Fug Madness 2012: Madonna Bracket


(1) NICKI MINAJ vs. (16) KATHERINE HEIGL

(2) JESSIE J vs (15) CASSIE

(3) BOOBS LEGSLY vs. (14) KE$HA

(4) SARAH JESSICA PARKER vs. (13) MELISSA GEORGE

(5) GINNIFER GOODWIN vs. (12) SHENAE GRIMES

(6) LEA MICHELE vs. (11) ERIN WASSON

(7) KRISTEN WIIG vs. (10) MIA WASIKOWSKA

(8) SHAILENE WOODLEY vs. (9) JAIME KING

We don’t do fictional characters, so the offerings of Lemon Breeland herself are off the table; fortunately, Lemon’s portrayer Jaime King whipped out a couple doozies herself. Lea Michele was a popular pick among commenters, but is it her good luck — or bad — that she gets Erin Wasson right off the bat?

    Lea “Pose Hard” Michele can’t stand up against the literal SHRIEK OF HORROR that Erin Wasson drew from me with the outfit-that-must-not-be-named.

    but does Erin Wasson have the Collective Fug of Lea Michele?

      For me, the sheer magnitude of fuggery is blinding. Then again, this is my first Fug Madness, so I’mma think on it.

    I have no idea who “Cassie” is!

      Cassie Ventura, Diddy’s girlfriend. We just did a slideshow of her that’s not eligible, but she wore plenty that is.

      yay! I’m not the only one! Who is Jessie J while we’re at it?

        Jessie J is an English pop singer – she has that song “Domino” out right now, it’s charting pretty well in Canada. And she had that song “Price Tag” with B.o.B. a few months ago?

    Erin vs Lea is a toughy. In general I think a body of fug trumps a one time fuggary.

    Am I insane to think Jesse J might take the whole thing? Not the biggest body of work, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in anything that wasn’t stunningly bad. I mean, her signature look seems to be shiny, chest-high leggings.

    Going with the 12 seed upset over the 5 in GG because it’s just… oh, Shenae Grimes, HONEY, and… well… these shoes.

    And THIS is why I struggle with the eligibility criteria. Do you vote for Nicki Minaj — who is making a conscious effort to look as outrageous as possible — or for Heigl, who looks bad when trying to look good?

    I totally understand and accept the criteria, but my POV is that the “winner” of Fug Madness is always the one who is trying and failing, rather than the one who is trying and succeeding. Heigl for the first round upset.

      Agree 100% with Dave.

      I irrationally dislike hiegal, and genuinely enjoy the Naj’s look, even though it is tragically cracktastic.

      Yup, there’s certainly some good matchups in this bracket (Ke$ha v Blake Lively too). I can see much debate ensuing.

      I’m with you all the way, Dave…but historically, we are not in the majority. The pics of the “trying and succeeding” (too look crazy, that is) are too fun, I suppose.

      This is exactly my dilemma with Legsly vs. Ke$ha. Kesha is pretty much the definition of fug, and yet I feel it would be a shame waste Boobs’ amazing ability to fall short of her intended mark. If only we could include what partners are wearing as Leo would definitely have boosted BL’s chances. Damn I’m getting frown lines from this one

        Yeap, exactly, Heigl and Legsy make me clutch my pearls whereas Minaj, Kesha and Jessie J make me look at them like a rabbit blinded by flashlights.
        Oh well, it feels good to be an minority, we’re avant-garde!

    surprised with Ke$ha low (high?) seeding. i know she’s been sort of m.i.a this year, but really? 14?

    Wiig vs. Wasikowska. Will that be a battle of the “wah waaahs”?

    I demerit anyone who has the gall to go by just one name, other than Cher, Bjork, Charo, or Madonna who have earned their monikers. That seems to reflect Fug Of The Soul. Now, I don’t mean the nicknames here, like Boobs, but those who start out their entertainment career with such inflated egos, like Ke Buck Ha.

    I feel that K Hogel is gonna knock out The Naj…. She has worn some fugly clothes this year.

    (5) GINNIFER GOODWIN vs. (12) SHENAE GRIMES
    (6) LEA MICHELE vs. (11) ERIN WASSON
    Look out! These two are gonna be nasty. How are the first two not seeded higher? Good gracious they were fugly this year.

    Yow, this is tough bracket. Ginnifer Goodwin vs Shenae Grimes. And Jessie J vs Cassie. I am already feeling the loss of one great competitor in each of these categories, no matter who takes round 1.

    Pose Hard VS Lil Ms Clavical is melting my brain!! And yet, also, a dream come true.

    I’m already thinking I gave SJP waaaaaaaaaaay too much cred in this bracket. Looking a hot mess is just something routine for her now, kind of like how the rest of us get in our hot yoga on Thursday nights.
