I know that picture is supposed to make me jump out of my asshole, but I think he looks faaaaaaabulous in that harlequin baby doll dress! Bitch looks like a cross between Jackie Stallone as Queen Elizabeth I and Carrot Top as a dancer in Madge’s MTV VMAs performance of Vogue. I want to party with that trick.
And if you’ve never seen BSkars out of that clown costume, here he is with his girlfriend at the NYC premiere of Allegiant in March.
