I think I’ve finally crossed into Being Old. While I find YouTube star Emma Chamberlain a delight, I just don’t “get” why she’s such a superstar with the Youngs.
I think some of it has to do with there’s a lot — and I mean A LOT — going on with YouTube that I don’t know anything about. Being a young YouTube star is like the textbook definition of something that I, as an Old, am completely clueless about.
Though, I have to wonder what her actual, real-life relationship is with that aging It Girl, Alexa Chung. Do they hate each other because they represent two slightly overlapping fashion eras? Or do they simply know that Ms. Chamberlain is the future and Ms. Chung is the past and they don’t let it get in the way of their frienship?
Whatever. No one cares what I think.
