The biggest celebrities in the most elaborate formal wear. Here’s quite the gallery featuring KimYe, The Carters, Common, John Legend & Chrissy Teigen, Rihanna, Cassie & Diddy, FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson, Dwyane Wade & Gabrielle Union, Justin Bieber, Solange, and oh yeah J. Lo. Based on the Twitter volume I perused, Beyonce seems to be the big winner and I agree, she definitely killed. Also that Wizard of Oz meme on Rihanna’s dress. So it’s a draw.
Also, lowkey this is perfect.
The Met Gala is one of those events that I don’t really understand that I also refuse to Google to learn more about
I was waiting for video of this and boy, am I not disappointed.
The Lip Sync Battle between Common and John Legend took place last night and seemingly everyone was tweeting about it while I was watching some Warriors-Suns. Beside the point, Common and Legend went ALL OUT.
Dances, costumes, grills, just about everything you can think of for the friendly battle.
First, here’s Common “I Want You Back” vs. John Legend “Slow Motion”. What song choices.
Here’s Common break dancing as Lionel Richie for the next battle… forreal, wow. That’s growing up in Chi-City for ya.
Then Legend channeled some MC Hammer “Running Man” and had help from his wife Chrissy Teigen. This is pitted against Common’s “All Night Long” by Lionel Richie. I didn’t think a full on Lip Sync Battle (on Spike TV btw) could work as a show but at least with the “Glory” duo, it did. Watch above and below ICYMI.
I was waiting for Jimmy Kimmel Live’s new #MashupMonday series to involve a rapper and this was about as great and unforeseen choice and combo that I could have imagined.
Kimmel teamed up Warren G with saxophonist Kenny G for a rendition of “Regulate”. This means that Kenny G dazzles with his soprano sax over Nate Dogg’s smooth hook. The smoothness of the song in general, performed well by Warren G too, is very adaptable for the sax and I was honestly grooving in my seat watching this. The awesomeness of this needs no more words… so just watch above.
Kimmel was on fire the whole night actually as Kobe Bryant was a guest and his reaction to the viral Lakers post-game interview the other night after beating the Celtics was absolutely absolutely priceless. (that’s right, 2 absolutely’s.)
And actually, the whole show is pretty much going up here. Chrissy Teigen was the other guest and she has a magic trick. Then, Guillermo at the Oscars was probably the best red carpet interviews I’ve ever seen, ha!
Every week there’s a new photoshoot that shuts it down for the rest and on Monday, we already have the winner. It’s John Legend & Chrissy Teigen for GQ as their cameras capture the fashionable power couple in some, albeit contrived, couple-y moments. No matter, they look fly, they look in love, and now every guy is even more jealous of John Legend… Chrissy sizzles and leaves little to the imagination (NSFW as you press right on the gallery above.)
