We love it when macho men cop to having some traditionally “feminine” habits. Take Cory Booker for instance: the Newark mayor is 6’3, an ex-varsity football player, and…a huge fan of mani-pedis.
The politico talked to DuJour magazine, the new quarterly title produced in partnership with Gilt, and he made a somewhat surprising confession about what he gets up to in the dead of night:
“I had an ex-girlfriend who ruined me in terms of my macho, ex-football-player self — she turned me on to mani-pedis. Being a public figure, people talk smack about you, so I found this 24-hour mani-pedi place and go in the middle of the night. It’s this guilty pleasure I have. Look, manis are good, but pedis — there’s something . . . transformative.”
We have but one question here: where is this 24-hour pedicure palace and when can we make an appointment? We’re certain Booker would make a much better companion than the yappy NYU students we’re usually parked next to at our local salon. Sign us up!
