You Can Blame Barney For The Area Tween Star Glut.
Or so one can glean from the Associated Press piece, datelined in Carrollton, that ran in the Morning News and in countless other outlets this past weekend.
(No big deal, but we've already covered this ground, AP! Only, well, not so gushingly...)
This piece, which compares Barney to The Mickey Mouse Club of the '90s, extols the virtues of Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and 10-year-old Seven Pounds star, Madison Pettis, of Arlington.
So take it with a grain of salt.
"I look at [Lovato, Gomez and Pettis] as my role model[s]," says four season Barney & Friends vet, 11-year-old Victoria Lennox of Flower Mound. "This is going to be a great little steppingstone for me. I want to follow in their footsteps."
Lennox goes on to say that, sometimes, when she walks along the beach, she sees two sets of footprints; other times, she only sees one. It's all so confusing!
