My Guilty Pleasure Artists

I don’t like necesarrily talking about this kind of things so publicly because it feels hypocritical. I don’t like mainstream things but you know when something is either really good, or really catchy and it just stays on it’s own? And then you have that urge in the back of your head to just want more and more and that’s how you start liking the song. Well I have one of those songs right now… A few actually. I guess you could call them Guilty Pleasure Artists.

I used to LOVE all of the following artists, but years back, when they just started out their careers on Disney channel, be it singing carreers or acting:
– Demi Lovato 
– Selena Gomez 
In rare occasions: Miley Cyrus 
– Taylor Swift. 

Basically that gang that’s been on and off for years.
I loved Hannah Montana but I’m one of those people that does not like Miley’s way of expressing her youth ending and her growing up. Growing up also means maturing and she doesn’t appeal that to me. But I do understand she’s going through a LOT of stuff and in no way am I a hater, please don’t think that if you like Miley. I rarely listen to her older songs even though I know all of them.

Oh oh! Isn’t it annoying when you’re in a group of people or just in school and you hear, someone else is playing a mainstream song like Anaconda by Nicki Minaj and you’ve only heard the song once, but a line or two got stuck in your head, which can easily happen. Like; My anaconda don’t, my anaconda don’t, my anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns hun. 

That’s one sentence and it’s bound to stick ’cause it’s soo catchy. (I hate the song though). Isn’t it annoying how you can just lip sing a part of a song, you don’t have to like it but just a shame to not go along with it, and someone attacks you & says, ”Oh my god, you listen to that?! How can you?!”. And then you have to explain for 20 minutes that you know it ’cause it’s flipping EVERYWHERE.
It’s really annoying to me because our society is known by patterns and people love to put you in stereotypical groups. If you like Nicki, you’re a hipster. If you like Taylor, Demi, Selena, Ariana Grande, you’re a pop junkie and I don’t even know. There are people who are proud of those titles and that’s great if you do, less stress for you. But personally, I don’t care what I’m called as long as you have a damn good justification as too why you are naming me something. Be well informed and I’m all good. I’m not going to argue with the truth.
Otherwise, it irks me.

Ahem, where was I…
But I do like a couple of Miley’s ‘newer’ songs {By newer I mean ever since she changed her style, I was late with all of them.} like, Wrecking Ball.

Demi, well, I have always liked her. She’s kind off inspirational to me sometimes even though, once again, their newer looks and attitudes turn me off. They’re not there to please only me, I do know that. It may just be that I’m used to their 15 year old innocent faces and their way of growing up is a lot different than mine.
She’s one of those artists that didn’t go to crime, drugs and alcohol and I respect that.

There’s nothing particularly wrong with her in my head, but I guess I’M not attracted that much.
Again, I rarely go back to her older songs, like Give Your Heart A Break, I think that’s the only one. But, her newer songs, I didn’t want to like them when I first heard them. They grew on me though. Like, Heart Attack, Really Don’t Care. Does Let it go count? I really did like that one.
Really Don’t Care is on my everyday list, at least once and that’s definitely a guilty pleasure.

Selena, ah. I don’t follow the names of her albums, but what was the album where songs like Birthday were on? That album I did not like. The Album that contained mostly party and chill out songs, that all gave the impression off You Only Live Once kind of thing. Ew, get out of here. I do not like that sentence.

Yeah we all live once so let’s fu*k that one life as fast as we can. Let’s drink, party, try out mild drugs, not like it’s gonna do anything, they’re mild right? Let’s jump off a fence of a forbiden department and let the cops find us. ”Fu*k the police!”.

(Probably most) Teenagers don’t have restrainct to only try something ONCE. If you can’t have that self-concious, I don’t think you should do it at all.

I’m just gonna repeat myself on the fact that I rarely go back to their old songs, but from Selena, there is one song I don’t know why I like, but I like it.

When I first heard it, I did not like it. All I heard is two verses and the line ”Love will remember” being repeat over 18 times. I decided not to be ignorant and listen to it again and it broke me for a split second. I still don’t hear much emotion in her voice or depth in the actual song, but I love it at the same time. There’s something about the lyrics…

”We used to be inseperable. 
I used to think that I was irreplacable. 
We lit the whole word up, before we blew it up. 
I still don’t know just how we screwed it up. 
Forever, forever, forever…”.

I’m starting to realize something.
It may just be that I’m awfully bitter these past ”few” months and that not one love song hits me as much. You know how when you’re in love, every love song makes you go through the roof and every word makes sense? I guess I need to fall in love hehe.

Oooh Taylor, you and your boyfriends and ex’s and complicated relations and friendships. Yet you’re here, still writing about your boyfriend’s, ex’s, complicated relations and friendships.
I have no idea if she has a new song or not. I don’t follow this girl at all. All I can say, is I like her old songs and she is definitely a big guilty pleasure.
I THINK know almost all of her songs and I can’t not sing to them but even though, deep down, I dislike them. I really love Ours. That’s the only song that gives me feels. Makes me feel like I’m the one singing to someone I love.

Don’t your worry your pretty little mind.
People throw rocks at things that shine
and life makes love look hard. ❤ 

I must be really bitter though. She has so much love and break up songs. I sometimes feel like I’ve blocked my emotions from evolving. Right now It’s good. I’m too tired.
And I actually lost track as to why I was writing this… I only wanted to mention Selena Gomez and Love will remember but that ecalated quickly. If you came down to this line, I congratulate you. One of my pointless blogposts.

Question of the day: Do you have some guilty pleasure artists? Who are they? If not, good for you! 

One thought on “My Guilty Pleasure Artists

  1. I love what you said about stereotypes. Just cause I like one or two songs does not mean I like pop.
    But oh my goodness I love Taylor so much. I listen to her older stuff when I’m really sad and then I just cry in the shower and yeah. But she does have an album coming out this month and I’m SO EXCITED. So yeah, definitely Tay.

    I can’t think of any others. Maybe just pop music that came out when I was in elementary, cause it’s sort of part of me. Oh and soundtracks to musicals. Cats, My Fair Lady, Rent, Phantom of the Opera….

    Okay that was a super long comment sorry ❤
