There are deeply inaccurate Beyoncé and Britney Spears wax figures living in Sydney, Australia.
We're all about artistic license around here, but we're not sure how to feel about these Beyoncé and Britney Spears wax figures in Sydney, Australia's airport. (Yup! That's who they're supposed to look like...) We've seen plenty of pop star wax statues in our day (remember Katy Perry's, Rihanna's, Selena Gomez's and Justin Bieber's?), so we're going to give our official artistic critique: WHAT. HAPPENED. HERE!?! Ummm... at least they got the MTV VMA trophy right!?
OK, maybe we're being a little hard on the artist who made these
brutal failures wax renditions. I mean, they were rendered for a good cause -- they're supposed to commemorate Australian Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. And wax can't be an easy medium to work with! Plus, we can only imagine the intense pressure the Madame Tussauds sculptor felt when forging two of the most FLAWLESS/EPIC/TALENTED women in the world. S/he was probably all, "Uhhh, you want me to do what... I'm not EFFING Michelangelo!" Let's just be real. If we saw these two statues chilling in an airport terminal, we'd be posing with them so hard, then Instagramming the ish out of the photos. We'd just use A TON of filters to fool everyone.

That's a lot of look, Justin.
We're usually so good at reacting to Justin Bieber photos. Our "ooos" (like, over his new Greek "Chi" tattoo) are flawless and our "awwws" (like, when we see pics of him sharing quality time with his siblings) are perfection. But we don't know WHAT noise to make at Justin's horrifying drop-crotch pants situation in the above photo snapped in London. (Maybe "blehhhhhhh"?) It kinda looks like if LMFAO, Lady Gaga, and MC Hammer's stylists got together to for a game of dress-up! Also, can someone explain to us why JUSTIN IS WEARING TWO WATCHES SIMULTANEOUSLY!? Ain't NOBODY got time for that! (Unless they're Rolexes, then we definitely got time for that.)

Beyoncé's headlines the V Festival, Harry Styles shares style tips, and Selena Gomez goes on spring break!
1.) Beyoncé's British #beyhive is abuzz over the news that the Pepsi pop art princess will headline the U.K.'s V Festival! Weird question, though -- do British bees' buzzing have an adorbz accent, too? J/K! (But no, really?) (Vibe)
2.) Remember how Daft Punk hinted that new music MIGHT be on its way via a cryptic helmet photo? Well, who knows WHAT they were really saying (being space robots and all), but now you can listen to a rare, unreleased seven-minute track from the techno masters from 1994. #Vintage (Pretty Much Amazing)
3.) One Direction's Harry Styles spilled some deets on his personal style and hair grooming tips. Heads up (like what we did there?): Following the bloke's daily routine does not guarantee instant heartthrob status, but it's def a good start. (MTV Style)
4.) We still have to wait until March 15 to see Selena Gomez in "Spring Breakers," but now you can check out some behind-the-scenes clips from the movie to hold you over 'til then. SPOILER ALERT: This movie looks SO DANG GOOD. (Hollywood Life)

Of COURSE Austin Mahone would look cute in a gigantic speed racing helmet!
We have no clue how Austin Mahone has the time to visit a racetrack between hitting the recording studio and touring, but we guess when you have all that heartthrob blood pumping through your veins, you GET THINGS DONE. And yes, Mahomies, we entirely agree that looking at photos of Austin's flawless face is TONS more fun than seeing it covered up in the above photo, but you must admit that seeing him in a waaay-too-big racing helmet still sends your heart zooming down the racetrack (see what we did there?). (And if it's still not working for you, here's a shirtless pic of Austin at the gym to hold you over. You're welcome.)
The "Say You're Just A Friend" singer shared the photo of his race day on Instagram along with the caption, "I'm ready to tear up the tracks!" You may also recall that another one of our fave singers (and Austin's idol!) Justin Bieber has a thing for getting down and dirty on four-wheelers. With this in mind, may we suggest a full-on race between the two hunks? It could tooootally be like "The Fast And The Furious!" Um... except, Austin just turned 16, and we don't want to risk him getting a speeding ticket or anything -- that ish stays on your driving record, like, forever! So maybe the bros should just duke it out on go-karts instead.

Jaden Smith rocks a frosted tip hairdo, and we're suddenly not sure what year it is!
The late '90s brought us a lot of things: Delias drawstring pants, butterfly hair clips, Britney Spears, boy bands, AND the infamous frosted tips hairstyle (we're looking at you Lance Bass, Nick Lachey, Joey Fatone, Justin Timberlake... and sooooo many more). Then, once the millennium hit, we thought (hoped, really) that the frosted tips look would disappear forever. But nope, Jaden Smith has officially resurrected the trend! Better yet, he knows how to do it right (aka not using your mom's leftover hair dye -- not that we know anything about that). Case in point: This recent photo of him in NYC rocking frosty tips like a BAWSSS.
The Smith clan member was snapped showing off his bi-colored locks while greeting fans in New York. But really, we're not TOO surprised that "The Coolest" singer would revive this look -- the 13-year-old is a MAY-JOR trendsetter. (You could even argue that Jaden's doing a male ombré dip-dyed thing. But that's another post for another time...) We're talking about a dude who can rock Russian-Arctic chic like NBD and has a VERY stylish family (hello, Willow Smith anyone?). Actually, we're starting to think Will and Jada must be feeding these kids big bowls of confidence for breakfast (which we imagine tastes like the S'mores Pop Tart flavor) instead of Wheaties. Because how often do teenage fashion choices actually end up being a GOOD idea?

Justin Bieber does a Michael Jackson crotch-grab while performing in Liverpool, England!
First and foremost, let's get all those LOLs out of the way right now. YES, Justin Bieber is grabbing his crotch like he needs to run to the bathroom. *Snickers* Now that we got the giggles out, let's look at this photo like mature adults (OK, LOLOLOL to that, too!) and recognize that Justin's actually doing the crotch grab/pose/dance move made famous by the late Michael Jackson! Well, kinda. Yo, Justin, Michael's routine only included ONE glove! Those glittery gold numbers are pretty and all (and are probably made with real 24K gold judging by your recent "moneymaker" status), but details are everything, bro.
The "Boyfriend" singer was snapped grabbing for... a high note while performing on his "Believe Tour" in Liverpool, England, this past weekend. Now, we all know that Justin has his own badass moves, but sometimes you just get so caught up in the moment that nothing feels more natural than defaulting to the ol' crotch grab (it's a classic!). And we don't blame him! You should see us when we get in our zone on the dance floor. Actually, never mind. We wouldn't want to take the spotlight off Justin with our patented Moonwalk-"Single Ladies"-"Gangnam Style" montage. (Hire us! We're available for bar mitzvahs AND quinceañeras.)

Adele's Oscar "derp" face beats every other "derp" face EVER.
While y'all are giggling over Jennifer Lawerence's slip up the stairs before accepting her Best Actress Oscar at the 85th Annual Academy Awards (you handled that fall like a PRO, Jen!), we're over here EXCLAIMING over the incredible "derp" face Adele pulled earlier on the red carpet. (In case you need a "derp" face refresher, please see Selena Gomez's take while getting her toes done). That's right, not only did the Grammy winner (and now Oscar winner for Best Original Song!) BRING DOWN THE EFFING HOUSE with her stellar "Skyfall" performance, she also did a pretty convincing portrayal of "the famous musician who just got a huge whiff of an A-lister's really bad cologne." Or maybe Kristin Chenoweth took her shoes off on the red carpet again. We'll never know.
The "Someone Like You" singer was snapped derping it up on the Oscar red carpet, simultaneously reminding us why we will adore her forever and beyond. Because while all those movie stars were posing for the camera, showing off their designer looks, and smizing within every inch of their lives, Adele was being adorable, rocking giant retro eyelashes, and -- WHOOPS! -- dropping an IDGAF "derp" like a boss. (We're sure it was a candid photo accident, but even when Adele's looking awkward, she's still the most endearing famous person we
stalk wish we knew.) Between this hilarz photo moment and that time Kelly Clarkson photobombed Ellen DeGeneres at the Grammys, we would officially give anything to become photo booth BFFs with these gals. Think of the potential faces!! (We're practicing our "derps" now.)

Demi Lovato rocks a walking cane to the Brit Awards after parties.
You might recall how Demi Lovato recently broke her leg after slipping on a newly polished floor (this is why nobody should actually do the Tom Cruise-"Risky Business" slide), but that hasn't stopped her from being her fabulous self! (Rise above, Demi!) First, she showed us that a bum leg won't prevent her from belting it out in the studio, and now, Demi rocked a walking cast AND cane while heading to some 2013 Brit Awards after-parties! We repeat: Demi ditched lame crutches and went out partying with a walking cane! #Impressive. Also, we're betting that walking canes will be the next big trend for 2014. Broken leg or no broken leg.
The "Heart Attack" singer was snapped heading to a Brit Awards after party, and while most people would've hobbled home, feeling all kinds of sadz that they had to miss out on all the after-hours events (like catching Taylor Swift and Frank Ocean dancing together), Demi was all "Um, nope. I'm gonna take my badass, cane-walking self and have a good time." Because that's what ridiculously talented pop stars do -- WHATEVER THE EFF THEY WANT. Now, please make ample room when you step aside, 'cause it's hard to stomp away to prove a point when you have a giant cast on your leg.

Beyoncé gets the pop art treatment for Pepsi!
What happens when the flawlessness of Beyoncé meets the artistic brilliance of Andy Warhol? You get THIS AH-MAZING pop art masterpiece! We already knew that Bey was Pepsi's official spokesperson (and got paid a pretty $50 million in the process), but no one told us that their advertisements were going to be the new focus decor in our house (once we find out how to get an actual print -- for now, screenshot it is). Also, does anyone else want to sign our petition to get this image hung next to the Mona Lisa at the Lourve?
The "I Was Here" singer shared the image on her Instagram, probably to remind us that she can not only look demure in black and white, but she can also ROCK Edie Sedgwick-influenced neon hair and blue eye shadow like a boss. And look at those adorbz facial expressions!! (Side note: We've seen that super cute fish face before, remember?!) Just to clarify: If B's "Life Is But A Dream" documentary didn't convince you that this woman should be immortalized as the QUEEN OF EVERYTHING, then this image should pretty much seal the deal. But seriously, how can we get a gigantic print to add to our very serious
Beyoncé Shrine art collection?

Miley Cyrus proves, yet again, that she is the master of the "side-tongue."
Not sure if y'all are aware, but we're serious side-eye connoisseurs up in here (See: this, this, and this). Now, Miley Cyrus has taken our favorite pastime to the next level with her incredible side-tongue. Actually, Miley's tongue makes A LOT of appearances (remember Borgore's "Decisions" video and when she met that fan in London?)! We're so confident about Miley's ability, we're just gonna put this out there: No one even try to compete with her side-tongue, because she will forever come out on top. And just so you're keeping track, Miley also wins world's cutest dog collection, best hair, best style, best fiancé, best song covers, and... well, BEST EVERYTHING. Basically, your new goal in life should be to become Miley Cyrus. Until then, BYEEE!
The "Who Owns My Heart" singer shared the photo on Twitter showing off not only her signature pose, but also a new accessory: a fly new "Devils" cap (Miley Cyrus = hockey fan?!). Judging by the photo's caption, "Swag courtesy of @MikeWiLLMadeIt," the hat is a gift from the scorching hot music producer, Mike WiLL Made It (hitmaker for Rihanna, 2 Chainz, and Kanye West, just to name a few). Now we're FLIPPING THE EFF OUT that another big-name producer is working with Miley on her forthcoming album, and that we've got even more proof that her tunes might go heavy on the hip-hop (remember her collabo with Pharrell Williams and Tyler, The Creator?!)! Guys, it's official, this record is going to be TURNT UP -- stick out your tongue if you agree!
