Selena Gomez films her "Come & Get It" video...in WATER.
There's been a lot of Selena Gomez news on our radar these days (that'll get zero complaints from us!), what with her (probably) announcing to the world that Jelena has been RESURRECTED, palling around with Austin Mahone, and chilling with tiny Selena Stans in Justin Bieber T-shirts... ALL IN THE SAME WEEK. Now, the "obsessing over Selena photos" portion of our week continues, this time with the above pic of Sel looking, how shall we say this, miiiiiiighty seductive while doing some sort of interpretive dance in a large body of water as she films her official "Come & Get It" video.
And seriously, it's not like we didn't already know that "Come & Get It" would be a bit more on the en fuego side for Selena (see: her writhing around onstage at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards), we just had NO idea she'd take the damn thing to a body of water! (Because being seductive in water is way hotter than being seductive not in water, amirite?) Along with the above photo, Selena captioned: "Music video for Come and Get It coming to you guys really soon." So, yeah, how soon are we talking? Week? Month? 17 days? We just need enough lead time to finish bedazzling the red jumpsuit we'll wear the day of the video's official release.

Miley Cyrus is a total smokeshow in her Elle U.K. outtakes.
We have no shortage of Miley Cyrus pics in our repertoire, but usually they're self-snapped photos, sometimes taken with a dog (or two or three). And don't get us wrong: Even when dressing up like her dogs, Miley ALWAYS looks like a fox. It's just that after seeing some outtakes from her Elle UK spread, we are calling DOUBLE BABE ALERT! Not only is Miley stunning and totally ab-tastic, but she's total marriage material -- OR NOT! Well, as far as we're concerned, the "Fall Down" singer can "Liberty Walk" down the aisle, down her own path, or where she damn well pleases, 'cause even her outtakes are flawless!! (If you've successfully twerked a unicorn onesie, then you win at life forever.)
Inside the issue, the "Ashtrays And Heartbreaks" songstress addresses a TON of our burning questions, the most pressing of which, of course, is her highly publicized (maybe) breakup with Liam Hemsworth. She explained, "We have a house together and dogs. It just seems right to be wearing this ring and to be committed. But we keep our relationship low-key and don't talk about it anymore." Miley also elaborated on why she's cut back in letting the world into her life: "We were too nice to the world and gave them too much insight -- into my life and my puppies and my house -- and I just don't feel they get that privilege anymore. Like on my Twitter, I'm much more . . . not conservative, but you don't see a picture of my dogs. You don't get that personal stuff anymore." UMMMM, not exactly sure if that last part about not posting pics of her dogs is true, but let's just roll with it. Whatever works for you works for us!

Ray J attempts to make out with a Kim Kardashian lookalike in his "I Hit It First" video.
Yeah, so apparently Ray J's new track "I Hit It First" isn't about Kim Kardashian. And to that we say: ON WHAT PLANET? Sure, when we first heard Ray's single, we could MAYBE believe that lyrics like, "She might move on to rappers and ballplayers, but we all know I hit it first," and "I hit it north, with her ass goin' south, but now baby chose to go west" were generic (not really). That said, now Ray's released the track's video, featuring a too-close-for-comfort Kim K lookalike, we are officially calling B.S.! "I Hit It First" IS TOTALLY about Ray and Kim's
sex tape relationship. And on that note: DUDE. GET. OVER. IT!

Want to hook up with The Wanted? Just learn how to "Walk Like Rihanna." Done and done!
Call us behind the times, but we didn't know that "Walking Like Rihanna" was "a thing." But thanks to The Wanted's aptly titled jam "Walks Like Rihanna," it's fully becoming one! Sure, it might make more sense to sing about performing like Rihanna, posing naked like Rihanna, grabbing your crotch like Rihanna, or even cradling a baby like Rihanna, but walking? That's a new one! And now that the full track has been unleashed, it's almost as if the boys have written a comprehensive "how-to" laundry list of things they want in a potential girlfriend. To which we say: PRAISE! We need all the help we can get!

JELENA is BACK FROM THE DEAD! Rejoice!
And there you have it, folks: The definitive "Jelena is back in the saddle" photo that will put all of your "are they or aren't they??" queries to rest! (Sure, THIS picture was also a serious indicator, but the more Instagram proof the merrier, ya know?) For those of you who are still lost in the whole "Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez breakup situation," it might be your lucky day (P.S.: Denial is not a healthy coping mechanism) because JUST LOOK AT THE ABOVE PHOTO. You don't sit with your arms wrapped around a milli-pack ab shirtless guy with your head resting seductively on his shoulder if you're not SUPER INTO IT.
Also: You and I both know that in the Instagram world, the PROOF IS IN THE CAPTION. And let's just say the "All Around The World" singer's caption choice has made this situation crystal clear: "You've been makin music for too long babe come cuddle - her." Come cuddle? More like "Come & Get It"!! Anyway, as far as we're concerned, Jelena is fully back together, which means two things: First, summer's coming up, so don't pretend you're not excited to see this couple Instagram their way through a swimwear-only tropical getaway. Last, and perhaps most crucially -- does this mean Justin's POTENTIAL SELENA TATTOO IS REAL? Probably!

Cris Cab lives the good life in "When We Were Young."
It's not quite summer YET, but for Miami-based crooner Cris Cab, it's always either June, July, or August! Or, according to his "When We Were Young" video (from the Red Road mixtape), it's at least always time to take the boat out for a spin and surround yourself with hot bikini-clad babes who just looooove to listen to you sing like Paul Simon! Tough life you got there, Cris. TOUGH LIFE.

Watch Nickelodeon actress Victoria Justice sing a rendition of fun.'s "Some Nights."
Not gonna lie, Victoria Justice's "Best Friends Brother" may or may not be on our gym mix, and we are PROUD! And while the Nickelodeon celeb might be best known for her sugary-sweet pop anthems and stints on "Zoey 101" and "Victorious," we're currently in awe over her latest offering: a stripped-down, acoustic rendition of fun.'s "Some Nights."

Sara Bareilles urges us to be "Brave."
We've asked around, and survey says that nobody does a "feel-good Friday" quite like our all-time fantasy BFF Sara Bareilles, who just dropped the lyric video to "Brave," a bubbly jam cowritten by fun.'s Jack Antonoff. And we say "fantasy BFF" because, well, who wouldn't want to be best pals with the girl who wrote 2009's tear-jerking "Gravity"? (We're telling you, this lady has a WAY with words.)

All The Wanted guys need is a girl who "Walks Like Rihanna." Is that too much to ask?
Writing songs about famous pop stars is, like, totally a "thing" now. Seriously, who knew? First, Drake comes out with "Girls Love Beyonce," and now The Wanted have unveiled the title and a 30-second preview of their Dr. Luke-produced single "Walks Like Rihanna," slated to appear on their forthcoming third studio album. That said, we really should give props to O-Town's groundbreaking "Liquid Dreams," which probably started this whole "name-dropping pop stars in a song" trend. Remember how those boys wanted "a girl who's a mix of Destiny's Child/ Just a little touch Madonna's wild style/ With Janet Jackson's smile"? Also, is it OK that I still love that song?

It wouldn't be a Rihanna preshow routine without some nudity!
One would think that with our recent coverage of Rihanna's every move (i.e. that time she accessorized with a small child, that time she grabbed her crotch, that time she wore Prada boots AND NOTHING ELSE, that time she wore Audrey Hepburn pearls, etc.), that there would be no way we'd miss the above photo of Ri sitting naked while getting made up for her "Diamonds World Tour" stopover in Atlanta. But alas: LATE PASS ALERT! Maybe our "Rihanna naked" Google Alert was having an off day? (OK, just kidding. We obviously don't have a "Rihanna naked" Google Alert... until NOW.)
And sure, this pic of the "Stay" singer might've been posted a few days ago, but let us ask you this: Does Rihanna's unrelenting willingness to post attractive naked pics ever get old? Aaaand the answer to that would be a resounding "NOPE," because Rihanna's basically made an art form out of the "kind-of-almost-naked-but-not-naked-enough-to-be-kicked-off-Instagram" selfie, and we gotta respect that. Plus, how much sense does it make that part of Rihanna's preshow routine involves being naked? Like, really stop and think about that for a minute, and you'll realize that maybe life isn't so confusing after all.
