10 Songs I Should Probably Stop Loving But Can't

10 Songs I Should Probably Stop Loving But Can't

Yes, I know every word and I'm not ashamed.

Wallpapers Craft

I am obsessed with finding new amazing music. But there is nothing like an old jam that you are a little ashamed of but just love so much and know every word to.

I could take pride in the fact that I love learning about different music and take ownership of some pretty pretentious playlists ("Oh, this band? You've probably never heard of it..."). But very often my Spotify goes into a sneaky "private session" so that I can enjoy some of my favorite tunes in peace, without receiving snapchats of my music feed that my friends take to judge me. These are my 10 guilty pleasures that I should probably stop loving, as a respectable music snob that I am. But I can't. And I won't.

1. "No Scrubs" by TLC

If you are not familiar with this song, educate yourself immediately. This piece of art has taught me everything I know about how to firmly decline a persistent and messy fellow when he tries to holla at me from the passenger seat of his best friend's ride. I even have a whole dance routine for this.

2. "Bills, Bills, Bills" by Destiny's Child

I am very musically diverse and enjoy many genres and styles. I'm actually more alternative music - oriented. But I can't live without my old school R&B! They just don't make music like that anymore. This is a gem. And the theme of broke boyfriends was just a popular issue in a lot of those songs! Nobody wants a scrub or a good-for-nothin-type-of-brother.

3. "Thnks fr th Mmrs" by Fall Out Boy

Best. Bridge. Ever. This song's structure and chord progressions are actually quite genius and I've never stopped marveling over it.

4. "Suga Suga" by Baby Bash & Frankie J

This tune is all kinds of ridiculous with its questionable lyrics and a cheesy track. But I barely ever skip this song when it comes on shuffle - it's simply the best to jam to. And everyone loves the "witcho sweet honey buns" line.

5. "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson

Hell hath no fury like an middle school girl who just got her little heart broken. This song is all of us. You are lying to yourself and everybody else if you say that you've never screamed this song on top of your lungs feeling all the feels.

6. "U Make Me Wanna" by Usher

"If love doesn't feel like 90's R&B, I don't want it" - the popular Pinterest quote is most likely talking about this early classic by baby Usher. This song is just so smooth, it gives me goosebumps every time.

7. "Catching Feelings" by Justin Bieber

The good old Biebs was too precious in his "Boyfriend" stage. Once you give this a listen, you just can't resist the purity of the song's message and the underrated charm of Justin's adolescent vocals. I still can't get over the delicious harmony in the chorus. I am not a belieber but this song always gets me right in the feels and memories of my first love.

8. "Change Your Ticket" by One Direction

I am not a belieber but I am a directioner all the way. This genius tune actually sounds like something The 1975 would have written a couple years ago. The FOUR album is the epitome of boyband perfection and the best thing that's ever happened to One Direction. It was never the same after. Actually, let's not talk about One Direction. I am still grieving.

9. "Cop Car" by Sam Hunt

I don't like country music. But some country is acceptable. Like Sam Hunt, who is actually not even that country. However, he did write this song for Kieth Urban, who is like the main country guy, isn't he? I love harmonizing to this song obnoxiously, pretending I'm in an episode of Nashville. I also have the biggest crush on Sam Hunt so that doesn't help me to get over this song either.

10. "Hey There Delilah" by Plain White T's

This song is awful but it used to be all I cared about in 7th grade. I even remember crying over it because I knew in my heart that Delilah and the singer guy just won't end up together. This tune is somewhat primitive and so sappy but somehow feels very sincere. I still shed an internal tear whenever this song comes on.

11. Any musical interaction involving Drake & Rihanna

Actually, they are not not on this list because I feel like I should give up enjoying their music. In fact, everyone who knows me even a little bit knows that I am a fan of October's Very Own fo lyfe. RihRih and Drizzy are on this list simply because they are just playing with my heart in this mysterious relationship situation. And I gotta say... I am SO here for this! Welcome to the Drake and Rihanna ship, ALL ABOARD!!!

I've always been interested in any product that can get me the Jennifer Lopez-esque natural glow. I'm Indian and have medium-toned skin, so getting darker was never really the goal. Rather, I've always looked for a product that would even out my skin tone and cellulite, basically making my legs look Photoshopped.

Now more than ever we're craving that healthy, tan glow most of us only get after spending a week poolside with margarita in hand. We may not be spending an SPF-soaked summer hitting on our local lifeguards. But when we're going on socially-distanced walks outside, taking viral-worthy selfies, or just want to test out the best self-tanners for when you do finally get to show off all the bikinis you binge-purchased through your quarantine boredom, these are the best to ways to glow up, no matter your shade of skin, whether you have uber-sensitive eczema-ridden skin, or just want J-Lo glow, smooth legs.

Premature thinking? Maybe. But while we're in the midst of this quarantine time, we're chatting about the most terrifying, the funniest, and the weirdest thing that quarantine has forced us into recently.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.
