Stars, they’re just like us! They’re also finding it difficult to function in Chicago’s unbearable cold.
“Whoa .… Chicago is hella cold. I gotta break off all of my friendships with people who don’t live in my bedroom or kitchen. I’m a house-person now,” actress Gabourey Sidibe tweeted this week. She is back in town filming the rest of Season 4 of the Fox drama “Empire.”
The city’s subfreezing temperatures seemed to vex even celebrities who are from here.
The Chicago rock band Twin Peaks updated the lyrics of its song “Good Lovin’” at Thalia Hall over the weekend to reflect the weather: “It’s (expletive) freezing in Chicago. The snow falls on my window.”
Rapper Vic Mensa, who hails from the South Side and is often in Chicago, tweeted last week: “Chicago I’m sorry I left you for so long but I’m back to freeze to death with you.” He helped celebrate the opening of the new Near North bar/lounge LiqrBox.
