Jon Hamm Doesn’t Understand Why Miley Cyrus or ‘One Direction’ Exist


‘Mad Man’ actor Jon Hamm is clearly not much of a fan of pop culture – he’s previously bashed the likes of Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton for being famous for no particular reason (he doesn’t see why people are interested) and now he’s also admitted that he just “doesn’t get” Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry or ‘One Direction’. Even though he realizes he sounds like a grumpy old dude, Jon comments that he just doesn’t understand it:

”I got s**t on for saying I don’t agree with the fact that the Kim Kardashians andParis Hilton of the world are worthy of attention and people were saying, ‘How dare you!’ I thought, ‘Wow, really? That’s a terrible thing to say?’ It’s ridiculous. I’m getting older, I’m slowly morphing into that guy who stands on his lawn and shakes his fist and shouts, ‘Get off my lawn!’ All I can is that I don’t get Miley Cyrus, I don’t get Katy Perry, I don’t get One Direction … I don’t get why that’s a thing.”

The former high school teacher says that although he doesn’t have children of his own, he can see other people’s children growing up at an alarming rate and he wants to be there for those in the next generation:

”I was a teacher for a big portion of my life and even though I’m not a father, I have nieces and nephews and friends have kids. A lot of my friends’ kids are getting into double digits and turning into little people and it’s fascinating. You have a duty as an adult to impart to the next generation. I’m happy to do that.”
