Last night my friend Catie told me to look up “Jane Austen is My Homegirl Rap” on YouTube. With about 30,000 views this crazy hilarious rap involves the modern-day mom’s obsession with Austen and Downton Abbey. With phenomenal rhyming [“if we lived in a time that our favorite shows is, we’d probably have died from tuberculosis”] and hilarious footage of the women rapping, it’s sure to spark your attention.
Be sure to check this video out…although I’m not sure how Austen, herself a satirist extremely critical of her own culture and society, would feel about all of it.
[And Jane Austen, you will always be my homegirl.]
