Sidney Poitier and Stacy Keibler? Oprah Winfrey and Justin Bieber? Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen and that kid that won American Idol 3 years ago? Instagram was blowing up with pictures of majorly odd couplings this week. What’s next, Meryl Streep brings Miley Cyrus to the Oscars next year? Bette Midler joins up with Selena Gomez for a concert tour? Only time and Instagram will tell.
I understand the devastation that comes along with aging in Hollywood. Hollywood icons with Oscars and Grammys under their belts are suddenly getting a little grey around the temples, and suddenly feel the need to stay on top of the latest trends, ingenues, and whatever set of blowfish lips are in style at the moment. I’ve noticed the development of half a crow’s foot around my left eye this year, so obviously I get it. What I don’t get is a.) How the hell these people ended up in the same room with each other, let alone the same iPhone picture; and b.) Larry King is still alive? That’s cool I guess.
Ok, I get it. OWN’s ratings haven’t been stellar and I guess I can admit that Justin Bieber is super popular with tweenage girls and their divorced moms. I’ll let this one slide.
At first I thought that the guy who’s not Bruce Springsteen in this picture was just a lucky concert usher, until I realized it was Kris Allen from American Idol… the guy who beat Adam Lambert a few years ago (thanks, Google). The Boss happens to be coming to my city this weekend, and I know for a fact that the cheapest ticket is over $130 bucks. I think Idol tour tickets are a hundred dollars less than that. Just sayin’.
I honestly don’t know what to make of this next one. I just know that if I ever want to get anywhere in life, I’ve got to be the 2013 Awards Season Girlfriend of George Clooney. I’m sure Mr. Poitier and Ms. Keibler were just catching up on old episodes of WWE Raw.
Hey look, everybody! It’s Betty White and… Nick Cannon. Yeah. Betty White and Nick Cannon. Is she being punished because the entire country is on Betty White overkill? I’m also assuming that his “N” medallion is so large because Betty’s eyesight isn’t what it used to be back in ’24. Discuss.
This is the pis de resistance of “I may be old but I’m hip and cool and totally down with what the youngins are into” of this week’s Celebrity Instagram Creeping. Or maybe Larry King is just asking Taylor Lautner for advice on how to snag Taylor Swift, since he’s probably ready to trade in his 15th wife for a newer model and a #1 song on iTunes.
