Do you remember the first time that you heard REM’s Everybody Hurts? It made you cry as it does every other time you listened to the melancholy tune. I guess Michael Stipe just played it for himself because look at how sad his face is in this photo. Forget Sad Keanu Reeves, this is the saddest looking celebrity out there.
I am going cry just looking at him and I am didn’t even press play yet on Everybody Hurts.
In the last few years, David Letterman and Michael Stipe have lost some hair on the top of their heads and grew on their faces. In fact, the former late show host and the REM singer grew out big bushy beards like Santa Claus.
Due the whitening of hair and where it has relocated, both men have become look alikes. So much so, it is hard to tell them apart. Even Stipe said, “So f*cked up.” And here I was thinking what’s the frequency, Kenneth?
BTW is it just me or do they both look like garden gnomes?
It has been over 20 years since REM released its the End of the World. Now they we are so close to it, Stephen Colbert decided to rework it for our disastrous year on The Late Show and asked Michael Stipe to join him. For some reason the bearded singer was not fine with it, but then he joined in on It’s the End of the Year.
I don’t know about you, but this version is replacing the old one on my iPod.
Michael Stipe continues to walk red carpets with the most depressing expressions, and yesterday he added another sad picture to the collection at On The Road premiere. I am not sure if it was his normal sad face, or it is because he heard how he sounded at the 12-12-12 concert. The haunt in voice was gone and that made me hurt.
Michael Stipe was out yesterday for an event and he looked like he needed to hear his song Shiny Happy People ASAP. What’s the Frequency, Stipe? Why do you look like It’s the End of the World as We Know It? It’s OK to smile, we won’t think any of less of you.
