Songs like "Soul & Body" and "Warning" have played on a continuous loop in my mind since I first heard them at the beginning of the year (I don't even have to physically play their songs on my iPod since they're firmly lodged in my brain, note for note, word for word), and when I got the chance to sit down with the band this past March at the Woodie Awards in Austin (it was brutally hot, even by Texas standards, but that didn't stop Julian Thomas from making a pair of leather pants look both cool and like a good idea), my Air Dubai obsession took flight (har) and manifested itself in a blatant gush-fest dork-out. Yo, I never said I was cool.

Thirty Seconds To Mars discuss sex versus power in their Love Lust Faith + Dreams lyrics.
By now you've had a little over 24 hours to sit with Thirty Seconds To Mars' LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS album, a grandiose, thunderous, transcendental, at times hallucinogenic, nakedly vulnerable adrenaline-fueled romp through the deepest corners of human desire. The deepest corners that can be reached by aggressive synths, roaring choruses, and gut-wrenching catharses, the likes of which haven't resonated on an album so powerfully since, oh, I don't know, Bono stood atop the Republic Liquor Store on the corner of 7th and Main in downtown Los Angeles and belted out "Where The Streets Have No Name."
And speaking of vulnerably naked and reaching deep corners... (good transition, huh?) I had a frank discussion with Thirty Seconds To Mars about the new album and one of its four main tenants: lust. I didn't mean for it to turn into sex, but somehow it just did. We've all been there, right?

Did you know that MKTO is obsessed with Cool Ranch Dorito Tacos? WELL, NOW YOU DO!
Electro-pop/hip-hop/R&B outfit MKTO (that's singer Tony Oller and rapper Malcolm David Kelley) met on the set of TeenNick's "Gigantic" and have been IRL BFFs and musical collaborators ever since. Thanks to their bangin' single "Thank You" (think a perfect blend of Chiddy Bang, Wallpaper., and a smidge of Outasight), the boys have been on our radar for well over a minute, and during that time, we got, how shall we say... A LITTLE CURIOUS. So of COURSE we arranged for a little tête-à-tête with MKTO so we could find about about all the things they're obsessed with: things like Cool Ranch Dorito tacos from Taco Bell, totally weird socks, and "Family Guy."

Watch 3OH!3 discuss their music supervisor role on MTV's "The Real World: Portland."
We'd trust electropop masters 3OH!3 with ANY DJ job, whether it's for a super-slick bar mitzvah or our very own wedding (but preferably our wedding). With such explosive club-ready tracks like the Ke$ha-assisted "My First Kiss" and "Set You Free," the Boulder, CO duo have just DJ'd their biggest party yet -- on MTV's "The Real World: Portland," to be exact. (No pressure or anything.) Yep, 3OH!3, aka BFFs Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte, were your official music supervisors on tonight's episode of "The Real World," spinning tracks like "Die Finks" by The Swayback, "Beer Run" by Thanks For Everything, and the duo's very own "Back To Life."

Demi drew some VERY naughty pics on "Live From MTV."
We're sure you all you Lovatics remembered to watch, but just in case, we'll bring you up to speed: Yesterday Demi Lovato stopped by MTV for an exclusive "Live From MTV" interview where she chatted about everything from her new album,Demi, to working with Cher Lloyd and her friendship with Selena Gomez. Then things took a turn for the dirty once the interview hit a segment called "Demi Draws," where the "Heart Attack" singer was supposed to hand-draw a title from her new album (kinda like iPad Pictionary), and fans could guess the song's name based on her clues. Everything went according to plan at first -- Demi picked a folded-up piece of paper from a jar, started drawing.... and, wait, DEMI, WHAT DID YOU JUST DRAW?? THAT'S NOT WHAT A "NIGHTINGALE" LOOKS LIKE. (Unless the song "Nightingale" is just a phallic euphemism for...oh God... I think my innocence is ruined.)
Watch Demi Lovato play "Demi Draws" and "Kittyoke" after the jump.

Watch Tegan and Sara discuss their music supervisor role on MTV's "Awkward."
Synth-pop players Tegan and Sara are unofficial experts on angst-ridden, #sadz songs (just listen to "Nineteen," "I Was A Fool," and "Walking With A Ghost"). True, their Heartthrob material has taken a cheerier turn since previous albums like So Jealous and The Con, but as they say, the song remains the same -- the poppier the sisters get, the gloomier their lyrics go. So it seems fateful that Tegan and Sara should be picked to guest music supervise an episode of MTV's "Awkward," a show that's about, well, feeling awkward in high school.
