Ah, the art of karaoke — getting up in front of a room full of strangers, belting out your favorite Beyoncé song while drunkenly stumbling your way through the “Single Ladies” dance routine, and hoping to GAWD that you don’t make an utter fool of yourself on stage. But I mean, that’s the point, right?
You will most likely be drunk when you take the stage (because duh) and you will probably f*ck up the words. OR if you’re like me — you’ve known every single word to “Gangster’s Paradise” since the 7th grade and will rap the sh*t out of it while making eyes with the hottie across the room. #bless
There’s something wonderful and shameless about karaoke that brings people together. Everyone can pretend for at least 3 to 5 minutes that they’re famous and important while channeling their inner Whitney or 90s Mariah. It’s a time to let loose and forget about all of the bullsh*t stress of jobs, relationships, and drama. Even if you flounder on stage, no one will remember because they’re probably all too drunk. So go on with your bad self and sing that Billy Idol song (topless while humping a chair) with pride!
