Vogue magazine has crowned the new “brat pack” of this generation and apparently that includes the likes of Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and several others.
In case you didn’t know, the term “brat pack” was given to beloved eighties actors and actresses like Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, Emilio Estevez, Demi Moore, Rob Lowe and Anthony Michael Hall. These people were solid entertainers and some still are. They had talent, but were never more known for their personal lives.
Now, a new “brat pack” is taking over and I’m not sure it was a wise move for the magazine to give these younger generation celebs the same label as these loved actors and actresses.
Along with Bieber, Jenner and Hadid are Ansel Elgort, Dylan Penn and Hopper Penn. Bieber said, “I’ve been kind of on the low, just working on the new album. Maybe I’ve had too much time on my hands. Now I’m ready to get back on the grid.”
Jenner also spoke of her newfound friendship with Gigi Hadid. She said, “Gigi and I? We first met at Nobu Malibu. I knew her young sister better back then, but – flash forward a while – Gigi and I both ended up modeling in New York a lot, so we started to get together and, of course, clicked right away.”
Divergent star Ansel Elgort also made the cut, telling the magazine he likes “a lot about L.A.” including “getting really good sushi and going to Venice Beach to play basketball and watch the skateboarders.”
And while the young stars are only just beginning, Jenner tells Vogue there are downsides to attaining fame. “I like to think that I can just grab a pair of sunglasses and go anywhere — but subconsciously I’m aware when I’m at the gym that I need to save some energy so I can do a 40-heard dash, in sub-4.5 seconds, straight to the front seat of my car when I leave,” the brunette said of the paparazzi.
What do you make of all of this?
