Pretty Boy Swag: Celebrity Men Who Are More High Maintenance Than Their Women

January 4, 2013  |  

Have you ever thought that some men were prettier than their women, and if not prettier than at least more high maintenance? It might be their grooming or their mannerisms, or maybe even something you just can’t quite put your finger on, but trust me, you know the feeling.

Before you get to clicking I should probably say that there’s real no concrete evidence that any of these men are prima donnas, but based on appearances – which are sometimes telling and sometimes not – these fifteen celebs seem to fit the bill. Of course “pretty” is a matter of opinion here, but feel free to throw yours about these pretty boy floyds in the comments section below.

 

Prince

Prince

Prince and his girlfriend Bria Valente may look a lot alike – thanks to their surgeon I suppose, but I dare say Prince is the prettier of the two, and considering his eccentricity – probably the more high maintenance of the two as well. Prince must not only be barbered to perfection, but also made up to perfection, hair styled to perfection, and clothed to perfection. And perfection ain’t easy, or quick.

"Kanye West and Kim Kardashian PF"

Kanye West

Kanye West may be dating Kim Kardashian (who we already know takes forever to get ready), but I’m nearly 100% sure he still takes more time than she does. Have you ever noticed how pressed and polished his outfits always are? How perpetually glow-y his skin is? And don’t even get me started on that hair and beard line. Even celebrity hairstylist Dean Banowetz has commented that Kanye is “barbered within an inch of his life!”

Michael Ealy

When I first saw pictures of Michael Ealy and new wife Khatira Rafiqzada together, I admit that I definitely thought Michael to be the prettier of the two… and still do.

"Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough PF"

Ryan Seacrest

While Julianne Hough is pretty, Ryan Seacrest is polished, perfectly. Whether he’s hosting American Idol or On Air With Ryan Seacrest, producing some reality TV show or conducting an interview, he’s always put together. And always being put together takes time. We know this.

"Tyson Beckford and Shanina PF"

Tyson Beckford

Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik had nothing on Tyson Beckford back when they were dating: Tyson is prettier, a more experienced model, and a more (seemingly) high maintenance person in general. I say this because he always looks model-perfect and is always quick to brag about his own modeling feats. Earlier this year, Tyson even went so far as to take credit for “creating” Shaik, by getting – and I quote – “her teeth cleaned [and] her body toned up.”

They broke up after that.

Drake

Drake can act as hard as he wants, but we all know he loves him some mirror: the rapper is often photo’d primping and posing without shame, and probably more than many of his “model” girlfriends do. But it’s not like we’re that surprised considering how near-perfectly Drake is barbered and how superbly polished his outfits are (I’m talking when he’s dressed up, not down).

"David and Victoria Beckham PF"

David Beckham

Could the secret to David and Victoria Beckham’s successful marriage be love… and David’s prettiness? You never know. Victoria is one glamour girl, but something tells us David takes extra special time getting his coif gelled an slicked up all perfect like.

"Soulja Boy and Diamond PF"

Soulja Boy

I assume that releasing “Pretty Boy Swag” was meant to be some kind of a declaration – though I’m not sure I would’ve pegged Soulja Boy as being a Pretty Boy prior to that. Still, he has worn some eccentric outfits that generally outshine his girlfriend Diamond’s.

"Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez PF"

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber easily outshines current on-again girlfriend Selena Gomez with his little boy prettiness. I’m just sayin’… He really is a beautiful boy.

Miguel

Miguel may not be quite as pretty as his fiancé Nazanin Mandi, but with his bouffant hairstyles, intricate clothing, and – what I swear – is some kind of powder for that perfect skin, I’d say he probably takes longer to get ready than she does.

"John Legend and Chrissy PF"

John Legend

Chrissy Tiegen may be beautiful, but John Legend, with his dewy skin and delicate features, is just as pretty in my eyes.

"Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart PF"

Robert Pattinson

There seems to be a general consensus that Robert Pattinson is a pretty boy. He’s often praised for his appearance (including his groomed eyebrows) and always seems to make best dressed lists – Kristen Stewart not so much.

"Jordin Sparks and Jason PF"

Jason Derulo

Jason Derulo seems so much more high maintenance than his girlfriend Jordin Sparks. Think about it. While Jordin tends to go for more modest looks, Jason opts for gold suits, spiked vests, and red hair. Yeah, much more high maintenance.

Diddy and Cassie

Diddy

Diddy definitely appears to be more high maintenance than Cassie. He’s always spotted wearing some outfit to some event and parading about like he’s God’s gift to the world. The man regularly sports 360 waves and fur coats. What more do you need to know?

"Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz PF"

Swizz Beatz

Swizz Beatz is so well barbered it’s ridiculous, which is why I’ve always thought he was the type to spend a lot of time getting ready – more time even than his superstar wife Alicia Keys. And actually, I think Swizz may be the better dresser. What do you think?

  • I like for there to be a happy medium. Not a dirty, stinky man or one that wouldn’t be caught in public without hair gel, but somewhere in the middle. Gross hog-like men aren’t attractive and mannequin pretty boys aren’t attractive either.

  • saintsinno

  • angeli1302@yahoo.com

    Whoever wrote this needs to be fired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Prince isn’t with Bria anymore and it’s been years!!!!

  • theone

    Im high maintenance and i think a men should take pride in our appearance

    • First you need to go back to grammar school. Until then no one is taking you or your comment seriously.

      • theone

        that was cruel, but anyway i made the necessary corrections for your viewing pleasure.

  • Kaori

    I don’t think these men are ‘high maintenance’ per se, but rather they just have very striking features that make them seem ‘pretty’ instead of rough.

  • Negress

    “Please don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful.”

  • Yay!

    Interesting. This post could also be called Celebrity men and their “Beards.” All these men including Alicia have been rumored to be in false relationships to cover gay. Except for Prince who I’ve always believed is straight. Prince was genius for playing into his feminine qualities. The music is legend and he is SOOO animated, he made it cool for men to be fem.

  • Chassie

    high maintenance, nope, I just think they are generally prettier than their women

  • TRUTH IS

    Cus they are undercover f@g$

    • Jessica

      *cosign*

  • RJA

    I LOVE a man that takes pride in his appearance (skin care, clean manicured nails, etc.)… Just don’t overdo it

  • V

    Wait…Ryan Seacrest is straight?!

    • Candacey Doris

      So far.

  • Sagittarius81

    This list makes me so glad my fiance isn’t high maintenance at all, he even hates high maintenance women.

    • realadulttalk

      I’ve never met a high maintenance man who wanted to date me–or any of my friends–or any people born with vagina’s. IJS Lol

  • pickneychile

    How is Mario Lopez not on this list!? He’s the definition of a man that’s too pretty/prettier than his lady.
