When you think '5 Seconds of Summer,' what immediately springs to mind? Punk rock shenanigans, pizza and skinny jeans, that's what. It's their whole ethos. But our worlds could be about to turn upside down, people, 'cos Ashton Irwin's made a shocking skinny jeans-based confession and we're not entirely sure how to handle it.
We're so heavily invested in the boys' ripped skinnies we once made this uber important, high brow quiz asking y'all to identify their naked kneecaps. But can we just warn you to forget everything you thought you knew and prepare to be SHAKEN TO YOUR VERY CORE?
Guys, Ashton might be giving up the skinny jeans. Yup. Aaaand breathe.
Chatting to Inquirer.net backstage at the lads' Sounds Live Feels Live Manila show, Ash did the unthinkable and admitted: "Mine are actually getting less skinny… I look at my legs and they're like, 'You're getting older now, buddy. Probably loosen up those jeans if you want to have any children one day."
Ah, fertility versus fashion. The eternal dilemma.
Moving swiftly on, mainly because we're pretending this isn't happening, Ash also gushed over how chuffed he was to be performing in Manila. He said: "We've been wanting to come here since we started the band."
"I think our fanbase kind of grew here just as quick as it did in Australia, which was crazy because it was like the dawning of the online fanbase, and that was really interesting. So it's exciting to be here, finally"
At a time like this we really need to just blast 'She Looks So Perfect' across the office. Who's with us?
What d'ya make of Ashton's shock confession, eh? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape and all that malarky, please and cheers.
