In 1968, during the administration of US President Lyndon B. Johnson, Eartha Kitt encountered a substantial professional setback after she made anti-war statements during a White House luncheon. Kitt was invited to the White House luncheon and was asked by Lady Bird Johnson about the Vietnam War. She replied: “You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed. No wonder the kids rebel and take pot.”
During a question and answer session, Kitt stated:
The children of America are not rebelling for no reason. They are not hippies for no reason at all. We don’t have what we have on Sunset Blvd. for no reason. They are rebelling against something. There are so many things burning the people of this country, particularly mothers. They feel they are going to raise sons — and I know what it’s like, and you have children of your own, Mrs. Johnson — we raise children and send them to war.
Her remarks reportedly caused Mrs. Johnson to burst into tears and led to a derailment in Kitt’s career

“she was special and unique because unlike other girls she read a book and drank a tea and didnt talk about clothes”
young adult authors everywhere (via klefable)
#she wasn’t pretty like the other girls but she was skinny and white and conventionally attractive
#she was also the hetero and she liked to look at the stars at night
#she was clumsy and awkward but not in a determental way only a cute way#she didn’t like to talk to other girls bc they liked frivolous things that she was above
#And she was an old soul who raised herself, also her eyes were deep pools
#And she didn’t wear makeup but it was okay because she had flawless skin anyway
#Additionally she was so kooky and crazy, but only the adorable, functioning in life kind, where she built little paper ships and put them on her head #not the extreme-ocd-i-am-unable-to-leave-the-house or i-have-panic-attacks-and-it-feels-like-i-am-dying way.
#She could say <3 out loud #with perfect pronunciation and though not every guy melted #that one loner guy who played by his own rules who had built a tower of ice around his soul was warmed by her quirky campiness.

Baked some iPhone cookies to trick cops into pulling me over, then I just take a bite and ask if cookies are against the law.
