THE COOL FACTOR, EXPOSED

A delightful Buzzfeed article, "I Asked A Bunch Of Teens To Tell Me Which Celebrities Are Cool And Not Cool And Here's What They Said," went up online Tuesday.

Who made the good list? Demi Lovato, KhalidRihanna, LordeSam Smith, Lin-Manuel Miranda and "a raunchy, sex-positive rapper" named Cupcakke are among the cool—along with the Obama family, Oprah, Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard, media personality Jenna Marbles and more from the non-music camp. 

Taylor Swift, on the other hand, was listed as "cool, but also not cool," while the Kardashian/Jenner clan was dubbed "cool and not cool"; Kim and Khloe got the seal of approval, but Kylie wasn't so lucky.

Jared Leto and Amy Schumer both got a thumbs down.

Read the whole thing here.

Meanwhile at HITS, we've been uncool since '86. And yes, we are working on getting footie pajamas made with that phrase embroidered on the butt flap.
