Lady Gaga tells One Direction to F the h8ters (mid-mermaid pose, that is).
Lady Gaga knows a thing or five about ignoring negativity -- she didn't include that "BOOOOO" segment in her 2013 VMA "Applause" performance for nothing! But backstage at the VMAs, we just so happened to overhear Mother Monster taking VMA presenters and "Best Song Of The Summer" winners One Direction under her (creepy, fire-breathing swan) wing and schooling them on how to handle all the h8ters (when she wasn't, you know, showing them her naked butt).

As you've no doubt learned from reading Buzzworthy, part of loving pop music means scoping out its history. That said, there's really no better pop musician to talk to than the mother of all riot grrrl feminists: Kathleen Hanna, aka the founder of left-leaning '90s punk projects like Bikini Kill and Le Tigre, and current frontwoman for The Julie Ruin.
This week, Hanna stopped by Brooklyn's Barclays Center to talk about EVERYTHING girl power-related with Buzzworthy's Tamar Anitai and fellow lady musician and VMAs red carpet correspondent Grimes, where they touched on everything from the all-powerful Beyoncé to the origins of riot grrrl to sexism to politics to pop music in general, plus so much more.

Miley Cyrus is getting TURNT UP in NYC pre-VMAs! I mean, wouldn't you?
If you were Miley Cyrus, and you were about to perform your Best Song Of The Summer-nominated single at the 2013 MTV VMAs, AND you had a whoooole night to kill after rehearsing at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, how would you spend it? If it were us, we'd probably start the night out at a Williamsburg bar, make our way to le clurb or two, hit up a Bushwick loft party (maybe she followed our Brooklyn guide to dating Drake, by the way?), catch our breath with a bite of late-night Roberta's pizza, THEN probably crash at our uptown Manhattan penthouse suite. #ThatsJustUs
But guess what! We don't have to wonder how Miley spent last night -- we have actual physical proof that Miley got TURNT UP and stunted her way through NYC pre-VMAs last night! Thank you, Miley's Twitter account!
Check out more photos of Miley getting turnt up and stunting her way through NYC after the jump.
Because even The Little Engine That Could (Twerk) needs a break from booty-popping once in a while, Miley Cyrus took five from her VMA rehearsals to meet up with the All Access livestream to talk Bangerz, Boo, and ba-how to take the perfect selfie. See? We made it ba-work.
As ardent followers of the "We Can't Stop" singer's social media handles, we were honestly shuh-hocked that her answer was multi-stepped. Like, just look at her past Instagrammed perfection! Didn't you think her "Flawless Selfie How-To" just consisted of: Step 1.) Just be Miley. Step 2.) END OF STEPS. Even more insane is that Miley thinks she's quote "the worst" at taking selfies. GIRL, LOOK AT YOUR #NOFILTER SELF. Well, at least she breaks it down for the rest of us!

Austin Mahone's "I'm nominated for a MTV VMA!?" reaction pic is flawless!
In case you've been wondering when we were gonna drop everything to devote all of our energies toward praising the absolute perfection that is Austin Mahone, NOW IS THAT TIME. Brace yourselves, patient little Mahomies, because we're paying homage to all things Austin because a) DUH, and b) we've gotta celebrate his first-ever Video Music Awards -- which, BTW, includes an Artist To Watch nomination and a spot on the VMA pre-show performance roster alongside Ariana Grande!!!!
To honor the "What About Love" singer's tremendous VMA-related accomplishments, we've compiled the greatest photos, videos, and GIFs illustrating everything he's been up to in the past month to prepare for his game-changing VMA spotlight on Sunday. Also, it never hurts to have a whole bunch o' Austin visuals in one consolidated place -- purely for efficiency's sake! Basically, this post is what our IRL bedroom walls look like. Enjoy.

We had SUCH a blast watching Ariana Grande's interview on last night's VMA all access livestream. I mean, it's not enough that Ariana's set to perform this Sunday at the 2013 MTV VMA pre-show, but she's also hanging out with us and answering all of our die-hard need-to-know questions?!? Including ones about Justin Bieber?! (Excuse me... feeling a little overwhelmed.)
Anyway, we heard a lot of great questions from Ariana studio Stans, but here's one of our faves: "If you could have anybody play you in a movie, who would it be?" You'll never believe her answer -- it's kinda obscure. And only makes us love her more. (Even if she doesn't know the words to A$ap Rocky's "F**kin' Problems.")

Being hot totally sucks, and Mac Miller knows it.
Sadly, today marks the final installment of our "30-Second Thoughts" series featuring our own personal Yoda, sage, and shaman: Mac Miller. In addition to convincing us that it's A-OK to wear a hoodie (with the hood up) in summer, the "Gees" rapper has also talked about peeing in the pool (blue water turned green is ALWAYS a no-no), men wearing Speedos (two words: "Speedo boner"), sipping tropical drinks (the more paper umbrellas, the better), and now, properly regulating your body temperature. Or as we fondly call it: ways to avoid the dreaded sweat mustache.

To sip a tropical drink, or not to sip a tropical drink. THAT IS THE QUESTION.
By now, y'all must be straight SUMMER PROFESSIONALS thanks to Mac Miller's 30-second rants! If you'll recall, as part of our "30-Second Thoughts" series, Mac recently shared his stern summer opinions about everything from peeing in the pool (skip it entirely) to men wearing Speedos (don't do it unless you're being ironic, but even then, just don't). Now, Mac's on deck to share some wise words about sipping tropical drinks. Like a piña colada! Or a mai tai! Or basically anything that would taste better if it came with a colorful paper umbrella!
