    As someone who had never been to BroadwayCon before, I really had no idea what to expect. As a personal Broadway lover, I was super excited to be able to attend an event solely dedicated to anything and everything Broadway.

    The first time I heard this song, I knew it was going to be on the radio. The catchy chorus and witty lyrics were just itching to be played on every radio station. And 3 months later, it did just that. Now, I’m sure you can’t stop hearing it everywhere you go.

They always sad that I was a “nice girl”. … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/why-i-wont-be-a-nice-girl-anymore/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read
