I think we were overseas when the news broke all over the world that Chris Cornell, frontman for the band Soundgarden, had died. Who? Never heard of him or the band.
In court in Melbourne of late has been the Australian born American film star by the name of Rebel Wilson. Nope, not heard of her either.
The performer in Manchester where such a terrible thing happened was the world famous Ariana Grande. You've guessed it. I have never heard of her either.
I don't want to further clutter my brain with more even more useless knowledge that my brain already retains but to not ever heard of such world famous people surprises me.
I feel very old and ignorant. Maybe it is because I don't have contact with younger people regularly and only focus on one or two news sources that could not be described as promoters of popular culture.
