Cookie says she didn’t mean it and that post has since been deleted. But still. STILL. There’s a point here. And I’m pretty sure there were times during their alleged halftime performance that even Coldplay didn’t know why Coldplay was there when, well, they had to be saved by Beyoncé and Bruno Mars.

I wish though that that same self-awareness could have been applied to how Chris Martin dresses himself?

That’s an exclusive club. Meanwhile, Annabelle Wallis? Also there:
This, however, was one of my favourites:
