Blake Lively is on the cover of this month’s Lucky magazine, which first off: shout out to Lucky magazine. It’s kind of amazing that Lucky magazine even still exists, right? I have not looked at it in many years, but I once dated a girl who subscribed to it and it was basically just a gigantic advertisement but with pages of stickers and you could put stickers on your favorite parts of the advertisement? This was before 9/11, when the world was a simpler place. And yet here Lucky still stands screaming fuck the free world. Anyway, Blake Lively is on the cover like I said, and she has some VERY moving self-reflections to share with all of us (via Celebitchy):
“Work is important, but my greatest passion is my personal life.”
Powerful stuff. WORK IS IMPORTANT, BUT MY GREATEST PASSION IS MY PERSONAL LIFE. You know that you can only say that if you don’t have a real job, right? That means you don’t actually “work.” Not in any meaningful sense of the term. Also what does that even mean?! Your personal life is your PASSION? Like, that’s what you REALLY want to do when you grow up? Is have a personal life? I’m legit confused by this quote. “Work is important, but my greatest passion is everything outside of work.” YEAH, WE KNOW, DUDE. #factsonly, dude. At the same time, considering what’s going on this week, I also find it deeply touching and I will carry it in my heart forever. So actually thank you, Blake Lively. Namaste.
