When did pop music die?

The world is in grief as the King of the Pop died. The legend, the icon, the master of entertainment is gone and he left a giant, empty spot in what we imagined as the future of the music.

He created the whole new world and made us believe anything is possible. He had his own, unique style and was the only person that ever knew how to perform an outstanding show.


When did it change from that delightful, tasteful, spectacular music that made you dance:

to that?

Who should we blame? The producers? The TV, that stupefies the nations?

No. It's us who made it possible. It's us, people, who first bought the tapes of Backstreet Boys, then the CD's of Britney Spears, who go to the concerts of Rihanna, who spend hours reading about those self proclaimed stars.

We are to blame for this collapse. I dread to think what we are going to worship next.

Applause for the Master.

Where did Hermione go?

It's raining, the wind is blowing, the sky is gray, the semester is over and there's nothing on TV... yes, this is one of those days when I feel like sitting alone at home, in my PJ, with a cup of tea and a bowl of ice cream. And, actually, that's exactly what I'm doing right now.

Suddenly today I felt old. And it's not because I'm turning 22 on Friday, nor because I'm about to graduate from university. It's because I saw this:

Just how fabulous does Emma Watson look on this shoot for Burberry?! Her strong, confident glance is just amazing. And I'm feeling old, because I remember her more like that:

than that:

Is it me, or is there some kind of resemblance to Victoria Beckham?

Despite she's always been naturally beautiful, I've never suspected that Emma could have that much of supermodel quality. I'm waiting for more!
