We love Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, so much so that we’ve even tweeted at Nicole when she offers to answer questions from nosy fans. Our love is pure and true. But we couldn’t resist poking fun at the happy couple, who recently hosted a ribbon cutting of a new playground that they sponsored through their foundation (seriously, these two are charitable angels).
In addition to reminding us of one of the creepiest paintings ever, the cutting-edge couple has morphed into some sort of suburban parental nightmare. Joel has completely toned down his tattooed-rocker look, and Nicole somehow forgot that she was the queen of boho chic, and instead dressed for a day of outlet shopping and dinner at Olive Garden. Maybe when you gain kids, you lose your edge? But while we mock their G-rated look, we love their do-good attitude and practically perfect life. Maybe this is why Lindsay Lohan is so jealous of Nicole? [Photo: GettyImages/Iconic painting: “American Gothic” by Grant Wood]
