Ladyfingers Musto On The Aughties
For his decade-end roundup, Village Voice gossip maven Michael Musto drags it up as Miss Ladyfingers USA, Susan Boyle, Lady Gaga, and Michael Jackson. From his column:
The Naughty Aughties are over, and I'm LMFAO. It will be remembered, if at all, as the decade of the TMI generation. The 15-second fame gang. The micromanaging maniacs. The attention-whoring-for-lunch bunch. The iPhone, iPod, iMac, IMAX, and eye-lift folks. The people who have already forgotten this paragraph. Breaking news about every possible global brain fart was instantly accessible, and you spent most of your time sneaking a peek down at your BlackBerry to read it during intimate dinner dates. Everyone was a star, a critic, and a victim, and—as traditional media dwindled and reshaped—they were journalists, too, from the guy who dressed like a pimp to entrap ACORN to the man with a camera who got tossed out of Gypsy when Patti LuPone screamed, "Who do you think you are?"Also check out Musto's Ten Shadiest People, Ten Worst Couples, and Ten Worst Movies.
