How Many Jumpsuits Is Too Many Jumpsuits? Uh… Asking For A Friend.

As I clicked to purchase my latest billowy, featureless set of full-body pants, I realized that I may have a problem. Or my closet does. In that it’s full of fucking jumpsuits.

I’m no fashionista. I thrift like a fiend, but not for those one-of-a-kind risky vintage pieces I imagine Chloë Sevigny digging through racks for. I wish that was me, but I don’t really have a «style» (interesting or otherwise) and instead I usually look for the kinds of vaguely name-brand shit I refuse to pay top dollar for new. Otherwise I wait for stores to put their sale stuff on double sale and then buy whatever is left in my size.

All of which is to say that I don’t really follow, or even comprehend, trends. The closest I ever got to being on-trend was buying a pair of knee-high fake biker boots out of a Delia*s catalog in the late 90s. And then jumpsuits made their resurgence. It started, oh I don’t know, a few years ago? I definitely wasn’t paying attention, and then I started seeing all these pretty ladies flouncing down the New York City sidewalks in glorified onesies. And I hated them (the jumpsuits, not the ladies — I’m not THAT judgmental. Usually.).






So I certainly didn’t hop on the bandwagon from the start. As is my usual M.O., I joined well after the craze had hit it’s peak. Because that’s when the shit goes on sale (duh), and by then you’ve witnessed so many people wearing so many ridiculous getups that you forget it ever seemed weird in the first place. Except rompers. I don’t do rompers, they still just look weird. Splitting hairs, but as the great Lin-Manuel Miranda sang, «If you stand for nothing, Burr, what’ll you fall for?»

I wish I could say that once I tried on a jumpsuit, I understood the fascination. Logically, on paper, it all makes sense — they combine the throw-on-one-thing-and-you’re-done ease of a dress with the versatile comfort of pants. In reality, however, they are a nightmare. Finding the right size is an exercise in sheer luck. The torso is too short, or too long! The crotch rides or drags! The ass pouches or wedges in your crack, and you can’t do anything about it!

(In retrospect, this may be why I have stockpiled so many jumpsuits over the years. Once I find one that does, miraculously, fit my frame, I feel compelled to purchase it for posterity. Like a me-sized jumpsuit is some weird object of intrigue that I must collect and display to prove it actually exists.)

The other problem with jumpsuits isn’t noticeable in the store. You won’t discover it until you buy it, take it home, and then try to wear it for a full day. The problem? Bathrooms.

With pants, you pull them down. With dresses, you hike them up. With a skirt, it’s dealer’s choice. But with a jumpsuit, YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT ALMOST COMPLETELY OFF. That’s right, you have to get naked every time nature calls. Have you ever gotten naked in a public bathroom stall, squatting over a toilet and trying to keep a full body’s-length of clothing off the filthy bathroom floor? Welcome to the joys of the jumpsuit.






Maybe I just get off on misery, but naked bathroom sessions be damned, I kept on buying fucking jumpsuits. Baggy hippie ones that look like a human parachute. Fancy, flowing ones that basically look like dresses anyway so what’s the point? I even own two denim jumpsuits. Two. Which means at some point in my life I consciously made the decision that owning one denim jumpsuit wasn’t enough. In total, I think I own an astounding nine — with one more on the way. No amount of discounts and deals can justify this. It’s utterly absurd. I think I own more jumpsuits than underwear. I’m a monster.

This has been my confession to a hideous crime against fashion, logic, decency, humanity, and my own sense of self.

A Ranting Alex Jones Is Asking that His Megyn Kelly Interview Not Air on Father’s Day

This is my new favorite thing today!

Sarah went to Gwynnie’s Wellness (with a capital «W») retreat, «In Goop Health» (no, seriously, that’s what it’s called) and in addition to a bag of $ 85 rocks, she got to experience Goop. — (Lainey)

Megyn Kelly’s new NBC newsmagazine is not making friends with either side of the political spectrum. The left is furious that Kelly and NBC would give a platform to Sandy Hook truther Alex Jones (and at least one advertiser, JP Morgan, has pulled their ads for the episode), while Alex Jones is also pissed, calling Kelly «cold and robotic» and claiming that the interview is a «hit piece trying to destroy independent media» that make fathers look bad, which is why he doesn’t want it to air on Father’s Day. (Also, because Alex Jones is terrible father). (Uproxx)

If you missed the Tony Awards last night, you might have missed the orchestra trying to play Bette Midler off. Hahahahaha. You don’t tell Bette when she’s finished speaking. Bette finishes when she’s damn good and ready. — (Dlisted)

Amanda Bynes is back and sober and ready to work, and I just love her so much, I hope she’s happy and feeling good! I also hope she does another movie with Charming Potato because I would buy it and watch it over and over even though my husband would say, «Are you seriously watching this stupid movie again? Is this supposed to be funny? I don’t get it.» HYPOTHETICALLY. — (Celebitchy)

Jessica Chastain got married over the weekend and she looked just lovely! But really? What the shit was Anne Hathaway wearing? — (LG)

Have you watched Curtis Hanson’s film L.A. Confidential? Bea Pants is here to tell you that compared to James Ellroy’s book L.A. Confidential, Hanson’s movie is the happy parts of a Pixar movie. Elroy’s Los Angeles is "dark, mean and merciless." Though not for the faint hearted, L.A. Confidential is a smartly written book. (Cannonball Read 9)

Why You Shouldn’t Even Think About Asking the Royal Family For Autographs (or Selfies)

We’re sorry to disappoint you, but if you ever get the chance to meet a member of the British royal family, please don’t ask for an autograph. Not only is it a breech of royal protocol, but their likely response will be, «Sorry, they don’t allow me to do that.» Unlike celebrities, royals cannot afford to have their signature forged and possibly used against them at a later point. They may sign visitors books or official documents, but autographs never. Back in 2010, Prince Charles surprised everyone when he broke protocol to sign an autograph for victims of the Cornwall floods. While meeting with a couple, he was asked, «Can I be really cheeky please Sir and can I have your autograph for my young son Tom? I’m not sure if you do autographs but it would make his day?» Charles then shocked his bodyguards when he asked one of them to find a piece of paper for him to sign. He wrote «Charles 2010» and even apologized for the «shaky writing» because he «never writes standing up.»

And if you thought you could get away with a selfie, think again. Those same rules apply to selfies. In fact, Prince Harry isn’t even a fan of them. While visiting the Australian War Memorial back in 2015, a young fan waiting among the crowd asked the young royal for a selfie, to which he replied, «No, I hate selfies. Seriously, you need to get out of it. I know you’re young, but selfies are bad.» He then made up for it by asking her to simply take a normal photo of him.

Maybe It’s Time to Stop Asking Goldie Hawn Why She Hasn’t Married Kurt Russell

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell first met while starring in 1968’s The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band, but it wasn’t until 1983 that they began dating while working on their second joint film, Swing Shift. The couple recently rang in their 34th anniversary, an incredible feat for any couple but especially one made up of Hollywood A-listers. But what is particularly unique about Kurt and Goldie’s relationship is the fact that they aren’t married. Over their three decades together, they haven’t felt the need to «make it official,» and it’s something that still seems to both fascinate and perplex the public.


«A lasting relationship isn’t about marriage. It’s about compatibility and communication

It feels like in nearly every interview Goldie does with a major publication, she is asked about her choice not to marry Kurt. Despite the fact that she has made her reasons painfully clear over the years, Goldie is still bombarded with questions about how she could so bravely stay in a relationship with a man and have the audacity not to enter into a legally recognized union that has a large chance of ending in divorce. Like, how dare she?! Goldie has answered these questions with aplomb because she’s Goldie f*cking Hawn, but it might officially be time to maybe trust that she knows what she’s doing in her own relationship and accept that maybe their arrangement isn’t that hard to wrap a head around. Goldie certainly isn’t the first celebrity to eschew marriage in favor of a more modern, independent romantic lifestyle, and we should stop acting like it’s some wacky concept.


«There’s something psychological about not being married because it gives you the freedom to make decisions one way or the other. For me, I chose to stay, Kurt chose to stay, and we like the choice

What’s worth noting is that being a woman with 50 years in the entertainment business, a woman who scored a spot in the The Nutcracker at 10 years old, opened her own ballet academy, and founded a charity dedicated to improving the academic lives of young kids, should warrant some more interesting, thought-provoking questions than why she hasn’t felt the need to marry a man who she has been in a committed relationship with since many of us were in diapers, a man with whom she has built a beautiful family and a complete life full of love, understanding, respect, «fun, laughs, and sex


«The question is, ‘Why (get married)?’ it’s not, ‘Why not?’ We love each other. We fight the way people are supposed to fight. We love our lives together.»

The societal pressure to get married is everywhere and usually focused on women. Getting hitched is touted as the ultimate goal for us ladies, which could explain why we rarely hear about Kurt Russell being asked these types of questions — for some reason it falls on Goldie to constantly explain their joint decision to enjoy life without a marriage license. But instead of putting the emphasis on Why haven’t you guys gotten married? we should shift the conversation to include more questions about their commitment to keeping things fresh after 34 years, helping their children become Hollywood stars in their own right, and staying fly as hell on the red carpet. After all, not being married might actually be the biggest «secret» to Goldie and Kurt’s relationship success — so can’t we just celebrate it?

Who Worked It Better? (I Can’t Believe I’m Asking Either) 

katyperrylydiadeetz

I mean, the only correct answer is: Lydia Deetz, forever and always.

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it would look like if Aunt Flow was a human person and dropped the wrong kind of acid while shopping for the wedding look she plans on wearing while marrying Johnny 5 from Short Circuit, Katy Perry answered that question at tonight’s Meth Gala. The theme for this year’s Met Gala is Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons, and I don’t know if “WiFi-enabled overused lace tampon” fits that theme, but if it does, then Katy Perry nailed it. It’s as if Susan Powter was possessed by the spirit of Lady Gaga and I honestly don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

Katy wore a custom John Galliano for Margiela, so yeah, trick is on a roll. Katy Perry is supposed to be fully woke. But well, first she does a song with a hip hop trio who spewed out anti-gay shit. Then she dribbled out an Obama joke that made people scalp her head of the little hair she has left. And now she’s wearing an outfit made by a designer who was convicted of anti-Semitism in France. I expect to wake up tomorrow to the news that Katy has signed on to play Pocahontas in a movie that was written by Woody Allen, will be directed by Roman Polanski and co-stars Mel Gibson. Either Katy has decided to say “fuck it” to Woke Katy and is trolling, or Taylor Swift’s black magic curse on her rival worked!

Blake Lively Goes In on Reporter For Asking About Fashion: «Would You Ask a Man That?»


Blake Lively attended Variety‘s Power of Women Luncheon in NYC on Friday, where she was being honored alongside other women like Jessica Chastain and Audra McDonald for their contributions to worthy causes. While hitting the red carpet in an emerald jumpsuit, Blake made her way down the line of eager reporters hungry for a soundbite. Unfortunately for one of them, they got way more than they bargained for when they asked her a fashion-centric question. «Are we really doing this? Would you ask a man that?» Blake responded, according to USA Today digital editor Maeve McDermott, who caught the last bit of their exchange on video. «. . . That is the moment that we become more aware, and that we change, and that we build women up. So, you can ask me another question, but . . .»

It’s unfair to make judgments about either party without knowing what the exact question was since the short clip starts after it was asked, but it was enough to get the Shallows actress visibly angry before she walked away. Blake is known for her style prowess, so it makes sense that a reporter would ask her something related to fashion, but her complaint is a valid one regardless. It clearly echoes the incredible #AskHerMore campaign, which «inspires people to call out sexist reporting and suggest ways to re-focus on women’s achievements.» Of all the places to ask an actress about something other than what she’s wearing, an event dedicated to the «power of women» who are making a serious difference in the world is a no-brainer.

Pacman Jones Chews Out Reporter For Asking “Stupid Ass Questions”

We have two stories up on Pacman Jones this offseason, and judging from the headlines, they aren’t what you want to see as a Bengals fan — “Pacman Jones to Cop: Suck My D—k… Hope You Die Tomorrow” and “Pacman Jones Took $ 160,000 in Cash for Spring Break.” Yeah, you’d assume Pacman would be out of Cinci after that offseason circus, but the Bengals decided to keep him on board. (Hell, Mike Brown even publicly supported the guy.)

Reporters were able to question Pacman for the first time since his arrest today at voluntary workouts, and everything went swimmingly… until a reporter pissed him off by asking if he had to prove himself to fans.

Details from The Dayton Daily News:

“Didn’t I just tell you don’t ask me that?” Jones said. “You out the (interview). Turn around. Go back that way. See you. Next question. That’s his last interview for the year.”

The reporter complied, but Jones, who reportedly was taking anger management classes in wake of his arrest, continued to berate the reporter, who had walked away from his locker, while walking to the restroom after ending the interview, yelling at him for asking “stupid ass (expletive) questions.”

Jones continued after returning for the restroom, telling the reporter to “shut the (expletive) up.

So those anger management classes seemed to be a colossal waste of time.

Ty Lawson Got Sick After Asking Fans For A ‘Bomb’ Taco Spot

screen-shot-2017-03-02-at-9-23-51-am

When you’re on the road, asking fans for a restaurant recommendation probably isn’t the best idea. Everybody remembers Jordan’s flu game that wasn’t actually the flu and most likely some poisoned room service (or a crippling hangover). You’re taking a major risk doing this.

But that doesn’t apply here. Ty Lawson plays for the Kings and asked the good people of Sacramento for a ‘bomb’ taco spot for taco Tuesday. No harm in that because the Sacramentans should treat him right. Turns out, it didn’t matter. He got his recommendation and still got the mud butt.

Pre-bubble guts.

Ty was able to weather the storm and still play

Had himself a decent game, too.
