If you look to the VMAs for style and fashion choices, you also most likely shop for salami in the health food store. Notoriously known for celebrating hideous fashion choices, last night’s show on MTV was not a disappointment. Basically anyone of note seemed to be trying to outweird the next artist and at the end of the night we came away feeling this show is once again, style over substance.
If you’ve ever asked yourself “Where can I get a pair of Cheetah Print Mejeggings…yes, jean leggings for men?”, Lil Wayne has heard your cries. The long-haired rapper went shirtless, thus showing off his yoga mom body, and got slightly more David Lee Roth than the average Black man could/would/should support. One thing of note, sagging will continue until Wayne decides it’s no longer chic. He is the official fashion choice of teens (and many grownups) across America.
Britney Spears received the Michael Jackson Tribute award and while her moment was ambushed by the BeyJay Baby announcement, we noticed she was wearing a never-before-seen item…a sequined, belted Daisy Duke onesie with ruffled edge. Surely (and hopefully), a custom-made piece.
We don’t feel the need to give Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj (aren’t they the same person?) anymore attention.
Lady Gaga finally wore us out. Yes, this may be a sacrilegious fashion statement…but we expect much more than a West Side Story skit from the Lady who proudly dresses herself in eggs and meat. We love Gaga as much as the next Lil Monster, but the Bruno Mars-meets-Silvio from Sopranos getup got on our nerves and will most likely be soon forgotten. She did score one point…the suit was Brooks Brothers.
Mr. Over-the-Top, Kanye West usually has us talking about his fashion choices (and those of his lady friends) for days on end. With questions surrounding whether he’ll ever design his own fashion line, Kanye debuted his latest shoe, the Nike Air Yeezy 2s during his performance with Jay-Z. West clearly concentrated on his art this year, as his jean outfit seemed more fit for any given Neville Brother than the Louis Vuitton Don.
