With My Alter Ego/Muses

So in my Sexy Ladies Hip Hop dance class (the name may seem laughable but we take it as a very serious business, and it's fantastic), the instructor often tells us to channel our inner alter ego, ie. Beyonce and Sasha Fierce, in order to bring out more of a character to our moves.

I haven't named mine yet (sidenote: whatever name I thought of, it just sounds like a porn star/stripper's name), but I can tell you now who together in combination will make up my alter ego, because obviously I am too complex to have just one type of personality for my doppelganger:

Lady Gaga + Beyonce + Lily Allen + Rihanna + Tina Fey

This may be slightly confusing and impossible, but for instance, if you look at my dramatically different outfits from day to day, then you'll realize that I am always channeling one or two of those wonderful ladies' attitudes' with each of my outfit. And I am sorry that I am not deep enough to have anyone besides pop stars and a comedian, but this is MY alter ego.

Well I've also bought the art/feminist studies book Dangerous Women: The Perils of Muses and Femme Fatales recently. I've begun to read it and it's really fascinating. Maybe I'll find more inspiration there soon. ;)

P.S. This semester so far has been AMAZING. <3
