Unpopular Opinion: She’s The Man Is Better Than Mean Girls

She's the Man turns 10 today (March 17), which means I've been championing it over Mean Girls for a solid decade. All right, let's get one thing straight: I love Mean Girls just as much as the next person, but if I were forced to pick one to save for posterity and one to ban from mankind for eternity, I'd save She's the Man for several reasons.

About

Stacey Grant

"If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth."

While I can't sum up my life better than Holden Caulfield can, I will tell you I've been an entertainment writer and reporter for MTV News, BuzzFeed, HTZ Apps, and Lone Star Film Society. I also regularly wrote for MTV's Snapchat Discover channel.

I also worked at Time Inc. as a digital media intern, coordinating with several of the brands to produce content for the company's then-parternship with the app Trivia Crack.

I've interviewed myriad of celebs via in-person, phone, and email, and have maintained numerous connections with both talent and publicists.

Moreover, I've had training with different content management systems, social media, GIF making, light coding, and Photoshop.
