According to GQ, boot-cut jeans are all set for a major comeback, and we have no idea how we're feeling right now tbh. People have thoughts… bad thoughts…
Over a decade ago, both men and women were wearing flared-style jeans 24/7, and boot-cut denim officially hit the mainstream. This was a time where even the ugliest items were considered fashion, e.g. Ed Hardy and Von Dutch.
That being said, who are we to judge? Our era is one of UGG boots, the dreaded 'athleisure' (tracksuits and sports leggings as fashion) and jeans with cut outs just below the booty area.
It's not hard to see why Gvasalia may have chosen the current designer climate to resurrect the style of denim, 2018 has seen a total pants revolution within menswear especially.
Contemporary cargo pants, pleated trousers and blinged-up chinos are proving that men are willing to step out of their couture comfort zone.
Gvasalia is the major designer who has elevated the bulky dad sneaker into a high-fashion item, so if anyone is capable of reviving the trend and somehow making it less of a faux pas, it's this talented man.
She tweeted a thread about the type of questions her husband gets asked in interviews, and it just seems like some MAD double standards to us;
"I feel like a very common question when interviewing john is basically “how do you deal with your wife” and … I don’t love it." We wouldn't love it either, because she would never get asked how she deals with John.
She elaborated on the question and how she feels about it, and it's relatable as always.
It happens a lot. “does she ask you if certain things are okay to say?” …it’s just very weird to me.
"No. He doesn’t. I don’t care. and he doesn’t care. End of question." she tweeted, continuing the thread. Shut that sh*t down, Chrissy. Asking how you "deal" with your wife implies that she's difficult to live with, and causes hassle in his career.
Chrissy has her own illustrious career, and yet never gets asked the same question about her husband.
he usually does the standard “no…she knows what she’s doing…” but it’s not even that. It’s just that I am a different human than him? It is theeeee most common question with him. Please stop.
"He usually does the standard “No…she knows what she’s doing…” but it’s not even that. It’s just that I am a different human than him? It is the most common question with him. Please stop."
Rightfully so, Chrissy said John usually shuts the question down fairly easily, but emphasised that she's actually a different person than him with her own life and goals, who isn't just tied to him while he goes out and earns.
I’m not mad at anyone who has asked this. I get that we are very different. It happens a lot though and I’m just not very into it. You don’t ask me how I deal with watching msnbc every night or what I do while he’s silent for a week
"I’m not mad at anyone who has asked this. I get that we are very different. It happens a lot though and I’m just not very into it. You don’t ask me how I deal with watching MSNBC every night or what I do while he’s silent for a week."
Damn straight, Chrissy. They're basically implying that she's mouthy and loud and controls the voice in the household, and how does he COPE with that as a husband?
Teigen isn't afraid of using her social media platform and sharing her opinions on mum-shaming, body-shaming, IVF, postpartum depression and the political situation in America right now.
“How do you tolerate this mouthy broad you married?”
By asking John Legend but not Teigen about his coping mechanisms when it comes to his partner, the basic tone of the question is that it must be a hardship to be married to an outspoken woman, we think.
*Eye roll* The man has an EGOT (An Emmy, several Grammys, an Oscar and a Tony) and THAT'S the most common question he gets asked? How does it feel being married to an opinionated and thoughtful lady?
We can think of far more complex things to ask the hugely successful musician, to be honest, that don't involve the notion of a woman using her voice for empowerment. They're separate humans with separate careers, people.
We learn a thing or two about John Legend in the post; his favourite bed-time lullaby is Say A Little Prayer, and his favourite bed-time story is the political news programme The Rachel Maddow Show. Very niche for a baby…
He doesn't like beets and bad grammar, and he loves music, peanut butter and his family. How pure.
Hilariously, Chrissy also included the amount of teeth he had, his height in inches, and his weight. The 40-year-old Ordinary People singer looks absolutely chuffed with himself either way, so that's a nice milestone right there.
Now first of all, we ain't here to promote keyboard warriors or viciously cruel groups online who tear people down for the craic. No, that's not our style.
However, the art of trolling must be respected at all costs, especially from a nation as sarcastic and exceptional at 'slagging' such as Ireland.
From Waterford Whisperers embodying the Ultimate Irish Trolling Association, to the current troll of the day; the egg that stole Kylie Jenner's record for most likes on an Instagram photos, here's a round-up of our favourite savage moments in pop culture.
Ready yourself for wigs being hilariously snatched and thrown into the wind, it's a bumpy ride of burns and teasing gone too far.
1. Waterford Whisperers trolling Westlife's new song, Hello My Love:
The vast majority of people were ECSTATIC when Westlife announced their comeback; their Twenty Tour sold 400,000 tickets in under 48 hours for God's sake.
Not everyone was over the moon about Ireland's premier boyband reuniting however, with Waterford Whisperers delivering a vicious burn that has us in stitches.
"Helplines are now fielding calls from thousands of stricken people after the release of the first new Westlife single in over eight years," the article states.
"Penned by Ed Sheeran for maximum disruption, the track caused nausea, hysterics and uncontrollable weeping for one in every seven listeners, and emergency call centres have stated that they are receiving one call every nine seconds which consists solely of someone screaming “fuuuuuuuuuck”."
As savage as it is towards the national heroes we call Westlife, we were laughing for a solid twenty minutes at this one.
2.Lovinkiara's artistic flare
If you haven't seen last year's Twitter thread that featured @lovinkiara taking drawing requests, and delivering some…interest…results, you've missed out.
She became somewhat of a hero among trolls after uploaded a tweet that supposedly depicted her talanted artistic capabilities:
Iconic trolling Kiara, carry on dear daughter of the troll.
3. Justin Bieber heads to…North Korea?!
A website asked its users to choose the next country which Justin Bieber would visit on his My World tour, and the answer wasn't exactly conventional. Let's just say he wasn't rushing to grab his passport anytime soon…
Yup, the Biebs himself (babyface Biebs at that stage in his career… and arguably in his current stage too…) was instructed to visit NORTH KOREA.
What's even more amusing/horrifying, North Korea received an insane 659,448 votes. Dear God, that's the size of a country. It's more than the population of Iceland, let that sink in…
4. M Night School Hoax
M. Night Shyamalan is a relatively renowned film director, known for creating iconic scary movies such as The Sixth Sense, The Happening, Split, The Last Airbender, Signs and The Village.
While many claim that his films are hit-and-miss, with some achieving critical acclaim and box office success, others have royally bombed. Someone eventually took it upon themselves to crowdfund to send him back to film school.
Named The M. Night School, the creator worked out that if 150,000 people donated one dollar each, they could donate enough cash for the director to be put through film school once again at NYU.
The ruthless trolling of the director rages on today… who knows if he's become immune to it at this stage or if he cries himself to sleep every M. Night?
5. Ed Sheeran's head of security
@SecurityKev became a smash hit star as Ed Sheeran's GAS head of security, and who even got the catchphrase; "Always. Watching" for his consistent background lurking.
It's iconic, he even calls Ed 'bae', throwing in a 'Who's the Daddy' at the most random of moments. His internet fame has earned him a huge 963,000 Instagram followers who watch his every move, ironically;
The R&B and soul singer was one of few celebrities to appear in the Surviving R Kelly documentary, with stars such as Jay Z, Mary J Blige and Lady Gaga declining to appear.
While John Legend was applauded for speaking out against notorious sex predator Kelly in the Lifetime docu-series, which recounts the multiple abuse claims the musician has faced over the last three decades.
To everyone telling me how courageous I am for appearing in the doc, it didn't feel risky at all. I believe these women and don't give a fuck about protecting a serial child rapist. Easy decision.
While appearing in the documentary was of monumental importance, Legend has now landed himself in hot water.
Fans were surprised to see a resurfaced photo of the 40-year-old and his wife happily posing for a photo with Harvey at the Sundance Film Festival in 2016, only a few months before the #MeToo movement took off.
The infamous 66-year-old movie mogul at the heart of the #MeToo movement is currently awaiting trial in New York on a number of related sexual assault and rape charges.
The All Of Me singer was forced to defend himself, writing a response to his Twitter followers;
I took a photo with and worked with Harvey on several occasions before his abuse was known to me and the rest of the world. Since his being exposed, his company and career have rightfully been destroyed and he's been indicted. Sounds like something that should happen to R Kelly https://t.co/LgIOQpEnsP
That being said, allegedly Harvey Weinstein's abuse was widely known throughout the entire entertainment industry for decades, so we find it difficult to believe that he had no clue what the movie producer was capable of.
What's your stance, do you think the image is important, or should the focus be on listening to the voices of R Kelly's victims and speaking out against enablers?
Continuing the heartfelt post, John spoke about his darling wife Chrissy Teigen. He shared: “Chrissy is the superstar I always knew her to be. I'm happy that more and more people around the world are realizing this too.”
John also mentioned his career highlights, including the EGOT, his Christmas album and working on Jesus Christ Superstar, but there’s no doubt the time spent with his family trumped all of these moments.
“Thank you to all my collaborators, friends, fans and family who made my 40th year so memorable. I love you all. Have a wonderful 2019,” the Love Me Now singer concluded.
If anyone needs us we’ll be sobbing for the foreseeable future. John’s love for his family is infectious.
Chrissy Teigen is the latest celebrity to have been essentially CANCELLED online, after offensive tweets from back in 2010 and 2011 surfaced which say some pretty dodgy stuff about self-harm, Lindsey Lohan and trans people.
The tweets have been met with outrage on the internet, with Twitter users getting the hashtag #ChrissyTeigenIsOverParty trending almost instantaneously.
The comments are from roughly eight years ago, but they reference the appearances of celebrities such as Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga and in particular Lindsay Lohan.
I cannot wait to show up in court with john to fight this shit. @lindsaylohan what should I wear, you're the expert. Help.
The palette features 18 stunning 'toppings' to choose from, and colours to match. The names range from earthy emerald shades of 'Basil' to the shimmery gold of 'Pineapple', and even metallic purple 'Red Onions'.
This woman is a genius. The product has also been JEFFREE STAR APPROVED, which is no easy feat.
Starting with some spicy humour, John introduced himself as a “trophy husband.”
But he quickly turned his attention to Chrissy, describing her as a star and the “heart and soul of the family”.
"I am very much in love with this woman…But I’m not the only one who loves her. Many millions of people who aren’t married or related to her love her too," he confessed to the crowd.
“Everywhere I go, I meet people, fans, who used to ask me for an autograph or tell me how much they love my music. Now, the number one comment I get from people who used to be my fans is how much they love Chrissy. She gets bigger cheers than I do at my own concerts. They love her," he added.
The 39-year-old couldn't finish up his speech without mentioning Chrissy's bad*ss online presences.
He said: “I think the world may have missed out on Chrissy’s full awesomeness if it weren’t for social media. She would have never fully shone the way she does if she were filtered by publicists and handlers.
“Chrissy’s biggest impact may be the way she proves that just by being the person you are, you can make a difference. Being who you are, unapologetically, you can make a difference.”
“I am amazed by the woman that you’ve become. And I’m truly glad that the rest of the world has finally found out about it, too,” he finished.
