Everyone Knows J. Lo


Josh and I were catching up on episodes of Lip Sync Battle (again, if you’re not watching, you should be!) last weekend and Josh decided to show off his pop culture knowledge by naming everyone on stage. I tried to grab a quick photo of what we were watching and who was on stage:

20150425_112915From left to right, Josh pointed at the screen and named each celebrity as follows:

Josh: “Okay, that’s Tia Tequila…”

Me: “It’s TiLA Tequila and that’s definitely not her. That’s Chrissy Teigen. She’s married to John Legend? I told you that when he was on this same show last week.”

Josh: “Then the girl from The Devil Wears Prada.”

Me: “Nope. Again. That was the girl on this show from a few weeks ago, Anne Hathaway. This is Anna Kendrick. From Pitch Perfect?”

Josh: “Then Jennifer Lopez, everyone knows J. Lo – Enough, Maid in Manhattan, The Wedding Planner. She’s awesome.”

Josh: : “L.L. – N.C.I.S. – L.A.”

Josh: “The Office and Chuck.”

Me: “Again, still not Chuck. His actual name is John Krasinski. Chuck Bartowski was a character in a show and played by Zachary Levi.”

The reason I kept saying “again” is because I promise you I have answered these exact “who is that?” questions in the past.

Now, I’m aware some of you may not know who some of these people are either, because I’m not in your living room to repeat myself every single day. So, to review:

Teigen and Tila

These are not the same people.

These are also not the same people.

These are also not the same people.

And these are not the same people.

Also not the same people.

I purposely tried to choose photos in which both celebrities looked alike – enough to see Josh’s confusion. The sticking point in his pop culture fail is the number of times I answer him on who is who. It is at the point where I can’t watch Game of Thrones with him anymore because he doesn’t remember any of the characters, faces, plot lines…It makes for a frustrating hour of television.

In conclusion, later that same day we went and saw a movie.

In which, John Mayer has a cameo:

Josh leans over and whispers: “He’s married to Tia Tequila.”

They could be twins.

They could be twins.

But the good news is I never have to help him identify a J. Lo film!

What celebrities do you always mix up? Should I do an entire post comprised of the numerous celebrities Josh always misidentifies?
