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:

Monday Mashup: All That Glitters…

Hey Nicki?  Johnny 5 called… he wants his look back.  I should have figured the opening performance would set the tone for this year’s American Music Awards.  The tone being one big hot shiny mess.  I should have changed the channel… I should have looked away, but alas, I could not.  I’ve had about enough of Nicki’s wacky get ups. I’m on team Johnny 5.  What about you?

The AMA’s weren’t all bad though.  Here are five lovely ladies sporting what was most certainly the trend of the evening- metallics.  Sadly, this is about where the “good” ends and the eye gouging begins.

Watching the AMA’s only confirmed the fact that I might need to relocate to a tropical island– or at least place where it takes a lot more talent and several fewer sparkly bra tops to get ahead.

Exhibits A, B, and B 1/2.  It pains me to see Christina Aguilera look like… well, that.  What happened to that little Genie in a Bottle of yore?  It also pains me to see the mother of two wearing a sequin covered costume that may or may not have belonged to Britney Spears circa 1999.  Those jewel encrusted bra cups have got to be a breast feeding safety hazard.  Am I right?  Let’s not even get into the incestuousness of Pitbull’s pelvic grinding performance with J. Lo followed up by another performance with her ex-hubby Marc Anthony and sequin braziered fly girls.  Ew. And as for Adam Lambert, well, I really just wanted to throw him in so I could coin his new nickname, “Glambert.”  You’re welcome.

Let’s get it together, America.  We’re better than this.  All that glitters is not gold.

P.S. Ending the show with Hasselhoff in his manties? Classy touch.

  1. Black Swan.  You’ve been planning this for 9 months haven’t you?
  2. Nicki Minaj.  This is this year’s Lady Gaga.
  3. Charlie Sheen.
  4. Amy Winehouse.  Just ew.
  5. Steve Jobs.  Too soon.

Would You Wednesday: Color Me Beautiful

Lately, A-List ladies have been trading in conventionally colored coifs for wild shades that you’d normally only see on Rainbow Brite and My Little Pony.  Two of the latest to try this trend on their tresses are Katy Perry (who has gone through several shades of pink) and Lauren Conrad (with a pale ombre peach).  While they’ve been making a splash with their colorful new ‘do’s, they aren’t the first to go  ROYGBIV on us.

Oh yes, it seems that celebrities have run the gamut on high impact hairdo’s.  But what I really want to know is whether or not this hairdo is actually a hairDON’T.  I’m all for self expression and trying out the newest in beauty… but looking like a Skittle probably isn’t in the cards for me.  I don’t think my hairbrush wants to taste the rainbow.  Call me a traditionalist, but I think I’ll stick to haircolors commonly occurring in nature.  What do you think?

Now I’m craving Starburst. Great.

Weekend Playlist: I Like to Move It Move It
Written by: WhyDid | Weekend Playlist

The winds have turned and brought that chilly air that signals “So long, summer” and it’s now dark outside before 7pm.  It’d be pretty easy to channel your inner groundhog (do you know that they just beef up and sleep all winter?) and just give up on yourself.  I mean, afterall, it’s so cold you probably won’t be wearing any short shorts or minis (let alone shaving your legs) for the next five or so months.  Might as well just pack on the pounds and use your new blubber for insulation, right?  No.  Just stop it.  There’s no time like now to kick your workout into full gear and one of the easiest ways to stay on track is by updating your workout playlist.  Here’s one that I’ve been using for mine and will hopefully keep your body moving as well.

A good rule of thumb?  Always be ready to be in a bikini at a moment’s notice. You never know when you might need a mid-winter escape to the Caribbean.

xx,
