Billboard Music Awards Fug Carpet: Kerli


The Estonian pop singer Kerli has created a label for herself called BubbleGoth, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like.

To that I say: Nice try. You can call it what you want, child, but we already have a Robyn, and a Minaj, and a Jessie J, and a Ke$ha, and a Li’l Mama, and a Katy Perry, and a Gaga. We don’t need to put them in a blender and garnish with Gund. The orchestra is tired of playing this old song and desperately wants a whiskey break.

    Those crocheted shoe platform things are FILTHY. If you’re going to try too hard, your accoutrements should at least be clean.

      I was thinking the exact same thing.

      Could someone please tell Ke$ha this, while we’re at it?

    I can’t get past her name. Kerli? Like, Curly? Eh.

      It’s rather common first name here in Estonia.
      In Estonian media she always insists that her style was this kind of eclectic before lady gaga got famous. But fugly nevertheless…

        This is true! Many European countries were doing the avant garde/quirky odd pop star bit long before eyeroll came along. Eyeroll just had the right marketing team and Perez Hilton. But yes, still quite fugly, those pink leggings and dirty bear shoes look cheeeeaaaap.

    Japan called, and it wants its goth loli style back even though you watered it down.

    It looks like her legs are on backwards.

    Now I know what Snookie’s baby will look like… and my corneas will be forever seared.

    My Little Pony hair combined with random garments and shoes stolen from a Japanese schoolgirl. It’s a tragic mess.

    Well, I don’t like it, but I suppose that’s the point?

    For a second, I thought this was Mona from Pretty Little Liars who had either 1) come out with some scary album; or 2) was making fun of Gaga, Minaj, etc. I was scared if #1 was right and excited if #2 was…but alas, it was not meant to be. (I think I just have PLL on the brain because I keep seeing ads for the new season).

      I just skimmed your first sentence and thought you said “for a second I thought this was My Little Pony” – because I would’ve bought that, hook line and sinker. Mostly because I did too. I’m pretty sure she’s going to smell like fake blueberries too.

    It’s like Kim Kardashian fell into a Nickelodeon show.

    Speaking of Lil’ Mama (I believe the apostrophe is after the second L, though correct me if I’m wrong): Where did she go? She had like one and a half songs (my ex introduced me to “Lip Gloss”), and then she dropped off the face of the earth.

    I would like to correct Stubenville and say that those shoes were stolen from a Japanese schoolgirl’s bedroom. Somewhere in the Land of the Rising Sun, some middle-schooler is PISSED about her missing teddy bears.

      The diminutive Mama is part of the three headed judging braintrust running Randy Jackson’s “So you think you can dance with a group of people and maybe do some gymnastics.”

    Bai Ling would be proud.

    That is not a compliment.

      Bai Ling would sneer at this because there is nary a nipple to be seen and the name/phone number for her waxer is not clearly tattooed on her upper thigh.

      Amateur.

    You can see the garter belt through the skirt. CLASSY. /o\

    Her face is just like Christie Clark’s (Original Carrie from Days).

    Ooh, will this be Estonia’s entry in Fug Madness this year? Could we maybe launch a Eurovfugvision contest, too?

    Ok first of all people comparing kerli to that mess nicki minaj Is a complete Insult! kerli actually creates all of her outfits & accessories, for example her teddy bear platforms which I think are adorable she Is a truly creative artist with a beautiful soul before judging her by her apperance ( Which I think she looks gorgeous ) you should try looking her up on google & finding out about how much she has been through & how much of an amazing person she Is. then maybe you wouldn’t be so rude! & btw look up “Zero gravity” on youtube her kick ass new video! :D Intregity, Love, Unity.

    Her makeup makes her look like an alien life form paramour of Captain Kirk.

    Is this girl having a sort of orthopaedic deformity? Her legs look kinda crooked. The fugliness of her attire is beyond discussion. I agree, tough, that the wacky costume thing has been rolling on long before Gaga. I’m thinking Bjork; to whom BTW this girl keeps some resemblance… Yeah, now that I think about it I guess this pinky outfit is the sorta thing Bjork wore to pre-school.

    I covet her hair color.

    I will say this – at least she’s prettier than Gaga.

    She’s so cute and tiny. I love the hair.
    But..She’s reminding me of a smaller, sluttier, real life version of Jem.

    She actually went to these awards on a whim and wore street clothes to it. That dress was $22 and she made the shoes a long time ago, so it’s no wonder she’s on the worst dressed list.

    Is she 3 feet tall? She looks it, certainly.

    Even though I am not exactly a fan, I have to give Kerli props. She creates her own outfits using unconventional materials as an outlet for her creativity. She is an extremely imaginative individual in her own right, and has been sharing this for longer than most of you seem to know (her first album came out in 2008).

    This outfit, unfortunately, does not illustrate this vast creativity that she possesses.

    Hater. You do realize Kerli came before Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Ke$ha, etc, right?
