How? Why? Huh?
I continue to be completely baffled by the Olsen Twins. I mean, yeah, they were cute on Full House and they were still cute well into their preteen years. You know, back when they acted their age, occasionally ate a sandwich, and let someone else dress them. But somewhere in the intervening years, they just became freaks. Puberty was not kind to them.
And now, they are "style icons," a term that I put absolutely no stock in, because that generally translates to an overpaid cokewhore wearing mismatched, ill-fitting overpriced rags that most of us are sober enough to realize look like crap. Who actually wants to look like these women?
Apparently somebody does, because the Olsen Freaks are in a new ad campaign:
Do you want to spend tens of thousands of dollars to look like 12-year-old vampires on crack?*
Kudos, though, to whomever fiddled with the perspective so that they don't look like the dwarves they are.
And speaking of freaks, the Best Week Ever Blog has a fantasy smackdown between two more Celebs I Can't Stand: Tom and Oprah.
*Okay, I'm digging the blue dress, even if Mary Kate does look like an 8-year-old who's been locked in her mother's closet for a month and decided to try some things on. And what is with those extensions? Gah!
