Macy Gray’s “My New Album Drops” Dress from the 2001 MTV VMAs!

Tonight, the pandemic-era MTV VMAs will go down, and I’m sure that thanks to technical difficulties, shit will be messier than Courtney Love throwing that iconic compact at Madonna. So in honor of the MTV VMAs and messiness, I am paying tribute to the highly tasteful gown, straight from the House of No Shame, that Macy Gray wore to the VMAs in 2001 to promote her album The Id.

In 2001, Twitter and Instagram didn’t exist, so a trick had to get creative to whore out a new album. Macy has never really had a fuck to give in her entire being, but she really threw out all the fucks when she showed up to the MTV VMAs on September 6, 2001, in a stunning dress that looked like it was sloppily put together using my abuelita’s favorite party-going blouse, a pool cover, and toolbox clasps. It looked like the winning dress in a Project Runway challenge where the designers had to come up with a gorgeous STUNT QUEEN coronation gown. And while Macy’s dress was extremely elegant from the front, it was even more elegant from the back. Show those amateur stunt queens how it’s done, Macy!

So Macy goes out in public with “Buy it!” on her ass and gets her picture taken, but when I hit the streets with “Buy it!” on my ass, rude motherfuckers ask for a refund without even buying!

Macy was a presenter that night so the dress was seen by millions. But well, Macy may have done the most with that dress but it did the least for her album. Obviously, Macy (and all of us) didn’t know it at the time, but the 9/11 terrorist attacks happened a week before her album came out. And not only that, but The Id’s release date was actually September 17 and not September 18. So it initially flopped, coming in at #11 on the Billboard 200, but it did go on to sell almost 600,000 copies in the US (although her debut album sold 3.4 million copies in the US alone). But yeah, so Macy’s album didn’t do that well, who cares since she went quadruple platinum in the art of shamelessness.
