I Love Bad Bitches…

Posted on May 17 2013

…That’s my f*!kin’ problem.

Like Dorothy Parker, Belle Starr, and Joan of Arc…

Those are the “bitches” A$AP Rocky is “singing” about right? If he’s not, then, as a generation immersed in pop-culture, we’ve certainly gotten lost somewhere along the way. Perhaps we need a reminder, a little refresher course, if you will, on what a real “bad-bitch” is and—SPOILER ALERT!—You won’t find her by clicking on BadGalRiRi’s Instagram page.

Maybe I’m a bit of a lit-geek, but I idolize Dorothy Parker for her bad-ass-ness. For those of you who aren’t instantly familiar with her name, allow me to introduce you to the American poet, short story writer, critic and satirist. As the woman who wrote, “A little bad taste is like a nice dash of paprika,” she could probably teach us all a thing or two about adding a little spice to our lives. On top of that, she could easily drink both you and I under the table. Speaking of tables, Dorothy Parker was one of the founders of the Algonquin Round Table—A group of New York City Elite. Praised for her witticisms and sassy attitude, Miss Parker is definitely one of my top “bitches”.

Belle Starr was a “bad bitch” of the western era. An against-the-grain gal, born to break the boundaries set out by society. Not even A$AP, himself, would have been bad enough for Belle, who spent her time hung-up on Jesse James before settling down with Sam Starr—the bootleggin’ horse thief. Together, they ran off into the sunset with their pistols…before being busted and sentenced to prison time. Still, it was a good run.

Joan of Arc might be The Original “bad bitch,” and probably doesn’t need much of an introduction. However, for those of you who don’t know how bad-ass J.O.A. was, let me shed some light on her live-fast-die-young life. As a 16-year old peasant girl, Joan spent her time petitioning the royal court and then subsequently leading the French army to several W’s before being captured and burned at the stake by the English when she was only 19. Joan of Arc achieved, conquered, and quite blatantly kicked more ass in her short life time than many of us “bad bitches” ever will.

So sure, let’s all enjoy this moment A$AP Rocky is having—but let’s also give a cheers to the real “bad bitches” of history who actually earned the title.
