Secret confession

Captain's Log, Stardate 01.22.2008

I am a teeny bopper at heart.

I confess it. I’m coming clean.

I love N’Sync and the Backstreet Boys. They were cute. And they sang well. And their songs just melt my heart. I have to admit I partially liked the Chinese Back Dormitory Boys because they were singing one of my favorite songs, “As Long As You Love Me” and “I Want It That Way.” (Well, and plus they were darn funny.)

I love the movies, too! Captain Caffeine is annoyed because I TiVo’d The Princess Diaries one AND two. I just saw The Lizzie McGuire Movie and loved the whole “fall in love with a rock star and perform on stage” fantasy.

And now that I’m doing research for a young adult novel series I’m working on, I get to indulge all my secret vices.

What about you? Any favorite bands/songs/movies you secretly love? The songs you’ve hidden in a special folder on your iPod so your kids/friends/spouse can’t find them? The movies you watch late at night after everyone’s gone to bed so you can indulge without an audience?


  1. I enjoyed the Lizzie McGuire movie too.
    on the bus up we had another of Hillary Duff's movies where she goes to a music place in summer it was fun.
    I have to say i often watch the kids shows like Lizzie McGuire, etc.
    not sure about music. but I have been known to hire or watch the teen movies

    You crack me up! I just posted a similar confession (disguised as a review for a tween/teen book on my blog yesterday!)
    Because I live with two girls~ ages 14 and 7~ I find myself drawn into that world. So, at least, I have an excuse! LOL
    We LOVE the movies you mentioned. And, I could give you a list of several more you may want to TiVo.

  3. Sometimes when the music on KLOVE is too boring, I tune the radio to AirOne. I like Brandon Heath's music, Relient K, and others people in my age bracket (45) might not appreciate.

    And yes, I like both Princess Diaries movies, plus What a Girl Wants, and Enchanted.

  4. how funny!!! just yesterday I was on youtube and watching BSB, Nsync and Spice Girls!!!

  5. I picked up a 3-disc set yesterday, The MONKEES Greatest Hits. Does that count? I got addicted to the show the summer before my senior year of high school when it was on Nikelodeon every day.

  6. I love all those crazy teeny-bopper movies. I just sit and watch them over and over again!

  7. I loved the Lizzie McGuire movies and the show. I'm also a big Miley Cyrus fan. I watch her show all the time with the kiddos and I have been known to sing along to her songs.

  8. I can't say I have any secret vices. My husband knows better than to make fun of me about anything. ;) I am intrigued to hear about a young adult series. That sounds exciting.

  9. Menudo. Remember Ricky Martin before he was Ricky Martin? :)

  10. I love 13 Going On 30 (which may have a different name in the States). Jennifer Garner stars in it about a 13 year old girl who wakes up to find herself 30.

    I must have seen it at least 8 times and jsut writing this makes me want to see it again!

  11. I like Nsync and Spice Girls too! I also watch all the teeny bopper movies including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen movies.(embarassing) God bless us all! :)
