Most people would agree that, as a society, we have an unhealthy obsession with celebrities. Superfans take things to another level and often notice things about famous folks that most people miss. Here are some of the strangest celebrity observations that were shared in a popular online forum.
1. Kourtney Kardashian Changed Her Entire Image
After marrying her husband, drummer Travis Barker, Kourtney Kardashian seems to have changed her entire personality to be a mirror image of his. Many fans have noticed how she seems to shapeshift to whoever she's dating.
2. Florence Pugh Dating Zach Braff
Evidently, Zach Braff looks just like his former girlfriend Florence Pugh‘s father. Not to mention, Braff is considerably older in age than Pugh, and could literally be her father… but we digress.
3. Selena Gomez Is the New Britney
One fan noted that Selena Gomez is burnt out on celebrity life but keeps going for some reason. Who's really in charge behind the scenes?
Leave Selena aloneeee!
4. Taylor Swift Is Shoeless a Lot
One fan noticed they'd seen a lot of T-Swift's puppies over the years, mostly in music videos. Is capturing the foot-fetish industry the secret ingredient to Taylor Swift's success?
5. Denzel Washington Had a Crooked Finger
No, really, look it up. Directors did an excellent job hiding it for decades, but Denzel Washington had a pinky finger bent at a near-90-degree angle. Years of football injuries caused the deformity, and Denzel eventually had it fixed.
You can't erase pictures, though. They show Denzel's finger looking more crooked than his character in Training Day.
6. Katy Perry's Blonde Phase Was a Mistake
Poll 100 people, and what percentage will say they prefer blonde Katy Perry over brunette Katy Perry? Zero percent, and that might be a bit too high.
7. Justin Bieber Is Tipping His Pitches
One Belieber noticed that Biebs touches his nose when he finds a female he's talking to attractive. Is it true, or is it just a figment of a crazed fan's imagination?
You'll have to decide for yourself.
8. Lady Gaga? More Like Fakey Gaga!
One Gaga-head couldn't hold it in any longer. Trolls be darned, they believe that much of Lady Gaga's over-the-top emotional displays are all an act.
Well, she is an actor, among other things. Would it be a stretch to say she's embellishing a bit for the camera?
9. Some Actors Have Ticks
You must watch a lot of Timothee Chalamet or Ethan Hawke to notice that the actors have facial ticks. That's why these are fan observations.
10. The Weeknd = Michael Jackson
One R&B fan believes that The Weeknd's entire act is a Michael Jackson ripoff.
Now that you mention it, The Weeknd does sound a bit like Mike. But then again, could that be the permanent falsetto both crooners employ?
We will have to hear The Weeknd's cover of “ABC” before issuing a definitive verdict on this.
11. K-Pop “Idols” Have Smooth Armpits
Someone actually said that K-Pop female “Idols” (Google it) have smooth armpits. Do we have some list we can put this person on? Put them on the list!
12. Coldplay's Cold Streak
Isn't it interesting that a band that established itself as markedly different from prevailing musical currents is now churning out radio-centric pander anthems almost exclusively?
I am just observing here.
13. Is Britney Spears' Eyeliner a Tattoo?
That is what one conspiratorial fan alleges. Put it this way, when was the last time you saw a photograph of Brit without smudged eyeliner? It's been a minute; by “minute,” I mean it's been years.
14. Bruno Mars Banks on Un-Originality
How does Bruno Mars rack up gold record after gold record with songs that feel borrowed from another era? Unoriginality is lucrative, as one music fan observes.
15. Henry Cavill Isn't All That Mysterious
A lot of fans like to think that Henry Cavill is a suave, mysterious man and there's not a lot of information available about him, but in reality, he does a lot of interviews and talks openly about his life quite often.
