To me, the year 2010 seemed culturally identical to 2009, though somewhat different from say, 2004. I would still say it had mostly a 00s vibe, after all, Eminem was the biggest musical artist of 2010, but I do notice something of a new "2010s" vibe coming through. I notice fashion has finally ditched the 90s grunge/gangsta thing that held on for so long and is becoming more 80s-like and neon. I even think big hair has made a small comeback!

But really it's pretty normal for the first year of a decade to feel like still the previous decade - 1980 is very 70s styled, 1990 is very 80s styled, 2000 was still very 90s.

Do you think there will be a shift in pop culture in 2011? Or are we stuck with what was popular in the 00s for another decade?

I'm 33. I find the sight of people my age and older wearing clothes from our childhoods - i.e. leggings (which look awful on 90% of people) - really funny. I've been noticing a lot of 80's trends for the last few years but especially this year.

2011 is just as much part of the 10s as 2015!

It is possible based on history. 1980 was a big change in direction from 1979 and 1991 launched us in a new direction as grunge allowed for a more unpolished "punkish" sound to be more popular.

I hope we get a shift, there really isnít any popular music that I like right now. Of course I felt that way in the late 80ís also.

I think the whole decade will be remembered for being over-sexed and self-indulgent. Everything can be taken to the extreme of it becoming harmful....and I think we are dangerously close to that thin line.

well if Justin B is any indication, we could be in for a few more years of Disney-esque pop music formulated to appeal to tweeners & middle school kiddies. I'm not going to judge though since even Motown of the 60's --artfully crafted to woo teen girls-- churned out many classic R&B hits.

Usually, a decade doesn't develop a trend until about the third year in, or sometimes even later. Check back in 2013-2014.

So, the answer is "none of the above" for me.

The beginning of an extreme narcissistic mentality? I think of everyone glued to their Facebook and Twitter accounts, and now those smartphone things that people cannot put down. My two cents.
