Beyoncé's note for marriage equality is BEYOND sweet. Is someone cutting onions in here?!
You may recall that Beyoncé likes to show her support for people and causes via handwritten notes (Emily Post would be so proud). Remember when she sent love to Frank Ocean with a handwritten poem and wrote a touching letter to President Obama? Well, Bey's latest letter is in support of the LGBT community as they await the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage ruling! GUYS! Beyoncé's not just a sexy daredevil; she's also an official supporter of equal rights! Sooo we're kinda confused: Why are the courts still debating? Queen B just made her ruling, so just "Bow Down" and make it legal already!
The "Life Is But A Dream" star shared a note on her Instagram that reads: "If you like it you should be able to put a ring on it" along with the hashtag "#wewillunite4marriageequality!" (Signed with a gigantic "B," of course, because HELLO, she's the only "B" that matters.) Oh, and we hope y'all don't think you're getting a break from politics after this whole court ruling is finished, 'cause soon it'll be time to start on our next unofficial (but PLEASE, GOD, MAKE IT OFFICIAL ONE DAY) political business: "Beyoncé for President 2020" campaign.

Jared Leto got A HUMAN EAR sent to him in the mail, then turned it into a necklace like NBD.
When we say we'd do ANYTHING for our the artists we love, y'all know that's to a certain point, right? Well, apparently one of Thirty Second To Mars singer Jared Leto's fans didn't receive the "DON'T SHOW YOUR LOVE BY CUTTING OFF BODY PARTS" memo. Because they did -- a fan actually shipped A HUMAN EAR to Jared (click the above photo of Jared to see the severed ear, then try not to barf). Now, that's what we call a STAN. Also, can we NOT make this a trend -- PLEASE?!

Katy Perry delivers an epic "Taylor Swift surprised" face at the 2013 Kids' Choice Awards!
There are two HUGE things going on in this photo from Nickelodeon's 2013 Kids' Choice Awards that we're basically LIVING FOR. First, is there a budding sexy-single-BFF thing between Katy Perry and Selena Gomez that we haven't officially heard about yet? They've been hanging out a lot and even sat next to each other at the awards like total besties?! Second, Katy's facial expression deserves a standing ovation -- girl NAILED Taylor Swift's classic "surprised" face! Oh, and while we're on that topic, we really suggest Taylor getting a trademark on that face STAT, 'cause everyone's doing it, and she's losing potential revenues.
The "Teenage Dream" singer was snapped getting epically emotional while attending the Nickelodeon event this past weekend, and we're thinking this very Taylor-esque reaction was made when Katy found out that she won the "Best Female Singer" award (beating out Taylor Swift... AWK-ward)! However, we'd prefer to imagine that Katy made this face because she and Selena were gossiping about ex-boyfriend horror stories to each other. BOYZ! Perhaps Katy was "Swift reacting" to the news about how Selena made Justin Bieber cry and it was SO unbelievably shocking that she couldn't keep a straight face! Ladies, LET US IN ON THE DISH!

Miley Cyrus dropped BIG news about new music on Ryan Seacrest's radio show. We DIE!
The most important part of this picture isn't that Miley Cyrus looks like a glammed-up porcelain doll, nor the fact that we really like Ryan Seacrest's tie/shirt combo. It's really all about how this photo is a visual celebration that Miley has officially announced her upcoming new single on Seacrest's show!! Oh, and did we mention that her new song is a collab with none other than SNOOP DOGG!? KAAAA-BOOM! (That's the sound of our minds/hearts/the internet exploding all at once.) Now, excuse us while we put on our very own unicorn onesie and TWERQUE our ish to "WOP" in celebration.
Ryan Seacrest shared Miley's celebratory moment on Instagram along with the caption "Just talked to Miley Cyrus... confirmed new music is on the way incl a song with @snoopdogg." Now we're left wondering if Miley's collabo will be similar to Katy Perry and Snoop's "California Gurls"? Orrr maybe it'll sound like nothing we've ever heard (like she said about her will.i.am track). And while we don' t know too many more deets about the new song, judging by Miley's "The One" finger, we can basically assume how her track will do on the charts. Hint: AMAZING.

Louis and Zayn of One Direction went paintballing with Australia's 5 Seconds Of Summer!
You might think that One Direction spend all their free time hanging out with their girlfriends and puppies, but sometimes the guys just want to take a break from all the cute stuff and GET ROUGH. And what better way to embrace your inner manly man than by playing paintball!? Better yet, how about instituting a total boy band battle: One Direction vs. 5 Seconds Of Summer! OK, technically we weren't there and can't prove that the two bands were actually pinned against each other, but let's just pretend that's how it went down and they were duking it out for our love. And that the winner would get our hand in marriage. (Welcome to our imaginations.)
The "One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks)" singers tweeted the photo of their paint-war moment along with the caption "Great day out today @5secsofsummer." While we're trying to erase the memory of that creepy "Predator" thing in the background, we're mostly trying to wrap our head around the fact that 1D is friends with the pop-punk Australian "Heartbreak Girl" singers (that's Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin, for all you newbies). Maybe this activity was like a business meeting to chat about a possible collabo?? (Business lunches are SO passé.) Most importantly, can y'all just imagine the guys rolling around on the ground and getting dirty while screaming in SUPER SEXY British AND Australian accents!?! WE SURRENDER!

Adam Lambert's too sexy for his pants!
If you were looking for a "Sultry Adam Lambert" update (which just so happens to be everything he does), we'd like to introduce you to this INCREDIBLY SEXY photo of a leather-clad Adam caressing himself on stage. It kinda reminded us of the time Rihanna grabbed herself while performing, except Adam kinda takes it to a whole new level. What makes Adam's moment superior? Well, because he is Adam EFFING Lambert, expert server of FACE, and he does everything better than ANYONE. Capiche?
This isn't the first time we've pointed out Adam's supreme sexiness -- his sexy stock shot through the roof when he successfully wore fringe and an absurdly blue suit, showed us his neck porn, took a bathroom selfie, and started a bad boy band. But everything, and we mean everything, has led up to this steamy-sexy Instagram photo of a slightly snarling Adam in all leather and rocking nail polish like a boss. (Btw, when is he dropping his own nail color line?! We are ready to invest!) But if you're a real Glambert, you aren't really admiring his outfit; you're probably imagining yourself as that microphone stand he's holding. Don't worry, it's entirely OK to be jealous of a piece of stage equipment! Where Adam's concerned, rabid fangirling is a GIVEN.

Austin Mahone played basketball sans shirt! We know, so many dreams coming true at once.
Remain calm, Mahomies! Wait, who are we kidding? GO AHEAD AND FLIP THE EFF OUT over Austin Mahone's newest shirtless photo!! And let us say it again, 'cause when it comes to buff bros, we like repeating ourselves. Austin's Justin Bieber workout/boot camp regimen IS TOTALLY WORKING. Oh, and in case you didn't know, Austin is one of MTV's Artists To Watch for 2013, and judging by this photo of him playing shirtless basketball, we're pretty sure keeping an eye on him won't be a problem.
Hot on the heels of playing MTV's Artist To Watch Showcase in NYC, the Lil Wayne impersonator recently took us on a romantic beach stroll in his "Heart In My Hand (Live On The Beach)" video, and now he's sharing a swoon-worthy photo on his Instagram, for which he captioned, "PLAYING BALL WITH CREW! and 2 sexy ladies (; hahahahaha @VEVO #VEVOLIFT). Now, if you're wondering if there will be any open auditions for (the imaginary, but real in our hearts) Mahonie cheerleader squad, the nice answer is: "Sure! The more the merrier!" But our REAL answer is "Get to the back of the line, 'cause we call dibs infinity." SO-REE! But we DOMINATE in anything with pom-poms.

Beyoncé reminds us that shopping for knockoff purchases is fun, and YOU SHOULD OWN THAT ISH.
Beyoncé may be our queen (Or king? We're still figuring that whole thing out), but just because she owns socks that cost more than our monthly rent doesn't mean she's not down to rifle through knockoff bags and sunglasses! Bey might make a billion-gazillion dollars an hour, but she's still a down-to-earth person who enjoys scoring a good deal. Oh, quit your triflin', everyone knows that a pair of "Raybrands" or a "Proda" clutch can look like the real thing in a pinch. Besides, if ANYONE in this world can make cheap goods look priceless, it's Beyoncé.
Leave it to the "Bow Down/I Been On" singer to confidently share her moment on Instagram, while most of us would probably NEVER admit to getting our fashion from a street vendor. Bey's smile is all: "LOOK AT ME! IDGAF what you think because A DIVA is the female version of a smart consumer who doesn't need to dent their bank account to werque name brands." Either that, or Beyoncé just stopped at this place to pick up a pack of gum while on her way to some swanky couture boutique that no "normal" person has ever heard of and most def will NEVER EVER be able to afford. Whatever, we want to believe the former.

Miley Cyrus' new song, Selena Gomez makes Justin Bieber cry, and more!
1.) SOUND THE "NEW MUSIC FROM MILEY CYRUS" ALARM (uh, whatever that sounds like): Miley has promised that a brand-new single called "Fall Down" will appear on will.i.am's forthcoming album! (Hollywood Life)
2.) During a recent "Late Show With David Letterman" appearance, Selena Gomez talked about her new single life, then jokingly admitted how she made Justin Bieber cry! "Spring Breakers," heartbreakers -- same diff. (MTV News)
3.) Lil Wayne's out of the hospital and feeling much better! He's recouping by watching tons of TV and tweeting love to his fans. That makes us feel better too, Weezy. (RapFix)
4.) One Direction's 3-D movie (that hits theaters Aug. 30!!!) has an official name: "This Is Us." Now, this is us freaking the eff out over this super exciting news! (MTV News)
Check out the rest of this week's 10 Things To Know Now after the jump!
Paramore's Hayley William's April 2013 Nylon cover will complete every coffee table. Or wall.
Paramore's Hayley Williams has been SUPER busy lately, what with dropping new tunes like "Still Into You," promoting a new album, and performing at SXSW. So of course it makes sense that she wouldn't have any energy left over to appear on a magazine cover. But we're talking about HAYLEY "NEVER FAILS AT FLAWLESS" WILLIAMS (not her official middle name... yet). Obviously she's gonna make time to DOMINATE the April 2013 issue of Nylon magazine!! And because she's such a great multi-tasker, she's also going to show us how to properly match one's orange lipstick with one's hair color. (Take notes, because this is what winning looks like.)
Instead of chatting about how she NEVER EVER TAKES A BAD PICTURE, the "Now" singer spent her Nylon interview discussing Paramore's short-lived falling out (it breaks our heart even typing that) and what it's like to be a girl in the music industry, saying, "Being on stage -- that sort of empowerment that you get is not male or female. It's just raw energy. I don't feel like I have to be sexy and a girl, or sexy in any way. I like to play hard, and I love to prove people wrong..."
Why aren't you applauding right now? You should be applauding.
+ Watch Paramore discuss their new album and staying grounded at the 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards:
