The Lizzie McGuire Movie ft. YouthCulture2000

2003’s “The Lizzie McGuire Movie” was a HUGE deal to tweens all over the world. Who didn’t want to see their favorite everywoman swept into a highly-fantastical scenario involving Italian pop stars, couture, AND being the center of attention… and all at age 14? Melissa and Mia of YouthCulture2000 join us to discuss and dissect a movie that is truly what dreams are made of.

ABOUT YOUTHCULTURE2000 (in their own words):

It all started when Girl Tony Hawk met Goth Britney Spears. More specifically, it all started when we (Mia and Melissa) met in a UCLA bathroom and talked about our love for The Breeders. From there, a beautiful bond started to form over a mutual fascination with all aspects of 2000s culture.

When quarantine hit in March 2020 and left us in a world full of worry,we started to toy around with the idea of making a Y2K-themed zine so we could bring positive, creative energy into our lives. We met up safely and started the zine by collaging with whatever materials we had on hand while playing plenty of Liz Phair and blink-182 in the background.

As time went on, our ideas and passion for the project grew into the full-fledged webzine you see today! More than just a webzine, this is a reflection of our generation: how our 2000s childhoods formed us, the way music and other media consumes us, and why we hope to always keep a bit of the wild and unpredictable nature of the noughties within us.

This is a movement. This is Youth Culture 2000.
