Elle Varner has a “teeny little tiny little temper.” She reveals this teeny-tiny detail about herself on “Tiny Temper,” a demo that didn’t receive a proper commercial release. The amusing track finds the sublime songwriter singing about what she’d do to a cheating lover.
Baking him a cake sprinkled with
love ricin (à la Walter White), burning down his house (à la TLC’s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes) and vandalizing his innocent Range Rover with a golf club (à la Tiger Woods’ wife) are a few things “Gina”—Elle’s very own “Sasha Fierce”—would do if provoked.
Listen: Elle Varner – “Tiny Temper”
We’d advise Iman Shumpert to do right by Elle…or learn to sleep with one eye open.
Telling quirky, entertaining and effectively profane stories seems to be Elle’s niche. “WTF,” “Oh What A Night” and “So Fly” are other songs that display her knack for vividly illustrating stories solely with words. (It’s still a gift when those words are matched with visual accompaniments, though. Have you seen the “WTF” video? Neither have I.)
