Katie Perry Tamagotchi

Last night, both Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom wore Tamogotchis on their outfits at the annual Met Gala fundraiser. The Internet is understandably abuzz and I can't decide if this is awesome or awful. Why are the Illuminati embracing the 1997 pop culture phenomenon? Is this going to be a thing now? Why were both celebs wearing black and white Tamagotchis? Is now the time to sell my faithful, perpetually pooping and dying virtual pet on eBay? What the hell is going on?!

Fun Fact: The name Tamagotchi is a portmanteau of the Japanese "Tamago", which means "egg", and the English word "watch".

    While I'm partial to the "hard-luck" Hanshin Tigers, these sneakers - a collaboration between the Hiroshima Toyo Carp and Vans - are super adorable.
