Ask the Boss Bitch!

Hip-hop MC Priceless Diamonds describes herself as a "boss bitch" who grew up boosting clothes and turning the occasional trick. She's no angel, but she's got advice. So listen up, y'all.

Where can older folks go to chill in this town without getting overrun by young gunslingers?

I like to go to the Green Duck Lounge sometimes for a cocktail on the low. Last time I was there, some older women were there, and they looked good. I asked them how they kept it so tight, and they said they took care of themselves, ate right and exercised. You shoulda seen 'em in there competing, feuding over the one O.G. man in there. I'm thinking, If this ain't high school, I don't know what is. Basically, they wanted to let us know that women age like wine; the older they get, the better they are.

Should a man resort to stuff like opening car doors and helping a woman on with her coat to impress her?

I'm not easily impressed. Opening doors and helping with a coat is old-fashioned, but it's still respectful. In the new millennium, they need to do more, though. You gotta come through in a Maserati to impress me. I'll settle for help on rent and bills, not that I need it, but he's gotta know it costs in this world for the things that I need, and it impresses me if he's interested in my needs. But I ain't with all that opening-the-door stuff. I wouldn't stop him from doing it. But I don't need help with the door and my coat. I need help financially. Time is priceless, it's worth more than money, so if he don't have money, he better have a lot of time.
