Why Did You Wear That: Ugh, Send me the Bill-I’m Bored.

Sure was a good thing that I spent the afternoon reading and napping, cause I am not sure I’ve ever been so bored by an awards show.  The Billboard Music Awards was so slow moving I was left wondering if everyone was handed a Xanax on their way in to their seats.  And that’s not really where my questions end.  Are they actually giving out awards at this thing and is it co-sponsored by Zuhair Murad?  PSY was nominated for multiple awards in the rap category?  Tupac just rolled over in his grave.  Was lip syncing a requirement? Are some of these stars gunning for a spot on next season of Dancing with the Stars?  Did everyone’s invitation get lost in the mail? (Mine did).  Where’s Rihanna when you need her?

Drop crotch leather pants, unicorn t-shirts, body slamming- and no, I’m not describing my weekend.  Ke$sha was looking, well, not like Ke$ha in an ensemble that leads me to believe she just came straight from the pool at Wet Republic.  I understand this isn’t the Oscars, let alone the Met gala, but it was such slim pickings on the “blue carpet” that I nearly threw in the towel and smashed my guitar halfway through watching.  But alas, no one likes a quitter, so here are my picks for best, worst, and WTF?! of the night.

Platinum Bound:

Selena Gomez in Atelier Versace, Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad, Miley Cyrus in Balmain, Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad

Going Gold:

Alyssa Milano, Kelly Rowland in Rami Al Ali, Stana Katic, Kimberly Perry

Carly Rae Jepsen in Dyanthe, Emmy Rossum in Zuhair Murad, Ke$ha in Givenchy, Jennifer Morrison in Kristian Aadvenik

One Hit Wonders:

Nayer, Z Lala, Jenny McCarthy, Ariana Grande

Maybe I need to take up an instrument.

Why Did You Wear That: Let’s Make Beautiful Music Together

american music awards red carpetAnother year, another round of award shows doling out little metal trophies to folks who may or may not deserve them. But the fun is not in who wins what as much as it is in who wears what.  So, let the self tanner application, lapses in style judgement, and wardrobe malfunctions begin and let’s kick things off with last night’s American Music Awards.

While it’s been a while since I’ve tuned in, some things remain exactly as they did a year ago… and beyond.  These include but are not limited to:

  • They’re still letting Chris Brown perform.  Why they even let him out of his cage, I’ll never know, but this white girl won’t be dancing like it’s her birthday when his songs come on.  Ever.
  • Jenny McCarthy is still hot.
  • You still can’t touch MC Hammer.
  • Christina Aguilera still wears leotards when she probably shouldn’t (but she can still sing like nobody’s business, so we’ll give her a pass).
  • Pitbull is still making songs that don’t make any logical sense in English or Spanish.
  • Crowding the stage with babes in bedazzled bustiers will still cover up any bad performance.
  • Taylor Swift is still singing about some boy who did her wrong in something that resembles a bad prom dress.
  • Nicki Minaj is still in need of a time out.
  • Pink could still kick your ass.
  • No Doubt is still as rad as ever.

And while it’s nice to have a bit of stability in your life, I’m a little concerned about America’s choices in music.  Perhaps that’s a better indicator of the state of our nation?  One thing that does seem to be changing is Justin Bieber’s voice (anyone else catch that?) which was quite clear after hearing him dedicate his win to the “haters” (he realizes he’s an eighteen year old 98lb white kid, right?).  So, I decided I was going to come up with my own award categories that seem much, much more important:

Best Legs:

Color of the Evening:

 Most in Need of a New Hairstyle:

xx,

Why Did You Wear That: Grammy Glory and Grammy Gross

You know, the Grammy’s always manage to get my blood boiling.  Whether Lady Gaga is showing up as an egg or Snooki just shows up, it seems like this particular award show just causes everyone to lose their darn minds.  This year was especially tragic due to the loss of the great Whitney Houston, and I expected a much more subdued, somber affair, but despite the abundance of (I suspect unintentional) black on the red carpet, it seems the night carried on as usual.

grammys black dresses 2012Oh- hey black dresses.  I know that we all think you can’t go wrong in a little black dress (LBD), but it would appear that’s not always the case.  Now, I know Rihanna’s Armani “collaboration” was a showstopper, but let’s be real, while not offensive, it’s also nothing that me or one of my sorority sisters didn’t don at one of our date parties.  This slinky low cut number left me less than impressed.  Anne V (beautiful arm candy to beau Adam Levine), proved that an LBD can be anything but tasteful.  We get it, your gorgeous.  Now please cover your crotch.  However, Gwyneth Paltrow wowed in this tasteful yet unexpected Stella Mc Cartney.  That, my friends, is how an LBD is done.

grammys 2012 best dressedWithout spending too much time on the red carpet (and my head and heart exploding), let’s just get down to business.  Three ladies who I thought stole the show, or at least the red carpet, were Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad and an unlikely chic bun updo (let’s forget about her Yeehaw Junction performace), Jessie J in Julien Macdonald, and Kelly Rowland in Alberta Ferretti.  This is how you do elegant glamour.

grammys 2012 worst dressedAnd with the good must come the bad.  While I have to say that I was blown away by the color and the detail of Fergie’s Jean Paul Gaultier get up, I had no interest in her oversized granny panties or “Grammies” as they were coined.  It’s a bit age inappropriate (and eye inappropriate), but had she chosen nude, tonal, or metallic undergarments, I might have been slightly less offended.  Katy Perry just needs to cut it out with her crazy colored hair (this combination has me thinking she’s gunning for a Smurfs sequel), and this Elie Saab dress leaves me longing for that ridiculous light up number she sported.  The most offensive by far, however, was Nicki Minaj in Versace.  I don’t care if you showed up with the pope.  This look will have you saying Hail Mary’s from now until eternity.  Why don’t you and Gaga just have a “weird off” and see who can outdo each other once and for all.  Kind of like a dance off with clothes.

Nonetheless, the Grammy’s was full of fantastic performances and plenty of fun… and while my blood pressure may have peaked… I’m certain I will tune in again next year just to get another glimpse of crazy.

xx,
