Miguel Performs New Songs And Gets Flirty With The Angels At The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Just recently, Miguel was singing a sweet Disney duet with Natalia Lafourcade in the music video “Remember Me” from “Coco.” This week? He’s crotch-grabbing at the sexiest fashion show in town. You can’t say he isn’t versatile.

Miguel performed “Told You So,” the next single from his upcoming album “War & Leisure.”

The performance, which aired on CBS, was intercut with behind-the-scenes footage of Victoria Secret models preparing backstage. Referred to by Victoria Secret as “angels,” the models were outfitted with various styles of wings. Models strutted down a long catwalk that looped around Miguel, who performed in the center of a giant stage.

Performing the song live for the first time, Miguel made sure to put on a show by grabbing at his nether-region to excite the crowd.

Shades of Michael Jackson. Miguel continued to sing flirtatiously to the models throughout his performance, holding hands with several of the models as they passed by.

Here he is singing directly to Alessandra Ambrosio, who closed out the performance.

Miguel took to Instagram to document his favorite moments of the night.

Miguel captioned his photo with Ambrosio, “Been smiling all day about last night,” making it pretty clear that she made Miguel blush like a schoolboy.

The “Adorn You” singer led several of the models, including British Model Leomie Anderson, by the hand down the catwalk.

That look she’s giving him is definitely like, “Okay, I’ll let you hold my hand. This time.”

Here he is being coy with Frida Aasen.

It almost looks like he wants to be the model in this shot.

Miguel was also cheesing pretty hard when Georgia Fowler wrapped her arm around him.

He then performed “Pineapple Skies,” another track from his new album.

Bella Hadid made her way down the catwalk during this performance. Their interaction was one of the most talked-about moments of the night.

Hadid made sure to shout Miguel out on social media, too.

Especially when MTV Tweeted about the moment, but left him out of it. ?

No worries though, it looks like Miguel was enjoying himself plenty without being recognized by MTV.

His upcoming album, “War & Leisure,” is out on December 1st and features a dope remix of “Come Through And Chill” featuring J. Cole. The song is their third collaboration together. If it’s anything like “Power Trip” from J. Cole’s 2013 album “Born Sinner,” or the mega-hit “All I Want Is You” from Miguel’s debut album, it’s sure to be a banger.

ABC went all out over the weekend with their second round of “The Disney Family Singalong” and man will it ease your worries.

If you didn’t already tune into the television special when it aired the first time around on April 16, the latest episode is definitely one to join in on. ABC started the new program in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic and is meant to rally families, friends, and celebrities together for a night of entertainment, laughs and songs. The new series has already featured some of Disney’s most beloved musical numbers from its classic films which are sung by the top musicians currently in the game.

Last month, in April, stars like Christina Aguilera, Demi Lovato, Beyoncé, and others gathered around their cameras to sing to families across the country for “The Disney Family Singalong.” The event, which was hosted by Ryan Seacrest, saw performers in their home environments using minimal equipment and “a whole lot of harmony” to get fans watching to join in on the fun. To make things seamless, the lyrics which featured Disney’s most popular songs were displayed at the bottom of the screen.

Anyway, for Mother’s Day, ABC kicked off a second episode of the special and it was pretty dang magical.

For “The Disney Family Singalong: Volume II,” ABC really reached for the stars, wrangling in the likes of Katy Perry, Idina Menzel, and John Legend.

But the best part of the night came when Miguel and Christina Aguilera joined forces to sing a bilingual rendition of “Remember Me” from Coco.

During their portion of the singalong special, Miguel and Aguilera belted out the lyrics to the Disney-Pixar classic singing both in English and Spanish. Making the performance even more special, an all-female Mariachi band joined in to bring life to the song’s melody.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Was Cancelled For 2019 And We’re Pretty Much Fine With That

VictoriaSecretShow / Instagram

Since 1995, fans of the big time lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret have tuned into its lavish annual show wherein models for the brand to display its most elaborate costume lingerie. But now it’s goodbye angels, bedazzled bras and wings and memes. 

This year the Victoria’s Secret Fashion brand has announced that it has officially canceled this year’s show.

The internet launched into a frenzy last week when it was announced that this year’s show was canceled. 

According to reports, Stuart B. Burgdoerfer, chief financial officer and executive vice president of the brand’s parent company L Brands, announced last Thursday morning during a conference call with analysts that the show had been canceled. According to Variety, the decision to cancel show was out of a desire to appeal to the “evolve the marketing.” In a write up by Variety it is aid that the Burgdoerfer underlined that the show had no ” immediate impact on sales of its bras and underwear.”

“Did we see specific material impact on short-term sales response to the airing of the fashion show, as a general matter the answer to that question is no,” Burgdoerfer said during the conference call. “So if you’re like, ‘Oh my God, Stuart, are you freaked out about the day after the fashion show result and what’s going to happen?’, it did air at different times over the years and we didn’t see a material impact on the next few days’ results.”

Users online were quick to show the divisiveness of the decision with comments on Twitter.

The  bombshell announcement that the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been canceled has caused internet mayhem. While supporters of the brand refused to accept the brand’s cancellation of the show others argued that the brand’s show has proven to be consistently problematic. In fact, two years ago, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show proved to be plagued by a series of hot messes almost from the start.

First, various models and talent meant to be featured in the show, which took place in Shanghai, failed to secure visas, including model Gigi Hadid. Though her absence was suspected to be over racist behavior. Then media outlets and bloggers had a hard time getting permission from Chinese bureaucrats to film the event at all.

Once the show aired, it was filled with some pretty cringeworthy moments of cultural appropriation, models caught singing the N-word, no models above a size 4 and a TV edit that has Twitter and Chrissy Tiegan epically POed. It felt more like a shit show than fashion show.

On top of this, the brand’s annual show also has been under constant criticism 

Stuck in an early era that beckons back to the early 2000s when the show started and brands hadn’t quite yet embraced body positivity, Victoria Secret failed to embraces models of all sizes, ethnicities, and abilities on their runway. The underwear company has been accused of not hiring women of color — especially dark women — for their campaigns. Last year the manufacturer gained criticism after the company’s chief marketing officer Ed Razek of Victoria’s Secret’s parent company made disparaging and anti-trans comments in an interview with Vogue magazine. During the conversation Razek rejected the idea that Victoria Secret would ever have a trans women walk on its runway. “No. No, I don’t think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy.”

For the most part users against the brand’s hiring practices applauded their decision to rebrand.

Speaking about the decision a Twitter user replied  “hopefully rebranding means a wider range of sizes and a more diverse slew of models,” a sentiment that other users agreed with. 

“I agree. Honestly, after watching Rihanna‘s SavageXFenty show and seeing the diversity in skin tones, shapes, ethnicities, and the actual performance level, I wasn’t even planning on watching the Victoria’s Secret show,” added another, referencing Rihanna‘s highly-inclusive lingerie fashion show in September. Another user said, “Good. It’s time for them to rebrand, bc their entire image is early 2000’s and non-inclusive.”

“people are real life upset about transphobic/fatphobic ass victoria’s secret show getting cancelled as if there aren’t better shows happening now and in the future(fenty),” another user wrote.

Avid fans of the brand and its show decried the decision saying it was one made over fear of sensitivity.

“ever since Victoria’s Secret cancelled their fashion show every skinny basic white girl has been poppin out of nowhere to let us know they’re transphobic/fatphobic with no shame lol. Victoria’s Secret hasn’t been cool since yoga pants freshman year of high school. Get over it,” one user asserted.

“Canceling the Victoria Secret fashion show bc it showcases ‘unrealistic beauty standards’ is f—ing ridiculous lmfaaoo those girls work so hard to be on that stage. The level of sensitivity is absurd,” one user wrote.“Because ppl are so sensitive nowadays the Victoria secret fashion show got cancelled ? I’m pissed,” another replied.

Others slammed the amount of attention the cancelation has been receiving. 

“the fact the Victoria’s Secret fashion show being cancelled has more media coverage than A FUCKING PURGE HAPPENING IN CALI COLOMBIA shows how South American Countries are put into minorities, please change this ITS DISGUSTING #prayforcolombiaanother user replied.

Which is… tbh a pretty good point.

During his announcement on Thursday, Burgdoerfer said that their upcoming marketing plans for VS will not be “similar in magnitude to the fashion show.”

“We recognize and appreciate that the communication of the brand, the offerings, the emotional content of Victoria’s Secret is obviously an important thing,” Burgdoerfer said in his announcement Thursday.“[The show] was a very important part of the brand-building of this business and was an important aspect of the brand and a remarkable marketing achievement… And with that said, we’re figuring out how to advance the positioning of the brand and best communicate that to customers and that’s among the things that [Victoria’s Secret chief executive officer] John [Mehas] is focused on.”
