Celebrities get to do so much cool shit that we plebs cannot. They forgo pants, they can do drugs in front of the president, they can kill people, and they can wear face paint. Maybe even all at the same time! I can't help but wonder where this face paint trend came from. My guess is that it has something to do with the band MGMT's rise to fame in summer 2008. Did the facepaint come from MGMT's motherland of Wesleyan in Middletown, Connecticut? Is that what people do there? Or was it merely birthed from the sinewey loins of North Brooklyn? Regardless, I'm into it. You can find me at a lame bar in Murray Hill trying it out this weekend.
