Is Camp Dead ???

Seems like the 70's & 80's were filled with camp (personalities, tv, movies, books, music) .... recently, not so much .....

If you disagree that camp is dead, please give some recent examples of camp that show that the campy stuff still lives on. TIA.

The thing about camp is its best when its unintentional. When someone sets out to produce something camp, they often fail (Rocky Horror being one of the few exceptions.)

Nicki Minaj at the Grammys. She thought she was being artsy and avant garde, but she's like a litle black girl who won a minority scholarship to a fancy art school- and just doesn't get it.

I'd argue shows like Honey Boo-Boo and Jersey Shore are camp.

The movie Pitch Perfect was pretty damned campy in a modern way.

Willam Belli - modern camp champ.

Would Lady Gaga or Katy Perry be considered 'camp' ?

Madonna showing off her cooch in concert last summer was camp. Unintentional camp.

Let's hope that it is...dead and gone for good, do not resuscitate!

flag: [ww] [ff] [troll-dar] I wrote this before on here. Maria wants us to believe she has higher standards. She knew Arnold cheated an largely looked the other way. Don't believe the innocent act.

Camp died when society got so uptight about masculinity as to invent the word 'bromance.'

That, and every cunt who ever cunted having access to the internet, and as such the ability to try and cause a shitstorm, means that you'll probably never see the likes of Paul Lynde on US TV again.
