Why Can't I Be You?!

10/10/2007 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

75-year-old living legend Elizabeth Taylor and her 48-year-old goth doppelganger, Robert Smith of The Cure.
Elizabeth Taylor and Robert Smith
Boys don't cry -- or wear tired old women's makeup! The one thing Robert needs a cure from -- dressing like he did in the '80s!

We're just sayin'!

Robert Smith practially originated this look (even if he did borrow elements of it from classic movie stars La Liz), so he can do whatever he damn well pleases. Though he does look just a tad silly these days, I respect that he sticks to his roots/guns and continues to work the look. Sure beats trying to dress like someone from Fall Out Boy or Blink 182 or whatever just to fit in. He's one of the few unconventional alternative artists of the 80s/90 who has managed to STAY that way.

Come on! Why bring up the black card? This is about Robert Smith, one of the best musicians. I doubt any rapper can will be performing 30 years later and continue to have a young audience.

TMZ THE NEW JERRY SPRINGER ON LINE Elizabeth old beats your looks Harvey Levin
and she hurt herself in her youth and almost died. You're the shortest guy Harvey, what's your excuse for looking so bad? You're a little guy trying to beat up the ladies no matter their age, just cause you haven't come out of the closet yet. That will come next as you stick up for Howard and Larry. ONLINE JERRY SPRINGER IS HARVEY LEVIN .. KINDA CREEPY .. like in way creepy.

Darn It!    

I AGREE...LAY OFF ROBERT! HE COULD GIVE A RATS ASS WHAT YOU FOLKS THINK OF HIM ANYWAY. THE BAND IS AWESOME AND HAS ALWAYS STAYED TRUE TO THEMSELVES AND THEIR FANS. THEY HAVE WRITTEN SOME OF THE MOST POETIC POP/ROCK MUSIC OF OUR TIME.

I want a tattoo of Robert Smith on my rear end. I swear. I lurves him.

Can't help it. All the good music was made in the 80's. The rest is recycled.
