Mud On My Stilettos

July 18, 2017

 

Many who look at this picture would be appalled that someone would

wear Christian Louboutin heels in the dirt. I’d have to agree, it’s not a normal picture, but they say a picture is worth a thousand words and this image embodies who I am. Considered a city girl due to my red carpet appearances and platinum recording artist status, I however, live in the country and I work for it. When I was in Nashville creating my solo EP, I would take meetings, write music, discuss who I was and how my brand was different. That was an easy answer for me…”I don’t mind a little mud on my stilettos”. The response was always a positive one. It took an actual event for me to come up with this one simple line that covered such a large scope. Let’s really paint this picture. I live above a barn, it is exactly what it sounds like, the bedrooms, kitchen, and living room are all located above an actual horse barn, stalls and all. One evening I was getting ready to go and perform, I had just finished getting dressed and putting on my Louboutin's to complete the look. I went to touch up my hair, sure enough the circuits overloaded and I tripped a fuse. Still dressed in my stage attire (heels and all), I made my way down into the dark barn with a flashlight. I found the electrical box, flipped the switch and headed out through the dirt of the barn floor. At that moment I had to laugh at the juxtaposition, I even said to myself out loud, “I'll bet Christian Louboutin never imagined his shoes in a barn!" To this day when someone wants to know who I am in a nutshell, I use my famous line. To me it embodies a classy girl who keeps it together, but doesn’t mind getting dirty while working hard and doing what it takes to get the job done. And yes, I have written a song about it, one day I’ll record and share.


Art is life and from life we discover art. My art just has a little dirt on it!
