Fred Armisen: There is no such thing as hipsters

Fred Armisen of Portlandia explains in this interview at South by Southwest that there is no such thing as hipsters. Which is what I have basically been saying for years (in terms of no one identifying with that term). Fred actually got his start in acting by interviewing other musicians at SXSW many years ago and now the tables have turned. While Fred doesn’t like the hipster label, there are many other words he suggests that you use to describe him: “sporty, muscle builder, or pushy”.
