Wait, Why Is Lauren Conrad a Person We Talk About Again?Lindy West9/25/12 10:00amFiled to: Celebrityzzzzzlauren conradLCtweetFb95EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink Lauren Conrad. Okay. I have absolutely nothing against LC. She seems totally nice, quiet, mauve, and weirdly solemn—she doesn't offend me or bother me or piss me off. (One glorious time she did make me laugh my ass off, but that seems like a one-off production.) Obviously she has some level of marketability, because people keep marketing her to us as a crafter, a smiler, a purveyor of formal shorts. But mostly doesn't she just read like...a civilian? Your prettiest neighbor? Is our nation's current level of LC coverage—which is now going on, like, 8 years—really warranted?
