    I couldn't agree more! I love that show, wouldn't call it a guilty pleasure at all. It was brilliant until, as you said, season 5 then bleh...

    Hey I was just joking,eh? There are certainly much less talented acts out there than Justin. Though not a fan I don't run away screaming if I accidentally hear one of his songs.

    At least he was always into music and actually composes and sings strongly. There are a lot of so-called singers out there who couldn't write a song to save their lives and have barely passable singing voices. They are really just manufactured "stage acts" with totally forgettable voices that are so heavily overproduced I am sure you couldn't recognize them if they sang a capella.

    I'm pretty sure we don't want them to sing a capella or without help. :screams: Though a few of them sound better live, like Lady Gaga. You'd never know it from some of her songs, but live, she can SING.

    Britney Spears could genuinely sing when she was younger. She had a low, soulful, jazz-like voice. I wonder now if she still can sing but sounds the way she does because that's what sells or if she's one of those unfortunate people that lost their voice with maturity.

    LOL I'm in that camp. too. I also thing Dog's son, Leiland (from Dog the Bounty Hunter) is smokin' hot. What is wrong with me? :lol:

    Other guilty pleasures include:

    -FSU
    -The Bachelor
    -Toddlers & Tiaras
    -Little Miss Perfect
    -Nancy Grace...She is so over the top that I love it. I think I'm like her #1 fan. I'm so ashamed!

    Also, not really a guilty pleasure, but something I should probably be embarrassed to admit here is that I named my daughter after a skater.:scream:

    Fanfiction. Reading AND writing it. (Actually, there's some really well-written stuff out there! But on the whole, I think it has kind of a bad reputation . . . :shuffle: )

    Now there's a name I haven't heard in a while. My husband's cousin used to be engaged to her. I never met her but she's a bit of a flake apparently.

    Her comments are SO annoying, but I love the tips, and Roger makes the show better than it is.

    Since I've been on an extended recovery from aortic valve replacement, I have developed an inordinate fondness for the Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventures" (and its lead investigator, Zak Bagans :grope: , who is *so* not my usual type!).

    (Also count me in as a "Toddlers & Tiaras" and "Little Miss Perfect Junkie": do you not just love his song about "citrus-colored rainbows"? Hey, when all you can do is lie around and heal, ya gotta keep the brain semi-functional....)

    And I hate to admit but those documentaries on TLC with people who have physical defects (like the lady with the giant legs) or are 1000lbs, etc. It's horrible for me to say this, but I always bitch about being short and having such short legs, so when I watch those shows it reminds me I have nothing to complain about. I know that's horrible. Sorry. :(

    Oh, I forgot about this one. I always think I'm one of those cool people who doesn't get affected by celebrities, but last Friday I stood two hours in the fricking cold to catch a glimpse of Tom Cruise filming MI4 in Vancouver with my ever-ready camera in hand.....

    Most of it is wretched, but I do read it, especially when it's based on my favorite crime shows.

    I never read fan fiction if I really like the show and its characters. They take too many liberties and the really good ones end up becoming blurred with the "canon" of the shows. (Then again, I like Sci Fi)
