Last night at the Grammys, Katy Perry's performance included a swing. Hmm, where have we seen that before?
Oh yes, that's right. When Katy did it in 2009. Except the swing was a moon! (She's had swings in several shows, actually.)
Mariah did it in January of 2010, putting a princessy spin on her swing, of course.
Pink's love of acrobatics has put her on a trapeze-like swing; this is in Switzerland in 2006.
Rihanna posed with a swinging trapeze in a 2009 photo shoot.
Kim Kardashian pretended to be a swinger in an ad for her fragrance.
Of course, one of the most iconic swing moments was the 1992 Coco Chanel ad starring Vanessa Paradis as a literal songbird trapped in cage.
The moral of the story? If you want people you think you're wild, fun, girlish, unfettered and unoriginal, put on a fancy dress and get on a swing.
