Celebrity Fashion Review: Summer Frumps

August 7th, 2008 10:34am EDT
Bai Ling
The Black Eyed Peas were very successful with their smash hit single "My Humps." So let's sing the following lines to the beat of the main chorus of that song (if you know it). Why? Because some celebrities can at times be major fashion disasters, and it just seemed fitting to belt out these original lyrics in their honor:

"My junks! My junks! My messy summer frumps! My boring summer dress, no guy is gonna look. My pointless grayish suit, no woman's gonna drool. My tacky rolled up jeans. I look like a hot mess. My messy summer frumps! My messy summer frumps! In the back and in the...

Bee Gee Robin Gibb's house is haunted. The singer is convinced he's sharing the 12th century mansion in Thame Park, Oxfordshire - which used to be a monastery - with the spirit of a gardener that keeps playing tricks on his family.
