Yeah, that's a thing.
It totally is a thing, but it's not always silly. There really is a lot of shitty, watered down crap in the mainstream media, so it can make a certain type of sense to filter things that way.

Also, FOURTEEN. Adolescence is really hard and really weird. That's when you start trying to figure out in earnest what sort of a grownup you're going to be, and noticing a whole lot of things about the world that are nonsensical and stupid and evil. So it is very normal for a kid that age to reject things just because they are popular, and maybe try to carve out some sort of outsider persona. I'd argue that it's actually a good thing because it means she's observant. Stuff really does suck.
