Pop Music Valentines: Say ILY with a little help from your faves.
As any fan of pop music knows, love means never having to say you’re sorry… for being obsessed with super-beautiful people who create flawless compositions out of radio-friendly manna. Since it’s Valentine’s Day, though, some of you might have to funnel all that passion into your actual, flesh-and-blood significant other.
#GROAN, WE KNOW, BUT JUST HEAR US OUT. We’re not saying that you have to choose between your IRL love and Miley Cyrus, Beyoncé, Lorde, Bruno Mars, Kanye West, Katy Perry, or whoever your celebrity fave might be. In the wise words of that girl from those Old El Paso Hard & Soft Taco commercials: “Por qué no las dos?”
With these custom Valentines — each bearing a different top-40 lyric or pop music-inspired message — you’ll be able to say I love you without praising another idol.
Wanna tell your boyf that you want him more than almond milk-based ice cream substitute with cronut chunks in it? (#NotAThing) Take a page outta “Drunk In Love,” and whisper: “Why can’t I keep my fingers off it, baby? I want you.” Is your GF just that special? Tell her she’s your “Treasure“… and then grab a bite of her dessert while she’s giving you a thank-you nuzzle.
Oh, and if you’re single tonight? Ummm, keep ’em all for yourself, rent “Double Jeopardy,” “Grey Gardens,” and “Death Becomes Her” on iTunes, and revel in the fact that you’re having a better night than literally 99 percent of anyone coupled up tonight.
