I think it's safe to say it's not "Friday" anymore, guys. Rebecca Black's infamous music video that garnered her about a bajillion views (and several hundred thousand "dislikes") was released over a year ago, and the adorable singer is putting the past behind her and moving forward with her life. Rebecca's back with her latest single, "Sing It," and there are very few things to hate about it! I'm not kidding! Progress!

Ladies and gentlemen, THIS is how you wear a tux.
We know that everyone is losing their collective ish over Beyonce's see-through dress at the Met Gala last night (let us remind you she JUST had Blue Ivy), but we would also like you to consider how effing dapper the Jonas Brothers looked. Hot damn, boys. You three look like a beautifully painted landscape of shiny tuxes and perfect manbrows. Wear this every day! Also, if all my girlfriends are not yet on the Nick Jonas train, allow this photo to guide you into the station. I will go on record saying he's my all-time favorite Jonas. I said it! COME AT ME, HATERS.
We're glad to see the Bros weren't hurting too bad after they lost MTV's Battle Of The Boy Bands to Westlife yesterday. We ask you -- was Westlife anywhere to be found at the Met Gala last night? Just some food for thought.

Karmin trying to get spooky in their latest video "Told You So" is kind of like your eight-year-old cousin putting on his Freddie Krueger Halloween costume -- it's just really adorable! Engaged duo (and our PUSH artist of the week) Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan take us to the looney bin in their new video for their most recent single, but you won't exactly need to sleep with the lights on when it's over. They can out-cute their way out of any scary situation!

Robert Downey Jr.'s son Indio Falconer (center) is in a band. We love this idea.
Here's a thing we like: Robert Downey Jr., total babe-status dad, has a son who's in a band. It gets better: He's cute, and his name is Indio Falconer Downey. (I said INDIO FALCONER DOWNEY.) It gets even better: His band, The Seems, released their debut single. The title? "Buysexual." (It's actually really rad Strokes-y stuff.) Um, you're welcome for the best news of your week.
The Seems have been gallivanting around L.A. lately playing their tunes and taking meetings with record companies. The band recently played a show at L.A.'s famed Viper Room, and they're reportedly inking a deal with Warner Bros., which means we'll probably be hearing a lot more of these guys in the future. (Because record companies have money to promote bands and stuff.) This also means we'll get to say the name INDIO FALCONER DOWNEY several more times when referring to this band, and that is something that pleases us to no end.
Check out The Seems' "Buysexual," and say the name INDIO FALCONER DOWNEY over and over until you can't any longer.

MGK gets deep in his latest video "Chasing Pavements."
It's official: Everyone loves Adele. Even Machine Gun Kelly. The "Wild Boy" takes some times to contemplate his rise to fame in his latest video "Chasing Pavements," featuring a sped-up sample of the 2008 Adele track of the same name. We love when rappers get deep.

What a roller coaster MTV's Battle Of The Boy Bands has been! When we first announced the tourney a mere two weeks ago, we never would have suspected to have shed so many tears (and revisited so much of our buried tumultuous, adolescent emotions). We made it through the shocking *NSYNC/Backstreet Boys eliminations as well as the bittersweet farewell to the likes of One Direction, 5ive and Big Time Rush when we got down to the Final 4. And now that all the ballots are counted, it's time to crown the supreme boy band.
The winner of MTV's Battle Of The Boy Bands is: Westlife!
Erin go Braugh, y'all. Everyone's favorite Irish boy band of the early 2000s beat out the Jonas Brothers to nab the title of the best boy band ever! And it wasn't even a close fight -- Westlife won with more than 70 percent of the final votes! How poignant for them: Westlife are going their separate ways after the conclusion of their Greatest Hits Tour, which kicks off later this week and wraps up at the end of June in their hometown of Dublin, Ireland.
Congrats to both Westlife and they're insanely committed and dedicated fans. Bragging rights forevskis.
Miley Cyrus and her dog wear sombreros to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
Miley Cyrus' Twitter feed is quickly becoming our favorite. Not only is she outspoken and hilarious, but she also posts pictures of her adorable dogs all the time, which is something we can definitely get down with. Milers did what every good partier should on the Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo -- she shared a photo of her dog wearing a tiny sombrero. Uh, te quiero. Mucho.
OK, so it was technically Seis de Mayo when Miley celebrated the festive holiday (that's "the sixth of May" for those still making their way through high school español), but who's counting? The "Party In The U.S.A." singer tweeted, "Happy Seis de Mayo," along with the most adorable picture we've seen since the last time Miley shared a photo of her dog. But this time THEY'RE WEARING MATCHING SOMBREROS. Can we make this a dog law or something? Tiny sombreros every day!

Karmin got their start like any other hardworking music act of the new millennium -- on YouTube. Unless you actually live under some kind of soundproof, internet-proof rock, then you've seen Amy Heidemann (the female half of Karmin) flow like a beast on the duo's cover of Chris Brown's "Look At Me Now." You know, the one that went around the internet like, 64 million times (!!!). Next thing you know, they're releasing a debut album full of original songs -- Hello, out May 8 -- and they're currently our PUSH artist of the week, almost a year to the day we named them a Buzzworthy "Buzz On" act. Lesson of the century: Keep vlogging and tweeting, kids!
Quick history lesson: Amy met her Karmin cohort and real-life boo Nick Noonan at Berklee College of Music, where they collaborated on school projects. They turned their conservatory training to mainstream pursuits. Amy used her theatrical prowess to shape-shift into an uncannily accurate version of pop stars like Demi Lovato and Pink and hip-hop heavyweights like Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes and even Kanye West, with Nick mixing and manning the synth. Their mesmerizing covers -- and Amy's machine-gun flow -- caught the attention of Ryan Seacrest, Ellen DeGeneres, more than a few major record labels. Ultimately, L.A. Reid signed them to Epic Records, landed them a musical guest spot on "Saturday Night Live" and basically ensured that you clear out some memory on your iPod for Karmin's permanent place in your music collection. Not bad for a girl from Nebraska who now has to postpone her wedding to play a music festival for millions of people.
And while we could watch Amy battle Busta Rhymes' tongue-twisters with an almost terrifying level of perfection, Karmin's more than just a cover band. They're bringing their own infectious brand of power-pop (and, yes, Amy's fast-lane flow) to their Hello debut, which features the shimmering smash, "Brokenhearted" (a song based on their real-life relationship) and the ferociously fearless "I Told You So," which sees its video premiere Tuesday, May 8, on MTV and MTV.com.
Karmin's already bigger than big. And the scary thing is, they're about to get even bigger. And we'll be here to say, well, "I Told You So."

OMG, the OMAs! Because we didn't have enough fun the first two times, the O Music Awards are back for round three, from the same people who brought you Chiddy Bang's nine-hour freestyle and the world's longest dance party. On June 27, the O Music Awards will attempt to break another world record -- the most live concerts in 24 hours in multiple cities! The record is currently held by Jay-Z, but one courageous band -- we'll reveal which band soon, so stay tuned -- will attempt to beat it: they'll board a tricked-out bus and zigzag across the southeast hitting a total of eight cities, starting in Memphis and ending in New Orleans. B ut that's not all -- this is gonna be the world’s first 24-hour, livestreamed awards show. Um, holy s***! Can't wait to see how they pull this off.
The O Music Awards are a celebration of all things related to digital music innovation, both online and off, and this year's list of will release their full list of categories and nominees will be revealed May 23 -- and you can write in nominees yourself, too. Hell, you could even nominate yourself. Past winners include Björk, Kanye West and Tokio Hotel and have featured live performances by Foster The People, Mac Miller and Alabama Shakes. So basically, anyone in the world can be nominated and everyone is invited. We can't wait.
Cheese and crackers, people. Did we have to wait long enough for this day to come or what? After approximately 8,000 sneak peeks and a billion dillion tweets from Justin Bieber promising it was on the way, his full-length "Boyfriend" video is finally here! And we can't be the only ones thinking it looks a tad familiar.
