Previously, Lewys has tackled topics from Love Island reunions, to the end of the X-factor generation, all sprinkled with some very special guests. This season, Lewys & Isla have got even juicier content, for every pop culture moment. We put Lewys and Isla in the hot seat to tell us what they think will be poppin’ off in 2023…
HI GUYS! SO, WHAT ARE YOU EXCITED TO TALK ABOUT ON POP OFF THIS YEAR?
Lewys: Well well well! There is so much to get into. We’ve loved the red carpets of the year so far, the controversies and awkward encounters included.
Isla: As expected, there’s also been some juicy Kardashian’s antics this year so far and we’re looking forward to unexpected discussion points like Ice Spice popping up on North West’s TikTok out of nowhere.
WHAT ARE THE HOT POP CULTURE EVENTS YOU’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO?
I: We’re covering everything you would talk about in your group chat.
L: Exactly, we’ll be covering The Met Gala, Love Island, all the juicy Netflix shows… Nothing is off limits for us.
WHAT ARE YOUR 2023 TREND PREDICTIONS? FASHION? SOCIAL MEDIA? TIKTOK?
I: I really hope people are going to start developing their own styles and not feed into microtrends as much. I also would love to see people being more sustainable.
L: I’d like to see people being themselves. TikTok has made it so easy for people to be carbon copies, so let’s bring back authenticity in 2023. And men in skirts.
WHAT SHOULD PEOPLE EXPECT FROM THIS NEW ERA OF POP OFF?
I: Becoming obsessed with entertainment news that you didn’t know you cared about.
L: Lots of laughs and light relief. Escapism from the day to day, because it’s much more fun living the drama vicariously. It’s been amazing bringing Isla into the Pop Off universe.
AND FINALLY GIVE US YOUR FAVOURITE POP CULTURE MOMENT OF ALL TIME!
L: As a former Cheryl stan, anything she has done. Highlights include the Fight For This Love music video, ‘whenever you’re ready’ and when she went ghost hunting with the rest of Girls Aloud.
I: I’m a South London girl through and through so it has to be Charley Uchea on Big Brother. Every Thursday, Pop Off is going to be the hottest place to be for all your reality TV hot scoops and social media storms.
