Happy Britney Jean release week!! On this momentous -- nay, blessed week, we join together to celebrate the new arrival of Britney Spears' eighth studio album. What a long, winding road it's been, my friends. What a long, winding road. *Starts humming Sheryl Crow's "Every Day Is A Winding Road*
Anyway, maybe you already
cried in front of scrolled through our official Britney Jean GIF album review, watched an endearing interview with Britney from the year 2000, and LOLed over some 'Spearitual' fan art, but clearly the fun's not over yet. Nope, we're just getting started! Because we're NEVER gonna get through this week of praising Godney to high heaven without some Britney Jean lyric GIFs!! Yep, we've covered everything from the empowering "Passenger" to the explosive "Tik Tik Boom."
Soooo, are ya ready? Good! Now get to work, b*tch!

What's better than childhood photos of One Direction? Childhood photos... made into GIFs!
How much closer do you feel to One Direction right now? Because after watching their just-released tearjerker of a video for "Story Of My Life" (which frankly sounds like a sonic move in the "Mumford & Sons" direction -- i.e., APPROVE), we can say with absolute certainty that we feel 10 times more intimate with the British bros. Like, in the "your mom just showed me an entire bookcase worth of family albums" kinda way. #FineWithIt
Over the course of the guys' new clip, which is directed by Ben Winston and looks like it was filmed in a friggin' 1D museum (curators of the world: MAKE THIS HAPPEN), Harry, Niall, Liam, Zayn, and Louis hang out in the darkroom developing childhood photos, gaze at said childhood photos with nostalgia, then reenact those photos in adult form with their families.
We've got Zayn hanging in his childhood room with his IRL sister, Harry EATING A BOWL OF SAUSAGES with his mum, Liam posing in formal wear with his sisters, and Niall playing violin with his brother, among other images. In all, it's the visual equivalent to being smacked upside the head with more "OMAHGERD AW" than your tear ducts can possibly handle. Consider yourself warned.
Anyway, you know what this means, right? Yep! It's time to retell One Direction's childhood story… in GIFS!
...And if you need us, we'll be scooping up what's left of our melted hearts off the floor and crying in the fetal position with a bowl of ice cream.

We're basically still reeling from all the boy band memories in The Wanted's "Walks Like Rihanna" video. I mean, can you blame us?? It's not every day we're met with an onslaught of scenes from *NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye," the Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way," and Take That's "Back For Good"... AT THE SAME TIME. No wonder we're so dizzy! Wait, we might actually be dizzy from this brilliant collection of "Walks Like Rihanna" GIFs, orchestrated by our very own AWARD-WINNING GIF wizard, T. Kyle MacMahon! That's right: Not only can you repeatedly watch The Wanted blowing kisses (and sort of grabbing themselves) at the airport à la the Backstreet Boys, but you can ALSO stare at Max George's face getting drenched in water over and over and over and over... wait, what were we talking about?

Oh, look! It's a new Taylor Swift video! And in keeping with One Direction and Ke$ha's "Live Like We're Gonna Die Young" trend, Taylor's "22" video celebrates the ish out of being just young enough to successfully chest-bump on a trampoline without crashing down in a heap of broken limbs (then she'd REALLY be "lying on the cold, hard ground," LOL). OK, all bad jokes aside, we were totally memorized by Taylor's ode to female friendship (those are her real buds in the video!), which is positively stuffed with hair flips, booty-poppin', cat ears, beach trips, baked goods, pool parties, and most importantly, Taylor's longstanding inclusion of "hipster" glasses. So, with this abundance of STUFF, of course we had to dedicate a GIF wall to "22"! Relive Taylor Swift's "22" video below, and remember: never attempt a midair trampoline chest-bump without a spotter.

It's Rihanna's 25th birthday! PARTY!!!
Today is a B-I-G day in Buzzworthy world, and here's why: It's Rihanna's 25th birthday!! That's right, our favorite Unapologetic songstress is officially a quarter-of-a-century old. (Which sounds sort of old when you say it that way, except that IT'S NOT.) And we have so much Rihanna stuff to be thankful for on this day, like the beyond gorgeous "Stay," its accompanying sad bathtub video (please don't spend the day in there, Ri), her River Island clothing collection, her bodacious bo-day, her bodacious body in a sexy bikini, her bodacious body SANS sexy bikini, and basically EVERYTHING that happened in 2012. Heck, we'll even look past her maybe-sort of on-again-off-again... thing with Chris Brown AND all those pot pics! Because it is HER day.
So, Rihanna, take a big ol' bite of "Birthday Cake," pour the champagne, dust off your shoulders, and celebrate yo' LIFE!! And let us help celebrate your 25th birthday with 25 GIFs of you giving absolutely no f***s!

So, we can all concede that Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie" lyric video (featuring Jay-Z) is the very picture of slick, right? Between all the stylish ties, cuff links, close shaves, pianos, cigars, dapper cars, and whiskey drinks, we now feel slicker than every Bond film ever made (and yes, that includes "Skyfall" -- perhaps the slickest of the Bonds). Funny, we always fancied ourselves decent dressers, but JT's black-and-white, ultra-dapper ode to a nice Tom Ford or Alexander Wang has officially changed our entire perspective on getting dressed in the morning. Tomorrow, we're going all out -- like, BALL GOWN-STYLE. While you wait for that, please don't hesitate to relive Justin Timberlake's beauty routine in our official batch of "Suit & Tie" GIFs, by T. Kyle MacMahon of RealityTVGIFs.tumblr.com.

Looking back at the year in pop music, we're kinda overwhelmed by just how many major moments there were in pop -- everything from K-Pop viral videos to Rihanna "777" airplane anarchy! But you know we're all about rehashing the past -- especially when we can do it in GIF form. (That's how things look in our imaginations, anyway.)
So we got to work creating a comprehensive collection of GIFs that sum up the year in pop music: There's Rihanna "SHAYNING bright" in her stunning "Diamonds" video, Nicki Minaj grinding against Justin Bieber in their "Beauty And A Beat" video, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus (and Rihanna!) going overboard with cake consumption (honestly, when did cake become a thing??), Harry Styles getting borderline inapprops with an inflatable banana in One Direction's "Live While We're Young" video, Psy's now-famous "Gangnam Style," aka the horsey dance heard 'round the world, and so much more.
We learned to lasso imaginary ponies with Psy's "Gangnam Style."
We'll always love you, Whitney Houston! Rest in peace.
Nicki Minaj got SUPER friendly with Cassie in their "The Boys" video... so close that if we smoked, we'd need a cigarette after.

Happy birthday to our Ledgentina!
Guys, guess what day it is...it's Christina Aguilera's 32nd birthday!! Can you believe she's one of those people who's birthday is so close to Christmas that she probably gets DOUBLE presents? (Well, considering that it's Xtina, we're not surprised -- she probably planned it that way from birth.)
We're so proud of everything Christina's accomplished -- which is SO MUCH. Not only has Christina been pouring out hits since 1999's "Genie In A Bottle," but we've been obsessed with her decade-long style transformations (uh, remember "Dirrty" and the subsequent birth of Xtina?). And obviously we've been nothing but obsessed with her comeback album, Lotus, and watching her coach wannabe singers every week on "The Voice." In fact we're SO proud of our Legendtina, that we felt it necessary to make a GIF wall capturing all her iconic music videos. So, let's take a take a trip back into the Christina Aguilera music video vault to relive all her finest teen pop/drrrrty/beautiful/bodylicious moments. Happy birthday, Christina! You are beautiful!

Britney Spears' (and, to be fair, will.i.am's) new "Scream & Shout" video premiered last night during ""The X Factor," and I am absolutely in LOVE. "Scream & Shout" is pure fire, and Britney's parts in the video are, as Britney would say, very cool and amazing. Britney is serving "Ferosha Minimalism" (that's a new term I've coined), and I am living for every second of it. Before I explain with more visuals, let me explain what I mean.
Ferosha: adj: The highest form of flattery in my vocab. Savagely fierce and strong woman, otherwise known as a fierce bitch in heels with an attitude in her strut. (See above.) It's like they took Barbarella, Catwoman, and the red-haired "Toxic" Britney Spears and molded them into one ferosha queen.
Minimalism: noun Extreme simplicity through the use of monochromatic colors, repetition (see above), and basic patterns… and flaming gold disco balls.
… Not to mention she samples one of the best Britney singles of all time, "Gimme More," and reminds us that "It's Britney, bitch!" three times. Everything about this video is Heaven (on Earth).

Christina Aguilera -- or Legendtina, as I so affectionately call her -- debuted her new video today for her latest song, "Your Body," the lead single off her upcoming Lotus album, to be released this November. And while I'm a devout Britney Stan, I actually really really really love this video! Christina manages to be fun and provocative, the styling is beautiful and even aspirational (I'm partial to trailers and convenience stores in a romantic, Americana, Terry Richardson kinda way), and Legendtina's body looks amazing! Now, TO THE GIF WALL, Y'ALL!
