Three cheers for Lana Del Rey's glam take on sports fan-chic!
Normally we're like ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ sports, but we just now realized that what sports was missing and sorely needed was more Lana Del Rey, who demonstrated that you don't have to wear oversize coats with a logo orrr even a giant spongy block of cheese on your head (we're looking at you, Wisconsin) to express your team spirit (whatever that is -- again, sports = not really our thing unless you consider Britney Spears trivia a sport, and we certainly do.) You can show your team spirit by pairing a cute sports logo scarf with a fancy coat and still make a very valid (yet fashionable) point! Now, avid sports fans, PLEASE consider Lana's lesson the next time you and your BFFs think it's a good idea to take your shirt off with "W-I-N" painted on your chests -- pretty please?
The "Burning Desire" singer was snapped sartorially rooting for Liverpool F.C. (that stands for "Football Club," for those of us Stateside) against Tottenham Hotspur while leaving Anfield Stadium in the U.K. (yeah, we didn't quite understand that either). And to top it all off, Lana's team won 3-2, but we think the real winner is Lana and her super-classy sports fan style. Oh, and we're in total awe of Lana's wearing skinny jeans to a sporting event where so much junk food is available, 'cause if that were us, we'd be wearing our "gonna shove our faces with so much nacho cheese" pants. #NoShame

Austin Mahone DOMINATES with his Lil Wayne impression!
You know what they say: "You gotta dress like a bawsss to BE a bawsss." OK, no one has ever said that, but maybe Austin Mahone is onto something by wearing a shirt from Lil Wayne's Trukfit Spring 2013 clothing line. Look at him NAILING Lil Wayne's tongue face! Now all Austin needs are some sunglasses, a diamond-encrusted grill, and a bazillion-gazillion face tattoos. Actually, we'd prefer it if Austin just drew some fake tats with a marker -- nothing against tattoos, but it's just as baller-esque without, you know, BEING PERMANENT.
The "Harlem Shake" pro shared his fashion moment on Instagram along with the caption, "Anyone like my shirt?!?" And while the Mahomies of the world are all responding "OBVS" in unison, we think Austin should have rephrased the question to say, "Do you like me wearing this very colorful and fashionable shirt designed by a hip-hop master? Orrr should my new wardrobe just be me constantly shirtless?" The answer: DUH. Austin always shirtless. Pretty sure we all could learn "How To Love" that. (Yup, totally just went there.)

Britney Spears shows off her latest alias: "brunette shopping in L.A."
Maybe we've been watching too many "Alias" reruns (damn you, Netflix!!), but is anyone else getting a whole Sydney Bristow/incognito vibe from Britney Spears lately? First, she debuted her new brunette look at Elton John's Oscar viewing party (HELLO, Sydney's hair color!), and she's been playing around with different accents (like that British sing-speak thing she does in "Scream & Shout"). Maybe Britney's posing as a SUPER FAMOUS pop star mom to cover up her double life in the FBI/CIA? Orrr maybe she's still reacting to her breakup with ex-fiancé Jason Trawick? Either way, Brit wins. End of story. (Even if we're partial to our secret agent story.)
The "Criminal" singer was snapped working her new brunette look while shopping in Los Angeles. Can we just say how much we love that Brit's embracing her new single life?? First, she gets a cute new puppy, then a the new hair 'do, and now she's even got a promising new album in the works! But most importantly, without a boyfriend, Brit has wayyy more time to do all her secret agent stuff. (Sorry guys, not gonna let this alias thing go anytime soon.)

Adam Lambert and friend/dancer Terrance Spencer snap some bathroom selfies!
Working for Adam Lambert has to be the best job EVAR! And judging by this photo collage Adam snapped alongside his co-worker/dancer/friend Terrance Spencer, "overtime" means taking selfies in the bathroom TOGETHER! Also, we can tell from this pic that Adam's job description includes dominating fashion (like with blue suits) and maintaining flawless smizes with proper eyeliner application at all times. Now, excuse me while we tweak our résumé to apply to be a full-time Glambert. (Adam! HIRE US! We will work for FREE.)
The "Stay" singer shared his photo on Instagram along with the caption, "Late night shenanigans w @terrancespencer." Adam's been on tour in Asia for the last few weeks, and while he's been out catching the sights, sometimes simply taking bathroom mirror pictures is the best way to unwind after a long day of being consistently epic. That, and bathing in that rock star-looking tub in the background. Wait! Maybe Adam could use an official bath drawer -- we'll SO do it! Kinda weird? Sure. But don't act like it's not your official new dream job, too. Forwarding our résumé right now.

One Direction's Niall Horan shows off his (very muscular) sideboob!
To all y'all who thought that sideboob was for ladies only, check out this photo of One Direction's Niall Horan serving some stellar SB! (That's the new sideboob acronym we're starting. Tell all your friends.) Niall's visible pecs only prove that side boob is a phenomenon both men and women can enjoy, and it also allows us to announce the (unofficial) royal court of sideboob: Miley Cyrus is queen and Niall is king (although maybe Miley would prefer Harry Styles?). Now, please pay your respects by wearing your own slightly revealing sleeveless shirt.
The "One Way Or Another" singer was snapped showing off his SB (See? It's so catchy!) in Dublin as he arrived to One Direction's concert. While some of you might be ecstatic that the chest-exposing trend is getting more gender-neutral, and you have every intention of referencing it in your next Gender Studies 101 paper, we imagine that the majority of you are feeling SUPER sad the Comic Relief spokesperson didn't just go shirtless and be done with it! Lucky for you, we searched through our archives to find this photo of Niall shirtless to tide you over! See? Research can be fun!

A$AP Rocky wants to be MTV's "Hottest MC," Taylor Swift fears being cliché, and more!
1.) A$AP Rocky isn't digging his No. 8 spot on MTV's "Hottest MCs in the Game VIII" list. He even called in to L.A.'s Power 106 to vent on how he should have been No. 1. We don't know what to say, Rocky... maybe next year? (MTV News)
2.) Taylor Swift opened up to U.K.'s InStyle magazine to discuss (in great detail) how she refuses to end up like a sad Hollywood cliché, all lonely and depressed. Anyone else hear potential lyrics for another hit in the making? (MTV News)
3.) Check out the ADORBZ little outfits Nicki Minaj designed for her Pink Friday perfume bottle! And yes, this bottle has better style than most real-life humans ever will. (MTV Style)
4.) Today in Justin Timberlake world domination news, the "Mirrors" singer could be a last-minute SXSW addition along with Dave Grohl and Iggy Pop! (SPIN)

Austin Mahone shows us exactly what a tough heartthrob should look like.
Is it us or does Austin Mahone look like he's getting more ripped by the week? It's like he's doing some rare fitness routine (probably a workout craze that only celebrities know about). Orrr maybe he's on a special Justin Bieber bicep regimen! Can everyone just imagine if Austin and Justin did a fitness DVD series collabo together? Watching the two of them sweat it out would SO get our heart rates pumping... and would finally give us a good reason to get rid of our Tae Bo VHS tapes.
The "Say You're Just A Friend" singer shared his tough guy photo on Instagram along with the caption "I actually work security now." LOL, Austin, we're pretty sure you can't be your own security guard, because you're supposed to be SUPER busy working on new songs in the studio, AND (most importantly) we just can't risk your flawless face getting hurt while defending yourself from a gazillion fans. But don't think we haven't noticed Austin's new testosterone-friendly look: First he's a speed racer, now a bouncer... what's next? We're guessing gladiator. Annnd, we're just gonna let all you Mahomies think about that for a while.

Adam Lambert rocks a crazy bright blue suit in Shanghai!
Saying that Adam Lambert isn't fashion-forward is like saying that puppies, kittens, and babies in sunglasses aren't cute -- it's just UNTRUE. That's why we are LIVING for this bright blue suit Adam wore on stage while performing in Shanghai. (Just throw in an oversized collar, bell-bottoms, and a mustache, and he'd be in full '70s throwback mode -- or would that be powder blue? Maybe this is more '80s.) You may also notice how Adam's suit resembles what John Mayer wore to the Grammys! We'd like to imagine that Adam saw John at the Grammys and was all, "Yo, Mayer, I see your blue jacket... and I raise you an entire suit in a bolder hue. I win. Bye." And then, we'd like to imagine that John bowed down because, um, it's Adam Lambert and you bow down to Adam whenever he speaks.
The "Stay" singer has performed in all kinds of dark and fringy outfits while on tour in Asia, but this time Adam showed off this buh-RITE ensemble while on stage in Shanghai. Actually, judging by this photo, it also seems like he's also serving some serious Glam Angles while performing (btw, real Glamberts know that a Glam Angle is any flawless angle Adam gives us in a photo). Now, excuse us while we hunt down every Crayola or Benjamin Moore contact we can find, then DEMAND there be a new color added to the collection called Glambert Blue.

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.)
