BAE

Is there anyone out there that doesn’t know the definition of “bae”?
Well if you’re like my 85 year old grandmother, who doesn’t, then this Time magazine article may have been right for you. Time, in an effort to pop culturalize itself, decided to define the slang term.

On Wednesday, Pharrell dropped a video for his new single, “Come Get It Bae,” which may immediately raise some questions, such as “Come get what?” and “What in the world does bae mean, anyway?”

The short answer: Though this word was used in the 1500s to refer to sheep sounds, today bae is used as a term of endearment, often referring to your boyfriend or girlfriend. Or perhaps a prospect who might one day hold such a lofty position.

Say, for instance, you post a picture of you on a yacht with Beyonce and you just so happen to be Jay-Z. You might give that photo a caption like, “Just another Tuesday with my bae. #surfbort”

Thanks, Time. Now let’s see how long it is before ‘bae’ is Columbused. Give Miley Cyrus another month before she reinvents Hurricane Chris’, “Hey Bay, Bay”.
Black twitter took time out of their busy day to create #TimeTitles and it’s nothing short of tear-jerking hilarious.  This reminds me why there are some aspects of social media that I love.
