“You already know…that’s the motto, n***a YOLO!”
But even though the motto is the YOLO acronym, which means, “You only live once,” there’s a few adjectives that can be circumscribed to such a philosophy.
And words that might come to mind instantaneously, like you’re playing a game of Scrabble, are “wild,” “free” and even “die” and “young.”
While those two latter words seem like polar opposites, one denoting the end and the other a beginning, together they transcend the meaning one holds, respectively.
So it’s no surprise that Ke$hatook it upon herself to call the lead single off her upcoming third studio album Warrior “Die Young.”
In the chorus, Ke$ha sings:
“I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums, Oh what a shame that you came here with someone, So while you’re here in my arms, let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young.”
Damn! Talk about living in the moment!
