Like We Was on E

When "What's Luv" first hit the radio, I didn't realize the line, "We be freaking all night like we was on E" was a reference to having sex while on ecstasy.

I honestly thought it was an E! (Entertainment Television) reference. I pictured E!'s coverage of post-Grammy parties with all of the stars sipping champagne and freak dancing. As I saw it, Fat Joe was just saying that they were partying so hard it was as if they were being televised.

Clearly, I was a very sheltered 18-year-old. Maybe if I attended more actual parties rather than staying home to watch late-night cable coverage of celebrities dancing, I'd have had a clue.

I think I'd still rather be on E! than E, though.
