Lizzie McGuire Movie PosterLizzie, close-up

Fifteen year old industry, Hilary Duff, is featured in the second item of the Observer's New York World column. Why? Because her breasts are stopping men in their tracks. There is some debate about whether or not they are Duff's breasts, but the killer quote is from Elisa DeCarl: "My guess is that they are going for that all-important Humbert Humbert demographic," she said. "The audience will be 90 percent preteens and their parents, 10 percent shifty-looking older men in raincoats." Gothamist thinks shifty-looking older men's ages will start at, oh, 24.

Lynn Harris, who wrote the Observer item, also wrote a Gothamist favorite about guys who like Wilco.

Updated, August 28, 2003: Anil alerted me that we might have a COPPA violation with the kids who comment here, crazy crazy kids who decide to give our their home addresses, home phone numbers, email addresses, and AOL screennames. So Gothamist has closed the comedy gold that were the comments. We may republish them with all the information taken out as a glimpse into the insanity that is today's youth, but until we have an extra 10 hours...
Updated again: We're opening comments back up, while we decide what our next steps should be.
