the anomaly that is me

confessions of a 29-year-old

I have a secret. A guilty pleasure, if you will. I didn’t want to admit it and I tried hard to deny it…

…but I really like the new Ashlee Simpson CD.

Don’t judge me based on this. It’s not entirely my fault. Shawn got it for me for Christmas. It’s really the lesser of two evils. He told me he was standing there, in HMV holding Ashlee in one hand and – gasp! – Hillary Duff in the other. I don’t know what posessed him to even pick up the Hillary Duff album, I don’t think I have ever expressed any interest in her. Whereas, yes, I have liked a couple of Ashlee Simpson songs.

So, I gave it a chance and I have gotten into the album. Oh, dear.

I am a sucker for pop. It’s something I have to live with. 🙂

    Just this morning I walked by the tv and her video was on. I commented; “I really like this song… but I can’t stand to look at her” (it was “I didn’t steal your boyfriend…”). I just can’t stand looking at her or her sisters. They are hard on the eyes.

    i’m exactly the opposite, i think she’s hot! i mean, she’s everything that i should hate, using the tough girl image to differentiate her from her sister, but man, she can pull it off. though i hate her music, cuz, well, i’m a music elitest like that. sorta. hehe.

    Cat, I too sometimes succumb to pop or what I like turns into pop…either way, it is hard to admit and only a select few are aware…hee hee.

    I know for a fact though that I hate the new Mariah and I wish the radio would stop playing her….ugh, I have to switch the channel everytime any of it comes on.

    I love pop just as much as the next person.

    Once you come to terms with that, it’s all good.

    However…Ashlee??????? I might have to draw a line there.

    (I did see the video for “Love” or whatever, and it was catchy.)

    There’s nothin wrong with likin a little melody!

    Brian got me the new Ashlee Simpson CD for Christmas too!!! I love it! It’s in the CD player of my car. I’m a dork. I can’t help it. The Hilary Duff CD isn’t so bad. Darby got it for Christmas.
