    omg is that Lauren Rocket in the Dirty Girls doc?

    something that went mini viral this week was a 17 year old documentary called “Dirty Girls”

    about some 13 year old, relatively affluent westside 8th graders who were acting out by being

    allegedly

    smelly and stinky and unfeminine.

    in the DIY low-budget doc, made by a high school senior, we meet two sisters who are no dummies.

    they align themselves with the riot grrls of the 90s

    and are influenced by kurt cobain’s post punk self loathing/self empowerment.

    but stealing the show is their friend, a doe eyed blonde, who the world now knows as Lauren Rocket.

    while still in high school lauren clark, lauren rocket, and their friend lauren, formed the all girl band Rocket

    they got on an american idol tv show on Fox for bands,

    and despite that toured the country

    played at sxsw’s most prestigious party of 2006,

    and rocked for years

    but then tragically broke up right as it seemed like their new lineup was poised to take it all to the next level

    Lauren has been in a few other bands since Rocket, most recently an oufit called Lavinia Slaughter

    she also found a bunch of old Rolling Stones pics at a flea market last year and turned it into an art show

    and now, this week, shes back in the public discussion.

    her 8th grade self is, at least.

    as BFF of the dirty girls.

    which, if anything, gave us my new favorite word:

    hideosity.
