Weird seemed to have intimidated the guys back when I was in High School...
Can you imagine what they must think of me now? B/c I haven't changed.
But, typical Black folks are always two-steps behind. They wait to jump on [someone else's] bandwagon b4 they ADMIT to liking "it".
Take Solange for instance. You guys are always shocked by what she wears, but the chick has always been different since day one. She's NOT TRYING TO STAND OUT.
I read that Beyonce listens to Bjork when she paints, but the difference between the two is that Solange looks like she listens to alternative music, while Beyonce fits the "norm". You wouldn't expect that from her. Whatever that means...
I'd rather wallow in weird and be misunderstood than typical and boring.
