Rebecca Black Thia Megia and Everyone in Between?

We’re all fans of American Idol here at Rag Trade Disciples. So much, in fact that we jumped for joy when this season’s Idol lowered the age bar for auditions and allowed 15 year olds to compete. This season had tons of great youngsters on its roster that at one point included tons of 90s babies including 16-year olds Lauren Alaina, Thia Megia, Brett Loewenstern and tons others that didn’t even make it to the top 24 :: sigh::

So with all this 16-year old success, we are wondering are the Rebecca Black’s and Justin Bieber’s of the world the new dawn of pop music?

Chime in below.

TV Land’s, “She’s Got The Look” Showcases The Desirable Confidence and Morale in the over 40 crowd.

Much like the folkloric, idea of Children’s Fairyland, there’s a place where sitcoms perish. Like a writers Utopia or America’s, Florida– TV Land Network, has provided a stable refuge for these “has-been” sitcoms to savor in their retirement and hard work. I Love Lucy, Designing Women, Murphy Brown, Hogans Heroes, MASH, and Mad About You, only to of course name a few, this network has managed to house, decades and even centuries of programming, under one heterogeneous roof.


Forty-somethings, and even a sultry ferocious sixty-something, strutted down the long stark runway. TV Land’s original series, “She’s Got the Look”, hosted by Kim Alexis, aired yesterday June 4th,  showcasing talented women over the age of 35, conquering the contention that modeling careers, conclude at the ripe-young age of 25.

Theres a certain finesse, exerted by women over 35, a sense of confidence and aplomb–envied by the twenty-somethings. Radiance seeps through the pores of these dames, with a much envied  Je ne sais quoi  charisma about themselves. It’s a confidence that comes along with worldliness and assertiveness. 

So if, thirty is the new twenty, which in turn makes twenty is the new ten… then that makes me a pubescent twelve year old.

She’s Got the Look airs 10/9c on TVLand Network, check local listings for the network in your area.
