If you're anything like me, every time you hear Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It," you have the hook stuck in your head for DAYS. Suffice it to say, it's been basically half-a-week since Selly did her thang on the Billboard stage, and I'm STILL muttering "nananana"s under my breath in the middle of conversations. I'm sure you've been playing the music video on endless repeat (just as I have at my desk), and I'm pretty confident the general consensus among all who set eyes on the clip is that this new, grown-up look is a good one on Selena. The maturity of her "Come & Get It" steez is due in part to excellent risk-taking couture but is mostly thanks to that KILLER bright red lipstick.
Ke$ha on 'My Crazy Beautiful Life.'
We have to say, there's certainly no shortage of exciting moments on Ke$ha's My Crazy Beautiful Life. I mean, so far we've uncovered the story behind her oh-so-infamous shark mask AND found out that she wears American flag onesies in her down time (the same one as Justin Bieber, nonetheless). But last night, we got to see behind-the-scenes footage of one of Ke$ha's biggest beauty moments in the past few years--the shaving of her head! GASP.
Rita Ora debuts blue hair.

Well, looks like Katy Perry's not the only one pumped up for the new Smurfs 2 movie this summer! Rita Ora's feeling blue, too— but rather than dressing in head-to-toe cerulean like our girl KP, Rita took cues from Katy circa 2012 and dyed her HAIR. Fresh off her gorgeous Met Ball appearance earlier this month, where she rocked a custom Thakoon gown, the pop star showed off her new blue 'do on Instagram earlier today. She blasted out two photos of the bold look this morning, saying "Today it's smurf day #rehearsals #album2 #bluehairday". Wait, so in addition to a brand new haircolor, Rita's ALSO prepping her new album?! We.Cant.Wait.
Whew, we don't know about you guys, but we're already dreaming about the three-day weekend ahead. In case you forgot, next Monday is Memorial Day, which means we have a few extra hours to soak in the sun and do one of our FAVORITE holiday pastimes (other than shopping)—eating. Don't judge! We all know that we'll spend the majority of our day off standing next to the grill stuffing our faces with some of our favorite meaty treats: hot dogs, hamburgers—you name it, we'll eat it. To celebrate this joyous
feast occasion, we found some BBQ-themed nail art to get you stylishly in the mood for this weekend's festivities. Warning: drooling may occur.
Dang, if there's one thing we love fresh off the grill, it's a cheeseburger complete with ALL the fixings. Luckily, there's a mani that can reflect any meat-lover's dream: super gratuitous close-ups of burgers painted on each finger. Make sure to include the sesame bun, ketchup, lettuce and cheese! (Extra points if you make it drippy.)
A sneak peek of COVERGIRL's new 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' campaign!

The countdown to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is ON, you guys! You already know how we've been keeping close tabs on all the amazing fashion stuff surrounding book number two in the trilogy, from dishing on the character poster outfits to discovering the mastermind behind Katniss's epic wedding dress. But now, here's some seriously exciting beauty news for you: COVERGIRL has inked a deal with the film, marking the makeup giant's very first movie partnership ever! Huge, right? This means we'll be seeing a print and TV ad campaign inspired by the fantasy flick, as well as an entire line of Capitol Collection beauty products. It all makes total sense, considering Hunger Games on-set makeup artists used the brand's products on Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the cast to create what COVERGIRL calls "luxurious, high couture looks."
Remember how Demi Lovato told us on "Live From MTV" her only form of rebellion was tattoos and hair color? Welp, she covered the tonsorial portion last week with her new blonde dye job, and NOW, she's racked up another tatt. Scrawled on the back of her left shoulder, the ink reads, "now I'm a warrior"—a lyric from "Warrior," the last track of the record. Demi tweeted a picture of her fresh body art with the caption, "Thanks @BangBang! Album release day!!! #DEMI." YUP, the ink is in celebration of her new album, DEMI. AWWwwww!

BRB guys. We're just STILL having a heart attack (get it?) from Demi Lovato gracing our offices with her radiant presence yesterday.The golden-throated pop star stopped by our Times Square headquarters less than 24 hours ago to chat LIVE with MTV News' Christina Garibaldi and a few lucky Lovatics in celebration of the official release of her brand new album DEMI. Along with talking about her eponymously titled record, Miss Lovato played a few DEMI themed games, including one with a similar idea as Pictionary that went hilariously awry. Apparently, our girl D, like us, has a pretty lewd sense of humor, but it's her ability to balance that with looking totally poised and professional that makes us love her so much.
Rihanna showed off her new lighter weave last night in LA.

Whew, anyone else feeling tired?! It's only Wednesday, and it's already been a whirlwind week in Rihanna-land, between her "#CCcertified" Kaiser tee, her new River Island sneak peek video and then, less than 24 hours ago, the campaign itself. Not to mention, those photos that surfaced yesterday of the singer rocking a platinum bob! Although the 'do later turned out to be a wig, that's not the only hair change RiRi has up her sleeve these days. Last night, she sent L.A. paparazzi into a frenzy with her brand new long, glossy, blonde weave. With a reverse ombré hue and Barbie-worthy waves, let's just cut to the chase and say we're officially obsessed.
What happens when you combine One Direction, Little Mix, nail art, and (our favorite pastime!) sleeping?? Look no further than the epic collision of awesomeness above. What's going on here? Welp, first off, our faaaaavorite Brit-Irish boy band member Zayn Malik is SLEEPING *pause for a beat* SHIRTLESS, but more specificially, he's just gotten a prank manicure from his girlfriend, Little Mix's Perrie Edwards. On one hand, we're all, "Fiiiiine, we'll face facts that Z is spoken for," but on the other, the Bieber's Girlfriend-esque first-person perspective of Perrie's snap gives us the opportunity (if even for a split-second) to pretend that this is OUR hand holding Zayn's and OUR evil genius behind his mid-slumber manicure. That is, until take one look at the nail wraps' packaging... DOH. There she is!
Thanks to the release of the star-studded Great Gatsby film (see: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan) this past weekend, there's been non-stop chatter about the literary classic as of late. Suddenly, we started to feel super nostalgic for all the books we were forced to read in high school (and how we totally didn't appreciate them while we were there...oops). To honor all those awesome English teachers during our most tumultuous teen years, we decided to round up some of the most popular books and transform them into nail art! (Don't worry, there's no quiz at the end.)
'THE GREAT GATSBY' BY F. SCOTT FITZGERALD
Of course, we have to start with the inspiration behind this post: The Great Gatsby itself. This nail artist decided to take the signature blue cover art and reinterpret it into an AMAZING five-part nail design, complete with the floating face, title, byline, and city skyline. We give her major props for the painstakingly on-point replication of the typography and serious attention to detail. Shall we say she, erm, killed it?
