If you’ve been awake at any point in the last 24 hours, chances are you’ve heard, seen and/or witnessed the buzz around last nights 71st Golden Globe Awards. It’s kind of unavoidable. Why? Mainly because everyone was drunk. Very drunk. Seriously though, was last year’s Golden Globe’s like this?
While there were a number of golden moments last night (shout out to Emma Thompson), this is a music blog, so we’re going to focus on the smattering of artists who were present for soundtrack nominations. Here’s a few highlights:
On Alex Ebert winning Best Original Score for All Is Lost.
Me: “That guy looks like the lead singer of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.”
Friend: “Wait, that IS the guy from Edward Sharpe.”
Me: “That explains it.”
On Diddy’s reaction to Alex Ebert winning Best Original Score
In Diddy’s words, “He was on a boat with me partying in St. Bart’s—and now here we are, together!” Translation: Random dude on boat ain’t so random after all. He’s actually kind of a big deal.
Also, ever notice how Diddy likes to be addressed as Sean Combs whenever he wears a tux? I bet at the after party he switched back to Diddy. Actually maybe he saved that for the after, after party/hotel lobby.
On Jared Leto’s waxing limits and man-bun.
Leto won Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club. He said he waxed his entire body for the role, stopping short of getting a Brazilian (and shaving his head – I’m looking at you, man-bun). Speaking of buns, Leto wanted to clarify that the “bubble butt” on screen was all his (while simultaneously confessing he’s been listening to Major Lazer).
You know who was especially digging Leto’s man-bun? Taylor Swift. The two were seen exchanging pleasantries at an after party. Do you think they were talking about writing songs together? Do we think it be a beautiful duet about his beautiful hair? Someone get this man a shampoo commercial, stat.
On Bono and his shades.
He’s still wearing those things inside? Okay, cool, it’s your signature, I get it.
Also that moment Amy Poehler attacked Bono’s face (with her lips) after he gave her a back massage/they announced she won a globe for Best Actress in a TV Comedy. What do you suppose was going through his mind at that exact moment?
On Usher and his oxblood suit.
Shout out to Usher who looked real slick in an “oxblood wool two-button notch lapel tuxedo, black dress shirt, black bow tie and black leather shoes from the fall 2013 Calvin Klein collection” (thanks for breaking that down E!). Oxblood suits, take note gentlemen.
