We're basically still reeling from all the boy band memories in The Wanted's "Walks Like Rihanna" video. I mean, can you blame us?? It's not every day we're met with an onslaught of scenes from *NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye," the Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way," and Take That's "Back For Good"... AT THE SAME TIME. No wonder we're so dizzy! Wait, we might actually be dizzy from this brilliant collection of "Walks Like Rihanna" GIFs, orchestrated by our very own AWARD-WINNING GIF wizard, T. Kyle MacMahon! That's right: Not only can you repeatedly watch The Wanted blowing kisses (and sort of grabbing themselves) at the airport à la the Backstreet Boys, but you can ALSO stare at Max George's face getting drenched in water over and over and over and over... wait, what were we talking about?

Joe Jonas nips those sex tape rumors in the bud on the "Jonas Brothers: Live From MTV" livestream.
You could never accuse the Jonas Brothers of not having a sense of humor. They may be serious musicians with bragging rights of more than 8 million records sold in seven years and another album -- their fifth -- on the way. But the Bros weren't afraid to twerk, draw hilarious versions of Grumpy Cat and "The Hunger Games" and make a coy reference to Sofia Vergas' er... assets... during yesterday's "Jonas Brothers: Live From MTV" livestream, where Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas spent a cheer-filled half hour (literally, the Columbia University cheerleading squad kicked off the livestream with their very own Jonas collegiate cheer) discussing their new single, "Pom Poms," their upcoming 25-city tour, the new album, and what it's like to get the band back together after a brief period where Joe and Nick embarked on solo projects and Kevin filmed the compulsively watchable "Married To Jonas." And they also had no qualms about using the fan forum as an opportunity to address that pesky little adult film rumor floating around about Joe and his girlfriend.

Paramore's brand-new "Still Into You" video is about the free-wheeling sugar high head rush of the brightest days of being in love. But if you look at the subtext, you'll see that the video is OBVIOUSLY about GIFs! Why else would Paramore be poppin' wheelies, riding a canoe in a sea of balloons and leaving Hayley to wake up in a bedroom of cakes (DREAM BEDROOM, by the way!) if it weren't for the ENDLESS Paramore GIF opportunities?
We put our AWARD-WINNING GIF master, T. Kyle MacMahon on the job, and we can't say we're mad at the result; we didn't think Paramore's "Still Into You" video, directed by Isaac Rentz had the teensiest iota of room left for any additional fun, but we were wrong. Check out our Paramore "Still Into You" GIF wall, and watch "Still Into You" video and live Paramore performances from MTV!

Oh, look! It's a new Taylor Swift video! And in keeping with One Direction and Ke$ha's "Live Like We're Gonna Die Young" trend, Taylor's "22" video celebrates the ish out of being just young enough to successfully chest-bump on a trampoline without crashing down in a heap of broken limbs (then she'd REALLY be "lying on the cold, hard ground," LOL). OK, all bad jokes aside, we were totally memorized by Taylor's ode to female friendship (those are her real buds in the video!), which is positively stuffed with hair flips, booty-poppin', cat ears, beach trips, baked goods, pool parties, and most importantly, Taylor's longstanding inclusion of "hipster" glasses. So, with this abundance of STUFF, of course we had to dedicate a GIF wall to "22"! Relive Taylor Swift's "22" video below, and remember: never attempt a midair trampoline chest-bump without a spotter.

How Beyoncé's Super Bowl conference national anthem looked... in my mind.
Beyoncé reaffirmed her bawse status and was like "lol, no, bai h8rs" by busting out the national anthem at the Super Bowl press conference yesterday with the aid/ assistance/ backing support of absolutely no one but God. God, and the spirit of twirling Lana Del Rey, who should really join Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland at the Super Bowl if Michelle Williams is really just too busy... doing something far more important than reuniting Destiny's Child at the Super Bowl.

So, we can all concede that Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie" lyric video (featuring Jay-Z) is the very picture of slick, right? Between all the stylish ties, cuff links, close shaves, pianos, cigars, dapper cars, and whiskey drinks, we now feel slicker than every Bond film ever made (and yes, that includes "Skyfall" -- perhaps the slickest of the Bonds). Funny, we always fancied ourselves decent dressers, but JT's black-and-white, ultra-dapper ode to a nice Tom Ford or Alexander Wang has officially changed our entire perspective on getting dressed in the morning. Tomorrow, we're going all out -- like, BALL GOWN-STYLE. While you wait for that, please don't hesitate to relive Justin Timberlake's beauty routine in our official batch of "Suit & Tie" GIFs, by T. Kyle MacMahon of RealityTVGIFs.tumblr.com.

One Direction take off on the zayn-iest (get it?) road trip ever in their "Kiss You" video. It's also the most shirtless road trip ever and surely their most shirtless music video to date. (Hopefully this marks the beginning of a trend.) There is absolutely zero plot, but who even knows or cares what a plot is or what it's good for when ALL OF ONE DIRECTION IS SHIRTLESS! Surfboard hilarity, jailhouse hijinx, and general '60s madcap malarkey ensues -- that's just what happens when five freewheelin' BFFs G2G! -- and Directioners, take heart in knowing that no girls were kissed in the "Kiss You" video, but Zayn and Harry do share a bit of a snog, which more than makes up for the indignity we suffered by not being invited on this bro-fest video vacay.
Now if you'll excuse us, it's time to enjoy these One Direction "Kiss You" video GIFs by the exquisite T. Kyle MacMahon of RealityTVGIFs.tumblr.com.

Looking back at the year in pop music, we're kinda overwhelmed by just how many major moments there were in pop -- everything from K-Pop viral videos to Rihanna "777" airplane anarchy! But you know we're all about rehashing the past -- especially when we can do it in GIF form. (That's how things look in our imaginations, anyway.)
So we got to work creating a comprehensive collection of GIFs that sum up the year in pop music: There's Rihanna "SHAYNING bright" in her stunning "Diamonds" video, Nicki Minaj grinding against Justin Bieber in their "Beauty And A Beat" video, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus (and Rihanna!) going overboard with cake consumption (honestly, when did cake become a thing??), Harry Styles getting borderline inapprops with an inflatable banana in One Direction's "Live While We're Young" video, Psy's now-famous "Gangnam Style," aka the horsey dance heard 'round the world, and so much more.
We learned to lasso imaginary ponies with Psy's "Gangnam Style."
We'll always love you, Whitney Houston! Rest in peace.
Nicki Minaj got SUPER friendly with Cassie in their "The Boys" video... so close that if we smoked, we'd need a cigarette after.

The year 2012 was a stellar one for clever wordplay and, well, big booty hos. Before 2012 draws to a ceremonious close, let's celebrate some of our favorite song lyrics -- from Pink's satisfyingly succinct "I had a s*** day/ You had a s*** day" line in "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" to Taylor Swift's breathtakingly romantic "Just twin fire signs/ Four blue eyes" in "State Of Grace" to One Direction's full embrace of our flaws in "Little Things" and each and every last pearl that came out of 2 Chainz's mouth ("put it in your kidney," for one). Check out some of our favorite lyrics of 2012 in GIF form, natch. F*** yeah, awesome.
Taylor Swift, "State Of Grace"
Kanye West featuring 2 Chainz, "The One"
Carly Rae Jepsen, "Call Me Maybe"
Sky Ferreira, "Everything Is Embarrassing"
