After a two-year hiatus, The Airborne Toxic Event are back with "Timeless."
It's been a hot minute (around two torturous years, to be exact) since L.A.'s The Airborne Toxic Event released a new record -- and we really mean "torturous," because we doubt the perpetually melancholy five-piece would have it any other way. Last we heard from them, the shoegazey, hyperliterate rock act was at work promoting 2011's All At Once, and now, TATE is readying their third full-length, Such Hot Blood, set to drop this spring. Leading the charge on Such Hot Blood's release is TATE's brand-new, epic single, "Timeless."

Meet Kat Dahlia. She's a "Gangsta."
Late pass alert! Miami-raised Kat Dahlia's bumpin' new single "Gangsta" came out over the holidays, but apparently we were too busy gaining 26 pounds, opening
socks again presents, and gearing up for the "Buckwild" premiere to notice -- OUR BAD! Now that things have calmed down a bit, we feel it's crucial to bring both Kat and "Gangsta" to your attention.

Ryan Leslie spits rhymes on his "Suit & Tie" remix.
The poor internet must be sooo fatigued from all the excitement surrounding Justin Timberlake's big "comeback" jam, "Suit & Tie," and that's not even including the news of his forthcoming album, The 20/20 Experience. It's like, can't a girl get a break?? (Because obviously the internet is a lady, HELLO.) Since "Suit & Tie"'s release, the internet has been ablaze with vehement fan reactions (What did you think? Vote in our poll!), ranging from fainting-on-the-floor-obsessed to slipping-into-a-dark-depression/coma disappointed. But one Justin Stan in particular thought "Suit & Tie" lived up to its hype. Meet singer, producer, and occasional rapper Ryan Leslie, who has proudly hopped aboard what we anticipate to be a very crowded "Suit & Tie" remix train.

Lady Gaga stands proudly next to her Born Brave Bus.
It's been a big week for Lady Gaga's opinions, but then again, when is it not a big week for Gaga's opinions? In between having a little beef-off with Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, Gaga has been spending night after night twerking it out on stage for her "Born This Way Ball" tour. Now, on top of all that, Lady Gaga has miraculously found the time to launch her Born Brave Bus in Tacoma, Wash.. We'd go out and buy a bus ticket for that RIGHT NOW, but something tells us it doesn't make any stops in Port Authority.

Ciara and Future team up on "Wake Up, No Make-Up."
Ciara and Future may or may not be dating, but they've definitely been holed up in the studio together making sweet, sweet music. (Gross, our apologies.) After collaborating on a remix of CiCi's single "Sorry", the maybe-couple have just unleashed a brand-new track called "Wake Up, No Make-Up." As in, waking up and not immediately running to the bathroom to apply your under-eye concealer before the person lying next to you sees your morning face. Which incidentally, may or may not still have last night's mascara still caked on it. Aaaaaand TMI.

FYI, Willow and Jaden Smith are not your typical brother and sister duo.
As solo artists, Jaden Smith and Willow Smith have brought us a series of jams like "The Coolest" and "Sugar And Spice," respectively. Together, they've been featured on big bro AcE's "Find You Somewhere," and now, the ridiculously talented Jaden and Willow are back at it with their brand-new record, "Kite." Oh, and if you need us, we'll be over here trying trying to forget the fact that Jaden and Willow can't even DRIVE yet.

Just the sweet, country cutie Taylor Swift throwing some major side-eye on the 2013 Golden Globes red carpet.
Taylor Swift is no stranger to looking sugary sweet (cc: that one time she fell in love and biked around Paris in her "Begin Again" video, UGH #perfectlife), but that doesn't mean she's incapable of throwing a little shade either. Along with Adele, Bon Jovi, Keith Urban, and an original song from “Les Miserables," Taylor's "Safe & Sound" was nominated for Best Original Song -- Motion Picture at last night's Golden Globe Awards, and it's our professional opinion that her fierce red carpet mug is basically saying, "I'm coming for YOU, ADELE!" And also, "Do you see how perfect I look, Harry Styles??" But mainly the first one.
Check out more photos of Taylor Swift giving some quiet side-eye after the jump.
Oh, JUST A BRAND-NEW JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE JAM!
Remember that time we saw a random photo of Justin Timberlake on the phone and we were all like, "Maybe he's talking to Timbaland about his new album??" That was just wishful thinking at the time, but guys, IT'S LITERALLY POSSIBLE WE WERE RIGHT! Because Justin Timberlake's new song, "Suit & Tie," produced by *cough cough* Timbaland and featuring JAY-Z, just dropped, and it's so good I want to call my mom and thank her for giving birth to me so I could hear it and then call Lynn Harless and thank her for giving birth to Justin, which I've been meaning to do anyway. But, like, OF COURSE it's that good since one doesn't usually stage a dramatic Twitter countdown, film an ominous "I'm ready" video, and hire someone to create a countdown WEBSITE if your new ish ain't EN FUEGO.

Bey takes baby Blue for a dip in ocean!
Time for another shout-out to Beyoncé, who is officially killing it in all directions! First, she rendered us speechless with her not-human-and-never-could-be postbaby bod on the cover of GQ. Then, we drooled over more Terry Richardson-shot pics from her GQ spread, which further convinced us that Beyoncé is in fact the queen of a beauty-bot tribe. Next, Bey unleashed details of a DESTINY'S CHILD REUNION (how psyched are you for that jelly??), and now, Beyhive has oh-so-casually released a photo of her playing in the ocean with daughter/baby royalty, Blue Ivy. It's simply too much.
As she often does, Beyoncé took to her Tumblr to post this AH-dorable photo of her and Baby Blue. You can't see him, but you and I both know that proud hubby and daddy Jay-Z was probably the one to snap this picture, all while beaming with pride at his stunning family, and -- who are we kidding -- maybe simultaneously formulating a hit rap song in his head. (This photo totally makes us think back to Jigga's "Big Pimpin'" video, ya know?) Aaaand that about brings me to my daily quota of "Carter Family Fantasy Hour." Tune in again next week when we find more excuses to salivate over Beyoncé's GLORIOUS LIFE!

Ke$ha explores furry culture in her new "C'Mon" video.
It seems perfectly logical that after her Illuminati-driven "Die Young" video, Ke$ha would want to take her follow-up clip in the polar opposite direction. And what is the opposite of pentagrams, crosses, animal horns, all-seeing eyes, sacrificial altars, and various other forms of satanic imagery, you ask? DUH! FURRIES! Still a little cultish, but it's Ke$ha -- weirdness is baked into her DNA. So it should come as a surprise to precisely no one that Ke$ha has a furry fiesta in her new video from "C'Mon" off of her Warrior album.
In case you're unfamiliar with the term, "furries" are adult humans who like to dress up in giant plush animal costumes (giant head and all) like the ones seen in that that borderline awkward dance party in Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" video. Except Ke$ha takes furry culture to a far dirtier place in "C'Mon." Because apparently furries sometimes do more than "just hug." (THINLY VEILED EUPHEMISM!)
