2013 is Basically 2006 All Over Again in Pop Culture

As we head into Golden Globes weekend, which finds our favorite Chicago comedy alums reuniting, there are a few other things are giving us déjà vu.

Yes, we’re only ten days into the year, but we’re already having some major déjà vu. But we’re not complaining.

Let’s start at the top. Our favorite Chicago comedy alums, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, are reuniting to host the Golden Globes this Sunday. We’ve been wandering fools since they signed off from Weekend Update in 2006—and the breakup may be directly responsible for the downfall of the now mentor-less Lindsay Lohan.

There’s more!

Justin Timberlake is (POSSIBLY) giving us his first album since 2006’s FutureSex/LoveSounds. We really can’t follow anything he’s saying in his sexy pseudo-whisper, but we’re still on board. Especially if he brings some of his old style back, too.

Destiny’s Child is reuniting and putting out a new song. Last reunion: February 19, 2006.

Ang Lee is heading to the Oscars again for Best Picture and Best Director.

Speaking of Oscars, Philip Seymour Hoffman will be there again, too.

While we’re on the subject of movies, Superman is flying through movie theaters again this summer, giving us our first new Clark Kent since Brandon Routh.

Katharine McPhee, from American Idol Season 5, is singing again on TV, although really what we’re excited about in television this year is the first new episodes of Arrested Development since 2006.

And, to end on another Chicago note, strange celebrity couples are procreating again—move over Suri, it’s Kimye’s time to shine.
