If she really truly believes it's beautiful when young musicians go out on a hot flame of drugs and depression, why doesn't she just off herself? I have a low tolerance for manipulative, egomaniacal behavior, and usually have to remind myself that the person might be mentally ill.

It made the bullshit easier to take, knowing she was in my corner. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For Marvel Comics, see X-Men.
