I've discovered special makeup by a company called M.A.C. You could wear it on the surface of the sun and it wouldn't move.

B is for Breasts Of which ladies have two; Once prized for the function, Now for the view.
I've always spent more time with a smile on my face than not, but the thing is, I don't write about it.
I had no desire to be famous; I just wanted to make the greatest music ever made. I didn't want anyone to know who I was.
