Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
is one of Jhené Aiko's favorite movies, and she includes on her Souled Out
album a song called "Eternal Sunshine" and another one titled "Spotless Mind
." Asked by The Fader
what she likes most about the film, she replied: "I wish it was real and you could only keep the good memories in your head."
"In a way, I sort of do that without obviously going to a clinic to get that done," Aiko continued. "After relationships, I'll gather all of this stuff that reminds me of my ex and throw it away. A good friend of mine once told me to get rid of that memory with the person. Like, if you used to go to a restaurant with this person, take someone else there and make better memories, which is really messed up but it works [laughs]. In a way, I feel like I do that so I'm not stuck in the past."
