my neighbor is 9 years old. she wears abercrombie and fitch, wears heavy makeup, bleaches her hair, and has fake nails. NINE YEARS OLD.
my brother is in middle school and whenever I go to pick him up I notice the girls coming out of the school look like they're my age or older. they're all so tall and made up and it's just crazy.
take this girl for instance

she's 15 or 16 but looks like she's in her 20s
same for this girl

i swear I'm going to go crazy. guys in my high school are dating middle school girls and my older brother's college friends date high school freshmen.

if you pitch it they will buy
propper proporting of public pieces on personal personifications produce pestillance and perplexing results
what you are whittnessing is something I like to call a new life crisis
they see beauty and independence as being that ideal age range and thus try and mimic it (ofcourse marketing and publications also don't help either)
let's face it everyone want to be mature beautiful and taken seriously at a young age insercurities settle in, seriousness or patience isn't taken for what they may say, and
but yah marketing finds strange ways of making it basically mandatory for a person to look a certain way (even if they aren't) buying from aeropostal and The Bay instead of Roots or wallmart, getting name brands that their peers wear, doing there own makeup while the huggies commercial in the background ends with it's famous jingle following a show on mtv (this has just become a tangent and therefore will stop...sorry about that).
and as one guy from one website on one video once put it "this is what I like to call the cult of brand"
but yeah this is how they want to portray themselves, but don't worry the usual fab comes at 5-6 year intervals despite the audience: so what was jarring news today will soon be jarring news for yesteryear, and besides do you remember what you were like when you were their age, if your around my age (19) then you should remember doing similar stuff like that maybe not directly addressed to you like it is now, but yah.0
