Separated at Beard: Michael Stipe & David Letterman

So fucked up

A post shared by @michaelstipe on

David Letterman is on the cover of New York Magazine this week. He’s inside it too, a big feature interview that hits on how he’s taking to retirement, Donald Trump (who he calls “Trumpy”), the election, and how his new bearded look gets him mistaken for Chuck Close and Walt Whitman (who died 125 years ago). It’s a lengthy entertaining conversation and you can read the whole thing here.

Michael Stipe, who also sports a big bushy beard these days, couldn’t help but notice his resemblance to Dave and offered up the above instagram with the commentary “so fucked up.” Michael also lent his beard (or part of it) to Cate Blanchet, which you can see below.

Stipe produced Fischerspooner’s forthcoming new album, and is talking returning to music.

CATE BLANCHETT !!! Beyond brilliant. #cateblanchett
