Now that Josh Groban has made a couple funny videos with Jimmy Kimmel, can we stop trying so hard to be cool and admit he’s super dreamy?
Three years ago, I bought my grandmother Josh Groban’s “Nöel” for Christmas. My grandmother thinks that living in L.A. means I exclusively go on dates with celebrities, so she called immediately after to tell me that Josh Groban would be an excellent match for me. “He’s very well-dressed and he has the voice of an angel,” she told me, as if those are the two most important masculine qualities.
My grandmother is rather Catholic and she sounded happy and relieved that squeaky clean young men still exist. Clearly she missed the “Panda Sex” song he performed on Kimmel months earlier.
This is what’s great about Groban. He provides tremendous comfort to old ladies who fear that the world is coming to an end, while simultaneously performing vaguely inappropriate sketches on “Kimmel,” serving as a guilty pleasure for girls in their 20s who love indie music but can’t muster up a crush on the scrawny, smelly-looking Brooklynites who make it.
Josh has a really cute hair cut, makes me laugh, and his recent album ”Illuminations” has some very romantic songs on it. My grandmother owns that one as well and continues to sing his praises.
