“I’m in a band” (OH DEAR)
Why is it that every man you think could be attractive – or hell, is attractive – turns out to be in a band and obsessed with/self defines with reams of obscure music that is so far from Rihanna (I love you, Rihanna), Timbaland, Missy Elliot, the Beatles, Beethoven, Brahms, Tosca and SALT n PEPA that it just hurts? Why have I encountered so many guitar obsessions over my 14 or so years of male-fancying?
Why do men think it’s attractive to pick up that hackneyed instrument of “bad romance” (thanks Lady Gaga) and strum some dull bit of folk or perhaps their own invention?
Why do they endlessly post things about “dubstep” this and “night” that and promote their websites about music and their bands and funk and what have you? Honestly, nothing is less attractive. If I’m going to be a groupie, it’s going to be for someone who is a star of stage, screen or literature.
