Friday Playlist: Hanging Out With Torrance Shipman

Bring it on.

Cheerleaders are the shit, period, which is why you need to channel all of head cheerleader Torrance Shipman’s victory spirit. Cheerleading is her life, literally, and she’ll do anything to win. If you’re gonna be the best, you need to be THE BEST, so bring it ON. Like, you need to be high-kicking and twirling and somersaulting until your back breaks. OK, maybe don’t break your back, ’cause they’re really going to need you for practice, but be prepared to get serious. So get your spirit fingers ready—I SAID READY!!! NOW!!!—and follow Torrance Shipman or perish, sweater monkeys. Here are 10 songs to get into the Bring It On zone.

    I’m pretty sure that Roar by Katy Perry is Rookie’s favourite song at the moment, judging by its constant presence on the Friday Playlist. I LOVE THESE PLAYLISTS :D

    This is oddly coincidental and awesome. My best lady pal from work and I make a movie date once a week, and we totally plan on watching Bring It On this Tuesday. This definitely puts me in the spirit. Heh. Spirit.
