Something on your mind? Relax, folks. Abs is here to help.
I'm really into pop music, but the kids at school make fun of me
because I like S Club. They're all into Linkin Park, Korn and other
rock bands. What should I say?
Pop music is an abbreviation of popular music... It just means that
lots of people like it. It doesn't mean that pop is cheesy - it's
just music that people are into and, at the end of the day, you're
an individual so do your own thing. Who cares what they think?
You're having a good time so don't let them change you. Trust me -
in a few years they'll realise how silly they were.
I've just had a massive mobile phone bill and have no idea how to
pay it. I haven't told my mum - what should I do?
Run for your life! I know what you're saying... Angry mums are
not nice at all. Seriously, though, why not leave the bill lying
around where she'll see it and then go and stay at your mate's house
for a week, or something? Or own up a nd offer to pay her back bit
by bit by saving up your pocket money every month. Then at least
she'll see you're making an effort and you're really sorry. And
switch to a pay-as-you-go phone - they're much less hassle.
I've got to dump my boyfriend - , what's the best way to go about
If he's cheated on you, burn his car (The Hits recommends you don't
do this or you'll end up in the 'slammer' -Ed). But if he hasn't,
always break up face to face. Don't text him because that's rude and
don't do it on the phone - that's always messy because you end up
calling each other backwards and forwards all night. Having a chat
to get everything out in the open is good and, if you can, leave it
on a friendly vibe. It's not always easy to stay friends, though.
I really fancy this lad but I can never get him alone - he's
absolutely insperable from his mates. How can l get him on his own?
Personally, I would just go up to him and say "can I talk to you for
two minutes?" That's it. Nice, easy and casual... You don't have to
make a bJigthing out of it. If you're too embarrassed to do that in
front of his group of friends, get hold of his mobile phone number
and just text or call him. Come on, Kerry what have you got to lose?
My mum wants to know where I'm going and what I'm doing every time I
go out and we always end up arguing -I can't stand it any more. What
should I do?
It got stupid with my mum and I like
that. You can't blame them because they care about you and what
you're doing. But she needs to realise that you're growing up, and
that kind of understanding only comes over time. Tell her you need a
little bit of independence but, at the same time, listen to what she
has to say.
My boyfriend flirts with other girls a lot and it's starting to get
down. What should I do?
Does he have a car? If he does, just use him for his car and get
your revenge... Simple as that. Get him to drop you off wherever you
want, take you places and pay for things. Also, when he's flirting,
you should flirt with other boys, too... It'll probably get right up
his nose and he should soon get the message. If he doesn't care,
well... Dump him.
I have a huge crush on Justin Timberlake. Sometimes
it makes me cry when I think I'll never even get
to meet him. How can I cope?
I have the same feelings, know what I'm saying... I can't wait until
I meet Justin either (laughs). I know from personal experience how
you can touch people's lives with your music
and it's nice you're having these feelings for him. It's fun being
into celebrities and most of us get obsessed with our idol at some
point in our lives. Just enjoy being a fan and remember-there's
nothing wrong with dreaming. Sometimes dreams do come true...
I'm really worried I'm a bad kisser -what's a good kissing
You should go out, get yourself a boy and practise on him. It
doesn't have to be anyone you know that well... Not a complete
stranger, though. Just have a little sample and see what you think.
I like girls who are all over you, but I also like girls who are
subtle and sweet. As long as you're not clanging teeth and you're
keeping your saliva level to a minimum, then it's all good. It's a
good idea to start off slowly and build up gradually into a more
frenzied snog. You'll learn.
