Fug Madness 2013: THE FINAL GAME


 

(2) KIM KARDASHIAN vs. (1) JUSTIN BIEBER

Are you ready to cast your final vote in this year’s Fug Madness? Will it be for Justin Bieber — the first man to ever advance to the final game, having defeated the otherwise unstoppable Rihanna, and the seemingly unbeatable Lindsay Lohan, not to mention Lady Gaga, who actually emerged from an inflatable vagina this year and STILL lost? Or will you use your civil might to advance, at last, Kim Kardashian, who took down Kristen Stewart’s Cavalcade of Sheer before destroying her brother’s ex, Rita Ora, who (never forget) once wore a florescent pelvic harness.

I suspect both of these people spend more time thinking about Kanye than they’d like to admit.

Whose fug reigns supreme?

  • Justin Bieber (59%, 5,815 Votes)
  • Kim Kardashian (41%, 4,068 Votes)

Total Voters: 9,858

    This is seriously distressing. They both deserve to win. First ever Fug Madness tie?

        It is so hard. She only wears things that are too small, no matter what size she is, the clothes are always too small. And he only wears things that are too big. I can’t decide who is worse.

          Beiber is 18, I’m hoping he grows out of it. Kim K. should know better. Plus, I just want Kim K. to win because I know she will be here again next year.

          Kim K. for Fug Madness champion ’13 and ’14!

            That was my reasoning exactly. She’s old enough to know better. He’s still young and dumb and making his wacky fashion faux pas.

              Years of being a celebrity could be reckoned like dog years, so I wouldn’t give Bieber the benefit of the doubt on that score. This is contrived swaggery diluted Gangsta lite fug, not much joie de vivre about it …

      It’s really difficult to choose! I see a picture of Biber and say “It’s him.” Then I see Kim and say, “It’s her.” I am going to flip a coin, but seriously this should be a tie.

      You know how people always say “that was the hardest decision I ever made?” Well, that was literally the hardest decision I ever made. I’d be less conflicted switching off someone’s life support.

    Rather disappointed this year to be honest. This fuggery is bad, but I think there were some worse fuggers who should be in the finals. It felt like a lot of this year was based on the person/personality and not on pure FUG.

    • Kristen

      I agree wholeheartedly. The worst of the worst has been given a reprieve because of douche-like behavior. To bastardize a quote from Alyssa Edwards (RuPaul’s Drag Race), “It’s not personal, it’s fashion.”

        True, but luckily, it’s also not world peace. It’s Fug Madness. And since both of these idiots looked AWFUL this year, I don’t think anyone can really say they’re undeserving, right?

          Heather, in addition to the admirable job you and Jessica have done with your fug galleries, BuzzFeed just happens to have a Beiber post up today that features a vinyl (or maybe plasic?) onesie. A vinyl onsie. For real.

          His fub may be young and immature, but it is fully, fully aggressively fug. Leopard print diaper pants? That would just about cinch it for anyone.

          And Kim is just as committed to her fug, and it pains me to think of how expensive all of that fug is. She could be so striking,but chooses awful every time. Every.single.time. Lace, transparency, leather with feathers and/or fur, all together, all in a size too tight.

          Rihanna and Rita were strong contenders but I really think these two are as fug as two people can possibly be. (Plus, Rihanna looked amazing at the Grammy’s.)

            as much as i wanted kristen stewart to face public shame for that godawful fug of a jumpsuit, i have no choice but to vote for ktard. maybe its because i grew up in a generation where my pop idols wore harem pants and were destined for bankruptcy as an adult ( ie mc hammer), or maybe its because i think giving him the title would be a waste because he’d just be kind of excited he won something but also smug because he doesn’t really understand all the grown up words about what it means. and even though she’s much older than justice beaver, at this point someone needs to sit kimmie down and explain it to her like she’s five… kim, this is not fashion. YOU are not fashion. you are making bad choices with your life clothes and you need to stop hurting others if you don’t care enough to stop for yourself. the only way to stop the madness is to accept that it has become just that. pure Fug Madness.

              @steph, I agree with you, and then I realize how caring your proposal sounds, and I just do not even CARE about any kardashian. Then again, I also care not about beiber either. Hmmmm. This IS a pickle.

              Meanwhile, I’ll amuse myself with the thought that Beibs might become DimKim’s next spouse du jour or spawndaddy, and then just imagine the fug on the whole “family”!

        Look at those hideous pants that Bieber insists on wearing. It is not all about personalities. Their clothes are truly hideous.

        • TonyG
          0

          They are hideous; but for my taste just not as hideous (or varied for that matter) as Rihanna or Rita Ora.

          Though I like Biebs in this particular match-up; still, I don’t doubt he (and Kim) advanced as far as they did because they make it hard for folks to like them as people.

          It’s easier to fug someone that’s not likeable, so I understand why personality comes into play for many. I tried hard not to let that skew my take on the fashion though. Don’t know if I always succeeded, but I tried.

          • cebec

            I think a sense of fun comes into it – rita and riri’s choices at least seemed to be trying to be fun, biebs with his misguided and samey attempts at gangsta-swagger and kim’s ‘high fashion’ are fug AND no fun at all. So maybe that’s an influence too… personally i’d much rather caper around in most of rita and riri’s looks than be saddled with the horribly ‘curated’ looks of the two finalists… come on, who hasn’t wondered how fun it would be to prance around in the fluoro harness bike-pants! I can totally see why Rita went there…

    • Sheneve Butler

      I agree D, that Bieber probably made it this far because of his personality, but I think Kim K deserves her spot in the finals. I can’t remember one outfit she wore last year that was decent or fit her properly.

          That’s how I based my vote. JB looks idiotic, but he’s young. We all made fashion mis-steps when we were 17, 18, 19. Plus, a lot of his are the same looks-those dumb-a** pants, the leather tank top. He doesn’t have enough variety. Plus, he’s not a ‘fashion icon.’ Are there any boys out there rushing to copy his style?

          KK, on the the other hand, purports herself to be a big fashionista. Lots of females want to imitate her ‘style.’ She thinks she looks good, looks hot. She’s old enough to know better than to wear a shirt so tight and thin you can see your bra through it and STILL she wore a patterned/colored bra. She’s old enough to know better, period. And she has a wide variety of ugly, ill-fitting clothing. I had to go with KK on this one.

            I agree! I think they both deserve it, but JB doesn’t put himself out there as a fashion plate. KK on the other hand, unfortunately, does and because of that deserves to be judged for her horrible fashion choices.

          • Julie
            0

            Me, too. Even though many commenters had been saying all through Fug Madness that Biebs would take it this year, it still startled me to see him in the lead. Kim’s fug brings to mind words like “regalia” (“fugalia”?) whereas I find his to be repetitive and kind of boring. That doesn’t mean, of course, that he looks good, just that he doesn’t look as spectacularly, amazingly bad as Kim, for all her many furs and peplums. Ah, well. Something tells me she’ll be back next year, unless Kanye starts schooling her in the fine art of argyle, and, actually, especially if he does.

        • Danielle
          0

          Agree! The Beibs is still a teenager, plus many of his worst looks (as featured in the slideshow) were costumes he wore during on-stage performances. Kim, on the other hand, is FER SURE old enough to know better, plus she and her sisters own a clothing boutique. And she obviously thinks her outfits are high-fashion whereas Justin seems like he’s just trying to have fun.

          • MollyD
            0

            This is the reason I voted for Bieber. He is a one off (I hope) while Kim will be back next year and the year after that and the one after THAT ad infinitum…..

    I think Kim is trying to be special and unique in her fug. But I think Biebs is trying to make a style catch on with a generation, effectively replicating it. And that’s evil. My vote was clear.

    Voted for the Biebs. (I may have to vote once for Kim on my work PC just to balance out the disgust I feel for actually supporting that man-child in any way, shape or form.) Kim’s wardrobe is a cavalcade of fug, to be sure, but her variety can’t quite match Bieber’s unrequited desire to make. Those. Pants. Happen. Like “fetch,” those pants are NOT going to happen.

    Also: formal overalls.

    So much fug and only one winner can emerge. Tacky, skanky, vs. WTF, no really, WTF are you wearing fug. I vote for the Toddler Prince. Either one would be worthy of the Fug Madness Crown but because there can only be one it should be the Bieb.

    Those dollar bill, puffied-knee pants – WHAT! ARE! THOSE!?1?! Sweet Lord, how did I not see those before? Those are a crime against EVERYTHING that is good and right with the world as well as pants. The Bieb has to win. The Bieb MUST win.

        I gotta say, I roll my eyes at pretty much everything KK wears, but I feel outright RAGE when I see the Beibs. When I look at him, I’m a rageaholic. I”m addicted to rageahol. I want to flick those stupid tall hats off his stupid little face and kick him in the balls….maybe THAT’s why those pants have all that extra fabric. As a cushion from people’s normal reaction to rochambeau-ing him. (I’m really not a violent person, but when I see his clothes and such….HULK SMASH!)

        • Lynnlynn
          0

          YES. Sing it, Joemama. I could not agree with you more! Kim is awful, but little lord doucheleroy with his stupid leather diapers just sends me right over the edge. Several people mentioned that his Fug is one-note, and therefore not worthy of the title, but I vehemently disagree. As a wise soul mentioned in an earlier round, his is a premeditated MISSION of Fug. He has decided that this is his “look” and that it is amazing. Kim is a misguided fashion- and fit-challenged fool, but once in a great while even SHE manages to pull together a passable look. This kid NEVER does. His age is not even a factor here. Do you actually think anyone that dresses this badly in his youth will somehow become a GQ man of style in his future? No. Don’t agree with me? Well I’ve got two words for you then: Vanilla Ice. Say it with me, ladies: BIEBS FOR THE CROWN.

    I just realized that the black dress with the two side mullets (side mullets!!!!) in slide 21 is the same dress as the beige one in the slide show you ladies did a few days ago showing her various maternity outfit. Sweet mother of god, she liked this “outfit” so much she bought it in two different colors.

    You know, I thought I’d have a harder time voting, but I didn’t. Kim wins it for me. I’m equally annoyed by both, and the diaper pants are HORRIBLE, but y’all, some of the things Kim wears cause me such physical pain. Plus, she’s making her fetus look bad. That’s two for the price of one fug and it’s wrong on every level.

  13. Monkey

    Kim just makes me sad for her (my reaction almost always is to shake her like a little Italian grandma and yell “but such a pretty face!”) but Joffrey Justin makes me want to punch. Hence, vote to the Biebs.

  14. Cathy

    I voted for KK, because those peplum jeans are beyond hideous. (Who would design such a thing? Would they ever look good on anyone?) Also, Bieber is still pretty young, and I think (or hope) that he’ll wake up one day and regret his fashion choices. Kim, not so much.

    • Katherine

      Bieber’s youth is one of the big reasons I voted for him. There’s still hope that he can be shamed out of his folly. KK on the other hand? I think she’s too far gone.

    I cannot pass up a chance to share this most timely article I came across today- statistical proof of Bieber’s fug-ness http://www.buzzfeed.com/amyodell/statistics-confirm-justin-bieber-spent-the-majority-of-the-y

    tl;dr version of the article? He literally spent a significant majority of the year in diaper pants. And the proportion of diaper to normal is growing.

        The horrific thing is that Biebs is getting WORSE! He was at 77% harem pants for the year, but 87.5% for the last month! They need to create a B-movie monster out of this kid’s fashion, it would barely require any effort!

    Man, I was ready to vote for Kim K until the photo of Bieber with the prime minister. I had actually forgotten about that, probably to spare my sanity, but that just meant that the overalls horrified me anew. It’s just such an egregious lapse in taste, judgement, and wisdom. Kim K is tacky as hell, but I think even she would wear something moderately appropriate if she knew she was going to be photographed with Barack Obama. (Side note: that’s never happening, Kim. Not matter how much you suck up to Beyonce and Jay.)

    Brace yourselves. Biebs might just become the first male Fug Madness Champion. A well-earned title, if he does pull off the victory.

    The photo with the UCLA cap reminds me of a campaign I’m starting. I will not rest until I stop all celebrities from giving the peace sign in photos. Particularly that bulls**t sideways peace sign. Boy, you are not Jay Z. Just stop.

    I hesitated, but ended up voting for the Biebs because I think his hideous choices are more impressive when one takes into account the limitations of men’s fashion. I’m grading on a curve, here. A horrible, horrible curve.

      I have to agree with Julia – the Biebs is handicapped by men’s fashion choices and still displaying an impressive array of terrible choices (which are apparently increasing in frequency). He’s got fugly shoes, fugly hats and my favorite pair of harem leggings from junior high. Throw in his choice of attire to meet the leader of his country and I don’t think Kim deserves a vote. (besides that Kim does often have a cute accessory and I can often see where she made her misstep and what she was aiming for.)

    Those pants…. influencing a generation of boys who, let’s be honest, have enough trouble with the appropriate wearing of pants… CANNOT go unpunished. And even though Kim Kardashian doesn’t know how to dress for the occasion (and keep herself covered), at least she knows when to dress UP. Overalls? REALLY?

    Justin Bieber for the win.

    This was such a hard decision… They are both so irritating, and annoying and over-exposed and have such terrible, terrible taste in clothing. But somehow, despite myself (and even acknowledging the crime of the diaper-pant) I have to give Justin some credit….he has at least accomplished something to explain why he is in the public eye even if it is not to my taste, and the industry he’s involved in supports silly outfits. KK Miss-Wanna-Be-Fashionista with her horrible clothes and fake face and plastic body who launched her career by being urinated on is just so fug fug fugly to me inside and out that I have to vote for her. Even though I think she’d look upon winning as an accomplishment.

      See, your last sentence is exactly why I didn’t vote for her. I keep thinking “ignore her and maybe she’ll go away” (or at least take that ghastly white fur and move to the Arctic; if a polar bear sees her and thinks “tasty snack” – well that’s on her).

    As long as intentional fuggers (Beiber, Gaga, Minaj, Perry) are allowed in this contest, it will never be a contest of true fug.
    True fug is… I think I look so great…
    but really they look fug to the tenth power.
    In that respect, Kim should be the winner.
    But Bieber will take it.

      Well, we don’t ascribe intent to these people, and besides, if you intentionally look AWFUL, then it’s fugly, period. By Jessica’s and my rules, they count. And so, it’s a contest of true fug in our book.

      • Carrie Ann

        While I don’t subscribe to this argument, I can understand the point-of-view when it comes to Gaga or even Katy Perry (sometimes). But Bieber looks terrible when he’s just out and about, so it’s not like we’re basing our votes solely on stage outfits. He is really trying to make this saggy crotch, stupid hat, cheapo t-shirt look happen. Why should that be ignored simply because he ALSO looks ugly when he performs?

          I also think… who is it, exactly, that’s legislating what “true fug” is? Jess and I certainly aren’t. It’s a nebulous concept for everyone.

          Yes – what Carrie Ann said. I voted Kim over Rita because Rita seemed to just be having fun with costume-y dressing all the time. But the Biebs seems to take himself so seriously in such a douchey way, I can’t feel the same way about him. I’m so torn. When do the polls close, again?

    • Jennifer

      While I see the philosophical struggle with wanting to disregard people who are intentionally fug for the sake of provocation (cough, Gaga & The Giant Ladyfolds) … I disagree with you looping Bieber into that category. If we’re going to debate intent here, I think Bieber REALLY thinks he looks good & “cool” – I strongly disagree that he’s intentionally looking fug to be provocative. Lil guy hired himself a swagger coach after all, and is attempting to cultivate an image of what he apparently thinks is pipsqueak badassery. I imagine him waking up every morning hoping that it’ll be the day he’s invited to pose on the inaugural cover of “H.A.M. Monthly.” Anyways – for these reasons and various adult diaper-pants/public health concerns, Bieber is far and away my favorite to win. (and not just because I have money on the line here).

        Thank you for putting what I felt into words.

        I mentioned on the Bieber vs. Gaga post that Bieber dresses without irony. I think that Gaga (and Minaj, and Perry, and possibly Jessie J) does dress to provoke a reaction, and is constantly aware of how her clothing is perceived by others. It’s as much a performance as her actual music. And while I don’t think that makes her immune to being fugged, I do think that she and the other ladies mentioned are self-aware enough to know that other people find them ridiculous.

        Bieber doesn’t have that self-awareness. Not only does he genuinely think he looks awesome, he’s also sure that you and I think he looks awesome. The very idea that his taste might be questioned has never even occurred to him. (And in that regard, I think he’s very evenly matched with Kim K., who also gives off the “I can do no sartorial wrong” vibe.)

    See, I think they deserve to be in this final race… Maybe for me it is because of their dedication to Fug clothing. And they both appear to believe they are fashionistas. (Or for him, he is a biebista) I voted for the biebista because he is always fug. His fug knows no bounds. He does even try to change the fug. And he points to his crotch.

    I just had to issue my first-ever vote to the Biebs. KimKard, while tragic, I have to believe is just hopelessly misguided, and can be fixed with a good stylist (as someone said above, at least her hair usually looks great!). The Biebs (LOVE the Toddler Prince moniker!) is deliberately doing the fug in the effort to stand out, and I’m afraid he would resist any guidance offered to him. Not cool. Especially when it involves overalls and a PM.

          I agree. When that was the worst of her fug for the year it was bad. But then, comparatively, it turned into not-so-bad-after-all. I saw that pic this time around and thought,”She almost looks cute.” It’s bad when one of your worst outfits of the year turns into one of the not so bad ones by the end of your run. (Still voted for Beiber though.)

            Well put. So much money, so little taste. While it was ultimately her best look of the year, I note that “tropical boot spats” did not *happen*, fashion-wise, and appreciate that. But as someone else above has noticed, KK’s hair is awesome and that helps a lot in my book. JB often looks terrible from the tip of his backwards baseball cap to the toes encased in spiky kicks, so JB all the way for me.

    While Kim has never been the best at picking clothes for her shape, I feel that right now she’s just confused as to what to do with a preggo body. That and Kanye seems to be a huge influence on what she puts on since most of it is matchy-matchy with his stuff.

    I’m voting for the Biebs because those pants are a crime and who the hell wears gold lame on the tongue of their shoes!

    So many commenters citing good reasons to vote for Bieber OR KK! Normally in cases like this, where the awfulness of the clothes is so evenly matched, I’d just vote for the one whose personality was the most off-putting. Can’t even do that this time, though. I dislike them both with equal intensity. In the end, I went with KK because, as a fellow female, I feel she let our entire gender down.

    This was the hardest vote ever! I wish they both could win: A male and female Fug Champion, perhaps? (I started to say “men’s and women’s” but at least one of these doesn’t qualify).

    KK for the win!!!

    Bieber is just young and dumb. KK has a few years on him, considered herself a stylist when she was first trying to make a big name for herself, and has a fashion brand. Yet, she still manages to come up with some of the least flattering looks possible, and all in sizes too small! The first rule of dressing well is to dress for your body type and KK fails at that constantly. Plus, she had to have skinned skunks for that coat. And ruffle peplum pants!! Does anyone need to hear more??

    Oh man. Usually for me, the dirty fuggers are the worst (Rihanna = mangy bra top, Kristen + Rob P = dirty hair, scungy clothes; Momsen, Kesha and the like = dirty grungy, scungy) but that criteria is failing me here. Both Kim and Justin are clean fuggers. They both put in effort. They both err badly. What to do, what to do…

    I finally, after much soul searching, decided to vote Bieber.

    BECAUSE, often times with Kim, there are several elements to the outfit and maybe 25% of the time, you can find ONE piece of the puzzle that isn’t THAT bad. A blouse, the shoes, the one pair of pants that fit her that one time, you know what I’m saying. A singular saving grace a fraction of the time.

    But there are no decent moments in a Justin Bieber outfit. From stupid hat all the way down to stupid shoes, it’s all friggin awful.

    Also. The pants. Forever FUG.

    • Tiffany

      I agree with your premise, Annabelle, that Kim’s ensembles usually have 1 or two good parts (shoes, etc.). But I can’t decide what is more offensive: Someone who wears 100% horrendous pieces (Biebs), or someone who takes parts that are great and pairs them with things that are completely ugly and/or 4 sizes too small. Biebs picks all the wrong pieces, Kim fugs up the good pieces. Oh, decisions!

      I’m totally with you. Kim Kardashian at least manages to look acceptable once in a while, or wears a piece here and there that isn’t offensive. Whereas Bieber? Never. It’s all bad, all the time.

    Natasha – yes!!! Exactly what you said! KK for the win. The Biebs is just a dopey kid. Kim is a grown woman who should know better! Those peplum pants give me nightmares and her too tight ensembles make me cringe. To me, this was not even a tough decision. Come on, Kim!!

    I actually think Bieber has better taste than Kim Kardashian. Yeah, he’s ridiculous the way he puts stuff together a lot of the time (although sometimes the only (“only”) real problem is the drop crotch pants), but a lot of the individual pieces are actually quite… nice. KK on the other hand just has a seriously awful taste level through and through.

Saw the headline, couldn’t bear to look…

    I thought I was going to vote Little Sir Poopypants all the way, based primarily on OverallsGate. But KK’s cumulative fug won it for me. She dresses worse for her body than Christina Hendricks (no small feat); she skins animals; she wears peplum pants; she’s old enough to know better and is supposedly in the fashion industry . . . I just can’t with her. So I’m shocked she’s behind significantly.

    I predicted this final matchup, and for me the vote is easy. Biebs for the win! Kim occasionally looks OK, or at least acceptable. Biebs, on the other hand, never looks good. Ever. He is a constant parade of giant hightop-baggy crotch-leather bandana-zippperfest. I just… can’t.

    The diaper pants are truly horrible and the dumb overalls — especially to meet the Prime Minister — are nearly unforgivable, but he is only 19 now and has been told he’s great since he was — what, 13? 14? I don’t know, I’m not a belieber — so I think this has to go to Kim. She has so much money and is old enough to know better so it’s just plain bad taste on her part. Kardashifug FTW!

  56. Art Eclectic

    In the end, I had to vote Kim. Biebs was top-flight fugger to be sure, but it was all one-note. The same thing over and over again. Kim displayed real range. No matter what it was, she wore it badly. That right there, is talent and deserves the crown.

  57. PB

    This is a tough one, but I am going to have to give Beibs the nod if for no more reason than I have an irrational hatred for head mics. I also really can’t stand the fact that he struts around like he is some sort of man as opposed to the little, punk ass bitch that he is.

    With that said, KKard is really horrible. She should know better but apparently she does not.

    Hard decision, but I gave my vote to Kim K.. Little Biebs is just a misguided kid, who tries very hard to look badass. He’ll learn.
    Kim K. on the other hand…she really thinks she’s a fashionista when she’s got the tackiest, worst taste ever. And is delusional about which clothes flatter her body shape, pregnant or not.

  59. keekey

    I voted for Bieber in the end. I figure Kim K needs her fug–if she stopped dressing in clothes that looked like Barbarella’s wardrobe mated with the “Dynasty” reject pile and an ostrich, people might start losing interest in her. Biebs, on the other hand, has a career that could only benefit from learning how to dress properly, so hopefully a Fug Madness crown will make him reassess some things…starting with those pants.

    Beiber, possesses the fashion sense of a toddler. I’m waiting for him to start layering on multiple pairs of pants (shoutout to RiRi) and shirts to the point where he can’t move – if you’ve had a toddler, you know what I’m talking about. BUT, at least has his MUSIC to offer the world. The only thing Kim has to offer is herself and allowing us the pleasure of looking at her. When that view is mutilated with her lack of understanding her body and what looks good on her, Kim MUST be doused with a cold dose bucket of “What Not To Wear” and given the win.

      I think you forgot the quote marks around “MUSIC”, because me and all the Muses weep tears of blood at the awfulness of his sound.

      As for the fuggery, those things he wears on the lower half of his body may well be the ugliest example of fabric-torture ever. I suspect Stella McCartney was involved.

    It was hard, but I went with KK.

    Both of them look like shit. I guess in the end it was because I think Kim really wants to be applauded for her fashion sense and has made a business out of it. Her fashion sense is, and always has been, awful and involves way more scraggly hair accents/ possible fur/general horror than I am comfortable with. He may be trying to make those pants happen, but he isn’t being actually selling his look. (In any way: literal or metaphorical)

    Plus, I’m kind of curious how Biebs is going to walk when the crotch of his pants starts hovering around his ankles and want him to continue on and go there. That could be amusing, and I just pictured him buying a pair of paints by size: (inseam- 3″; waist- not used; ass- narrow; crotch length- 28″, XXXX loose)

    Also, can you picture a tailor measuring his inseam, per his pants specs? While laying on the floor with a 12″ school ruler and a carefully hidden smirk? Heh. I don’t know if any of those are custom, but one can hope. At least somebody is likely amused, if so.

    I went in with a real bead on Bieber because those pants make me want to vomit, but in the end went with KK. The Biebs is an idiotic kid, and those of us of a certain age know that when a teenager gets on a kick (style or otherwise) you can only hope they get over it in time. Maybe when Justin comes out he will develop better fashion sense.

    As for Kim, she is old enough to know better, and really has decent raw material to work with, so I can’t let her slide. (She and Christina Hendricks should go in together on a stylist?) Plus, the prude in me really objects to her parading around–to all who will pay attention–her deliberate and probably ill-advised out-of-wedlock pregnancy.

    OMG, for just a second there I mystically conflated an image of pregnant KK and OctoMom in my head. Coincidence? I think not.

    You know how Kanye dresses pretty ridiculously a lot of the time? In just about every picture where he’s with Kim, he’s giving her a “Seriously???” look. When even Kanye thinks your outfit is out of hand, you need to reconsider your choices.

    Although, to be fair, he may well also be giving Beebz the same look, they’re just not being photographed together.

    This is a nail biter! Bieber’s pants are the single worst piece of clothing this year. But, KK has had a much greater variety of fug. So, which wins? Commitment to fug pants (fants) or a smorgasbord of fug?

    For this one, I had to take a whole new approach. Because it was Just Too Hard.

    So, instead of looking at the slideshow, I closed my eyes and thought of each, to see what outfits I could remember. We’ve seen a lot of both of them just this week, so I thought there’d be plenty of horrendous images of both burned in there, and wasn’t sure this would work…

    But it was easy. Diaper pants. A multitude, a plethora of diaper pants, of leather, of sweatshirt material, of fabrics I don’t need to KNOW about, materialized on my inner forehead-screen all at once. Immediately followed by Prime Minister Overalls.

    BIEBER FOR THE WIN!

    Here’s the thing. To me, Kardashian is just dressing how she always dresses, and has dressed for years. It’s always the same: black, white, some lace, some fur, all of it too tight. The only difference is, this year she’s pregnant, and how does she deal with that? By dressing exactly the same. Yes, it’s awful, but it’s all just a blur to me now.

    WHEREAS – Bieber went over and above this year. I noticed that fug. It produced an emotional response in me. I stared at pictures, slack-jawed, trying to make sense of it. It’s like he looked over his look books the last couple years and said, I can do better. I can! So, for me, I think that effort and commitment even (especially!) in one so young, deserves my vote.

  85. Erica

    I voted for the Biebs. Kim is expressing her own style, and while its questionable, at least she’s in control of her fashion choices. I think JB is letting his stylists use him as a terrible paperdoll, and it’s totally inauthentic.

    I voted for Biebs because I think as a (pre)teen idol, he needs to be more concerned with the message he’s sending. No one genuinely admires Kim, do they?

    When I look at Kim K, I think – no, girl. Just no.

    I vote Kim because her fug is constantly varying. And terrible. I mean, the only common factor is that she consistently dresses in the most unflattering way. But she does it with pants, dresses, shirts, skirts, shoes, hair, makeup, skunk-colored fur coats, etc, etc. I feel like a majority of Bieber’s fugs are his awful awful pants. And I have extra annoyance with Kim for running a “fashion” line and looking like this. So, I am really hoping the percentages change and Kim wins this thing. She truly deserves it.

    I am of two minds about this. In a way, KK is famous for the way she looks. So, in a sense she should know better cause the way she looks is her career. But, in a way, she is also famous for showing stuff we don’t need to see (pardonning any and all lace/seethroughandwhathaveyou) and in a way, dressing in something awful also garners media attention so there is something to be said for it.

    But then Bieber, is a singer. I mean, I don’t like his music, but dude can sing and alot of people do like his music. So while I am sure the way he looks matters in his career he doesn’t really need to go this much overboard. As for those who think he only does it on stage: slide 22.

    So obviously I voted for Bieber, cause KK is actually very good at dressing for what she needs: attention. She is amazing at this, I cannot blame her for it. Yes she wears bad stuff, and we look at her here for the bad stuff she wears, but the comments on here are also: “but those shoes are nice” Succes, she just sold those shoes by looking bad. She did her job.

    As for Bieber, he thinks he looks cool.
    He doesn’t.

    I have secretly rooted for the Toddler Prince to win from the very beginning, so he of course got my vote.

    I won’t normally vote for a performer’s fug – it’s their job to look edgy and different. (See re: Amanda Palmer, who routinely looks awesome yet technically fugly. Also Gaga, who routinely looks insanely fug, yet somehow kind of awesome – even when emerging from a giant inflated vagina or wearing a dress made of steak. Their outfits are more like art, less like tasteful fashion.) But… Bieber never looks kind of awesome. He just looks stupid and twerpy. All. The. Time. As I have said many times, I want to flick him and put him in time out.

    Kim…. well, Kim occasionally – very, very seldom, but occasionally nontheless – looks OK. The same cannot be said for the Toddler Prince. I will make no excuses for his age, considering he has oodles of advisers and actually hired someone to help him dress (or, excuse me, “swagger”). That kid from Modern Family does just fine, and I doubt he had anyone but his mom to help him.

    The Toddler Price MAY. GO. ALL. THE. WAAAAYY!

    I voted for Beibs, because there’s never a redeeming piece in that bundle of Fug. But it was hard. I kind of wished I’d voted Kim, because it no skunk should die to appear on such a monstrosity.

    In the end, can we just do a King and Queen of Fug, like someone suggested earlier?

    I voted for Biebs all the way until now. But I still think KK is worse, so I voted for her now.

    While Kim tried her hardest, I believe Bieber made the most COMMITMENT to fug. I know we are not supposed to consider their non-fug outifits, but I feel that he tried for fugly on EVERY possible occasion. He was faced with the meeting with the prime minister of Canada, and did not waver – he AMPLIFIED his fug. Kudos, to you sir.

    Gold lamé moonboots and formal overalls vs. peplum jeans and Pepé Le Pew throw rug poncho. Such a tough choice. Still, voted for the Biebs because, well, OVERALLS TO MEET THE PRIME MINISTER! KK might look a mess if she met the President, but at least she’d make an effort.

    I think I’m suffering from fugtigue. I have no thoughts or observations about these two. I definitely think they’re deserving of this place here. I’m sure others would have selected someone else to be in the championship round, but these two make sense to me. Sure, there could have been others. But Fug is so subjective. There’s a terrible, beautiful mystery to it. And these two seem right to me.

      At least it’s just Fugtigue, not PFSD.

      If you start to get nightmares about plastic shoes, or find yourself hyper-alert for pajamas in the grocery store, you might need some professional chocolate.

        Or transparent lace-encased torpedo nipples jutting at one’s face whilst on a lunchtime shopping trip on Madison Avenue. That’s the stuff of my nightmares. Hmm, reading that back over, it sounds like the nipples were on their own shopping trip. I’m leaving it.

    Really, we should be voting for the one we want to go away the most, per the Fug Madness curse.

    But I want them BOTH to go away – ergo, a Lilo/Hudgernaut situation would probably be ideal.

    At any rate, I voted the Biebs on the strength of the pants (and also because I am seriously considering buying spiked sneakers, which – I really shouldn’t, especially since I have about ten years ON the Biebs)

    I for one am thrilled to see Captain Nappy Pants in the final. Just after Christmas I had a dream (bear with me) that Fug Madness was over in 24 hours, and I’d missed every single round. Even unconscious, I think I was in a cold sweat at the thought of missing all the fuggery and Heather and Jessica’s winning commentary. What’s more, Janet Jackson won! Even in my dream I thought, ‘what the hell?! Has Janet Jackson even appeared on GFY this year? What about the Beibs? And K.Stew’s sheer monstrosities?!’ So as one of only two people whose fuggery haunts me even while unconscious, I had to vote Beiber for the win.

    I came into this thinking I would vote for Bieber, but then I saw Kim’s ruffled peplum pants patterned with that looked like molting reptile skins. Plus, I felt an actual shudder go down my spine. Terrible as JB’s clothes might be, those roomy-crotch pants are at least more comfy than KK’s skintight everything.

    This comment is -at the same time- the nicest thing I can say about Kim Kardashian and the most devastating insult I could hope to throw at Bieber: Kim disgusts me less than Justin Bieber.

    RIDDIKULUS! If anyone needs to conjure a quick defence against boggarts, bring into mind the poopy pants of doom …

    Am I the only one basing my vote on the fact that KK is WITH CHILD? Like, that is the one time you are allowed to look super comfy and she still looks beyond crammed into everything she is wearing. How can it be comfortable for her? I have so many questions.
    Biebs is your and I dunno maybe I just have a soft spot for him but I just give him a pass on those dumb pants because he is young and at least he’s not wearing super skinny uncomfortable pants.

    I thought Beibs was America’s Canadian Sweetheart? What is this yucky personality that supposedly got him to the top? I mean, his facial expressions and crotch grabbing definitely sold his nutso outfits, but I think it was the clothes making his personality seem bad rather than the other way around. If I was going for the fugly personality, I’d vote Kim, but I’m Team JB. He brought it, head to toe! Yes, the pants, but the shoes and accessories really elevate him to the next level. Kim is just so meh. She’s had fuglier years, and she really didn’t seem inspired this last year. It was kind of sad. Maybe that explains all the black lace. She’s mourning her past glory of shiny new fugness, and settling into midlife boring fug.

    the blazing, *epic* fug on display here was almost too much to bear! also, i had not seen those “pants” in slide 22 before, and i just about passed out from the can’t. Kim looks like she’s headed for Fug Madness glory for next year, but the Biebernator has earned his crown in spades.

    I don’t think I’ve ever taken so long to make a decision on my fug madness vote before. Ultimately, even though Biebs seems to be winning, I ended up giving KK my vote. She’s older and should know better, plus she managed to fug in two entirely different ways: regular and preggo-shaped. The fuggery involved in trying to dress like you are not pregnant when you clearly are is what tipped the scales. Embrace your beautiful roundness, KK!

    I’m pretty shocked. I cannot believe biebs is going to take this. His fuggery IS aggressive but it lacks variety and imagination. Devotion to diaper pants does not a fug madness champion make – but I see I am overruled. Thankfully I have COMPLETE faith that KK will be back…with maternal vengeance next year. No doubt she will dress baby kimye (also known as the first sign of the apocalypse/ blue ivy carter’s future first love/ blue ivy carter’s future-future nemesis) in matching HORRIFIC outfits. (can babies wear leather?).

    I am agog. I was predicting a win for Man-Baby Diaper-Pants ALL YEAR, and now, in the final moments, I find myself forced to vote for Kim K. What does this mean? I… I… I need to lie down. Although surely whoever you voted for, after going through that cavalcade of fug, we all need a lie-down. Here we are, folks, we have cast our votes and the fug will fall where it may and we have survived.

    I need a drink.

    Damn, that was tough. In the end I gave it to KK. She’s older, she should know better. And she’s just so smug about her fug. JB is performing. Most of the time……I would love to hear him interviewed in about 10 years when this ridiculour poo-catcher fashion is just so out to hear his regrets.

      Most of her outfits while pregnant are not even eligible. (Oscars to Oscars)

      And I dressed less fug than her pregnant and I was pregnant 16 years ago when they believed maternity wear= dressing like a 6 month old baby. So I think she has plenty of clothes at her disposal that she Atleast could look better! I would be fine with with her throwing on a pair of sweatpants!

        A pair of sweatpants would be SUCH an improvement.

        As long as they’re not the Bieber-style sweatskants, which, oh dear, is probably what she WOULD wear…

    Is it just me or does the Beaver look like a girl in photo 2 (the first one of him/it)?
    Such a hard choice. KK is truly hideous, but I am on the bandwagon of it being deliberate. keeping her in the press til she pops out Kimye, then the MASSIVE endorsement from some weightloss firm and a major makeover and there she is.
    Twitboy, OTOH, evokes a truly visceral response. I cannot remember ever wanting to slap another human being as much as I do him. What a ridiculous little jackass. Overalls to meet your Prime Minister? Bitch, please.
    Coin flip time.

    I had to sleep on this to make sure I wasn’t being swayed by my desire to install a Canadian as the Fug Madness Champion (seeing how we lost out on a Canadian pope and all). Plus good points have been raised about The True Meaning of Fug, youth versus experience, one note fug versus fugriety and there was that one time with those peplum pants. But in the end, I went with the toddler prince. I don’t think he dresses his body any better than KK does and his fug, while one note, is aggressive. It’s not that he thinks he looks good – it’s that he thinks he looks different. Plus, as my mother would say, he wears nothing but shmatttes. It is a shmattery at his house. Feh.

    Also, of the Fug Girls break with tradition and also have a Single Worst Outfit of the Year, I co-sign on behalf of the vagkin.

    That totally looks like a giant inflatable chicken carcass, not a giant inflatable vagina. I suppose she’s emerging from the chicken’s nether region, but since chickens don’t have vaginas it seems more likely that the orifice in question would be an ass hole. But the fishnets! I’m so perplexed. I googled this chicken asshole/vagina business and at some point during her performance Lady Gaga’s face is projected on to the thing, with the orifice serving as her mouth, which I guess is why the thing has no labia. I’ve just expended way too much brain power on this.

    Sorry if somebody already said this, but my criteria was, ‘Does either of them look good, in any way’? Kim K. sometimes looks good, in spite of what she’s wearing, so Biebs got my vote. I can’t wait until next year when Kim K.’s maternity wear is fair game.

    I think the Bieb’s win has more to do with his headline-grabbing insane behavior than being more fug than KK, but I think we can ALL agree that these two should be banished to an island where we never have to see their crimes against fashion again. Perhaps that should be the fug prize for winning?

  125. McRathburn

    I’ve been voting for these two all season, so this was a tough one! I had to go with KK. An 18 year old douche who dresses like one is all fug and good – but in the end, it all came down to the fact that KK has terrible taste, too much money, and no one to be honest with her about what size she really is.

    Well, it’s REALLY a tough one but basically, Bieber makes me smile (painfully) whereas Kim makes me laugh (hysterically) … and that’s what clinched it for me.
