No, this is not a picture of a grandfather with his granddaughter.

One of the most powerful couples in the world is also one of the oddest looking ones.

It’s still hard to believe that these two are actually married with twins on the way.

is, but for some reason, I can just imagine her wearing the pants in the relationship. While Cannon has repeatedly affirmed that Carey was always his celebrity dream crush, I just don’t see how they could have ended up together and what they could have in common. Finally, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are two stars that appear to be in completely different leagues. I could imagine Ashton dating someone younger like Jessica Alba and Demi with someone older like Alec Baldwin. To me, Ashton looks like he is on a leash, or Demi’s little puppy. The truth, however, is that true love doesn’t just involve good looks or two people being in the same age range. Perhaps the best relationships are the ones that appear to be mismatches in our eyes. http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20198845,00.

Marc Anthony “cowers” beside his larger wife, JLo.

Eve 2010, the eighty-four year old proposed to his twenty-four year old girlfriend and Playmate. He is technically old enough to be her great-grandfather, a thought that just makes me sick. Seriously, at this point, their relationship is at more of a countdown state than one surrounded around thoughts of being together for several years. Despite being big fans of both of them, singers Beyonce and Jay-Z are two people that I never would have imagined together. Nevertheless, they are one of Hollywood’s most powerful couples, and their private relationship appears to be as strong as ever. When Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon got married last year, I was stunned. I never would have imagined that a diva like Carey would settle down with someone like Nick Cannon. Not only is she around nine years older than he http://www.thewrap.com/deal-central/article/be-

could a man the size of Anthony give? I could actually imagine him hiding behind her. When I see the younger couple of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, two words come to my mind: statutory assault. Gomez is currently eighteen, while Bieber is still sixteen. Legally, Bieber is considered to be a minor, which means that if he and Selena were to…, then she could be convicted of a crime. I am not saying that they are the worst looking couple; it’s just that I can picture Selena dating someone a little older, like me. Now, while some may not believe that a two year age difference is all that bad, you have to agree that a sixty year age difference is just ridiculous. That is the case for Mr. Playboy Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris. On Christmas http://turbo.inquisitr.com/wp-content/2010/04/

Surely everyone has spotted a couple that makes him or her think, “What in the world are they doing together?”. I do it all the time. Some couples look like complete opposites to each other, meaning that they appear to be extremely incompatible when together. Here are a few famous couples who I think of as “incompatible”. Personally, I dislike seeing couples where the woman is much taller and bigger than the man. It makes the man look weaker and inferior to the woman that he is with. This is what comes to my mind when I see Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony together. She is so much bigger in stature than her shorter, skinnier husband of over six years. Seriously, she looks as if she could manhandle him. I mean, if someone were to attempt to harm JLo, how much help
