La La Was The Best Kind Of Petty At The Met Gala And Social Media Took Notice

The Met Gala is the most extravagant fundraiser probably in the world. It costs $30,000 a ticket per person to attend and getting your own table can cost up to $275,000. Everyone is there to make a fashion statement – or in the case of La La Anthony, a relationship status update.

La La Anthony’s dress was killer at the Met Gala. So much so, that she made the front page of the Daily News with her avant garde look.

She made it to the front page, right up there with MTA news and puns about The Mets, so clearly, big news.

But we couldn’t help notice the subtle jabs she was throwing out at her recent ex, Carmelo Anthony.

She captioned this stunning photo “Unbreakable” with a black emoji heart. As we reported previously, Carmelo Anthony, was rumored to have fathered a child outside of their marriage, ending what many saw as a New York power couple’s reign. We assume the “shattered” look of her dress, that is still intact, along with the caption, is a statement about how you can try, but you can’t destroy her. It’s a really powerful statement.

No matter where on the Met Gala carpet she was, she was stunning.

Peering over her shoulder and making eye contact with a photographer or two, from this angle her dress seemed like a thunderstorm. It was like lightning making it’s way all the way around, with a storm brewing under the surface.

From this angle you can — wait, what’s that?

I count 8 fingers, excluding thumbs of course, but what’s this?

She’s wearing how many rings?

The space La La left, where her wedding ring used to be, was large enough to land a helicopter on.

It seems that La La was able to flip her middle finger, by using only her ring finger.

Social media definitely noticed.

Some people couldn’t believe how bold she was.

They continued to find any reason to bust Melo’s chops for his lack of a championship ring.

These jokes have to hurt after all this time, especially because they’re true. Where yo’ ring Melo?

Folks noticed that her petty level was ?.

She did exclude her thumbs, but yes, every finger except *that* one.

What’s more, is that she knows the internet clowns Melo for not having rings.

But she still did it to him anyway.

What’s even more than that, two of the rings are snakes.

She’s lowkey calling him a SNAKE!

Well, folks, let that be a lesson to you.

Don’t double cross La La, she always gets the last Ha Ha.


You know she’s thinking “got’im.”

After Two Months, We Finally Know The Fearless Girl’s Purpose And Ethnicity

By now you may have seen the Fearless Girl statue that appeared on Wall Street on March 7, 2017. She appeared quietly that night, but is inspiring hundreds of thousands of women and men throughout the country. The statue depicts a young girl with her hands on her hips in defiance as she faces the iconic Charging Bull statue. While the sculptor of the Charging Bull is so insulted by the Fearless Girl that he is trying to have her removed from her spot despite her ever-growing popularity among the public, waves of people continue to be influenced by this brave little girl. But brace yourselves, a new bit of information was just revealed from the sculptor and it may bring a new wave of excitement.

The brains behind the Fearless Girl has expressed some things people might not have known about the statue: the Fearless Girl is Latina.

We have finally learned that the Fearless Girl is Latina and there’s a major reason behind that decision.


Devika Bulchandani, the president of McCann XBC and managing director of McCann New York, told Advertising Age that they wanted Fearless Girl to be Latina so that she was universal and so she could “be an inspiration for everybody – fathers who have little girls and husbands who have wives [people who are] white, black, Indian – it should speak to the broadest audience,”

The Fearless Girl is promoting the increase of more women to corporate boards.

Basically, McCann New York partnered up with State Street Global Advisors and created the Fearless Girl as an ad directed at the 3,500 companies they invest their client’s money into, according to Advertising Age. But, just because she might have been created as an internal ad of sorts doesn’t mean she isn’t inspiring women and girls to go after their dreams.

The Fearless Girl literally showed up in the middle of the night facing the Charging Bull on Wall Street. Her popularity and inspiration are not slowing down.

According to The New York Times, the Fearless Girl was supposed to be a temporary installation for one month but the growing popularity and demand by the public prompted Mayor Bill de Blasio to announce that the statue will stay put until International Women’s Day in 2018. The Charging Bull sculptor has claimed that the appearance of the Fearless Girl violates his rights as an artist and has been trying to get the statue removed. Never mind that he dropped his sculpture in the middle of the night in 1987 and public demand is what made his sculpture a permanent staple in the Financial District.

Fans of the Fearless Girl have started a petition to make the statue a permanent part of Wall Street.

As of the post of this article, the Change.org petition has received more than 37,000 of the 50,000 necessary signatures.

And Mayor de Blasio seems to understand the importance of Fearless Girl “taking up space” on Wall Street.


Mic drop.
