Andre 3000 -- Weirdo in Real Life

5/15/2007 11:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If you thought Andre 3000's crazy ass get-ups were just an act -- think again.

TMZ spotted the artist in a Tom Sawyer inspired outfit, during a shopping spree in West Hollywood yesterday. Dre, aka Andre Lauren Benjamin, acted like everything was normal as he browsed the shelves of Kalologie, a beauty and skincare shop, sporting a large straw hat, suspenders and rolled up jeans. He was not the Model Boy of the village.

Authentic, yes, but last time we checked, Sawyer didn't have a Bluetooth.

Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrat are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd.

This is not "Normal" ? What exactly is wrong with a straw hat??!! TMZ reporters are just silly, and absurd. Oh, and I love having to watch commercials on my computer.

I think Andre has his own style, and although it can be odd at times, at least he doesn't look like he just rolled out of bed to go shopping in a nightgown and cowboy boots (cough cough...Britney...cough cough). He is always clean, pressed, and well groomed.

DAMN! Why so harsh on Andre 3000! I think it's great he has his own sense of style and it's funky - what 'cha know about p-funk anyway?

FINALLY TMZ finds somebody else to write about other then britney and paris and they waste it by doing something stupid like this on Andre.

We know Andre has his own style and obviously cares about his skin. No story here, but I like people and celebrity watching, so thanks TMZ. Next time think of a better caption.

Leave him alone! His style is just different... I like it! So back off TMZ. Why don't you keep to making fun of wigs and wrinkles.

TMZ is just trying to be more like Perez Hilton. Unfortunately they can't pull off the caddy queen act quite as well.
