This week’s fun has definitely been done before, but, frankly I don’t care, for two reasons:
- The last time we did this, it was way too much fun.
- By the time you’re reading this, I’ll be in an undisclosed location without any internet, probably without any furniture, and very likely crying while surrounded by boxes. Aka I’m moving.
Idol scandals are a weird thing. They can go from anything from “this idol just got arrested” to “this idol has a similar kind of love life as any other woman aged 18 to 25” to “this idol did literally nothing wrong, but the company she works for just committed a human rights violation.” They come out of nowhere, send the whole fandom aflutter with a mixture of rage and/or sympathy, and, as much as most of us would hate to admit it, are kind of fun to watch from afar.
With idol scandals, unless you’re actually working in the industry, they’re normally kind of difficult to predict. Doesn’t mean we can’t do it anyway though!
This week, predict what big controversy is going to happen next with the hashtag #PredictAnIdolScandal, and please fill me in on whatever I missed when I finally get my internet back!
