Dad Jeans Are Making A Comeback, You Didn’t Know They’d Ever Disappeared

dad jeans trend piece

Most of us who have dads are probably familiar with the concept of dad jeans, those super cool, light-washed, high-waisted jeans dads love to buy at JC Penney’s. My dad loves some Dad Jeans — his favorite varietal is a gently faded black jean that goes great with his plaid shirt of choice and an anonymous black shoe. And then there’s Dad Jeans in popular culture: Jerry Seinfeld, Tim Taylor from “Home Improvement” (worn with smug smile), or Louis C.K., an actual dad who is also a nerdy, funny, middle-aged man.

Suddenly, Dad Jeans Are A Thing, a thing worth writing about in the New York Times Style section. The renewed interest in Dad Jeans is probably attributable to one thing — the ever-snarling Ouroboros that is fashion. It’s so uncool, say Dad Jeans advocates, that it is suddenly Coolness Ground Zero and how could you ever not want to wear Dad Jeans, you cool-as-fuck hipster? Keep reading »

Jerry Seinfeld Performs A “Comic Intervention” On Jon Stewart

Everyone in the media has been scratching their heads on how to write about Rep. Michele Bachmann‘s bigotry towards gays and her husband Marcus Bachmann’s work “treating” gays in so-called “ex-gay therapy.” He apparently said gay people are “barbarians” that need to be “educated” and “disciplined.” Do we report this as straight news? Blow a gasket over how cruel and dehumanizing they are? Even Jon Stewart struggled with how to report on Marcus Bachmann on last night’s episode of “The Daily Show.” That’s when Jerry Seinfeld came to the rescue and prescribed a spoonful of “ex-comic therapy.”

Celebs Who Endorse Donald Trump For President — And The Ones Who Don’t

If Donald Trump seriously runs for president (which I don’t think will happen, but still) and gets so much as one single vote in the primaries, I am moving to Canada. No ifs, ands or buts about it. The man who popularized frou-frou pompadours on men, trashy divorces, and the phrase “You’re fired!” is like a one-man encyclopedia entry for the phrase “ugly American.”

Whaddya know, a lot of celebs agree with me: Susan Sarandon, Cher, Tracy Morgan. And then there are the yokels who would actually “Vote Trump!” And there’s quite a few of them… Keep reading »

The Seinfelds’ New TV Show Idea Is Kind Of Genius

Jerry Seinfeld, the man who first made you aware of Close Talkers and those who are Sponge-worthy, has a new television show in the works. It’s called “The Marriage Ref,” and it’s going to at least be as good as “Conveyor Belt of Love,” if not a degree better. Here’s the concept: A camera crew goes to the home of a fighting couple, where both parties present their case. The footage is beamed to an in-studio panel of celebrities—Tina Fey, Charles Barkley, Alec Baldwin, and Larry David have all signed on—who debate the issue. Then comedian Tom Papa, who is the titular Marriage Ref, makes a final decision, which the couple has to stick to. The show is actually the brainchild of Seinfeld’s wife, Jessica—the idea was hatched when she and Jerry tried to help a friend sort out a fight she was having with her husband over dinner. “Sports simplicity is what’s missing in marriage,” Seinfeld says. “Experts are helpful. But that’s not our thing.” The show will be coming at you on Feb. 28, and part of me is hoping to get married by then so I can get into a fight and get Tina Fey to back me up on national television. Guess I should probably start dating someone soon then, no? [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Sienna Miller And Other Celebs Who’ve Lost it During Interviews

Sienna Miller is usually as calm and composed as any good American-born British actress should be. But last week, during an interview with Australian DJ Adam Richard where he kept prodding her about her co-star/lovah, married-man Balthazar Getty, Sienna lost it. “Oh piss off,” she said. “Honestly, we’re here to talk about a film. You scad, bitches.” Listen to the interview here.

And now check out these other celebs, who all went a tad ballistic during interviews. Keep reading »
