Is Hot Topic Still Considered Goth? (VIDEO)

Remember when Hot Topic used to epitomize goth culture? Lauren Anderson, an employee at Gothic Renaissance in New York and a self-proclaimed Goth, joined HuffPost Live and explained why this just isn't the case anymore.

"Now a days ... it's what's hot. You'll find Lil Wayne t-shirts there and Bieber," Anderson told host Ricky Camilleri. "You can't get a Manson shirt there, that surprised me."

But the goth community doesn't seem to be letting go of it any time soon, even if for nostalgia's sake. "You see how we all keep tabs on it though," Lauren admitted.
