What Musicians Were Wearing and Sharing on Instagram This Week 12/18

The holiday spirit.

Christmas is one week away, and I still didn't get you anything. JK I'm gifting you with these amazing photos of your favorite artists. Actually this was a great week on the 'Gram, fashion-wise. Like even I—who only really gets excited over reruns of Saved By The Bell—was excited to share the pics from this week. Okay, so bundle up Polar Vortex style and check out this week on Instagram! Did that sound like I was a game show host? I hope so; I was totally going for that.


Ariana Grande

#MyFavoritePartVideo That time I dropped my groceries, had a bowl of Cheerios, fell in love w my neighbor through the wall telepathically and it rained in my apartment. I love you @larryfisherman. We made another cool duet and i like your singing voice. ♡

All of this romance between Ariana Grande and Mac Miller is getting in the way of my deciding if I want an acid washed denim shearling like the one Ariana has on. Love won't let me live.

Kanye West

Shared from Elliott Wilson's IG because Kanye only puts fragments of male models and cryptic messages on his IG account. This look right here though? This is that face you make after your hairdresser totally fucked up your dye job and you don't want to hurt her feelings so when she holds up the mirror you're like, "It's…great," and then you walk out and realize you have to live with yourself until it grows out. Yes, that run on sentence describes this exactly. Also, this was taken before we found out Kanye was hanging out with Trump, so this is all the kindness I can muster up about this photo in time for the holiday season.

Jay Z

IM UP TO SOMETHING !!! #WeTheBest @wethebestmusic @rocnation #2017 #BLESSUP

Since Jay Z and I dress the exact same way, does this mean I am always dressed for success?


Jenny Lewis

…my people… it's almost christmas!

JENNY DIANE LEWIS FUCKING HOLIDAY CHEER APPRECIATION POST!!! A beret and cheetah boots? Come on. Even those inflatable robots can't compete. She sleighs all day. Get it? Ugh. Terrible pun.

DJ Khaled

Happy holidays bless up

A photo posted by DJ KHALED (@djkhaled) on Dec 12, 2016 at 8:30pm PST

Had to share one more from DJ Khaled's account because I want to extend my appreciation for Fabolous' beard. Also, apparently Jay Z and I don't always dress the same.

Mariah Carey

Backstage at Christmas time with our beautiful children. @beyonce #christmas #family #love

Stop what you're doing and check out Blue Ivy. Just look at her! Coolest adult ever and she's only just a kid.

Miley Cyrus

It's startin to look a lot like you know what

A photo posted by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) on Dec 13, 2016 at 10:56am PST

Saw that Christmas bulb necklace at Urban Outfitters last week and was like, "I'd get this, but this looks like something Miley Cyrus would wear on Instagram." And well, here we are.

Nicki Minaj

Hello from the other side @donatella_versace

A photo posted by Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj) on Dec 12, 2016 at 1:20pm PST

If only Nicki Minaj broke into a rendition of Patra's "Queen Of the Pack" in this outfit, my entire life would be complete.



Ayyyyeeeeee….. (I'm Feeling Loveallyyyy Bih ) #Plies #RacksUpToMyEar #PurpleHeart #RichNiggaShit #RanOffOnDaPlugTwice #RitzCarlton

I'm beginning to realize that Plies haters lack any real joy in their lives. Seriously? If you can't smile at a pink sombrero and matching fur outfit with gold shoes, then maybe you're just jealous of that rack in his hand? Wow I am ODing on pleasantries here.

I interviewed all three of these ladies in 2016, and needless to say they were all awesome. As an aside, Alessia Cara might be my daughter.

Fat Joe

Me and the Doc @mojgandds ran into Bill and Hillary at Rao's NYC #upnyc

A photo posted by FAT JOE (@fatjoe) on Dec 13, 2016 at 8:00pm PST

After you're done wiping your eyes over the President we didn't get, you'll notice Fat Joe creepin' in the corner of this photo.

Chris Brown

@shmateo_ @ogleloo @blackpyramidofficial

A photo posted by 1 YOU ❤ 2 HATE (@chrisbrownofficial) on Dec 15, 2016 at 5:05pm PST

This photo reminded me of the fact that I need new sneakers.

Josh Groban

Was honored to be profiled by Michael Paulson for this Sunday's @nytimes on the work that went into playing this awesome role of Pierre in @greatcometbway!

A photo posted by Josh Groban (@joshgroban) on Dec 15, 2016 at 4:36pm PST

Sometimes I can't decide if I'm in love with Josh Groban or just the idea of Josh Groban. Either way, this photo is pure fire. Play that accordion, Joshy! Bring some joy to the world.


Gucci Mane

Even in what I'm going to go ahead and call an Ugly Christmas Sweater, Gucci Mane is doing it big. #EastAtlantaSanta

Shawn Mendes

Such a great visit to @childrensatl yesterday, got to meet so many inspiring kids with @ryanfoundation & @paper_mate #spreadjoy

A photo posted by Shawn Mendes (@shawnmendes) on Dec 15, 2016 at 1:38pm PST

Had to post this one, because Shawn Mendes is such a sweetie for this.
