2018 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Normally, I start this post as soon as the awards show ends, but I knew that this year was going to take a little bit longer. In fact, I cleared the entire rest of my night to write this post because I wanted to take extra care of it. I also didn’t want to fuck this up. Before we get into what everyone wore, I want to say how difficult it is to write this post. Everyone. EVERYONE was extremely beautiful and elegant and this year, it wasn’t about the gowns at all because the color black symbolized something more. It was a movement of women who stood together supporting each other against sexual harassment, sexual assault, gender inequality, unequal pay for women, and so much more. Why is this list even as long as it is? It’s frustrating, isn’t it? We’re also not focusing on significant others and dates to the awards show because this year many actresses chose to bring along with them activists and strong women in this world who are leading these efforts everywhere.

This time around, we’re going to do things a little bit differently. What will stay the same – the photos and the designer. But I’m keeping my critiques to myself because I just don’t think that on a night like this and an award show as amazing as this one was this evening, that we need any more criticism towards women and how they are dressed. And maybe we’ll choose to continue to do it this way from now on.

What I’m really excited to focus on in this post is how these stylists and actresses rose up to the challenge of wearing these black gowns and making it their own. They added pops of color, accessorized, and emphasized their hair and makeup instead of letting the gowns speak entirely for them. Except in a way, they did – powerfully. It will be hard to select my favorites, which I’ll share on my Instagram Stories later on this evening.

And while this evening was moving and inspiring, it’s a reminder to me that there’s still a lot of work to do. That there are men in that audience that are not supporters and instead abusers that have not been called out yet. That while we shifted the focus on the red carpet to not ask about who they were wearing, reporters were not asking enough men about what they were going to do to support the #TimesUp movement or how they felt about it. Very few wore anything, but black on the red carpet, but is this the same “fall-in-line” culture just repeating itself again? Also, wearing a uniform black dress doesn’t solve the problem(s). In high school, these sort of things were just called spirit days. (sorry was that harsh)

There’s a lot to unpack probably in the coming months, but we don’t gotta do that tonight…

Mariah’s 2017

By now, you may have heard that Mariah Carey flopped last night during her New Year’s Eve Performance. If you haven’t heard it, you can watch the video above for all you need to know, but do it now before it gets taken down or something. What I want to know though is… what person believed that Mariah Carey was ACTUALLY going to sing during this performance? It’s 2017 and I can’t remember the last time Mariah actually sang at a performance, but at least she’s owning it like the bad B that she is.

Performance of the Day

I’ve probably been watching all of Mariah Carey’s performances of Vision of Love/Infinity all week. This is the 3rd time at least! And it is still so so good. It’s a pretty good girl anthem by the way (if you’ve been looking!) We haven’t plugged any for awhile until now.

Song of the Day

Mariah Carey – Infinity

Tonight’s performance of Mariah Carey’s “Infinity” from the Billboard Music Awards took me wayyyyyy back!

Taylor Swift – Shake It Off

I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to make this the Song of the Day, but as I listen to the song a second time and then a third time, I realized how much it was growing on me. I wanted to keep this simple though so here are just my thoughts on this:

  • Continue embracing your white girl dancing self, Taylor!
  • The songs in which she decides to talk instead of sing. Why doesn’t anyone give her feedback to not do that?
  • It’s true, being a country singer is kind of like the gateway to stardom. Look at how far from country she is now!
  • I hope the rumors are true and that she actually is dating Karlie Kloss.

So wait, which song is better – Taylor’s or Mariah’s?

Mariah Carey Butchers #Beautiful Performance on GMA

photo cred | E!

Yesterday, when Mariah Carey and Miguel performed their new hit single #Beautiful on Good Morning America, the audience was greeted to a not-so-sweet ad-lib from the diva. It appeared as if she was singing over the track at all the wrong times even. It was confusing. Since the performance was not up to par – Good Morning America decided to make corrections to it so that by the time it aired on the West Coast, that mistake was erased. Check out the East Coast vs West Coast version here.
