Something tells us Mac Miller's "Watching Movies" might be rated NC-17.
We don't want to sound weird, but we'd be into just about ANYTHING featuring a nude Mac Miller. (What?! We have a thing for vaguely emo rappers who know how to love!) Well, lucky for us, Mac's sophomore studio album, Watching Movies With The Sound Off (dropping June 18!), features exactly that.
And that's not all of today's good Mac Miller-related news: Along with Mac's nake-o album art comes a slightly less naked single: "Watching Movies."

Miguel and Mariah Carey sing each other's praises in their "#Beautiful" video.
It's not like we didn't know Mariah Carey's arms were seriously toned (I mean, did you SEE her Cinderella wedding vow renewal dress??), but HOLY EFF, MiMi looks unreal in her "#Beautiful" video featuring soulful throwback R&B crooner Miguel! It's like the return of the "Fantasy"-era abs up in here, and we are NOT complaining.

Justin Bieber enjoys a cold beer in the jungle.
Alllllllright, ladies and gents. Let's all just calm down and approach this situation -- the above photo of Justin Bieber enjoying a cold beer in the jungle -- with logic and reason. Because yes, it may be a little off-putting to see the once purple-obsessed baby tot act all adult with a beer in hand, but then again, what's the kid supposed to do? ONLY hydrate with water for the rest of his life?
Anyway, before y'all get all up in arms about how Justin's still technically underage, consider this factoid: Per our calculations, Justin's "Believe" tour is on a stopover in South Africa, where the legal drinking age is 18. That's one year younger than Justin, who is 19, which also means he's also old enough to drink in his home country of Canada. Along with the above photo, Justin succinctly captioned, "Beers in the jungle." So yeah, we guess the moral here is that Justin Bieber is 19, and he drinks beer. Also, we feel like if you're old enough to sit shirtless while your girlfriend caresses your midsection, you're probably old enough to have a drink (in Africa). We would, however, advise Justin NOT to Instagram his alcohol intake in the future, mainly because we assume that there's NOTHING, and we repeat NOTHING, more frightening than an angry swarm of "Moms of Beliebers" coming atcha!

Aw, it's a picture-perfect family photo of Tokio Hotel!
We have some Tokio Hotel-related things to discuss with you today. First, please direct your eyes to the above photo. No, really, just sit back and soak it in! Because if that's not the most perfect, frame-worthy Kodak moment that captures the essences of our German idols, then you're just doing it all wrong and you always have been. The gentle lean against the wall, the pensive stare... it's BEAUTIFUL. (And it's also going up on our fridge next to this photo of Justin and Selena.)
Find out what's going on with Tokio Hotel after the jump.
You heard it here first: Mike Tompkins is the most popular person on the internet.
Meet Mike Tompkins. Well, actually, if you spend ANY time on the computer, you might've already "e"-met Mike since he's basically the most "YouTube famous" musician around (ahemmmm, just ask his 130 million views and 825k YouTube subscribers). But on the off chance that you're NOT familiar with Mike, then we'll give you the full 411 on his pop/a cappella vibe (popcapella?), his awesome YouTube covers, and his slick, radio-friendly originals. And no, I don't need any royalties on the word "popcappella," thanks for asking.

Avril Lavigne explores that Peter Pan complex in her "Here's To Never Growing Up" video.
At this point, we've already established that Avril Lavigne's "I don't wanna grow up; I'm a Toy R Us kid" Peter Pan complex is here to stay. And honestly, why should Avril ever grow up? Her life has been BOMB so far (helped in large part by her skating rink-size engagement ring). That in mind, Avril's commitment to youth is CRYSTAL clear in her shouty, perfectly polished pop anthem "Here's To Never Growing Up," and its accompanying senior prom-themed video.

This Belieber's life will NEVER be the same.
We're pretty sure that when 98 percent of Beliebers go to bed at night, they are lulled into a deep sleep by thoughts of being serenaded by their king. We assume the fantasy goes something like this: You show up to a stopover on Justin Bieber's "Believe" tour, your nosebleed seats are magically upgraded to, like, third row-center, and just as Justin starts singing "One Less Lonely Girl," he looks directly into your eyes, beckons you up on to the stage, and sings to you and only you for the next five minutes! Yeah, we know it's only a fantasy, but you know what? For one lucky Cape Town Belieber, most of that dream came true last night!
As you can see in the above photo, one of the luckiest Beliebers of all time got serenaded by Justin last night during his "Believe" tour stopover in Cape Town. (We can neither confirm or deny that her seat was upgraded, or whether Justin sang "One Less Lonely Girl," but the serenading and the gazing? THAT REALLY HAPPENED.) Along with posting the picture to Twitter, Justin captioned, "Great moment last night. #capetown
#BELIEVEtour." Uh, great moment for JB, life-changing moment for what must be the HAPPIEST girl in the world. Wonder if her "cool" status will go up at school, or if she'll forever be regarded by her teachers and peers as "the girl who touched Justin Bieber"? This is the stuff of legends!

Emblem3 have the perfect California day in their "Chloe (You're The One I Want)" lyric video.
Emblem3 are kind of LIVING IT UP right now. Not only did the trio come in fourth on the second season of "The X Factor," but they're currently trekking across the country in a pimped-out tour bus for their "Goin' Back To Cali" road trip! So it makes total sense that the boys' newly unleashed "Chloe (You're The One I Want)" lyric video would be as "Cali"-themed as a video could get. It's got sun, happiness, beaches, and palm trees, and nobody is sweating! (That one still baffles us.)

Leah LaBelle brings all the boys to the yard in her "Lolita" video.
We're not ones to ignore a Pharrell co-sign (that's, like, HUGE in our book), which is why we're paying close attention to Leah LaBelle (Pharrell's protégé and Season 3 "American Idol" alum) and her newly released "Lolita" video, off her forthcoming debut album (due sometime in 2013). You may have first heard Leah's retro-tinged, Pharrell-produced jam back in January, and now that her saucy, sexy video is out, well, let's just say that this is one you'll want to watch at home. Ideally with your boyfriend or girlfriend on speed dial.

Britney Spears' abs are ON ANOTHER LEVEL in Shape magazine.
Wanna know what we use for gym motivation? Oh, just Britney Spears' "I'm A Slave 4 U" video where she's sweating profusely and twerking her rock-hard abs. Wanna know what we're using NOW for going-to-the-gym motivation? Oh, just Britney's new June Shape magazine cover where her "Slave"-caliber abs are on full display. Only this is AFTER squeezing out two kids! It's UNREAL!
Decked in a super-revealing bathing suit that's either a one-piece, bikini, or both (Are you taking notes, Nicki Minaj?), Britney went into detail about her upcoming Vegas residency (YESSSSSSSS!) and workout routine (which we imagine isn't too far off from Justin Bieber's workout routine): "I'm doing 90 minutes of yoga twice a week in addition to a lot of cardio -- hour-long sessions three times a week with my trainer, Tony Martinez. The [Vegas] performances won't be simple -- they'll be a massive party from start to finish. And to pull this off, I have to be in top condition and running at full speed."
Wow, well, that routine is paying OFF, bb! Keep up the good work! Also, just know that today you've inspired us to swap our traditional mac & cheese + Ben & Jerry's lunch for some healthy crudités and water.
