When Men Wear Women’s Clothes: Cool or Creepy?
If you were watching the VMA’s this past weekend, and stayed long enough to watch Lil Wayne perform, you were probably thinking the same thing we were when it was all over: what the hell was he wearing?
The rapper, now buffer and bigger than in the past thanks to some jail time weight-lifting, somehow found a way to fit into the tightest leopard “pants” ever. We’ll assume they were able to keep from cutting off the circulation in his thighs thanks to the fact that his behind was out. The bottoms were so talked about they became a trending topic on Twitter, and got folks investigating–where did he get them from? After some research, the folks over at Complex reported that Wayne’s bottoms were actually women’s JEGGINGS. Yes, jeggings–aka, the skin tight bottoms used when skinny jeans are just not enough. The brand Tripp NYC confirmed on their Facebook page that his pants were designed by them, and that yes, you could find them in the women’s section through Karmaloop for only $44. As amusing as this information is in some ways, I’m not really surprised. Many big name male celebrities have been rocking women’s clothes and shoes for a minute now, as well as everyday heterosexual men walking the streets today. So it had me thinking…is it weird for a man to occasionally shop in the women’s section to you?
