I just had an epiphany and I'm not sure where to post it so I figured this is the best place.
I'm 16 now, which means in 2008, I was 10. I didn't become a fan of Katy until around Thanksgiving of this past year, so it's been about 5 months now. I didn't really listen to her music at all until the summer of California Gurls, when that was her only song on my iPod. I always considered her the best of any pop artist, but tbh, I didn't listen to pop at all (I'm a Pink Floyd guy). But I considered it necessary to "keep up with the times" so I tended to get whatever was #1 on Billboard at a given time.
So I was sitting down today, and a random flashback popped into my head. I remember sitting in the backseat of my mom's car and we were listening to Y100 (pop/hits) and I Kissed A Girl came on. I, being 10 years old, was astonished at the idea of writing a song about that. But it didn't matter really, it was a catchy song. Then the DJ came on after the song and started talking. He said something along the lines of, "...her religious parents had this to say: 'we don't necessarily agree with everything she does, but we love her and support her'." For whatever reason, it just occurred to me today that that was about Katy. Being a Katycat now, I can't believe that memory was 5 years before I became a fan, and just when she was hitting the spotlight. Anyway, I'll stop rambling now.
I don't know how to end the post properly so here's a random emoticon
me becoming a katy cat was somewhat similar..i had always been a fan of hers,and loved her songs..but i didnt become a katycat until this past summer lol and after i did,i also got a lot of random flashbacks with katy..it was the weirdest thing cuz those memories werent really anything special at the time..i remember listened to the OOTB albums in my friends car when it came out,and we were on a long drive so we listened to the majority of the album!that rarely happens for me,usually just listen to a random mix of artists and songs on an ipod lol and then later that year my friend brought me to jingle ball where katy performed!and i forgot about all of that until i became a katy cat!(along with a bunch of other memories associated with katy lol)its like she has always been there,but just waiting for the right time to really come into our lives
so…youre not alone
