HOLLYWOOD - Young teen queen Selena Gomez is no stranger when it comes to starting teen trends, avant garde crazes, and fashion rages.
The young singer from Grand Prairie, Texas has certainly become an innovational icon.
She was the first to wear the 'Purity Ring' which quickly became the largest selling ring in history, even surpassing the sales of friendship rings, engagement rings, and wedding rings.
Tittle Tattle Tonight recently reported that because of the positive impact that the ring has had on many of America's young teens the state of North Carolina recently passed legislation making the "Purity Ring" the official state jewelry of North Carolina.
Gomez was honored with a parade in the town of Winston-Salem and she was made an honorary citizen of North Carolina by Governor Bev "Smiley Face" Perdue.
This means that when Selena turns 21, she will legally be allowed to vote in all North Carolina state elections.
Governor Perdue has also stated that she will be nicknaming Interstate 77 as The Selena Gomez Purity Ring Interstate.
3T reporter Papaya Ruckusgarden interviewed Gomez and asked about the latest "No Socks" fad, which she is being credited with starting and which is currently sweeping the nation from the Left Coast to the Right Coast and down to the Third Coast.
Selena who is a very shy and humble individual replied that she was pleased and that she has received hundreds of text messages, emails, and phone calls from her fans thanking her for once again leading the way and being one of the young leaders in youth innovations.
Gomez will be appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show and discussing the new trend. She will then immediately fly to Boise, Idaho, where she will perform at a sold-out concert at The Mashed Potatoes Arena.
With all of the excitement that Selena Gomez has generated with her "No Socks" fad Tittle Tattle Tonight must report that the American Sock Industry is to say the least not at all happy.
A spokesperson for the ASI, Valentina Klinkenberg, 53, stated that just since Gomez initiated the "Sockless" craze national sales of socks have declined by 78 percent.
The American Sock Industry hopes to make up the difference by signing a contract with China to provide socks for the Chinese military.
