What is a Guilty Pleasure? We discuss the various interpretations, whether they still exist, and some of our 90s Guilty Pleasures

In popular culture, whether it's music, films, books, or television, the idea of a Guilty Pleasure has existed as long as people have formed opinions on entertainment. High versus low art, serious versus inconsequential, intimate versus manufactured - everyone has their own criteria. We discuss the power of shame, such as when a once-popular genre falls out of favor, or when the personal behavior of an artist can impact an audience, the phrase can take on an even more serious interpretation.
