Gaga wore a catcher's face mask. Because sometimes being a pop star is like playing baseball.
You probably already knew that Lady Gaga had a penchant for fashion-forward headgear because after all, you did vote her MTV Style’s Readers’ Choice Best-Dressed Woman, and "dressed" also means wearing stuff on your face! No, not just your head. FOR YOUR FACE. Examples? Just a few months ago, Gaga rocked an all-flower football helmet and now, she's she's protecting her precious mug in an all-metal catcher's mask draped in chains! And knowing Gaga, this ish is solid sterling silver. Scratch that -- platinum. Only the highest-quality protective face gear for The Gags.
According to Gaga's oft travel companion and BFF Terry Richardson, The Lady rocked this stunning face mask while en route to rehearse for her recent gig with The Rolling Stones. We're not quite sure why Gaga felt the need to protect her face in an already seemingly protected vehicle (plus, a mask makes it extra hard to eat prerehearsal snacks), but if Mother Monster has proven anything, it's that she'll probably be in a new outfit by lunchtime. Plus, maybe she was having a bad hair day! And didn't feel like wearing a hat! We also want to keep comparing her face mask to stuff. Like Bane from "The Dark Knight Rises"! Or Hannibal Lecter! (Um, safe to say he figured out a snack work-around.)

Cee Lo as Santa is the best Holiday-themed thing you're ever gonna see. Ever.
Cee Lo Green is no stranger to getting extra festive for the holidays (please see his Cee Lo's Magic Moment album art), but watching him dress up as his own version of Santa Claus (Cee Lo Clause?), ride in on a sleigh, and dole out presents? Yep, that's basically Christmas perfection.
The season finale of "The Voice" aired last night, and although Cassadee Pope was crowned the official winner (mazels on that, bb!), "The Voice" judge Cee Lo Green was on hand to give away Kia cars to the top three contestants! Which, again, actually makes him Santa, because GIFTS! If the above photo is too overwhelming for you to process, then we'll walk you through a few key elements, the most important of which being Cee Lo's sidekick elf who looks a just a little too happy to be Cee Lo's holiday assistant. The second, of course, is Mr. Green's white angel costume (not a typical Santa suit, but we'll take it!), followed closely by the shooting star that's casually radiating out of his wig. Sadly, last night was Cee Lo's last time on "The Voice" as a judge until next fall (Usher and Shakira are taking over for Cee Lo and Christina Aguilera this spring), but we honestly couldn't think of a better send-off. We'll miss you, dear Cee Lo, but we're EXTREMELY REVVED for that new Goodie Mob album.

Watch E.B. Wright's new "What I Wanna Do" video. Did we mention she's Eazy-E's daughter?
Guys, meet E.B. Wright. But when we say "meet," we actually kinda mean "meet again," because you may already recognize her for several reasons: First, E.B. is the daughter of the late Eazy-E, and second, she's a familiar MTV face, having already appeared on "My Super Sweet 16" and later, on "My Super Sweet 16 Presents Exiled," in which E.B. was exiled to the countryside of Mongolia to live as a nomad. Yep, Eazy-E's daughter spent time living as a nomad -- that's a real thing that I'd like to ask her about. Third, we recently previewed her forthcoming "What I Wanna Do" video, and now, we've got the entire thing for you to check out right now. #ThankUsLater. (Drake reference definitely intended.)

Cody Simpson turns Frank Ocean's "Super Rich Kids" into his own "Super Beach Kids."
Covering Frank Ocean seems like the obvious choice these days because, well, Frank's songs are the effing best. And while you might expect that "Thinkin Bout You" would be the cover song of choice, we've been quietly waiting for someone to cover our personal favorite Frank Ocean jam (and the true sleeper hit of Frank Ocean's Grammy-nominated R&B Channel Orange debut) -- the Earl Sweatshirt-assisted "Super Rich Kids."

Rihanna poses makeup-free (and clothed!), is still stunning.
We'll keep this one short and sweet because, well, we're not sure we wanna spend all day talking about how gorg Rihanna looks without makeup (our jealousy issues are raging today). That said, we feel it is our civic duty as faithful members of the Rihanna Navy to bring this unique Rihanna photo to your attention.
After seeing a flood of stunning Rihanna photos surface over the past few months (both clothed and not clothed...OK fine, mostly not clothed), it's kind of refreshing to see the gal who was just named MTV News' "Rockstar Of The Year" rock with with no makeup (pun intended, obviously). And in a long, black, fully-covering-her-entire-body knit sweater to boot! (Maybe she finally gathered it was cold out?) Don't get us wrong -- we're not complaining about our ever-growing collection of fully made-up, basically nake-o shots of Rihanna, it's just nice to see the natural side of her too. Which brings us to our final and most crucial point: Would you get a load of that bone structure!? #Cheekbones.

Alicia Keys becomes a new woman in "Brand New Me."
Alicia Keys is totally slaying the game right now. Her brand-new Girl On Fire disc just topped the Billboard 200, making this the fifth No. 1 album of her career, and now she's just unleashed a new video, aptly titled "Brand New Me." We think that deserves a slow clap.

First you see Joe Jonas' stunning mug, now you don't!
There is nothing, we repeat, NOTHING, better than a Joe Jonas selfie taken while lying down in bed. (So many things we could say here, but this is a family blog, so we'll keep it clean.) And that's exactly what we thought we were getting when we clicked on one of the middle Jonas' recent tweets. Here we were all like, "look how hot and scruffy Joe looks taking a quick catnap in bed with a floral duvet cover!" Then we realized that maybe this floral duvet cover possibly belonged to Joe's rumored new girlfriend, because why would Joe have a floral bedspread? But nonetheless, we were like "HE LOOKS DAMN GOOD."
But then, as if someone was trying to seriously give us a panic attack, this stunning selfie of Joe transformed into a torturous GIF that, brace yourselves, covered Joe's beautiful mug! As you can see in the GIF above, Joe felt it was appropriate to place what we believe to be a gray knit hat over his stunning face, and then make a GIF of it. Sure, we appreciate the creativity and all, but didn't your mama teach you NEVER to mess with a Jonas face? Come on now, this is basic common sense.

Gwen Stefani werques it on the cover of Vogue.
On one hand, every time we see Gwen Stefani we feel a ray of hope for the future, because if someone can look THAT good after having two kids, then there's honestly ZERO for us to worry about (assuming we apply all the right moisturizing creams and take all the right Pilates classes). On the other hand, we've heard from solid sources that Gwen's not actually an IRL human with normal aging genes, which definitely changes things. And unfortch, we're kinda leaning toward the genetically modified beauty-bot theory because, well, looking this hot in general isn't normal, let alone at 43 and after the two kids thing.

Gaga performed with THE ROLLING STONES. She should probably just retire now.
We don't have to tell you that Lady Gaga's had a lot of cool things happen to her (um, hello, THE FLOWER HELMET), but performing with THE ROLLING STONES? The Lady should just up and retire right this minute, because it probably doesn't get any better than that. Lady Gaga joined the legendary troupe at their "One More Shot" pay-per-view event event this past Saturday, and not only did she fearlessly rock a striped onesie (which honestly would have been enough for us to be wildly impressed), but she also slayed her verse of the Stones' classic "Gimme Shelter."

The Killers pose with "Here With Me" director, Tim Burton.
The Killers are on a video-releasing spree! After recently dropping their video for "Miss Atomic Bomb," now we've got even more new visuals from the boys, this time by way of their Tim Burton-directed clip "Here With Me." And did we mention that it stars Winona Ryder? And that it kinda/sorta/maybe could pass for the sequel to "Edward Scissorhands" (minus the Johnny Depp with the hands part)? Yeah, get EXCITED.
