This could be a long post or short one, we’ll have to see where it takes me. Basically this is just me having a moan about something that bothers me.
I hate this term, it annoys me more then nails on a chalkboard or squeaky cotton wool. I’m not sure where my hatred for this began or why it suddenly started to annoy me but one day I heard it and I was asking myself why? Why should I feel bad for liking this book or this music? It makes me happy.
I love Fifty Shade Of Grey! Yes it’s not the best book or particularly well written and the story line is not great but something about that book makes me happy. So why should I feel guilty about that? I love Grease 2! No it’s nowhere near as good as the first, in fact even loving it I can say it’s bloody awful but watching it and singing along to the dodgy songs makes me extremely happy. Who decided that we were supposed to feel guilty for liking something that make us happy, as long as it’s legal of course. Who decided it was OK to shame me for liking trashy romance books where everything is so cliched it makes you eyes roll in the back of your head permanently. I’m allowed to like films that have nothing of any substance in them and bad acting.
So here’s to liking whatever books, film and music you want! May you never feel guilty for liking something that makes you happy and never use the term guilty pleasure again!
