Why Did You Wear That: MTV VMA’s (Very Much a Mess)

Katy Perry in Emanual Ungaro, Ellie Goulding, Becky G, Holland Roden in Naeem Khan

So, pretty much the VMA’s were the equivalent to the hangover I had from this weekend. And as a matter of fact, they actually made me want to drink more (Don’t worry, mom, I didn’t). For starters, when MTV hosts the Video Music Awards in Brooklyn, you know Brooklyn has lost all its “edge”- kind of like teen pregnancy and Lady Gaga. Guess it’s time to move back to the East Village, kids.

Speaking of Lady Gaga, who is apparently still making music, she started things off by impersonating her favorite internet meme: cat breading.

Don’t worry, she didn’t stay clothed for long. And not to be outdone, Miley Cyrus followed suit by also wearing some type of prosthetic panties for her performance with Robin Thicke, so I watched the rest of the show naked. We get it, Miley. You’re a bad girl. Side note: if Paula Patton knocked Miley upside her head for nuzzling her husband’s neck and teenage twerking, would that be considered child abuse?

No Pants, No Problem:

Things didn’t get much better from there or on the red carpet. I really have nothing good to report regarding the fashion from the evening… I mean, Rihanna skipped the red carpet altogether. There were, however, lots of leather clad children running amok. Perhaps this is where I show my age, because I had no idea who half of the individuals interviewed by Sway were (I don’t think he did either). I was actually shamed by two tweens the other night for not knowing who One Direction is. Noted, ladies. I wonder which 1D member stands to be the Justin Timberlake of ‘NSYNC. You see what happens to the others, guys… Dance harder.

From feathers and sequins, lots of leather, and more crop tops, stars left very little to the imagination. Even good girl, Selena Gomez, had an intentional wardrobe malfunction in her Atelier Versace. And what’s worse? Showing up for your big night wearing the same thing as someone else much like 2Chainz and Grimes did. I honestly, don’t know what could be more awkward than that …. oh, right… Taylor Swift’s dance moves.

Would You Wednesday: Fresh Shave

side shave hairstylesRecently, I’ve noticed quite a few songstresses and celebrities with a very daring hairstyle created by shaving one side of their heads and leaving the rest of their locks long.  I must admit it, it’s an undeniably edgy look that the average wallflower couldn’t pull off, but it makes me a little nervous.  I’m pretty attached (both literally and figuratively) to my tresses and if you think bangs are hard to grow out, I can’t imagine what kind of fun ensues when trying to even out your follicles once one tires of the look.  On the upside, I suppose it’d cut drying time in half.

So would you try the look?

Chop, chop.

Weekend Playlist: You Are My Obsession
Written by: WhyDid | Weekend Playlist

dancing on the table

I’ve talked before about needing the right music on while I’m working.  I can not have a TV on or someone talking to me when I’m trying to write, so it’s a very delicate balance as to what I can listen to.  It also depends what I’m working on. For instance, when I’m going deep and dark, I need something more moody.  For some less intense (but equally entertaining) writing, I need my playlist to be a bit more upbeat, but not bubble gum pop.  Again… very delicate balance.  If it’s too good, I’m liable to get up and dance on the coffee table, yet I’d still like to sway in my seat.  I created this playlist specifically for such occasion, but have not stopped listening to it since.

Sorry for the wonky playlist screenshot, but I couldn’t get my Spotify “play button” to work and will update for your listening pleasure as soon as I do.

Weekend Playlist: Make a Run For It
Written by: WhyDid | Weekend Playlist

ipod running playlistAfter a truly bullshitty day, a head clearing, sweat inducing run is one of the only things (other than a cool glass of wine) that helps me to unwind.  And rather than lay day on the Dr.’s couch and spill all my problems, I run.  Running is my therapy.  While it may not be as medically effective, it’s a lot cheaper.  Plus, when did you ever lose weight laying on a couch?

My highschool gym teacher is scoffing somewhere.  I did, afterall, convince her that crunches were only making my stomach bigger.  So, the thought of me exerting myself voluntarily is probably mind boggling.  I am well aware that 90% of the population would probably rather push a burning boulder of poo up a hill both ways before running… on purpose.  The hardest part of running is putting on your sneakers and hitting the pavement (or treadmill).  I certainly can’t make that part any easier, but a booty shaking playlist will most certainly help (and that I can do).

And yes, there is a little Bieber in the mix.  If that’s wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

Written by: WhyDid | Weekend Playlist

dance partyIf you know anything about me, you know that I love a good dance party.  Um, hello?  Have you seen my “How To” videos?  You can’t learn moves like those.  Not that you really need a reason to have your own dance party, but a birthday is a pretty surefire way to get one started.  Whether it’s your birthday, your friend’s birthday, or you just enjoy dancing as much I do, here’s a great playlist to shake your limbs to.

I’ll dance if I want to.
