Discussion: What Are The Songs You’re Embarrassed To Like?
I recently discovered how much I love that Pussycat Dolls song, “When I Grow Up.” So that’s why when you visit my Facebook page it says I’ve played it 562 times, in case you were wondering. The thing is, I don’t want anybody to know I’m blasting that shit, lip syncing, dancing around my apartment in underwear and black socks, no shirt, like I’m the badest Pussycat Doll up in here. I certainly don’t want Spotify to know about it because he tells on me every time. But why should I be embarrassed? It’s just a song.
