Julie teen covered all of the teen fashion from the Teen Choice Awards yesterday (my best-dressed pick? T. Swift), but when I took a look through the photos from the event, I saw one thing in common with almost every female attendee: black eyeliner, and lots of it. I think even Justin Bieber had some on. I instantly recalled my own formative teenage years, during which I managed to convince myself that I was unpresentable without lashings of the stuff (in pencil form, tip heated by a lighter, natch) in and around my already-small eyes. Why did I do this, and perhaps more importantly: why does every girl between the ages of thirteen and eighteen do this at some point? Tell me: is it just me — and all these teens — or were you, too, a teenage victim of this trend?
Guys, there are so many teens. So many teens that attended this year’s Teen Choice Awards. I’m not really sure what the point of the Teen Choice Awards is, other than to confer praise and accolades from the teen public onto teens they really like and admire. Either way, the teens in attendance at the Teen Choice Awards made a vast array of sartorial teen choices — some good, and some woefully bad. Let’s take a look at them after the jump, shall we?
We knew Miley Cyrus’ brief pole dance at the Teen Choice Awards was going to spark a debate and, lo and behold, it has. Parent advocacy groups are up in arms, and blogs are crowing: “Miley Cyrus Does Her Part For the Pornification Of America.” In Newsday, child psychologist Wendi Fischer opined, “She’s sending the message that this is ‘OK’ to do, and I don’t think it is OK to do.” [Newsday] Keep reading »
Ladies and gentlemen, we gather here today to remember our dear friend pole dancing.
Beloved by frat boys, horny old men, and starlets in desperate need of attention, pole dancing may have enjoyed decades more of life had not Miley Cyrus pole-danced at the Teen Choice Awards last night. Keep reading »
Sorry we ruined this tender moment between Ashley Tisdale and her music director bf Scott Speer with a fart joke —not! But they were pretty puke-tastic, er, cute at the Teen Choice Awards. From the looks of this photo, Ashley’s working on a cover of Debbie Gibson’s “Lost in Your Eyes.” [Hollywood, 8/9/09] Keep reading »
Kristen Stewart is looking so dang hardcore lately. She’s either sartorially-inspired by her role in “The Runaways” as Joan Jett or simply a method actress. Either way, we wonder how the hell she could sit through the Teen Choice Awards in this Rock & Republic dress without sustaining any serious injuries. [Los Angeles, 8/10/09] Keep reading »
Stop the presses! “Twilight” won 11 awards at the Teen Choice Awards last night, and Robert Pattinson was voted “Choice Male Hottie.” Personally, I’m so tired of hearing about R-Patz and this vampy flick that I’m about to drive a stake through my heart. But, lucky for you, we’ve got the highlights of what else happened at this year’s teenybopper fest. After the jump, our fave “Twilight”-less Teen Choice moments. Keep reading »
Kathy Griffin, 48, found a new partner in
crime prime time, Levi Johnston, 19. Bristol Palin’s baby-daddy, who has been doing the talk-show circuit, escorted the D-lister to the Teen Choice Awards last night. Despite the terrified baby-animal-caught-in-a-cougar-trap look on his face, Levi talked some serious game. “She’s beautiful and funny. She’s the star of the night.” He even kissed her on the cheek! We shudder. [MSNBC] Keep reading »
“No thanks. She sang on my record. So I think she’s kind of getting back at me, because she was doing harmonies and backgrounds.” — Miley Cyrus on Katy Perry’s desire to smooch her. Aww, but you might like it! Keep reading »
