(DISCLAIMER: I'm sure you failiar folks get the memo, and probably are angry that I'm posting this subject again. But I am serious when I post this, because it's a problem that I have been having for a long time now. So if you want to help, I would appreciated it. If not, Go one with your day)

I, an American adult male, seem to have this strong unwanted interest with Japanese idol girl group group, Momoiro Clover Z (MCZ). They are my biggest guilty pleasure ever to the point where they are honestly my top artists/group right now..GAHH, IT HURTS TO SAY THAT!!

It's EXTREME:Y difficult to live your life following this type of act in America or anywhere on the Western side (because that's the situation I am in right now). The fact that this type of girly/cutesy entertainment isn't around in America or anywhere on the Western side of the Globe (unlike Japan)makes this situation even MORE dangerous for me. As well as the fact that the fan bases of girl groups in the West (Spice Girls/Fifth Harmony) are made up of mostly teenage females (unlike in Japan). To prove it, hear and listen to the crowd differences between a Fifth Harmony show and an MCZ show:

[MCZ] vs. [Fifth Harmony]

So yeah, for some uncontrollable reason, I seem to have a strong interest to MCZ (to the point where I can't seem to go without a day of listening to their music/watching their funny bits/following their posts/buying DVDs/etc), despite the fact that 1) I DO NOT WANT to have this interest and feel ashamed that I (an America adult male) has this strong of an interest for such a group and 2) It's an interest that can EASILY turn off folks here in the West and can make you a VERY EASY target to be assaulted both verbally and physically. Even if I try to ignore the folks who do such things to me or ask/tell them to "Stop!" (either kindly or confidently), they attack me because they don't to be ignored or told to be stop.

And in case you ask "how do they know you have such interests?" - I never even have tried to tell or show folks about it (why would I if I know it can lead to even MORE assault)? They find out because they see me or overhear me watching/listening to them. Plus, when you live with folks for such a long time (like family or friends), there's not many things you can do to avoid it from them when you are with them for a such a long time. They are bound to know that you have a particular interest in something when you both live with them AND follow that interest for a while.

That's one of the many reasons why there are my biggest guilty pleasure, as well as these 5 reasons:

- 1) It's something you felt uneasy/negative about at first, but then ended up liking for some reason.

- 2) It's something that would lead to physical (as well as verbal/mental) assaults no matther how much you try to defend/ignore

- 3) It's an interest that you know is flawed/has its faults, yet you like it because you can't help such a feeling. For example, a song with full racial/sexist lyrics. You may be aware that the song is heavily flawed for its sexual/racial lyrics, and end up thinking “Damn, they are right about this criticism", but you can't stop listening to it! (I could also use Nicki Minaj's Anaconda video as an example for males, because such a "seemingly" objeciifying video may still get males sexually aroused to the point of wanting more of it.

- 4) I'm liking something that is “out of character/different in personality and approach" compare to yourself. Like this metal guy who admits to liking some pop acts!

- 5) You are the minority of a fan base that is filled with your opposite gender (like a male liking Justin Bieber/1D/Taylor Swift/boy bands/etc.)

Now that I confess to you folks about this, I'm asking advice to know what should I do about my UNWANTED fandom with this group? Should I put the extra effort to not follow this group at all? Should I continue to follow them despite me n

I have explained why.

Just because you guys don’t get assaulted doesn’t mean someone isn’t as well.
I think you've answered your own question, MM

//1) I DO NOT WANT to have this interest and feel ashamed that I (an America adult male) has this strong of an interest for such a group//
I really don't know how to put this without it sounding a bit rude - we are all now rather bored with your repetitive posting of the same question and your constant refusal to take on board any advice.
Why is it that these Korean / Japanese girl bands all look like their school girls.
You can't have an 'unwanted obsession' - it's simply not possible.

If you like this group - even to the point of obsession, then that's fine, I fail to see a problem.

All this nonsense about being 'assaulted' for your musical taste is just that - nonsense, and you know it.

No-one knows what music you like unless you tell them, so if you are worried about not seeming 'cool' to your friends, when they ask, say you love Metallica, and change the subject.

Better still, enjoy whatever music you like, and stop squashing the joy out of it with pointless blathering to strangers about nonsense that does not exist outside your fevered imagination.
Stop beating about the bush Andy lol :) x
It's been quiet since Saturday, why wake him up now?

Just give it a rest for goodness sake, you are becoming very tedious, I really doubt anyone here in the UK is interested anyway.

A fair point, I was a bit wishy-washy wasn't I!!!

I'm awake, (just has been out for a while).

But andy-hughes, there IS a thing called an unwanted obsession. It's when you get into something that isn't good for you physically and/or mentally, but you can't seem to stop when you have every valid reason to do so. (I compared it to a drug addiction for example: You shouldn't take them because it does so much physical harm to you, yet you can't escape that addicting feeling that comes with it).

And me being a Western adult male who lives with folks around his age in School/College ((who are not known for having airhead/idiotic tendencies, didn’t grew up with any speech/mental disabilities or obstacles, had the luxuries to live a normal adult life like a license, car, job, money, house (the first two I just got recently), and were able to sexually attract a lot folks because of it, were incredibly popular because of their skills in any popular major (sports for example), listen to the music that happens is the cool thing for everyone else and avoid the music that would get them bullied, and are physically and mentally strong and capable of defending themselves for any assault))...There is a side of me that thinks I should stop before more harm is done, but I can't seem to do so, making them my biggest guilty pleasure?

So that's why I ask, what should I do?
Have you ever visited a psychiatrist- if not a trip may be worthwhile as all our responses over dozens of post have not changed anything
Put your laptop/computer in the bin and walk away.
weigh up the pleasure you get from your guilty pleasure v the pain/hassle you get from people about it- or find new friends.
MM305 - // So that's why I ask, what should I do? //

You'll understand if I don't bother responding any more.

If you think liking a pop band equates to a drug addiction then you have some seriously strange ideas.

Like them if you do, don't if you don't.

If you are embarrassed or ashamed, tell no-one.

OK - that's it, I have nothing else to say on this subject.

Good luck.
I occasionally listen to Backstreet Boys and Aqua, I think Donald Sutherland is Daddy as F, Takeshi's Castle is my favourite TV show and I stuff animals for a hobby, and you think you have issues? We're all weird, you're no exception, that's all. Get over it lovely and enjoy your life.
Ive got a very eclectic taste in music, everything from classical to punk, but ''cutesy, young, Japenese girls''???

Am I on the dark web here or something?...
kvalidir - // We're all weird, you're no exception, that's all.//

Absolutely - I bow to no-one in saying that Whigfield's Saturday Night is one of the greatest pop songs ever recorded, and if I can find a Whigfield tee-shirt on the Net, I will be wearing it at Download next year, and I don't feel weird in the slightest!!
That is weird Andy but more power to your elbow :) xxx
