It finally happened. Of course it finally happened, because the term “humanity” is merely a suggestion. More
One of the more hilarious aspects of the deeply stupid fallout from Miley Cyrus‘ VMAs performance is the amount of hand ringing, pearl clutching and declarations that “the world is going to end” from otherwise reasonable people–as if Miley Cyrus is the first pop star to behave in a sexual manner.

A long time ago, this would have passed for “pretty racy.” In 2013, however, a sheer plunge to the navel is kind of standard. If you can’t see vagina, it’s barely news. More
Much has been made of one young female performer named Miley Cyrus stripping down to her flesh colored underwear at this year’s VMAs. This is pretty silly, considering nudity (or near-nudity) has been a time honored tradition of this particular awards show for some thirty years running. From Christina Aguilera‘s underboob to Marilyn Manson‘s pasty white butt, people have been getting their body parts out since the VMAs were but a twinkle in a Viacom executive’s eye. Here’s a small sampling of VMA nakedness through the years. More
If you have gone on the internet today, it’s physically impossible that you are not yet aware of Miley Cyrus‘ triumphantly atrocious VMAs performance, which was arguably racist, eye rollingly predictable, and a sign that America is dead inside. Bodysnarking aside, most of the bad things one might say about it are justified.
But what if it was all just a big misunderstanding? What if, rather than consciously appropriating the culture of economically disadvantaged African Americans to make herself look naughty, Miley simply never learned to tell the difference between people and accessories? Remember, this is someone who didn’t go to high school.
Rather than join the chorus of finger-pointing, I would like to step in to educate Miley in a constructive fashion so as to prevent such missteps in the future. Hence, I give you: an edutaining tutorial on how to tell the difference between accessories and human beings. Click through the slideshow to check your answers. More
Gift bags are always great, but none are so awesome as the gift bags celebrities and other VIPs get from big events like the MTV Video Music Awards – and this year, the contents are Brooklyn-themed and totally fantastic. Although, there are some seriously questionable add-ins… More
Children of the late nineties rejoice! Legendary boy band *NSync has just made a bunch of people very happy by announcing that they will reunite to perform at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards…even Justin Timberlake, who totally doesn’t have to do this. Angry little mall goth that I was, I was never that into *NSync growing up, but can certainly appreciate their cheesiness in hindsight, especially from a fashion P.O.V. From skin-tight muscle tees to weird shiny coats, the *NSync archives are a treasure trove of bad late ’90s/early 2000s fashion, confusing hairstyles and inadvertent homoeroticism. Let’s look back on their top 12 finest moments. More
I’m sorry, I’m confused. More
The 2011 VMA’s have happened to us. I tried to be positive and root out the best dressed. Here is a gallery of everyone else, from the ridiculous to the intensely ugly to the simply fame whoring. Hope you like sparkly silver sausage casing, because everyone (Demi Lovato, JWoww, Vanessa Hudgens, Kim Kadrashian) all got together before the ceremony and coordinated their outfits. …When you’re finished, you can also check out the after party looks. More
The VMA’s are reliable for two things: bad fashion and terrible medleys. This morning, I picked up the pieces and tried to decipher who among attendees I could deem “best dressed.” The following gallery depicts my psychological deterioration. If you have a little more time to spare, here are all the nominees for worst dressed and here are some looks from the after party. More
I think it’s safe to say that the thing that went through everybody’s mind when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift at last year’s VMA’s was, “this would make a great porn.” And fortunately, there are people whose job it is … More
“A friend of mine has a big farm in the desert, and she picks up feathers and roadkill for me, then makes it into clothes,” says Ke$ha. “I think it’s cool to wear roadkill. If I died and somebody wanted … More
It’s 2010. Not 1993. Not 1998. And certainly not 2002. The days of glitter are over, people. So stop wearing it so it can stop being sold. More
