We’re officially salty that Jools Holland didn’t make the Carole King/ Karen O collabo happen. We mean, that was the obvious move, right? Carole could have played the piano and crooned, with Karen providing interpretive screeches and yelps. Nick and Brian could’ve played maracas in the background. Candles would be lit. Arpeggios would be arpeggiated. It would have been brain-breaking. Instead, we get a pretty amazing performance of “Zero,” the song y’all love to love, and a typically transfixing outfit donned by the Divine Miss O. The dress is likely Christian Joy, but who makes that covetous studded leather jacket? We were thinking Balmain but we’re pretty sure it’s not Balmain, and also, Karen O doesn’t make it a habit of dressing up like a fashion editor at [insert non-American country here] Vogue. Karen! Get at us about your leather!
