I looked through 52 photographs — a whole deck of cards — of the fashion at last night's VMA's.

Maybe I did it so you don't have to, or maybe you'll go through — here — and challenge my ratings:

1. Miley Cyrus
2. Lizzo
3. Nicki Minaj
4. Demi Lovato

Remember, it's the VMAs, not the Oscars. There's supposed to me some weirdness and playfulness in the glamour.

I'd never heard of Lizzo before, but her strange getup got me to look at her for a long time, to notice a very beautiful face, and to look up her music and listen to this:

Lizzo is based out of Minneapolis and is promoted by the local public radio. S'pose it's a diversity thing.

Lizzo: The black female Dylan.

Baby how you doin'?

I liked Paris Jackson's outfit.

However, the outfit shines no light on whether Michael Jackson is her biological father or not.

Unless she left DNA on the dress.

I'm not sure if her shorts were that tight.

I am Laslo.

1. #36 Aaron's beard

I'm starting to understand why the beauty shop is always pillaged during a race riot.

"I'd never heard of Lizzo before." I'd never heard of 48 others before. Does that make me elite or elitist?

It seems that there are some reasonably attractive people in the music business today who do all they can to look unattractive.

Laslo Spatula said...

Miley Cyrus looks better in this photo than in the ones where she is squatting and peeing while drinking a Corona.

That is my aesthetic judgement.

I am Laslo.

Jeff Gee said...

Pink and her family, then Miley. Most of the other looks like they aren't having any fun.

To think that there are souls so impoverished that they care more about the VMA awards than the GoT finale is indeed distressing. We have failed our youth.

William said...

I clicked through the pictures. I thought that the girls would be hotter, and the outfits would be more revealing.

I'm not seeing enough tattoos and piercings.

Ellen looks like a photoshop.

Virginia Military Academy?

Known Unknown said...

The entire Miley Cyrus twerk-a-thon a few years ago was such a calculated move to obliterate the remnants of Hanna Montana from anyone's mind. That now done, Miley can return to being Miley in a more wholesome, grown-up way.

EDH said...

That descendent of Gen. Robert E. Lee should have worn a bedazzled confederate uniform and an ironic Hitler hairdo to recite his ancestral mea culpa.

Darrell said...

Miley can return to being Miley in a more wholesome, grown-up way.

Except she's come out as "cuckoo for Vanilla Puff." Hillary.

Is Pete Davidson's T-shirt telling me to do what I think it is telling me to do? Why is this not hate?

MadisonMan said...

Olivia Munn looks ridiculous.

So many of them look very put out to have to stand there. Is no one happy? Is this Trump fallout?

The women at last made an effort. Too many men just threw on a shirt, apparently.

Who are these people? I know I must be getting old not only because I know so few of them but also because I no longer feel like or care about finding out.

Gospace said...

I scrolled through all 52. Many with multiple people. I knew the names of 12 of the people listed. Of those 12, there were 4 I've listened to or watched in movies or on shows.

They're nobodies.

Like trailer park trash escaping from TX floods who went to Target to buy dry clothes, and all they could find was in the Halloween section. Someone call the fashion police: most of these people should not allowed to dress themselves.

The men could barely be bothered. Perhaps they don't get the game of Dress-UP -- mostly just jeans and a T, although the guy with the gold lame boots stood out (not in a good way).
