We all grow up not just loving but canonizing the people, whether artists or otherwise, whose vision of the world fits our own. We often arrive in middle age thinking so-and-so is a GENIUS and run to tweet about the lecture or viral clip we just just saw from them, confirming the opinionated exclamation.

But sometimes, those same people lose what made them incomparable in our eyes and we suddenly feel disappointed by them. Weird, isn't it? These three sure made me feel like a chump...

LYRICS

verse 1

Your silhouettes are cut so fine,
For yours or for your miu-miu line.
I'd read an article that said
forget the rent, give all your bread
For just one suit and shirt and shoes
Brand head to toe, who could refuse?
Your cuts they are incredible
The tech fabrics so flexible
But every season is the same
That's why I tire of your name.
Your collections, your runway
Shows you have little left to say.

chorus

Miuccia I gave you the best of my life,
And you threw it away,
Yeah!
Miuccia, I used to love you!

verse 2

I got to know your juicer first,
Where form and function were reversed.
You took the old and made it new,
When nobody else had a clue.
The changes you made are profound
Your accent never got you down.
Of the romantics, you are the king,
Because of the way you make the plastic sing.
But do we need another chair
To present at another fair?
Find something better to design,
Something that benefits mankind.

chorus

Philippe, I gave you the best of my life,
And you threw it away,
Yeah!
Philippe, I used to love you!

bridge

What happened everybody?
We gotta do more and talk less
We gotta live our lives before we do great work
We have to stop listening to people who tell us we're amazing!
Ugh... Alright,
Who's next?

verse 3

When E.T. went back up the skies,
The tears were flowing down my eyes.
You opened up the world to me,
A world of possibility.
Your tales of ordinary folks
Caught in extraordinary strokes
Inspired me to want to tell
My own stories and tell them well.
But then lost in a world you were
Told way too many times "Yes, sir!"
Now every new hero we meet
Feels like a new dead horse you beat.

chorus

Steven, I gave you the best of my life,
And you threw it away,
Yeah!
Steven, I used to love you!

(I used to love you…)
