GRAMMY 2011 FASHION

Of everyone, Keri Hilson turned it out best and most appropriately in Basil Soda. Predictably, metallic mania saturated the 2011 Grammy red carpet.  JLo in Emilio Pucci, and look at little Snooks werking an exaggerated shoulder. Selena Gomez looked ten years older in J MendelHeidi Klum improved over her last dress disaster with this Julien MacDonald. Kim Kardashian gambled on titty tape in Kaufmanfranco, Miley in Cavalli, and Rimes in Reem Acra. JHud channeled Naomi in Versace.  She’d be a contender for best dressed if the skirt had reached the floor.  From the waist down, the dress is reading budget. Ciara showed almost everything in Emilio Pucci.  Wrong shoes girl. Minaj in Givenchy, Gaga in Hussien Chalayan, and (to some extent) Rihanna in Gaultier served avant-garde, but their attempts at fashion rebellion felt a bit contrived. Florence Welch broke out the new Givenchy hot off the runway.  Katy Perry dug up her Halloween faerie costume from 2001.  Wings Katy, really?  That abomination is fucking Armani yo!Don’t love the dress, but overall, this is a vast improvement for Nicole Kidman who has been looking like dookie lately.  Natasha Bedingfield and Julianne Hough also donned florals and patterns.

vh1 Divas: Salute to the Troops

I know ya’ll watched the vh1 Divas: Salute to the Troops last night.

Are we still pretending that Katy Perry can sing?  (Furthermore, are we still pretending that RB exercises matrimonial fidelity despite persistent rumors to the contrary?)  After a cute Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy moment, vocals heavily supported by Hilson and Nettles, Perry turned out a tired-ass song, basic choreo, and an embarrassing harness glitch.  Peddle your low rent, tit-jiggling, cheesecake shtick elsewhere Perry.

Ann and Nancy Wilson murdered Crazy and showed these young-ass bitches how it’s done.  Slow your roll Grace Potter, aka, Heidi Klum circa 2008.  You can sing, but if Ohh La La is lyrically your best, there’s ample room for improvement.My girl Minaj looked super nervous.  I think she was struggling with her Louboutins.  Not sure why Right Thru Me is the song she’s decided to clean up and take live.  It is nowhere near the best track on Pink Friday, a record that grows on me more and more with each listen.  Vocally, she put tone-deaf Katy Perry to shame on Girls Just Want to Have Fun. Paramore played via satellite from Camp Arifjan in Kuwait, and as usual Hayley Williams shows a lot of promise (though clearly not in the realm of fashion, gurl screams Franklin, TN).  Go on and judge, but nothing holds a candle to Misery Business.  Bonus points for making me momentarily not hate that Foo Fighters song.
