Celebs gone twee.

Oh, ick:
SARAH JESSICA PARKER has admitted that she has taken to dressing like The Beatles to please her two-year-old son James. "He wants all of us to dress like the Beatles in the Yellow Submarine era – collars with flowers, really weird haircuts and bell bottoms. He will only wear bell bottoms, which are not easy to find. So I dress in a way that makes him happy because he is the centre of our lives."

MORE:
"The only way we could get him out of pyjamas was to tell him he could dress like a Beatle!... My son has some strong feelings about what I should and shouldn't be wearing. James is like, 'Take that dress off, I don't like it.' Or, 'I'd like you to wear long pants today.' So I dress in a way that makes him happy, because he basically is the centre of our lives," she said.

Yikes!

I'll take Sarah Jessica Parker over Ferris Beuller any day of the week.

He's only 2 years old! How old is she? 12?

oh yeah, there's a kid who will grow up to form healthy relationships.

No way am I doing Yellow Submarine Era. Maybe early Beatles, if that'll please the little guy. Maybe Rubber Soul, that shouldn't be too hard.....I will have to get a top piece though, if you're wondering, that is H.A.I.R.
I'd like to do bell bottoms for old times sake but I'm not leaving the house.
What else would the little fellow want?

Pat said...

At least she gave him a normal name like James.

ick is right.

the situation is merely "messed up", until she unflinchingly announces it. Then it's ick.

Mommy, I am the sun and you and daddy are the planets that revolve around me. That two year old has a lot of power.

This isn't so bad, at least not from a male or lesbian perspective... How many of you would just love to have Jessica Parker dress however YOU wanted?

The jealousy is strong in these comments.

It's when Sarah and Matthew reenact the Two Virgins cover for the kiddies, that's when we call Social Services...

*LOL* WTF. :)

The jealousy is strong in these comments.

The Force is stronger. Surrender!

Ann, I understand why you commented on this creepy story of desperate parents of an only child (like erm, my parents were once), but come on:

You left out Kirstin Dunst doing a possible Winona at Harvey Nicks in London.

That's dirt I wanna know.

Let's all go out and buy National Enquirers, now. Ready, set go!

Cheers,
Victoria

At the risk of beating a dead horse, The Rutles are far superior. Dress up like Stig O'Hara and Nasty and sing "Cheese and Onions." Discerning children will accept nothing less.

And by the way, "twee" is a magnificent word.

Sally said...

Yes, ick! The most horrible thing about children today is that we are raising them to think it is o.k. to be a narcissist. I would love for parents to stop thinking that every god awful thing that their children do is cute and sweet. O.K. about half of what they do is cute and sweet,but the other half deserves a firm - No - as in, no I will not dress you in only bell bottoms and dress up like the beatles! Now is this so hard, SJP?

Matt Brown said...

I'm waiting for when her kid asks that she dress as a goth queen.

Ron said...

Can't SJP just ask Macca to come over? In Pepper duds? and really, is Ringo doing all that much?

"In the town where I was born, lived a man who sailed to sea...We all live in a bubble of self-esteem,a bubble of self-esteem,a bubble of self-esteem."

For some reason that made me throw up a little in my mouth.

XWL said...

This made me think of the Saddam trial from this week.

(wha?)

All two year olds are natural tyrants, and all tyrants are two year olds emotionally.

The refusal to say his name should have deserved a time out and derision from the press rather than praise for his 'defiance'.

SJP's indulgence of her little tyrant can't possibly lead to any good, hopefully she's just playing cute and decadent for the reporter, and doesn't do things as described on a regular basis.

Kirk Parker said...

Ummmm, OK, and you expected intelligent behavior from SJP why????

Meade said...

Ron: nicely done.

Victoria: 'fraid this is one inquiring mind that wants not to know.

Pat Patterson said...

Could be worse, little James could have picked the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band.
