Top Guilty Pleasures of 2014

Guilty Pleasures are defined as “something, such as a movie, television program, or piece of music, that one enjoys despite feeling that it is not generally held in high regard.” admitting to liking certain things. That being said, here are my current top music, television, film, and text that were my guilty pleasures of 2014.


All About That Bass – Meghan Trainor:  This song is on the top of the pop charts because it is too catchy not to sing along to. It has an upbeat tempo that makes you want to get up and dance. Even though it has silly lyrics, making many people mistake it as dumb and pointless, it does send a good message: to not be insecure about your body.


 TV Show

Glee:  This show sends out a positive message of acceptance and deals with problems like homophobia, bullying, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, and other topics. The cast covers songs by popular artists like Aretha Franklin, Britney Spears, and Amy Winehouse. The singing, musical theater, drama, and comedy of Glee is always over the top, but it is going to make you happy.


Step Up All In: These movies have always been a guilty pleasure for me. Step Up All In is the most recent Step Up movie, which came out this year. This movie wasn’t as great as the first one, but it is still a really good movie. If you have free time, this movie would be a great movie to watch.I enjoy watching these movies, because they always have a storyline that intrigues you, just like the ‘Bring It On’ films. Many people say that they should have stopped making these movies after the first one, but you can’t help but watch one after the other, a top guilty pleasure movie.


The Fault In Our Stars: This is a love story, but I think that John Greene did a great job at putting a twist on it. Many people would say that they don’t like it, because they don’t like love stories, or that it is too sappy, but it is one of my favorite books, and i’m not alone. It has a heartbreaking ending. It will definitely make you cry. It is overly sentimental, but a great love story.
