It Couldn't Be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that; At least no one ever has done it;" But he took off his coat and he took off his hat And the first thing we knew he'd begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure, There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s the fact that Katy Perry always nails her costume to no fail. She’s honestly pretty much the queen of costumes. The talented and eccentric singer always leaves her mark, whether it be at an event or in a music video. And when it comes to Met Galas, she really makes sure to never disappoint. Although this past Met Gala, unfortunately, had to be postponed until further notice, Perry still showed us what we missed through an Instagram post, and to say that it was cool would be a serious understatement.

While we all know that Perry never wears anything even remotely close to average, 2020’s Met Gala look based off of her exciting baby-bump was one to note. Based on her social media post, she had plans to shock her fans with a Jean-Paul Gautier and ‘90s Madonna vibe.  While what she revealed in her post, showing her copper cone top connected a corset piece was surely enough to get our blood pumping, we do wish she showed us more of what she had in store for the big event.  After seeing her giant chandelier outfit from 2019’s Met Gala, we can really only assume that 2020 would have been beyond iconic.

In fact, Katy Perry is the only star to have teased fans with what they missed this year. Both Emma and Julia Roberts took it to social media too to display their impressive poofy dresses that intended to show off at the 2020 Met Gala, and Seyfried shared her modern-day farm girl look. So while fashion fanatics won’t be getting the chance to analyze all the best and worst outfits of this year, at the least they can discuss what would have been thanks to these celebs that have so kindly shared some sneak peeks!
