you're thinking about the midterms but i'm still thinking about the worm
and that's the difference between you and me
Listen I know we all know, but if you don’t KNOW? You should really know…you know?
This was Heidi Klum’s Halloween costume this year:
This costume choice is……….beyond inspired. This – for ME??? – is pure genius. This is the best thing I can possibly think of for a celebrity to do with their money and I am incredibly serious.
Yeah yeah yeah I know this news is over a week old but I have to speak my truth to power and my personal truth is that WORM IS EXCELLENT.
We all know that Miss Heidi delivers every Halloween but my god how will she ever top this!? Worm is beauty. Worm is grace. Worm is Miss United States. And Worm took two years to make!!
Do you think she knew about the meme? She must have known about the meme, right? I can just picture her calling her team and saying, “Hey…what about Worm?” What I would give to have been in the room where it happened…
Like, really though – who thought of this and how and why and where is their award? It is somehow both not a reference to anything at all while also being so of-the-moment that I can’t really wrap my head around it. The moment I saw Worm I thought, “Of course! It’s so obvious! WORM!” but also no science or mathematics could ever have predicted it.
This is some Rick Baker shit. I guess this was her first Halloween since the panini and girl, she really did the thing. And I know deep in my heart that she is covered in lube – I mean look at the way she’s glistening!
The je ne sais quoi of this worm… The way it is both high and low art…the horror and the camp and the humor…the grotesque and intricately hand-painted latex layers…the commentary on the rich…on the media…the stupidity of the commentary…the simple worminess of it all. It is meaningless and in that meaninglessness, it is so meaningful.
AND THEN THERE’S THIS????? I am shedding real tears. The long red acrylics…the sheer sequined bodysuit…the hair tousle…the worm face. I sincerely wish I was kidding but this is really my favorite piece of art.

You ever look at someone and you can’t tell if they are hot or just really tired?
This newsletter has moved in a more unhinged direction…not sure if I mentioned that already but I sure think it’s obvious! So do with that information what you will.
See ya next time xoxo
