内容: I met Marcus Chong on the 105 bus method acting --
I met Cuba Gooding Jr. at the Beverly Center food court --
The Beverly Center food court is also where I met DeVante's brother from Jodeci --
Dave Chappelle also looked at my ass --
Chris Rock did the same thing --
DJ Quik was really nice --
Right after Jason's Lyric came out my sister & I saw Bokeem Woodbine in the Footlocker --
We didn't meet him but we sure did see Morris Chestnut --
Ohmygod but when we saw DeVante on the escalator --
One day Tiff was sad because it was the tenth anniversary of her mother's death & she just really wanted to go see Michael Jackson --
My sister & I met Keanu Reeves at our high school --
I don't remember how old I was when I saw Lou Rawls --
My mom was waiting at the bus stop in 1960 when she saw Chuck Connors --
My mom met Layzie Bone from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony at the airport --
My mom has never been very starstruck but she loved her some Billy Dee --
So maybe she was a little starstruck especially in the early Motown Era --
A few weeks later she saw Harry Belafonte walking down the street --
My dad played a pedestrian in the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith --
The same year I found out who Audie Murphy was I got stretch marks --
MA$E pre-preacher cleared a whole Atlanta dance floor when I showed up --
When I met LL Cool J I had just quit Fatburger --
Montell Jordan came to the drive-thru --
I never met Snoop Dogg but I met his homie Lil' ½ Dead --
When I worked in retail my coworker said Suge Knight liked her hairy legs --
I never met Donald Trump but I sure have been grabbed by the you-know-what --
I never met Bill Cosby but I met Beverly Johnson at Magic Mountain --
We met Shai at the Fox Hills Mall --
A boy people said was Sammy Davis Jr.'s son went to Beverly at the same time I did --
I was nine or ten when I met Minister Louis Farrakhan at Mosque No. 27 on Crenshaw --
My dad said he took us to see both Nelson Mandela & Muhammad Ali --
Speaking of those pictures --
Since Optimus Prime counts so does the KITT car --
Josh Duhamel walked past me really fast --
Al Pacino is on the short side but very gracious --
When we met Tupac we had just left the Arena on Sunset because it was gay night & we couldn't get in --
Walter Mosley mostly looked at our cleavage --
The Wayans brothers did not look at all --
I am from Los Angeles obviously --
Comedians can be the best --
Edward Norton just stared --
Prince called me up onstage at the Pontiac Silverdome --
When I met Andre 3000 at the Ralph"s in Burbank --
I met Keyshawn Johnson on the USC campus in one of the dorm rec rooms --
Allen Iverson used to hang out at a nightclub in Virginia Beach when I was stationed in Norfolk --
My two older sisters met Danny Glover off Rodeo & La Brea back in the mid-1980s --
Terrell Owens private messaged me on MySpace --
These days I don"t meet any celebrities at all --
A guy I chatted with online tried to impress me & every other woman with his selfies with Usher --
A man I met on Tinder took me to see Lionel Richie at Red Rocks Amphitheater --
At the end of summer I met a guy who looked like a six-foot-two Lenny Kravitz but he turned out to be a narcissistic sociopath --
My best friend from junior high school looks a lot like Djimon Honsou --
Watching Kool Moe Dee on Unsung makes me think about celibacy --
When I saw Ochocinco I had to think about all of the ways I had been fake --
Bill Clinton is a stellar speaker but Keith Richards meh --
The day David Bowie died I learned that 40 years ago it seems he deflowered a teenager --
My sister met Hugh Hefner at a sushi bar called Geisha House in Hollywood --
When I was in my early 30s I saw Elton John in a nightclub in Atlanta called Tongue & Groove --
I haven't met Jose James yet but I've come really close --
I follow The Rock on Instagram --
I saw Q-Tip at The Original Pancake House in Fort Lee --
I went to a fancy steakhouse & my class was showing --
Who did I see at the bookstore in the Minneapolis airport but Samuel L. Jackson in a gray sweatsuit --
So when a Famous Poet decides he wants to call me --
When I saw John Singleton buying a bean pie at the Simply Wholesome I knew I had done the right thing --
Any other name: a postscript.

摘要:

"Part 1980s and 1990s nostalgia, part exuberant storytelling, I'm So Fine: A List of Famous Men & What I Had On turns a sharply humorous magnifying glass onto gendered interactions in daily life, framed primarily by random celebrity encounters in Los Angeles. Far from a narrative of fame-chasing or conceit, however, I'm So Fine breathlessly addresses what it means for a woman to fight for dignity and survival in an often hostile environment, to come into her own power as she decides what she wants for herself '& mostly gets its every fineness'."--
