BREAKING NEWS: Julian Casablancas is actually cool with brunch.
for the record, i was specifically joking about when people dress up like it's the kentucky derby for LES brunch.-- Julian Casablancas (@Casablancas_J) October 20, 2014
i am not against the concept of weekend late breakfast, which people of all freedoms & hues should enjoy-- Julian Casablancas (@Casablancas_J) October 20, 2014
Only a monster or a masochist would deny themselves the distinct pleasure of a Bloody Mary (in a mason jar, of course) and indulgent breakfast foods during an hour that is usually reserved for boring salads. Although he told GQ just last month that he fled the city because he "[didn't] know how many, like, white people having brunch I can deal with on a Saturday afternoon," Julian Casablancas is no monster. The Strokes frontman was only joking about hating New York's most beloved meal (and readily available excuse for day drinking), which he helpfully clarified, "for the record," in a Twitter rant. So if you stopped eating brunch because you feared that Julian Casablancas would take away your cool points, feel free to resume.
