MUSIC AND FASHION: HOLE DIY'S A TOO-BIG CONCERT TEE

Melissa Auf der Maur, bassist for Hole (and, later, Smashing Pumpkins) talks about what you can do to personalize band T-shirts. It's The Worst when all you have is a promo tee or a concert tee for a band that you really love in a crappy, massive size. It's as if girls weren't considered at all when some marketing d-bag ordered the pallet of Hanes Beefy Tees. As the proud owner of a million XXXL rap promo tees, I loved this segment on how to cut up and remix shirts to create cute, personalized halter necks and baby tanks.

Melissa and drummer Samantha Maloney talk about what they do to make tees their own. Samantha bedazzles a pink tank with rhinestones, and Melissa talks about using boybeater tanks and a Sharpie to talk to fans. For the time they played with Blondie, Melissa scrawled “Heart of Glass” on a tank; on the occasion of a performance in Detroit, she opted for “I love MOTOWN.” It's cute to see them proudly show off a rack of clothes that either they made, or that were made for them by friends and loved ones. It's awesome to see confident women who have all sorts of clothes at their disposal choose something unfussy and personal to wear onstsage. Plus, it's empowering if you skew DIY-y to see them wearing garments that are homespun. This is Todd Time with women you look up to and want to emulate.

MUSIC AND FASHION: REBECCA TALKS TO COURTNEY LOVE

Our red carpet host Rebecca Romijn talks to Courtney about what went into her VMA dress for the evening. Their rapport is weird and wonderful.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
