We might not write about every little thing that makes a splash on the pop culture radar, but that doesn’t mean we’re not talking about it. That’s why each Friday Vv Magazine’s editors round up the stuff we loved, hated, debated and obsessed in OVER/UNDER-RATED.
Over-rated: Rebel Wilson’s alleged fib about her age
Whether she’s 29 or 35, we don’t really care if this hilarious Aussie is lying about being six years older than she claims. There’s a lot of age discrimination in Hollywood, particularly towards women, so we actually understand why knocking off a few years might be a make-it-or-break-it career move. Besides, how many male actors in Hollywood actually tell the truth about their height?
Under-rated: Keeping Up With The Kardashians
Go ahead and judge, but you watch the two-part “About Bruce” special and then tell us you’re not hooked. The special revealed plenty that we didn’t know from the now-iconic Diane Sawyer special: Bruce doesn’t have a date set for his gender-confirmation surgery; Kourtney and Scott are keeping the news from their son; and Kris said she feels like Bruce died. For a show about the superficial, it was a refreshing foray into reality – the real kind.
Over-rated: Woman kicked out of Cannes party for wearing flats
Did anyone from the major fashion houses in Paris let Cannes know that flats – gladiator sandals, in particular – are incredibly stylish right now? We expect the French to be snobby and elitist, but not so embarrassingly off-trend.
Over-rated: First photos of 2016’s made-for-TV movie, American Crime Story: People vs. O.J.
Nineties throwback alert! The OJ story featuring Cuba Gooding Jr as OJ, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, and Selma Blair as Kris Jenner. What, was Fabio not available to play Kato Kaelin?
Over-rated: Early May 24
Getting the extended Victoria Day weekend last week was like being woken up in the middle of the night to eat dessert: we weren’t ready, so didn’t fully enjoy it. We’ve got such a bad case of Memorial Day envy that we’re thinking of claiming sanctuary in Buffalo, NY. Carpool, anyone?
Under-rated: The Final Late Show With David Letterman
His late show kept some of us sane through university. This final intro to the show that changed comedy is everything…
Over-rated: Big, expensive weddings
Here’s a thought: why don’t we all just do our own thing this summer and send each other postcards. Deal? All these bridesmaids dresses, shoes, gifts, plane tickets and neatly-wrapped toaster ovens are putting a real strain on our summer fun budget.
Over-rated: Swimsuit season crash diets
That self-made inner tube isn’t going anywhere, so just embrace it. The only reason the term “dad bod” is trending is because men’s wear hasn’t adopted the peplum (yet). Here are the best monokinis and bikinis of the season.
Under-rated: Ruffles Flame Grilled Steak Potato Chips
Like a BBQ in a bag. Don’t knock it ’til you try it, and then go invest in a peplum.
