Rita Ora shows off her grill.

And (see above) we do not mean "for her patio at an end-of-summer sale!" Although, I wouldn't really be mad if that was the news and Rita Ora wanted to invite me over for a cook-out. Just sayin'. Patio grills are exciting, too. (I’ll bring the buns.) But, as per the photo, Ora got a grill for her TEETH and debuted it on Instagram today while #bored and #inameeting (so say the photo's captions). Personally, we prefer to doodle in those situations so that it at least looks like you’re taking notes, but then again, we also don’t have a new grill (or an old one, for that matter) to show off to our 1.5 million followers. So, carry on, Rita!

If we’ve seemed at all out of sorts lately, it’s because we’ve really been struggling to fill a huge void in our lives—but fear not! Because that void is about to be refilled. Collectively, the Jonas Brothers have been AWOL for the past few months—and while we understand that they can’t do everything together all the time, it’d be a lot easier for us to keep track of their handsome mugs (and avoid future life-voids) if they just stayed in the same place. Forever. We’ve got a whole lot of love for plenty of other boy bands out there, but the JoBros are special. The JoBros are, well, BROS. And there’s something pretty presh about keeping harmonies in the family. (Also because, eyebrows.)
So, when we got word that Joe, Kevin and Nick would all be appearing on the cover of FAULT Magazine’s Fall 2013 issue at the same time AND talking about their new album, V, we swooned SO hard—like, right here at our desks. It was basically like watching a bunch of really stylish dominoes topple over in graceful succession. (FYI: No one was injured in said swooning.) Once we recovered, we peeped some shots from their “illumination”-themed shoot, and then we swooned again. JK we just squealed really loud instead because HI, they’re hot.
If you live on this planet ("Hi! I'm Earth. Have we met?"), there's a chance you may have heard by now that Miley: The Movement, airs tonight. *SQUEAL* It's basically gonna be like Christmas, but with more twerking, less wreaths and like, a TON of tongue. ICYMI, Miley Cyrus, Queen of Can't Stop/Won't Stop, has had a pretty may-jah year, so we thought it only fitting to pay tribute to the artist-formerly-known-as Hannah Montana with the sincerest form of flattery: Halloween costumes, DUH. Oh. What? You thought all the foam fingers would be sold-out by now? YOU THOUGHT WRONG. (Go. Buy. Now.) And BTW, you won't find any pre-packaged costumes here. NEWP. *hair flip* We decided to get RULL creative to help you put together your favorite Miley moment: from that VMAs performance to one of the first times we saw her twerk (in a unicorn onesie, no less) and even alllll the way back to the vintage Miley days of The Disney Channel—we are hookin' you up with some super-sweet outfits that will a.) provoke jealousy b.) get people talking and c.) prahhhbably rile up the Parents Television Council. So, you're welcome.
MILEY CYRUS' NUDE VMAS PERFORMANCE OUTFIT

You've seen it, you know it, you love it and you totes don't get what all the fuss was about. When Miley ripped off her fuzzy-wuzzy wuz a leotard on stage at the 2013 VMAs, gasps echoed through the crowd. It was awesome. Cyrus rocked a nude, latex two-piece and white platform sneakers for the second part of her performance, and chose to accessorize the look with a simple, now-infamous foam finger. But don't stress! We get it—not everyone has the cajones to be quite as ~bold~ as Miley, so we tried to achieve her VMAs look with a little more, um, coverage. The mesh panel on this pale-colored bodysuit gives the illusion of belly-bearing, without having to worry about like, doing crunches and stuff.The matching gym shorts allow you to go about your trick-or-treating without showing everyone your booty and the bright red lipstick will make sure that your words stand out in a crowd. (As if the foam finger won't do that already.)

Attention all BARBZ, near and far! Sound the trumpets, ring the alarm and bow down to Her Minajesty! *bows down* For she hath arrived and she comes bearing gifts. (OK, it’s actually just one gift, but there are so many gifts inside this gift that it’s more like a Russian nesting doll of gifts.) Finally, after months of sneak peeks and Instagrammed stills, the FULL commercial for Nicki Minaj’s newest fragrance, Minajesty, is HERE! *throws confetti* Minaj debuted the 30-second spot last night and, as expected, it’s “gag century” (translation: amazing).
We first see our queen in the forest, wearing that now-familiar voluminous pink gown, a huge head of hair and RULL heavy looking chain-link jewelry. Behind Ms. Minaj, who holds a dove, is a super-stately looking white horse that could also maybe be a unicorn? There’s no obvious horn to be seen, but I mean, just look at the mist in that forest. Magic is happening, people. And where magic happens, unicorns will soon follow. At least that’s what the stories tell me.

BARBZ! Hold on to your braless shirts, because the news is about to get meta. First things first, let’s rehash some facts:
1.) Nicki Minaj is a fan of Herve Leger. Big time. We know this because:
a. Those bathing suits.
b. That front-row worthy black-and-white harnessed dress. (Point of interest: Harnesses are still happening, but they are NOT for the faint of heart.)
c. Those leather jogging pants. (That apparently Kanye was actually the first to create, ICYMI.)
Etc., etc. and so forth. Basically, there’s nary a bandage-garment that Nicki’s curves didn’t like, and it seems as if the feeling is mutual. (Aww, love!)
Iggy Azalea covers 'Paper' magazine.
In between the VMAs and performing and making ALL of the rounds at ALL of the Fashion Weeks (for realsies), Iggy Azalea somehow managed to find the time to pose for the latest issue of Paper magazine. We’ve seen her rock a LOT of looks since she first twerked onto the scene—from Bollywood dancer to trailer park renegade to high rollin’ showgirl to bootlicious Bettie Page (is anyone else sweating trying to keep up?)—but this grunge goth steez she’s sportin’ on the cover of Paper’s “Nightlife” issue? This is brand spankin’ new and we hate it. JK, WE LOVE IT. But seriously, we love it. She is channeling Sky Ferreira x vintage Courtney Love in a major way and it is giving us LIFE. It’s no wonder that the 23-year-old Australian rapper is doing ‘90s right, though. Her fuzzy plaid cardigan, leopard-splattered dress, dot tights, belt and tiny pearl strands are ALL courtesy of Hedi Slimane and Saint Laurent. (Who, duh, just happen to count both Ferreira and Love as muses.)
You know those days when you tear out everything in your closet, only to end up wearing the very first thing you tried on? Well, if you’re Beyonce, you get to do that with your hair. #JEALLY Not that we blame her, of course. I mean, the woman has essentially dedicated multiple dance moves to the art of dramatic hair-whipping, so it makes total sense that she’d want to bring back the length. Also, she can do whatever she wants because she is the KING/KWEEN and we would bow down on bended knee regardless of her ‘do. (But TBH, her head rolls just would not be the same with a pixie, AMIRITE? Althooough, she would be a lot less likely to get her curls stuck in a fan. Just sayin’. #SAFETYFIRST)
Take me to your tacos.

Here’s what we like about tacos: Everything. Seriously, there’s nothing bad about tacos. I dare you to name one thing. Other than when the hard corn shell sometimes cracks and splays your taco insides everywhere. That sucks. But that doesn’t count, so name one more thing that’s bad about tacos. *hums Jeopardy theme* See? You can’t do it. If you make them the right way, you can pretty much hit up every single food group within a single taco. Can sushi do that? Nope. Can hamburgers do that? Nope. Can pizza do that? OK pizza can also probably do that, but today we’re talking about tacos. And in honor of tacos (hard AND soft), we’ve rounded up a slew of the most tasty taco gear around. Break out the guac, y’all!

YAAS! Looks like Britney Spears has been heeding her own advice because she is doing WERQUE, y’all. The Princess of Pop debuted a teaser from her video for “Work B****” on Instagram today, and HELLOOO LUXURY BIKINIS! The promo clip opens up with Britney looking RULL fierce at the edge of a pool, accompanied by a bevy of leather-clad dancers with knee-high stiletto boots, long-sleeved, zip-up bodysuits and shiny silver masks that you just KNOW Lady Gaga is dying to get her hands on (and probs Kanye, too). But let’s focus on what’s really important here: BRITNEY’S BIKINIS.
