An Excerpt From You’re That Bitch & Other Cute Lessons About Being Unapologetically Yourself
By Bretman Rock
A Cute Intro
Growing up in the Philippines, I loved watching my grandma Lilang get ready for church. I’d lie on her fainting couch, mesmerized by her creative choices, like which of her three lipsticks she’d choose (usually auburn) and how she’d style her kinky hair with bangs. One magical morning before church, when I was four, she came over to me and put the tiniest amount of red blush on my cheeks. It was the very first time makeup ever touched my skin. I literally went to church feeling like a girl. It was the first time I fell in love with vanity. It was the first time I ever felt like that bitch.
Without even realizing it, my grandma had given me my superpowers.
Since that herstorical day, I’ve immigrated to Hawaii from the Philippines, become a digital superstar, and have figured out how to just be unapologetically me. My impulsive, spontaneous posts— taken while beating my face, donning corsets and pearls, working out, unboxing, eating breakfast cereal, jumping off my roof, whatevah the day may bring— are watched by millions globally and have led to some of my wildest dreams coming true. Like creating a makeup line with Wet n Wild that sold out in minutes. Or sitting front row at Fashion Week, and making award-winning shows. I’ve been a model for Nike and a cover girl for Playboy. I’ve done commercials with Lizzo. SZA and Ariana Grande follow me on social media. I got to meet RiRi. Thinking about all these accomplishments could make me cry— I won’t, though, because crying just makes me look so damn ugly.
Are you thinking, Who does this bitch think he is . . . Beyoncé? Girl, I may be writing this book at only twenty-three, but I’ve got stories to tell. For the last eight years I’ve shared so much of myself on Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube. But on social media I’m a curated brand— I don’t have time to show off my full self, or to explain who I really am in addition to the jokes and glamour. So you probably know Bretman Rock the comedian and extrovert who pole dances and calls everybody “bitch,” but you don’t really don’t know Bretman Sacayanan. These Bretmans are two different people, but they are both 1,000 percent me. And we’ve both lived lifetimes already. The essays you’re about to read are totally fresh, sort of like my mom’s vagina shampoo but even more tingly—they’re about being a queer first- generation Asian immigrant, who just happens to be Da Baddest content creator of all time.
I’m gonna talk more in depth about growing up in the Philippines, all of the Filipino cultural traditions and superstitions in-grained in me from an early age, being left behind with my dad when my mom and siblings moved to Hawaii, and how I learned how to speak English and become an entertainer by watching reality shows like A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila and America’s Next Top Model. And obviously, a big part of who I am is about being genderqueer (I mean, did you see my Playboy cover?). I have lots to say about it, and I hope it will not only help other LGBTQ+ people but also open the hearts, minds, and eyes of my straight fans. Let’s make one thing clear right off the bat: I identify as a human-fucking- being. I’ve always been a divine blend of masculine and feminine— so if I look like a lesbian after a bicep-bulging workout, call me he, but if I’m in full makeup wearing a Catholic schoolgirl plaid skirt and barrettes, call me she. I don’t mind, I’m cute either way! (Maybe I should just make my own gender at this point . . . I am a Bretman.)
I’m very proud of being LGBTQ+ and Filipino, so it’s an honor to be a pretty face for both underrepresented communities. Plus, Asian Americans and Asian immigrants are increasingly facing hate and violence, so I’m passionate about helping create more positive visibility for us— especially for brown Asians—I n entertainment, beauty and fashion. I want to make all of my communities proud— native, immigrant, Filipino, Hawaiian.
People often ask me what my beliefs are, and the answer is simple: I believe in myself, duh! I mean, I also believe in family, and my heritage. Like I may curse like a motherfuxin’ bitch, but I also embody the Aloha Spirit, which is carefree, kind, spiritual, and peaceful. Back to myself: I went from living in a house with twenty-five people to owning my own home on the island of Oahu. I am the American Dream and I made it happen by hustling my whole life. I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was a toddler, and all of the little businesses I started as a kid— from selling feather earrings plucked straight off my cousin’s cockfighting chickens to using makeup to cover up all the girls’ hickeys in high school—led to my success and prepared me for this wild-ass life I created.
And what’s a celebrity memoir without spilling some iced matcha latte about dating—I’ll tell you about how I lost my virginity at Disneyland, about being scared of white penises, and about falling in and out of love for the first time, stuff I’ve never talked about publicly. [Programming note: 99.9 percent of the stories I tell are true but some names have been changed to protect those bitches]. Like, how one among my largest accomplishments and blessings in life was not fucking anybody from my highschool— I didn’t date anybody the complete 4 years. Don’t shed tears of pity for me (even in the event you’re a cute crier)! Whereas my classmates have been busy getting STDs, I used to be busy turning into Bretman Rock.
You’re That Bitch displays all sides of me: I’m Bretman Rock, the entertainer and an extrovert, however typically I additionally simply wanna be Bretman Sacayanan in my crop high and shorts, consuming my rooster unbothered. I’m simply an extraordinary gorl— on the similar time, I’m additionally that bitch each minute, which means I’m all the time authentically me. Typically I’m lazy, I get bored, I get scared, I really feel ignored, I really feel comfortable, I get foolish, I choke by myself phrases. I’ve actually been recognized with ADHD, so like my movies and my thoughts, my e-book is organized chaos, visually attractive (of courz), and filled with essays, anecdotes, journal entries, and recommendation from my life that I need to move on to you. Give me any subject, and I’ll inform you a joke in the way in which solely I can. However bitch, my tales even have depth.
The total Bretman shouldn’t be solely what the web sees—there are such a lot of completely different sides to me. Like how I’m smarter than individuals assume. I really like studying new issues and attempting the whole lot not less than as soon as. Most of all, I don’t like labels, and I refuse to be pigeonholed. On the finish of the day, I’m grateful for every single day and each likelihood I get to share my mild with the world— whichever side of Bretman is perhaps shining brightest at any given second. So even in the event you’re not additionally a genderqueer Asian influencer, I believe you’ll relate to my tales. These essays are about not becoming in however studying the right way to not give a fux, the right way to exude easy confidence and win individuals over with attraction and humor, being genuine and authentic, and turning your fantasies into actuality the Bretman Rock approach—that’s, doing the least whereas wanting essentially the most. I need you to learn to cease and scent the flowers and simply notice: Wow, I’m that bitch too.
Okay, I’m gonna go write about Jollibee in my journal, and get sweaty, stoned, and emotional. I hope you get pleasure from You’re That Bitch. And in the event you don’t, you’ll be able to all the time eat a dick. I’m simply kidding. I hope you could have a cute day!
