Lady Gaga has rocked some bold and unique fashion choices–cue meat dress and stuffed animal ensemble. Guess she ran out of ideas and opted to copy Selena’s white belly baring bra and pants outfit.

5. Demi Does Selena

From shaving the side of her head to coloring her hair blue, Demi Lovato proves she loves to borrow trends and make them hers. Proof? She just couldn’t help but steal Selena’s Amor Prohibido cover look.

Fashion-forward stars, like Selena, love to show a little skin. In her ’95 performance, she kept her sparkly jumpsuit ultra-sexy with a belly cutout. When Zendaya Coleman, channeled her inner-Selena, she opted for a more demure chest cutout.

AOC’s Fans Took Part In An Amazing Meme Campaign To Celebrate Her Bday And It Will Humble You

AOC’s Fans Took Part In An Amazing Meme Campaign To Celebrate Her Bday And It Will Humble You

Talk about a take back.

Yesterday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her 31st birthday, and to pay tribute to her, some of her biggest fans used the congresswoman’s signature looks and iconic words. The result was a mass of Tik Tok and Twitter makeup tutorials set to a mashup of Kendrick Lamar’s 2017 track “Humble.” AOC’s recent spack down of Representative Ted Yoho, who allegedly called the congresswoman a “crazy,” “disgusting” “f*cking b*tch” also made an appearance.

In an ode to AOC’s iconic takedown of Representative Ted Yoho this past July, users donned amazing lip colors and AOC’s finest words.

The AOC Birthday celebration meme saw users do their makeup and style their hair while mouthing a speech AOC gave this past July. Some of the videos featured facts about AOC and her accomplishments in office.

“I am here because I have to show my parents that I am their daughter and that they did not raise me to accept abuse from men,” the user’s mouth while the audio clip of AOC plays.

Olympic medalist Laurie Hernandez even took part in the trend.

Earlier this summer, Rep. AOC admonished Rep. Ted Yoho on the House floor after he called her a “f*cking b*tch.”

According to reports, the confrontation occurred when the two members of Congress were passing each other on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. Rep. Yoho allegedly confronted AOC and accused her of being “disgusting.” This occurred after she made comments that New York’s spike in crime had been caused by the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Rep. AOC rebuked Yoho for his lack of apology at the time on the house floor soon after.

“It is cultural. It is a culture of lack of impunity, of accepting violence and violent language against women, an entire structure of power that supports that,” AOC said before adding “Mr. Yoho mentioned that he has a wife and two daughters – I am two years younger than Mr. Yoho’s youngest daughter. I am someone’s daughter, too. My father, thankfully, is not alive to see how Mr. Yoho treated his daughter. My mother got to see Mr. Yoho’s disrespect.”
