Fugs and Fabs: The Premiere of When The Bough Breaks

When the Bough Breaks is a The Hand That Rocks the Cradle for the new millennium, best I can tell (certainly, the similarities are intentional, given that the line is “when the bough breaks, the cradle will rock”) and every time I see the trailer on TV, I find myself mesmerized, and not only because the Slow Ominous Version of “The Boy Is Mine” is kind of amazing:

It feels very Lifetime — Psychotic Surrogate On the Loose! is a movie on Lifetime every seventy-two minutes — but so was the original, and also, as you know, I love Lifetime movies. I once spent an entire Sunday watching three Menendez Brothers movies in a row. In short, I am here for this and not only because of Morris Chestnut; in a cineplex overrun with superhero movies, I long for the return of the cheesy, satisfying sexual thriller.


Fugs and/or Fabs: Lupita Nyong’o and Janelle Monae

Fugs and Fabs: The VMAs Afterparties

It may not surprise you to hear that the A list part of the evening — Rihanna’s — did not have a step-and-repeat so we could ogle everyone’s outfits. Damn it, RiRi. I ask you for so little!

Fugs and Fabs: The Rest of the VMAs Red Carpet

Oh, VMAs red carpet. Our time together was so brief, so sweet, like a summer romance with a paramour we’ll think back on fondly until Facebook Memories reminds us what it actually looked like.

VMA Fug Carpet: Ariana Grande in Alexander Wang

I said this in the piece we wrote for Cosmo, but this look is giving me major cognitive dissonance:

2016 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

Her upper half cannot wait for your Labor Day Pool Party at the Mandalay Bay, and her bottom half is totally dreading her tax appointment later this afternoon.

VMA Fugs and Fabs: The Dudes of the VMAs

Some of the dudes at the VMAs last night looked totally snazzy — I’m trying to bringĀ  “snazzy” back — and some of them took a swing and a miss.
