haha, I'm 21 and I kinda agree. Worst thing is that much of the time, the magazines that I love really make me feel old (which I shouldn't, I'm 21!). I think 14 is the new 20 and 20 is the new... 40 something.

On the other hand, I think it's cool that magazines let the young (and restless) have their voice and say. Most 14 year olds I know are useless brats (no offence to anyone), yet you read about the 14-15-something that have their own clubs and bloody art-galleries (ok, maybe not, but almost). Then you read the blogs of these outlandishly stylish 12-year old, and realize that when I was 12 I wore the most generic things from H&M that my mum probably picked out. Jeez!

But yeah, give the kids a voice, but if you look at i-D they do it but still comes across as mature. I know that Dazed aren't a bunch of teens, so they should be able to portray it better. The main thing that irks me about this issue is that they JUST had the "youths of england"-issue. Now this? C'mon!

I know I know. And i-D is/has gone the same way too.

I think it's the internet or often inherited cool (in the case of those who have famous parents) because when I was 14 no one was ever that cool. What happened to geeky and awkward phases , people can can on the internet and see how to dress what bands to listen to etc Obviously it's not as simple as that though.
