Oh, Internet. You sure do obsess over weird things sometimes.
Like the actual colors of a dress (blue and black? White and gold? Who cares?). Or whether Mariah Carey has a magical invisible chair. Or Jessica Simpson's decision to take her daughter to a makeup counter.
But today? Today, Internet, you've fallen for one of the weirdest traps ever. Today the Internet is obsessed with Gigi Hadid's armpits.
Unless you've been living under some sort of Internet rock, you probably know who Gigi Hadid is.
Back in February, a video surfaced of Hadid appearing to make fun of Asian people.

As a result of the video (and the outrage it sparked), Hadid was banned from walking in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show that took place in Shanghai earlier this month."I’m so bummed I won’t be able to make it to China this year," she posted on Twitter. "Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!!" If by "won't be able to make it" you actually mean, "am not legally allowed to go," then sure, Gigi. So that was the biggest controversy plaguing Hadid's career. At least, it was until another video came to light...
Love Magazine posted the following video on their Instagram:Emily Ratajkowski rolling around in spaghetti and Kendall Jenner boxing. (A brief aside: This is way different from any advent calendar we've ever had before. We're more used to advent calendars of the cheap chocolate variety.) Anyway, did you spot the part of Hadid's video that is taking over the Internet?
Here's a screenshot:

via: InstagramApparently, there's actually some controversy about whether it's actually even hair in Hadid's armpits. The photographer on the shoot said the darkness under her arms was actually due to "the sweat & the dust of that building."

A lot of people are inspired by what they perceive as Hadid's confidence.
