SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE NO. 34,919
Key Quote: "I think an 'Idol' is someone that you can look up to, someone who carries herself in a way that people will look up to her," Barrino said in a statement.
Look up to her? Look UP to her?? I live in a household containing, by conservative estimate, 17,000 Barbie dolls, and just for the record:
1. They are all very short.
2. Most of them, most of the time, are naked.
Disturbing Update: Moments after I wrote the post above, I went to check on my 4-year-old daughter, who was, as usual, in her room playing with her Barbies. She had one Barbie who was wearing a wedding dress, propped up next to Ken, who was... also wearing a dress.
"Why is Ken wearing a dress?" I asked.
My daughter only laughed. It was not a reassuring laugh.
