Emma Roberts Walking Around Shoeless Makes Me Wonder What She’s Really All About

I’m bursting at the seams right now with all my questions about Emma Roberts. She emerged on the scene a few years ago as Julia Robert’s niece, played Cruella De Vil’s wayward niece in the not-nominated film Hotel for Dogs and then showed up at Coachella this year looking like she got dressed in a lost and found container. And now, to add mystery to already growing mystique, she got photographed this weekend walking around outside without shoes. Just socks. Probably dirty, dirty socks.

Who is Emma Roberts and what is her deal? (I hope you read that in John Stossel’s voice, because that’s how I heard it in my head.)

I thought that perhaps we can all put our heads together and try to figure this out as a team. Because, here’s the thing. She’s not famous enough to justify this weird behavior. We let Britney Spears walk around gas stations barefoot because she’s Britney Spears. But Emma Roberts barely has name recognition outside of the 12-24 year old crowd. Sure that demographic fact’s completely made up, but seriously call your parents right now and say “I just saw Emma Roberts” and let me know if they don’t respond with, “that’s nice dear, it’s always fun to run into friends from grade school.”

Do we think she just does a lot of drugs? Or is it something even more exciting?! Like she’s a Russian spy trying hard to fit it in the “Hollywood scene?”

Or less exciting, like she’s quirky? Rather than continue to concoct ridiculous Russian spy theories, I’d like to throw it out to you, our wonderful mystery-loving readers.

What do YOU think about Emma Roberts and can you decipher her deal?

    I have no idea what’s wrong with Emma Roberts. She seems… confused? But I do know that I used to have nightmares where I was walking around, like at school or work, without any shoes and it was really weird. Like I felt super exposed walking around without anything on my feet. It was my version of the “naked at your school assembly” dream.

    Maybe Roberts was sleep-walking…

      Do you think celebrity “sleep walking” could be the new celebrity “exhaustion”

    • Lindsay Cross

      I think that if I were a celebrity I would definitely claim that I was sleepwalking anytime I did something idiotic.

    She broke up with her long time boyfriend/baby daddy…then he killed himself.

    • Jenni Maier

      I don’t think she has a baby, so that’s probably not it.

    • Carly

      She has 2 kids actually…a 3 yr old and a newborn…and check out her twitter from yesterday

    • Jenni Maier

      I think you’re thinking of a different Emma Roberts…this one is the 19 year old niece of Julia Roberts.

    • Carly

      Actually…she turned 21 a few months ago…and it is exactly who I am talking about. Like I said, take a look at her twitter.

    • Jenni Maier

      Sorry, I did get the age wrong. What is her Twitter handle? I can’t find a confirmed one to check.

    • Carly

      robertsemma0210…do some research and I bet you will find a few more interesting gems about this family

    • Jenni Maier

      That’s an unconfirmed Twitter…
