What really gets me about stuff like this is how a few select people can take something that just in the recent past was seen as (pick one) tacky, dorky, uncool, tasteless, disgusting, etc. (I'm not talking just about the butt cleavage thing, either...I mean ANYTHING) and suddenly cause it to be immediately cool and acceptable?
I guess what I'm trying to say is: "who makes the rules...and why/how do they change so frequently?".
Remember back in the 80's: if someone even MENTIONED bell bottoms, they were beaten with a lawn mower blade or at least laughed out of the room.
Then, somehow, they actually staged a comeback.
That's why I don't do the trendy thing because I know that no matter how cool something is RIGHT NOW, in 10 years we're either going to be laughing our asses off or vomiting uncontrollably at our participation in them.
But back to this butt crack thing: weren't we, just the other day, it seems, making jokes and seeing sitcom sight gags based on the whole "plumber's butt" thing?
And now, suddenly, it's the height of fashion and the sexiest thing since the Wonder Panty?
I just don't get it. Suppose I never will. I spend a large chunk of my life trying to predict the next big thing, based on the following scientific criteria:
1. how unbelievably ****ing stupid it would seem if the thought crossed our mind right this minute...but in 8 months, hey, who knows? Why not?
So with that, I'm guessing camel toe enhancing jeans and shirts that are strategically cut to expose the most amount of back hair and shoulder zits possible.
