“Black is not sad. Bright colors are what depresses me. They’re so… empty. Black is poetic. How do you imagine a poet? In a bright yellow jacket? Probably not.”

― Ann Demeulemeester



Lisbon: You have not met this girl.

Jane: Oh, a tough cookie, likes to hide her emotions under a hard veneer?

Lisbon: Yeah.

Jane: Yeah, I think I’ve met a woman like that before.

Lisbon: Is that so?

Jane: Uh, you want to know how I got her to lower her guard?

Lisbon: How?

Jane: Uh, I lowered my own.

Jane: So you got angry. So you punched out a psycho drunk. So what? You know what your problem is? You think you’re better than everyone else. You think you’re perfect.

Dharma: No, I do not.

Jane: Oh, yeah? Then how come it’s such a big deal that you lost your temper? Everybody loses their temper.

Dharma: It’s not a big deal. It’s just not something I do.

Jane: Because you think you’re perfect.

“I am not a graceful person. I am not a Sunday morning or a Friday sunset. I am a Tuesday 2am, I am gunshots muffled by a few city blocks, I am a broken window during February. My bones crack on a nightly basis. I fall from elegance with a dull thud, and I apologize for my awkward sadness. I sometimes believe that I don’t belong around people, that I belong to all the leap days that didn’t happen. The way light and darkness mix under my skin has become a storm. You don’t see the lightning, but you hear the echoes.”

Netizenbuzz: IU names her antis ‘Milk’

Pann: The reason IU calls her antis ‘Milk’

Fan: What’s your favorite snack?
IU: Hardtack biscuits!

Fan: What are female fans to IU?
IU: They are like the star candy inside bags of hardtack biscuits (traditional bags of biscuits come with tiny packets of star candy)

Fan: If female fans are star candy and uncle fans are biscuits, what are anti fans?
IU: Milk?

Fan: Why are anti fans milk?
IU: Because you get thirsty when all you eat are biscuits so you need a gulp of milk to maintain a balance.

1. [+156, -12] That basically translates to receiving only love might make her cocky so she needs even a bit of hate to keep her grounded so she doesn’t lose her roots.

2. [+100, -13] It’s normal to think of people who hate you as your enemy but IU even finds a way to benefit from hate. For a young age, she has deep thoughts and I respect her mindset. When fans ask her if it’s hard because of anti fans, she always talks about having fans and worries about them first.

3. [+92, -11] That’s a really thoughtful way to put it..


The need to post it because it’s such a soul food. Or food for thought. For having such mature thought despite her young age, I salute IU. Such a babe inside and out.
