Pity poor Nicole Scherzinger. (For lots of reasons, really.) Like so many of us, she’s apparently going to spend Valentine’s Day all alone. Just because you’re going solo on V-Day, however, doesn’t mean that you can’t have — *ahem*a good time.

To celebrate the self-lover in us all, we whipped up a lock-the-bathroom-door playlist of what-are-you-doing-in-there jams by everyone from Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé to Lady Gaga to Britney Spears to Prince. After all, in the words of Weird Al, who among us hasn’t been “stranded all alone in the gas station of love” and forced to use the self-service pumps?

Loving yourself is perfectly natural, after all. So press play on our “Everybody Does It” Valentine’s Day playlist. (You won’t go blind—we promise!)
