I have never been super obsessed over a particular music group or band.
However I have a very passionate spot for insanely talented, truly smart and oh so quirky artists. Lady Gaga? Love you. Hard. I may not let my kid watch your videos or listen to your music (hell, I barely do), but we have long discussions about how kind and genuine you are in interviews and at one time you felt awkward, out of place and freakish. Look at you now.
Marshall Mathers, Eminem. You tortured, talented (and recovering) soul. I have a very soft spot for you. I know all the awful things that are said about you. I’m well aware of the awful things you sing about. But YOU. You. I’m convinced I could have been the girl to soften you, the one to change you. The one that every other girl would hate forever because I GOT YOU. Don’t worry, I’ve polled almost every girl I know, we all have the same soft spot for you. Most of them just won’t admit it.
Bruno Mars. I wanted to hate you. I DID HATE YOU. That baby face…goofy smile. “I’d catch a grenade for CHA?” “Put my hand on a blade for CHA?” For you. FOR YOU. Diction Mars. DICTION. But somewhere after all the CHA you won me over. I have no idea how it happened. And now you have a duet with my secret dirty? Fine. You win. I give up.
Jared Leto? You’re so strange, but…yum.
And last. Richard Marx. You are…wonderful. Timeless. You’ve aged well. You sing a love song like Ryan Gosling does a love scene. Right Here Waiting? I used to make out with
Tom Cruise my pillow to that song. Whenever you come on the radio? I have a moment. There’s something about you. I love you. That is all.
Any dirty musical love affairs you’d like to admit to?
