Do movies, songs, or other forms of artistic expression easily make you cry? Tell us about a recent tear-jerking experience!
It’s actually surprising that it is 9 am and I have not shed a tear yet. If something moves me to tears, I don’t mind the emotion and will cry about it. I’m an highly-sensitive person (or HSP, sorry if you’re tired of hearing about it.)
However, I do have a bad memory so it’s taking a moment for me to remember when was the last time art moved me. So, until I remember I’ll be telling you about the last time I cried. My best friend Evie, has a diet of cheese, tortillas and wine. Seriously, she won’t even throw some spinach or chicken in her ghetto quesadilla. She told me she had a stuffed avocado for lunch on Tuesday, I was literally so proud of her, I shed real tears in public. Who cares who’s watching? I have this very rational fear that my dearest friend will perish from malnutrition like she lives in a third world country, so I was moved to tears that she had vegetables.
The last time art moved me tears? There’s this song by Beyonce and Frank Ocean called Superpower. I don’t know if it’s the song or the music video concept or the combination of both but it moves me to tears every time I watch it. It’s a song about love but the video is so emotionally charged with angry anarchists. It’s the best combination ever.
Look at Beyonce and Kelly giving FACE! Yes!! Isn’t it sad how no one really cares about Michelle?
I lose it whenever I watch this video… it strikes a chord within me. I will go cry about it now.
