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."

Mac Miller becomes a caped crusader in his new "S.D.S." video.
Is Mac Miller trading his "Most Dope Family" for "The Avengers"? Nah, that would never happen -- not when his family just got renewed for a second season on MTV2! We'd only suggest something like that because in his new video for the Flying Lotus-produced "S.D.S.," which stands for "Somebody Do Something," Mac learns that with great power comes great responsibility -- and some pretty rad perks. Like being able to fly with your adorable bulldog as your sidekick.

Ariana Grande flirts with Mac Miller in their "The Way" collabo video.
How's that for speedy service? Just when we were like, "OMFG we are fully digging this Ariana Grande and Mac Miller 'The Way' collabo, where is the video???" -- it appears! And only a day later, too. Honestly, it couldn't have come sooner, because we were getting a liiiiitle bored of wondering whether or not Mac was gonna try out some of his "Love Lessons" on Ariana. Well, he totally did, and they TOTALLY WORKED. Also, what better day is there to premiere your music video than the day after your song snagged the No. 1 spot on the iTunes chart?! It's a Passover miracle!

Nickelodeon no more! Ariana Grande is pop's latest newcomer.
So, Ariana Grande! She's kind of quietly slaying the pop music game, and we think it's time to shout her out for it. Sure, you probably recognize Ariana's GORGEOUS face from her starring role as Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon's "Victorious" OR perhaps from Justin Bieber's "Die In Your Arms" video. (You might also know her as the lucky lady who used to date our No. 1 face crush, Australian MTV star Jai Brooks). Finally, we're sure you remember "Popular Song," Ariana's theatrical collaboration with Mika. Now, Ariana's calling on Mac Miller for an assist on the sultry "The Way," which, by the way (PUN INTENDED! We're so clever), currently holds the No. 1 spot on the iTunes chart.

So who better to help you step up your romance game than Mac?
In his "Love Lessons With Mac Miller" video, Mac reveals the secret to an unforgettable Valentine's night where romance, elegance, and intimacy abound, starting with... shawarma and ending with a sexual eruption.

Mac Miller chronicles his crazy life in "Mac Miller And The Most Dope Family."
While most of us have to make new friends when we change cities, Mac Miller isn't most people -- he's invited his entire crew from Pittsburgh to move with him to Los Angeles in the new MTV2 series "Mac Miller And The Most Dope Family." And how are Mac's "Most Dope Family" members adjusting to their West Coast surroundings? Well, Peanut, Quentin, Dave, and Jimmy spend a lot of time tearing ish up (TVs in particular), partying, playing pranks, hanging with other rappers like Macklemore and Tyler, The Creator, vomiting, and occasionally working. (You know, if they have the time.)
