The Best Celebrity Easter Plans: Dog Costumes, Twitter Jokes, & Zoo Visits
So by now, you all probably know what you're up to for Easter — or if you don't, I mean, it's a little late: Maybe you're decorating eggs, or shame-eating whole boxes of Peeps, or ignoring the holiday altogether to celebrate other important vernal rites, such as 4/20 (which, let's be real, probably also involves whole boxes of Peeps). But here's something I bet you don't know: how your favorite celebrities chose to mark the occasion.
Sure, you could probably guess the overall themes — there were pastels, and adorable children to wear them; there was chocolate, and adorable faces to cram it into; there were rabbit ears, and not just the kind you held up behind your friend's head at every photo op in 2003. But we both know those are mere generalities, dear Reader, vague graspings at the conceptual ideal that is this springiest of spring holidays. You demand the truth, and the truth you shall have. So, without further ado, here are a few choice ways that famous folk chose to commemorate bunnies and the resurrection.
Prince William and Kate Middleton head down under — and hang at the zoo.
Apparently, Will, Kate, and baby George spent a sunny day in Sydney, Australia, first attending mass, then hopping over to the Taronga Zoo. Not only did Geroge apparently get to skip church, making him the envy of squirmy, starchily-dressed toddlers the land over, but he also got to visit a real live Easter bunny that the zoo named after him, making him the envy of, like, everyone.
Miley really, really wishes she was stoned.
Adrift in a sea of Emojis, Miley reminded us of her currently waylaid state, still hospitalized and still tweeting about it. Today, though, things are even worse. No weed on 4/20?! You guys, she is so upset she forgot how to spell "past." Wackkkkkkkkkkkkkk, indeed.
Chris O'Dowd Makes a Topical Joke.
The actor currently playing Lenny in the Broadway production of Of Mice and Men put a clever spin on his character's most tragic (and, for some of us young readers, fully traumatizing) moment: when he accidentally kills a bunny by hugging it too hard. (Didn't anyone ever tell you, Lenny — if you love them, let them go!) In this case, though, the bunny is chocolate, so I don't feel all that bad about it.
John Mayer makes a crass pun.
Nope. Absolutely not. Not ever, not in a million years, not even if it's gold-plated.
Miranda Cosgrove makes cooler eggs than you.
It's just the truth. I am kind of desperate to know who the one with the long blonde hair and the bejeweled bust — lower right hand corner — is supposed to be. (Is it weird that my first thought was Shakira? Anyone?)
Carly Rae Jepsen puts her dog through this fresh hell.
Fight through it, brave pup. Cuteness is pain.
And finally, a personal favorite:
Mathu Andersen proves, once again, that he wins Instagram.
If you're as obsessed with the sometime RuPaul's Drag Race music video director / all-the-time make-up artist as I am, then there's a good chance you already saw his fabulous Easter offering, "The Ragged Rabbit Resurrection." If you aren't, then I suggest you head to Instagram and follow him immediately, for a steady stream of images that are as gorgeous are they are imaginative, tongue in cheek and polished to a T and eminently, fabulously bearded. Behold the Rabbit, below:
