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.
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? ;)
