The “Thigh Gap” is the new teen body obsession that is driving teenage girls crazy. A Thigh gap is the space between a girls thighs when she is standing up straight and her knees are touching. ABC’s Good Morning America sat down with for teenage girls who further explain the image craze.
As ABC reports: “Emily Rozansky told Chang that, for many teens, the thigh gap symbolized “the ideal body shape.”
Social Networking sites such as Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter all have pages dedicated to this topic. Showcasing beautiful women and girls who show off their beloved Thigh Gap to the world. Sounds to me like it’s just a bunch a women who can use an extra chicken wing or a burger no? Ehhh I like em’ a little thick anyway! ABC goes further to state that “According to teen psychologist Barbara Greenberg, statistics show that 80 percent of girls dislike their bodies by the time they are 17 years old. That, combined with a tendency to overshare, makes teen girls vulnerable to even the most subtle messages.”
America tends to spend way much attention on what the “ideal body” should look like, it’s everywhere! on TV, the Internet, billboards.. you name it! These young girls don’t need these kinds of distractions when there’s so much more to life than thigh gaps! What do you think about this new trend?

Unless you live under a rock somewhere, you might have heard by now that MTV is bringing it’s start-studded annual show to the Barclays Center! And if you REALLY have been out of the loop it’s right in the heart of Brooklyn, N.Y.! On Monday 3/5 The Moonman was spotted leaving on the LAX and arriving at JFK around noon. It was then he hopped a cab to times square, caught the D- train to his final stop for the day; The Barclays Center.
Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz states:
“From hip-hop to hipsters, Jay- Z to MGMT, Brooklyn musicians have a long history of dominating the ‘spotlight’ on MTV. Brooklyn is a cultural Mecca — the hippest, coolest place for young people across the country, and has played a crucial role in the careers of some of 2013’s biggest bands, like Fun. and the Lumineers,”
The 2013 MTV VMA’s will take place on Sunday August 25th, what do you think about this famous Award show coming to Brooklyn?
