Happy New Year, guys! Were you in Times Square with us ringing in 2012 during MTV’s “NYE In NYC”? Or were you in Vegas with Bruno Mars? No? Well, sorry about that/sorry for rubbing it in. But I’m sure you had a fine time getting puked on wherever you celebrated the end of 2011, too. (JK, there was no puke during my New Year’s Eve. Just lots of crying girls. Always crying girls.)

In case you spent the last 10 seconds of 2011 in your grandma’s basement or delivering a baby or something else boring like that, never fear — we’ve got photos of all the cool things our favorite pop stars were doing during their New Year’s celebrations so you can live vicariously through them! And we don’t know what better way to start off a new year than by looking at pictures of people with lives you want to live! (It’s called “The Secret.” Look it up.) Check out a few of our faves below, and peep HOW OUR FAVORITE POP STARS CELEBRATED NEW YEAR’S PHOTO GALLERY for all the action.

Not everyone had a noisemaker and a crown to ring in the new year. Taylor Swift spent the last few days of 2011 on a cold winter beach somewhere with nary a streamer or champagne bottle in sight. Taylor tweeted this photo explaining, “Nothing quite like a freezing cold, wintery beach.” Deep-zees.

LMFAO took our eardrums hostage during the past year whether we liked it or not. And (thankfully?), they’ve taken the same approach to sending off 2011. The party rockers got nearly naked during their Las Vegas performance — whether we liked it or not.
