    I can go the rest of my life without ever seeing Corey Feldman in a mesh shirt again.

    • Aspasia
      +6

      Why the hell was he even there? I mean, he hasn’t been relevant for years.

      •  Sharon
        +8

        Neither has Billy Ray… In fact he is the ANTI-reletvant… with what his spawn has unleashed on society in the last couple of years I really think that long hair is hiding 666 in the back of his neck.

    • Narshkite
      +23

      Other than the mesh, he looks like a mid-1990′s central casting high school movie lesbian best friend.

    • Cora
      +16

      Seriously — did anyone else look at him and say, “Hey, kd lang is back!”?

    • Vicki
      +5

      I feel as thought this Corey Feldman pic has scarred me for life. And, really, I feel little bad for him. Such desperation.

    • TriSarahTops
      +18

      He would be the ideal choice to play Charlie Sheen in the eventual biopic.

    • tigers4us
      +2

      “Exquisitely hideous” doesn’t begin to describe the damage that shirt’s done to my retinas.

    • Gypsy Danger
      +3

      I feel like Adam Lambert should be wearing this outfit. It would look better on him (if he wasn’t blonde at the moment).

      • jean
        +3

        I always forget which Corey died. I always think it’s Feldman and then this happened. I will say he seems to have excellent skin for a fortysomething.

  2.  glee

    Lambert for the win. WTF for the rest.

    •  Mel Duff
      +17

      Lambert= younger, hotter George Michael? I have feelings.

      • Agent Sculder
        +9

        It’s always good to know I’m not alone. As soon as I saw the blonde hair I was reminded of my long ago crush on George Michael. Back when I was young and clueless enough to think he was straight. Good times.

        Methinks I should blast “Freedom ’90″ in tribute. Or better yet, watch the video, which is STILL one of my faves.

      • Megan
        +2

        The very first thought to pop into my head when I saw Adam Lambert – “He’s totally channeling George Michael; the *just* post-WHAM version.”

    •  HelenBackAgain
      +5

      I love Adam, but those pants are too short.

      • AmandaD
        +9

        Not just the pants (is he sagging them?), the jacket seems a little too small.

        •  HelenBackAgain
          +7

          Yeah, you’re right, it does. Great deep olive color, but that entire suit is not properly fitted at all.

        • Bambi Anne Dear
          +1

          Indeed, terrible fit all round.

    • Jenz
      +1

      Totally didn’t read the caption and had to go searching for Adam’s pic. Green looks good but the George Michael transmogrification has got to go.

    • Laine
      +2

      But why is Lambert wearing “flood” pants? He looks a bit loony here.

  3. camille
    +11

    I can confirm that that is Billy Ray Cyrus. A girl I grew up with covered the event for… Canadian E!, maybe? and she identified him in a picture as well.

    Also, Corey Feldman looks like he probably smells bad.

    •  Suburbohemian
      +24

      In this picture, Corey Feldman looks like he NEVER smelled good.

      • Nicole
        +7

        I need a time machine so I can go back and have a stern talking to with myself about the picture of Goonies era Feldman on my wall. (Also–so dead on about his likely smelliness, and that really made me laugh.)

  4. Gracey the Giant
    +30

    Brandon Walsh? No, ma’am, Adam is a ringer for Faith-era George Michael in that picture! And George Michael would probably wear that.

    • Hallie
      +11

      I think Lambert looks like Bryan from Color Me Badd, who was himself quite George Michael-ish.

    •  Mel Duff
      +1

      Ha! I just posted nearly identically up – thread.

    •  Kat
      +4

      It could just be the glasses & the nose ring, but all I can see is the offspring of George Michael and Slash

  5. Courtney
    +38

    Is it weird to think that Austin Mahone looks the most age and event appropriate out of all of these guys? The most sane? The most recently showered? I never thought I’d bestow such honors upon the heir to the Bieber Legacy, but there you have it.

    •  HelenBackAgain
      +9

      Austin Mahone is, what, the new tween heartthrob? I think I approve! Nicely clean-cut young man. He could’ve worn a blazer, but he looks good – and, yes, like he’s showered recently.

      • LT1
        +4

        I’ve seen him on some Teen Nick shows and he seems very pleasant on them, I guess it should stop surprising me.

    • katb
      +19

      A pleasant, non-bratty, smiling expression goes a long way to expelling Bieber from our consciousness.

  6.  Lizzy
    +28

    Did Adam Lambert buy his pants at the Juniors department, or maybe shrink them by mistake? Scroll down fug.

    Jared Leto has entered Depp territory with the hotness-defying, quirky clothes overload. This will not end well.

    •  Fawn
      +8

      Yes! Please Jared, stop hiding the hot!

    • Maria L.
      +16

      I cannot stop laughing at Jared Leto’s getup. Jesus in my aunt’s church outfit is not a good look for anyone.

    • Gypsy Danger
      +3

      Oh, but it will end well. He dressed a little more conventionally for awards season, but he always dresses pretty cracked out and has done so since 30STM started. Like Art Eclectic, I also adore him.

      • Laine
        +1

        I think his wardrobe is meant to mask the fact that he pretty much has zero personality. I wish he would go back where he came from.

  7. Kmo
    +10

    Is it just me, or do Adam Lambert’s pants look really uncomfortable? I keep wanting to do a sympathetic squirm.

  8. Amanda
    +24

    This slideshow is the exception that proves the sunglasses theory, eh?

  9.  KarenG958
    +7

    Jessica, that was hilarious. Thank you!

  10.  martinipie

    Sam Palladio looks about ready to tie the heroine to a train track and run away cackling evilly.

    • Jenz
      +2

      Or like he’s about to ‘interview’ the stripper-boots wearing candidate for an ‘opening’ at his law ‘firm’ on top of his desk.

    • Genevieve

      I’m not sure what’s up with him, because he’s usually totally my speed. But this is “yikes” territory.

      • Maisie
        0

        I’m actually getting a James Franco vibe from this version of Palladio. Ya know, now that Franco has entered his sleazy phase.

  11.  ohsohappy

    Jared Leto is unquestionably hot, but his style of late is deterring from that hotness. And that makes me sad.

    •  HelenBackAgain
      +4

      Yeah. I think hiding the hot is the point, but… it’s sad.

    • Erica
      +1

      He is sooooo lucky his hair is dreamy. I’m willing to forgive, but STOP IT.

  12.  Suburbohemian
    +18

    Speaking of the 80′s , Jared Leto is wearing my corporate- worthy maternity wear from that era which he is accessorizing w/ pants as opposed to panti-hose and pumps. Corey Feldman is the love child of Madonna and Joey Ramone. Sam Palladino looks like Simon legree from any decade.

    • Marnie
      +6

      YES! I was just coming here to say he fell out of a Lerner New York circa 1996. Get out of Lerner New York, Jordan Catalano!

    • camille
      +7

      Joey Ramone would be mortified. He is spinning in his grave right now at the very thought.

  13. swimmyfish
    +14

    Is that Billy Ray Cyrus? He looks like the dour uncle of Guy Fieri and in desperate need of some Tums. I think Miley’s shenanigans are taking a toll on him.

    • Laine
      +1

      Actually, the sight of him is making me want to forgive poor Miley for a multitude of sins. Can you imagine having THAT for a dad?

  14.  Pigs in Space
    +8

    Is Jared Leto raiding Betty White’s closet again?

  15.  HelenBackAgain
    +9

    Jared, if you’re going to wear a skirt, commit to it! A skirt does not need pants.

    And, yeah, blue is good for you, but give your mom back her ’90s office jacket.

  16.  Rowynn
    +10

    Jenna Elfman won’t be getting that “Noted Kook” title as long as Jared Leto can still go shopping.

  17. jenelope
    +15

    What the Feldman?!

  18. Marnie
    +10

    Speaking of Brandon Walsh, how excited are you for the Jason Priestly memoir coming out this month? I AM SO EXCITED. My husband and I have this joke where he buys me trashy bios of 90210 stars (I have like, 6 Tori ones it seems like) and I asked for this one for Mother’s Day. Although I’m really holding out for a Luke Perry memoir one day. I love that the cover is not even a current photo, just one of his most 90s, Brandon Walshiest self.

  19. chappy05

    Ha! I thought Cory Feldman was Yoko Ono!

  20.  Chris P
    +3

    PLEASE TELL ME THAT LIL’ JON ISN’T GOING TO BE A THING AGAIN FOR THE LOVE OF CHRIST

    I love my Glambert, but…those pants (those Pants?) and those shoes.

  21.  cg
    +7

    Corey Feldman is looking like k.d. lang …

  22.  MissElaineous
    +10

    Jared Leto: “wait,… this isn’t the Coachella ‘Lost and Found’ tent?”

  23. Remi
    +5

    Pretty sure there was a time when Jared Leto wore skirts over his pants alot. Because I remember someone asking him about it and he said he saw it in Japan where “all the busboys were doing it.”
    I didn’t dislike it particularly back then, but this incarnation isn’t doing him any favors. But the blame is probably shared with some of the other garments he is wearing with this skirt.

  24. that girl

    Poor Corey. He looks so fragile and desperate.

    Not that I watch Seth Myers on a regular basis, but I happened to catch an episode with Lil Jon and Martha Stewart recently and it was the most effed up and bizarre talk show pairing you could ever hope for. Maybe Seth Myers is an evil genius? My biggest takeaway from that episode was how articulate and seemingly intelligent Lil Jon is. I had no idea!

    •  Guerra
      +4

      I’m pretty sure he actually has two college degrees or some equivalent so he’s pretty well educated!

    • Sara
      +5

      Lil Jon was on Celebrity apprentice a few seasons ago and he was my favorite. He’s not only smart, but he’s got the best personality for dealing with all kinds of stressed out jerks like most of the others on that show.

    •  Kristin

      If you want to see another really bizarre talk show pairing, look on YouTube for Gloria Swanson and Janis Joplin on the Dick Cavett show, circa 1970. When amateur sculptor Swanson tells Cavett she’d like to “do his head” and Janis starts cackling, it’s priceless.

    If Billy Ray had an exhibit at Madame Tussaud’s , it would look just like he does in that picture.

    •  Jabes

      He does look suspiciously young, doesn’t he? (He just gives me the shivers, he’s so creepy.)

  26. Erica

    Also, thanks for doing more Man Fugs!

  27.  Sharon
    +4

    I am so confused… The title of this post is “Fugs and Fabs…”
    Where are the FABS???????????????????????
    I only got 7 pictures of stuff that my mother would look at and say, “You ain’t going out in that GARB are you???”
    I mean the kid in all white is passable, barely… but fab??????
    Are you teasing me??? On Friday??? That is not fair.

  28. Lily1214

    Jared Leto: with the money he earns, is that all he could find in his closet to wear?

  29. ceedeegee57

    Adam is wearing what I term the little brother suit.
    Someone thinks this is/looks fashionable (Topman etc)
    they are wrong…
    It looks stupid, like you are wearing your little brothers suit.
    Like mid-drifts, and beige shoes, and illusion netting, and bad taste, get used to it it is here for a while.
    (le sigh)

  30.  Mrbruno

    Corey Feldman is SCAREY looking….he looks a bit waxy like he’s been embalmed… and the outfit…. HELLO? Mesh??? Mutton dressed like lamb? Sorry but even a lamb would look bad in mesh…..

    The others looked fine for the event…crazy musician drag!!!

  31. Sajorina

    Jared = YES! You do you and keep being AWESOME at it! LOVE!!!

    Everyone else = NO!

  32. Laine

    Maybe they thought that since this event was for “radio,” no one would see them.

  33. stacey

    I will never understand the Jared Leto thing. He leaves me totally cold and mostly looks ridiculous.

    •  Kristin
      +2

      His eyes are SO pretty; he definitely does not look hotter in sunglasses.

  34.  heather

    Lil Jon is sporting the most unwrinkled khaki shorts the world has ever seen.
