    I know in my spirit someone told him he looks good in that hat. And I need their name and location so we can fight.

    • EnormousCoat says:

      I didn’t read the caption on the photo, just the link text and I was like ‘Yeah the hat sucks but David Beckham isn’t looking too great either.’ But yeah, the hat looks comical to me.

    • Elle says:

      I think he’s been reading a lot of Hunter S Thompson maybe?

    • Lightpurple says:

      It needs to sit lower on his head

    • schmootc says:

      He looks like a straight-up doofus.

    • L4frimaire says:

      I really don’t understand his appeal. Really don’t.

      • Nomegusta says:

        Honestly when I watched Doctor Strange I thought to myself, ‘Yeah, he could get it and I would gladly give it.’

        But then I saw him at the Met Gala for the ‘Camp’ exhibit, and I had to have a conversation with myself about standards 😩

      • Thirtynine says:

        Me neither. Just don’t get it.

      • L84Tea says:

        @Nomegusta, same here. As Doctor Strange, I think he’s hot and his voice is like warm Grade A maple syrup on pancakes. But in person like this, all I think is ‘Lizard Man’.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        When he is styled for roles he can look good but when he styles himself, not so much. This outfit is no exception.

      • marci-m says:

        I think you have to see him in action/motion. He looks odd in still photos.

      • nya says:

        I don’t understand the Cumberfever, either. Except that, as others have said, he looks really, really, really GOOD as Doctor Strange. Somehow.

        I’m not a fan of his previous works, never found him attractive before, but as Doctor Strange… wew lawd.

        It’s probably the deeper voice + salt n pepper wig + facial hair combo.

  2. Tiffany says:

    Wow, Benedict and his father look very much alike. I always thought he looked like his mother.

    • CL says:

      He sort of looks just like both of them, oddly enough. When left to his own devices, his fashion choices are odd.

  3. Merricat says:

    The “posh man” uniform is hilarious, and also rather colonialist, so less funny.

    • Wiggly says:

      You nailed it. Very racist-colonialist-imperialist kind of attire. Next year he will show up with a safari helmet cosplaying a white hunter, I hear he’s already been looking for the helmet.
      Gawd I hate that mug of his. He is a lizard. I can’t watch anything with him in it.

  4. Sinéad says:

    Aren’t the jewellery pieces for Kulture just investments? Like the actual jewels in the pieces will accrue more than money in a bank over time? That’s what I’ve always thought anyway, and they’ll be locked away in a safe (apart from some photo shoots). The same with the Kardashian kids bdays I always think some of the sweets / cakes at the front are real and the rest are just props…

    • Penguin says:

      The gems in the necklace will devalue quite a lot over time compared to investments from property, stocks, bonds or even cash in a bank acruing interest. Is she wants to get her kid a 250K necklace by all means, but if it were me I’d focus on building some generational wealth through sound investment. The necklace could’ve been plastic and the girl would have still loved it, as any other 3 year old.

    • lanne says:

      Diamonds are not investments. The value of diamond, an incredibly common gem found on nearly every continent, is strictly controlled by cartels, and diamonds as “valuable engagement rings that should cost 2 months salary” is literally one of the 20th century’s most successful marketing campaigns.

      Valuable diamonds are extremely rare, with perfect clarity and in enormous sizes—not the diamonds that would be made into $250k jewelry. Even then the value is like art—not intrinsically valuable but valuable due to consumer interest at that level.

      I have a feeling that that child is wearing what could have been a college fund around her neck. Her mother is blowing money on depreciating assets like cars and jewelry, and it could be rather unlikely that mom will have much wealth to transfer to her children when all is said and done. Her best chance would be investing wisely, keeping her entourage and family obligations as low as possible, and gaining/maintaining control of her own music catalog. If she isn’t doing these things, and unless she has great money managers, she’s not being educated to do these things, then could very well be another celebrity who blew through her money and has nothing to show for it 20 years from now. I hope that won’t be the case for her.

    • SnoodleDumpling says:

      According to jewelry experts, when you purchase a piece of fine jewelry (made of precious stones and/or metal) it immediately depreciates IMMENSELY. A large portion of the price tag is markup, and the resale market cares not for such things. It takes on average about 30 years for fine jewelry to re-appreciate back to it’s original sale price, maybe longer depending on the quality of the piece.

    Greg Abbot is threatening to arrest the Democrats who left the state to avoid the vote so that’s fun and a healthy sign for our democracy.

  6. HAHAHHHAH says:

    I had never heard of Olivia Jade until her mom was arrested for cheating. Im stll not a follower of her either! LOLOLOL

  7. Yonati says:

    Josh O’Conner is so pretty!

  8. KNy says:

    Holy cow he looks like a very rich man who owns a private island where he hunts people for sport.

  9. Robin says:

    Do you remember the fuss about this man? Good grief.

    • Amanda says:

      Yes. People were very into him a few years back.

    • Darla says:

      Yeah, white women need a lot of therapy honestly.

      • Larisa says:

        Because they liked a certain harmless actor? Seriously? If someone wrote that about black women, they’d be hell to pay.

      • Jaded says:

        Darla, normally I really like your comments but this one fell flat. This white woman has always opined that he looks like a cross between an otter and a male version of Kate Moss but I’ve always thought he’s a decent actor. That’s why I like him. And I don’t need therapy because of it.

      • TEALIEF says:

        @ Jaded, I think he looks like an otter too. I love his Sherlock and I’m not white. I like that he’s not classically handsome and like his strange look. He’s what the French would call jolie bête. This tropical baby blue 70′s look however is a bit extra, with the hat, vest, and blue lenses. Lose one element Ben.

    • SnoodleDumpling says:

      Well, he’s attractive when his forehead is covered up. Not covered, his face is too long and lizardy, covered up he’s normal looking.

  10. Kay Henddricks says:

    So glad to see Ben in Celebitchy. He’s the reason I came here in the first place. Looks cool as a Dreamsicle in his pale blue and white. I love the hat and matching hatband, along with the mask. So great to see him out with his Dad. Thanks Celebitchy!

  11. Mireille says:

    Watched Wimbledon only to see if I can catch my Forever Crush Stefan Edberg in the stands. And yup, he was there. Not a Djokovic fan, so didn’t really pay attention to rest of the finals. Was rooting for England to win Euro Cup … and got disappointed there as well. Well, at least, I got my Stefan…

  12. Boo says:

    I can’t get over how similar he looks to his wife. It’s uncanny!!

  13. Meghan says:

    Was the birthday party for Kulture over the top and insanely expensive? Definitely. Did I just realize I’ve bought 7 presents for my child’s upcoming birthday? Sure did. In the pics on Buzzfeed Kulture looks so happy and like she is having a great time, who am I to complain that Cardi B and Offset are spending their money on crazy things? (But hook me up, please, because I went over the top on my kid’s birthday 😬)

    • Lala11_7 says:

      I have been to TOO MANY off the chain birthday parties for children in my time to even BLINK at Cardi’s! Her daughter looks like she had a ball so I’m happy for them❣

  14. nya says:

    Benedict Cumberbatch will forever remain Schrodinger’s Hottie.

    I honestly wouldn’t mind how odd-looking he is. tbh, what I find actually off-putting about him isn’t that sometimes he looks like a melting candle with a terrible hairline: it’s his personality. The man is white wealthy privilege incarnate and everything that comes out of his mouth (specially when he tries to be woke) proves it.

    I can get over a man’s looks, but I will never get over casual bigotry or a terrible personality. I won’t lose my PoC card lmao

  15. V says:

    The only thing I ever remember about Benedict Cumberbatch is that his family’s wealth was built on slavery. Will never be hot.
