Okay, these kids don't read magazines, don't really watch TV-except for College Hill but they hate 106 & Park, think sorta Oprah is cool but Tyra is the answer and prefer Rhi-Rhi over Beyonce. Apparently their days outside of school consist of jobs/sports/ hanging out, doing homework (I hope), working on their myspace pages, watching videos on Youtube and texting to one another CONSTANTLY.
Can I tell you how out of the loop I felt? I was like, well what about CosmoGirl, Seventeen or VIBE? Nope. Do you log on to prezhilton, bossip and The YBF? Huh, what's that? When I brought up going on the radio to publicize the book, they were like, "Yeah, do that. Oh and by the way, I listen to the radio between 6 -7am." 6-7am???? No maam. Can't nothing good come out of my mouth before 8am. SIGH.
But I refuse to be intimidated. Somebody is buying the Gossip Girl, the Clique and all those Meg Cobot books, got dammit. And if a pinktoe can do, so can I!!!
Now, will somebody please tell me how to contact the booker at Tyra's show?
