This is what it's come to...
In this era of pop stars *cough*Gaga*cough* prancing about in outfits looking like they got separated from the parade floats of Carnivale, the casual viewer has come to expect one thing only: the unexpected.
There's a blinking array of lights coming from that woman's crotch-area? "Must be Gaga."
That lady over there is wearing a metallic, robotic hand-piece? "Beyonce's in town."
You just saw a girl dressed like a mentally challenged safari animal? "I LOVE Ke$ha. Where is she?"
... No worries! Here she is!
Anyway, the point is: it's been pretty easy to become accustomed to the ridiculousness of it all.
Embrace it, even.
That is why, when I looked at this picture of Mena Suvari exiting a restaurant, the first thing that came to my mind was:
"Ooh, I kinda love the plant-like headpiece! That's very daring of her. It almost looks like a collar, how its coming up from the back of her neck like that!"
...Then I took another look...
And realized that she is just walking in front of a potted plant.
... Uh, yeah.
I blame everyone but myself.
