I was worried about being tormented about my parents for it, so I never told them at first. I just downloaded the songs from the internet and listened to them on my iPod, they found it weird that I was never blasting my music for the whole world to hear anymore and why I always had my earphones in.

But I ordered two J-Cds and my dad said "Oh, be careful, they might end up singing like *awful imitation of Chinese*...or is it like that anyway?"
So I just replied that, "That sounds like nonsense Chinese." So I think he kind of got the point that it was actually foreign(Plus it said Japanese in the item description) and he hasn't really said anything about it since, so I suppose that he's okay with that. Plus, he openly admitted to liking traditional-type Japanese music, but then again, he has really eccentic taste in music(I suppose that's where I got it from.)

But my mother mocks me for listening to rock music even though it's sung completely in English. She thinks that Muse are way too heavy. So I'm reluctant to tell her. Plus, they're a boy-band, and I've always said that I hated boybands(But I couldn't help myself.), so Id probably get a lot of snide comments for that.

And my friends...I really don't want to tell them. Though I shouldn't be bothered, because they alwyas play High School Musical and Miley Cyrus songs in front of me, which I really hate and I've told them plenty of times just that. If someone I knew admitted thay liked J-music, then I would too. I just admitted to my first person(Outside of family.) that I liked anime not so long ago, and it wasn't too bad.

Haha no
not much sure they get mad when i sing along or have the volume up.
they either tell me to shut-up or put on earphones.
but they
mostly make fun of me & say why the hell
do you like that stuff why arent you normal?
& then they tell me i should have been born asian.
they are just jealous & well everyone in my family makes fun of me
sure i know a few korean & japanese songs but i shouldn't be made fun of for
liking it right??
