The Victoria’s Secret Angels Lip-Syncing To ‘Shake It Off’ Makes Them Seem Almost Human
I don't want to make this all about me, but this is a really tough time of year for my insecurities. For one thing it's the holiday season, which means there isn't a cookie in the world safe from my clutches, but it's also that time of year when the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs and I have to see their decidedly non-cookie-consuming bodies walking the runway. Honestly, there is no low lower than looking down at your hands and seeing what you're eating while you're watching that. I guarantee it.
Which is why I'm so excited this year that we've been given a little gift, to humanize these blessed creatures a bit. And it's some of the Victoria's Secret Angels (do I capitalize that?? they seem important enough that I should) lip-syncing to the song ‘Shake It Off'. I may not be able to walk a runway in lingerie without actively vomiting down my front, but I like to dance around and lip-sync to Taylor Swift, so at least we have one thing in common!
The video was taken at the rehearsal for the main show — so before Ariana Grande had revealed to Ed Sheeran that she ‘loves big black balls‘, and stars all manner of Earth Angels like Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, Doutzen Kroes, Karlie Kloss, and Lily Aldridge. You know, just the most beautous ladies in the whole entire world. Truthfully, I am GFAA — gay for Alessandra Ambrosio — and always have been.
But even if Alessandra isn't your cup of tea AS IF THAT'S POSSIBLE, there are plenty of other women in that group who owe us a quick reminder that they are in fact human beings and not exotic lady swans who can flap their wings and literally take flight into the heavens. Aka this super fun video is just what the doctor ordered.
