anyone else tired of hearing or reading how some celebrity is "rockin" an outfit or dress? Call me old fashioned, but I'd like to still call it "wearing". It's some stupid current hipster BS slang I guess.

I dunno, I always thought it was just a hockey thing, guys always say someone is "rockin" a certain piece of gear or whatever. Nothing to get all bent out of shape about.
