You know, it’s odd to me that two of the stars of The Devil Wears Prada doing a highly produced Lip Sync for Your Life isn’t a thing that has already aired on Logo, but I digress.
Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway were on Lip Sync Battle last night. Emily Blunt performed Janis Joplin’s “Piece of My Heart”, Anne Hathaway performed Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball”, and judging by these performances, we don’t have to watch anymore, because this show has already peaked at maximum camp. Seriously, unless they get Nicole Kidman does ping pong trick while lip syncing to Mika’s “Grace Kelly” (it’d be a promotional tie-in to her Lifetime debut), we can stick a fork in this juicy glitterball, ‘cos she’s done. This being a battle, though, my question is: who won?
On one hand, Emily Blunt’s performance included Emily Blunt, a fur coat, and Emily Blunt in a fur coat. These are three things I covet in equal measure, and that measure is a lot. On the other hand, Anne Hathaway’s performance included androgynous sexuality, a bedazzled sledgehammer, Anne Hathaway’s Theater Kid Emoting, red lipstick, and ATTITUDE. These are several other things I covet in equal measure, and that measure is so much I feel faint from pleasure. Emily Blunt was serving trumped up karaoke next to Anne Hathaway’s high-camp homage to the “Wrecking Ball” music video, but neither of them did a drop split, and I’d love to be brunch buddies with them both, so it’s a tie!
