Fug Madness 2015: One Fugging Winner, One Fugging Moment


It was a tremendous Fug Madness tournament this year. We had two complete nail biters — Rihanna vs. Cara Delevingne in the second round, and Rita Ora vs. Lindsay Lohan in the Elite Eight, both of which came down to the last half-hour of voting as the pendulum swung wildly back and forth between them. We had new Cinderellas in Keke Palmer and Kate Walsh, who made it all the way to the Sweet Sixteen, and a slew of top seeds who delivered on the promises of a year’s worth of heinous insults our eyeballs. We made tournament history by giving us the first-ever final game rematch, between Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian. And now, at long last, we have our official winner:

Fug Madness 2015: The Final Game


cherbjork

It’s a rematch of last year’s final game, which we’ve never had in lo these many years we’ve done Fug Madness. Last year, Miley demolished Kim with 61 percent of the vote. The year prior to that, Kim lost to Justin Bieber with only 49 percent of the vote. Is this finally Fug Madness: Kim’s Revenge? Or is she doomed to be our very own Susan Lucci? That, dear Fug Nation, is entirely up to you.

[Remember, the slideshow is just a sampling of each person's Year in Fug, although it's nearly everything you need to see at this point. If you cannot choose, Kim's archives live here. Miley's are right here.]

Fug Madness 2015: Your Final Four


As the sportscasters say, we’ve got some storylines brewing here when the Final Four games tip tomorrow.

1) Rihanna has only once made the final game of Fug Madness — which was back in 2010, when she lost to Kanye’s then-girlfriend, Amber Rose. Now she’ll face off against Kanye’s current lady for the right to return to the finals.

2) If both Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian win in the Final Four, it’ll be a FULL REMATCH of last year’s title game, which has never happened before.

3) If Rita Ora can beat Miley — in a matchup featuring dueling mesh Moschinos — then she will face Kim and deal with their matching plastic pencil-eraser monstrosities.

4) Kim was the runner-up the past two years in a row. If she wins and advances, she has the chance to be THRICE the bridesmaid.

5) This is the second time Lindsay Lohan has been on the losing end of a Fug Madness buzzer beater. In 2012, she lost in the finals to Vanessa Hudgens in the last half-hour before the polls closed, causing a frantic recut of the “One Fugging Moment” montage. And then this week, in the Elite Eight — like Notre Dame and Kentucky in the basketball tournament, in fact — she led the favorite Rita Ora THE ENTIRE TIME and then suddenly Rita clawed back and clinched it by 44 votes in, yes, the last half-hour.

And so:

No. 1 KIM KARDASHIAN vs. No. 1 RIHANNA

I would take Rihanna in a twitter war, a bar fight, a karaoke contest, and a bake-off. Pun maybe intended. But can she dethrone Kim? She certainly kicked Jessie J to the curb with relative ease, and Kim had ZERO problem dispatching Jennifer Lopez. It’s been a clear path for both of them, so maybe this will be the nailbiter neither of them has had so far.

No. 2 MILEY CYRUS vs. No. 1 RITA ORA

So close, Lindsay. So close. But Lady Gaga never stood a chance — Miley leapt out to a sizable lead and held onto it. Just like champs do.

The Final Four polls will remain open a day longer than normal — so, 48 hours, until Saturday — so that you can vote and vote some more. Pro tip: You can vote anew from ALL your devices. It’s not cheating! It’s being RESOURCEFUL.

The final game will be Monday, April 6.

Fug Madness 2015, Elite Eight: Madonna Bracket


No. 1 RIHANNA vs. No. 3 JESSIE J

These two have much in common: They’re singers. They eschew last names. They’re both in the habit of distracting from how pretty their faces are by HOW CRAZY THEIR OUTFITS ARE.
