The word is out that Kanye West wrote a romantic song, “Perfect Bitch,” for his new ladylove Kim Kardashian. Kim is reportedly “honored” by the high praise. While the allure of dating a musician runs deep, what with that tousled hair and sweaty bravado, I’ve often wondered about the consequences. Do I want my name sung for all to hear? How do I feel about being labeled a “Perfect Whore?” Is there any hope if things end in bitterness? Maybe I should just stick to drummers.
For those bold daters out there without reservations, I salute you with a few odes to love come and gone, real and imagined, all on a first name basis.
