Like Dave Grohl, I don’t believe in guilty pleasures.
You ever hear someone say something like “Pop music is my guilty pleasure,” or “Reality TV is my guilty pleasure”?
I don’t understand what there is to be guilty about.
If my brain enjoys listening to a certain song, then I like it. Doesn’t matter if it’s mainstream or disposable. I won’t be ashamed to admit I dig it.
If I find a television show entertaining, then I like it. I’m very open about the fact that I keep Real Housewives running constantly on the TV in my apartment.
If someone is going to judge your intelligence based on what sort of entertainment you like, what sort of hobbies you take up, or really anything else you enjoy, then they’re probably insecure themselves. “Guilty pleasures” are BS– I removed that term from my vocabulary years ago, and you should too!
