What's in Matthew McConaughey's Fanny Pack?

View Comments(0)

Matthew McConaughey is single-handedly trying to bring back the fanny pack. And, I guess, if ever there were a person to try, Matthew McConaughey is the man for the job.

It started when he was spotted at Fenway Park wearing a fanny pack. Was this fashion choice ironic? Was it legit? The only way to find out was to ask. McConaughey revealed that he's totally serious about his fanny packs, guys.

In the interview, he said: "I'm not afraid of the fanny pack. Instead of stuffing your pockets... you kind of got to put it on the side to make it look a little not-as-nerdy, but still, practicality wins out. I've got so much gear in here that I don't want in my pockets, I'm not afraid of the fanny pack."

TicketNetwork.com has definitely been a proponent of fanny packs (we even hosted a "Bring Back the Pack" contest back in the day). Thankfully, McConaughey is doing the legwork for us.

But what's inside of that fanny pack? Here are some of my theories...

Celebrities You Didn't Know Were Related

There are some famous celebrity relatives it seems like everyone knows, from Owen and Luke Wilson to Beyonce and Solange Knowles. And yet, as much as we talk about celebrities, there are still some connections that slip under our radar. So here are a few related celebs you probably didn't know about.

Snoop Dogg and Brandy/Ray J

Most are privy to the fact that singers Brandy and Ray J are siblings — but who knew they were also first cousins with Snoop Dogg (AKA Snoop Lion)?

Are Jay Z and Beyonce Divorcing? (A Complete Guide)

Are Jay Z and Beyonce Divorcing

It's a question many have been wondering, especially since the elevator incident: are Jay Z and Beyonce splitting up? Here, I'll break down everything surrounding the billionaire couple, rumors, speculation, and fans included, so you can become the resident Jay Z and Beyonce expert at your next family party/company event/watercooler conversation.

The Elevator Incident

This is really what started the whole 'Jay/Bey are done' rumors. It happened back in May, when some security footage leaked from a Met Gala after-party. There's no audio in the video, but it clearly showed Jay Z, Beyonce, and Solange (Beyonce's sister) on an elevator. Solange was yelling, and then she went after Jay Z. Theories behind why the bizarre 'incident' took place include:

1.) Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with Rihanna.

2.) Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with Rachel Roy.

3.) Jay Z was with Rachel Roy back in the day, and bragged about it the night of the Met Gala.

4.) Jay Z disrespected Beyonce in some way, cheating or otherwise, and Solange was sticking up for her.

5.) Solange's behavior that night is normal for her.

6.) Blue Ivy is actually Solange's daughter and now she wants custody?

7.) Solange's kid is actually Jay Z's and she's tired of hiding it?

8.) Solange and Jay Z were arguing over something Illuminati-related?

As you can see, things start to get weird, fast. This doesn't even include the joke theories! That said, all we officially know is what the three of them have said — essentially nothing.

Yet that hasn't stopped rumors from circulating that Jay Z and Beyonce are definitely, probably, maybe going to break up, separate, renew their vows, have another kid, or divorce soon, in the future, or never.

Top 5 Couples in Country Music

Best Country Couples

Celebrity couples just make sense, right? They "get" one another. They get what it's like to be adored. They get what it's like to lack privacy. They get what it's like to roll around in money (I'm assuming). There's an added layer of compatibility when the two celebrities are not just famous, but come from the same industry. So these five country couples just make sense.

Johnny Cash + June Carter

Johnny Cash and June Carter are kind of the quintessential country couple. They first met in 1956 when they were both part of the Opry company; by the 1960s, Cash and Carter were regularly performing together. In 1968, Cash proposed, and the two were married a month later. The couple was married for 35 years, and they were the subject of the 2005 film "Walk the Line." During their professional career, Cash and Carter also won prestigious awards for their duets "Jackson" and "If I Were a Carpenter."

10 Best Celebrity Alter Egos

Alter egos

Even the greatest of celebrities have employed alter egos — whether to help them perform onstage, or to try something new in their music, or just because they felt like it. Here are our picks for the top 10 celebrity alter egos.

#1 Beyoncé as Sasha Fierce

Although Beyoncé has a few alter egos under her belt — including her latest, Yoncé, and Mrs. Carter, the queen of her previous solo tour — it all started with Sasha Fierce. Sasha Fierce existed only on stage, allowing Beyoncé to separate Celebrity Beyoncé from Regular Beyoncé. In 2010, she said she had "killed" Sasha Fierce because she no longer needed her; since then, the singer has said, "I think Beyoncé is Beyoncé, Mrs. Carter is Beyoncé, Sasha Fierce is Beyoncé. And I’m finally at a place where I don’t have to separate the two."
