes him even more attractive.
Johnny Depp is the quintessential gemini man and I love him for it. He is 53 years old and still a badass in every sense. I loved him in “Edward Scissorhands” and had the biggest crush on the odd ball character he played. He seems to always push boundaries as an actor, musician and trendsetter. He doesn’t mind going to those uncomfortable or dark places and embraces his edginess with a sort of lighthearted sarcasm. I’ve watched so many of his movies and interviews, and one thing that I can say about him that makes him attractive to so many women is his rebellious unpredictability. As soon as you think you have him pegged or figured out, he changes his image and throws out another side of himself to the world. He’s a loner too in a lot of ways and seems to gravitate towards like minded sort of folks. Johnny Depp is one of the few men that can appeal to the powerful corporate business woman AND the girl swinging on the pole at your local strip joint. He’s just that sexy!
Eminem is 44 years old! This man looks younger than some 20 something year old guys I’ve dated. He’s still just as smug as ever, but I always respected his talent and writing style. I’ve also been known to have a preference for assholes with a clever wit. He’s bold and blunt and not afraid to speak what’s on his mind. He’s all about self expression and not caring about what people say or think. He’s battled opiate addiction and been clean and sober for the last few years. I find his hard exterior attractive because beneath it, there seems to be so much more to him than meets the eye. The one quality about him that I find appealing is his passion. You can hear it in his tone and in the intentional way he spews out his words or even when he fixates his gaze onto someone. He’s intense and intentional. His hard ass attitude makes me think he’s probably got a pretty emotional/sensitive interior. Not too bad for being one of the greatest rappers of all time.
Patrick Dempsey is 51!! Like how does this man make crow’s feet around the eys and grey hair look so damn good! He is so handsome and poised and the carries himself with such elegant class. I loved him in Grey’s anatomy but I adored him in the 80’s film, “Can’t buy me love”. I was obsessed forever with that movie in the late 90’s when I was just a little girl. I was in love with this guy who was old enough to be my dad. I didn’t care then and I don’t care now, McDreamy will always give me butteflies.
It’s hard to believe that the ageless looking Lenny Kravitz is actually 53years old. He is by far one of the sexiest musicians I’ve ever watched play. He’s got such a sexy vibe that transcends to every aspect of his personality. His voice, mannerism, style, music and presence just exudes this strong sexuality. He’s unique in his appearance and seems to have committed his life to his creativity. I love his music and style of writing. It’s cool to see how his music continues to evolve, but his classic rocker chic image has remained intact. He has also had this agroginous look to him that makes him appealing to all kinds of people, genders, and social classes.
I’ve always been and will always be drawn to men with eccentric personalities, and those who possess a boldness to remain true to who they are. These kind of men paved their own way, and made no apologies for it. They went against the grain, and because of it, they have became some of the most notorious people that have ever lived. Not only do I find them all physically appealing, I am also completely enthralled by their talent, and mystified by their intellect and ability to stop time with their presence. Sadly though, with whom much is given, much is expected, and with that weight came burdens and inner demons of their own. But If given the choice, I will always go for the man that sparks the interests of my mind and heart, over the wealthy man, the cookie cutter man, the athletic man, the business man or predictable man. This is my blessing to see the wonderment of the man, and curse to ignore the consequences that ensue for getting caught up with men like them. While some men fear the fire; other men have simply chosen to become it. Like the women who knew them personally and loved them faithfully, I guess you can just add me as another moth to the flame.
