Here Are The Grammy’s Best And Most Boring Fashion Moments

Last night was “Music’s Biggest Night!” —aka. the Grammys. All the pop stars came out to perform and take home awards for the music we’ve been listening on repeat over the last year. And while this night isn’t quite as elegant and frothy as the Oscars, Grammy attendees still serve fancy, theatrical and tbh, kind of whacky fashion. The award ceremony allows for an “Anything Goes” policy when it comes to dressing up —so we rounded up the most exciting, and most yawn-inducing fashion moments of the night.  

Best: Billy Porter’s shady fringe

Porter, who hands down won the award for just the most, served us a whole moment on the red carpet when the rhinestones that hung from his hat started to open up, revealing the actor’s face.“Get on my nerves, and the curtain closes!” Billy Porter explained of the motorized fringe curtain lining his glitter-encrusted wide-brimmed hat. Turns out the look was a moment of appreciation for the other Billie [Eilish]. He once told his stylist Sammy Ratelle that he loved Eilish’s face nets. So here it is; face nets, but make it Billy Porter. 

Best: Demi Lovato

Among the many performances at the Grammys last night, perhaps one of the most anticipated was that of Demi Lovato. After a year and a half since her overdose, Demi returned to the stage singing a new song that brought the audience to tears—and to their feet for a standing ovation. The singer stood onstage in a white gown that featured a studded corset belt and puffy floor-length skirt. The look was simple, angelic and simply perfect. The Christian Siriano gown was a perfect way to highlight Demi’s return to the stage. 

Best: Alicia Keys’ shimmering armor

Alicia Keys started the night by paying respect to the late NBA star, Kobe Bryant, who sadly passed away yesterday during a helicopter crash. “To be honest with you, we’re all feeling crazy sadness right now,” said the host for the night. “We’re literally standing here heartbroken in the house that Kobe Bryant built.” Boyz II Men joined Keys on stage to sing “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye to Yesterday”. Standing in the middle of the trio, Keys looked statuesque in a shimmering Atelier Versace gown that accentuated her figure. 

Best: Lizzo’s Old Hollywood style

Lizzo’s look for the Grammys last night was glam and fabulous like the performer herself. The  Old Hollywood silhouette of her Atelier Versace gown was brought back straight to modern day with glittery embellishments, extra AF nails and an actual fur stole. No tiny handbag on sight this time but I mean… the Jessica Rabbit realness was next level. 

Best: Cardi B serving #bodyconfidence

Cardi had us all fooled thinking she wouldn’t be attending the award show after she was nowhere to be seen during the red carpet. But thankfully, our Latina queen showed up and showed out in a dreamy see-through Mugler look. The nude, sheer gown with floor-length sleeves had crystal detailing covering the singer’s entire body in glimmering stripes. Cardi was not up for any Grammy nominations this year but took home the award for Best Rap Album at last year’s ceremony

Worst: Camila Cabello

Camila walked the red carpet, sans boyfriend Shawn Mendes, in a strapless black gown. Decked out in Versace she looked beautiful but we missed her bf.

Worst of the Worst: Joy Villa

“If I’m not known for my music, I might as well be known for my ridiculous fashion choices” —Joy Villa, probably, every time she decides what to wear to a red carpet. The Pro-Trump singer has taken it upon herself to flaunt her pro-conservative politics at the annual music event —we’ll say it again for the people in the back: Annual. Music. Event. The red, white and blue ensemble however, showed off Villa’s belief that Donald Trump should be voted back into office featuring the words “Impeached & Re-elected.” After using the Grammys as a political stunt for the past six years, we’re left wondering if she’ll ever make music as memorable as her statement dressing. 

Worst: Gwen Stefani’s weird performance and dress

So during Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s performance of “Nobody But You,” both singers were off-key and awkward —but that’tsnot even all of it. Stefani inexplicably wore a Dolce & Gabbana dress that felt vaguely culturally appropriative with its iconography and headdress (this wouldn’t be the first time for her). Idk about you, but I think, maybe they should just stick to flirting on The Voice and releasing holiday singles.

You Can Still Watch Kobe And Gianna Bryant’s Tearful Memorial Service

CNN / Twitter

It was a sad and reflective day at the Staples Center today as fans and friends of the late basketball player Kobe Bryant gathered to celebrate his life as well as that of his daughter Gianna Bryant. The memorial held in their honor saw guests speak about their lives, passion for the game of basketball and love for the people they left behind.

Here’s a look at the top most emotional moments from the memorial today.

Christina Aguilera’s “Ave Maria” performance

The six-time Grammy Award-winning singer Christina Aguilera took the stage at Staples to perform “Ave Maria” for Kobe and Gianna Bryant’s memorial service.

Shaq reflected on his rivalry with Kobe.

Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant’s long time competitor, opened up about life as his teammate.

“We fought and we bantered back and forth with offhanded remarks, but make no mistakes, and you folks thought we were on bad terms, and when the cameras were turned off we would wink at each other and said, ‘let’s go whip some ass.'”

O’Neil also shared a sweet anecdote about their relationship as teammates. “Kobe and I always maintained a deep respect and love with one another. The day Kobe gained my respect was when the guys were complaining, and they said, Kobe’s not passing the ball. I said I will talk to him. I said, Kobe, there’s no “I” in team, and he said, I know, but there’s a “Me” in that m**********r.” Shaq recalled he returned back to his other teammates and said “Just get the rebound, he’s not passing.”26 min ago

Michael Jordan described Kobe’s death saying “a piece of me died.”

Michael Jordan had long been attributed to being Kobe Bryant’s inspiration for his successful basketball careers. Speaking about learning about Bryant’s death, Jordan said “When Kobe Bryant died, a piece of me died.”

Kobe’s wife Vanessa brought the stadium to tears with her speech.

Though Kobe’s wife Vanessa gave her speech early on during the memorial, her’s was by far the most sentimental and emotional. Speaking about her daughter Giana, Vanessa recalled how she was “very thoughtful and always kissed me good night and kissed me good morning. There were a few occasions where I was absolutely tired from being up with Bianka and Capri, and i thought she had left to school without saying goodbye. I text and say, ‘No kiss?’ And Gianna would reply with, ‘Mama, I kissed you. You were asleep and I didn’t want to wake you.’ She knew how much her morning and evening kisses meant to me, and she was so thoughtful to remember to kiss me every day. She was daddy’s girl, but I know she loved her mama, and she would always show me and tell me that she loved me. She was one of my very best friends.”

Speaking about her husband Kobe, Vanessa recalled how “A couple weeks before they passed Kobe sent me a sweet text and mentioned how he wanted to spend time together, just the two of us, without our kids, because I am his best friend first. We never got the chance to do it. We were busy taking care of our girls and just doing our regular everyday responsibilities. But I’m thankful I have that recent text. It means so much to me. Kobe wanted us to renew our vows. He wanted Natalia to take over his company and he wanted to travel the world together. We talked about how we would be the fun grandparents to our daughters’ children. He would have been the coolest grandpa..”

Whitney Houston’s Estate Released Images Of Her Hologram And Basically It’s As Scary As Seeing La Llorona

@1043MYfm / Twitter

Last year when the world learned that the estate of the later singer Whitney Houston planned to send her hologram on your, there was a mass of objections and outcries. Now that a sneak peek of the tour has been released, fans have dug in their heels.

“An Evening With Whitney : The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour” will begin on February 25 in the UK.

While Houston’s death occurred eight years ago, her estate has decided to bring her back to life for fans by giving her a new tour experience. According to The New York Post, “‘An Evening With Whitney’ was designed with Whitney’s image in mind, Pat Houston, the singer’s former manager and head of the Whitney Houston estate, said. Whitney planned on giving a more intimate, unplugged-esque tour before she died. And while that never took place when she was alive, the production team behind the hologram has ensured her vision will happen posthumously.”

“We had a discussion about her doing ‘Whitney Unplugged’ or some type of ‘Evening with Whitney,’ and that was really her idea,” Pat Houston said according to the Post. “It’s a dream that was realized by her. So that’s the production. This isn’t something that we’re just putting together. This is something that she wanted to do, and I get very emotional watching this because it is so close to what she wanted. The only thing missing was her, physically.”

Whitney fans have taken to Twitter to voice their horror over the hologram which, in all honesty, is alarming to see at first.

Literally so many fans have been left speechless.

And so many of u shave too many questions.
