Pure Kunst

If you’re unsure of the meaning of bootylicious, grab your ‘front bottom’ and make a late night visit to the Caravan of Love because Destiny’s Child’s kunst can’t even compare to the gorgeous Caravan kunst  – and this time they’re searching for purity.

The Bedroom Philosopher: Songs from the 86 Tram
