I Can Think For Myself

I like the Jonas Brothers. Sue me. But I didn't like them after Hannah Montana "Me and Mr. Jonas and Mr. Jonas and Mr.Jonas"; I liked them when "Mandy" and "Poor Unfortunate Souls" were popular. I liked them back in 2006 and I thought they were the hottest things around; Little did I know, no one had ever heard of them. It wasn't until about a year ago I realized they only became popular after their guest spot on Hannah Montana (which looking back on it, was absolutely horrible). But, oh, well, I liked them and still do because I can think for myself.

I don't like Miley Cyrus. Sue me. I liked her back when Hannah Montana was new, and I even liked her after the whole Vanity Fair scandal, because I really thought she had learned from it. But I know better now. I don't like her because she pole dances and lap dances and poses half-nude (no, I don't mean in Vanity Fair, I mean for her own personal pics that she posts online; don't believe me? Google her); but the main reason I don't like her is because, while doing all this trash, she still claims to be a Christian and will thank God and Jesus for what she's doing; if she believes God and Jesus are proud of her, she really needs to start reading her Bible. I don't like her, because I can think for myself.

I like Demi Lovato. Sue me. I like her because she's a singer that (for once) has a real voice; she sings about more than just falling in love and breaking up, she sings about fighting for love. I also think she is a good actress; she can play heartbroken and perky and guilty quite well. She seems to be an honest person and has worked through major issues (like being bullied into being homeschooled and having her father leave when she was quite young). I like Demi Lovato because I can think for myself.

I don't like Taylor Swift. Sue me. Her career is wasted on guys and, while she says she doesn't always have to have a boyfriend, her music tells me otherwise. And it's not that it's just about guys, it's the fact that it's always "love me or I'll hate you" type of music, with little in-between. She's always the victim in relationships and when it's a popular break-up, she spends over a year ranting on about how horrible her bf was. I think it's pathetic. I don't like her, because I can think for myself.

When it comes to celebrities, I like who I like and don't like who I don't like because I have my own mind and can think for myself; I don't like the Jonas Brothers because they're popular, I like them because they have good music, they haven't been in the tabloids for doing something wrong and they seem like naturally good guys, who don't put on a front. I don't not like Miley Cyrus because the majority hates her, I don't like her because she makes bad decisions and refuses to learn from them.

I have my own mind and I think for myself.

Well, with the Jonas Brothers...you can't really say that they only got their fame because of Hannah Montana..but whatever. And I love Taylor Swift, but other than that, this article was great...And of course those are just my opinions, so they don't effect anyone else's...I really don't like Miley Cyrus for the same reasons and I love Demi Lovato...So, yeah. Great article and I really like the idea of the "Sue me."

Haha, thanks! And I just meant that their second album came out like a day after their HM episode and many people bought it because of that. That's all. Anyways, thanks!! :)

I was saying that because I liked them long before the Hannah Montana episode and, in my opinion, they would've gained just as much popularity if they hadn't been associated with Miley, if not more. I had bought their other album before that and I bought the second album before that two. It actually came out ten days before and a lot of people bought it before that. Anyway, now I sound really mean, but I just thought I'd let you know why I commented what I did.

Yeah, that's fine. Just from I heard alot of people bought their album because of HM. I wouldn't know, cause like you, I liked them long before HM. Sales for the album seemed to spike after the episode, but I'm not saying that people did like them before or even in spite of HM. Sorry, if that's what it sounded like.

I like the JoBros  too, but I mainly commented to  tell you, I like the format of our essay. "Sue me."- it's original!

You write well. My peices are hardly ever this well rounded. Good job. And it's cool to think for yourself, but I wonder if people really notice or just make their own assumptions....

i totally agree! i never liked the Jonas Brothers, their music didn't appeal to me. I loved miley, until certain things happened *cough* nudepics *cough* i mean.. she's a hypocrite. and i love justin bieber, not because he's adorable, but because i love his voice and the way he talks to his fans and the way he started out. though im starting to hate the way he's letting fame get to his head a bit. i hope he changes and grows as an artist.

Some people just live to follow the crowd or to... (more »)
