It’s time for another one of my rants. This one has been brought on by starting at my new school, and I know I’ve probably talked about it before, but I needed to do it again.
We all know I love all things Disney, but even if I didn’t, I really don’t see why there’s such a problem with teenagers liking it. How is enjoying a daily dose of Hannah Montana and blasting the Jonas Brothers any different to watching Gossip Girl and pumping Ke$ha? Why am I ridiculed for admitting Wizards of Waverly Place is one of my favourite shows and that I admire Demi Lovato? Why is it expected that I should listen to songs with too many swear words to count that are about sex rather than happy feeling, upbeat songs about true love and friendship? Songs with feeling and messages. Songs that leave me smiling and happy about who I am.
When did the teenagers of today decide that you’re not cool unless you like rap and hip hop, and then go ahead and follow the messages put through in the songs by sleeping around and partying hard.
Guess what? I’m not even sixteen. I’ve only just started year ten.
Why can’t I enjoy my childhood why I have it? Why should you judge me because the closest I have to a rap song on my iPod is ‘Thug Story’ and I spend my Friday nights watching chick-flicks and dcoms? I’m sorry that I’m almost sixteen and still haven’t kissed a boy. I’m sorry that according to you, I should have been having sex for at least a year. I’m sorry I don’t drink. I’m sorry I have morals.
Actually, I’m not sorry, why should I be? In the words of the Jonas Brothers, “I am what I am, I can’t help myself, and if you don’t like it get with somebody else, I’ll never change my ways, it’s not a phase, this is who I am and this is how I’m gonna stay”, and taking Selena’s advice “I won’t apologise for who I am”.
I honestly just don’t get it. What is the problem with Disney? I don’t hate on you for your interests, so can we have some respect and no hate on me for mine?
