I've seen the world, done it all,
had my cake now...
Diamonds brilliant
in Bel Air now...

Hot summer nights, mid July,
when you and I were forever wild!
The crazy days, city lights,
the way you'd play with me like a child...

Will you still love me
when I'm no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
when I got nothing but my aching soul?

I know you will, I know you will,
I know that you will...
Will you still love me
when I'm no longer beautiful?

I've seen the world, lit it up
as my stage now,
channeling angels
in the new age now...

Hot summer days, rock 'n' roll,
the way you play for me at your show!
And all the ways I got to know
your pretty face and electric soul...

Will you still love me
when I'm no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
when I got nothing but my aching soul?

I know you will, I know you will,
I know that you will...
Will you still love me
when I'm no longer beautiful?

Dear Lord, when I get to heaven,
please let me bring my man;
when he comes, tell me that you'll let him in;
Father, tell me if you can!

Oh, that grace, oh, that body!
Oh, that face makes me wanna party!
He's my sun, he makes me
shine like diamonds...

And will you still love me
when I'm no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
when I got nothing but my aching soul?

I know you will, I know you will,
I know that you will...
Will you still love me
when I'm no longer beautiful?

Will you still love me
when I'm no longer beautiful?
Will you still love me
when I'm not young and beautiful?

Lana Del Rey, Young and Beautiful (from Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby)

I have to say, this has got to be one of my favorites right here... I based this one out of ~JAVE-the-13's Gem wallpaper that also features Rarity, which, in turn, was inspired by =Elalition's wallpapers and various designs; I took inspiration from him as well.

Representative of this wallpaper is the mood of the colors. In Lana Del Rey's song, Young and Beautiful, there's a somber mood with lyrics that express the worries about aging and whether or not her lover would still accept her or not. I translated that into the main color palate for this piece, but also added some light colors, too - they represent the hope that is inside her (in the song, Del Rey; in the wallpaper, Rarity; not really evident in the lyrics, though) and the light that encourages her not to worry.

Here's a textless version of this wallpaper if anybody doesn't think the text is young and beautiful (see what I did there?).

Songs listened to during the making of this wallpaper

PERFECT RARITY SONG.

Of course, Rarity. Mainly because you are a cartoon and do not age.
