She has created a wonderful thing with Notorious R.B.G. I will admit I had to be told by my law clerks, what’s this Notorious. And they — they explained that to me.
It took her 17 years after his death, but 81-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is finally aware of the Notorious B.I.G. Ginsburg’s law clerks informed her after first showing her the “Notorious RBG” Tumblr that was created in the summer of 2013. Ginsburg revealed this and other fun facts in an interview with Katie Couric that touched on her women-hating male colleagues, her longevity on the court, and, most important, her new awareness of the Brooklyn hip-hop legend and her own meme-ification.
“I will admit I had to be told by my law clerks, what’s this Notorious,” Ginsburg said, phrasing that sentence in the most perfect way imaginable.
