OG Red Wiggle Murray Cook Tells Us What He Thinks Of That Lil Nas X Collab

Get him a skivvy, it's gonna happen.

ICYMI, the Internet practically imploded earlier this week when Lil Nas X tweeted a pic of himself photoshopped with the OG Wiggles.

Lil Nas captioned the mock single cover for ‘Rodeo Remix,’ “y’all ready?” sending his and The Wiggles’ combined fandom into an absolute tailspin.

Listen to Murray spill the tea on the Lil Nas X collab and his other famous friends on the latest ep of It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

Just when we thought the hottest collab of 2020 was about to drop, The Wiggles chimed in and said “we have no idea what is going on but this is greatest.” 

So, instead of speculating, the GOAT team managed to get OG red Wiggle Murray Cook on the blower for a good old fashioned chinwag.

Speaking about Lil Nas X’s tweet, Murray said, “The first I knew was people retweeting and talking about. But we’re always open to new things.”

One thing that brings Lil Nas X and The Wiggles together is their love of genre bending. “One of the great things of doing The Wiggles was we did do lots of sorts of different music – you’re not tied to genres like other acts. One of our goals was to expose children to lots of different music.”

During our chat with Murray, he also spoke about The Wiggles previous collabs which have included everyone from Kylie Minogue to Shaquille O’Neal. As for Murray’s fave, it’s John Fogerty from Creedence Clearwater Revival. “He’s in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. To play with him was a real dream come true.”

The OG red Wiggle also spoke about how important it is for kids to express themselves creatively and why Sydney should be kept open for the sake of young musicians. 

“I had a lot of people in bands say they got into music because of The Wiggles,” he said. “That’s just really rewarding. It’s really important for our culture to keep live music alive.”

Sounds like Murray and his fellow skivvy enthusiasts are more than up for a collab with Lil Nas X, so watch this space.

Oh, and as for what skivvy Lil Nas would we wearing, Murray says most definitely “pink.”

Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
