|Big Time Rush|
It is not easy to keep up with what is trending in pop culture. It never was, but with the Internet, everything moves much faster, and trends change even more quickly. Advertising Age recently released The Ad Age Pop Thermometer, an article of what’s trending, trailing and tired in pop culture right now.
While you will have to go to the article to read about all of the pop culture trends, here are a few that might interest parents of teens:
- Magnetic Nail Polish is trending, say goodbye to Rubber nail polish.
- Sperry’s boat shoes are in, Keds are fading and Converse Chucks are so yesterday.
- If you haven’t heard of Big Time Rush yet, you will, they are the trending Boy Band right now (picture above).
- Razorbombing has become the new college prank. It involves taking a picture of something with a razor in the foreground to create a visual pun.
To learn what else is trending or not in pop culture, go to Advertising Age and read The Ad Age Pop Thermometer. One of my favorite places to keep up with pop culture on a regular basis is Entertainment Weekly, both in print and online. It isn’t easy, but you don’t want to be so uncool that you still think that the Jonas Brothers are the big hot thing.
