Kristen Stewart & Anne Hathaway go drag king for music video: meh?


Most California hipsters and wannabes know of/are obsessed with Rilo Kiley. Personally, I don’t get it. But I’m not from California, I guess. I mean, Jenny Lewis – the singer/songwriter who started Rilo Kiley with Blake Sennett back in the 1990s – is a good artist and everything. I just don’t get why everyone acts like Rilo Kiley is the best band ever or whatever. I guess I’m not “with it.” Anyway, Rilo Kiley is over. The band’s been over for a while. Jenny Lewis has a solo career and her new album, The Voyager, comes out on July 29th. The first single off the album is “Just One of the Guys” and Lewis got Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart and Brie Larson to star in the video. Not just star… they get to pretend they’re in the band. And they get to do the drag king thing.

It’s an okay song. I liked it the first time I heard it but it annoyed me after the first listen. The chorus plucks my last nerve, if I’m being honest. As for the A-list ladies starring in the video… for my money, it’s all about Anne Hathaway. She looks amazing in that white suit and she doesn’t look half-bad as a dude. Kristen Stewart? Er… she’s a mess. I don’t know what she’s doing with that guitar and her drag king look is… odd. And she’s just so awkward. She doesn’t know how to even be in a music video. As for Brie… well, I don’t care about her at all so I don’t have an opinion.

    Come on. Give KStew a break. This is actually a fun performance from KStew

      She lost me at the lip bite.

    • CTgirl says:

      Oh, was KS in drag? She looked the same to me as she always does.

    • Anna says:

      This is the MOST fun and relaxed I had ever seen her. So goofy, not a touch of awkward. I loved her best of all!

      • mimi says:

        It is a fun music video and all the girls seems to be having a blast goofing around in it. It’s great exposure for Jenny’s new album. Yesterday, this video over at youtube was getting lots and lots of hits. Plus, there has been lots of praise for the song and video coming from respected film, music and even fashion sites.

      • don't kill me i'm french says:


      • I Choose Me says:

        Me too. She looked like she was having fun.

        But I have to say AnnE looked radiant in the video. Love what she did with her hair.

    • JH says:

      Yep- she was super cute! Ann gets on my last nerve ALWAYS. Even great make-up can’t save her from being so cheesy.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I thought she was a bit more lively than we usually see her. For such a simple video, the weight was really on the actors to ham it up. I think I like hammy KS more than pouty KS.

    • danielle says:

      I was very surprised and impressed by KStew. When she was playing the guy she was flat out adorable!

    • Samtha says:

      Agreed! She was really funny and cute.

    • ray says:

      yeah, surprisingly i liked k stew in this, she was kinda fun. i hated the song though. yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn. also brie larson is beautiful.

  2. Intro Outro says:

    The song imo is incredibly boring and too long.

    But, surprisingly, I liked Kristen in the vid! I though she’s really funny here 😀

  3. Rubber Ducky says:

    Lighten up, Francis. They’re just having some fun.

  4. GiGi says:

    This is just a group of people I actively dislike. So imagine my surprise when I really enjoyed it, lol! I thought it was fun and I actually thought KStew was great in it.

    • mystified says:

      It’s sort of the reverse of those criminal couples who, if they hadn’t teamed up would have never become criminals. These two should always team up lest they remind us of their individual personalities.

  5. Sarah says:

    I love Brie. Watch The United States of Tara, so good.

  6. wooley says:

    kristen is gorgeous!

  7. serena says:

    I liked Kristen in drag more than Anne’s.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      Me too

    • Jenna says:

      Have to admit, she looks more like a guy.

      Actually. More like a SPECIFIC guy. Does anyone else think she looks like Elijah Woods little brother, or am I just having a mother in law induced moment of insanity?

      • I Choose Me says:

        I thought she was doing Justin Beiber. The hair in particular reminds me of when he first hit it big.

      • mimi says:

        Yeah, I thought of Bieber right away when I saw Kristen in the wig doing that Bieber-like dance move. I also think she looks a little bit like Louis from 1 Direction.

      • kri says:

        You have got it, Jenna. I was trying to think of who she was reminding me of…boom. Nailed it. Be careful swiming in Mother-in-law infested waters.

  8. Abbott says:

    Do they think all dudes dress like your creepy neighbor down the street? What in the 90’s Hip Hop hell are they wearing?

  9. Black orchid says:

    kristen looks beautiful ,but Anne steals the show,quite a nice change fm watching all the other crap in music videos

    • Mel M says:

      I agree Anne was the only one that had be actually laughing with her “break dancing” Kristen does look awkward in that white suit with that matted Barbie hair but in the drag she’s being goofy and not so bad.

  10. Ey says:

    Cracking up at stews crazy obsessed fan responses to this vid. They act like she’s the first woman in the history of the world to ever do a drag act. How she’s so bold, inspirational and revolutionary for doing this work of art. And they are all absolutely totally sure no other actress would ever even DARE do the same thing. (Jennifer Lawrence’s name is always brought up at this point? IDK Y..)

    • lulu says:

      they have issues with Jennifer Lawrence. maybe because Jennifer has the career, respect, and public love they wish for Kristen. Jennifer has never said anything mean about Kristen, but some of the Kristen fans hate Jennifer.

  11. Erinn says:

    What’s with Anne’s eye area? It looks a little funky – has she gotten work recently? In the drag photos it’s not as noticeable, but it looks like someones pulling her eyebrows up.

    • M says:

      Anne is currently filming a comedy with Robert De Niro.

      I feel that Anne is trying hard again to people love her. She joked recently about hathahaters, doing what Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield did, and now this. I like her, but I wanted her to not care so much.

      BTW Kristen looks so natural.

  12. me says:

    Anne looks really pretty. She steals the show. Oddly Kstew looks incredibly uncomfortable holding a guitar, which is weird considering she did that Joan Jett movie.

  13. Sophie says:

    You should care about Brie, watch Short Term 12, she is brilliant in it.

    And I actually thought Kristen looked like she was just having a really fun time! It’s the first time she hasn’t annoyed the cr*p out of me

    • Liz says:

      Adding my recommendation to Short term 12, great film. As for the music video it’s cute and a bit silly.

    • Tig says:

      Short Term 12 is great- and she’s so good in it. As for video- the stills were so dumb I didn’t bother with the video.

  14. MrsBPitt says:

    That song is horrendous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Em says:

    Sh*tty song and even worse video. I like Anne here though. She rocks it. I WANT to like Kristen but she’s so actively bad at acting (or performing) it’s impossible!

  16. Zee says:

    I’m a big Jenny Lewis fan and I think this is cute. Kind of surprised by the meh response on here, since the song and video got a good reception on other websites. It’s supposed to be silly and awkward.

  17. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Sorry, I thought they looked ridiculous as men except for the pretty blonde one who I don’t know. And that song was a snooze.

  18. Amy Tennant says:

    I like dude!KStew.

  19. tracy says:

    I love the reference to that old Robert Palmer “Addicted to Love” video. Kristen, Anna and Brie looked exactly like the ladies in that video, right down to the bad guitar “playing” and facial expressions. Brie is adorable. And Kristen has the “creep guy, who thinks he is God’s gift to women, down pat. I love Kristen’s spit at the end, why do guys do that???

  20. Rice says:

    I thought the video was hilarious! I thoroughly enjoyed all the ladies. Anne was spectacular. Kristen did an excellent Justin Beiber-like douchebag act and Brie was hilarious. Overall, it was a fun video.

  21. Sleepyjane says:

    Kristen’s eyes look like glass.

  22. pretty says:

    i don’t like Kristen Stewart but she is so good looking, she is gorgeous either way. she is hot.

  23. mfmaefh says:

    I like the song and the video, they were funny

  24. Hissyfit says:

    Anne is gorgeous! I enjoyed Kstew here. She is so cute and funny!

  25. MickeyM says:

    Yeah, I think Kstew is funny here. And no bitey lip.

  26. starfan says:

    The video is super boring & not funny at all.

  27. QueenOfTheBadCats says:

    Annie is everything in this.

  28. Josefa says:

    Is that the best drag they could do? …

  29. JH says:

    Kristen can actually dance really well! The girl’s got rhythm. That’s surprising to me.
    Ann, as always, was trying way too hard.

  30. lulu says:

    song is so bad. poor anne with an “e” she is trying so hard to get people to like her.

  31. deezee says:

    Thought this was the best “acting” I’ve ever seen from KStew. Maybe that’s the way people behind the scenes see her and why they keep hiring her for stuff.

  32. LolaB says:

    Wasn’t Jenny Lewis on an episode of “The Golden Girls”?

  33. meh says:

    Wow, this song is a load of cr@p

  34. BackstageBitchy says:

    Kristin was even more annoying than I usually find her, and I’m not sure how that’s possible. She was even unlikeable as a goofy guy!
    Anne, I have to say, has never looked better. I mean her as a girl, not as a boy.
    I actually did a double take bc I thought “that gorgeous elegant girl cannot be braying AnnE”!

  35. kite says:

    Reading all these comments got me curious enough to watch that video. I couldn’t get out fast enough…. lol so I saw a few seconds, jumped ahead and saw few more secs. thats all I could do.

    I guess I just cannot stand watching Kristen. Everything about her makes me cringe.
