Pop Project Explains: Cady Herron was the villain in ‘Mean Girls’

That’s so fetch

Yesterday was the 14th anniversary of the release of the most iconic movie, “Mean Girls.” If you have not seen this movie, then I’m deeply sorry for you. This movie will change your life. I thought that I would explain the movie in honor of the release of this movie. It was during my research that I discovered something more chilling and true. I was upset that I didn’t notice it earlier. Welcome to the latest edition of “Pop Project Explains.” This is where I explain things.

In the movie, Lindsay Lohan stars as Cady Herron. Cady is supposed to be the protagonist of the film because she is the main character/narrator of the film. But in all actuality, she’s really the villain of the film. You read that correctly. Now before you click off of this, I’m not saying that Regina George is a saint. She is far from it. But let’s look at the bigger picture here.

Cady Herron, with the help of Janis and Damien, was systematically destroying Regina’s life. They broke up Aaron Samuels and Regina, made The Plastics turn again her, and they even made gain weight so she would lose her “bitchin’ bod.” Then once they got did ruin her life, Cady pretty much just swooped in and stole Regina’s life and gained control of The Plastics. She cast aside her relationship with Janis and Damien once she was done with their help. This is just icing on the cake our so-called “protagonist.”

Cady Herron lied and used people. Granted, Regina did the same thing to a certain degree. But Regina just did to get her way to the top. Cady just did it for revenge. Regina did something selfish and Cady wanted to ruin her life over something small. Cady sought out to ruin and destroy Regina’s world.

Please explain to me how we should be rooting for Cady. She doesn’t seem like the person that I would root. I’d honestly rather root for Regina George if I had to pick the worst of two evils. “Mean Girls” is really about two evil and manipulative girls trying to out-bitch each other. The one we aren’t supposed to like is the victim. Regina George victimized people but not to the extent of Cady Herron. Both did repent their ways at the end but as JoJo said, “It’s just a little too late.”

I hope that I just ruined “Mean Girls” for you because my love for the movie is scarred for life. Granted, I’ll still watch it because it’s the best movie of all time. But I will be cussing out Cady more than Regina.
