Today, news has broken that VH1 — my Mommy and Daddy company — is bringing back one of the highlights of our lives, the VH1 Divas series. The latest version of VH1 Divas will air live from the Brooklyn Academy of Musicâ€™s Howard Gilman Opera House, on September 17 — meaning I’ve got nearly 5 months to hand-bedazzle my best corset gown. Til that happens, let us partake in the digital bedazzling of some of the past VH1 Divas, including, but not limited to (Ace Ventura Soccer-Style-Kicker Deep Breath):
Celine Dion, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey, Shania Twain, Tina Turner, Elton John (mmhmm), Cher, LeAnn Rimes, Brandy, Faith Hill, Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, Chaka Khan, Donna Summer, Destiny’s Child, RuPaul, Diana Ross, The Backstreet Boys, Nelly Furtado, Stevie Wonder, Cyndi Lauper, Dixie Chicks, Shakira, Stevie Nicks, BeyoncÃ©, Lisa Marie Presley, Pat Benatar, Patti LaBelle, and Gladys Knight.
So, to celebrate what will surely be a momentous evening of dress tape (please, Aretha, for the love of God), today’s Blingee Wednesday is dedicated to the Divas. We ask that you limit yourselves to photos taken directly from past VH1 Diva concerts (however, will make exceptions for particularly genius Blingees found independently.) The rules: Ahead, we’ve posted a bunch of photos from past VH1 Diva Shows. Pick your favorite, head over to Blingee.com, MAKE IT FABULOUS, and the post a link to your creation in the comments. On Friday, we’ll post our faves.
