    I'm sorry for posting this thread in the wrong spot. Even thought the 2000's technically ended in 2009, it seems a lot of culture from the 2000's is still relevant now. When do you think 2000's culture will die out? I think by next year or 2015, I think is when we will start feeling like a new decade. I think right now culturally, not a whole lot seems different from the mid-to-late 2000's.

      We'll know in about 20 years, when we can gain some distance to identify which things stood out.

        I think they ended about 2010/2011.

        Some reasons why:

        *The decline of melismatic singers like Mariah, Leona Lewis and Lady Gaga
        *The end of the Iraq War
        *Singers like Kesha, La Roux and Cheryl Cole dominating pop
        *The hipsterisation of rap
        *The death of emo
        *Movies like Kick-Ass and The Amazing Spiderman have a distinct style, and are filmed in a different way. Movies like Nick and Norah ('08 ) and Scott Pilgrim (2010) still have that 2007ish Judd Apatow type feel to them.
        *Nobody cares about Ciara or 50 Cent anymore. In fact slow jams are totally dead, in 2006 they were still huge.
        *The rise of the smart phone and tablets.
        *Skinny jeans (probably a bit earlier than 2010 actually, but still)
        *Skrillex and dubstep, and synth music being cool again.

        I don't really consider 2013 an extension of the 00s. Though it's not hugely different. The 2010s aren't very original, the 90s were the last decade that was a huge contrast from the previous.

            The 2000s culturally ended in 2007. For example...

            Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry are just 10s artists that happened to become popular in the LATE 00s

                      Earlier than that. Katy Perry and Lady Gaga were popular by 2008.

                        Lady Gaga does not represent the 00s. Maybe the LATE 00s, but not the 00s overall. Also just because 2013 may be similar to 2009 doesn't mean it's similar to 2002. The last couple of literal years alone can't speak for a whole decade.

                            I think it ended in 2010 when they were both now known around the world

                              I consider Lady Gaga more of a 00s artist, because she had the 90s/00s style of singing and production-wise is connected to that whole Timbaland thing. She also declined considerably in popularity by 2011/2012.

                                  Even if that were true, Lady Gaga's debut album didn't come out until August 2008, so she was barely relevant for more than a year. Besides, Katy Perry has been even successful in the 10s. Teenage Dream had a string of number one hits.

                                    I definitley stand by the idea that if you have to pick the last year of the cultural 00s, it was 2007. 2008 was like the dawn of a new era.

                                      Yeah plus Perry is much better than Gaga

                                          I consider Gaga more 00s because her biggest year was undoubtedly 2009 and her style is just more in line with the past decade I think. Katy and Kesha are more of this decade, though.
