Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa took to the stage to recreate a moment from pop culture history…
Both singers arrived at the microphone wearing the same black Versace wrap dress and chunky gold jewelry. Megan said,
Not you stealing my look….
Dua Lipa replied,
I was told I had the exclusive.”
I’m going to have to have a talk with Donatella.”
Right one cue Versace herself appeared muttering in Italian, removing the detachable skirt from both artists.
You know what? Let’s do this.
Now these are my girls…
Thank you Donatella! Now we both look like winners.”
At 1998 Video Music Awards, musical legends Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston had the same sort of faux-run-in.
After years of the press directly comparing their careers, Houston said 1990 interview when she was asked about Carey,
What do I think of her? I don’t think of her.”
As they presented the award 8 years later for Best Male Video together, and played up to their rep as feuding divas by wearing the same brown Vera Wang gown.
Carey said to Houston on stage.
Nice dress. That’s a one-of-a-kind, yeah? Looks pretty familiar.”
A quarter century later, the gag is reborn.
