I am so not hip.....

I have came to the realization recently that I am so out of the loop on what is cool when it comes to pop culture. Maybe I am just getting old? Maybe it's because we don't watch TV? (We don't get local channels and don't subscribe to cable or satelite, so I am limited to Netflix.)

Here are some recent examples:

I was like 2 weeks late in hearing that Katie left Tom.

I had no clue until this morning that Darius Rucker is/was Hootie.

And I had to google what ombre meant in regards to fashion, hair, etc. recently. No joke.

That's how out of the loop I am. Sometime I wonder how I can possibly function so naively?

There are some things I just.don't.get! I was reading today, and according to Forbes magazine, Kristen Stewart was the highest paid Hollywood actress in 2011. She made over $43 million dollars last year! 2nd place was Cameron Diaz at $39 million. $20 something million for Sandra Bullock, etc.

Kristen Stewart

Really?!?! Kristen Stewart seems to have one known facial expression, but this photo I found almost proved me wrong. Her voice drives me nuts, and she is not extraordinarily gorgeous. She is essentially very average. To top it off, her real life personality (from interviews I've seen) seems lacking as well. So how, in one short year, did she make $43 million dollars? More than most of us will ever make in our life times! Makes me go.. "hmmm..."

Maybe I just don't know what is cool anymore. Maybe pop culture just really isn't my thang. Is thang still cool to say? ;)


  1. Girl, I'm right there with you. Although, as an Etsian, I definitely knew what ombre was!

  2. Haha... I like to pretend I'm on top of this stuff... but I'm not!
    And Kristen is a big 'ole cheater now so I say her time as the highest paid actress won't last much longer! ;)

  3. I'm out of the loop too. It took me forever to even know who Hootie was, let alone Darius Rucker... LOL.

    1. Also, I nominated you for The Liebster Blog award by the way - check out my post to see what you do next :)

    2. Thanks Sarah! That's so sweet of you! Going to check it out now.

  4. I don't get the Kristin Steward thing, either. I honestly think she's a terrible actress and very mediocre in everything else. I feel cheated every time I see am movie that she's in since it boggles my mind how she managed to land a part in the first place.
    Thankfully, since the disease of the Twilight Saga is over as far as movies go, hopefully her reign is over. =)

    I feel you with the no TV and stuff though. <3
