Jon Hamm is on the cover of the May issue of Men’s Fitness, and inside, he discusses his life, Mad blah blah blah blah he just called Justin Bieber a “shithead”.
“Look at Bieber or whoever,” he says. “You’re like, ‘What the f**k, man? What are you doing? Why?’ There’s no one telling those people no, and it’s a shame.” What young celebs like that really need, Hamm says, “is a mom or a dad or a really good friend who can say, ‘Hey, sh**head!’ You see people in the world and you’re like, ‘Do you know how a washing machine works? Do you know how to wash a dish? Life skills are something we’re missing. “There used to be a class that kids had to take in high school called home economics, which was cooking and sewing and just s**t you needed to learn in life.” Bieber isn’t the only person Hamm takes aim at — and he’s not afraid to get political. He believes in success, and notes “this weird backlash” against being ambitious and upwardly mobile in America. “It’s this Sarah Palin kind of conversation where they’re like, ‘Oh, the elites,’” he says. “It’s become a thing to just aspire to be a regular person. No, actually, you should desire to be better.”
He kinda lost me at we all need to learn how to sew, but yeah, instead of teaching algebra and chemistry and other stuff most people will never think about again after they graduate high school, how about teach a class that teaches kids how to be decent human being. Let’s have Empathy 101 and How Not To Be A Dick: The Science Of Making Friends And Forming Lasting Relationships. Or a class that makes students understand the world doesn’t revolve around them. You can still do the cooking class, I guess. Just make sure you spend a whole semester on tacos.
