The Gloss was just having an informal roundtable discussion about terrible nineties alternative rock (namely, can we tell Puddle of Mudd from Nickelback?) (UPDATE: No), and when Jennifer said she had no clue about this stuff to begin with, Lilit cringed and said, “I dated some musicians in the nineties.” We all agreed this was a bad idea, because dating musicians generally means a sacrifice of any kind of, oh, I don’t know, reliability? Seems like there’s a laundry list.
“But,” she added, “I’ve never violated my ‘no actors’ rule.”
We unanimously agreed that this was a sensible policy.
And thus this utterly no-frills poll was born.
