What was he thinking? Alec Baldwin made a very peculiar joke about Taylor Swift’s pee while hosting the Fragrance Foundation Awards at the Lincoln Center in New York on June 18. Read on to see Alec’s odd wisecrack about Tay Tay.
Not even the birth of his first son could keep Alec Baldwin, 57, from his hosting duties, although perhaps it should have. The Thirty Rock actor made a very odd joke about Taylor Swift, 25, that had most people just scratching their heads. The actor is certainly known for speaking his mind on every topic, but did he go too far with his bizarre joke?
Alec was the host for the Fragrance Foundation Awards at the Lincoln Center in New York on June 18, which had a star-studded guest list, including Kendall Jenner, Sophia Bush and Naomi Campbell. In between handing out awards he made what everyone present found to be a very peculiar comment when he said “Oh my God, I’m so excited! I just made a deal backstage to sell Taylor Swift’s pee as a fragrance.” So was that supposed to be funny? It seems like there’s always some drama surrounding Taylor, but we never thought we’d see the day when an Emmy winning actor would be making a joke about selling her pee. So weird.
Perhaps Alec could have saved himself the embarrassment of his odd ball joke if instead of hosting an awards show, he had been with his wife Hilaria Baldwin, 31, who just gave birth to their second child Rafael on June 17. Alec’s first son will now be little brother to his first daughter with Hilaria, Carmen, as well as to Ireland Baldwin, 19, his daughter with his first wife Kim Basinger. Congratulations to the happy parents!
