Zooey Deschanel’s Lament
You loved her in (500) Days Of Summer, you can’t stop listening to She & Him, and you strongly believe The New Girl is based upon your own life. Basically, you’re so Zooey right now. And why wouldn’t you be? She’s Katy Perry’s twin sister. The blueprint for every indie girl. The reigning Queen of Quirkiness. But not all is well for Zooey Deschanel…
As you may have noticed, her quirkiness is rubbing off on everyone. Women all around the world are getting their bangs trimmed, starting leaf collections, posting photos with their cat, and learning the rap verses to popular songs. However, while her influence may be great (and you’ve gotten strangely good at krumping ironically), this does not bode well for Zooey.
Zooey is renown for her quirkiness, but if every other girl starts being quirky, Zooey will have to get quirkier. And then quirkier. And then quirkier again. Where does that end? How can it? Will Zooey need to create her own zany language and start walking on her hands? Will she explode in a supernova of quirk? Or will reverting back to normality be the new “quirky”?
That is Zooey’s reality, her struggle, and her fate.
We’ll just have to wait and see…
