Help I’ve fallen for Ross Hornby and I can’t get up
You know what I actually am good at: retouching. It’s so obvious for a make-up artist to be a retoucher, ‘cause to me, it’s really just an extension of a palette.
[It’s not dishonest.] The idea of putting make-up on is dishonest. The idea of dressing; the idea of colouring your hair. You’re basically manipulating the world’s view of you, because it’s sort of like going, “Smoke. Mirror. This is me.” You’re setting towards your point of view. ‘Cause human beings without any adornment are rather pink and ridiculous!" — Mathu Andersen
My chain hits my chest
when I’m banging on the dashboard
my chain hits my chest
when I’m banging on the radio
suki zuky I’m coming in the Cherokee
gasoline there’s steam on the window screen
take it take it wheels bouncing like a trampoline
when I get to where I’m going
gonna have you trembling
“Suki, suki” means “drive, drive” in Arabic. In the music video Saudi Arabian women are driving and aren’t supposed to, so MIA’s saying “suki, suki”. They’re bad girls.
Further, سوقي (suuqii) is in the imperative singular feminine, in a form I think is Saudi colloquial — more formal would be اسوقي. So, it has an additional subtlety of telling a female to drive.
