I was scrolling through the photos of the glitterati at last night’s Met Gala, otherwise known as the Anna Wintour Takes Over the World Wingding (TM), when I came across a pic of Kris Jenner on the red carpet. Holy crap on a cracker!
For one disorienting moment I truly thought that the actress/dancer/singer Ann Miller was still alive. Or reanimated.
I know Ann had lied about her age when she first got into showbiz and was not as old as most folks thought, but she passed away in 2004 at the age of 82 (give or take.)
But no! Here she was in the flesh, such as it is. (Some lucky dermatologist is making a fortune off of cheek plumpers here, for sure.)
It took me a little bit to realize that I was mistaken and was looking at Kris Jenner, she of the Kardashian Klan of self-promoters extraordinare.
I guess I wasn’t alone in my miscalculation because I later read a tweet by Lady Gaga that said “Michael Jackson’s corpse is looking amazing tonight.”
