I believe in really loving the things you love. Going all the way for something you’re a fan of, you know? I also love things that make me seethe with rage because it means it’s gotten a response for me. But I have zero patience for the mess that is pre-teen, tween, teen, whatever the hell they’re called messiness when it comes to their rabid delusions. No, dear, you’re not married to that pop star and he hasn’t seen your latest declaration of love on his Instagram. Go outside! Play with a stick! Look at the birds!
Rebel Wilson said on Friday’s episode of Ellen (via E!) that after she was on the show in November with One Direction, she felt the full wrath of their toddler fans. On the show, she did a little bit where she super-fanned out, wearing a sweatshirt with them all over it and getting a little physical with Harry Styles. Well, that didn’t go down well with the 7-12 demographic.
“Basically, I got accused of sexually assaulting Harry Styles. These little girls, I think they’re about 12, very, very unhappy with that. Basically we’re just like two professional entertainers having a good time and he really enjoyed it, like…and I told him that on Twitter and then they just sent me more death threats. They get very, um, like they love them and they think they’re going to be with them and I’m like, ‘Well, but you guys never, like, are with them.'”
The child armies behind today’s Tiger Beat hos is the stuff of nightmares. Mindless little creatures who live off of Instagram, Go-Gurt and Silly Bandz. My question in all of this is where are the parents? WHERE ARE THE PARENTS?! If I found out my little one was sending death threats to grown ass people on TV and in movies because they joked around with someone I’d take their phone away quicker than they could say “I‘M GONNA KILL MYSELF AND RUN AWAY!” Childhood is for playground pettiness, but let’s keep it in the playground, ok?
