2020 may have been the year that Taylor Swift came back sronger than a ’90s trend, but I don’t exactly remember rocking a life-sized bear costume with my jelly bracelets and butterfly clips. To ring in the new year and say farewell to 2020 once and for all, Taylor shared a photo of herself wearing a faux bear coat on Instagram. Yes, including the mouth, eyes, and nose. “Bye 2020, it’s been weird,” she captioned the post, which, while somewhat unsettling, also sort of makes a lot of sense.
Through the good and the bad, the “Well, this might as well happen” meme seemed to be applicable all year round, and this photo fits right in as weird, wonderful, and very 2020. As much as we appreciate (and deeply understand) the sentiment, Taylor, we can’t help but ask a few questions about this particular photo:
- Long story short, we love this look but where did she get it?
- Also, why the heck was she wearing it in the first place?
- So, is that a coat or, dare I say, a cardigan?!
- Wait, is this a hint about her mysterious Woodvale album? BRB, scoping out clues!
- Is she wearing matching pants? And slippers?
- Can we expect a new music video with Taylor in this fantastic costume?
- Is this the new look of 2021? Should we all be wearing bear costumes right now?
- We love this look but why doesn’t it come with paws?!
- Is or isn’t this a hint at a new song? New album? New aesthetic? We can’t bear to wonder any longer, Taylor!
Yeah, 2020 might have felt unbearable at times, but this photo was definitely a nice way to send off the year. Thanks, Taylor – it’s been weird!
Drinking from a mug that says “crap bag” may seem weird, unless you’re a huge fan of Friends. True lovers of the show are mostly likely still watching reruns and quoting their favorite episodes on the daily. But are you really a diehard fan if you don’t own any merch? We uncovered a handful of funny and quirky products worth owning from Amazon. These fun picks make for perfect gifts this holiday season too. Keep reading to check them all out and treat them to these nostalgic finds. Take a look.
Happiest Season is my new favorite holiday rom-com, and it’s not because of Kristen Stewart‘s broody Abby or Mackenzie Davis’s repressed Harper. Those actors may be the names on the marquee, but the real star is the most bizarre member of the Caldwell family: Jane, played with refreshing zeal by Mary Holland. (Fun fact: Holland cowrote Happiest Season‘s screenplay with director Clea DuVall!)
Jane is one of three Caldwell sisters, and she is . . . weird. She’s always around, her love for her family is so intense that you can practically see it emanating from her body, and she has passions and dreams of her own. Jane is fabulous, and though her family doesn’t appreciate her, it’s impossible not to love her.
Here are all the reasons Jane is the best part of Happiest Season – no shade to Dan Levy, who is clearly the second MVP.
I feel like we’ve scored a goal: Ted Lasso, the feel-good comedy on Apple TV+ starring Jason Sudeikis, will have a second season. The first season is full of positivity and fun as Sudekis’s Ted, an American football coach, is hired to coach an English soccer team despite having no experience. However, he has many optimistic moments and quotable lines like, “When it comes to locker rooms, I like them just like my mother’s bathing suit – I only want to see them in one piece.” The humor will continue in season two, which will debut in 2021 and include 10 episodes. Apple renewed season two only a week after the first season premiered, and it also already confirmed season three!
As far as the plot of Ted Lasso season two, Brett Goldstein, who writes for the show and plays Roy, doesn’t want to spill any spoilers. “We’ve already started to write season two. But I can’t tell you anything. I don’t want to spoil anything, because we have some nice surprises planned,” he said. According to Bill Lawrence, the executive producer, season two will not include a COVID-19 storyline. “When we shot it the first time, this wasn’t on our radar,” he said. “If [COVID-19] is still a day-to-day issue when a second season comes out . . . people are going to want escapist entertainment. Half-empty stadiums with Zoom crowds? It’s too weird to even be writing.”
