Count the Fail

(h/t Cece Dixon)



The fail comes near the end. You'll know of what I speak.

24 comments:

  1. Was something said by the male commentator? I could not make it out but it seems Mr. Wu heard something and looked over at him.

    1. No; the female interviewer asked that bullshit.

    2. What is the big deal about Michelle wanting his help again? Don't they think that if she thought that Jason was bad she would have fired him .Man people are so crazy! His pieces seem to be working for the both of them.People seems to love what she wears and I'm quite sure he could care less about what the public thinks about him especially now that he's getting bigger and definitely is getting paid big time for his masterful creations .

    3. They're pissed because she keeps wearing clothes by designers of color. That's what it boils down to.

  2. How does he look 12 years old? What was that comment?

    1. For real. Said to a grown-ass, successful, 30-year-old businessman.

  3. I was watching the news this morning and they were saying how people were complaining that she used Jason Wu again, and i'm thinking, "So the F*ck what!" Michelle likes his style and she looked gorgeous, what's the problem!

    Damn and that comment...sucks teeth.

    1. Really? I heard about how good the dress looked and his website crashed from looky lou's trying to find it. I liked this dress better then the one from that last inauguration. AS for the comment from Gayle he doesn't look twelve, but he does look young. I think she could have worded it differently.

    2. He looks like he takes care of himself.

      And his haters can keep hating. His work is going down in history - twice. I believe that's what we call "checkmate."

  4. Besided the 12 yr old comment; it also upset me how she said, that his clothes are pricey, and that she got it on sale. For some reason, it read to me "I can't afford it" Even if that is not the point.

    We, as black woman already have to fight the stereotype that we have no class and are poor, please don't help it by saying you got it because he was coming to the show and on top of that you got it on sale. I felt it unnecessary.

      I also took it as a criticism. Like his clothes aren't worth the price.

      Um...if you're gonna try to wear the same clothes as the First Lady of the United States, you can't bitch about price.

    2. As stated below she is Oprah's best friend. Not that having a rich friend means that you are rich, but I'm sure she gets some kickbacks from being friends with her. You hear all the time how celebrities get free stuff from designers for the advertisement so I'm sure she gets free stuff also.

  5. I'm disappointed in Gayle here. She played him off or plays him cheap here, you can tell. Something tells me it's because he's asian. People LOVE playing asians off. Why tell a grown man that he looks 12? Gayle also cheapened herself with the whole "pricey" comment. ugh, FAIL INDEED!!

    1. I can't say its because he is Asian. I have to be honest most designers are pricey for normal people BUT she is the best friend of Oprah. Granted that doesn't mean she has money like Oprah, but I'm sure she can afford his creations at their normal price.

  6. Some (many?) TV hosts and journalists usually make me cringe with their snarky/stupid comments. Like they say whatever stupid thing that pops in their mind sometimes and they think that they're funny.

    I remember the Asian American designer who made Aretha Franklin's amazing hat for Obama's inauguration in 2009. So it's nothing new, when a designer is talented, he/she gets the recognition they deserved. Why making it into a sensation?

    1. There's a disdain for successful people of color in this country; it's a general side effect of living in the Age of Obama. However, anti-Asian sentiment is becoming particularly virulent lately as the West realizes its global influence is finite, whereas Asian influence is rapidly becoming anything but.

    2. Yeah, the West feels threatened...and is reacting in a childish way.

  7. Some of these people do not know how to give a good interview. Like a celebrity host who doesnt take time to learn the trade.

    Sigh.... I am young looking too. So I know that whole "age" thing well.

  8. Wow! See I just heard of Jason. But that was disappointing. I do not know what's up with people doing that!

  9. Big-up and shout-out to Jason Wu for getting to "dress" The First Lady again! I'm not "offended" at all by what Gale said because she's just telling the truth. For the average woman (black, white or otherwise) they can't afford a Jason Wu dress/gown (at full price) and Gale's comment about the price was just fact. She got her's on sale, which is how most women shop. I certainly shop on sale and would never spend more than my budget can handle. Would you send $3000 for a dress/gown, if you had the money or would you try to find a dress/gown similar in color and style that cost a lot less than $3Grand? Can't wait to check out Jason's Ms. Wu collection at Nordstrom's!

      True, but Jason Wu is dressing The First Lady. Average women aren't in her tax bracket, and can't really complain if they're going to try to dress like her.

      That's like working at Wendy's and getting mad at the prices of the private jet company which services Bill Gates.

  10. I'll just say what everyone is thinking...Gayle has this job because she's friends with Oprah. What are her qualifications for being an editor and news anchor? She studied psychology and sociology, not journalism.

  11. If Gayle studied psychology and sociology, then, she is too smart for this job. Journalism majors are not noted for their great political, social, and economic insights and systematic thinking.
