Fug Yet Fab: Jedward, With An Assist From Tara Reid, Of All People

In the previous post, I noted that slim celebrity fashion pickings of late threatened to necessitate posting snaps of Tara Reid in St. Tropez with Jedward (whom you might remember from Eurovision in 2011 and 2012, or, if you live in the UK, from a LOT of things). And one sentence later I was basically like, “WAIT. I should post them VOLUNTARILY.” Because LOOK AT THEM. And since approximately five photo agencies were in possession of these, I have to assume that T-T-T-Tara and the Jeds are completely fine with the Internet making a vacation album for them. You’re welcome, kids. Naturally, it’s best envisioned as a montage replete with star wipes, set to “Farewell, My Summer Love,” by Michael Jackson, but I hope this will do for now.

    Are they painted white? Because my husband is a pale Brit and he looks like he’s got a spray tan compared to these two.

    • Talia

      they aren’t British, they’re Irish.

      • Anna

        The point remains. They are really fucking white.

        • Alex

          Are you serious???

          Since when is it acceptable to comment on skin colour (a race-determined physical characteristic) in that manner???

          If in doubt, swap “white” for “black” and “British” for “African”, and see if the sentence sounds EXTREMELY HATEFUL AND RACIST like yours did to me.

          For example: “Are they painted black? Because my husband is a dark African and he looks like he hasn’t tanned in years compared to these two….The point remains, they are really fucking black”.

          OK or not OK?

    I really don’t know what to say about these images. Is this performance art? How are they so pale/opalescent?

  3. Artemis

    Oh, PLEASE post Eurovision stars in their natural habitats! I wouldn’t know there WAS a thing called Eurovision unless I read this blog – and that’s just wrong. See? You make the States a weirder, happier, and ultimately better place.

  4. Pouncer

    I can’t stop laughing.

  5. Jill

    Every single picture my reaction was WTF?

  6. Christopher Leo

    I can’t get my head around how white they are. The sun will do them good!

  7. Jules

    I can’t lie — I covet that paleness! Ever since we moved I’ve gone all freckly and I HATE it.

  8. Mara

    Can we talk about why Tara Reid is pretending they’re her Sassy Friends? What happened there?

  9. junaitatres

    The hell? Who? What? Why?

  10. Leah M

    Wow. And I want to point out that Robert Pattison could play both of them, just like Armie Hammer as the “Winklevii” in the Social Network. And I would describe that color as more of a blue-grey.

    • Anu

      I have to say I LOVED The social Newtwork and “Winklevii” was the best line ever in that movie!!
      As an aside – who are the pale boys with pokey hair? They ARE thoroughly amusing whoever they are!

  11. bex

    This post gave me so much JOY. Is she dating both of them? Why hair? WHY? Are they slim jims? So many questions!

  12. Beth

    She’s technically old enough to be their mother (more like aunt) seriously what is going on?

    It’s such an odd pairing…publicity wise I’m not even sure who this would help…the people who know one likely don’t know the others.

    I also really hope they invested in some SPF 100 sunscreen

  13. val.

    Is she babysitting? Why is she with them? So bizarre.

  14. Sara Bennett

    Jedward are Ireland’s national treasure. They are basically useless yet awesome. They have their own chocolate bar. They could do so much better than Tara. PS many Irish people are indeed that pale. It’s what happens when then sun comes out for about a day and a half every year.

  15. witjunkie

    Fug Girls, because of you and your ongoing committment to Eurovision, I know who Jedward is. This would never have happened without you. You have Enriched my Life.

  16. Rebecca

    I…just…there are no words. So much confusion. So many questions.

  17. Lynne

    How did this even happen? I mean, I can now actually begin a sentence with, “So I’m looking at a photo of Jedward and Tara Reid in a dingy…”

  18. Shiitake

    As promised…horifying.

  19. olivia

    Jedward are reality show stars from Ireland They are not on a holiday even though they tweeted they are. They realise the potential of the international press regarding tara and that is why they are dressed as Jedward in their work clothes. IF they werent using her they would be incognito with their hair down etc. They are trashy reality stars who enter every reality show for money. this here is another one except it is on a beach.

  20. vandalfan

    “Snap into a Slim Jim!”

    Don’t they ever let those poor boys out of the basement?

  21. mary lou bethune

    You people will have to enlighten me: do young folks actually go around looking like that? They look ridiculous and tacky to the nth degree.

  22. ceecee

    They remind me of Devo. And I was really hoping the guy jumping into the boat was going in the drink. Let’s see how his hair gel stands up to that.

    • Elbyem

      Like Devo, except ONE THOUSAND TIMES less talented, and total d-bags whenever they open their mouths.

  23. TaraMisu

    I don’t…. I just don’t get it. Why are these people together??

    And Jedward is 2 of the WHITEST people I have ever seen. And that is coming from someone often referred to as a corpse.

  24. Travis

    I don’t think we will realize the complex and subtle genius of this for many years to come.

  25. Mahastee

    I look at this and I hear “Sandcastles in the Sand”.

    Please god, never EVER let them be compared to Devo in any way ever again. Ever.

  26. olivia

    America doesnt not need another reality act If they think TAra is on the way out she wont be much help to them. I think alot of intelligent people wil lsee that they are looking for a Hollywood agent to signthem up and they think Tara will help them. I think they need to have a drink a chill out they are after all on vacation.????

  27. Melbourne on my mind

    Jedward did a song last year called “Wow Oh Wow”, and Tara Reid is in the video clip. Which is spectacularly confusing, I should add! Personally, I’m hoping this means that they’re making another epically confusing video clip with her in it for no apparent reason!!

  28. (the other) Jessica

    This is the greatest thing I’ve seen all day, and I internet-met Kim Kierkegaardashian today (https://twitter.com/KimKierkegaard). Seriously, I can’t believe these aren’t sketch comedy stills.

  29. Infoqueen

    I picture Tara Reid as Jedward’s foreign-exchange student host-mother. Next, she’ll take them to Disney World, and buy them souvenir t-shirts.
    And the Irish tend to be the poster children for the “whiter shade of pale,” and generally come with the warning label: “Keep out of direct sunlight.”

  30. Sajorina

    I have no idea what the hell is going on here, but it is HILARIOUS! Tara’s beach appropriate outfits are MEH, but Jedward’s commitment to looking exactly the same at all times & blinding the sun with their whiteness is to be commended and deserves a FAB!

  31. pondie

    Jedward and Tara Reid ‘lived together’ in the UK Celebrity Big Brother house for a week or so so that explains the connection.

  32. Katherine

    Those boys are both rather easy on the eye, I like their beautifully pale skin myself. The one with the black hat has a very cute smile : )

  33. Jed Powered Juliet

    The boys are quite gorgeous, and most Irish people are very white skinned like that, unless they use sunbeds or fake tan….They met Tara on a UK reality TV show and they have visited each other whenever they got the chance ever since… they have an album out at the moment called Young Love thats charting all over Europe and even in East Asia..its actually pretty good.

    • The Fugger

      .They met Tara on a UK reality TV show and they have visited each other whenever they got the chance ever since

      This would warm my heart, if there wasn’t a black lump of coal where my heart is supposed to be. (I think I had one once. Maybe back when Milli Vanilli was a thing. girl you know it’s girl you know it’s girl you know it’s true)

  34. Mari

    I’m sorry, I have met a couple of Irish lads in my life and yes they are pale but never like that. They look like Bavarian veal sausages.

  35. Te Kiira Parkinson

    so this is what the Bananas in Pyjamas do on the weekend ..huh

  36. Andrea

    Woooooooowwwww. We get plenty of Irish visiting here in Aus but they don’t stay that white for very long. I had no idea it was so dark over there. :-/

  37. Genesis P. Olenta

    I was wondering…aren’t they just shooting a video for a Tara/Jedward single to be released in august ? That would explain many things about costumes…

  38. Blanche

    Jedward convinces me of three (3) things:
    1) My thighs most closely resemble, of all celebrities’ thighs, Jedward’s.*
    2) The skintight pants fashion mandate exists to make people like Jedward and me sacrificial goats to the relative advantage of skinny-thighed women.
    3) That is not the purpose of my life.

    * Unlike Jedward I am 43 years old, female, correspondingly have a high estrogen v. testosterone ratio, and I’ve born at least 1 offspring. Apparently like Jedward, I have a hard time getting going on the jogging.
