Grief is a complicated emotion and it rarely travels alone. Often comes to the party sad or angry, confused and anxious. Sometimes all of the above at once. Even the best psychologists cannot explain it simply or see it clearly in black and white.
However, with all the density of emotion, mourning is versatile. It is an emotional chameleon that manifests itself in multiple ways. We all receive and operate through grief differently, and perhaps that’s why Yung Miami chose to show her “fit for grandma” funeral.
On November 11, family, friends, and fans came together to honor Takeoff. The former Migos member lost his life in Houston earlier this month. The memorial was held at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, where Takeoff’s celebrity friends and industry peers said goodbye. Drake delivered a moving eulogy and Justin Bieber performed an acoustic rendition of his song. Ghost.
As is customary at funerals, guests arrived respectfully dressed in their black finery (see more at TheStateofFashion.bulletin.com). However, it cannot be forgotten that it is a celebrity funeral. Dark sunglasses covering puffy eyes ranged from Balenciaga to Versace, and Van Cleef jewelry was on display. However, when it’s a funeral, not a fashion show, serving up a look is often at the bottom of your list of worries—or at least, it should be.
After the funeral, Yung Miami posted photos of fly ‘fit on Instagram. A normal practice among A-listers and influencers, except this OOTD seemed a bit OOT (out of touch).
Decked out in a leather look, complete with a striking off-the-shoulder coat, minidress, Balenciaga BB boots and a satin quilted bag, Yung Miami posed for the grandmother in the same look she wore at Takeoff’s funeral. Subtitled with a letter of the success of Glorilla and Cardi B tomorrow 2the post shows Miami serving up the streets in a handful of runway-ready poses.
Although the letterEvery day the sun doesn’t shine but that’s why I love tomorrow.” hints at brighter days after Takeoff’s death, it could also just be read by captioning a photo with a current song or showing love to her fellow femcees. The comments further this idea with frequent llama emoji responses and the countless statements that speak to the appearance itself. Not usually the feedback one would get about what they wore as the departed. Miami also made sure to tag her hairstylist, hairstylist, and makeup artist in the photo, a common move when posting a “fit photo.”
In addition to Miami, Keyshia Ka’oir also dropped a funeral photo on IG. Although she ends her carousel with photos of the deceased along with her obituary, she followed it up with a separate post dealing with her appearance.
Without confirmation from Miami or Ka’oir, we cannot say that these women are not acting out of distress. Grief is a beast with many faces, and with both women being part of a leading imaging industry, it’s possible that showing up on Instagram is also how they show sadness. There’s also the argument of how close all the parties were. If neither Ka’oir nor Miami were in the immediate circle of Takeoffs, they might not see anything wrong with their posts, since made pay your respects.
It is also possible that they have fallen victim to their celebrity and have let their love of lights blind them to their better judgment. An event as high profile as the funeral of one of the most dynamic rappers of the early 2010s is likely to attract media attention. With Takeoff’s death as publicized as it is, coupled with the location of the service (an arena), it was unlikely that we the people I would not do it see the look
This raises some questions: Was this necessary? Who was this for? And nothing is sacred anymore? While I understand that ‘tight photos are part of the celebrity/influencer’s job, the already narrowing line between ‘what’s for TL’ and ‘what’s for RL’ gets even thinner when the days of mourning don’t they are saved from moments on social media.
As the desire to be seen on social media grows, we are bound to witness even more moments that make us question what It is not for the Gram never again. Although when it comes to funeral-related posts, well, we all grieve differently, right?
