A couple of weeks ago, I went to the last day of the Meadows Music and Arts Festival at Citi Field. (Shout out to my girl Gangsta Boo, who was like, “You know you want to go” even though I missed her performance on another day with Run the Jewels.) I saw Nas, who got a lot of love from his hometown audience in Queens, N.Y.
The headliners were the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who I’d never seen live before. They powered through some technical problems and I fucking loved them!
I loved them so much I have been listening to them ever since.
After I started playing them on repeat, I remembered they’d done some great videos, so I had to look those up. It was good to see the dancing douchebag kidnapper in 2002’s “By the Way” again.
I watched that video a couple of extra times because lead singer Anthony Kiedis looks so good in it. His hair, in particular. I started thinking, “I want that haircut.”
But, as it turns out, I already had that haircut. I can only seem to find this tiny little photo of me with Gigi the dog in 2003, but it’s Anthony’s haircut, right?
My taste in hairstyles is remarkably consistent!
