It took me a minute to register what I was hearing at first... it sounded familiar, but it wasn't until the chorus that I realized we were listening to Selena Gomez singing Round & Round! Now I realize that she's not just a Disney star anymore (even if I happen to know her from Wizards of Waverly Place) and that he music has gone mainstream enough that they play her songs on Z100 and she was a presenter at the MTV VMAs. So yeah, I get that. But at the same time, it bugged me out that they were playing a song that my 10-year-old daughter listens to at a bar where the music is usually geared towards a much, much older crowd.
Of course, the fact that I recognize Selena Gomez songs playing at bars, sometimes sets me up for stupid conversations with dumb guys:
Lilith: Oh my god. This is Selena Gomez.
Lilith: This song. The song they're playing is by Selena Gomez.
Jezebel: I don't know this one.
Lilith: Well, the only reason I know it is because they play it non-stop on the Disney channel...
Guy: You watch the Disney channel?
Jezebel: She watches the Disney channel a lot.
Lilith: Yes. But it's not like I watch it by myself. I have a good excuse.
Guy: Why? Who do you watch it with?
Lilith: Who do you think I watch it with?
Guy: Do you watch it with your nieces and nephews?
Lilith: No. I don't have any nieces and nephews.
Guy: So you do watch it alone!
Lilith: No. I don't.
Guy: So you watch it with her?
Jezebel: Nope, not with me.
Guy: Well, if you don't watch it with her and you don't have nieces or nephews then who do you watch it with?
Lilith: Really? You can't think of any other person I might watch Disney channel with?
Jezebel: You can't think of someone who might watch children's shows with her?
Guy: It's okay if you watch it alone...
Lilith: You're joking right? You're overlooking the most obvious answer.
Guy: I already said nieces or nephews.
Jezebel: Think about it.
Guy: Well, I know she doesn't have a kid, so it has to be nieces or nephews...
Lilith / Jezebel: [stare at him in disbelief]
