POP BITS. Who’d have thought it? Those shy, retiring wallflowers Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus doing something that the whole darn internet will keep discussing for weeks? This time, it involved a next-level cat GIF and a giant pantomime horse. Tell me more, we hear you cry!
At the American Music Awards on Sunday, things took a turn for the weird when the Gaga rocked up a giant, white model horse operated by two normal-sized puppeteers. To be fair, this sort of thing is all in the course of a day in Gaga’s gaga life, but we couldn’t help wondering if she’d had a little diary mix-up and actually thought she was off to audition for Hollywood’s Christmas panto. Note to Hollywood – if you don’t currently put on a celeb Christmas panto, you TOTALLY should.
The show-stopping stunts didn’t stop there, though – when tongue-waggler supreme Miley took to the stage, she was accompanied by a giant kitten on a screen behind her, that appeared to mime the words to her hit ‘Wrecking Ball’ and started crying big virtual tears at the emosh bit in the middle. Of course it did.
Other highlights included One Direction’s matching outfits (did Zayn chop a sleeve off Liam’s shirt to make that matching pocket square?) Rihanna receiving an award from her mum and Kendall Jenner, Taylor Swift and co looking really fit. POP BITS OUT.
