Once upon a time in a Hollywood not so far away, we lived in the golden age of pop princess tragedy and drama. The new generation of “it girls” includes models like Kendall, Hailey, EmRata, and the Hadid sisters with perfectly curated Instagram feeds, social media platforms with which they can tell their own stories to the public, and stricter paparazzi laws, which allow the modern day goddesses to better control the narratives around them. But my generation? We grew up with this:
All of our favorites, save Paris, have had very public meltdowns due to the constant scrutiny under the public eye, and no ability to tell their side of things, unless they were lucky enough to get interviews. It’s no surprise that Britney, Amanda Bynes, Lindsay, and the Olsen twins all ended up heavily medicated.
However tragic, though, trios like Paris, Britney, and Lindsay continue to give me life, which is why I’m ecstatic to announce Early 2000s Pop Stars: The Reunion. For whatever fucking reason, LiLo sent a tweet last night inviting Britney and Paris to her birthday party in Mykonos.
So many things. First, I can’t believe that Beyonce was just invited to the original girl squad. Second, living for the play on “Mean Girls,” by calling the ultimate mean girls #nicegirls (read: “Paris is a cunt. I never said that. Paris is my friend.”). And third, this live look at Nicole Richie right now.
In any case, this reunion is unlikely, as Britney is touring, Beyonce just had some babies, and Paris is still a cunt. But I’m still rooting for this reunion with all my heart..
