Pop Project Explains: Met Gala 2019 Fashion

On Monday, May 6, the 71st annual Met Gala was a thing again. If you don’t know what that is then you need to get with the times. The Met Gala is a fundraising event for Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It also marks the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. This is the event that all the celebrities wear their best costumes. Because of this, I decided to put on my fashion blogger hat and chat about some of the costumes and my thoughts. This years theme was camp. So naturally, only gay men and women knew what the hell that means.

What the hell is camp?

Don’t feel bad if you don’t have any idea what camp is. You will soon find out that some people didn’t even know what it meant. Or they just don’t care. So here’s the wikipedia definition of Camp

Camp is an aesthetic style and sensibility that regards something as appealing because of its bad taste and ironic value. Camp aesthetics disrupt many of modernism’s notions of what art is and what can be classified as high art by inverting aesthetic attributes such as beauty, value, and taste through an invitation of a different kind of apprehension and consumption.

So now that we got that out of the way, let’s get into some of these fashions.

Nick and Priyanka Jonas

Oh, Where do I begin with this. I think it might be best to start off with this: Nick Jonas has proven that not everyone can look super hot all of the time. While I can appreciate their take on glitter, I don’t know what this is suppose to be. Priyanka looks like a glittery alien queen while Nick looks like a 1970s gay porn star with tendencies to like little children and lure them with candy into his van/cult. Please, Nick, for the love of Jonas, don’t ever get a mustache like that. The world and I thank you in advance.

Nick was wearing a white suit with Dior Men with glittery gray shoes that look like it was made from her dress. Apparently Dior Men’s suit are for cult leaders. Priyanka looks like she killed some poor creature that invaded her home planet and had it weaved into Dior Haute Couture. Sadly, this wasn’t the weirdest outfit from the night.

Katy Perry

Someone call Disney! One of the dancing chandeliers from “Beauty and the Beast” on Broadway escaped storage and ended up at the Met Gala. Oh, sorry that is just Katy Perry. Now I don’t know why someone would want to wear something that looks as uncomfortable as it probably feels. Especially with how many battery packs was needed to keep everything lit. But don’t worry, she didn’t this all night.

Katy Perry then decided to dress up as a hamburger. Yep, she went from a chandelier to a hamburger. From the lighting of a fancy dinner to something you can get from something off the dollar menu. While I appreciate their bold fashion choices, I really don’t understand them. I get fashion isn’t suppose to be comfortable but there’s no fashionable reason for anything she is wearing.

Katy’s hamburger outfit was made by McDonald’s. I hear that she wanted Wendy’s to make her outfit but they don’t make fake burgers.

Kim Kardashian and Kayne West

Only Kim Kardashian West would make looking almost completely naked a look for Met Gala. Kim told one of the media that she wanted to look like she was wearing a wet t-shirt. Unless you’re wearing a stripper’s shirts, I would like to know what shirt is that transparent to where it matches your skin color so well. It looks more like floppy skin than it is a wet t-shirt. She also looks like a sci-fi movie villain. A villain that is looking to steal peoples youth as she clings onto relevancy. She also kind of looks like a condom.

Kayne West is dressed like he is picked up his outfit off of the rack of Walmart. Apparently, Yeezey’s jacket was $40. Pretty much, Kayne is all of us if we couldn’t spend countless thousands of dollar on a fancy outlandish outfit. Kayne also looks like he’s going to murder someone and he’s carrying around the body, Kim, as a memento in the back of his van.

Celine Dion

Oh, Celine Dion. She’s the only person that can pull off looking like a peacock. I feel bad for the people that was sitting behind her. The tea of the entire outfit that Celine didn’t know what camp was. She thought they were talking about camping. I know have visions of Celine coming to the Met Gala as a tent or a boy scout. They would have probably been even better than looking like an extremely gay peacock trying to blind their lover with their sparkles.

The fact that Celine Dion has no idea what camp is makes everything seem even better. I can just picture her reactions to everything. The awe and the amazement to the world around her. Just a new born gay sparkly peacock just sitting there in amazement of a huge ass hamburger or a man holding onto his own head.

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen

It appears the Grim Reaper took a day off to take some of the celebrities careers at the Met Gala. Oh, I’m sorry that just Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Now I’m poking fun at the fact they look like death. But rather they decided to make their own theme where they are just wearing black leather dresses. One is wearing yellow. I’m honestly not sure which one is which at this point. But it’s very obvious that they might have a thing for leather. They do dress alike so maybe the camp is the fact they are dressed alike. I honestly don’t know. I just hope they didn’t take anyone’s careers. If they did, my money is on Kimye. It would cause the least amount of waves.

In my research in trying to figure who is who, I noticed a trend of them of wearing darker tones to the past Met Galas. Are they trying to hide something or just try to be dark and brooding? One tends to lighten it up a little but it’s still dark. I’m starting to wonder if they are vampires.

There was too many fashions to go over that occurred. Like Jared Leto holding his own head, Zendaya turning into Cinderella, or whatever the hell Cardi B was wearing. I highly recommend googling the outfits. It’s a joy. The same joy you got by reading this piece

Presidential Who’s who

election sm

It’s Election time! This year we will pick a brand new president because four years is enough of just one. And in order to help you, I thought I would break down each possible candidates and talk about the things that really matter and that’s not the issues.

Donald Trump- Yes, this is really happening if you didn’t know already. Voting for Donald Trump is voting for someone who openly supports bad hairstyles/hairdos Why would you let someone like that run the country? America has slightly high standard and other countries expect us to have the best hairstyles. Why in the world should we elect someone that supports sporting a comb over that isn’t fooling anyone? Besides, you can’t trust his hair because I heard it was full of secrets.

Hilary Clinton- She wears pants suits…no one should ever wear pantsuits unless they are named Leslie Knope. No one but her should be allowed to wear a pantsuit. They aren’t any sort of fashionable. Sure, they look official and fancy but they aren’t any that walk down the runway at any of the fashion shows. We need to be part of the high fashion and so should our leader.

Paris Hilton- She’s one of the many sleeper candidates that many people haven’t heard about. I’ve actually talked about her before. “Make America Hot Again” is her slogan and she’s here to turn the White House Pink. The only thing going against her is that she doesn’t know one of America’s top store-Walmart. Everyone knows Walmart and it’s a big part of America’s economy because it helped create jobs. Job creation is also an issue that her campaign has tackled but we aren’t here to talk about the issues.

Kim Kardashian and Kayne West- We might as well just give it to them to begin with because they are already leaders in the country. They are leaders in our media and are big deals. They know how to handle the public and both have wonderful PR teams that will help America’s relationship with other countries. The only problem with them is that the White House won’t be able to fit their egos.

Leslie Knope- She’s the best person out of the candidates. She’s been in government all of her life and did some big projects in her hometown of Pawnee, Indiana. She can pull out anything and she has a crack pot team with her! She’s just too much sometimes and I feel like that will hurt and help her.

That is my breakdown of the presidential candidates. I hope this will help you get to know your candidates better.

A Letter to Kim Kardashian West

KKW

Dear Kim Kardashian West,

Hello there! How are you today? I’m well. How’s North West? I hope she is well. So I’m writing this letter to you because we need to have a real talk because I know that you are going to read this letter because I know you start your day sitting by your phone/computer doing a Google search on your name and reading every last thing about you (I have my letter to TMZ and all media outlets ready when you send me my cease and desist letter for this letter).

You need to keep your clothes on. I just keep seeing your big naked ass and how it decided to break the internet. It’s really started to break my eyes. I get that you are trying to show off your body, and I’ll admit, it’s a bangin’ bod, but I don’t care to see it. Remember that sex tape that you made back when Ray J Hit it first? Oh yeah, you don’t because you wanted people to forget about it. Bitch, do you really think that taking naked photos of you will make people forget that you had a sex tape when you fuel searches like “Kim Kardashian Nude”? Hell to the naw. If this is your mom’s idea to sell some more “merch”, then you need to fire her (sorry, Kris) because that shiz isn’t going to be working like she think it is.

So please, for the love of Kayne, keep your clothes on bitch!

 

Love,

Steven Kaufman

 

Calabasas, we have a problem!

We have an epidemic worse than Bieber fever and maybe even Ebola. We, as Americans, are under a Kardashian Fever. That’s right…we are being taken over by everyone’s favorite train wreck, The Kardashians. Before I get on my soapbox, let’s clear one thing up. I’m not complaining about the Jenner’s. The Jenner’s are actually famous on their own accord. Kylie, Kendell, and Krissy (is their a Krissy?) are all models who didn’t want to get famous for being Kim Kardashian’s little step sisters. Brody got famous for banging Kristen and being on MTV. Bruce got her his fame not only running from his true self but also running for the gold. Then there is like 6 other Jenner kids and they aren’t famous.

So the Kardashians, what are they really famous for? They are famous because of Kim. Kim made a sex tape of her banging a nameless rapper that happened to be famous for being Brandy/Moesha’s brother (it was like inception). Then we wanted to know about the girl “behind” the sex tape and that’s how we were cursed with “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” So did we awarded her for having sex with fame and fortune or just rewarding her for having a vagina that makes people famous? (Look at the list of her past flames and tell me you knew of them before they dated) Then everyone else is just feeding off of her and the Jenner fame. Have you ever just sat and thought about why we are so fascinated with them? Well, that started a trend of people getting famous for doing absolutely nothing.

Alex From Target (I’m sorry but the kid was just doing his job and he has a billion people hitting on him), that one guy that told us to hide our kids and hide our wife because their raping everyone out there, and Kate Gosselin (While popping our eight kids out is a feet, she doesn’t need to famous for it). I’ll go into the Teen Moms and such in a different article but why do we does our society feel like rewarding people for things like popping out babies and doing their job?

While I use this blog to talk about people who have talent and Justin Bieber, I think we need to stop and look at the celebrities we are creating and actually think about why we care as much as we do. Together we can end Kardashian Fever.
