Fug File: BET Awards

Who Fugged It More: Miley Cyrus vs Katerina Graham


There’s something very dated-feeling about this.

I don’t know if it’s the dress with giant pocket flaps at the hip bones, or something about the bodice, or the aggressive goldness of the Chuck E. Cheese tokens with which it’s been decorated. But it keeps reminding me of the inappropriately grown-up things people bought at Express and wore to my middle-school formal dances (a girl’s first French twist thinks it needs her first cocktail dress too). It isn’t making me black out with rage, but it’s stale.

Miley’s version was less “our little girl’s NOT all grown up, but don’t tell HER that” and more “when did our little girl get into bondage?”

BET Awards Fug Carpet: Meagan Good


There is something Grace Jones-ian about Meagan’s hair now, and I do at least have to thank her for giving me an excuse on our ninth birthday to mention one of the all-time weirdest, most wonderful dressers in the annals of fugulousness.

Having said that, it doesn’t entirely suit her — which may be why she put herself in a gown so slinky and revealing that she looks like an entrant at Miss Body Condom America 2013.

BET Awards Perfugmance: Mariah Carey

Like an Intermission that’s real thoughtful because it’s long enough for you to wait in the bathroom line and drink and stream an episode of Breaking Bad on your phone? You’re welcome.”

BET Awards Fugs, Fabs and Fines: (Almost) Everyone Wearing White


It was mad crazy hot this weekend, so I totally understand why all these people woke up and said, “hmmmm. What do I have that will prevent me from feeling like I might burst into flames?”

BET Awards Absily Played, Ciara


I didn’t watch the BET Awards this year — although Heather and I got to attend a couple of years ago and it was awesome, so I am irritated with myself that I didn’t DVR it — but I can only surmise from these photos that Ciara has a new workout DVD coming out soon called CI-ABS-RA. (God, that’s terrible. Brainstorm a better title for her Taut Abs In 30 Days in the comments, because I’m coming up dry.)
