Modern Caroline

Justin Bieber is running a contest for girls to make their own cover of his hit, “Boyfriend.” The girls, of course, must change the song to “Girlfriend.” This girl, instead of trying to charm Bieber, went for funny and creepy, and I must say that she nailed it. Her video has gone viral.

Shades of Caroline Bingley if I’ve ever seen it. *shiver*

    Bahahaha! This is too good, I hope she wins!

    I think Caroline really wouldn’t care what Darcy was doing or who he was with as long as he left his AmEx on the nightstand and let her hang off his arm at parties.

      Really? I think she would be a control freak. I could see her freaking out if he spoke to Elizabeth or any one else.

        I agree with Monica. Caro is about Caro and all others are in the world to pay attention to her. It takes too much time away from her self aggrandizement to stalk.

              She’s got a laser focus that’s for sure. Tunnel vision in fact. She’s the kind of person who gets hit by a bus while following her prey.

    Well maybe she’d be jealous of Lizzy but no one else. Lol In canon I don’t think she genuinely cared for him in a romantic way; it’s all about the money and status. I get that impression in most fanfics too.

        Excellent point, Robin. This girl found her artistic area of strength — snark comedy — took a risk, and ran with it. Result? Genius!

        To move outside that strength (straight singing without the out-there comedy) is mediocre. So…when we find something we do well, we must run with it!

          You always make me think beyond what I had thought originally. Sometimes, I’m headed in that direction but don’t follow all the way through. Does that make sense?

          This girl has the wide-eyed, crazy thing down. She’s already gone viral, and she should stick with what she does best – rap, snark, very little singing (and then only with a very basic melody).

    Caroline gives JAFF writers a ready made object of scorn, just as Wickham gives us a pre-packaged villain. The plus with Caroline is that she also provides comic relief. This girl has that down in spades.

    This gal will be famous. Either as a Cyber Censation or on wanted posters!

    And, since my connection speeds are wonky, when she moves back from the camera, her teeth smear into points. That makes her UBER creepy.

    Weird Caroline Yankovic – there’s some truth between the lines of crazy. We may have just met the Caroline from the Lizzie Bennet Diaries!
