Victoria's Secret models lip-syncing Katy Perry's 'Firework' seem slightly wrong to anyone else?
To promote tonight’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (CBS, 10 p.m. ET), the world’s most beautiful models filmed a video lip-synching musical guest Katy Perry’s “Firework.” Watch it below. That seem wrong to anyone else? Maybe it’s because Perry’s video for the song shows kids with real problems — parents who verbally and physically abuse one another, issues with their bodies and sexuality, cancer, etc. — and the models’ main problem appears to be how wide to open their mouths to make the lip-syncing convincing. (That one blonde fails.) I know, I know, everyone has their problems, it’s just tough to see these women embody the underdog. (Though I have no problem imagining them making us go, “Oh, oh, oh.” Perhaps they’re what we’re supposed to aspire to.)
So while I try to disassociate “Firework” with its video (the beat does make it a killer runway song), are you ready to watch the Victoria’s Secret models strut their stuff (in a $2 million Bombshell Fantasy Bra if they’re Adriana Lima)? In addition to Katy Perry, Akon will perform. CSI: Miami‘s Adam Rodriguez will also take part in the evening as “Vic, the hip owner of Club Victoria, the hottest nightclub in town where the show is taking place.” Do you think they paid him for that gig, or did he volunteer?
