Fug File: Fug Madness 2012

Fug Madness 2012, Sweet Sixteen: Charo Bracket, Part II


(2) RIHANNA vs. (11) ROBYN

As one of you brilliant readers pointed out, Rihanna’s given name is ALSO Robyn, so I am privately thinking of this one as THE BATTLE OF THE ROBYNS.  It is also The Battle of Two Women Whose Songs Have Led to My Getting Caught At a Stoplight Singing Along Dramatically. Let’s sing it out.

(4) ASHANTI vs. (8) ALEXA CHUNG

This is the kind of matchup I really love, because both ladies have worn some seriously awful outfits, yet I think both ladies would rather DIE than wear EACH OTHER’S outfits. It’s like diametrically opposed poles of fuggery.

(2) JESSIE J vs (14) KE$HA 

KeSHIFT-4ha can’t match Jessie J for omnipresence, but can she do it with potency? And I don’t mean the strength of the theoretical odor I assume permeates her hair, although I suppose that counts too.

  • Jessie J (46%, 3,706 Votes)
  • Ke$ha (54%, 4,426 Votes)

(4) FERGIE vs. (9) KATIE HOLMES

One on side, an admitted former meth-addict turned maker of embarrassingly catchy tunes. On the other, a possible Scientologist/former teen star. Two women enter, ONE WOMAN LEAVES.

  • Fergie (66%, 6,002 Votes)

Fug Madness 2012, Sweet Sixteen: Bjork Bracket, Part I


A note: The slideshow format worked well for the Kardashian play-in game, but because we can only technologically do one per post, it seemed like an overwhelming idea for the first two rounds. So we’re testing it out again now that we’re down to one game per bracket per day, to see if this makes it easier to judge someone’s fug arsenal. It also tends to expose imbalances, but don’t let a lesser library deter you; sometimes quality wins out over quantity (see: Juliette Lewis, most years, and Stella McCartney upsetting Boobs Legsly this year).


 

(2) LADY GAGA vs. (6) LINDSAY LOHAN 

It feels right that these two should meet, somehow. Lady Gaga has an album called The Fame Monster; Lindsay may have let fame turn her INTO a monster. Both ladies carry a strain of innate fuggery that’s quite virulent, regardless of whether it’s being deployed for art or by accident. Sheer is sheer. Fug is fug. Let the games begin.
