There are few harder issues to tackle than the groupie problem, the ladies with low self-esteem who throw themselves at you because you're famous, or you happen to look a little like Usher. Aziz Ansari writes about this very problem and how he was kicking it last weekend with his homeboys Usher and Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman in the Groupie Confessions from Complex Blog:
I know everyone thinks musician is the profession that leads to the
most groupie love, but these people have never went out hunting for
pussy with a Nobel Prize Winner in Economics. These dudes roll
is able into waltz into any nightclub/bar in America and within a few
minutes drop the fact that he predicted the current financial crisis
months ago and next thing you know, girls
are losing their shit. Neither Nick nor myself made out with anyone
that night, but Paul made out with enough women for all three of us.
At the end of the evening fellow Times Op-Ed columnist Bob Herbert
pulled up in a limo and opened up the door and said ‚ÄúWhattttup!!! Next
stop‚Äîthe hot tub!‚Äù The top of the limo then retracted revealing a HOT
TUB IN THE BACK OF THE LIMO. The two Op-Ed writers hopped into the limo
based hot tub with 7 girls and peeled out quicker than the economic
downturn affected Iceland. We never saw them again.
I suspect part of this diary might be faked, so Book Publishers, take heed, you might not want to buy this as a memoir without some fact checking. Could Krugman really have predicted the full extent of the current financial crisis? Though it is pretty amazing that he was able to fly a hang-glider back to a plane that had a busted emergency exit. That would be exciting to read about.
