Not Even A Great K-pop Group Like GOT7 Can Make Double Denim Cool Again

Can we just bin that look for good, please?

It’s probably an understatement to say that GOT7 are a good looking bunch of chaps. Hell, if they can make bucket hats look cool, they can pull off any outfit. Well, almost. That’s because even this great K-pop group can’t pull off the most controversial of all looks in fashion: double denim.

The only reaction to double denim.

Okay, let’s rewind a bit first.

GOT7 performed their first ever Australian concert in Sydney on August 22, 2019, as part of their Keep Spinning World Tour and the boys showed just why they’re one of the hottest K-pop groups at the moment.

JB, Mark, Jackson, Jinyoung, Youngjae, BamBam, and Yugyeom all had the thousands of fans packed into Qudos Bank Arena eating out of their hand from minute one thanks to their intense choreography and willingness to go all in on the performances.

It was a surprise no one pulled a hamstring or strained a vocal chord at how hard they were going over the course of their two and a half hour set.

The septet have gained a reputation for putting on great live shows since their 2014 debut and they’ve only gotten better with age. There wasn’t going to be a major surprise regarding the setlist so GOT7 kept people on their toes with a number of costume changes throughout the concert.

From matching velvet suits and 90s rap-themed outfits to wearing their own merch, the K-pop boy group certainly kept fashion critics on their toes.

But then the double denim came out.

Double denim is a fashion faux pas of the highest order. It may have been cool back in the 90s, but the novelty wore off pretty quickly. What cool that was left in the look had disappeared by the time Britney and Justin wore matching Canadian tuxedos in the early 2000s.

And sadly, not even a group as good as GOT7 can make the look cool again no matter how good their performance was. It’s just too distracting to see so much blue denim on one stage. Hell, an argument can be made that no artist, K-pop or otherwise, could rock double denim.

Plus the mere thought of how hot it would be wearing those outfits while performing is sweat inducing, let alone actually doing it in real life.

The lads clearly had the same thought because they abandoned their jean jackets pretty quickly and normal order was resumed as their performances and banter quickly wiped away any lingering thoughts about double denim for the remainder of the concert.

JB signed off the night by quipping how he didn’t expect Australia to be this cold and he should’ve packed warmer clothes. Next time you come back here with GOT7, keep the denim at home and bring literally anything else you have in your wardrobe.

Hell, wear an entire outfit made of bucket hats because it’ll still be an improvement over the all-denim look.

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.
