The Sleazy Ol’ Days

This week’s Throwback Thursday is brought to you by a Tumblr dedicated to 2000s-era celebrity culture, better known as Pop Culture Died In 2009! For those who miss that era of genuine yet outrageous celebrity gossip, before social media, so-called smartphones, and manufactured PR killed off the fun, PCDin2009 is for you! Ah, the no-filter days of the 3 Bs (Britney, Brangelina, and Bennifer), Jacko and Tommy Cruise going off the rails, Lindsay playing with knives and writing “Scarlett is a bloody cunt” on a bathroom wall (among all the other crazy shit she did back then), and starlets going out sans panties and flipping off paparazzi after getting wasted in the clubs…and doing it all again next week. If there was a perfume inspired by that time frame, it would be called Eau So Trashy and its smell would be a mix of spray tanner, a worn-out Ed Hardy shirt, Club LAX on a Saturday night, and Deliciously Kissable Belly Button Love Potion Fragrance from Jessica Simpson’s defunct but not forgotten “Dessert” line. And yes I’d buy a few bottles of that. Anything to remind me of my 20s.

Bonus shit for those also craving 2000s-era nostalgia: notorious hotspots of Young Hollywood back then and an insightful interview with the creator of that cool Tumblr site.
