This is a paparazzi photo of Kate Hudson walking with her friend, Matt Bellamy, in what is clearly a very strong contender for the title of Mr. Cool Disguise. Hahahhaha. Uh, take it easy, Matt Bellamy, NO ONE EVEN KNOWS WHO YOU ARE! (OK, I guess that’s not true. I googled Matt Bellamy and he’s in that band Muse? Do you guys listen to that band? Who listens to that band? Whatever, Matt Bellamy. Either way take this dumb old bag off your stupid face.) Looking at this photo, you just know that Matt Bellamy was totally the dude who got, like, one of his songs played one time at 3AM on a college radio station and immediately stopped talking to all his friends because he just “needed to be around people who understood the pressure he was under.” This guy. Meanwhile, what is even the point of this picture? If anything, Kate Hudson should be the Mrs. Cool Disguise, but she’s pure class ever since she starred in Bride Wars and/or Le Divorce. When two celebrities want to keep their private life a secret, they will do that thing where they walk two steps behind each other outside of a restaurant, which is already kind of silly, but at the same time it is increasingly difficult for famous people to guard their privacy, but at what point is someone like “this is exhausting, I think the solution is to put this plastic bag on my head and tear only one eye hole.” Like, you’re going to go to the trouble of putting a bag over your face, but you’re not going to go to the trouble of PUTTING ON AN ADULT STYLE OF PANTS? “Please, no photos, I am on my way to a pickup game of crab soccer” Kate Hudson is probably calling her mom in this photo. “Mom, you’ll never guess who I’m with. Yes, Mr. Cool Disguise. Good guess. You’re Goldie Hawn!” (Via Zimbio. Thanks for the tip, Patricia.)

P.S. YO, KATE HUDSON, THE FUCK IS ON YOUR FEET?

  1. I found this picture to be very a-muse-ing.

  2. Celebrities – they’re just like toddlers who accidentally asphyxiate themselves!

  3. You guys, you are falling for their trap. His baghead is meant to be a diversion so we won’t notice her toe shoes.

  4. Muse is my dad’s favorite band. If I was Matt Bellamy, that would be enough reason for me to put a bag on my head.

    • i don’t get Muse. they literally came out of nowhere. i first heard of them when they just all of the sudden started headlining festivals and then Glenn Beck loves them and “oh, they’re huge in Europe…”

      and it seems lots of older people like them…i’ve heard like 4 of there songs and just. dont. get it.

      • I haven’t heard enough of them to have a real opinion, but my dad has historically terrible taste in music so I just assume they’re awful.

        • they’re not bad, i just still don’t see how they’re so popular, got so big without me hearing of them*, and don’t get how/why old people seem to have heard of them and liked them so much.

          * i realize this sounds like a dickish, know-it-all comment, but it’s like they’re arcade fire at the grammy’s and i’m rosie o’donnell. i just don’t get how it’s possible to be on that high of a level without a person who follows these things pretty closely had never heard of them or their music.

          • Late 90s / early-aughts = pretty old. Like, Radiohead old. Generally, they seem to be big in England and nobodies here.

            You gotta remember that that was before the great internet hype era, when people read Spin magazine and browsed the CD shelves at Tower Records and shit. It was really possible to get into a cool band that seemed pretty big (because they had a major-label contract) but your friends didn’t know them at all. Like Soul Coughing, or Clinic, or something.

          • I really like their album “Absolution.”

            Having said that, I haaaate the plastic-bag-Mr.-Cool-Disguises so much. At the very least, they’re not environmentally friendly! Douchey on so many levels. Doubly douchey.

      • I am surprised Muse is big with dads. But that makes sense, they have kind of a 70s-80s sound, like this huge swooping ambitious space-operatic prog-mess that kind of rocks. No one really goes for that anymore. It is very evident in “Knights of Cydonia,” which really swings for the fences and is probably my favorite video of all time.

        I think Muse is okay. I play them in the background sometimes but couldn’t name more than two of the songs.

        • As a fan of Muse for ten years I can solve this riddle.

          Matt Bellamys Dad was a member of the band The Tornados, who were big in the 60s. Their hit Telstar was in fact the first british song becoming #1 in the US. That was 62.

          Muses Knights of Cydonia is a big reference to Telstar, so probably many dads out there got reminded of their attempts to dance to this song with these weird “synthies”, whatever magic stuff that is. There you have it.

          (And just like every fan-for-a-decade of every band ever, I don’t like their latest stuff because it’s not club music but stadium music now.)

      • I discovered muse at the Norehbongs in Korea. They are on every karaoke machine over there.

  5. The photographer still knew who he was, so…what’s his game? Does he think the camera will steal his soul? Zit on the end of his nose? Is he a vampire working on ways to walk in the daylight? Your bag only deepens my interest in you, guy-who-I’ve-never-heard-of.

  6. Kate is fittingly dressed as a bag lady, so I guess this makes sense.

  7. what’s with kate hudson and dating musicians?

  8. He’s British, right? I assume he just tweeted some timely Family Guy references and is trying to avoid deportation.

  9. “Please, Mr. Cool Disguise is my father. Call me Matt.”

  10. this: “one of his songs played one time at 3AM on a college radio station and immediately stopped talking to all his friends because he just ‘needed to be around people who understood the pressure he was under.’” made me LOLL(oudly)

  11. Stop making fun of Matt Bellamy’s condition where his head is a plastic bag it’s tough with Wes Bentley always filming him

  13. I can’t wait to hear how this is deployed as a metaphor in his next hit single. “Only one eye can see/ Through this plastic world around me.”

  15. OMG WAT THE FUK U GUYS MUSE IS OMG SO GR8 THAT ONE SONG WHERE HE SINGS LIKE THOM YORKE AND THE DRUMS GO BUMBUMBUMBBUM AND THE BASS IS ALL DOODOODOOODOOO FUZZZZZZZZZ AND THE PIANO IS LIKE PLING PLING AND THE GUITAR IS LIKE SCREEEEEEEEECH WAT THE FUK IS UR PROBLEM>!>?!?!???!?!?!?!!!!1111?!?!1

  16. Actresses have bad taste in bands to be band-girlfriends with.

  17. That gives me an idea for a blog! It shall be a cross between Pitchfork and Millionaire Matchmaker.

  18. Honestly, Kate Hudson always seemed like the type of celebrity to shop at Waitrose, not Tesco.

  19. Just so we’re clear, Muse is basically a bad, The Bend’s-era Radiohead plus piano, right? And whinier, with more sci-fi nerd appeal? Definitely appalling, for sure.

  20. THIS ISTHE SILLIEST THING I`VE EVER READ. MUSE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST BAND EVER AND YOU JUST DON`T KNOW WHAT TO WRITE ABOUT. I THINK YOU DON`T EVEN DESERVE EARS.

  21. I know this board is already overlong, but can I just say the joke that everyone’s probably thinking?

    PAPER OR PLASTIC?

    hahahhalol

  22. She dumped the guy from the Black Crowes for the elephant man?

  23. I like to think that Kate Hudson is taking a picture with her iPhone in this photo, that way all her friends can see what a cool boyfriend she has

  24. I shall refrain from comment lest approximately 17 billion Twilight fans thrash me into a very unattractive canine carcass.

  25. Almost Famous + Too Goddamn Famous, Apparently = Internet Famous

  26. That would be a Tesco bag on his head, which makes me think this is not a disguise at all, but rather an uninspired Rubberbandits costume.

  27. I have to applaud all the ridiculing that this picture has generated. And I totally agree with all of the trashing. However, I have to give props to Kate Hudson for being cool enough to go out in public wearing the best fucking shoes ever invented. Vibram five fingers!!

  28. “Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world, I feel I can’t take it.” – All of us seeing that plastic bag.

    • I’m sorry they aren’t Fastball or Everclear, you know bands with talent

      • I guess if they aren’t featured on stereogum or pitchfork theyre irrelevant.

        • Yeah no, I just can’t take them seriously. They dress too nicely and lack facial hair. And I don’t like bands that rock, really, I prefer them to shamble.

          But maybe if you explained them to me I’d come around. Are they, like, earnest? Do they mean the stuff they sing about? Or is it like a joke that their fans are in on? I like bands that are jokes.

  30. litterally just testing this here man[strike]

  31. nope….trying again [strike]man[strike]

  32. {strike}man

  33. [STRIKE]man
