I recently discovered that Florence Welch and Lady Gaga are the same age. That age is twenty-six. I also discovered that Carly Rae Jepsen, the brilliant mind behind the most irritating song of 2012 (behind anything Taylor Swift released that year, let’s be real), is actually one year older than both of them. Whaaaaaaaat? Hilary Duff is actually two years younger than Carly Rae Jepsen. That feels utterly ridiculous to me.
I just don’t understand. There are very few good, unobstructed shots of Lady Gaga’s face, so it’s hard to tell whether she looks her age.
To me, Florence Welch looks about thirty-five, but that could be just me. I’m terrible at guessing people’s ages. I think kids at the dance studio are fourteen and they’re actually eight.
I will never get past this. I am finding it very hard to reconcile the fact that Carly Rae Jepsen is older than Florence Welch.
