Isan Elba, the 17-year-old daughter of Idris Elba and this year’s Golden Globes Ambassador, may have the gig that all the teens want (“You’ll see me on stage holding the trophies, and I get to see cool celebrities; it’s a big deal”, she told People) but who wants to enjoy the unending spoils of nepotism when you could make your entrée into Hollywood society with a high-end catering gig?
Embodying very 2019 energy is the Fiji Water Girl, whose thirsty lurking in the background of many a red carpet photo – serving looks and serving bottled water – has earned her the accolade of being the first great meme of 2019.
“It’s all strategic,” the Fiji Water photo-bomber told The LA Times. “You’ve got to angle.”
You’ve simply got to angle. Now, get to work.
There could be 100 Fiji waters on the red carpet… but it only takes one to quench your thirst pic.twitter.com/Z1GpKiI2w5

Don’t let the FIJI water girl distract you from the fact that unless you have no alternative, single-use plastic bottled water is a terrible thing to do to the environment.
