So, I'm sure you get it-- just how much this concert meant to me. The world knows about my love for Damon Albarn 🌎❤️ But let me explain a few things... I have never felt so empowered by my passions until this concert. It was a big step for me when I saw Graham Coxon (a.k.a. Damon's bff👌), but this concert was intensified.
Spent hundreds of dollars, warded off stress monsters, got there mega early, preached the name of self-love and stood my ground.
This man is my everything. I do not know why my soul picked him out of all people, but it did and I cannot shake that bond. It has been a wonderful, heartfelt journey of loving him. He is a talented musician and the most incredible person.
Last night, I stood in the third row, and Damon looked me in the eye... A small action, but one that I have been waiting for. Almost ten years for that millisecond of connection.
I struggled to put a rose in my hair, earlier in the day, to sneak it to him. Quite hard at the big venues. It was a success, but I was just out of reach from him 💔 I gave Damon a rose last year and promised him (and Graham) that as long as they come, I'll keep giving. Cuz they give me the strength to move on like no others.
I will never forget this night. Any time with Damon is the best I could ever live. Just to see his golden smile, hunched posture, theatrics, grooves, heart on his sleeve. (I'm not sure if other fans noticed, but he raised his palms up to the heavens for the deceased Bobby Womack, during my fave song "Stylo". Just that deep-rooted appreciation is so admirable. Bobby has been gone for a while, but Damon never let go of his love for him). Just like I will never stop loving my Albarn ❤️ #gorillaz #damonalbarn #thenownow #boston #tdgarden
