5 Things Millennials Are Talking About

August 18, 2014

The Internet is endlessly fascinated with Millennials because Millennials are basically the Internet. Since they’re all we can talk about anymore, let’s look at what those youthful hooligans have been up to lately:

1. Millennial Models Cover Vogue September Issue 

For this year’s much-anticipated Vogue September issue, Anna Wintour switched things up by putting not one but nine supermodels on the cover. Historically, Vogue pioneered the celebrity magazine cover, but perhaps those days are over. Cover girls Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Arizona Muse, Edie Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente and Andreea Diaconu are also being called “The Instagirls” for their influential social media presence. Will these Millennial models garner more “likes” for the magazine than some old fart celeb? [Vogue]

2. Millennials Only Wear Denim Button-Ups

With each passing week a new article over-analyzing Millennials is published; the New York Times is the latest offender. Apparently, Millennials are a generation of optimistic do-gooders who also really, really like denim button-ups. [NYTimes]

3. Chris Martin is (Maybe) Dating Jennifer Lawrence Because She is a Pizza-Eating Millennial 

Whether or not it’s actually true that Jennifer Lawrence is dating Coldplay’s Chris Martin, the resulting headlines are too good to ignore. This one from Mirror is our favorite: “Chris Martin fell for pizza-eating smoker Jennifer Lawrence because she’s nothing like clean-living Gwyneth Paltrow.” Well, there you have it. [Mirror]

4. Millennials Like Getting “Craft Baked”

Everyone’s favorite Millennial, Miley Cyrus, is really into crafting now. This week, she takes her passion to new heights with this 5-ft beaded bong, which she describes on Instagram as a “work in progress.” Can we call this weird collision of infancy and illegality as getting “craft baked?” See what I did there?

5. Voice of Millennial Generation Dyes Hair Platinum; Proves Anything Is Possible

Lena Dunham, the self-proclaimed “voice of a generation,” got a platinum bowl cut this weekend because Millennials can do whatever they want whenever they want as long as they take a selfie to prove they did it. [Instagram]

    Thank you for including a picture of the bong. I was going to go look it up, but you saved me some time.

    I have a lot of hope for the younger girls, like the Rookie Mag era teens. “Millennials” are so boring and self-obsessed and self-loathing. I’m in their age bracket, but all of my favorite people are either teenagers or old people.

    • Hannah

      us current Rookie Mag era teens are still, for better or worse, millennials (anyone born from 1980-2000)

  • Alexandra Puffer

    Anything Cara does is right now will take off – but all of the generalizations of millennials (me) are so nauseating. I’m guilty of the denim button up: http://instagram.com/p/cNSdUImM0L/?modal=true
