All hail Katy Perry, the Queen of everything!
We've been calling Katy Perry royalty for, like, EVER (#trendsetters), but it's looking pretty official now that she's sitting on HER OWN THRONE. OK, so technically Katy's just pretending to be royalty for the unveiling of her brand-new fragrance, Killer Queen, but don't act like pretending that beautiful pop stars rule our world isn't SUPER fun and wouldn't be a dream come true! (We already think she'd make a stellar president.) So, from now on, please call Katy "your highness" and KNEEL BEFORE HER.
The "Teenage Dream" singer was snapped sitting pretty at her fragrance launch event in New York City. WAIT! Here's an idea: What if we just created a real-life royal pop star court? Katy and Beyoncé could be queens together (obvs), Adam Lambert could be king (no contest), One Direction could be the princes (the more the marry-able), and Ke$ha could be the royal jester! (We mean that in a nice way, like how it's funny/weird that Ke$ha puts beards in her mouth.) We'd have NO problem being loyal subjects to that royal family.

One Direction's Harry Styles is ready to eat that chicken!
If anyone understands stress, it's One Direction's Harry Styles. In addition to maintaining his fabulous mop of curls, he has to show up onstage night after night to deliver perfect dancing, harmonizing, and (perhaps most important) kiss-blowing. We can only imagine how famished the 1D heartthrob would be after such grueling activity! So of course we're happy to see that Harry properly maintains his energy by healthy eating things ('cause if we were a famous pop star, we'd only eat cotton candy like Avril Lavigne). But Harry isn't going to settle for any lame lean chicken breast. Nope, he just EATS AN ENTIRE CHICKEN. Growing boys (with GIGANTIC boy band biceps) need their protein.
The "Kiss You" singer shared the photo of his after-show "snack" on Instagram along with the caption "Nothing like a good chicken chicken after a show.." You kinda have to love Harry's attitude: "I don't give a cluck what else is happening at this moment; all I want is this chicken in my belly!" Dude is looking at that fowl like, "Don't let me get in my zone!" But hey, we aren't gonna judge. At least Harry still looks super charming and totally zen right before feasting on an entire bird. Because if you placed a giant pizza in front of us, it wouldn't be as pretty.

Adele's getting a Madame Tussauds wax figure! And it's...kind of gross so far!
It was only a matter of time before Adele got her own Madame Tussauds wax figure (FINALLY, right?!), and now work has officially commenced on the Oscar/Grammy winner's upcoming masterpiece! And if you're wondering whether we got over our whole "creeped out by pop stars' clay heads" thing after seeing the early stages of One Direction's wax figures, the answer would still be a gigantic "NOPE." Call us crazy, but we prefer seeing pop stars' wax heads connected to their wax bodies. *Shudders*
The "Someone Like You" singer's wax figure is currently being built out of clay (they use the clay as a mold to pour the wax into -- the more you know!) by sculptor Louis Wiltshire, and will likely make its London debut in July. (Think they'll mimic her 2013 Oscars "Skyfall" look? We're just glad they didn't go with her "derp" face!) Well, judging by Adele's outstanding (if not a little frightening) wax head, we're totally sure that Louis will NAIL the rest of her look. We also think that these wax artists deserve a standing "O" for all their hard work -- we know how hard it is working with clay after taking one messy afternoon class at Color Me Mine, and it ain't that easy.

Katy Perry, Florence Welch, and Jessie Ware met at the "Great Gatsby" Prada party in New York City.
Please take the appropriate amount of time to "OMG" over the fact that these three incredibly talented women -- Katy Perry, Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine, and Jessie Ware -- were IN THE SAME ROOM TOGETHER AT THE SAME TIME! Thankfully we haven't died yet (except how we almost figuratively died over this photo), but we imagine this is the first thing you see when you get to heaven. We also imagine that after this photo was taken, the ladies exchanged phone numbers and email addresses, added each other on Facebook, and became instant BFFs and vintage shopping buddies. Then, they realized that three is an odd number and said something like, "We should get a fourth," thus inviting us into the fold BECAUSE THIS IS OUR IMAGINATION AND THIS IS HOW WE CHOOSE TO ENGAGE IT.
The three powerhouse singers were snapped attending Prada's "The Great Gatsby" party in New York City. We can't say for sure what happened after Jessie, Florence, and Katy met, but wouldn't it have been AMAZING if the girls busted out an a cappella version of one of the songs from "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack? Maybe Emeli Sandé's "Crazy In Love" cover or Beyoncé and Andre 3000's "Back To Black"? OK, clearly we're overwhelmed right now and the best way to calm us is to actually invite us to these types of parties so we don't lose our minds over thinking about what could have been. Can someone get us on the guest lists? Our sanity depends on it.

Rihanna throws some glamorous/terrifying side eye. BOW DOWN.
When Rihanna's not busy grabbing herself and constantly being naked, she's practicing the elusive technique of side eying --- and DOMINATES IT. Step aside, Nicki Minaj and Kanye West! Ri's teaching all y'all how to throw shade. We also already knew that Rihanna was THE EMPRESS of IDGAF, but the above photo is just a glamorously terrifying reminder that you best stay out of her personal space/comfort bubble while she uses the streets as her very own catwalk. OR SHE WILL CUT YOU. (Hey! The Wanted didn't write a song about "Walking Like Rihanna" because she stops for slow pedestrians, mmmkay?)
The "Stay" singer was snapped giving the "don't eff with me" side eye to end all side eyes while out in New York City. Honestly, it's not like we're so surprised at Rihanna's ability to confidently intimidate with her side eye -- we ARE talking about the woman who called an entire album Unapologetic. We just want to believe there's a softer side to Rihanna (we've seen some of it when she's around babies), but we're just too afraid to ask for more proof. *Backs away slowly*

Katy Perry pulls a tough-gal pose at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.
Katy Perry has been SO busy living her #bestlife this year! She's changed lives in Madagascar, hung out with some Smurfs, and now she's honoring an American hero by posing like a SERIOUS-FACE BAWSE at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. Seriously, don't mess with her! Plus, we gotta say it: Based on Katy's consistent awesomeness, she'd make a pretty badass leader, no? (Hey, she already knows the politician-posing-with-babies trick.) Katy Perry for president, 2020!
The "Part Of Me" singer shared the photo of her and Honest Abe on Twitter along with the caption "Sup?" while in town to attend the 2013 White House Correspondents' Dinner. Um, what's "Sup" is that while we are incredibly excited to hear Katy's upcoming third record, we reeeally can't stop thinking about how fun President Perry would be! Not only is she obvs the whole package of brains and leadership, just imagine how stunning our country's currency would be if her GORG face was printed on it! (Yes, we know that there's A LOT more to being president than being really pretty, talented, super nice, and a secret badass, BUT PLEASE JUST LET US DREAM.)

Adam Lambert's glam is so powerful that IT GLOWS.
If any of you Glamberts have wondered what it'd be like to spend an evening out with Adam Lambert (WE WONDER THIS EVERY SINGLE NIGHT), please enjoy this fantastic photo of Adam WERQUING some flashy heart-shaped glasses while out with his BFFs. Besides the obvious note that Adam looks good in any pair of shades, we've just been handed some breaking news: Adam's glam is so powerful that it glows! Those shades are pulsing at 100 Glam-a-Watts of pure sexiness! (Which is now officially a legit measurement of energy soon to be taught in every science class.)
The "Ray Of Light" singer shared his photo on Instagram with the caption "Back in Japan...," and we are IN LOVE with Adam's attempt at being goofy with that "Derp" face. (LOL! Nice try, Adam, but your "neck porn" and leather pants will forever outweigh any attempts at being dorky.) But we're mostly loving that our Prince of Glam never misses a chance to remind the world to have fun, be yourself, and to not give an EFF what anyone thinks. While some people hit up the club acting like VIP big deals, Adam ain't got time for that -- PUH-LEASE. Adam's all, "Haters can hate, but I'm ALWAYS gonna illuminate."

Austin Mahone and Selena Gomez hung out at the Radio Disney Music Awards!
It's probably safe to assume that Austin Mahone's "made it" now that he has a full-on record deal, spends Easter at the White House, and is BUFF TO THE MAX. But just in case you need more proof that Austin's DOMINATING AT LIFE, check out this photo of him hanging out with Selena Gomez at the Radio Disney Awards! And while we know that Austin's a bit young for Selena (he's 17, she's 20), you kind of have to admit that the two make a super cute couple! (Except none of that even matters because SELENA IS (probably) BACK WITH JUSTIN BIEBER!!!)
The "Heart In My Hand (Live On The Beach)" singer shared his Selena photo on Instagram this past weekend at the Radio Disney Music Awards along with the caption, "Just met @SelenaGomez she's an amazing artist! #fellowtexans." First, we'd just like to say "thank you" to Texas for giving us so much stellar pop star talent (Demi Lovato, Beyoncé, and the Jonas Brothers are also all from Texas). Second, we'd like to talk about how we'd like nothing more than a collabo between Selena and Austin -- both Austin and Selena have new albums on the way, so the timing couldn't be better! Dear Music Gods: PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

Talk about awkward: Selena Gomez saw Justin Bieber's face on her fan's T-shirt!
If you were planning to invite Selena Gomez over for some face painting, stuffed animal cuddling, and TOO MUCH CUTENESS TO HANDLE this weekend, then you're gonna have to get in line. Because it's these little girls' turn! But seriously, if you aren't exploding with too much "awww" from this photo, you might need to visit the doctor to check if your heart is still working. Also, how old is too old to get face paint? (We're asking for a friend.) Hey, if Demi Lovato and Walk The Moon can do it, so can we!
The "Come & Get It" singer shared the photo of her hanging out with two little fans on Twitter along with the caption "Spending time @VEVO with my littles." While we love seeing Selena hanging out with her youngest fans, we mostly can't stop LOL-ing at her reaction to that Justin Bieber T-shirt one of them is wearing! We still don't know WHAT the deal is with Selena and Justin right now (Is his new tattoo really of Selena?! Does that mean they're back together? WE NEED ANSWERS!), but judging by the look on her face, we're gonna have to say it was a teensy bit awkward seeing her maybe/maybe not ex-boyfriend's face plastered on a little girl. Because try to imagine if you saw little kids wearing T-shirts with YOUR ex plastered all over them. Actually, don't even try to imagine that -- IT'S TOO TERRIFYING.

Harry Styles takes time from his hectic life to smell the flowers... kinda.
When you're SUPER busy like Harry Styles with all that One Direction fame, it's important to stop sometimes and, as they say, smell the flowers. Except, um, we're not really sure Harry knows how to smell the flowers judging by this photo! Harry, you're supposed to sniff the top part, not the stem! J/K! We're sure Harry knows how to properly smell flowers, we're just making a joke to cover up the fact that it's BREAKING our hearts that it's not us he's holding that close to his face. Why are we so transparent?
The "Kiss You" singer was snapped holding the red plant (er, sorry for the lack of botanical knowledge) while in Los Angeles where -- brace yourselves for this rumor, 1D-ers -- he was having dinner with two potential love interests: Rod Stewart's daughters Ruby and Kimberly. Yes, we said "two." SOOO, maybe Harry's acting out his own personal version of "The Bachelor" and this is his version of the rose ceremony!?! BUT, to keep from bursting into tears over the news of this budding relationship, we're just gonna keep on pretending he was going to hand the flower to us. (We might also watch too much reality TV.)
