‘Im building a brand, i’m always busy, sometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beast’
- HONEY and Nicki Minaj (2023/2012)
This is a story about HONEY, coming of age in late stage hypercapitalism. She wants so much for herself, but she has to confront the reality of life now, the hustle, the grind, and the slow destruction of ourselves caught in the game. A meme, an alien, an NPC, every girl just tryna survive this world - by becoming a chat bot. Think Elizabeth Holmes meets Katya, The Young Girl and Julia Fox. Supported by her partner in crime BF fumbling her way Daria style through coding and bluffing to the investors. A camp, low fi, video game, YouTube comedy, TV and friendship inspired ride.
