Sooo Tavi Gevinson. Ladyhero. Nevermind the fact that she's like a decade younger than me, she's still a ladyhero. Tavi was a keynote speaker at the Melbourne Writer's Festival (among others like London's mayor Boris Johnson, bless him). She spoke for about half an hour and then did a Q&A session.
Let me just say that Tavi essentially spoke about what she loves and about how her life is kind of like being a professional fangirl and being creative. Everything she said I've thought, but she says it so much more eloquently than I could ever do. When you have some spare time, check out her speech, because it's really truly great and I relate a lot. Any teenage girl, or anyone who's been a teenager really, would relate! Also, Benjamin Law chats to her in the above video, so that's #awesome!
Yes, Tavi referenced One Direction. And Bieber. Daria. Taylor Swift. The Virgin Suicides. Fleetwood Mac. Rashida Jones. All sorts of amazeball stuff. She makes me rethink my internet bio of "pop culture nerd".
