Only Beyoncé could make a bathrobe look like terry cloth couture.
Are y'all seeing this? Yep, it's Beyoncé in a plain white bathrobe! BUT the above photo is also Bey WERQUING A BATHROBE like it's one of her gazillion fashion statements. Think about every time you've put on one of those oversized puffy robe things. Did you look like "Goddess of the Spa" Bey? Probably not. If you're anything like us, then you probably looked like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in "Ghostbusters." But that's OK! Just chalk this moment up to another thing Beyoncé wins at in life.
The "Back To Black" singer shared the photo of her hanging out backstage on Instagram with the caption "Manchester y'all ready!" We love following every tiny aspect of Beyoncé's "Mrs. Carter World Tour" (especially when she unveils new songs), but can we also say that being on Beyoncé's road crew must be such an amazing gig? Especially when you get see THE BAWSE walking around in a laid-back robe? If we were employed by B, we'd be SO relieved that there were occasional causal Fridays as well as mandatory rhinestone nipple uniforms. WAIT... only Beyoncé gets to wear bedazzled sexiness to the office?! Oh, that's JUST. NOT. FAIR!

Lana Del Rey channels Daisy Buchanan in her new "Young And Beautiful" video.
Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" film adaptation has hit the big screen, so it makes sense that he'd tap Lana Del Rey -- the pop game's Daisy Buchanan -- to release a video for the soundtrack. Her offering, "Young and Beautiful," finds Del Rey channeling some of the film's spirit and the era's fragile glamour.

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."

HAIM team up with Leonard Friend for a brand-new "Falling" remix (and video).
Los Angeles indie rock sister act HAIM seem kind of in love with everything retro, and frankly we're still reeling from their '90s R&B meets Fleetwood Mac single, "Falling." So it's probably a good idea that the 2013 mtvU Woodies performers would team up with R&B-pop singer-producer Alex Feder, aka Leonard Friend, to remix their highly addictive single, which comes newly packaged with auditory references to Zapp, Phil Collins, and TLC. (What, no Fleetwood?). Oh, AND there's a groovy (that's a purposeful adjective -- you'll see why in a second) new music video to match!

A little bit of Riffraff, a little bit of Estelle -- and Ke$ha's golden (girl)!
We're no stranger to Ke$ha's, ahem, IMPRESSIVE fashion sense. We've seen our glitter goddess look like everything from a goth hippie flower child at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards to Uncle Sam glam, to, well, looking kind of normal. We've also seen her befriend the furry community AND the Illuminati, and we've heard all about her penis dreams in her new MTV docu-series, "Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life." Basically, Ke$ha will never not surprise us. Until this morning, that is, when we woke up to some behind-the-scenes photos from the set of her new "Crazy Kids" video, and, oh man... where to start? Ke$ha, is that you? Or did you just shape-shift into a Riff Raff/Estelle Getty alien hybrid?

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!

Kyle Andrews is all about the good times in his new track, "The Way To Wonder."
Nashville's Kyle Andrews, an indie pop player since 2006, not only has an obvious knack for next-level infectious melodies, but he's somehow mastered the art of hooks with a sound so unshakably happy, it could even make Debbie Downer crack a smile. In terms of sound, Kyle's style lands somewhere between the whimsy of fun., the plucky pitter-patter of Good Old War, and the vocal expressiveness of Conor Oberst. But unlike Mr. Oberst, Kyle has no malaise to speak of, and his predilection towards pure, no-holds-barred ebullience is currently on full display in "The Way To Wonder," the lead single off of his forthcoming album, Brighter Than The Sun.

Look deep into Jared Leto's beautifully symmetrical eyes...
Getting stared at by some random creepster while waiting in line at Starbucks is usually weird as EFF, but when Jared Leto stares at us, it's totally legit! So don't EVEN try to fight the above photo. Just let the Thirty Seconds To Mars singer's eyeballs look straight into your soul. Oh, that warm tingling feeling is completely normal -- it's what we feel EVERY SINGLE TIME we see a photo (especially shirtless ones) of Jared. We're just REALLY glad Jared has his eyebrows back, because an eyebrow-less Jared would make this staring contest SO much weirder (because, you know, it wasn't weird enough already).
The "Up In The Air" singer shared his photo on Instagram along with the caption "Boo." Wait... is this picture supposed to scare us? We'll readily admit that Jared chasing down a GIGANTIC spider scares us. We can also confidently say that Jared getting a severed ear in the mail TERRIFIES US. But this selfie of the rock star giving us an effortless "I'm staring so deep into your life force, can you feel it?" look does not freak us out one bit. OK, maybe one little thing makes us uncomfortable: WHY DOES JARED NEVER AGE!? Is he using the power of his stare to suck the youth out of us?! Meh, with those eyes, we'd be sort of completely OK with that.
