(Who would spray paint their child’s hair even redder than it already is? Tars. And the blush? Tars. Handmade outfit? Tars. Professional photo shoot for Halloween? Tars. Thanks mom, you really went all out.)
I was looking at Katy Perry’s new ad for GHD hair products, when I started thinking about how trendy mermaids are. So many celebrities take inspiration from mermaids, and then battle with each other over who came up with the idea first. Let’s be real, folks. We have all fantasized about being Ariel, but if they were to cast someone now, it would DEFINITELY be me!
Katy Perry as mermaid in ad (and rumored to be mermaid in new music video):
Lady Gaga as mermaid, who’s convinced Katy Perry copied her look:
Bette Midler as mermaid in wheelchair, who heavily inspired Lady Gaga (or Gaga just plain ripped her off):
Rihanna as mermaid on Vogue cover, before Katy Perry or Gaga even thought of it:
Blake Lively as mermaid, ripped from Rhianna:
Madonna with mermen…(Gaga I have a feeling you saw this one too):
Paris Hilton as mermaid (she’s gross so she doesn’t count):
Cher in the movie Mermaids. Still love “The Shoop Shoop Song” from that soundtrack:
Darryl Hannah as mermaid in Splash, before Ariel was even created!
Attention ladies of the Fin Community, you are clearly all ripping each other off, making it very difficult for the public to decipher who is actually original. Let’s go with a new theme next time. Pirates anyone?
Practicing my “Part of Your World” moves…nailed it!
