* DumbIsGood: After being cool to act dumb in the 2000s, this has gotten a backlash. Creator/EmmaWatson, who played BrainyBrunette extraordinaire [[Film/HarryPotter Hermione Granger]] spoke against girls dumbing themselves down, citing Hermione as someone not afraid to be intelligent. Creator/ParisHilton quietly dropped the DumbBlonde image she had cultivated for herself in the 2000s, and celebrities are more likely to be shamed for ditziness or cluelessness. NerdsAreSexy rose in popularity, and even glasses became seen as sexy rather than off-putting.

* ElectronicMusic: Exploded in popularity with the millennial generation in particular around 2011-12 in the US (though it has been popular for much longer in continental Europe), quickly becoming the defining genre of the decade with urban music, its only credible contender (having surpassed rock as America's most popular music genre) having incorporated electronic aspects to catch up, often crossing over as "[[JustHereForGodzilla featured]] [[WolverinePublicity artists]]" on EDM songs.

** IndieRock: Often considered to be more of an electronic genre, British "indie rock"[[note]]The more folk-based American indie rock has been pronounced dead[[/note]] and "fire pop" has not only contributed to a new "British invasion" [[note]]Many of the artists of the genre have shunned "beat-makers" and digital synthesisers in favour of the analogue synths of the 1960s[[/note]], but it has also kept rock music's mainstream popularity alive in the wake of post-grunge and pop-punk becoming DeaderThanDisco and more traditional genres facing the demise of several icons.

** {{Synthpop}}: Still PopRevival: British groups reminiscent of 1960s-era music[[note]]with some of them using analogue synths from the 1960s[[/note]] have become quite popular, especially among several rock fans, although many others have written the genre off as not being rock at all for its LighterAndSofter tone compared to those subgenres that dominated in the 2000s.
** {{Synthpop}}:Returned to the
mainstream as three decades ago, with a minimalist {{New Wave|Music}}-esque style taking over.



** TrapMusic: After being around in the dirty south since TheNineties as a hardcore variation of HipHop, it saw a ''massive'' boom in popularity this decade when artists like Diplo, DJ Snake, Yellow Claw, Flosstradamus, Baauer, and Keys n Krates combined it with EDM. Despite having [[ArtifactTitle little in common]] with the original style of trap by borrowing from Latin genres, it has completely transformed into a form of mainstream music.

** The death of Hugo Chávez, combined with [[UsefulNotes/{{Venezuela}} Venezuela]]'s current economic crisis marks the end of the "pink tide" surge (the popularization of social-democratic, anti-American, and left-leaning politics thanks to Chávez's charisma and the economic boom Venezuela was experiencing) that occurred throughout Latin America during the UsefulNotes/TurnOfTheMillennium.

This is also true on the Latin American countries that were affected by the pink tide, now facing economic hardship and political instability, particularly in Brazil, where President Dilma Rousseff, was impeached out of office in 2016 because of her involvement in a political scandal.

* EnemyMine: Throughout the 2016 election cycle, deep divides between both the Democrats and Republicans grew. Republican factions deeply tore the party. Once the election ended, the deep divide between Democrats vanished overnight, with several people focusing more on opposing Donald Trump and the Republicans than on their internal differences. Republicans also mostly got behind Trump afterwards, offering to support his conservative agenda. However, the GOP has seen some cracks of its own regarding Trump's cozying up to the "alt-right" as well as his alleged attacks on democratic institutions, which have caused rifts between not only between the President and dissenting GOP congressmen, but even with members of his own cabinet. The Republican base generally stood by Trump over the establishment. And in spite of their internal divide, Democrats have shown an impressive unity regarding sexual politics (as Democrats turned against the likes of Harvey Weinstein and John Conyers overnight, while Republicans still defend their alleged sexual predators like Trump and Roy Moore) any and social security, with Bernie Sanders' "Medicare For All" proposal being endorsed in 2017 by even staunchly pro-Wall St. Dems such as NJ Senator Cory Booker.

** "Fad diets" have become immensely popular during the second half of the decade, in particular the so-called "alkaline diet", endorsed by every self-respecting personality, treating the body as a source of energy, powered by "clean eating". Thus, foods with "de-energizing" components such as sugar, gluten, lactose and white flour among others have become no longer acceptable by many people, while erstwhile "exotic" foods such as avocado, quinoa and kale now are commonplace. The "food-fad" trend is not without its critics, as testified by the success of the blog ''The Angry Chef'', which even spawned a book.

** "Closeting" nonetheless is still prevalent among those aiming at older, more conservative audiences. However Creator/JodieFoster and Music/BarryManilow "came out" with little to no controversy (while people were genuinely shocked in the case of Foster, jokes about Manilow's sexuality had been made for decades)... However, Kevin Spacey faced a huge backlash upon his "coming out", which he revealed just after he was accused of molesting actor Anthony Rapp in 1986 when the former was 27 and the latter was just 14.

*** While the Watergate and NSA cases initially drew a big deal of comparisons, their aftermaths were drastically different: Watergate led to the resignation of Nixon and the whistleblowers were hailed as heroes (or at least did it in the name of a greater good). Meanwhile, while Obama was briefly hit by the NSA scandal, its long-term impact was mostly negligible; in contrast, the whistleblowers were ultimately branded as traitors (no less because many attempted to sell data to/seek refuge in countries openly hostile to the U.S. such as Russia and China).

After the 2016 election, liberals complained that mainstream news outlets like CNN and The New York Times were "normalizing" Donald Trump's extreme behavior and have thus flocked over to more unapologetically liberal sources, like MSNBC, the Huffington Post or Slate, or found late-night television and Hollywood celebrities the truth-givers.

** New Year 2017 rang in with an ISIS-backed attack at a Turkish disco, leaving dozens of deaths. There were two vehicular terrorist attacks in London, another in Stockholm, another in Barcelona, another in lower Manhattan, and a bombing at an Music/ArianaGrande concert in Manchester (which was the worst terrorist attack in the UK since 7/7). A disgruntled Bernie Sanders supporter shot a Republican congressman at a ball game. A "white nationalist" rally in Charlottesville led to an anti-racist protester being fatally run over by a car, igniting a political firestorm. Mass shootings occurred at a concert in Las Vegas and a church in Texas, the former of which surpassed the Orlando death toll.
