Fug File: Billboard Music Awards

Billboard Music Awards Fugs and Fabs: Everyone Else


In which I serve you a melange of random celebrities from (close to) the A list, all the way down to… well, let’s just say a place where letters have no meaning.

Billboard Music Awards Well Played: Taylor Swift


Would it be out of place at Sochi 2014? Not entirely.

But I’m going to give this one to Swifty. Yes, it’s crazy short and it’s calling out for a triple lutz, but it’s also a) an awesome jewel tone, and b) super sexy, the combination of which feels fresh on her. There’s a welcome self-assuredness to that much blue and that much leg, which from the Queen of Omigosh!!! feels like a nifty step forward.

Billboard Music Awards Fug or Fab: Selena Gomez


I can’t tell if this is a case of Right Dress, Wrong Girl; right dress, wrong styling; or just… wrong.

The bright parts are fun, I think; I wish she’d gone with a lighter eye and a slightly hotter pink lipstick to play off them. The shoes are fine in theory but don’t deliver on any of the dress’s neon whimsy. My concern is with the rest of it. I feel like I’m seeing more contours than is strictly necessary, and I think maybe someone who has a bit more… authority… would fit the gown better. Selena Gomez is super famous, I get that, but something about her isn’t particularly commanding (yet?). Imagine it on a Miley, a Kate Hudson, even a January Jones. Is it better? Is it groovy? Or is it still just kind of a jumble of burst highlighters and torn paper, like a junior-high kid’s backpack?

Billboard Music Awards Fug: Jennifer Lopez


“HOLA LOVERS. I have a secret. It is why I wear windows for clothes all the time. Do you want to hear? Come close: I am bored. I miss Marc. It is so BLAH when I do not have to make weapons out of toothpicks, or build up immunity to rat poison so that my blood is always murder-y.”

Billboard Music Fugs: Justin Bieber


The fugpidemic continues apace:

Kid, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE AIR BETWEEN YOUR THIGHS BEFORE THEY BECOME YOUR KNEES.

Billboard Music Awards Fug or Fab: Miley Cyrus


Look, this is daft. But after the mind-numbingly unimaginative naked-crazy of Jennifer Morrison, I appreciate a girl who decides to go somewhere dressed as one of Liberace’s drawing rooms.

What do you think?
