25 things you maybe didn't want to know about Yoko Ono
So remember last year when everyone was simultaneously bored with those "25 Things About Me" lists while also compelled to compile a list of one's own? It would seem Yoko Ono finally got hip to the trend and, over the weekend, published her own list of esoteric Yoko factoids.
If I knew nothing else about Yoko Ono except what is included in the list, I would assume the woman is obsessed with her body -- mostly her feet. No fewer than seven items are dedicated to her obsession with her lower extremities -- everything from her philosophy on heels and flats to this explainer about her legs:
4. I have rather short legs to match my short height. I love that. The fact that they're short makes them easier to go around with. Can you imagine if I had long legs? They might go in different directions from each other, or something. Then what would I do? Short legs work very well for me.
Can't argue with that logic.
When it comes to hands, though, Yoko shares her heartbreaking frustration: despite a love of gloves and rings, she can't wear them because "my hands cannot breathe properly."
Also, don't try to put anything -- say a beauty cream -- on Yoko's face. It will "rebel" against the stickiness. Speaking of her head, Yoko shares this sweet snapshot of her relationship with late husband John Lennon:
14. My head was unusually large for my small bod. So John called me a "Martian."
Funny. I also have called Yoko a Martian, but mostly because of stuff like this.
As one approaches the end of the list, Yoko does get outside her body to talk about some larger themes, reminisce about "our days as gods and goddesses" (you know, when we were "larger than dinosaurs" and used to "play ball with planets") and her thoughts on how the military budget could be better spent ("I thought it would be more economical to drop 10 thousand dollar bags from the sky to the people of the country.")
Now you know.
