It's easy to forget that celebrities are still people. People who could crush you on a whim, but still. They have their non-crushing hopes, dreams, and hobbies, and sometimes those things are bizarre. And sometimes those bizarre interests end up on Instagram for everyone to enjoy. Because when you do something weird online, it's just creepy; when the rich and famous do it, it's adorable. Like how ...
Hugh Jackman, like many older men, enjoys whiling away the hours with jigsaw puzzles. A good puzzle can make "evening oatmeal and grump at the news" time arrive before you know it, and when it's complete, your hours of hard work are rewarded with a picture identical to the one that was already on the box. What's not to love? You can keep up with Hugh's jigsaw progress on his Instagram, along with updates on his films and which butterscotch candy brands he's giving to his visiting grandchildren these days ...
Britney Spears spends half of her time on Instagram reminding you of why you had a crush on her when you were growing up ...
... and he dresses like a PSA about midlife crises.
You can almost hear Drake pleading "Daaad, you're embarrassing me!" just looking at it.
Pink, aka P!nk, aka "Yes, I'm claiming an entire color, deal with it," rose to prominence by starting the most early 2000s party ever. But it's tough to keep starting parties once you've acquired two kids and a nagging pain in your back, which is why her brand has moved from "wild don't-give-a-fuck fun lover" to "perpetually exhausted but upbeat mom who tries to include her kids in everything."
So like half of your social media feeds, Pink is mostly about her kids, but unlike most of your social media acquaintances, Pink is loaded and seemingly on one long, never-ending tour to bring her music to wooing fans around the world. As a result, her kids get to play rock star every day.
Noted immortal Mick Jagger has eight children, five grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and more pull at 75 than most of us did in our 20s. And while Jagger is the archetype of a rocker who will never stop rocking, he's gone full dad on his son Lucas' Instagram.
"Looks like fun," Jagger pointlessly comments, presumably while waiting for the crowd demanding his encore to prove their love and take it up a few decibels. Jagger is one slow afternoon of award-polishing away from calling up all of his progeny and asking about the status of their refrigerators.
What do you even say in response to that? You just have to keep quietly getting trolled by Mick Jagger until he returns to his home planet on the stroke of his 175th birthday.
Be like Hugh Jackman. Try a new jigsaw puzzle.
