Stupid 14 Year Old Girl by Crispy-Gypsy Stupid 14 Year Old Girl by Crispy-Gypsy
Because paying attention during Illustration class critique sessions is for LOSERS. Also i'm an asshole

An accompanying piece for a song I wrote called "Stupid 14 year old girl" exploring how heartbreak can make someone a cliche'd idiot as opposed to an artist or a poet. As in, you wish you could express yourself beautifully, express the anger that you're feeling in a way that transcends the heartbreak itself...

...but then you end up expressing the usual shit you hear on pop radio and read in the diary of a preteen girl who just broke up with her first boyfriend and thinks it's the end of the world.

Not saying that that's a bad thing, because those sentiments are cliche because they're so common, but so frustrating sometimes!

I was stupid when I loved you,
And you're making me stupid even now when you're gone


Prompted by my personal experience.

:/ Well this makes me a little sad for the 14 year old girl now. Some people just ARENT poetic or artistic and can only express themselves in ways we're too familiar with so we call them cliche. In doing so, we kick dirt into an already bleeding wound. Stupid 14 year olds hurt just like everyone else.

I think I said in the Artist's Description that this happens to everyone, and the reason that these feelings are "cliche" is because they're common. I think I also said that it didn't mean that these feelings were bad, just frustrating.

It's not calling 14 year old girls stupid, per se, it's an act of aggression and anger because when one DOES want to be artistic and poetic, they find out that they CAN'T be. Anger and heartbreak create a reversion to a state where we're more naive, and more receptive and more dramatic. Saying "stupid 14 year old" is a fuckin reference to that, just a place holder name to a feeling.

There's no need to get upset. I was merely stating my opinion on a topic, it turns out this piece wasn't directly related to the topic the way I assumed. I never meant to accuse you of anything.

No, you just made an assumption on the topic. I'm not upset, I'm correcting you.
