Please don’t tell me you love me. Or our car will break down in the middle of a country road.

I am often self-conscious when it comes to my likes and interests. I collect Kawaii stationery. I like romantic comedies. I’m fond of interior decorating shows and blogs. I watch Project Runway. It goes without saying I’m in touch with my feminine side.

I do have the tendency to avoid female pop music. It just feels like an area that is reserved for young girls and, well, I am neither. I am fond of Michelle Branch, Kelly Clarkson, Pink and a few others. I have to clarify something. I’m not as big of a fan as I often portray in my blog. I like her, but I’m not like an obsessed fan who has every CD, posters all over the world and a life-size cut out of her in my bedroom.

I still don’t have a 100% grasp on my music taste because, well, it’s all over the place. Here’s a quick sampling.

No, I’m not a White guy. I don’t even know how to classify my music taste. If someone were to ask me, “What kind of music do you listen to?” I’d just stare at them for a few moments and say, “Oh, a little bit of everything,” and if they ask for specifics, I stumble for like five minutes until I say a random mainstream artist that I kind of, sort of like. I wonder if other Asians do this. If you happen to be Asian, let me know.

IAlthough I am a little embarrassed about liking female pop music, I would not hesitate telling someone I like Michelle Branch. I do have a few guilty pleasures when it comes to female pop music. I like how all of these music videos tell a story.

A girl is having commitment issues, along with car issues.

Demi Lovato looks like she actually wants to kill herself in a bathtub. And she’s apparently having hallucinations that she’s climbing Mount Everest.

And, oh look, Adele is having a nice stroll at a park, and she’s trying really, really hard not to cry.

All kidding aside, the songs are all quite emotional and the music videos capture the raw emotion of each song. I see more videos of crying girls in bathtubs in our near future.

I know I have to stop thinking what others think of my personal taste. That’s hard to do when I’m listening to Lady Gaga and imagining a crowd of 100 people shaking their heads and giving me looks of disappointment and disgust.

  1. Please don’t be embarrassed to be yourself. Cliché, but the ones who matter won’t mind it anyway. 🙂 My younger brothers like female artists too and we don’t judge them for that.

    Do you, always. Don’t care about what others have to say, as long as you are not hurting anyone.

  2. It’s important to like what you like and not worry about what other people are thinking. Don’t conform, just be you! 😀

  3. I used to be really conscious of the things I like when I was in high school, but now I’m not bothered. I can’t believe I used to pretend not to like certain things because of other people, now. It really doesn’t matter if what you like is different, or even if it’s exactly the same as everyone else. As long as you’re happy!

  4. Be yourself and OMG. I found a fellow Project Runway fan! I love all those things and hell, I loved Hot Wheels and G.I Joes when I was younger. Be yourself and people will either accept you or not. You just need to accept yourself.

  5. Thank you for your comment on my blog. ? How are you doing?

    Speaking of super powers, I’d love to have the ability to be invisible whenever I want, you could even travel for free. HAHA!
