After performing "Timber" together for the first time Sunday night at the American Music Awards, Pitbull and Ke$ha released the music video for their song via Pitbull's Facebook page yesterday. And it is SAUCY. Basically, it's kind of like they took two different music and spliced them together to look like one big global party. In the first, Ke$ha has a sexy hoedown in a saloon with a bunch of Coyote Ugly-types, while the second features Pitbull doing a lot of sexy dancing at a pristine beach with a ladyfriend. There's also some stray sharks swimming around, but they aren't very sexy at all.
Miley Cyrus loves her some pasties.

Okay, Miley Cyrus' 21st birthday technically isn't until tomorrow, buuuut she'll need time to sort through these pasties and buy a pair. Pasties have recently become a big part of Miles' ~look~ (IRL and on Halloween), so we figured we'd collect 21 pairs for her as a gift. She doesn't have to wear all (or even any) of these pasties on her birthday, but, if she wants to, she'll have enough for every hour and still have three hours to spare—just sayin'. She has many birthday outfit choices.
There's a lot to take in, so we've divided the pasties into three categories: basic essentials, Miley-centric, and birthday specialties. Now, let's take a look so Miley has time to pick some (or all) of them up!

Demi Lovato arrived at the premiere of Disney's new animated movie, Frozen, wearing one of the year's most popular trends: hair dyed to match the color on the movie's poster. JK, she was wearing an ear cuff! Tucked away under her messy blue bun, was a gold cuff that snaked up her ear and complemented the gold tassels that adorned her black Altuzarra dress. Demi joins Jennifer Lawrence and Cara Delevingne and a grip of other PYTs in the cuff club: these accessories have spread among models, actresses, and musicians and now deserve a major role in the lives of regular peeps (perfect holiday timing, TBH).
Ke$ha’s jewelry collaboration, Kesha Rose by Charles Albert, has been on shelves for a few months now. Any Animal will tell you that it’s totally weird, which is both a compliment and a testament to Ke$ha’s ability to translate her ~unique~ style sensibilities to an entire line of accessories. The pieces are broken up into mini-collections and are stacked with stunning stones, spikes, blue roses (her signature symbol) and penises. Yup, penises. Big, small, on rings, earrings and a necklace, the cartoonish male genitalia is undoubtedly the most *achem* recognizable item in the bunch.
Mariah Carey, gloves, and fan on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

Last summer, Mariah Carey's accessory of
choice necessity was an arm sling for her dislocated shoulder. She had many glamorous sling options, including a feathered one, a lace one, and a rhinestone-encrusted one. Now that she's largely healed, Mariah seems to have traded in one arm accessory for another: gloves.
Mariah appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night to promote her new single, "The Art Of Letting Go," sporting lace and leather driving gloves. While the slings are no longer necessary, Mimi still has nerve damage in her right hand, which is why she's been wearing gloves. She reveals that she likes them, though, and is willing to give them "a moment." Glove makers, prepare yourselves for a rush of feathered glove orders. Have rhinestones on standby, too.
Katy, Miley and Nicki rock Chanel chain belts.

Most people buy belts to help hold up their pants up or cinch their waist in an over-sized outfit. Celebrities, however, are not most people. Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna (see below) have all recently been spotted wearing Chanel chain belts that definitely serve the purpose of #FASHUN over function. I mean, the way these dangling designer links are typically worn—slung low, multi-layered and/or over already snug garments—these “belts” are actually a lot closer to like, really expensive necklaces for your hips.
Of course, no matter how you categorize this particular accessory, it will consistently portrait luxury. A seemingly average outfit is instantly upgraded by the addition of a draped, chain belt and if you happen to have one with those iconic double-c's, well, feel free to flip your hair. (Politely, of course.)
It's only fitting, right? If going sans shirt AND bra is a trend, you have to find some way to cover up your ladylumps given, y'know, laws. Enter pasties. Nicki Minaj used black plus signs to finish off her Fifty Shades of Grey Halloween look while a sparkly purple pasty was integral to Miley Cyrus' "Lil Kim circa the 1999 VMAs" costume.
Lady Gaga in London.

Working in Times Square on Halloween can be confusing, because it’s like, "Oh, look! Everyone’s wandering around in costumes." But wait—are these people in costumes because it’s Halloween, or are they wearing costumes because it’s just another day in Times Square? IDK. Same goes for Lady Gaga. Case and point, the photo above: is she channeling geisha style because it’s ~finally~ Halloween, or is her Asian-ish get-up just another outfit in her over-the-top wardrobe? Again, IDK. But regardless, that giant conch-shaped parasol is pretty great, and we definitely appreciate the nod to "Venus" in the form of a new prop.

Being in London has certainly inspired Lady Gaga to try out some new looks, especially in the head accessory department. The Brits do love their headgear (Royal Wedding fascinators, anyone?), so she's in good company. Last week, we saw her debut a merkin mask, which completely covered her face and head. Then, she took on a more "natural" look, sporting what looked like a corn husk headband. Then, yesterday, on her way into film The Graham Norton Show, she recycled an outfit, wearing a DOPE hat that she also showed off a few weeks prior. How she emerged from filming the show, though, is an entirely different story.

Uh oh, Katycats and Arianators: there's a battle being waged between your two faves for best cat lady! It's no secret that Katy Perry is a huge feline fan (I mean, her fans are named Katycats for a reason), but Ariana Grande has been slowly gaining ground in cat lady land, wearing not one, not two, but three different outfits that she accessorized with cat ears.
Katy arrived in Tokyo wearing her fave print as of late, daisies, a leather jacket, Ray-Bans, and, of course, cat ears. Katy's tiger-striped ears make sense for a number of reasons: 1. she's Mom Cat, 2. the "Roar" video and her performances recently have involved a lot of animal print, 3. she's in Japan and it's OFFICIALLY HALLOWEEN THERE, Y'ALL. Her ears also say "Katy" across them, just in case, y'know, you saw a picture of her and didn't know who she was. It's a gentle reminder so you don't embarrass yourself in front of your friends.
