Recently I had this song in my head that I liked, and when I looked it up, I realized that it was by 17-year-old blossoming teen idol Shawn Mendes. I was a little disturbed because:
--I can't believe I like a song by a teen idol
--I can't believe I find him hot
I mentioned this to my husband, who thought it was slightly amusing.
Me: "He's so young I'd go to jail if I had sex with him."
Him: "True. But so what?"
Me: "Our daughter should be the one who thinks he's hot. She's closer in age to him than I am."
Him: "A fetus is closer in age to him than you are."
Me: "Oh God. You're right. But when I actually was a teenager, there weren't any teen idols. Like, in the 90s."
Him: "Yes, there were. There was NKOTB."
Me: "No, that was really early 90s. And anyway, can you even name a NKOTB?"
Him: "No, but I'm not a girl. What about Justin Timberlake?"
Me: "No, that was very late 90s. I'm talking mid-90s. Who was the Justin Bieber of the mid-90s?"
Him: "I don't know. I'm not a girl."
Me: "I'm trying to think of who the teen idol singer was in the mid-90s and I can't think of anyone. I really can't."
Him: "And I don't care."
Seriously, who was the Justin Bieber of the 90s? Also, why did girls like Justin Bieber? He isn't even hot. Shawn Mendes is much hotter. Damn!
