It seems times are tough for everyone nowadays!

Why continue to buy new clothing when you can recycle the same outfits over and over?????

Both Chris Martin of Coldplay and Brandon Flowers of The Killers were repeat offenders at the 2009 Brit Awards on Wednesday night!

Did you think we really wouldn't notice???

Martin donned the same shiteous patchwork jacket ensemble he wore to the Grammy's earlier this month, while Flowers decided it was time to pull the feathered blazer from the 2008 MTV Europe Music Awards out of the closet!

Hope you guys made a trip to the dry cleaners before you wore those memorable jackets again!

    they be so yuk!



  4. 4

    I wish Chris Martin would beat up GOOPY so they'd pull his songs from the radio.



  5. 5

    I doubt these dicks would be experiencing any recession. Just too friggin lazy.



  6. 6

    Both shiteous indeed. Chris Martin is one fugly fucker.

    BFlow has been wearing that jacket since SNL in October. I've been a huge fan for the past 5 years and I know that the boy goes through periods where he has a favorite jacket he wears repeatedly (i.e. the black jacket, pink jacket, snap pants, what have you).

    When you're a musician, you're on tour and you wear things repeatedly.



  8. 8

    i think brandon flowers wore that jacket on SNL too!



  9. 9

    What the hell? I think it's dumb when celebrities get called out on wearing the same thing twice. Who cares if they want to wear it again, it's their money, maybe they don't feel the need to spend all their moeny on clothes. Just because you have money doesn't mean you need to own an outfit for every day of the year. I think it's good that they can be more humble. I do have to say that the jacket at the bottom is hideous and should never been worn even once to begin with.



  10. 10

    err perez…these jackets are a part of the theme of their new album.
    i personally think chris's jacket is AWESOME! i'd wear it.
    brandon's jacket….ehhhh not so much…



  11. 11

    Oh my god did the world stop spinninng?
    Why oh why would anyone wear the same thing twice
    My poor eyes

    Frankly who gives a shit



  12. 12

    Re: Jubilee Is Now Straitjacket Free – No shit! But Chris Martin looks like too big a fucking pu$$y. GOOPy would destroy him.

    Who the fuck cares whether they wore it 2x. That's so fucking ridiculous. On a side note, both of those are so butt fucking ugly I don't know why they'd wear them 1x.



  14. 14

    They are HOT! So what if they wore the same clothes before…



  15. 15

    P.S. Brandon Richard Flowers the Mormon > Stephenie Meyer the Mormon



  16. 16

    Oh my dear God, are u an idiot Perez? That is like the point, to wear those jackets! Chris and Brandon both have those jackets on their music videos, that's the look. Perez seriously, get your shit together and start writing about interesting stuff. Oh, and leave your personal opinions aside, coz, you know, NO ONE CARES.



  17. 17

    DON'T EVER FUCKING PUT CHRIS MARTIN PICS WITH THE AMAZING BRANDON FLOWERS!
    AND WTF, NOT EVERYONE IS GAY AND NEEDS A NEW OUTFIT FOR EVERY FUCKING THING!
    BRANDON WEARS THAT JACKET ALL THE TIME, IT'S LIKE HIS TRADEMARK!
    just how being a fat loser is yours
    HA



  18. 18

    Chris Martin and Brandon Flowers are HOT!!!



  19. 19

    if they like it, who cares?



  20. 20

    :/ who cares if they wear the same thing again? it's good to see them reusing the same clothes and saving money! it's what they should be doing!



  21. 21

    Do you think these two cares if someone notice that they wear the same thing twice. Idiocy.



  22. 22

    ha, chris didn't even change undershirts



  23. 23

    i dont wear my fucking jackets just once and throw them away either you fuckwad,………your a FAT fucker perez



  24. 24

    Oh so sorry that us "REGULAR" people have to wear the same clothes more then once. SCREW YOU!



  25. 25

    that jacket is like brandons trademark, he wears it like all the time now



  26. 26

    I have no problem with it!



  27. 27

    Re: M*I*A*R – I think if he called her an ugly fat ass that would knock her on her ass. He'd have to use words to hurt her.

    28

    So? It's a costume….they can be worn more than once. *rolls eyes*



  29. 29

    While the clothing is awful, I find it refreshing to see celebs wearing clothes more than once. It's so wasteful when they wear it once and never again. Kudos to them!



  30. 30

    I think the whole POINT was to PROMOTE wearing things again because of the recession…
    Plus that is Brandons trademark.
    Maybe you should think before posting next time, eh Perez?



  31. 31

    A jacket is expected to be warn many times. At least Brandon has a different shirt under it and I like his jacket.



  32. 32

    Did I really spell "warn" when I should have put "worn"?
    Guess the meds are working after all.



  33. 33

    dont hate Perez. I respect that even people with a lot more money than the normal person is wearing the same clothes like most people do.



  34. 34

    Dear Perezito… STOP BEING PART OF THE PROBLEM… it truthfully is people in your position that puts in the minds of the young impressionable consumers (read: our FUTURE…) that they need to have far to much shit in their closet… try for once being part of the SOLUTION…..



  35. 35

    i think its good they reuse things that always bothered me that they wore sumthing 1nce then nevr wore it again



  36. 36

    oh god coldplay is currently on tour what is he suppose to do pull a tuxedo out of his ass?

    and stfu jubilee coldplay is the best



  37. 37

    First of all, they both look great so stop hating, Perez!
    Second of all, I don't know about Chris, but Brandon wears that jacket pretty regularly. It's part of his look for Day & Age, just like he had that white, fabulous blazer for Hot Fuss. It's just part of the image that the band likes to keep up for every album. I love how The Killers are constantly changing their look!



  38. 38

    Who fucking cares if they wore the same outfit. What's your fucking problem, Perez?



  39. 39

    That jacket looks great with Chris martin's eyes. Who cares if he wears it more than once?



  40. 40

    Some one needs to call out Perez for wearing the same face more than once. I mean really.

    I think it is great that they are not feeling pressured to go buy a new outfit for every event they attend. Hello, excessive consumer consumption anyone?

    Perez, give 2 shits more about the planet and do a real story instead of making me waste my electricity on boring non stories.



  41. 41

    Perez, you're such an idiot sometimes. The look that Brandom Flowers and ChrisMartin have, are the looks that are for their current album. That's why they keep wearing them, you idiot. Once they come out with a new album their look will probably change again.



  42. 42

    i think celebrities economizing by using things more than ONE TIME is a great thing. they are wasteful people usually, its amazing that these pieces got to be worn twice at all. & also, i think those jackets are sweeeet and i would wear one all the time.



  43. 43

    Ever heard of being eco-friendly, Perez? One environmentally friendly strategy is to re-use whenever possible. This includes clothes. Do you wish their jackets end up in a landfill just because they've worn it once? Think a bit, Perez. BTW - you are a treadmill fatty!



  44. 44

    Who gives a fuck? They are both hot! and not gay so they don't care if they were the same thing twice. they are real men!



  45. 45

    This is stupid. yeah, i said it. stupid. more celebrities need to recycle and think.



  46. 46

    The guy from the killers has worn that jacket a million times, and it isn't even cute. In fact, it's really stupid. He wore it on SNL too, I think. Maybe he's just wearing very similar jackets a lot, but he could at least vary the color of the feathers or color of the jacket if he is actually wearing different ones.



  47. 47

    HEY you wanna know what!
    Martin can wear that jacket as many times as he wants, Sgt. Pepper can never go out of style.
    But as for Flowers……continue on with the making fun of. I think he seriously killed a bird (or two) to make that jacket. How dare he!

    i love chris martin :)



  49. 49

    Flowers jacket feathers appear to have grown..so that makes it a different coat now…plus, it's the coolest envirothang to do pnaaaazz!! get with the friggin program…reusable fashion is WHERE IT'S AT DUDE :) !! If I was a famous person, I would totally wear the same things the way I do now…it's earth friendly…and a good example for us sheep…now be a sheep and shut up!!



  50. 50

    I liked them! :)
    They're 'stage' clothes



  51. 51

    I find it offensive when celebrities don't wear the same clothes multiple times, reduce, reuse, recycle. To continue to promote a consumer society is irresponsible and rather pathetic. We can do better.



  52. 52

    good for both of them. who gives a shit about fashion when the economy sucks



  53. 53

    Who really gives a crap if they wear the same jacket twice? There are starving kids in the world and this is what people care about?



  54. 54

    Chris Martin is adorable. And, I love his homemade clothes. The jacket he has with the stripes is better though. How can you not love him Perez?!!!!



  55. 55

    Brandon looks a little on the skinny side



  56. 56

    Brandon Flowers can come anyway he wants! Love him.



  57. 57

    OMG OMG THEY WORE THEIR CLOTHES 2 DIFFERENT TIMES!! AS IF!!!! whaaaoooooahaaggg !!! aaiiiiy what is the world coming tooooo?!?!

    omfucking god who cares. big deal. ive worn my pairs of jeans 20 times each. UH OH!!!!! Some of my clothes are from when I was in grade 7. Honestly havent grown much since. what u got to say bout that huh



  58. 58

    wow, you're an idiot.
    The get-ups are the bands theme.
    Not just Chris Martin, but COLDPLAY have costumes which they wear on tour and tv appearances.

    How are times tough for them if they took in 85 mil last year?

    woah, i just got really passionate about that…damn



  59. 59

    I've already been complaining about Brandon Flowers' feather jacket. He's worn it multiple times before this. Even though I liked it at first, it's boring now. With the money he has, he could have at least bought four of five of these jackets in different colors.



  60. 60

    Chris Martin is so hot!!! And that blue jacket goes with his eyes!!!!!
    He's my dream man!



  61. 61

    So they wore the same coat, big deal! It's just an awards show. Maybe, instead of criticizing them, we should be applauding them for not wasting money like water, like a lot of other celebrities are doing in this time of crisis.



  62. 62

    Coldplay are too old to be dressing up - they look stupid when they try and match their costumes.

  63. Eva says – reply to this


    63

    Gotta confess, i wear my jackets more than once too. Bad me



  64. 64

    Why wouldn't they brand themselves? It makes sense, and it's what their fans are used to. The recession has nothing to do with this. They are known for their costumes. What's the big deal?



  65. 65

    Hey dumbass, that is Brandons trademark jacket for the Day & Age album. He wears it to EVERY event and also for the first song at every show. He wore it on SNL, his FUSE show, MTV awards, etc.



  66. 66

    YOU REALLY NEED HELP STUPID BLOGGER these jackets are a part of the theme of their new album.



  67. 67

    I think that they are both adorable. Who really cares if they wore the same jacket?



  68. 68

    I look hot



  69. 69

    Chris Martin has been wearing that same shirt since the launch of his new album. As for Brandon Flowers, he wore that same one in the Human video.



  70. 70

    Fuck Brandon Flowers! I just hate him…

  71. AMO says – reply to this


    71

    Re: cassafrass – Ya he did. Once was enough!



  72. 72

    Brandon has been wearing that jacket since the SNL performance in October and it is part of the Day & Age look. Each album includes a specific look just like Sam's Town had the moustache and Hot Fuss had the guyliner. If you got a custom made Dolce & Gabanna jacket I bet you'd be wearing it as much as possible too.

    And talking about recession chic…. Lady Gaga also seems to wear the same stuff over and over again but you never say anything about that or that hideous lavender lipstick.



  73. 73

    Brandon has been wearing that Jacket Forever!
    He wore it on SNL, he wore it in the Human video and he wears it on tour.
    I almost died when I saw him prancing around in it, in Chicago. That jacket it amazing, and so what if he loves to wear it! I wear my clothes more than once, why can't Brandon and Chris Martin re-wear their jackets, it makes them more human. I know if I had an awesome feathered jacket like Mr. B-flow himself I would wear it every day of my life…maybe.



  74. 74

    FYI Brandon Flowers wears that jacket for every concert the band does…..i dont care…the boy looks hot!



  75. 75

    Be realistic perez! It doesn't make sense to wear something once and throw it out



  76. 76

    PEREZ! i love you, but seriously. don't hate on Chris Martin's jacket.. The jacket is part of the whole "look" that they are going for right now.It looks amazing when they perform. DONT HATEEEE
