Y’all know I love Family Guy. However, as the great philosopher Meat Loaf sang, “I’d do anything for love (but I won’t do that.)”
In this case, “that” is a custom-made, 12-carat, ruby-and-diamond Stewie Griffin necklace, like the one purchased by Justin Bieber and inflicted upon my eyes by TMZ.com.
When I saw this, I thought, “I haven’t seen anything that disturbing since Mariah Carey’s push present!” Lo and behold, this one is by the same jeweler, Jason of Beverly Hills. When it comes to custom work, my policy has always been “If you can describe it and pay for it, I’ll make it.” I think I need to revise that to something like, “If you can describe it and pay for it, but it’s hideous, I know a guy in Beverly Hills who can take good care of you.”
Thanks, sort of, to gorgeous blogger Stef for pointing this out to me.
Another thing that was recently pointed out to me — by Family Guy itself — is that the 1985 “Dancing in the Street” music video by Mick Jagger and David Bowie is the gayest video of all time. (“OF ALL TIME!” an imaginary Kanye West screams in my head.) I don’t disagree.
Maybe they’ll do a piece for Courtney Love next?!
Also, the other day while watching Family Guy, I cringed sooooooo much watching that music video. Why was this allowed to exist? It’s not gay, it’s painful!
OMFG KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!
Damnit Bieber! Why did he even have that made? It’s… It’s… *reloads flamethrower*
As for Bowie and Jagger’s video, the story goes that the two were to perform an intercontinental duet during Live Aid (Bowie in London, Jagger in Philly), but due to technical issues, the two with music engineer David Richards created the gayest video ever. 😉
Oh, you crack me up! That is a pretty gay video. And I’m liking your new policy about ugly jewelry.
I guess some people just have crazy disposable income. But, why can’t they spend it on nice things like your jewelry and my clothes? LOL
Ha, that video has extensive silk puffy shirtage, I recall (I can’t watch it, I hate that version of Martha and the Vandellas’ great song!). Back in the day (I sound like such a crone), when all we had up here in Canada was MuchMusic (step-child of MTV) in the 80s, they ran music videos before movies sometimes. That’s where I first saw this video: in a movie theatre. Crazy, eh?
Oh, and that Stewie necklace is gaudy and crass. Just sayin’.
haha it is, the bump bumping haunts me………..
Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl says
Hahaha, I can always trust your blog to lift my spirits 🙂 And this video is just ridiculous if you watch it on mute!
All I have to say is, Why???
Make Do Style says
Useful revision of your statement!!
Penny Dreadful Vintage says
By crikey, that is not good.
It looks like they were totally trashed, and one of them slurred, “Ya wanna make a video? Professshhhhionals that we are, I bet we can make it in 40 minutes shkintin’ drunk, and it’ll go platinum.” And the other one said, “Shure…as long as I can keep drinking.”
Stewie- how do I chisel this off of my retinas?
Oh jeeze. That’s freakin ridiculous. Celebrities have too much money.
Oh dear God. This is as disturbing as hearing of a survery that asked women over 18 if they thought Justin Beiber was “a sex symbol”. I had to take the afternoon off after that.
Thing is, Justin is just 12, and Mariah is a grown women; at least he has time to grow up and develop taste.
I am cracking up at the necklace!!
It’s just TOO MUCH
Why? WHY?! $12K when he could’ve just gotten some rhinestone piece with the same effect. Oh god this so stupid!
Hi there-I do love your revised selling philosophy, too true indeed!!

RE: Necklaces that make one’s retinas bleed
As GrammyRubi would say, “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you ought to.”
Can we have an amendment to the “Wear what you want” rule to include “But not a stewie griffin diamond necklace”
This is why 17 year olds shouldn’t have access to crazy amounts of money. They spend it on that.
a stylized hysteria says
As far as I’m concerned this post contains two of the greatest music videos ever made. That outshines that terrible, terrible Stewie bling.
I love that this post came full circle and ended with another hilarious video. Ha!
SOMEone has to uphold the standards of good taste. And it ain’t Jason of Beverly Hills. He ought to change his name to Jason of Grossenatingville.
First off I’m flattered your Anti-Spam called me hot stuff 😉
Lmao That Stewie piece is hilarious and I agree about not seeing something so disturbing since the “push present”
I think I laughed out loud a little when you quoted Meatloaf BTW haha BUT I WON’T DO THAT!
Hope all is well with you Xoxo
Guess the Biebs already has too much money! haha
Bella Q says
that family guy thingy is pretty gnarly. I would hate to have to make things like that.

Emily Britton says
Thank God you have Jewelry sense, Stuie not classy mudflap ladies with ruby nipples classy and cute.
That's Not My Age says
Strangely, I quite like the Stewie pendant…
For Those About To Shop says
I remember seeing that Dancing in the Street video debut at Live Aid! Yes, I’m that old. And gay is right. Hilarious. They’re both so skinny, too. Funny. Thanks for the viewing pleasure.
Haha! Both of those pieces are hideous. I saw that Family Guy as well and got so engrossed in trying to figure out how that music video was ever ok’d that I forgot I was even watching Family Guy.
Emma at Daily Clothes Fix says
Eek! I think this might have needed a warning. What with weird jewellery and that video, I might need help. I think I made it worse by watching it without sound. Expect the bill from my therapist. 🙂
I saw that video on a REALLY big screen before a movie in 1985. It scared the crap out of me (Mick Jagger does that) and I thought at any second they were going to swallow each others tongues or something.
