Miley Cyrus Can Haz Laser Cats Crying Diamonds

No, we didn’t watch the “everybody phone it in“ American Music Awards last night. Who do you think we are?

Luckily, we are aware that the show was shockingly scandal-free and we do have some super obvious takeaways!

Lady Gaga and R. Kelly: interesting, but this was a “tribute” to JFK like Gawker‘s “15 Women JFK F*cked” was a tribute. Predictably, appropriately tasteless.

Taylor Swift: still not country. Who votes on these things—and did they hear the same songs we did?

Kohl’s Goes ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ with J.Lo SoMo Campaign

Who’s Jennifer Lopez, again? Oh right: she starred in a pretty good movie with George Clooney, got sunscreened by Ben Affleck and performed for some dictator. Anyway…

Kohl’s is betting a lot of money that people remember her with an ambitious campaign airing this Sunday that combines traditional ads with social engagement as so many do these days.

The interesting thing about this one is its “you choose the story” premise: J.Lo is headed to the American Music Awards and she needs your help getting to the stage because traffic is bad and she’d never take a Citibike (New York joke, whoop). If you want her to run across the tops of all the cars Batman-style then you tweet #JLoRoofRun, and if you want her to jump on the back of some random dude’s moped you tweet #JLoHitch.

Still with us?

J.Lo Feeling the Sting of a Horrendous AMA Performance

How many ways was Jennifer Lopez’s performance on last night’s American Music Awards a crazy hot mess?

First, she’s a spokesperson for Fiat and and had one of the little buggies on stage with her during her performance. Questlove from The Roots and John Legend ripped her for that on Twitter. The Los Angeles Times called it “cringe-inducing” and The Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog called the performance “a car ad.” Celebrity endorsements have to be strategic and this was just blatant and tacky.

Speaking of tacky, then she stripped down to a wannabe Britney Spears sparkle bodysuit. So derivative and unnecessary. Robin Givhan shreds the costume on The Daily Beast.
