Martha Stewart is NOT impressed by you HIPSTERS.
The lifestyle guru has a new interview with Luxury Listings where she skewers the work ethic of the millennial generation. And you know, by “skewer” I mean she mildly insults, in her own Martha Stewart-y way. capable of growing a lovely little tomato plant in their own tiny apartment.
Martha Stewart isnÃ¢â¬â¢t impressed by millennials, who she says need to stop living with their parents and find some Ã¢â¬Åinitiative.Ã¢â¬Â The domestic diva, 74, didnÃ¢â¬â¢t mince her words in a new interview with Luxury Listings.
Ã¢â¬ÅI think every business is trying to target millennials. But who are millennials?Ã¢â¬Â she said. Ã¢â¬ÅNow we are finding out that they are living with their parents. They donÃ¢â¬â¢t have the initiative to go out and find a little apartment and grow a tomato plant on the terrace.Ã¢â¬Â
She continued, Ã¢â¬ÅI understand the plight of younger people .Ã¢â¬â°.Ã¢â¬â°. The economic circumstances out there are very grim. But you have to work for it. You have to strive for it. You have to go after it.Ã¢â¬Â Stewart added, Ã¢â¬ÅI got married at 19, and I immediately got an apartment and I fixed it up. I was very proud of everything I did. I got the furniture at auctions for pennies.Ã¢â¬Â
She said that she was encouraged by restaurateur David Chang to focus on educating young people during a recent dinner at her Bedford, NY, farm.
Ã¢â¬ÅDavid Chang kept saying, Ã¢â¬ËMartha, you know so much and the millennials have to know this stuff! .Ã¢â¬â°.Ã¢â¬â°. They donÃ¢â¬â¢t know how to grow spinach.Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬Â
Listen- the world has changed since Martha was a youth, but I think she’s not giving millennials the credit they deserve. It’s hard out there!
