OK, let’s all grow old gracefully, but I for one want to keep my finger on the pulse and so knowing the latest slang is my way of being Gucci with today’s way of the world (You need to read on further to understand).

Here is some top slang to help you maybe not physically but certainly act like you were 20 years old all over again.

“Tea.” = “gossip.”  So if you “spill tea” about someone, you’re talking behind their back.

“Beat.” = applying make-up as in “I gotta go beat my face”.

“Snatched.” = It means you look good aka you’re “looking snatched”.
