Molly's Emo Pic

I've been wanting to post this for a while. I get a kick out of Molly's Emo look. I learned what Emo is from all the hip teenagers I associate with. If you are out of it like I was, here's the definition:

Emo (pronounced /ˈiːmoʊ/) is a genre of music that originated from hardcore punk [1] and later adopted pop punk influences when it became mainstream in the US.

Today emo is more commonly tied to fashion than to music,[18] and the term "emo" is sometimes stereotyped with tight jeans on males and females alike, long fringe (bangs) brushed to one side of the face or over one or both eyes, dyed black, straight hair, tight t-shirts (sometimes short sleeved) which often bear the names of emo bands (or other designer shirts), studded belts, belt buckles, canvas sneakers or skate shoes or other black shoes (often old and beaten up) and thick, black horn-rimmed glasses.[19][20][21] This fashion has at times been characterized as a fad.[22]

Here is a sample picture of an Emo kid:

Meg! You are SO behind the times! I had a college roommate that was way into emo (dashboard confessional, etc)and therefore, way into the emo style (side bangs and all). LOL! Molly is simply adorable.

I love Molly! Even though she may be emo sometimes, she can hang with me.
And, I just have to say that I loathe the emo jean style (especially on guys)! Seriously, dudes should not be sporting pants like that - no matter what! It's not a fashion statement - it's just horrible dressing at its worst!
