I’m Turning in my Music Whore Card

As long as you love me
We could be starving
We could be homeless
We could be broke

As long as you love me
I’ll be your platinum
I’ll be your silver
I’ll be your gold

I have always fancied myself to be a music whore. I don’t usually like mainstream music. I mean, I do, but I like the obscure shit too. And don’t get me started on 80’s music. Love 80’s music! I’m not much of a pop princess. I think most of it is drivel. Β And annoying! And loud! I’m all for loud, but the music has to be good.

Imagine my chagrin when I started singing along to a Justin Bieber tune. I have a real problem with parents that pimp out their kids and make them superstars at such a young age. I don’t believe he gets the chance to be a normal kid. I mean he appeals to young girls that really don’t know what good music is yet. All the while missing out on his childhood and teenage years. I don’t think it’s fair.

For some reason the song, As Long as You Love Me has become a lovely ear worm. When it comes on the radio, I crank it up. The chorus is the hook, for sure. It resonates with me. The lyrics are simple. Thus why they appeal to me. It kills me that the Biebs is the person singing it. Why can’t Billy Joe Armstrong from Green Day sing the song? Or Max Bemis from Say Anything. Why, oh why does it have to be Justin? And why, oh why do I have to like it so much? I even like Big Sean’s part and I HATE rap unless it’s Tupac!

So today I will admit that I like a Bieber song. It does not mean that I’m going to follow him on the road. Because, well, that would be super creepy! And I promise, promise, promise that I will never, ever write about Justin Bieber again! Please take my music whore card and give it to someone more deserving. Thank you.

I don’t know if this makes sense but
You’re my hallelujah
Give me a time and place
I’ll rendezvous it
I’ll fly it to it
I’ll beat you there
Girl you know I got you

  1. You Just Lost Sooooooooooo Many Cool Points 😦
    I Love That You’re Willing To Admit It, So That Part Earned You Some Points…
    …But The Fact It’s Justin Beaver Is Simply Sickening.
    I Need To Lay Down.

    • I know what you mean Bradley. It makes me sick to admit it. I hate it. Why oh why do I like it??? I’m so cool but I like the Bieb’s song. Please don’t leave me!! Hahahahahahaha!

      I need to take a shower after such a confession. Gah!!!!

      Love you too my love. Giggle. πŸ˜‰

  2. I didn’t realize he was the singer at first. And wish I still didn’t know. πŸ˜‰ I do love that line in the rap part about the grass being green where you water it. Lots of truth to that.

    • I completely agree with you my dear. I wish I still didn’t know he sang it. And the rap about the grass being greener where you water it is spot on. πŸ˜‰ It doesn’t mean we are any less cool because we like one Bieber song.

  3. Its the lyrics that matter. I actually don’t know this song, but I admit to liking 2 bieber songs. I’m okay with it. πŸ™‚

    • I’m okay with it too. But I feel so uncool about it. I do love the lyrics. They speak to me. You’re right, that’s all that matters. I love your toe pic btw. So damn cute. πŸ˜‰

  4. Since there are four other songwriters credited on the song, you’re allowed to like it. I don’t know how much the Bieb’s contribution was to the lyrics so I won’t say what I think. πŸ˜‰

  5. I also love me some 80s music and have always been a grade A music whore. You are better woman than I for admitting to bielibing in one of his songs…as I do too.

  6. I think Justin Bieber has a very nice voice and he’s very entertaining and a good dancer — he’s very talented and I don’t care who knows that I think this — and I’m a progressive death metal fan. Wear it proud!
