Macklemore and Justin Timberlake are all Gummy Bear buddies right now, but let's see what happens VMA night!
Although we're always down for a game of "Who's the babelier babe?," that's not why we're sharing this Justin Timberlake and Macklemore selfie. We actually want to celebrate the fact that our guys are competing for something else entirely -- six 2013 VMA nominations! Who's gonna win 'em? THE. GAME. IS. ON! (Besides, if we WERE gonna play the "Who's more handsome?" game, clearly both gents would win because we are equal opportunity hunk-admirers around here, and, because, well, look at them! #Drool)
The "Can't Hold Us" rapper and "Take Back The Night" singer snapped the above photo, and Macklemore shared it on his Instagram along with the caption, "Me & Justin getting Froyo in London. Crunch Berries and Gummi Bears. This guy goes in." Clearly, they're total buds right now, but we're worried that once the big day starts looming and #theboys start comparing how many of the newly redesigned Kaws Moonmen trophies they both stand to win, well... We'd just hate for it to get ugly. No heated exchanges of "What goes around comes back around, Mack!" and "Yo, JT! I'ma take your grandpa's style!" Play nice, guys.
Cast your vote NOW for this year’s Video Music Award winners from the 2013 VMA Nominees. The 2013 Video Music Awards air August 25 on MTV and VMA.MTV.com, live from the Brooklyn Barclays Center. No sleep til Brooklyn!

Taylor Swift honors her 2013 MTV VMA nominations with some elegant shade!
If you thought you were, like, BEYOND excited about the 2013 MTV Video Music Award nominations, just think about how the nominees themselves must be feeling! (Because it's not about you. It's about famous people.) Take, for instance, Taylor Swift's reaction to finding out that she's nominated for two 2013 VMAs -- "Video Of The Year" and "Best Female Video" for "I Knew You Were Trouble." The surprised star took to Twitter to express her excitement and said, "Two VMA nominations!! If you vote and get us one, I promise to keep a firmer grip on the mic this time ."
The "Everything Has Changed" singer was obviously referring to the now-infamous "Kanye West debacle of 2009," i.e. when the rapper crashed her acceptance speech. We're totally LOL-ing at Tay's joke, but we really gotta praise her ability to, as we like to say, "throw elegant shade" (which is something she's a PRO at). If we were Taylor, we probably would have tweeted something a little bolder -- maybe like, "IF I WIN, NO ONE COME ON STAGE WHEN I'M ACCEPTING UNLESS YOU ARE BOWING DOWN TO ME #SorryNotSorry." But alas, Taylor is just too darn nice to do anything even remotely like that... But that's why she's what you'd call "a bigger person." (Literally! Girl is TALL!)

Rihanna proudly wears a "SLUTZ" crop top in Manchester, England.
LOLs to the max if you thought Rihanna couldn't get away with walking around in a "SLUTZ" shirt. Nope, instead her cheery face is totally saying, "HA! Clearly you don't get the joke! I'm not talking about being sexually promiscuous! It's a play on grammar. Like, "SLUTZ" instead of "UTZ! Like, the potato chip brand!" Seriously, who would have thought that Ri had a such a "taste" for syntax?? (PUNZ!)
The 2013 MTV Video Music Award nominee was snapped leaving her hotel in Manchester, England, where she opted to leave her diamond grill at home in favor of some blinged-out sunglasses (PUH-lease, you know them puppies aren't cubic zirconium) and an amazing "SLUTZ" crop top. And it's not enough that Ri was hanging around town in between live performances -- obvs she HAD TO make an entrance with her buff abs AND take things to the next level with a brilliant punny T-shirt. (Also, um, does this remind anybody of Lindsay Bluth's "Shemale" T-shirt from "Arrested Development"?? Anyone?!) There could be a million reasons why Rihanna opted for this top, but we're guessing the main one was to remind the universe she will ALWAYS reign as the Queen of IDGAF...Z.

Beyoncé has officially mastered the Taylor Swift surprised face!
OK. Game over. Nothing to see here, other than the fact that Beyoncé just DOMINATED Taylor Swift's famous "Swifty Surprise Face"! Oh, and not only did she take down all of the (unintentional) contenders to the throne, like Katy Perry, Carly Rae Jepsen, and One Direction's Niall Horan, but she also knocked Taylor out of the (totally made up) contest -- AND TAYLOR WAS THE ONE WHO STARTED IT! (Hey, we don't want to be the "told you so" type around here, but we did say that Taylor needed to get a trademark on this ish for this exact kind of reason... Just sayin'.)
The "Rise Up" singer was snapped making a giant surprised face during her hometown stop in Houston on "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour." And not only did Bey deliver in every single musical performance, but she also brought the ultimate "What's this? You all came here for meee?" look. Perhaps that's why she made the expression in the first place! Or maybe she saw some old haters from high school (if those even existed?!) out in the audience and used this perfect homecoming moment to declare, "Oh wait, who runs the world, now? Moi?!" (Also, could you even imagine if you were someone that actually hated on Mrs. Carter back in high school? They're SO kicking themselves right now.)

Miley Cyrus is and always will be a die-hard Honey Boo Boo fan!
PUH-RAISE! Two of our favorite pop culture worlds have collided! During a recent visit to "Good Morning America," Miley Cyrus was snapped carrying a cardboard sign with "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star Honey Boo Boo's face on it! There just isn't enough "WAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!" in the world to express THE UTTER JOY of seeing Miley embrace her support for the most loveable/talented/hilarz little American icon to ever exist! (What? Too much?)
Check out more photos of Miley Cyrus showing her Honey Boo Boo love after the jump!
Rihanna's mouth shines bright like a diamond... because it's covered in REAL diamonds!
Rihanna wasn't J/K-ing about shining bright like a diamond -- HOLY BLING, girl's grill is BEYOND! (Upon our extensive investigative research, aka Google, those diamonds are cushion-cut, which explains why they're so sparkly. #TheMoreYouKnow.) But honestly, we were slightly more distracted by RiRi's two other GIGANTIC assets in this photo -- her equally glammed-out bracelet and chain necklace combo, obvs! Ummm, what did you think we meant!?! (Oh... Er... Well, ahem, those too.)
The "Diamonds" singer shared her sparkly accessory love on Instagram, coupled with the equally bold caption, "I'm an outlaw b****!!" We're not too sure what lawbreaking activity Rihanna's referencing. Maybe it's exposing those lethal abs via her ever-shrinking bikinis? Or, maybe she's referring to her naughty little "botanical" obsession? Orrr, maybe her IDGAF attitude now extends to breaking every regulation set forth by the American Dental Association?? We're pretty sure four out of five dentists would agree that skipping flossing because you're afraid of losing one of your gazillion-karat mouth jewels isn't the wisest path to dental hygiene. Love the grill, RiRi, but just know that we want you to stay... free of plaque.

Justin Bieber had a low-key weekend visiting with a polar bear at a zoo in Ohio!
After all of that monkey business with Justin Bieber and his little primate friend, we kinda wondered if he'd take a break from hanging out with wildlife. But judging by this photo of Justin visiting with a polar bear, captioned "Dream Big," it looks like Justin's animal-loving spirit hasn't been shattered after all! Um, we're hoping Justin's "big dream" isn't about making a pet out of this guy. Sure, the idea of being spooned by a gigantic fluffy bear on a cold winter's night is cute in theory, but we've seen enough Animal Planet to know that those "cuddly"creatures will GUT AND EAT YOU LIKE NBD. So, if you want exotic, stick to to ferrets.
Check out more photos of Justin Bieber visiting with animals after the jump!
Ke$ha flips off the world in the most relaxing way ever!
If you've ever wondered whether Ke$ha's, ahem, private moments from her reality series, "Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life," have made her more vulnerable, this photo of her flipping the bird should give you a pretty good answer. Either K-Dolla is taking a play from Rihanna's "How to show the world you don't give an eff" book, or she's taking this moment to express her frustration toward all craft stores in the world that can't keep enough sequins, jewels, and glitter in stock. JK! (But seriously, being a craft-obsessed pop star has to be stressful. So let's just give Ke$ha a moment to let it all out.)
The "Crazy Kids" singer was snapped giving the middle finger while performing at the 2013 Yahoo! Wireless Festival in London, and we have to give her a hand. (See what we did there?) After all, it's such an underrated ability to look calm and say "IDGAF" at the same time! Seriously, Ke$ha has a true gift (you know, besides the singing, songwriting, and inspiring millions of fans). Every time we throw out that gesture.... actually, we NEVER throw that gesture, because our mom might be reading this, and she doesn't need to know how we handle our haters. (We blow kisses at them, mom, pinky swear!)

Lana Del Rey ISN'T wearing a BALL GOWN? We're confused.
We're kinda confused. Based on almost every Lana Del Rey music video we've ever seen, we kinda thought that soft-focus lighting, chic wardrobes, and dramatic music followed Lana everywhere she went IRL. But, judging by the above photo of Lana going out in a casual baseball cap and sneakers, we were totally wrong! She totally skipped the glam gowns for what we'd like to officially dub as an "I'm on my way home from a sorority mixer" motif. (Coming your way in fall 2013!)
The "Young And Beautiful" singer was snapped leaving a recording studio (um, NEW MUSIC ALERT!?) in London while rocking our personal Sunday best (aka no brunch plans and only a hot date with a laundromat). And yet, even when dressed like she's heading to a rummage sale, Lana still manages to look confidently Brigitte Bardot-flawlessness for the camera. What? Are you surprised? We're talking about a girl who accepts onstage panty donations while performing like NBD! When you can proudly hold a stranger's lacy underwear in your hand and not miss a beat, you pretty much get our respect in anything you do forever. Even if it does include baseball caps and sneakers.

Summer in NYC can be hot. Luckily, Lady Gaga keeps cool by NOT WEARING A SHIRT.
PUH-RAISE! GAGALOO HAS RETURNED! We're SUPER excited about more Lady Gaga sightings (like during her recent national anthem performance), but now that she's back on our radar, we do have a few major questions. One of those questions is, "GAGA, WHERE THE EFF IS YOUR SHIRT!? Girl, you in public!" And that's not even including questions like, "Where has Mother Monster been hiding out this entire time?" "Was she napping in her egg cocoon, or changing personas again? Orrr was she just spending 24/7 at the gym? 'Cause this no-shirt moment is showing off Gaga in peak form.
The "Marry The Night singer may have taken a hiatus from the public eye after canceling her "Born This Way" tour due to hip surgery, but that little vacay doesn't mean she forgot how to shock the world. Oh, and if showing off her bra in public wasn't screaming "I'm BAAAACK!" enough, Gaga also announced a Nov. 11 release date for her ARTPOP album and that we can expect a single from the new album as soon as Aug. 19! So maybe Gaga is so verklempt over her announcement that she just couldn't keep her shirt on? Some people like to celebrate good news over ice cream, but Gaga likes to get half-naked in public to honor a momentous occasion. (But really, are you that surprised?)
