Fug File: VMAs

Who Fugged It More: Grimes vs 2 Chainz


This might be my favorite one of these EVER. Let us begin with Canadian musician Grimes, a.k.a. Claire Boucher:

I don’t even know what to say. Do I commend her for matching her chunky gold necklace to her ornate pants? Is there any point to discussing the dirty kicks she’s wearing with them? Why are those cut like pajamas? What is on her arm? Is that a blood-pressure cuff? Did she anticipate flying into a white-hot heart-stifling rage at any point in the night, and if so, did it happen when she laid eyes on this man?

VMAs Fine(??) Carpet: Lady Gaga


I don’t even know how I feel anymore.

On one hand, I almost laid an egg that time she came dressed as one. On the other, doesn’t this feel like something that would have landed in the middle in an Unconventional Materials challenge on Project Runway where they had to shop at a store called Tarps ‘N’ Stuff? Isn’t there some middle ground between ovum and meh?

VMAs Who Fugged It More: Iggy Azalea vs Ciara vs Iggy Azalea


Yes, you read that right — Iggy Azalea wore not one but TWO see-through outfits, which means this is going to be a dogfight. Poor Ciara. All that effort into looking super naked, and some random Australian singer takes her thunder and flosses with it. In other news, I just imagined Iggy Pop in these outfits and now I can’t unsee it. You’re welcome.

If you're still conscious, please vote on which is MORE egregious:

VMAs Fug or Fab: Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift


“Hey, Tay.”

“Hey, Sel.”

“Are we wearing the navy tonight?”

“I don’t know. Are you going to hang out with that ass Justin all night and leave me alone?”

“HE’S NOT EVEN COMING TONIGHT.”

“And how do you even KNOW THAT? I KNEW YOU WERE TALKING TO HIM.”

“OH MY GOD YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND THE WHOLE NIGHT DISSING HARRY STYLES YOU HAVE TO BACK OFF WITH THIS.”

“Fine.”

“Fine. So. Navy?”

“Navy it is.”

VMAs: Crazy Performance Fugnanigans


Or as I said to Jessica, the night Miley Cyrus became LMFAO Minaj. Do we think her tongue obsession came BEFORE this outfit, or because of it?

Note: Sadly this isn’t a Fug the Hellshow of the whole thing; just of what people wore during notable performances. I couldn’t bring myself to go into this again THAT deep, and I say that as someone who watched Sharknado TWICE. So you know this was bad.

VMAs Fug or Fab: Rita Ora


In our NY Mag piece, we pointed out that this is what happens when you have to go out wearing a throw rug out instead of your pants. AND YET:

Do you approve?
