Gawd My Generation is Dumb!

Not to repeat too much of my MTV rant, but wow teens these days are focking dumb, and it doesn't bode well for our future if 'we are the future.'
I know it's a small sample size, but I look at my high school as a typical 'suburban high school.' we have our cliques and stuff, and we are pretty diverse socioeconomically.
And we are stupid! Everyone thinks worth is determined by clothes, hair, makeup, etc. And if you try to ignore those things and just live your life the way you think you should, you get demonized for it.
I am a normal girl, I wear makeup on special occasions, I wear respectable clothes that are relatively in-style but not the latest little trends. So don't get me wrong, I'm not Amish or overly nerdy or angry at the entire world.
But how dare I actually value schoolwork and getting good grades over trying to be a barbie doll!?? I, unlike some people at my school, realize that when I'm 25...being the prom queen doesn't mean shit if you fail half your classes.
I just think its stupid that I get made fun of by 'the popular girls' for not showing cleavage all the time or not wanting to spend all my free time at the mall or reading cosmo! Sorry, I'm trying to get into a good college and get a good education so I can get a good job later in life and actually have a successful life.
Then again, in our society it seems like beautiful people who care only about their looks are actually pretty successful...Spears, Hilton, Kardashian, etc.
Again MTV and television in general I guess, instills these values in kids today and it's not good. Boys just don't seem to be attracted to girls who have smarts or musical talent or artistic talent, etc. only which girl is hottest!!!
Sorry, didn't mean to rant. But I had bad day cuz the guy I like at school sort of picked the stereotypical 'cheerleader' type over me...
I know there are plenty of cheerleaders, football players, etc. that are perfectly nice and actually do have intelligence...but it doesnt feel like that number is very high...
