It's like on Cosmo's list of bedroom dont's.<blockquote>''[Clip of Adina Howard - It's All About You]''</blockquote>'''Todd (VO):''' She did release one other single, "It's All About You", which is kind of a serious switch from "Freak Like Me". "Freak Like Me" was about her, it wasn't about you at all.<blockquote>'''Adina:''' And it's all about you...</blockquote>'''Todd (VO):''' I mean, I'm not saying these are bad songs. I could see them easily becoming hits but not as big as "Freak Like Me" obviously. But there's a lot of music that gets made out there, it's hard to break through.

'''Todd: '''...kind of a novelty at the time.
