In what universe is it fair that Jennifer Lopez looks hotter than most women half her age? Not this one, but that's still the case. J. Lo scored a spread in the upcoming issue of Vogue showing off some killer bathing suits -- and whaddya know, just in time for bikini season! (Which is also known as "I will murder you if you put a delicious-looking carb in my vicinity" season. It's a dangerous couple of months.)
Here's what we're thinking -- since Jennifer Lopez is on the fence about returning as a judge on the next season of "American Idol," she can just quit her day job and become a swimsuit model. We don't know about you guys, but her photos in the Vogue spread are seriously not even heavily Photoshopped! Photoshopped a little, of course. But we can still see like, veins and other signs of human life on her body, meaning the woman is probably close to being this flawless. Ugh -- this marks the second time today that I wished that youth serum from "Death Becomes Her" was real.

Nick Jonas looks hella good on that bass.
We love how humble Nick Jonas is. Even though this is like, the hottest photo of him ever taken, homeboy didn't upload it to Twitter himself -- he had his brother Joe do it. With the Jo Bros back in the studio working on a new record (!!!), we're sure plenty of photos like this one are being taken on an hourly basis. And raise your hand if you're totally OK with seeing each and every one of them...
Joe uploaded this photo of his little bro during their studio session to Twitter yesterday, tweeting, "Nick J slapping Da bass." While "Da" probably shouldn't have been capitalized, we're not here to nitpick: We're here to stare openmouthed at the wonder and glory that is (totally legal) Nick Jonas. Even though he won't be our neighbor anymore as his stint in "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" is coming to an end, we continue to thank the internet gods (Al Gore?) for the ability to still see him on a semi-regular basis. Oh, we thank Joe, too. Keep 'em coming, broseph.

Attention Glamberts! If we can just tear you away from your repeat listening of Adam Lambert's brand-spankin'-new Trespassing album (that dropped today), we'd like to show you some Adam Lambert photos! (I know. Feel free to address thank-you cards to MTV HQ). In celebration of THE MOST-ANTICIPATED ALBUM OF 2012 (too much?), we combed our archives to bring you some classic Lambert shots -- we went all the way back to his "American Idol" days in 2009 and continued through his evolution into 2012. Now we feel like we know him better than he knows himself.
Go back in time with us as we explore the many hairstyles of Adam Lambert, as well as the pristine forms of facial hair he's sported over the years (á la the photo above from last year). You'll laugh you'll cry, and you'll grab your crotch in camaraderie! Check out Buzzworthy's BEST OF ADAM LAMBERT PHOTO GALLERY, and peep more of our faves after the jump.
Carly Rae Jepsen shares 10 things she's obsessed with. We co-sign on all of them.
It seemed only natural that when Carly Rae Jepsen stopped by MTV recently, we HAD to ask her which 10 things she is obsessed with right now. Because, duhhhh -- we've been obsessed with "Call Me Maybe" for 1 million years. The adorable Canadian was kind enough to share some of her current obsessions with us, and basically we love all of the same things and should be BFFs forever. ESPECIALLY if she'll let me borrow that broach she's wearing. UH-mazing.
Guess what: Carly's part of the Robyn fan club, y'all! Her first obsessions is "Call Your Girlfriend," both the song and the video. (We couldn't get her to reenact it like "SNL"'s Taran Killam, though.) Carly goes on to share more of-the-moment faves: her favorite YouTube video, her favorite accessories, and of course, Ryan Gosling. On her Gos obsesh, Carly gushes, "I'm OBSESSED with Ryan Gosling. Not in like, the creepy way, I hope. Just in like, a healthy way... I'm obsessed with him in a completely normal way." Us too, girl. Us too. (100 percent sarcasm.)

L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell and Britney Spears -- your new 'X Factor' judges!
Uh. Muh. God. Let's talk about this, shall we? Where do we even start?! Even though it was basically official (and the worst-kept secret ever), we recently told you that Britney Spears was set to join the judges panel on the new season of "The X Factor." And just yesterday, we let you know about Demi Lovato joining that same group of judges (!!!). But the proof is in the pudding (or the Getty photo) -- the newest lineup of judges became OFFICIAL yesterday when both Brit and Demi were on hand for Fox's announcement of the show. We. Cannot.
First of all, who do we start talking about first -- Demi and Brit look equally amazing/flawless/stunning that we don't want to start talking about one without mentioning the other at the same time. Second, can you guys even wait for this show? I'm like, thinking of growing a playoff beard until the show starts and I'm a woman. Finally, Simon's pointy toe shoes -- now you cannot unsee them.

Is life on the road with Outasight as rad as it seems it might be? Answer: totally. The "Tonight Is The Night" singer hit the road with Dev in March and is currently finishing out the rest of his North American tour. And yay, we scored some exclusive, behind-the-scenes video and photos! It's basically exactly how you think life on the road might be with one of our favorite PUSH alums: hella fun, and with artsy photography. The video and photos are from Outasight's first stop in NYC earlier this year -- he's pumped, his crew is pumped, and homeboy's looking so fresh and so clean.
In his own words, Outasight let us in on what goes down when he hits the road:
Before a show I find the best way to prepare is to go about my day as is and keep things really loose. I hang out with my crew, crack jokes, maybe have a drink, watch the Knicks on my DJ's laptop (if they're on), and really just keep things light. When I get on stage I want the crowd to have as much fun as I am, so it's all about keeping the mood up and not trying to overthink it. Right before I step on stage I feel that nervous energy come on so I'll use that get amped cause once I step on that stage it's the most natural feeling to me.

Lady Gaga dons an updated version of her 2009 meat dress on the Born This Way Ball in Tokyo.
Oh, Lady Gaga, we've missed you. Since she's been prepping for her overseas leg of her Born This Way Ball, it seems like things have been fairly quiet on the Gaga front (save for that little tweet she sent about not eating -- we still aren't so happy about that). But it looks like she's got her appetite back. The "Marry The Night" singer recently posted a photo to Facebook of her sporting a new, sexier version of that infamous meat dress from the 2010 VMAs, and we love it. Also, did you ever think you'd read a sentence containing the words "new, sexier meat dress"?
Famed photog and Gaga pal Terry Richardson snapped the stunning shot of Lady Gaga during her performance of "Americano" during the Born This Way Ball in Tokyo. The singer's featured in the middle of the stage dressed in her finest beef, flanked by two cow carcasses. Nothing says "This is how we do things in America" like a couple of slaughtered animals. We repeat: We've missed you, Lady Gaga!

T. Mills (aka Travis Tatum Mills) started making music like any other millennial from SoCal might -- in his bedroom on his laptop. But T. was able to turn his little hobby into a real deal record contract in just about two years. "I made a Myspace page and I put some pictures up, and kids just started finding my page," Mills says about being discovered. But it's not like it just fell into this lap -- he worked hard for his fanbase. "I would literally spend eight to nine hours a day on my computer, adding kids and talking to my fans." After heading out on the road and scoring a coveted spot on 2009's Warped Tour, T. eventually inked a deal with Columbia in 2011. Boom. Time to get famous.
T.'s probably most known for his to-the-point track, "Vans On," which tactfully informs women that he will, when asked politely, "love" them with his Vans on (!!!). But there's much more to learn about the Cali rapper than his bedroom style. Check out our exclusive video interviews with Mills where he opens up about his Leaving Home EP, his unexpected fanbase and being the subject of various tattoo art: "It's just crazy to me that someone would want my name on their body for the rest of their life... And sometimes I'm like, 'Yo, when you get married, what's your husband gonna say?'" That's a ton of tat insight, especially coming from someone who has a "F*** The Haters" tattoo on his face. As for what fans can look forward to from T. on his upcoming debut album, Mills is moving on up. "I feel like every body of work I put out, it just keeps on improving... I try to take full advantage of the recording process and just improve. I feel like when you get comfortable that's when things kinda stay still." Damn. T. Mills should make e-cards.

If you guys haven't heard by now, the "Teen Wolf" Season 2 trailer is streaming, and it's pretty intense. There's like, blood and supernatural stuff everywhere. There's even interpersonal relationship drama -- the scariest part!
But the best part might not be in the trailer -- we're actually obsessed with the cool-creepy song that's in this "Teen Wolf" Season 2 behind-the-scenes video. It's titled "Walls," by Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist Night Shining, who self-produces, records, performs and writes all of his own stuff. His eerie blend of electronic and acoustic elements make for the perfect backdrop for a show like "Teen Wolf." And also, your iPod! Yay, free music!
+ Download a free copy of Night Shining's "Walls," and check out the "Teen Wolf" Season 2 behind-the-scenes video and "Teen Wolf" Season 2 trailer after the jump. With 5 million views of the trailer, the first 10 minutes of Season 2 will be unlocked. Get to clickin'!
I was already super pumped for Azealia Banks' upcoming mixtape "Fantastic," but now that "Jumanji" has dropped, I've officially set a calendar reminder. That's right, Azealia, your mixtape release is all up in my Outlook (which is just set for "summer" right now because don't have an offish date yet). Still, big deal status.
Let's talk about the "Jumanji" beat, guys: f***ing bananas. Banks teamed up with Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke and Brooklyn house DJ Nick Hook for the track, and the result is a hyped-up tropical explosion that we've listened to about seven times already. Azealia gets grimy over steel drums as she waxes philosophical about her newfound wealth. All her vehicles are handsome, in case you were wondering.
Banks isn't as in-your-face lyrically with this one as she was in "212," perhaps, but she's still spitting enough street cred to scare most of the ish out of you. Basically, "Jumanji" sounds like you're in line at Rainforest Cafe, but like, the baddest b**** in the game is your waitress. We dig it. Hard.
