Pondering pseudonyms and alter egos

Would it surprise you to read I have never listened to a Beyoncé song? I mean, on purpose. Her music is played here and there and everywhere, so she’s kind of hard to miss. 😉

Typically I’m a classic rock kinda gal, with some 80s and 90s soft rock or even a bit of pop thrown in.
