People Stared At J.Lo’s Butt, Cardi B Was A Walking Period, And More Things You’ll Only See At The Met Gala

@eltuiterdejorge / Twitter

If you missed the highly exclusive 2019 Met Gala last night, not to worry–we’ll always have the chisme. Last year, Cardi attended the infamous Gala for the first time dressed like royalty, and gave us all the Nicki Minaj drama we wanted.

This year, Katy Perry struggled to get a hamburger suit on, fans are arguing over whether Cardi most resembles a period or Nicki Minaj’s gown last year, and so much more bizarre drama went down. Vamos a ver.

Behold: Queen Cardi.

Rumor has it that it took 35 designers a collective 2,000 hour to sew this dress together. It also took four men to hold up her train, following her wherever she went last night.

Of course, the Bardi Gang took to Twitter to talk about Nicki Minaj’s outfit.

@OhioHomesteader / Twitter

Was there ever a feud? Probably, a little bit, yes, but the fanships are at war over it. Who do you think looked more on the camp theme? Tbh, Nicki Minaj told one reporter that the “interpretation” of camp in her outfit is on her designer.

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj fans are saying that Cardi B just remixed two previous Met Gala dresses.

@OfficialDruggie / Twitter

It’s true that Cardi B’s dress was a showstopper, and some Twitter folks are wishing they could nap under what they think looks like the most comfortable duvet ever.

Other folks are applauding Cardi’s take on “Uterine Lining Eleganza.”

@theAljohnCapz / Twitter

Twitter, you are a trip. Cardi B once said, “Never Again” for being mistaken as a vagina, so she went one step further. We can’t wait to see her Instagram story about how we shouldn’t make her red dress about periods.

The fanart is here because it has been 24 hours so there has been enough time.

@eltuiterdejorge / Twitter

“Cardi B #MetaGala appreciation post.”

Honestly, this is the most solid way to portray her period-inspired dress. This is either a way for Cardi B to take a big stand for women, or she was just really digging a red dress this day.

Honestly, once again, Cardi is lifting up women.

@LisaAnnWalter / Twitter

Whether she knows it or not, women are loving this look and honoring their periods all over Twitter. So far, Cardi hasn’t acknowledged this trend.

Also, did Offset and Cardi sext over the Internet?

@iamcardib / Twitter

Their music is one ode to sexting, but dang, these newlyweds are living their best life. We ship a man who publicly, in all caps, worships his “wifey.” Good for them keeping their relationship alive and fresh in the 21st century.

This anonymous man was caught red-handed staring at J.Lo’s booty.

@Instyle / Twitter

The Internet is currently deeply relating to his experience. They are also trying to figure out who the young man is that risked it all for a quick glimpse of the singer’s backside.

J.Lo savagely walked right past a struggling Katy Perry trying to don a hamburger costume?

@AlejoRoa21 / Twitter

She’s too in character with Camp to deal with these outlandish shenanigans. Also, she is already slaying her look so why would she take the time to help someone get into their hamburger suit?

Salma Hayek kissed Jared Leto’s creepy doppelgänger head, as one would.

@mladyrebecca / Twitter

It’s camp, so we don’t really know what’s going on here, but it seems as if Jared Leto brought a replica of his entire head with him. Who hasn’t wanted to do this to make sure everyone in the room knows who the best dressed it?

Salma and Penelope Cruz’s best friendship seems stronger than ever.

@leiaftsolo / Twitter

These two spent the night hanging out with each other and staring into each other’s beautiful brown eyes. We stan a sun goddess and a moon goddess coming together as one.

Camila Mendes and novio Charles Melton made their Met Gala couple debut.

@avery__thompson / Twitter

We’re all wishing anyone would look at us the way these two lovebirds look at each other. That’s a wrap, until next year!

The ‘Vida’ Trailer Is Here And It’s Beautifully Queer And So Exciting

Vida / Starz

Believe it or not, it’s only been a year since Starz debuted critically acclaimed “Vida” had its first season, but fans feel like its been a lifetime. Inspired by the short story “Pour Vida” by Richard Villegas Jr., Starz is giving us all what Eastside LA really is: brown and queer woman building our futures.

The trailer for Season 2 is finally out with just a few weeks left to wait until we can binge all ten episodes of the GLAAD award-winning series. That’s right–an extra four episodes than last season.

The writer’s room is going to be all Latino again.

@deadline / Twitter

Virtually everyone in the room is female-identified and half of them are queer. Showrunner Tanya Saracho has explicitly said that this is a show about gentefication, but as a queer Latino, the queerness “had to be there.”

Emma is really working out that internalized homophobia.

@feromoon / Twitter

Which means that Season 2 is going to be less panic attack-inducing and more steamy than the last season. We also get glimpses into a queer wedding–whose, no nos sabemos.

Fans are really, truly screaming for Emma and Cruz’s ship.

@miightymorphin / Twitter

Yes, Cruz and Emma met at Emma’s mother’s funeral, but together, they’re creating life for #VidaStarz fans everywhere. If we’re to believe what this trailer is dishing out, these scenes are just a teaser for what’s to come.

Emma and Lyn finally begin to rebuild their late mami’s business and maintain its identity.

@DutchAneela / Twitter

The sisters didn’t know that their mother, Vidalia (“Vida” for short) was queer and owned the bar with her nonbinary partner, Eddy. Now, Eddy, Lyn, and Emma are all working together. Of course, in Season 2, it seems Eddy will be recovering from the assault that left them in the hospital at the end of last season.

The trailer alludes to more conversation around colorism both in our own culture and outside it.

@AguaAzulMorena / Twitter

We see the new addition, Raúl Castillo, as a handyman telling Emma “Mexicans, we don’t usually do things like that. When she claps back that she is Mexican, he’s quick to tell her: “Could’ve fooled me.” We see Emma confiding in her friends who tell her directly that she’s “passing,” which quickly cuts to a scene of Emma crying.

Other themes certainly include the tremendous amount of financial stress the sisters are under. We hear Emma talk about foreclosure and we see flashes of emotion across everyone’s face.

Oh, and the tagline for the season is that it’s “operating on Chingona level.”

@AnnisAnnismhdi / Twitter

Mari asks a friend if she feels like she has her shit together. Answer: “F**k yeah, I’m operating on chingona level.” We also see Mari wearing a bandana around her face, marching in the street at night. This is the kind of energy we could all use in our lives.

It also looks like Lyn is going to take to the stage this season.

@tangotime92 / Twitter

The first scene in the trailer shows Lyn tapping on a mic. What will the sisters make of their mom’s bar this season? What will Lyn make of herself?

The sisters are “ready to buck” this season.

@k0ppie1 / Twitter

Don’t think when Emma tells Lyn that they have to “really buck up if this is going to work” that Lyn doesn’t reply with, “I’m ready to buck.” It sounds like they’re going for a “swanky, Instafamous lounge” look for the renamed bar, “Vida.”

The first two episodes already premiered at Tribeca Film Festivals, and writer Chelsey Lora made a statement at the panel.

@ChelseyLora / Twitter

Caption: “New red carpet clutch tradition. On my way to our amazing @VIDA_STARZ premiere at #Tribeca. Please support our show by binging it May 23, I promise you will laugh & cry. #FuckICE. #supportLatinx #abolishICE #VidaStarz”

However, you’re honoring this Season 2 trailer.

@maritzaaimz / Twitter

Light your candles, brujas. Channel the poderosa chingona vibes Starz is giving u all.
