True Life: I'm obsessed with a Bieber-approved kiddie pop track
Why I can't stop listening to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe"

Screw you, Internet. Thanks to a couple of posts on blogs that I refuse to own up to following, my afternoon has been dedicated to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe."
If my Spotify could talk it would say something like "Emily Van Zandt listened to 'Call Me Maybe' 18.5 times today, kind of in a row." Thankfully there's that whole "private session" function, which has never been more necessary.
Apparently Jepsen was a contestant on Canadian Idol? And Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and some girl from a few Disney movies did a lip-synch YouTube video to this song, so it's kind of blowing up on the Tween part of the Internet?
Ugh, I don't know. All I know is that I have co-dependency issues when it comes to my music. When it's sad, I'm sad. When it's angry, I'm angry.
And when it's ridiculously over-produced, up-tempo bubblegum pop with terrible lyrics on a beautiful day in Chicago when I'm wearing pink pants, I just kind of want to start skipping around handing my number out to random bros, you know?
"Hey I just met you/and this is crazy/But here's my number/So call me maybe."
