Pete Davidson And The Rise Of The Pixie Boyfriend

Welcome to Lowbrow! Your cheat-sheet to big pop-culture moments from the perspective of two women 25 years apart.

You may have heard of the manic pixie dream girl, but she is so 2000s. Now everyone wants a manic pixie dream boyfriend. Wondering what that is? On this episode of Lowbrow, Em explains to Holly what a "Pixie Boyfriend" is and why every It Girl in Hollywood is getting one.

Plus, she points out some of the most famous pixie boyfriends, including the 'head pixie', Pete Davidson, and includes a check list so you know if you're dating one yourself.

One story, two generations, so much WTF.
