Trendspotter: Comebacks

BY DI ARTS STAFF | MARCH 6, 2009 7:22 AM

This week’s trendspotter is the core of most trends: something old becoming new again (and not in the Botoxed, Janice Dickinson way). While LL Cool J might object, this week’s trendspotter is all about comebacks, not to be confused with the superb former HBO series starring Lisa Kudrow.

2009 is all about second chances, whether it’s Michael “too creepy for words” Jackson’s announcement Thursday of 10 upcoming performances in London’s O2 Arena or Mickey Rourke’s almost Oscar-worthy return to relevance with The Wrestler. Even Rihanna and Chris Brown are giving their love another go, at least according to People magazine (though that seems to have less to do with trends and more to do with low self-esteem and dependence issues, but who am I to judge?).

Nothing feels better than rereading an old classic — pick up Bedtime for Frances, and you’ll see what I mean — or rediscovering an old gem such as the Spice Girls’ “Wannabe” (though I’m partial to “Move Over”). So rifle through that junk drawer and bust out something so old it’s new. Mel C and her nonexistent career might thank you.
