The Wanted reenact classic boy band videos in their "Walks Like Rihanna" clip.
In our heads, The Wanted's "Walks Like Rihanna" video (the lead single off The Wanted's upcoming 2013 album) would either be an "America's Next Top Model"-style competition to find the next professional "Rihanna Walker," OR it would be a montage of 10,000 actual Rihannas traipsing around the city. Well, we hate to disappoint, but the boys finally released their "Walks Like Rihanna" video last night, and neither of our scenarios panned out. And even though we were bummed that Rihanna didn't show up for a cameo, we had absolutely NO problem seeing The Wanted re-enact iconic scenes from other famous boy band videos! Meaning, if you've ever wondered what The Wanted would look like dressed up like the Backstreet Boys or *NSYNC, then today's your lucky day.

Yes, that is Niall Horan, and yes, he's sleeping in sunglasses and a baseball cap. Ain't no thang.
What's that they say? Payback's a b****? Yep, that is precisely what they say, plus that whole "karma is a boomerang" principal. Well, both are ringing especially true for One Direction's Niall Horan right now. Because do you remember when Niall took this epic selfie with his drooling, sleeping friend in the background? Well, guess Niall shouldn't have fallen asleep anywhere in the vicinity of fellow prankster and One Direction bandmate Zayn Malik, because as you can see, Zayn is in no way opposed to taking pics of Niall while he's asleep on the tour bus! Also, let's just point out (you know, for emphasis) that the kid is fully conked out wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap.
Honestly, the whole "taking a sleeping picture of someone" thing should technically score super high on the "you're a creep!" meter, but there's just something about Niall's adorable, peaceful face that makes us categorize this in the "cute" section of our brains. Along with the photo of a clearly pooped Niall taking a snooze, Zayn captioned, "check this diva out!! asleep with his shades on pfft ha !! x." Not sure why, but we have a sneaking suspicion that if Zayn had taken this photo about one minute later, a significant dribble of drool would be sliding down that diva's mouth. Also, sorry for saying the word "drool" before lunch.

Becky G is the star of her neighborhood in her "Play It Again" video.
By now we're kind of under the impression that 2013 MTV Artist To Watch Becky G's career is foolproof. Why? Well, aside from her spitfire style and "no effs" attitude, the 16-year-old rapper already has a co-sign from Jennifer Lopez (remember that J. Lo cameo in Becky's "Becky From The Block" video?), which is basically like a co-sign from God him/herself. That said, we had no doubt that Becky's latest video, "Play It Again," set to appear on her upcoming debut album, would be anything other than a knockout. And duh, we were right!

Dylan Reynolds gets contemplative in his "Spanish Civil War" video.
We'll be blunt: Not a lot happens in Dylan Reynolds' "Spanish Civil War" video. In fact, aside from the 21-year-old alt-folk/pop musician sitting sideways with his hair blowing in the wind, literally NOTHING happens! But we kinda think that's the point, right? Because when your song is as minimalist and delicate as Mac Miller's bestie's "Spanish Civil War," the video's tone should probably match. And when have we ever NOT wanted to stare at a cute "in-touch-with-his-emotions" singer for a few solid minutes?

Listen to Demi Lovato's brand-new jam, "Made In The USA."
It's a big day for Lovatics! Sorry, did we say "big"? We meant "GARGANTUAN." Not only can you stream Demi's latest album, Demi, in full (We're holding a champagne toast tonight at our place, and you're more than welcome to stop by), but you can also listen to Demi's (rumored) next single, "Made In The USA"!

Madonna + Beyoncé = BFF's 4 LYFE!
We'll just give you a minute to fully appreciate what's happening in the above image. No, really, just STARE at this photo of Beyoncé and Madonna from last night's 2013 Met Gala for 30 seconds. Don't be alarmed if you feel your heart rate escalate and your palms get a little sweaty. Because on WHAT PLANET has there ever been a photo with such a hefty dose of FIERCE?!? That's right: NOWHERE in the history of all photos.
Bey and Madge hit up the 2013 Met Gala last night, and in between hobnobbing with basically every celeb in the world, the two powerhouse superstars took a minute to pose with each other! And honestly, why shouldn't these ladies be tight? They've got a TON in common. For one thing, they both know what it's like to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show (although Madonna didn't kill the stadium lights), they know what it's like to sell out world tours, and perhaps most crucial, they both have singular stage names! WE CAN'T. Maybe Beyoncé can get Madonna's kid Lourdes to babysit Blue Ivy while the adults go out for a caviar-only dinner? Perfect idea!

Watch Jay-Z, Baz Luhrman, and others discuss the "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack.
By now you've probably streamed and re-streamed The Great Gatsby soundtrack so often that you could literally throw a "Gatsby"-themed karaoke party and wouldn't even have to Google (and then print out) the lyrics. That in mind, we're sure you've wondered once or twice just how on Earth Baz Luhrmann got all of those musical heavyweights together to help build the Gatsby soundtrack! Well, now you can find out in an exclusive video about the Jay-Z-produced soundtrack, featuring interviews with Lana Del Rey, Florence + The Machine, The xx, Bryan Ferry, and more.

Listen to Mariah Carey and Miguel's "Beautiful" collaboration.
We kiiiiind of hate the word "comeback" in regards to Mariah Carey, because, well, it's not like she ever went away. She took a small hiatus from the musical spotlight, but we still saw her posing adorably with Dem Babies, watched her battle it out with Nicki Minaj on "American Idol," and listened to a few less-than-special songs like "Almost Home." That in mind, Mariah's latest endeavor, "#Beautiful," featuring the mad soulful Miguel, is OFF THE CHAIN. So, even though we kinda hate to say it, "Welcome back, Mimi!"

Miley Cyrus got the No. 1 spot on Maxim's Hot 100 list! (And is anyone surprised?)
We can't exactly label the above photo NSFW, but, well, DAYUM, Miley Cyrus is looking like a serious fox, and it's kind of hard to take right now, especially considering the raisin bagel with full-fat cream cheese we ate this morning. Anyway, what we're trying to say here is that the professional arabesque-er just snagged the No. 1 spot on Maxim's Hot 100 list, and uhhh, WE CAN SEE WHY.
Wanna know how the "Ashtrays And Heartbreaks" singer celebrated her Maxim achievement?! Nope, it wasn't by ordering a large pizza with extra cheese! Miley chose the way less caloric option of joining Instagram! That's right! Feel free to un-follow those 10 bogus Miley accounts, because Miley's officially an Insta girl! Why did Miley join this late in the game? Well, maybe because it's 2013 and get on Instagram, but also how GORG are Miley's dog photos gonna look through an Instagram filter? (Amaro is a personal fave.) Also, maybe she could run a few wedding pics through a filter? Because there's still a strong chance she's probably (hopefully) getting married to Liam Hemsworth. What!? We're just thinking ahead and trying to help Miley socially organize her wedding day. GEEZ.

Paris Hilton and Christina Milian guest on Rich Gang's "Tapout" video.
Rich Gang may actually have THE MOST coveted iPhone contacts EVER. No, really: Rich Gang's "Tapout" video, taken from their forthcoming album out June 25, features basically everyone ever (Lil Wayne, Future, Birdman, Mack Maine, and Nicki Minaj). And did we mention that they even found a way to convince Paris Hilton to play a waitress? Paris Hilton?! The one and ONLY? When does that ever happen?
