Lady Gaga does her best 'Mona Lisa' impression.

Just yesterday, we saw Lady Gaga leave Tokyo in demented Disney princess jeans. Like, the pants that many people wear daily. Alas, after just a few hours of trying out life in everyday denim, Gaga is back to doing her own thang, this time in a Mona Lisa printed cape. Turning iconic works of art into clothing is, so far, a big part of Gaga's ARTPOP era steez (see: her Botticelli dress and Jeff Koons Gazing Ball purse). Her tour merch is going to be so artsy!
Gaga left her hotel in London wearing what, TBH, looks like a blanket that she bought on the street outside the Louvre and cut a head hole into. Given how much she loves bedazzling, I wouldn't be surprised if she broke out the scissors every once in a while. Much like the recognizable Disney princesses on her jeans, this Mona Lisa bears a close resemblance to the one that sits in the museum, but is inexplicably a little ~off~. Gaga's cape/blanket ML seems happier than Da Vinci's. The air of mystery surrounding her has evaporated. She also seems to have had a touch of rhinoplasty and a hint of chin surgery. Say hello to 21st century Mona, y'all.

In a surprising act of normalcy, Lady Gaga ditched her wigs, strapped on her staple shoes, and wore jeans (*GASP*) to catch a flight from Tokyo's Narita Airport today. Not just any jeans, mind you—these jeans were BAGGY (*DOUBLE GASP*) and rolled over at the waist. I mean, Gaga NEVER wears jeans. In fact, whereas 99% of the population would typically wear jeans with, say, a flannel shirt, Mother Monster has, on multiple occasions, opted to go sans pants entirely. Until now.
At the end of the day, though, she's still Lady Gaga—which is why she chose a pair covered in demented-looking Disney princesses. Seriously, there's something way off about the way their faces are painted, amirite? I highly doubt that Walt would approve. *shudder*

Don't worry, Selenators, Selena Gomez didn't actually cut her hair! It does kinda seem like she's toying with the idea, though, unless she's attempting to create a Sasha Fierce-esque onstage persona for herself. I mean, early in November, Flaunt magazine released those pictures of her with a blunt bob, and now, almost a month later, she's performing wearing a very similar wig. Or maybe the same one? IDK, maybe she "borrowed" it from set. We would be all for the drastic 'do (you know we love us some may-jah hair news), but we ALSO can't forget the follow-up video to her Flaunt spread, where short-haired Selly was searching for her longer-haired self.
Selena hit the stage in Dallas in a white bralet/hotpants combo similar to the outfits she's been wearing all tour, but her hair was noticeably, like, 10 inches shorter. We would've thought she cut her hair for real, but an hour earlier, her mane was its usual glamorous length.
Britney Spears: turtlenecks' biggest fan.

No one loves turtlenecks more than Britney Spears. It's just a fact. From her immaculate white "Sometimes" top to her red latex "Oops...I Did It Again" catsuit to her mid-aughts Starbucks run uniforms, the Louisiana girl-turned-woman has been a fan of the hyper-modest neckline since way back her earliest days of pop superstardom. That's not to say she didn't also delve into lower-cut territory (and midriff-baring and micro hemlines) because she totally totally did, but Brit's thing for turtlenecks, and even a subtle mock neck, is pretty unique, and with the exception of Spears herself has remained a relic of the late '90s until now.
Despite it not necessarily being the most flattering steez for most normal humans, Britney has stood by the look for over a decade and may be the precise origin
to blame responsible for the sartorial phenomenon that is the short-sleeved, cropped turtleneck. Now, to celebrate her 32nd year (AND because we're right on the heels of her eighth studio album Britney Jean), we're offering up 32 turtlenecks for any brave lady (Brit included) whose closet (and clavicle) is feeling a little bare.
Multiple Mother Monsters.

Sorry, World. Japan officially loves Lady Gaga the most. (Please don't kill the messenger.) But, I mean, it's true. Japan loves Gaga SO much that they out Tussaud'ed Madame Tussauds (and out creeped Lars and the Real Girl) by making an entire army of Mother Monsters. An army that plays ARTPOP from the heart AND wears 9-inch platform stilettos. #upgrade Also, you can apparently hug these Gaga clones without getting swept up by burly security guards. At least, that's what a video from Yahoo! Japan implies.
Lady Gaga tweeted a photo of three VERY real-looking "GagaDolls" sitting on a couch in Japan with the caption, "Who needs barbies when you can own your own life size pop star that sings to you #gagadollz." Hey, Santa? Is it too late to add this to my Christmas list?
Will.I.Am and Miley Cyrus in the video for "Feelin' Myself."

These days, seeing Miley Cyrus perform in the equivalent of underwear is pretty much the norm. She's shown us that, no matter the season, most occasions call for a high-cut, two-piece outfit and platform shoes. (Sidebar: she must save SO much storage and packing space without all those pesky pants to fold!) Naturally, her outfit in Will.I.Am's new joint for "Feelin' Myself" is no exception. Cyrus wears black latex separates, matching strappy heels and a gold chain belt to rap and shake her booty "like an expert" in the video, which also features appearances by French Montana and Wiz Khalifa. Oh, and that chain-link bomber she covers up with? Turns out, it didn't come from on-set wardrobe—it came from her very own closet.

Oh hey, Miley's eyebrows. Welcome back. We thought we'd lost you there for a minute. PHEW. The return of Miley Cyrus' dark brows was the first thing that caught our eye when she took the stage to perform "Wrecking Ball" at tonight's American Music Awards. The SECOND thing we noticed, though, was that her outfit matched her HIGH-larious screen visual from head to ACTUAL toe. (Also, if matching is "happening," BRB I need to go change my socks.)

Katy Perry was all KINDS of coordinated for her red carpet arrival at the 2013 American Music Awards. First of all, before the show she tweeted a photo of a cherry-blossom covered microphone and then she shows up with flowers all over her dress. Granted, the flora on her dress was roses, not cherry blossoms, but HELLO! They were still flowers, OK? Then, we noticed that her voluminous Oscar de la Renta gown, which she described as "polka dotted punk rock," also coordinated with her nails (polka dot) AND her giant statement accessory (a flower-shaped ring). #impressed
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!
