The face of our nation’s political future…
Oh Frankie Muniz, every time I think the world has forgotten all about you some new weird story pops up about you. After Malcolm in the Middle ended in 2006 Frankie has been pretty much missing from the acting world, but he’s still managed to step back into the public eye a few times thanks to Twitter and the tabloids. Last we heard from Frankie was when he supposedly attacked his girlfriend violently right after Valentines Day. Before that it was him getting very annoyed that (the infinitely more successful) Shia LaBeouf continues to bash him in interviews because of a bad experience when they were both child actors. It was then that I started to like Shia LaBeouf a bit, just because of how terrible I find Frankie Muniz to be. But now Frankie is threatening to fully re-enter the public eye in a new and terrifying way, tweeting: “I’m going to be a politician. I’m running for public office. I will be announcing soon.”
Like politics couldn’t get any sillier! Frankie has yet to announce any official details about what poor district or state is going to have to pup up with commercials of his smug face, but he already seems woefully overconfident by declaring he is going to be a politician. Slow your roll there Frankie, you have to win an election soon. You better hope another early 2000’s sitcom star doesn’t decide to run against you. What are the kids from The Bernie Mac Show up to?
Now in news about a teenager that holds more power and sway over the world than any politician, Justin Bieber was back in his home country of Canada to collect some awards at the 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards. Based on the amount of popular Canadian musical artists I assume Bieber and Celine Dion won every award, even though Neil Young should have won every single one. But on the red carpet Bieber tried desperately to be hip by wearing something you might see on the racks at Hot Topic: a retro t-shirt with an image of Kelly Kapowski (aka Tiffani Thiessen) from Saved By the Bell. I’m already not a fan of the whole “look at how quirky I totally remember a show we all watched as kids” nostalgia chic that seems to be ever-growing, but this one is even worse. Saved By the Bell went off the air before Justin Bieber was even born! Nice try with your attempt at some sort of hipster cred, Bieber, but that’s phony! If you want to get in on this style wear something that is actually from your childhood. Like a Vampire Diaries t-shirt. Ah the memories!
