Jimmy Butler’s Emo Phase Continues in Fall Out Boy’s ‘So Much (For) Stardust’ Music Video

It was never a phase, mom! Especially for Jimmy Butler.

The NBA star appears in the new music video for Fall Out Boy’s “So Much (For) Stardust” released on Wednesday (Feb. 28), bringing back his viral “emo” hairstyle, featuring straightened locks in long bangs across his face, which he originally debuted last October for the Miami Heat’s media day.

In the clip, Butler rocks the exact same hairstyle, but this time paired with a sparkly purple cowboy outfit. He’s seen singing and dancing along to the lyrics in a Western-style venue, before FOB’s bassist Pete Wentz joins him dressed in a similar outfit, but in white.

Fall Out Boy’s eighth studio album So Much (For) Stardust arrived in March 2023, with the album topping Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart. The project features a total of 13 tracks — including lead single “Love From the Other Side,” “Heartbreak Feels So Good,” a surprise Ethan Hawke collaboration titled “The Pink Seashell,” the album’s title track and more.

“‘Time is luck.’ Finish another tour. You reflect but not like a gem in the sun – more like a year long stare into yourself in another airplane bathroom,” the band — which consists of members Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley — wrote when announcing the album last year. “Sometimes you gotta blow everything you were and put the pieces back together in a new shape. The same but different – the foundation dynamited and the dust used to create the concrete pour. I have a tendency to get a little sad whenever I think about anything…but I also feel pure joy when I think that I exist at the same time as whales or that read happens to rise at a certain temperature. And that we happen to be spinning on this little blue rock at the exact same time together. So much (for) stardust.”
