I’m not embarrassed by the artists/groups I listen to. I listen to them because I like their music and because their music makes me happy and touches me in some way or another. I’ve realized the reason I don’t talk about some of the music I listen to is because I’m embarrassed by is 97% of the people in the fandom of a particular artist and/or group. I wish I didn’t feel that way, but I’d prefer for people to know that I’m a fan of a group or artist because I like their music, not because of who they’re dating or not dating. The music is why I became a fan in the first place.
