Katy Perry hugged a Smurf(ette)!
Looking at this photo of Katy Perry hugging a Smurf (ummmm, that's Smurfette for any "I'm more of a 'Pokémon' person" nerds out there) reallly makes us want to be 8 years old again so we can wake up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons and scarf down Pop-Tarts. And sure, Katy's Smurf-themed photo might be a few days old (taken on April 22, to be exact), but who cares!? It's our happy place this week! Because sometimes being an adult is sooo exhausting, and all you want do is look at pretty pop stars hugging Smurfs to know that all is right with the world.
The "Part Of Me" singer was snapped hugging Smurfette, whom she voices in the upcoming "The Smurfs 2" (coming to theaters in July), during a movie photo call at the fifth-annual Summer of Sony event in Cancun, Mexico. You really gotta love how Katy honored her role in "The Smurfs 2" by wearing a matching chic blue outfit (girl can rock blue anything -- even hair), but to be honest we're getting kinda worried about that poor person who had to spend the day inside of that (what we imagine is not-so-ventilated) Smurf costume. Maybe they're introducing a new character: "Sweaty Smurf"? Ew.

No one ever said it was easy being a pop star. Sure, there's the obvious glitz, glamour, and gratis clothes, food, and shampoo (i.e. EVERYTHING'S FREE WHEN YOU HAVE MONEY), but too often do we forget the ugly side of a pop star's life: getting followed around by noxious paparazzi cameras, unrealistic expectations of perfection, nitpicking press criticism, people like us charting your rise and fall, not even being able to so much as enjoy a 15-minute doughnut break without being overrun by hoards of screaming fans, and sometimes getting busted for a little weed on your tour bus. (And to that we say, after all Justin Bieber has done for us, LET THE GUY HAVE A LITTLE DIME BAG, OK? JEEZE.) All that's gotta wear on a person, right? Especially when they've been famous for most of their adult life? And how do we know when things are REALLY bad? Like, when does harmless birthday clubbing, fashion gas masks, and shirt removal turn into a full-fledged, head-shaving meltdown? Well, prepare to find out in MTV's "The Meltdown Index," starring Britney Spears and Justin Bieber, two impossibly world-famous pop stars, each with their own strain of "whoopsie" moments and career gaffes. Click on the image to enlarge!
Now presenting: the Justin Bieber/Britney Spears Meltdown Index.
Pierce The Veil take us behind the scenes of their "Bulls In The Bronx" video.
From the creepy kids in "Chemical Kids And Mechanical Brides" to doing their best Bonnie and Clyde impression in "King For A Day," San Diego hardcore outfit Pierce The Veil have topped themselves time and again with their high-concept, cinematic videos. That's why these photos from the set of their "Bulls In The Bronx" video, off their Collide With The Sky LP, have us speculating SO HARD. What could they possibly be doing? We think they may be dancing? What?! Like, not swinging arms and jump-kick dancing, but, like, choreographed dancing?
Check out more behind-the-scenes photos of Pierce The Veil's "Bulls In The Bronx" video shoot after the jump.
Justin Bieber is straight STUNTIN' in his red onesie.
Did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed this a.m.? Well, FEAR NOT! We've got the remedy for all that ails you today, and it comes in the form of Justin Bieber straight STUNTIN' in a red onesie (fingers crossed for an incoming twerk video) outside his hotel in Stockholm, Sweden! And, while we can't confirm this, there IS a possibility that Justin could be rocking a ONE DIRECTION ONESIE! Because let's not forget that we live in a world where red 1D jumpsuits actually exist!
Check out more photos of Justin Bieber in a onesie after the jump.
Whatever Frank Ocean's saying at the Time 100 Gala has Justin Timberlake in STITCHES
We TOTALLY hate being left out of a good joke, so we really want in on whatever Frank Ocean said to make Justin Timberlake laugh THAT hard at the gala for Time's 100 Most Influential in the World. Maybe Frank and Justin were trading stories about performing on "Saturday Night Live"? It's also possible that they were giggling with glee over just how stacked their bank accounts are. ORRR maybe musicians as talented as them just sit around laughing for no good reason -- because they CAN! Isn't life funny when you've got endless talent and access to EVERYTHING?
Frank and Justin were snapped sharing a funny moment at the Time 100 Gala at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. Not only did Justin and Frank nail their "Suit & Tie" ensembles, but they were also honored at the event and brushed shoulders with other talented big deals in the music biz such as Christina Aguilera and Miguel. And while we're happy that Frank and Justin spent some time telling each other knock-knock jokes or whatever, we reallly hope they spent part of the evening discussing a possible future collabo?! Just IMAGINE!!

RIGHT: Blank canvas Justin Bieber on April 16, and LEFT: Justin's new tattoo on April 24.
If anyone's gone a little nutso over Justin Bieber's breakup with Selena Gomez, it's us. Obviously we want the best for Biebs and Selena, but just when we had finally reached the last step in the grieving process, last weekend we heard a little something about Selena flying to Oslo, Norway, to meet up with her ex on his "Believe" tour AND taking a (now deleted) romantic selfie. Obviously this has unraveled all of our Justin/Selena-breakup resolve, and has sent us into a crazy-eyed maelstrom of "ARE THEY OR AREN'T THEY?," WHY, GOD??," and "WHERE DID WE PUT THE MALLOMARS?" And we thought that was bad -- now we're reeling past the point of Mallomars with this picture of Justin rocking, wait for it... a Selena Gomez- looking tattoo on his wrist. Two tats below the owl, to be exact.
First off, we need to ask just what IS it these days with celebs tattooing faces of their significant others onto their bodies (I'm looking at you, Amber Rose)? What ever happened to name/initial tattoos? Second, you might be saying, "But it might not necessarily be Selena..." Maybe it's his sister, Jazmyn. Well, we're no art appraisers, but this ink stamp does have the same look and feel as Selena's July 2012 Elle photo, right down to the cleavage. Anyway, we feel like it's our job to say the obvious thing, which is that if ex sex is bad, then ex tattoos are almost certainly the absolute worst. But, hey, if Justin and Selena's (rumored) latest go-around doesn't work out, he could always say it's an angel. Or a take on Petunia from "The Adventures Of Pete & Pete." Or the Starbucks mermaid logo! See? Silver linings.

Miley Cyrus selfie'd her Google+ chat with will.i.am, and THIS is why technology's amazing.
Miley Cyrus has accomplished the ultimate: she's taken a selfie of a selfie! OK, technically she's taken a photo of herself on a Google+ video hangout with will.i.am for his #willpower album live chat celebration. But Miley's all about breaking boundaries in every other arena (see: Miley's "Twerk in a Unicorn Onesie" trend), so it seems appropriate to congratulate her on this photographic feat. Oh, and leave it to Miley to actually look stunning in one of those video chats things. (We always look like we have a bazillion extra chins.)
The "Ashtrays And Heartbreaks" singer documented her Google Hangout sesh on Twitter (where Britney Spears and Nicole Scherzinger also dropped in!) with the caption, "Gettin ready to live chat with @iamwill." Now, while most of our video chats consist of making hilarz faces at friends, Miley and Will got right down to business. During the hangout, she talked about the process of their collabo track, "Fall Down," and how she honored she was to work with the Black Eyed Peas member. But things got EVEN MORE EPIC when will.i.am dropped major hints about Miley's solo new tunes, saying, "...She has redefined everything you have thought about Miley Cyrus... This new Miley stuff...It's so freaking... This is some amazing incredibleness." PLEASE STOP TEASING US and hook us up already!!!

Rihanna grabbing her crotch? It must be Wednesday!
Ask yourselves this, friends: Are you even the least bit shocked by the title of this post? Or the entire concept of Rihanna taking a crotch-grabbing selfie last night in NYC? Sure, if we swapped Rihanna's name with, say, Demi Lovato's, you might be like, WTF IS UP?! But Rihanna? The girl who owns these Prada boots? And who wore THIS fur headdress...with nothing else? Nope, it's just your run-of-the-mill "Crotch-Grab Rihanna Wednesday"!
It's not Ri's first time grabbing a handful of, well, herself, either. The "Stay" singer once did the ol' "self boob grab" at a show in Toronto last month, and you know what? More power to her! Don't even try to front -- if you looked like Rihanna, wouldn't you snap one or two or 70 sexy selfies and share them with the world? At least when Rihanna's (kind of) wrinkly at at age 90 (because Goddess pop stars don't wrinkle like the rest of us), she can scroll through her Instagram (if it still exists!) and say, DAYUM I WAS FOINE. Grab on, lady!

Kim and Kanye look SLIGHTLY miffed in NYC.
Doesn't it feel like KIIIND of a minute since we've seen Kanye West and Kim Kardashian together? We recently saw Kim when she introduced Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It" performance at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, but we haven't documented an "AWWWW look at Kimye!!" or an "AWWWW look at Kimye and and the growing baby bump!!" moment since the duo twerked their black-and-white cookie ensemble at Paris Fashion Week. Yeah, well, the torturous "Kimye April Drought" ends now, because the parents-to-be were snapped in NYC yesterday while en route to their hotel! But do you see their faces? They are NOT AMUSED.
On the other hand, it's not like Kimye has ever been THAT smiley. They looked pretty serious when they wore matching "his and hers" nautical Halloween costumes and looked plenty grim that time they wore matching cape coats. But we gotta know... why the frowns?? Think about it: One-half of you is currently gestating the one and only baby who might give Blue Ivy a run for her money in the "dopest baby alive" department, not to mention the fact that if you wanted to, you could fully afford to house said baby in a diamond-encrusted crib. So try smiling, bbs! Life is GOOD.

An eternally young Avril Lavigne pounds some cotton candy!
Avril Lavigne wasn't kidding around with her new song, "Here's To Never Growing Up." Here's photographic evidence of her celebrating Peter Pan syndrome with a giant thing of cotton candy! Have you ever seen an "all-grown-up" adult look that free-spirited while eating a celery stick? NOPE. Part of us wants to scream: "Avril, do you even know how much sugar is in that stuff!?!" But then there's the other part that wants to eat only cotton candy for dinner because IT'S SO GOOD. We're gonna follow our heart (and stomach) and go for the latter. #YOLO
The "How You Remind Me" singer shared her cotton candy-themed photo on Twitter along with the caption, "Cotton Candy B****es!" While we're totally happy that Avril's relaxing with a sugary treat, we're mostly wondering where she got it?! It's not like they sell cotton candy at the grocery store. (Unless grocery stores stock it in Canada?! Over-the-counter cotton candy!?) So does this mean that Avril's at a circus or carnival? OR did she and her fiancé Chad Kroeger get a cotton candy maker as an early wedding gift (BEST WEDDING GIFT IDEA EVER, btw)!? Sigh... We already knew there were a gazillion perks to being a famous pop star -- we'll just have to add "eating cotton candy whenever you want" to the list.
