We’ve officially reached the part of the summer where going outside is practically a part time job. Between the pre-emptive sunscreen, the burns on the back of your thighs from scorching car seats and the sweat that makes it look like you’re wearing a Rorschach test-patterned shirt, what’s the point? You’re just going to have to shower again after the shower you just took.
Unless you’re, like, quite a few A-list stars, actually.
After a week when we learned that Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher wait until they can actually “see the dirt” on their children before making them bathe — with Kunis adding that as a kid growing up in Ukraine she “didn’t shower much anyway” due to a lack of hot water and Kutcher revealing that he only washes his armpits and crotch daily, “and nothing else” — you might be wondering just what is going on?
So was Cardi B. “Wassup with people saying they don’t shower?” she tweeted on Tuesday (August 10) after hygiene hiatuses became a trend, with actress Kristen Bell revealing that she too is a “big fan of waiting for the stink” when it comes to bathing the her daughters, because, after all, “that’s biology’s way of letting you know you need to clean it up.”
“It’s giving itchy,” Cardi added, along with a skeptical face emoji, once again saying what we were all thinking.
For the record, Jake Gyllenhaal joined the B.O. bunch, telling Vanity Fair that “more and more I find bathing to be less necessary.” Perhaps Cardi can cure her case of the itchies by finding solace in the words of the nation’s premiere soap-loving action star: The Rock.
“Nope, I’m the opposite of a ‘not washing themselves celeb,” he tweeted last week after the downpour of hygiene hiatuses. “Shower (cold) when I roll outta bed to get my day rollin’. Shower (warm) after my workout before work. Shower (hot) after I get home from work. Face wash, body wash, exfoliate and I sing (off key) in the shower.”
Wassup with people saying they don’t shower ? 🤨 It’s giving itchy.
