Grammys Fugs and Fabs: Ladies in Black


Nicole Kidman was at the Berlin Film Festival RIGHT before the Grammys. She must have hightailed it there straight off the plane. I don’t look that good even when I slowly go someplace direct from my house.

Grammys Fugs or Fabs: Lady Gaga


Is it weird that I love that she and Tony Bennett are hanging out all the time now (given that they’re on tour together/won a Grammy together/made an album together/are possibly soulmates)? I feel like Tony probably has a LOT of entertaining stories and advice on a long career, and Gaga probably keeps him feeling young and gets him out of the house and looks after him a bit. It’s possible that I may have written a whole piece of fanfic in my mind wherein Gaga and Tony Bennett sit around every Sunday night and eat a pan of lasagne and laugh and laugh and laugh, while Taylor Kinney just genially keeps refilling everyone’s wine.

Grammys Fug or Fab Carpet: Anna Kendrick in Band of Outsiders


fug-or-fab

I might have Awards Season Blindness — in which nothing makes sense anymore and also I start writing random words that are generally misspelled and eventually everything that comes out of my fingers is like potato pancakes waffle face kombucha — but! I am pretty sure this is good on her:

I mean, right? Yes? Please validate me here. I do keep thinking she either needs a stronger lip or a necklace, to break up the expanse of flesh from forehead to abdomen, but you know what? I almost think either might have been a little cheesy on her, because she’s so small and easily overwhelmed. This might, in fact, be the first time that I could say that Anna Kendrick — whom I love — looks almost…bad-ass adjacent. (Not FULLY bad-ass, as I think she would agree, but delightfully near it.) I’m going to give this to her.

What do you think?

Grammys Fugs or Fabs: Gwen Stefani


Ugh, even those crazy pants look good on her. I don’t know when this happened — I am a native Southern Californian only a few years younger than she is, so of course Gwen has long been a part of my life, a constant red-lipped presence, but I was never a No Doubt mega-fan or anything — but I kind of buy her in…basically anything. HAS GWEN STEFANI BECOME MY BEYONCE?

Grammys Fug Carpet: Paris Hilton


WHEN DOES IT END?!?!

57th GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

And by “it,” yes, I do mean “Paris.” Think of it this way, Hilton: Imagine the kind of press you’d eventually get if you disappeared for four years because you decided to go to college and get a degree in….oh, let’s just say anthropology. People would FREAK OUT if, in 2019, you emerged from a library somewhere and said, “hey, you guys! No, people DID NOT just stop inviting me places. Actually, I decided to take part of my fortune and learn some stuff about other people, and now I’m moving to a remote island in the Pacific to study linguistical development as it happens without the benefit of outside media.” And THEN what if you did it and you were gone, in the field, for like a REALLY, really really long time? And then when you came back, you could write an award-winning book about what you learned? And everyone would be all, “who would have thought that Paris Hilton would become a noted intellectual?” There would FOR SURE be a media storm over this that you, noted wooer of attention on a mass scale, would, I think , find very satisfying.  Eventually. Like, a really long time from now.  A really really long time from now. But it would totally be worth it, I promise. TRY IT.
