Did you know that Madonna-progeny Lourdes Ciccone has her own language? Okay, not really, but she does have a particular brand of blog-slang. The ladies over at Fashionista have compiled a pretty comprehensive and hilarious Lola-dictionary of some of the pop-princess' favorite terms—words that make recurring appearances on her blog. Like: "Mehmehmehmehmeh: Context (not that it helps here): “Ok so as you all know Material Girl is OFFICIALLY coming out in like a week. Mehmehmehmehmeh. Awesome or what?!!! YESSS,” and “It was lovely blogging to you all, please keep reading and don’t forget to bring your own toilet paper to festivals. mehmehmehmeh.” Translation: “I’m an excited LOL cat."" [Fashionista]
