We are going to explain “Star SHopping” lyrics by Lil Peep, all meanins behind every paragraph. To read the complete lyric click here.
On “Star Shopping,” Lil Peep talks about his feelings towards his relationship with a girl that is slowly starting to become impatient with him. He understands why she feels this way and is attempting to let her know how much he cares for her. He informs her that he just needs some time to get everything sorted out.
The song features Peep’s melancholy vocals over a sad, guitar-centered production by Kryptic, a producer that frequently collaborates with Lil Peep and other members of the GOTHBOICLIQUE.
The song was taken down from most streaming services due to a copyright issue with the sample that producer Kryptic used. In a series of tweets that have since been deleted, Peep’s estate claimed that they were working on attaining the rights for an official release of this song on streaming services.
Verse 1 – Losin’ your patience, and, girl, I don’t blame you
The Earth’s in rotation, you’re waitin’ for me (Yeah)
Look at my face when I fuck on your waist
‘Cause we only have one conversation a week
Time on Earth is measured in rotations of the earth (days and nights) and revolutions of the Earth around the sun (years).
Time is passing with every day and night while Peep’s mystery girl waits on him. With all this time going by, Peep understands that his girl can’t wait much longer.
Keeping with the heavy theme of unrequited love, Gus illustrates the awkward and antisocial aspects of the relationship. A lack of eye contact could suggest multiple things about what this girl feels about peep:
- Intimidation, the girl feels disheartened by peep’s reckless drug taking and feels dismayed by his appearance and provocative behavior.
- Lack of attraction, simply put, the girl has no feelings for Peep anymore, possibly hinting at how the girl is only in the relationship for self-gain, in other words, this girl only uses him to get money and fame. This is something peep has alluded to in the past.
- Unaffiliation, a lack of eye contact could suggest a dearth of knowledge you exist, meaning nothing other than she doesn’t want to notice peep.
- Anti-intimacy, the girl doesn’t like Peep at all, suggesting a conscious decision of making an effort to NOT look at him.
Peep could be referring to many people here and throughout the song, as he had been in many relationships before, notably that of Bella Thorne and his history with his on and off relationship with ‘Layla’ (aka toopoor). But, over the course of his 21 years, he has managed to enjoy a number of close romantic relationships.
