So I’ve been thinking about the lyrics to “Look At Me Now” a lot since we covered it on the show.  Here is my attempt to deconstruct what Chris Brown is saying in this song.

Yellow model chick
My only thought here is that this may be a reference to dating a light-skinned black girl. Reference:

Yellow bottle sipping
Must be Veuve Clicquot.

Yellow Lamborghini
A lot of fast driving types go for the yellow sportscars over the red ones.

Yellow top missing
It’s a convertible.

Yeah, yeah, that shit look like a toupee
I don’t know who he’s talking to here. I doubt many of the haters from his youth are now wearing toupees. Or are they?
(He MIGHT still be talking about the convertible top – Nick)

I get what you get in ten years, in two days
I wonder what he hopes to accomplish pointing this out to people. Could I use this? I imagine myself trying to get a better table at a restaurant by telling the host “I get what you get in ten years, in seven years.”

Ladies love me
Impressive given his record.

I’m on my Cool J
Obviously LL Cool J now works for Chris Brown, and he’s “on” him because he likes to ride LL Cool J around like a pony. That’s how you know Chris Brown has a lot of money.

If you get what I get, what would you say?
… I wouldn’t brag about how rich I was.

She wax it all off
Her vagina. But who is he referring to? When did we start talking about a girl? Has this whole song been about a girl? Maybe he’s referring to LL Cool J again.

Mr. Miyagi
“Wax on, wax off”, this is a hilarious joke.

And them suicide doors
I think he’s referring to a vagina here. I like this metaphor. Her vagina is like a door that opens and invites you to come inside to die.
