We’re big fans of mashups around these parts (what do you mean, “what do you mean?” Aw, you love ’em, you know you do). Well, you’re going to love this one: Adele’s Rolling in the Deep mashed up with Britney Spears’ Till the World Ends. It’s Friday. It’s time to get your post-apocalyptic freak on, and you could do a lot worse than to start by dancing around the apartment to this. It’s particularly good if you’ve just had a breakup: Dude, you pissed me off so much, I’m going all Mad Max on your shizz AND taking the planet with me.
Oh, and you are NEVER getting your Nirvana CDs back.
Well, it was a great Grammys, wasn’t it? Whether you were into Epic FAIL or Epic Win, it was one of the most entertaining live broadcasts of the past year at the very least.
To start with: LLCoolJ. Just yes. Yes, yes, yes, yes, YES!
Mini Minaj at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards
Also: Mini Minajes = adorbz. Sophia Grace and Rosie are the two little girls who rose to fame (and Ellen appearance) by being adorable and performing a Nicki Minaj song for their proud parents, who posted it on YouTube, where it went viral. Believe me, WAY more entertaining than “Roman,” and I ain’t even Catholic!
Anne Get Your Gonch
Anne Vyalitsyna is apparently a Victoria’s Secret model. Let me tell you, Victoria couldn’t have any secrets in that dress. She looks like she rushed out of the ladies’ room with half her skirt tucked into her tampon.
Fergie is straight laced
Fergie’s own husband tweeted, “I see London, I see France…” On the other hand, yay for bringing Granny Pants back. No doubt a contract from Playtex is en route.
Kelly Osbourne attributes her makeover to a bat-free diet
Surprise success of the night: the formerly-revolting Kelly Osbourne. How classic! The hair even coordinates with the tats!
And now: ADELE.
First of all, although I can’t find any still photos of it, I loved her second dress of the night, the one in the video. The Armani in which she started the evening was pretty enough, but frankly looked like a plain old vintage piece in that sparkly polyester everybody’s Nana used to wear to parties where she wanted to feel sexy at sixty. This is one of the downfalls of black; the details become invisible. The second, cocktail-length dress, was pretty, old-fashioned, with just the right amount of detailing highlighted by cream underlay, and the fact that the big silver metal zipper in the back (which was inexpertly sewn) was visible every time she turned around was, frankly, completely endearing.
Win! All the! GRAMMYS! ADELE!
Also, I MUST have this lipstick, if not the entire look. Internet, can you help me?
Of course you can. Presenting: Adele at the Grammys: the makeup tutorial!
