In the land of Gods and Monsters, I was an angel living in the garden of evil
Lana Del Rey opens her song with much conviction that she needed to survive a world filled with many evils ruled by monsters and patriarchs who see themselves higher than anyone else. She was an angel. She was the light. She was herself.
In a land where many conservatives hail – where people choose to conform to out-dated norms – I was a rebel. I was a visionary. I am a surfer against the tides. I am me.
At the remaining days before his twenty-first year, the creature called Last Supreme was feeling archaic and rustic. He, who was once very vigorous and full of spirit, whose unwavering enthusiasm for things was relentless, has now gotten sucked up into a whirlwind of numbness and a quicksand of dullness. “Is it the age?

Another day, another slay – this is what my Mother Monster does best which is why I aspire to live up to her influence. And in case it’s still vague, this post, yet again, is influenced by Lady [fucking] Gaga.
When I’m asked about my personal style or branding, what more can I say than ‘unexpected’. Yes, I’m still that province boy surviving the city and that is part of who I am. But apart from that, I’m also one who likes to take risks in fashion – one who defies fashion to be unfashionable – and that, for me, is my style.
