Watch Ciara and Nicki Minaj's colorful "I'm Out" lyric video.
Thinking about Ciara and Nicki Minaj together in a video is, like, A VERY FUN EXPERIENCE! Perhaps one where you might get "Super Turnt Up," even? Because aside from, well, immense sex appeal, we forsee tons of smoky eyes, big hair, tight abs, and maybe even some cleavage (i.e. a "Body Party"). And, while we don't yet have access to the girls' official "I'm Out" video, we DO have a neon-colored lyric video for you to watch, and that's just gonna have to suffice for now.

Joey Bada$$ gets hyper-lyrical on the '90s-nodding "95 Til Infinity."
Joey Bada$$ may not remember much of the '90s (he was born in '95), but he is undeniably a '90s child. Just look at songs like "Unorthodox," "Wendy N Becky," and "Underground Airplay": Each track sounds like it came straight from the era of The Notorious B.I.G., 2Pac, slap bracelets, and "Seinfeld."
Now, on his new song, "95 Til Infinity," a direct nod to Souls of Mischief's "93 Til Infinity," Joey destroys a floaty, spacey beat that would also fit in perfectly with Buzzfeed's favorite decade. Lace up your L.A. Lights or British Knights, folks. It's a '90s party!

Alicia Keys has a split personality in her "Tears Always Win" video.
Alicia Keys has been bringing the DRA-MA these days! And nope, I don't mean the Amanda Bynes variety, but rather the kind that features Alicia playing to frenzied, sold-out crowds in her "New Day" video, basically hooking up with Maxwell in her "Fire We Make" video (sorry, Swizz!), and now, rocking a glitzy, Vegas-style headdress in her "Tears Always Win" video. Seriously, at this rate, we wouldn't be surprised if Alicia played FLOTUS next month.

Meet Rihanna's money dress!
First came Justin Bieber's EPIC money-lined pants, and now we'd like to introduce you to Rihanna's ABSOLUTELY PERFECT dollar-themed halter dress! And OK, we're calling "late pass" on this juuuust a little, since as we learned from our pals at MTV Style, Ri's been rocking this money dress for the majority of her "Diamonds World Tour." And don't we all agree that a holographic money dress deserves to be written about OVER AND OVER?
Plus, it has to be said: We assumed that if Rihanna was going to wear ANYTHING green-colored, it'd be echoing another green thing entirely. Think: marijuana bride-green. Guess we can still be surprised!

Bed head? Austin Mahone? NEVER.
This just in: Austin Mahone's most recent selfie may prove that he has in fact achieved the most perfect bed head ever. (That is, if he didn't spend an hour in front of the mirror applying 30-some odd hair products, then jump back into bed like nothing happened. Which we're guessing he didn't do.) So, not only is Austin musically talented and stylish, but he's also insatiably adorbz the instant he wakes up!! Mila Kunis (aka Austin's dream girl) is one LUCKY woman. Well, that is if they ever actually meet.

Citizen get grunged out in their new video, for "The Summer."
Just when we thought they'd run out of musical genres to smash together, an inventive band comes along and surprises us. We should probably learn to expect that going forward. So it goes with Citizen, whose new video, for "The Summer," is definitely, without a doubt, the year's best grunge-core track. (Granted, there are only a few existing grunge-core songs, but we love it anyway.)

Hilary Duff sitting on an Alice In Chains bench is just BEGGING to be Photoshopped...
You know something? We NEVER would have pegged former Disney starlet and new mom Hilary Duff as an Alice In Chains fan. I mean, we say that for all of the obvious reasons -- most Alice In Chains Stans tend to be on the testosterone-y side. Like, lots of flannel, long hair, '90s nostalgia, and maybe some pent-up authority issues. But now that we're seeing Hilary chilling on an Alice In Chains-emblazoned bus bench in Los Angeles, we're starting to question, like, EVERYTHING. Is the sky really blue? Did we really eat cereal for breakfast this morning? Does Pad Thai taste good? Or, maybe we should just blurt out a signature Keanu Reeves "WHOA." Because that's all we can do -- stare dumbly at the computer screen with a blank, derp-y expression.

Katy Perry fights crime with wig-wearing cats in her new Popchips commercial! NO BIGGIE.
Lately whenever we see Katy Perry, it's usually her looking the very picture of radiant and composed. Now, in her new Popchips ad, she's definitely still "radiant," but Katy's rocking QUITE another look -- one that is, how shall we say, head-to-toe PURPLE SPANDEX. ENOUGH SAID. But actually, not really, because did we mention that Katy's also chilling with a team of adorable talking cats? Who are wearing wigs??? Clearly someone is looking down on us today and saying, "LET'S MAKE YOUR DAY A LITTLE EXTRA SPECIAL."
