A CASUAL AFFAIR BY TIFFANY L. RILEY

On Sunday January 26, 2014 we had the 56th annual Grammy Awards Show.  The Grammys, like always, were spectacular!  There were wonderful over the top music performances, well-dressed celebrities, and some……well let’s just say there was one in  particular who should not have gone at all!

AND THE AWARD FOR WORST-DRESSED CELEBRITY AT THE GRAMMYS GOES TO……DRUMROLL PLEASE………

pharrell w

PHARRELL WILLIAMS!!!! 

WHAT IN THE HELL????!!!!

LADIES AND GENTLEMAN………I AM TRULY SHOCKED AND SPEECHLESS!  THIS MAN WENT TO THE GRAMMYS, AN AWARD SHOW WHERE MUSICIANS/ARTISTS RECEIVE THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS HONOR THAT YOU CAN EARN IN MUSIC, DRESSED LIKE THIS!!!!  JUST LOOK AT THIS DAMN OUTFIT!!

P&H

You see Pharrell here pictured with his wife Helen.  First of all, let me direct your attention to his boots.   PHARRELL DIDN’T EVEN FINISH LACING UP HIS BOOTS!  AND I’M WILLING TO BET HE WASN’T WEARING ANY SOCKS IN THOSE DIRTY FADED BOOTS!

Now on to his jeans…PHARRELL KNOW DAMN WELL HE DIDN’T IRON THOSE JEANS.  HELL, HE’S PROBABLY BEEN WEARING THEM ALL WEEK LONG!!!!

Let’s look at him from the waist up.  He has on a plain white t-shirt.  But that red jacket…….PHARRELL YOU KNOW YOU ARE WEARING HELEN’S JACKET!!!!  DO YOU SEE WHERE HIS WAISTLINE IS?  HIS PANTS ARE NOT SAGGING.  EITHER YOU WORE YOUR WIFE’S JACKET TO THE GRAMMYS OR YOU JUST GOT A JACKET THAT WAS TOO SMALL!  AND WHAT’S WITH THE HAT????  YO PHARRELL…..ARBY’S WANTS THEIR HAT BACK (AND THEY DID ACTUALLY PAY HIM TO GET THAT HAT, GOOGLE IT)!!!!  IF YOUR INTENTION WAS TO GET IN THE SPOTLIGHT BY WEARING THIS TACKY OUTFIT TO THE GRAMMYS, YOU CERTAINLY ACCOMPLISHED YOUR GOAL!

At some point during The Grammys he changed his outfit.  I guess he was probably overhearing people talk about his “Grammy Look”.

Look #2…

Pharrell-Williams-2nd outfit

Because I am fabulous?  Pharrell you need to STOP it!  Now look at this picture; there were only three things he did different with this outfit.  He put on a thin sweater, three necklaces, and a coat with a fur collar!  BUT HE’S STILL WEARING THEM DIRTY FADED BOOTS, THOSE WRINKLED JEANS, AND THAT HAT!!!!  HEY PHARRELL…..SMOKEY THE BEAR IS LOOKING FOR HIS HAT!!!!

Despite the way he was dressed, Pharrell managed to win three Grammy awards: “Producer Of The Year”, “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance”  with DAFT PUNK and Nile Rodgers, and “Record Of The Year” for the song “Get Lucky” with DAFT PUNK and Nile Rodgers

After seeing the way he was dressed at The Grammys, I’m sure everyone is asking this question…..Is it ever okay to attend a formal event dressed in casual wear?  In my opinion, ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!  Like I said before…IT’S THE GRAMMYS, AN EVENT THAT ONLY COMES ONE TIME A YEAR!  When you receive a nomination for such a high honor and get invited to such a formal event, you are supposed to be DRESSED from head to toe!

He had another formal event in March.  PHARRELL was nominated for an Oscar for Best Song in a motion picture “HAPPY”.  I said if he arrived there dressed the same as he was for The Grammys, they won’t even let him in through the front door….…

   *PHARRELL’S STYLE AT THE 2014 OSCARS!!!!!!!*

Pharrell attended the 86th annual Academy Awards on Sunday March 2, 2014.  Now I was thinking to myself, Pharrell learned his lesson from the 2014 Grammy Awards.  I was very excited and anxiously awaited his red carpet arrival. Pharrell finally came out with his wife Helen to gracefully walk the red carpet looking like this………..

THAT’S A DAMN SHAME, SMH (SHAKING MY HEAD)

Now some of you are looking at this picture saying “What’s wrong with the outfit?”  The question of the day should be “WHAT’S RIGHT WITH IT?  Listen y’all, from the waist up Pharrell looked wonderful….that’s right from the WAIST UP!  Direct your attention to his legs…….YO PHARRELL….NOBODY WANTS TO SEE YOUR “BATTLE WOUNDS”!  There are a lot of people that have skin imperfections, so with that being said, PHARRELL….AIRBRUSH YOUR LEGS!  To me, he should have worn pants instead of shorts.  Why wear shorts if you’re not going to have any socks on?!

Pharrell got the chance to perform his Oscar nominated song “HAPPY”   The performance was great but the outfit he wore fell short once again!    I CAN NOT BELIEVE HE WORE THIS FOR HIS PERFORMANCE!!!!!

pharrell-oscar-performance outfil

 

WHY PHARRELL WHY!!!!!!!

I know y’all……HIS OUTIFT IS SIMILAR TO WHAT HE WORE TO THE GRAMMYS!  What is the deal with that damn HAT!!  Pharrell obviously changed the color of his hat and jacket but added something new to this ridiculous outfit.  He decided to upgrade from boots to RED GLITTER SNEAKERS.   REALLY PHARRELL?!  Why are you wearing your wife’s clothes?!  I was trying to focus on your performance but at times I was blinded by the shoes!

Ultimately Pharrell did not take home an Oscar for best song.  Maybe there should be a special award given to him for these terrible outfits.  Pharrell, you are definitely an ATTENTION SEEKER!!!  However the outfits have got to go!!!!!  I will be keeping PHARRELL under close surveillance.

THE GRAMMY HEIST BY TIFFANY L. RILEY

The 2014 Grammy Awards were a spectacular event!  There were some best dressed celebrities and over the top musical performances, but there was a major shock in one particular category that most likely left eyebrows raised all night long……

AND THE AWARD FOR BEST RAP ALBUM GOES TO…

 macklemore and ryan lewis

     MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS FOR “THE HEIST”!!!!!

WHAT!!!!!!……ARE YOU SERIOUS???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

         There were a lot of major hip hop artists nominated in the same category.  The other nominees were Drake for  “Nothing Was The Same”,  Jay Z for Magna Carter Holy Grail”, Kanye West for “Yeezus”, and Kendrick Lamar for  “Good Kid, M.A.A.D City”Kendrick Lamar was favored to win the Best Rap Album category.

So I’m sure you all are wondering……HOW DID THEY DO IT?!!!!!  HOW DID THEY PULL OFF……… THE GRAMMY HEIST?!!!!”

          Well let me give you a brief history on this dynamic duo.…… Hip Hop artist Macklemore and producer Ryan Lewis are from Seattle, Washington.  The two first met in 2006.  At the time, Ryan Lewis was working for Macklemore as a photographer.  Ryan would eventually become the producer of the duo.  Their debut album The Heist” was released on October 9, 2012 and came in at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart.

            Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ single “Thrift Shop” shot to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2013.  Now this right here was MAJOR because it was the first time since 1994 that a song became #1 on the Hot 100 without having a major record label backing them up…

YES THEY DID THIS INDEPENDENTLY!!!!!!!

          The dynamic duo released their second single Can’t Hold Us.  It also reached number 1 on the Hot 100 chart.  They then became the first duo to have two back to back singles on the Hot 100 chart.  Looks like Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have been making some moves.  Now let me give some background on the Hip Hop artist that was favored to win the Grammy for Best Rap Album ………..

         KENDRICK LAMAR

Kendrick 1

                                   

Kendrick Lamar is from Compton, California.  He got signed to Aftermath/Interscope records in 2012.  He released his debut album “Good Kid M.A.A.D City on October 22, 2012.  His first single, “Swimming Pools (Drank)”, #17 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.  

Kendrick released two more popular singles, “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” and “Poetic Justice”MTV named him the #1 Hottest MC in The Game and in November 2013, GQ magazine named him Rapper of The Year.  

                                                                                                                                             Ryan Lewis, MacklemoreKendrick 2                     

Macklemore/Ryan Lewis and Kendrick Lamar both received seven Grammy nominations, including Best Rap Album.  At the end of the night Macklemore and Ryan Lewis won a total of four Grammys, and Kendrick did not winany.   A lot of Kendrick Lamar’s fans were upset that he did not win any Grammys for his debut album.

Apparently Macklemore felt like he didn’t deserve the Best Rap Album Grammy.  He took to Instagram and sent Kendrick a text telling him that he was robbed of the award…

MACKLEMORE TEXT

            Kendrick Lamar responded back by saying Macklemore deserved to win and that he hustled and grinded real hard.  Kendrick also said that Macklemore’s strong work ethic, not race, was the reason he won Best Rap Album.    So, then…..WHAT WERE THE KEY ELEMENTS TO MACKLEMORE WINNING BEST RAP ALBUM? 

            Well Kendrick Lamar’s album did become certified platinum (selling over a 1,000,000 copies); however he did not have any #1 singles on the Hot 100 chart like Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.  Macklemore and Ryan Lewis had more commercial success than Kendrick Lamar; to have two #1 singles on the pop charts and get lots of airplay on pop radio is a BIG DEAL!!

            So I guess Macklemore would have the edge over Kendrick Lamar in this case.  BUT…there were other top selling artists, as I mentioned earlier, in the same category that had a lot of commercial success with their albums!! 

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, I have to say you pulled off the ultimate

GRAMMY HEIST!!!!!
