Last night, pop stars and celebrities attended the American Music Awards in LA. Trust a music awards ceremony to bring out the big guns, and of course by bringing out the big guns, I mean being praised for dressing in a way that is not socially acceptable anywhere or anytime else, which only makes social convention the big loser and weird dresses the big ol' winner.
Everything Nicki Minaj does charms me. Her wigs charm me, Roman charms me, Martha charms me, her bride of Frankenstein outfits charm me, when she wears bullshit trinkets all over her pants I feel nothing but rapidly spreading warmth inside, and even though her intergalactic jumpsuit and pinned-up Victorian skirt in wrinkly taffeta aren't her best work, I'm still gonna get behind my girl. Taylor Swift, in the other hand.... She's just this black hole of blandness. Taylor's so risk-averse that the girl even remembers to not mouth "muthafuckin" while being (supposedly) caught up in the moment of singing along to Nicki Minaj's performance of "Superbass."
