Get Hayley Williams' watch earrings!

In the video for "Ain't It Fun," Paramore's latest single, Hayley Williams and Co. set out to break the "most world records in a music video." They smash alarm clocks with guitars, catch feathers, destroy vinyl records, and run backwards blindfolded while carrying stuffed animals. Sure, we were interested to see if they'd break any records, but we were more interested in Hayley's blunt bob. It's still bright (duh), but the shorter length means that her earring game needs to be on-point. Predictably, it is. Big time. Even better than merely gazing at her dangling accessories? You can get 'em yourself. Yeah, NBD, we have all the deets on the earrings, including where to find them!
Imagine, for a minute, that you're a world-famous pop star. You just performed your brand new single live at the 2014 Grammys, and a few days later, you get this phone call from someone on your team: "CONGRATULATIONS, [insert stage name here]! That song you performed at the Grammys has officially taken over the top position on Billboard's Hot 100! How are you going to honor this momentous occasion?" Here are a few ways you might choose to celebrate: by going to Disneyland, by popping bottles, by taking a well-deserved day off, by ordering one of everything at McDonald's and not feeling bad about it. Here's how Katy Perry actually celebrated when "Dark Horse" hit number one: with wigs.
Yep. Probably could've guessed this.

And now for the s*** you didn't see. Or rather couldn't, because there isn't even an alternate universe in which a director would take a tight shot of someone's EAR for a high-profile, nationally televised performance. To the surprise of, I'm sure, literally no one, Miley Cyrus owns sparkly gold earpieces emblazoned with teeny-tiny cannabis leaves. It's no secret that Miles has a thing for Mary Jane. She wears her love of weed on her sleeve. And her halter top. And her backpack. And, of course, in lieu of an acceptance speech at this year's MTV EMA, she lit up a joint onstage. But what you might not have known or noticed was that Miles' earpieces, which she's used for countless performances from iHeartRadio to MTV Unplugged, advertise her 420 ethos, as well.
Miley Cyrus throws down an 'Unplugged' hoedown.

I don't know if it's just because I was THERE for it, but Miley Cyrus has never made so much sense to me until watching her perform for Unplugged. When artists go Unplugged, they strip their music down to its most basic elements, and usually their performance style follows suit (à la Kurt Cobain's nubby cardigan or Jay Z's Che Guevara crewneck). Well, when you dial Miley back to her roots, you get Nashville, the Grand Ole Opry, hair spray, and velvet paintings of Elvis set against sequined curtains. So while her set was stripped-down, leaning heavily on acoustics, her onstage steez left no rhinestone unturned. #turndownforwhat
Welcome back, classic Lady Gaga! In a video clip to promote ticket sales for her upcoming ARTPOP Ball Tour in the UK, Mother Monster brought back a look from her "Poker Face" days with a platinum, full-bang hairstyle, her signature pointy shoulder pads, and indoor sunglasses (of course). Little Monsters will be pleased to know they can dust off their The Fame-era wigs. It's OK, Monsters, you can temporarily retire your smeared white face- and body powder. It was too hard to copy on an everyday basis anyway.
Will Demi wear this on stage?

Demi Lovato's Neon Lights Tour is right around the corner (it kicks off on February 9th), and here's what we know to expect so far: Demi's newly pink hair, neon and lights and probably a lot of neon lights, a magician, and judging from the sneak-peek picture she recently tweeted, a live-action, Renaissance-style joust with knights in full suits of plated armor. TOUCHÉ, m'lady! Actually, we're only guessing about that last part, but Demi does look ready for a battle royale (save, y'know, actual weaponry) in that chain-mail getup, amirite?
Get your Miley on.

Now that you know what Miley will be wearing for Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged tonight (at 9 p.m. EST/PST on MTV), the really big question is: What will you be wearing? I mean, this is no ordinary event here, people. This stripped-down, turnt-up special calls for something way more stylish than your favorite sweatpants. Unfortunately, it's probably a tad too late to bedazzle your own glammed-up version of a Canadian tuxedo (unless you're just THAT crafty, in which case, swag on you), so we went ahead and rounded up a whole heap of Miley merch for you to rock instead.
Rihanna in fur and sneakers, NBD.

While we mere mortals were still snoring into our pillows this morning, Rihanna was looking flawless in Times Square at the crack of dawn. We're talking the red-lips, sleek-hair, fur-coat kind of flawless. And this was just what she wore BEFORE her television appearance on Good Morning America. She made the brief trek from her car to the studio wearing a glamorous, vintage floor-length fur coat over gray sweats and New Balance sneakers—Rih's elevated version of casual streetwear. She also arrived with her hair and makeup already done to perfection. (BTW, it's been months since we've seen her rock straight hair, and we've gotta admit we've missed it.)
Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevigne, Eliza Cummings, and A$AP Rocky for DKNY.

With all of the brands that A$AP Rocky name drops in “Fashion Killa”—all 27, to be exact—it’s pretty crazy that it took this long for one of them to tap the song as a promotional soundtrack. Fittingly, DKNY, who already released a print campaign featuring A$AP, is the first. In the video for DKNY’s Spring/Summer 2014 campaign, perrrfectly timed for the Super Bowl this Sunday, master funny face-maker Cara Delevigne tosses a football around Times Square with fellow models Jourdan Dunn and Eliza Cummings while they’re all wearing sporty logo-emblazoned gear by the brand. Rocky is tossed the ball only once. Ladies, look to Rocky: He's open, he's open! Football has never looked so fun. Seriously though, when’s the last time you saw someone crack a smile while throwing around a football? When’s the last time you saw someone spike a football while standing on a taxi? #CaraDelevingnesTouchdownFace
