If you want some authentic criticism these days, skip over the wordsmiths and their snarky witticisms and go straight to a critic who wears her opinion like a chip on her shoulder. Go with Grumpy Cat.
Two days before the MTV Movie Awards aired on Sunday night, the meme queen primed the world’s pump about crashing the soiree on her very own Twitter account.
But how ever would it come to pass? Silently, that’s how.
It all started out where all the other celebrity sightings take place at every celebrity-worthy event: on the red carpet, where a one-sided interview was all attitude. See the video:
It’s hard work peering out at a thankless world with that much loathing at the drop of a hat. Even when the hat is a miniaturized version of the Dudley Dooright hat made questioningly famous at recent awards functions by Pharrell Williams.
Being cuddled by Johnny Knoxville only softened Grumpy Cat’s woeful gaze by a few degrees to one more along the lines of a helpless animal awaiting a painful prank:
And then, of course, there’s the shot snapped by Mashable‘s entertainment editor, Josh Lincoln Dickson, who happened across Grumpy Cat acting completely out of character:
Oh, Grumpy Cat. Can’t you just be cute and cuddly? According to Judd Apatow’s eldest daughter, Maude, you’ve trumped her own pet, Fluffy Pants McGee, in the cuteness department.
Why isn’t Fluffy Pants McGee cute anymore, Grumpy Cat? Because of you…
You couldn’t even be happy snuggling with all those lithe, perfume-scented fingers showing off their manicures on the Nail Art Cam: You’re a jerk, Grumpy Cat, but you probably don’t even know that because you’re just a cat and that means you’re too stupid to even know what jerk means. Or are you? Just consider yourself lucky that another famous grumpy animal didn’t show up to cameo the hell out of an awards ceremony. Ever heard of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog? Conan O’Brien loved him first. You know why? Because he was a jerk and he could actually tell a joke. You can visit here for Grumpy Cat’s 50 funniest moments.
