The lyrics tell the story of a guy who cheated on her
with a younger chick. She thought he was a flower, but uh, he turned out to be a weed. Original.
I walked a little slower just so I’d remain unknown
He met someone
My little piece of heaven has a secret he won’t tell
With half a smile he took her hand and then he walked away
I realized I wouldn’t see my boy after today
Fell in love with a dandelion and he’s all I ever had
At first he looked so sweet but in the end he tastes so bad..
He’s a dandelion he looks like everything I need
I thought he was a flower but he turned out a weed.
This isn’t a video for the song, just a bunch of stills of Nicole with the song playing in the background:
Nicole’s lovelife seems to be back on track. She’s going strong with former “Princes of Malibu” hottie Brody Jenner. Jenner’s ex, onetime “Laguna Beach” star Kristin Cavalleri, may have tried to get back at Nicole by wearing a “You can have him” T-Shirt and later opening flirting with Nicole’s ex and the most likely subject of the Dandelion song, DJ AM. Page Six reports that she was all over him at a party this week. For his part, AM seems to be enjoying being single. A different hot blonde known only as “Lauren” was spotted in his DJ booth on Friday night. It’s doubtful he’ll ever be spinning Richie’s tunes.
Update: Thanks to commenter Bobby J. for pointing out that this song is a cover, which means that there’s no reason to try and read anything about Richie’s love life in the lyrics.
Update: And thanks to the anonymous commentor for letting me know that this demo was recorded way back when she was with DJ AM. I guess we won’t be hearing it on her album. I found this through a YouTube search, so I didn’t have a lot of background information on it and just posted it with the assumption that it was new.
And AM’s girlfriend/companion for the night is said to be model Lauren Hastings.
Here are Nicole and Brody out holding hands in Malibu on 9/3. [via]
