This has been a memorable season for stink faces. During the "X Factor" semi-final results show, Britney Spears made the infamous shocked face when underdogs Fifth Harmony beat out boy band, Emblem3, for a spot in the finale.
How do we compare the two incidents? Whose stink face was funnier?
On some level, Taylor's reaction was more expected. She's going through a rough patch these days, coming off of her breakup with Harry Styles. She looked a bit drained and somber at last night's awards, and was probably hoping for a win to lift her spirits.
Britney's reaction, on the other hand, seemed to come out of nowhere. She didn't have a direct stake in whether or not Fifth Harmony or Emblem3 made the final, and her own act, Carly Rose Sonenclar, had enough of a dedicated fan base to pull her through despite an off night.
We're not used to seeing Taylor in a losing position at these awards shows. (I still don't understand why she beat out Michael Jackson for Artist of the Year at the AMAs.) We've seen her (feigned) "surprised" winner face, but it looks she needs to work on her "gracious loser" face, as well.
Meanwhile, Brit-Brit's reaction seemed a bit disrespectful to Fifth Harmony. She'd been dismissive of the girl group all week, and even at the results show, she seemed unwilling to give credit where it was due.
Usually Taylor comes across as so poised in her interviews, and I wonder if her goody-goody image is for real. It was refreshing to see some genuine emotion from her, and it also shows that these awards shows are not completely scripted!
Meanwhile, Brit-Brit's sour face was so refreshingly over-the-top that it almost made up for an entire season of blank stares and vapid one-line critiques.
Whose Stink Face Was Funnier?
Whose stink face was funnier? I'm going with Britney on this one. While we could see that Taylor was fuming, it was a bit uncomfortable to watch her attempt to turn that grimace into a smile.
Meanwhile, Britney's reaction was priceless because it was so out of control. The prolonged expression and the big buggy eyes made us wonder if she was over-medicated or off her meds.
Whose stink face was funnier: Taylor at the 2013 Golden Globes, or Britney at the "X Factor" semi-final results show? Was Taylor's reaction justified, or is she a sore loser?
