No matter how experimental Hollywood actors get with their tuxedos or how many grails NBA players pile on at one time, no famous tribe rages harder with clothes than musicians.
For proof of that, just look to the Grammy Awards, which for 60 years have been home to the most epic sequin-, leather-, and velvet-adorned getups, extremely impractical accessories, and head-scratching suits the world has ever seen. Musicians set the bar high and they set it weird with their clothes, and as such they influence trends like no one else. At this weekend’s awards show, we’ll see what the likes of Childish Gambino, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar have to challenge us with for 2019. Until then, please enjoy the ridiculously awesome glory of the past several decades of shows. Don’t blame us if you emerge with a burning desire to invest in patent-leather pants. Blame Sisqó, Alice Cooper, and one-time Grammy attendee Hulk Hogan.
