On Tuesday, One Direction released GIFs to preview the band's video for its new single, "Midnight Memories." Because we didn't have any context, we didn't ask why Harry Styles was wet, but rather whether he or Beyonce wore wet hair better. Now that we have have watched the video more than ten a few times, we're even more confused as to why not only his hair, but his outfit is soaking wet, especially since the other guys are dry. Let's take a look at the evidence, shall we?

The video begins at a house party where the guests are sparse. If you need more guests at your next party, One Direction, I am available. Harry is not wet and in a plaid Saint Laurent shirt.

FINALLY. Shakira and Rihanna FINALLY released their video for "Can't Remember to Forget You," and it's everything we dreamed it would be. It's full of hair flips, writhing in bathing suits, and twerking in bodysuits—or, as I like to call it, a typical Friday. But seriously, the two pop divas have never looked so glam. Check out all of their sizzling outfits (or lack thereof) below!

The first minute of the video is all about Shakira. It opens with her serenading us on a bed at the bottom of a ballroom staircase. She's totally "I woke up like this" chic in crocheted undies, a thin white sweater, and wild curly hair. We've all been there, not wanting to get out of bed due to boy troubles. But this is Shakira, so naturally she dances around on white satin sheets and moves on.

Hayley Williams

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!

Some may say Justin Bieber has a healthy level of self-confidence, but in his latest music video he pursues a "Confident" lady. While the video doesn't feature many outfit changes from JB, there are a few and due to #swag levels, they deserve attention. We're here to give it to them. Peep his looks (and tiny mustache) below!

The video opens with Justin leaning against a car at what appears to be a gas station. He is wearing a light-blue MCM backpack, which he promptly drops to the ground after a pretty girl walks by. Uh, Biebs, have you ever looked at the ground at a gas station? It's covered in, like, oil and gas. RIP, $600 leather backpack.

Zendaya

In her new music video for the infectious "My Baby," Zendaya takes a break from her epic dance moves to show off her more relaxed, casually-bouncing-to-the-beat side. But just because the choreography is absent doesn't mean her fashion swagger ever strays too far. In fact, her outfits and accessories are giving us MAJOR flashbacks to the '90s hip-hop scene. We're talking sportswear, crazy-colored lipsticks, and chokers. Oh, how we've missed them!

After a too-long hiatus (three years, to be exact), Lily Allen is back. From what I understand, she was busy doing things, like, having kids and getting married, or whatever. Basically, she's a certified adult now, but that doesn't mean she's lost her playful charm. Allen kicked off her comeback in November, with a new single AND a new video for "Hard Out Here," which featured a slew of dirty dancers on a soundstage, droppin' it like it's hot in barely-there outfits made of leather and mesh. According to a few pics Allen recently posted on Instagram, the location for her next video will be a bit more, um, scenic. (Don't worry, though. There will still be mesh. IRIDESCENT mesh.)

Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding's video for "Goodness Gracious" was just released, and it is a Day-Glo DREAM. In a behind-the-scenes peek, Ellie explained that because the song's lyrics are dark, she wanted the images to be "bright and bold," so obviously, it was shot in L.A., capital of all of the above. The vid is both of those things, big time, and Ellie's glittery and glowing looks command attention, which is exactly why we've broken down each outfit for a look by look. Forget the freezing temperatures outside for a sec, and check out her cheery wardrobe below!

Ellie's first look is a sequined plaid jacket, which she pairs with a silk bustier. Her hair is perfect, but not ~perfectly coiffed~. No, I'm talking the most desirable bed-head in the history of the world. Her hair remains practically the same throughout the video, which is great, because I can't stop looking at it.

Lucky for all five of you who are still dragging your feet on copping Beyonce's history-making visual album, King Bey has bequeathed unto the world yet another one of her 17 new music videos. Congratulations, slackers. Thanks to the wide release of "Drunk in Love," you now finally ~get~ why your friends keep saying "SURFBOARD" with a Texan drawl, AND now that Pepsi is hosting the video for "Grown Woman," you can also revel in Beyonce's live reenactment of this picture and watch some adorable and craftily CGI-enhanced home-movie footage of baby Bey. I hope you know how lucky you are.

Nine months ago, Bey posted an adorable picture of herself as a child in full-on pageant regalia, standing in front of a fireplace and mantle stacked with trophies. Taking the photo from cute to hilariously irreverent, the words BOW DOWN were printed in all caps across it. It reached meme status instantly, and was definitely my Facebook cover photo for several months. In the vid, Beyonce recreates the scenes almost exactly with a fluffy, feathery, baby-pink dress, jewels, and a tiara. Except now, she's a grooowwwwnnn woman. (She can do whatever she wants.)

We are now embarking on Day 5 of Beyonce's 2013 wig snatch album release heard 'round the world. Just in case you were involved in some sort of experiment that had you cut-off from all humanity over the weekend, let me bring you up to speed. Without any promotion or warning, King Bey dropped a 14-track, 17-video visual album at midnight on December 13 via iTunes. She blew minds and shattered records, and yes, we are STILL talking about it!

Most of the music videos are still relegated behind the wall of iTunes where you need to drop some coin ($14.99 to be exact) to watch them, which IMHO is totally worth it because (A) cultural currency, (B) Beyonce, and (C) there are SO MANY OUTFITS you need to see to believe. Yesterday, Bey offered up her music videos for "Drunk In Love" and her new single "XO," giving you a taste of what you might be missing if you haven't copped the album yet. Funnily enough, those are also the only two videos on Bey's self-titled project that feature her in just one look. YOU GOTTA EARN THOSE WARDROBE CHANGES, Y'ALL!

All the BeyHiiiive, if you hear meeee, help me sing it ouuuuuut! Is everybody still breathing? Chances are, you're actually reading this a few days AFTER the Friday, December 13, 2013 release of Beyonce's brand new self-titled ~visual album~ because you chose to siphon yourself off from humanity to devote your attention to watching all 17 videos in full, end-to-end, at least three times in a row. TBH, I would have done the same if this wasn't my job. But here we are, right??

If you know anything about Beyonce's track record with music videos (*achem* "Countdown," "Crazy In Love," "SINGLE LADIES"???), you know these have to be iconic and FULL of fashion. The videos Bey released via iTunes last night are no exception, so we've taken on the daunting task of breaking them down look by look. That's right, folks. 17 videos. Look. By. Look. Lord Bey-sus be with us. BUT, don't think for one second that we're giving it to you all at once. We want this to last as loooooong as possible, so we're parsing them out little by little.

First up is "Pretty Hurts," which is basically Beyonce's version of "Unpretty" for 2013 (and '14 and beyonced). It opens up with Short-Haired Beyonce, which is a visual reminder (apart from the fact that you're hearing new Bey music via a music video you just bought on iTunes in the middle of the night) that ish is very different this time around.

The video centers around a beauty pageant setting but leans more Drop Dead Gorgeous than "Toddler In Tiaras." (Though, unfortuantely, no one wears a Mount Rushmore headpiece in Bey's show.) Mrs. Carter-Knowles represents as Miss 3rd Ward, a nod to her H-Town upbringings, and is seen here in beige, pointy-cup lingerie and a tiara.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
