Oh, you know. Just Katy Perry with a crab hanging off her lip. WAIT. WHAT?!?!?!??
THIS IS SO WEEEIRD! Just the other day we were thinking about taking a selfie with a crab chilling on our lip, but then Katy Perry beat us to it. UGH! I guess I'm moving to plan B: Anybody got a giant shark I can borrow? (A sea creature hanging from your mouth is the new duckface. #GetWithIt)
The "Unconditionally" singer shared the pic of her "hanging" out with a crustacean on Twitter with the caption, "Sometimes I can get a little crabby." Um, real talk: We don't think it's physically possible for Katy Perry to get grumpy -- she's way too puuurrrrfect.
Anyway, we just hope that Katy's got this crab situation on lock before she performs at the 2013 MTV EMA in Amsterdam this Sunday night (!!). Actually, you know what -- NO! Maybe she should do what Lady Gaga does and proudly rock a "WUT THE WUT??" costume onstage. Like, she could perform a Prism track with some sea life hanging off her face! C'monnnn, it's #FashionFoward!
BTW, is anyone else suddenly craving a meal at Red Lobster?

If it's beauty sleep Ari's after, though, she won't have to rest long...
Only three nights of sleep remain until the 2013 MTV EMA airs, and Ariana Grande is doing what any responsible backstage host would do: get in as many kitty catnaps as she possibly can before the big night! Oh wait, did we say "kitty catnaps"? We meant "perfect Disney princess flawless nap realness yaaaaaaaaaaaasss."
The EMA nominee for Artist On The Rise shared her sleeping selfie on Instagram along with a very thorough caption: "Beyond exhausted after a full hour day of press and interviews in Paris. I love this city so much. Off to London tonight. Hope everybody's had a good day. p.s. I look sad but I'm not, just sleepy." Translation: Ariana's just resting her eyes before she clues us in on EVERYTHING happening backstage in Amsterdam on Sunday, so please, guys, no narcolepsy rumors. Thanks.
Actually, let's all take a page out of the "Right There" singer's playbook and snatch as many Zs as we can so we're all perky for the big EMA broadcast on Nov. 10! See you in a few days, K? Night! *turns out light* *spoons anatomically correct Harry Styles cardboard cutout*

PUHHH-RAISE!!!! Austin is back in the recording studio!
Start sending your thank-you notes and gifts of undying gratitude to our Times Square offices now, because we're pretty sure that WE (or at least Austin Mahone's 2013 MTV EMA nomination for Artist On The Rise) are the reason he's back in the studio recording more jams! Just please, don't send balloons -- it breaks out hearts to watch them deflate.
OK, sure, maybe the "Banga Banga" singer was already planning on hitting the studio because, you know, it's his job. But the caption to this photo Austin posted on Instagram kinda hints that we played some part in it: "I'M NOMINATED FOR ARTIST ON THE RISE @MTV #EMA!! Post a pic and tag with #voteaustinmahone to vote now!!" Did you read that? He mentioned our name -- OUR NAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Please just let us have this one moment. It clearly means the world to us. Thx.)
Oh, and if the "What About Love" singer wins either of his EMA categories (Artist On The Rise, Best Push) during this Sunday's ceremony, you're obvs more than welcome to send us more thank-you gifts. Actually, you can just send us stuff anytime you want. (We really love cookies.)

Taylor may have taken the most selfless selfie we've ever seen!
Shocking nobody, Taylor Swift has elevated the selfie arts to a level previously believed to be impossible. The "Sweeter Than Fiction" singer somehow managed to leap past the whole "selfies are sooooooo self-indulgent" stigma by taking them with her fans! It's a communal selfie! Now that's what we call
Ugh, so effing jealz about this lucky fan's photographic memento capturing the time she momentarily nuzzled cheeks with Taylor. If it were our picture, we'd either encase it in bulletproof glass, or alter our family crest so that this glorious moment would now be at its center -- or both. But hey, it's not our picture. #TheLoudestPouts
Seen here at BBC Radio 1's Teen Awards on Sunday night, Taylor Swift once again proves that her flawlessness reaches mind-boggling heights! More perplexing, however, is the fact that she was photographed photographing herself. Buh, maybe we're not quite mentally ready for #MetaMonday yet.
Anyway, the noted cat enthusiast didn't simply look like a winner last night; her song "I Knew You Were Trouble" took home the YouTube Phenomenon honor at the inaugural YouTube Music Awards! Talk about Tay's total transatlantic domination! No, seriously, please talk about it. We're not ready to stop talking about how much we worship Taylor Swift. Please...?

Ariana's sexy kitten costume is the end-all, be-all of sexy kitten costumes. BAI!
Here's a good rule of thumb: Please don't dress up like a sexy kitten UNLESS YOU ARE ARIANA GRANDE! (Exception: Katy Perry with her cat ears. We see you, boo!)
As proven by this photo that the "Right There" singer posted on Instagram, the world's most adorable pop star totally gets away with it because she can somehow werk knee-high socks with little bows on 'em like it's her job. Full-time. Paid vacation. With benefits. 401K. Matching. BAM!
Even more, we love that Ariana was self-aware enough to caption the photo: "...this was my 'stereotypical 20 year old girl in thigh highs and animal ears' costume. Hope y'all had a great 1." Hmmm, does this suggest that she is perhaps serving us a costume within a costume -- a costume-ception, if you will? #meta

Our pop princess, Britney Spears, went full-on Disney princess for Halloween!
Now that it's November, we know we should be focused on counting down the days until we can stuff our faces with Thanksgiving deliciousness. But, them calorie drools can wait 'cause EVERYONE needs to admire Britney Spears and her backup dancers' EPIC Halloween costumes as Walt Disney's "Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs"!
No doubt paying homage to the "Brady Bunch" 3x3 grid with the Instagram photo's arrangement, this fairy tale princessery in the first degree clearly wins at Halloween, not to mention the imaginary costume contest that I just set up in my head. Here, Brit-Brit and the gang, collect your prize: a Ziploc bag of loose candy corn that I handpicked and individually butterfly-kissed myself. You're welcome!

Kitten-eared Katy is almost too cute to handle.
We worried that Katy Perry's emerging dark side was gonna force her to retire those cutesier "Kitty Purry" aspects of her purrsona. Thankfully, if this photo of the "Unconditionally" singer wearing cat ears at a Tokyo airport is any indication, we were mhissstaken! Is there anything on this planet as cute as Katy in cat ears -- including actual cats with actual cat ears? OK, fine, cats win! What, we're just kitten around, guys! #CatPunsFOREVER
Not only is Katy a master at Billboard 200 chart domination, but she also knows how to travel in style. (We hope those feline fashionables are TSA-approved!) But that's not all! Purrhaps (OK, done now) the most amazing thing about this picture is that Katy's managed to tackle two holidays with one simple furry accessory -- National Cat Day AND Halloween! #MultitaskingFTW
That's right, even halfway around the world, Ms. Perry still manages to honor one America's most hallowed of days -- we're obviously talking about National Cat Day. THERE IS A HOLIDAY THAT NOW CELEBRATES CATS FOR AN ENTIRE DAY. Can you tell we really like cats? Cats. Thank you, America.

Are Austin Mahone and Selena Gomez still BFFs? Um, YUP.
Do you think Austin Mahone and Selena Gomez made their BFF status official with heart-shaped charms, handmade bracelets, and their own top-secret, special language? 'Cause this new pic from Austin's Instagram of the two having some serious bonding time is just TOO CUTE FOR WORDS. Also: Please excuse me while I file this under "I Want Austin's Life."
What are we even talking about? Well, the MTV "Artist To Watch" Tour headliner doesn't really need any friendship tokens when Selena could easily give him something waaay better than a cheap metal charm from a mall jewelry kiosk. Like what? Ummmm, how about an all-access backstage pass to her "Stars Dance" concert?
During his backstage visit, the "What About Love" singer even gave Selena a supportive shout-out in the pic's caption: "Amazing job tonight! @SelenaGomez good seeing you " Because that is what you do on Instagram: Shower your talented and beautiful friends with love and support. And what you don't do, however, is post a picture of your BFF napping in a position that exposes his double chin and drool. Like someone I know did to me. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

REJOICE, for Rihanna's IDGAF side eye makes another appearance!
You know what's really hard to do? Giving a side eye that is neither catty nor bratty and instead offers elegance for days -- a skill that Rihanna has clearly mastered based on the above photo. Kindly #BowDown to the side eye KWEEN? Thx.
Breaking from the Caribbean leg of her "Diamonds" World Tour in the Dominican Republic, Rihanna took a moment to show the world that throwing shade can be as refined and graceful as sipping from a glass with your pinky up -- or casually ignoring the nearest "NO SMOKING!" sign in your vicinity like a high-society BAWSE.
Y'all think that's what "The Monster" singer is flashing her famed side eye at? Or, maybe she was stealthily eyeing Snoop Dogg, who was hanging out with RiRi just out of frame? Naw, there's no way that she'd be able to see him through all that smoke -- er, because they'd just blown out the candles on their National Cat Day cake! Yes, that's it! That's a thing that is real.

We've always wished that Adam would be a genie for Halloween! #FlawlessWordplay
Generally speaking, we'd be wary of anything Adam Lambert might wear that could alter his flawlessness beyond recognition, but we'll make an exception when it's Halloween. Why? Because the "Let's Dance" singer doesn't just toss on a mask or slip on a "Sexy Hulk Hogan" costume. Instead, he DOMINATES the holiday with two EPICALLY spooky looks.
For example, check out the above photo Adam posted on Instagram, which depicts the "Lay Me Down" singer dressed up as a genie at an L.A. event on Friday. Don't the aqua-colored face paint and full-body bedazzling only increase Adam's heart-stopping red carpet grin? Yes. The answer is yes. (Sidenote: Anybody else getting a major Jambi from "Pee-wee's Playhouse" vibe from this pic? #MeccaLeccaHiMeccaHineyHo)
