If you told me that 30 year old me would be chatting with Rebecca Black, I’d laugh. But years later, she’s dropping bop after bop and ‘Personal’ is no different.
Black says, ‘Personal' represents this reckoning with a consequence of heartbreak I hadn’t really ever understood - which was the guilt and heaviness that comes with being the one to put an end to a relationship when that's not what the other person wants.
I’ve learned you can’t really stop two people on roads heading in opposite directions, and it can feel so difficult to consciously make a decision that you know will hurt someone you love, while at the same time knowing it's the necessary choice for yourself at the end of the day.
"At 15 years old, I begged my mom to take me to Walmart to get Taylor Swift's debut deluxe album and I never turned back. This was my very first entry point to stan fandom. Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee I was exposed to a ton of music - from rapping 3 6 Mafia to bopping to Justin Timberlake's solo discography. Now, in LA have a day job working in nonprofit development, but by night, I'm a full-fledged fangirl. I'll listen to generally any genre, but I'm a sucker for a good pop song. If you ever need someone to scream sing Carly Rae Jepsen's E·MO·TION with, I'm your girl. No, I still have not gotten over the One Direction hiatus. Please continue to respect my privacy.
