TIMOTHEE CHALAMET REVERTS BACK TO THE MASK

Gotcha!  Apparently Timothee Chalamet did not like the fact that a clever paparazzi managed to secretly shoot him indulging in a slice of 99 cent pizza yesterday while he was strolling around NYC. (see post below) Today he piled on the layers to disguise himself. A baseball cap, a hoody AND a mask (?) definitely make him a less desirable photo op. That’s quite a sacrifice considering the excessive heat warnings …

KANYE WEST AND THE JOY OF INTIMIDATION

Take a good look. This is how Kanye West walked out of his Los Angeles home Friday when the weather report was sunny – in the high sixties. He’s scarier looking than Pete Davidson. We’ve already discussed the fisherman boots, but cannot imagine what if feels like to wear leather pants, that heavy leather jacket, thick gloves, and the full ski mask in temperate weather. Kanye is selling his own Donda version of the head mask for $300, described as “engineered” by Balenciaga (with 2 zippers for eyes) but it doesn’t seem to have caught on yet – not even with criminals. Keep in mind, anti-vax Kanye’s head masks are useless and do NOT protect against Covid- he caught it a year ago. Kanye claims he wants to be recognized for his “art,” NOT his celebrity face.

KID ROCK AND HIS MISPLACED MACHISMO

It will be interesting to see how Kid Rock’s Bad Reputation tour 2022 pans out since he announced that he won’t perform at any venues that require vaccinations or masks. His tour starts April 6 and runs to June 15. He assured fans that they will get refunds if the venues still have Covid mandates by the dates of his scheduled concerts. He’s making a big deal out of his macho anti-vax posturing, but if the rest of us are careful, Covid might have subsided and mandates be dropped by his start date- or he will lose a lot of money. Uncooperative Buffalo and Toronto already backed OFF the tour list and most of Rock’s concerts are in small towns in the South and Midwest, so he might get lucky. But he’s still obnoxious.

RIHANNA AND ASAP ROCKY: RULES DON’T APPLY

Here’s a dilemma for salespeople in upscale stores. Rihanna and ASAP Rocky popped into the Celine store on Wooster Street in Soho and they were NOT wearing masks. The store requires EVERYONE to be masked, but the famous pair browsed the merchandise oblivious to the rule. Usually the help would offer a free mask to any shopper without one, but no one bothered the celebrity couple. Other customers couldn’t help but notice- would they complain? Was everyone afraid to say something? Somehow Rocky and Rihanna got in and out of the store UNMASKED and nobody said a word.

DOES KEANU REEVES EVER WEAR A MASK?

Keanu Reeves has been working in Berlin for MONTHS and paparazzi know when he’ll be leaving his hotel for the set every day, so we see loads of photos of him. Keanu usually has soaking wet hair when he walks out of the hotel and we’ve never seen him wear a mask. He’s been in Germany working back to back on Matrix 4, followed by TWO installments of John Wick, and he seems to like it there. His girlfriend Alexandra Grant has been with him most of the time, and they’ve been seen together at restaurants and art galleries- without masks. It must be love- they even SHOP together! It’s odd- Keanu doesn’t seem like an anti-mask type…

BEYONCE OBEYS THE RULES

Beyonce walked out of a Grammys after-party in Santa Monica with Jay Z looking majestic in her silver metallic gown and quite happy until she saw the fans and paparazzi. Oops! Suddenly she realized that her silver veil face covering was NOT enough – she should be wearing a mask! She certainly didn’t want to be accused of being an anti-masker, so she stopped dead in her tracks and covered her mouth until a friend could hand her a black mask.

BROOKE BURKE: YOUR SWEATER IS NOT A MASK

What the heck is going on at Nobu in Malibu? Brooke Burke walked out after dinner there, looking like THIS. A pulled up turtleneck is no substitute for a mask (according to Dr Fauci) – we wonder if she got away with this inside. At least her boyfriend, real estate developer Scott Rigsby, has a mask in his hand. Brooke, 49, divorced David Charvet in 2018 and has been with Scott through the pandemic. She has four kids with two ex-husbands so this girl has baggage, but luckily she’s super-cute. (Did you know Brooke started out as a Frederick’s of Hollywood catalog model?) Brooke won Season 7 of Dancing with the Stars and they liked her so much that she hung around as a host on the show for years. All she needs now is a real mask…

NO ONE IN TARGET IS LOOKING AT ANGELINA JOLIE

Angelina Jolie is obviously enjoying the anonymity her mask provides, so she didn’t hesitate to take Zahara shopping at Target yesterday (yes, a Saturday!) She usually has a bodyguard keeping a discreet distance somewhere in the background “just in case,” but he doesn’t appear until there are packages to carry. In this situation, the paparazzo stayed out of sight so he wouldn’t reveal his target, and almost no one was aware that THE Angelina Jolie was in their midst. In fact no one was even looking at her. Nice for a change.

BRUCE WILLIS: TOO MACHO FOR A MASK?

Bruce Willis identifies as an Independent voter but he has some conservative ideas. He believes everyone should be able to have a gun. He dislikes government in general – especially the way his tax money is spent. But what’s more important is his behavior in public. Bruce is a tough guy in his movies and apparently he likes that image. He walked into a Rite-Aid drugstore in LA without a mask. Really. (The pandemic is out of control here) An employee approached him and told him other shoppers were uncomfortable and complained. He was politely asked to cover up. Bruce was wearing a scarf he could have pulled up, but he chose NOT to, and walked out of the store empty handed – with a stern look on his face.

SELMA BLAIR AND HER TWO MASKED BOYFRIENDS

Selma Blair is amazing in more ways than one. She managed to switch boyfriends in the middle of a pandemic AND a health crisis! Two years ago, Selma was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and her boyfriend at that time was Australian actor David Lyons. He was very supportive during her chemotherapy when she lost her hair, and sweet and helpful when she had trouble walking. In December, Selma started wearing a diamond ring and everyone assumed she was engaged to David. In March, she was seen arm in arm with a guy and both were wearing masks – it was assumed that the guy was David, and several websites and magazines identified him as such. But in fact, it turned out Selma and David had split, and she had gone back to a former boyfriend, actor/producer Ron Carlson. (David and Ron DO kinda look alike) Selma and Ron have been a happy couple ever since!
