“I’m pretty amazed by Hello Kitty. I see so many women in their 30s walking around in Hello Kitty shit and nobody is concerned for them. It’s the one iconic teenage symbol that seems okay for women in their 30s? The world seems to not have an issue with it.”
Charlize Theron reveals that if you’re an adult in a Hello Kitty shirt, you’re not ok.
I was going to say that she’s being really judgey here, but I actually kind of get where Charlize is coming from on this one. See, here in the South, and you other Southern people can back me up on this one or else alert me that this is a more national trend, people are really into Looney Tunes. I can’t tell you how many grown ass women I’ve seen in a Tweety Bird shirt, and I’ve honestly seen more than one person with a tattoo of that Tasmanian Devil. I don’t get it, I really, really don’t.
But what do you guys think? Does Charlize need to back off, or do you think there’s something a little off about adults obsessed with things like Hello Kitty?
Here is a sad admission: I DON’T LAUGH THAT OFTEN. But this? This Saturday Night Live sketch from last night’s episode? Oh, I belly-laughed. I may have even guffawed. It was terrible, and I’m sorry. Except for, Kris Jenner is kind of the worst ever, and boy oh boy, did I laugh at Kristen Wiig’s version of Kris Jenner. Meanwhile, Andy Samberg’s limited talents (sorry!) were perfectly utilized in his portrayal of Kris Humphries. Oh, my God, and then Taran Killam as Bruce Jenner. Oh, my God. Just watch. (Charlie Day hosted.)
No, I do feel bad for laughing. I feel awful, actually: Kim Kardashian has reportedly flown to Minnesota to love-tackle (that’s a basketball term, right?) estranged husband Kris Humphries. Kim feels she was brash in ditching her husband of 72 days, evidently, and while this doesn’t signal a real reconciliation, I’m actually relieved that Kim is at least sort of trying.
