You know you are old...


 ...when your new People magazine arrives in the mail and you have never even heard of the vaguely effeminate, sexually non-threatening young super-star on the cover.

Justin Bieber, anyone?

  1. hah! you crack me up. I'm old as the hills but I know who he is (a teen pop singer)--but I only because I've got a nine-year-old daughter who, while pretending to be above it all, is in fact totally up on the tween superstars.

  3. UGH! Tracey...I am AFRAID to say that I KNOW his music! His school girl falsetto croon is beloved by my ten year old daughter...and really? The eight year old too. I WISH I did NOT know his music! Now, do I THINK he should grace the cover of PEOPLE mag? Ahhhh....no.

  4. Leah and Jill, I think you have figured it out for me. I am too old, and my daughter is too young. I do not know anyone between the ages of 9 and 11.

  5. I know, right!? Who is this guy and what is he doing invading my grocery line reading agenda of the old faves, brad, angelina and jen? He's a BABY!

  6. This baby is a Canadian fifteen year old flavour of the month, who my kids love to hate. It's hard to believe he's even fifteen!
    In my day it was all David Cassidy and Leif Gerritt.

    Blake Carrington? So that's who that is!

  7. I hadn't heard of him until I heard that he's going to duet with Robert Pattinson on the soundtrack of Eclipse. No contest for me!

  8. My tweens and young teen try their best to keep me informed.

    I still get Demi Lavato and Selina Gomez mixed up, even though my kids have corrected me 100 times and pointed how they don't look like the same person. (The only reason I know their names is because my 14 year old just stepped into the room and I asked her.)

    Oh, just wait until your kids are a few years older. I don't know about boys, but when little Catherine is about 7, she'll be able to teach you quite a lot. You'll be fighting over the People magazines. :)
