Chloe and Halle Bailey were so cute and supportive of each other at the VMAs

2021 MTV Video Music Awards
My favorite interview during the VMAs preshow last night was sisters Chloe and Halle Bailey. Chloe has a solo career now and Halle is starring in the new live action Little Mermaid movie, out next year. They just seemed so proud and supportive of each other. Halle introduced Chloe’s performance of “Have Mercy,” which was incredible. Chloe can MOVE. We’ll be seeing a lot more of both of them. Chloe is wearing Marni. This looks like tin foil to me and I’m confused by the framed spoon necklace but she was happy in it. Plus it’s on brand for MTV! This is a moon man dress.

Halle was looking amazing in a white cutout Monot gown. She said it was comfortable too. Just wow.

Kacey Musgraves was in Valentino Fall 2021. I should have put this dress with Doja Cat’s post because the color mixing was similar to Doja’s look. It’s a little weird with the hat, but I love Kacey and this is the VMAs. Kacey performed “star crossed,” a deep and moving song about her divorce. Now I want to listen to her new album.

Billy Porter was in this metallic gold Christian Siriano suit that many outlets pointed out looked like the iconic MTV moon person. I can’t remember whom he introduced last night but he talked about his Black boy joy not being dimmed and I appreciated that. Porter always brings the fashion drama and I can’t wait to see what he wears tonight!

    I think Billy Porter introduced Lil Nas X?

  2. Laalaa says:

    Ok, I remember watching Siriano in Project Runway and just knowing he is someone extraordinary but to see his development is such a thrill. LOVE the suit! So much fashion, but WEARABLE and CONNECTED to the person wearing it. True artist

  3. Lemons says:

    The Bailey sisters are talented, but these were both fashion misses for me.
    And while I want to say everyone can exist and there’s a place for everyone…Can I just say, I’m tired of seeing another woman writhing around on the stage in little to nothing and twerking, even if there’s good choreography? I’ve seen it before. It’s just been done so many times and I’ll be happy when we see the next “phase” of musical performance.

    • Tanya Nguyen says:

      I’m with you. It’s sad to see each young girl think writhing around is a mandatory part of her music career growth.

    • Celebitchy says:

      It’s hot and I will watch as much of that as artists want to do. Doing that is HARD. Yes it’s popular now, but we can appreciate it too. We have room for as many artists who will want to do those moves and Chloe does them quite well.

      • Jensies says:

        I’m with you, CB. Her video was MAJOR and she and her sis are so talented, it’s cool to see them thrive in their different ways.

      • BlueSky says:

        Yeah it’s interesting that you all yell and scream when Texas is telling women what they can and can’t do with their bodies but then you want to turn around and lecture these women about their sexuality and how they express themselves? Just because it’s not your cup of tea doesn’t give you the right to lecture these young women with your respectability politics. These women have to deal with sexism, racism, and then you all policing their bodies and how they express themselves. I wish I was that free and comfortable with my body when I was their age. They are growing up in the public eye. Could you deal with that kind of scrutiny publicly? I doubt it.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        @Bluesky: Amen.

    • ME says:

      I’m with you. At the end of her performance she licked the mic like it was a d*ck. WHY? She’s so talented and beautiful. Don’t cheapen yourselves ladies.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        She is not cheapening herself because a woman’s worth does not lie in her modesty/purity. A woman who dresses and dances Like A Ladeee1 is not of higher value than women who don’t care to adhere to those kinds of restrictions all or most of the time.

      I’m with you. People have been blinded by Cosmo Feminism fr lmao

      For Harriet has a video on this called “WAP and the Spectacle of Sexual Liberation”. Y’all should watch before you talk nonsense. Get this Pop Culture Feminism/Feminism Lite nonsense outta here.

      I’m all for women owning their sexuality, but this ain’t it and y’all know it. This ain’t empowerment. This is exploitation of black women’s bodies.

      Janelle Monae spoke about how it was harder for her to take off as a star because she refused to hypersexualize herself. This is foul.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        It has nothing to do with Cosmo, actually. The credit the femmephobic and sex negative give to that publication would be funny if it weren’t so insulting. As if we needed a damn magazine to teach us that something’s wrong with the way respectability has been defined for women, and the ways it’s ok to threaten and hurt women when they don’t meet that standard. As if we needed an at times entertaining, but ultimately silly $4 glossy to teach us that those definitions and punishments have not helped ANY race of women. Maybe you’re too blinded by religion or conservative-sanctioned beliefs to see that? I wonder what magazine you think manipulated gay men into thinking hate speech/being used as a put-down was harmful to them? What cartoon brainwashed Simu Liu and Colin Kaepernik that racism is disrespectful?
        Janelle Monae told the truth about her experience. What she did not do, was go around demanding that everyone mirror her boundaries and comfort zone because of her experience, or go on a crusade about how any woman who did the opposite of her was being exploited. Exploitation is a real thing, not a moment of disliking the dance moves and necklines on someone else. And as for feminism lite? There’s nothing light about the abuse girls and women have endured and witnessed over people being upset over a lack of female modesty. The fact that society has decided that that suffering is less important than what non-cishet males have been through with religion doesn’t make it right to dismiss that as light. BTW, nobody called it a feminist act. Nobody even called it empowering either- although, if Chloe says it is for her, what she has to say about it trumps what you have to say about it. We took issue with her being framed as sad and lowering herself in value.

    I love Kacey but that outfit is truly horrific.

  5. Bebe says:

    I think literally everyone looked very trashy on this event. I’m not offended by the skin shown, especially not as an avid beach nudist (yes, in specially designed beaches) myself. So many great bodies, and such terrible/trashy styling. Disappointing.

  6. Notafan says:

    I loved her singing but not a fan of Chloe’s dancing. I thought she was fine, but kind of lackluster. I have no problem with her sexualness, it looked like she was feeling herself up there. I just think of a different singer/dancer had done it, the choreography would have been electric. Chloe’s energy was kind of meh.

  7. Kaykay says:

    2023 can’t come sooner.
    The little mermaid is my favourite Disney movie and I can’t wait to see the live action version.

    As a black woman and a feminist, I couldn’t stomach Chloe’s performance. I’m tired of black women always having to perform hypersexual male gazey sh*t. And before you come with that “it’s her body/choice” nonsense lol no it’s not. Her team is full of men telling her what to do, what to say, how to act. Lil Kim and Aaliyah were singing songs (written by men) about f*cking when they were still minors.

    Black women have been telling our stories about being exploited by the music industry for the male gaze and y’all don’t listen to us.

    Janelle Monae spoke about how it was harder for her to take off as a star because she refused to hypersexualize herself. This is foul.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Spectacle is always going to be a part of the liberation in a homophobic, misogynistic, victim-blaming world. We’re here to stay. A whole group of people trying to keep it subtle and private to be taken seriously is not liberation. It’s ok for some people to be less out there with it, but that can’t be the requirement for everybody.
      And white people may not see or know how to handle what you’re doing, but to some of the rest of us this is all too familiar. Asian and Muslim communities have their fair share of older women (and men) who try to define the boundaries of younger women in the community and make it a racial/cultural ‘protection’ issue so they can’t be criticized. Who will talk over our rejection of their ‘virtues and values’ as if shared marginalized status gives you that authority. Over it.
