2017 Grammys Worst & Best Dressed

Now that the 2017 Grammys are over, it’s time to return to #TrumpWatch, right? Well, hold your horses there, eager beaver. First, let’s talk about last night’s red carpet event. There were some…interesting fashion statements going on.

From a woman with a dress made of old-timey music discs (Are CDs still around?) to a man dressed like a 90s Power Ranger villain, tonight’s fashunz were certainly….buzzworthy.

So, that leaves us with plenty to work with regarding the Worst & Best Dressed for the 2017 Grammys.

In no particular order…

Worst

Jaqueline van Bierk

This would have been a great Lady Gaga costume…in 2009. Sadly, whatever this actress was trying to do beyond Party City couture was lost…just like the old relics glued to her dress.

Taraji P. Henson

We’re disappointed in Taraji. This was her moment to truly shine after Hidden Figures did so well at the box office. Unless she’s about to surprise us with a Karate Kid 2 announcement, we’re not understanding this evening’s choice of wardrobe.

Katy Perry

attends The 59th GRAMMY Awards at STAPLES Center on February 12, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

While the hair looks dazzling, any illusion of her outfit looking well-put-together is shattered the second our eyes reach the bottom of her dress. As with Taraji and that CD thief, this getup is truly perplexing.

But not as perplexing as this next one.

Goldar Cee-Lo Green

Apparently Ultraman is about to attack the United States, and our only hope is Metal Cee-Lo. That’s actually kind of a cool name. Nevertheless, cosplay belongs at Comic-Con, not at the Grammys.

??? (Random Trump Supporter)

When attention-seeking goes wrong…

Nevermind the fact that she’s so desperately trying to make notoriety for herself with in-your-face Trump support. The dress doesn’t even look stitched properly. I mean at LEAST put in SOME effort.

Best

Jason Derulo

attends The 59th GRAMMY Awards at STAPLES Center on February 12, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

This outfit shouldn’t work. It really shouldn’t. There’s just something about the swagger, the cornrows, Jason’s posture, it just…works. We were pleasantly surprised by this.

Adel

attends The 59th GRAMMY Awards at STAPLES Center on February 12, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

Adel consistently brings classy gowns as her big guns to red carpets, and this year’s selection did not disappoint.

Demi Lovato

attends The 59th GRAMMY Awards at STAPLES Center on February 12, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

Ms. Lovato is simply STUNNING in her ensemble. The hair, the makeup, the tan, everything simply WORKS!

Jidenna

at The 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards at STAPLES Center on February 12, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

The Classic Man himself, Jidenna radiates masculinity and unapologetic unique-ness while serving you that all-around gentleman flavor.

Rihanna

attends The 59th GRAMMY Awards at STAPLES Center on February 12, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

Rihanna is, without a doubt, emerging to become a soon-to-be fashion icon in her own right. There are so many looks we’ve gotten from Rihanna. At what point is she going to stop slaying us?

Tracee Ellis Ross Becomes First Black Woman to Win Golden Globe Award in 3 Decades

Tracee Ellis Ross Wins the Golden Globe for “Best Actress in a Television Comedy or Musical” and makes history.

The “Black-ish” starlet’s win makes her the first black woman to win the award in 35 years. That’s over 3 decades, folks. Is it starting to sink in that minorities are extremely underrepresented in Hollywood? For some of you, of course not.

Petition Launched to Block Homophobic Kim Burrell From Ellen Show

When will they learn? Homophobic Kim Burrell (that’s her unofficial title now #NoApologies) recently came out and made some very alarming statements about the LGBT community.

Basically, she called us perverts and said we were going to die this year. So for the average LGBT person, the usual fare, right?

As to be expected, that very community is striking back with a petition to cancel her appearance on the Ellen Degeneres Show. Want to see what she said for yourselves? Tuck in below, my dears.

What’s your favorite Nicki Minaj song?

Look. Despite her bizarre dating life, her attention-seeking antics, and her rumored super-nasty attitude, you gotta admit something. Nicki Minaj is on top of the female rapper game right now.

At any rate, BET is well-aware of her status and has decided to give her fans a special treat. Viewers will be given access to the “Only” rapper’s Pinkprint tour, which reported to have generated $22 million dollars.
