Some things never change, like Britney Spears’ ridiculous fashion sense. What seemed like a terrible idea 13 years ago — matching all-denim ensembles — is still a terrible idea, as Katy Perry proved at the VMAs, teaming up with rapper Riff Raff to don a dress and suit made from poor, mistreated blue jeans in homage to Spears and then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake’s infamous red carpet look from the American Music Awards in 2001.
So what did Spears think of the tribute? You might be shocked to learn that she’s totally into it. “Just when I thought the denim dress had retired….you bring it back! You looked amazing,” Spears tweeted at Perry. But wait, wasn’t it supposed to be funny? This was a serious thing?
