In the effort to get back to blogging after a fortnight of ennui, I was preparing a post on Lady Gaga at the MTV VMAs (you can tell that is the fruit of the laziest research ever, since her meat dress is Everywhere Marinated in Over-exposure). Fortunately, I realized my foolishness in time. I searched the rest of the VMAs for Pretty inspiration - before realizing that there is almost never anything pretty at the VMAs (with the exception of Sofia Vergara).
So before moving on, three things:
1) I found Lady Gaga's matambre meat dress stunt funny but only in the aftermath, because this is the first and probably only time ever PETA and I will agree. But on the, "Ew" factor, not the "So let us take this opportunity to place whatever animal we are talking about upon its rightful alter of worship and sacrifice human babies in Thanks- oh, are we not saying that out loud yet? Nothing!"
2) It's symbolic: "And I am not just a piece of meat." Seriously, yo.
P.P.S. I did not put up any pictures! OK, I was going to post a picture of the meat shoes, but really, does anyone even want to see a picture of raw meat touching both the floor and a person's shoes? Seriously, gross. Not on my blog. So here instead, is Will.I.Am's Hair-Hat-Sculpture thingy which I found weirdly awesome in an early 90s way, like if Sonic the Hedgehog married a My Little Pony.
* Also and more importantly, it's tiresome. For everyone. The ability to be shocked wears out faster than cheap tire treads under a constant and vapid barrage.
