The People’s Choice Awards
Miss Miley kicked off her fashionable year by wearing a white David Koma dress and pink snakeskin Jimmy Choo pumps, which were capped off by a silver Marchesa clutch and Neil Lane studs. Matching the dress’ highlights to her footwear? Love!

There’s just something about wearing lingerie-like attire
to a red carpet that rings sorta wrong in our opinion.

Film Awards & Benefit Dinner
Compared to the sheer, bra-revealing outfits she’s known to wear now,
we guess this is being modest.

Out on the Town
Now we know that Miley’s always getting flack for her short shorts,
but these duds truly took Daisy Dukes to new heights.

Chopping Off Her Locks
Post-Miley bun, this lady was free to explore the self she had always wanted but never experienced. Her hair after the August cut made every outfit since seem new, edgy and exciting.

Crazy Pants Day
Hey, there are some days when you really need to rock some crazy pants. Pretty sure we wouldn’t rock them ourselves, but hey, it’s definitely better to wear crazy pants than be crazypants.

iHeartRadio Festival
Miley was still going hardcore with her hardware and smashing with her fashion come the Las Vegas-held event. Girl worked that turtleneck crop-top and skirt-and-belt combination.

As Nicki Minaj on Halloween
A look so spot-on, we couldn’t not include it. It was the exact same outfit as the one Nicki wore in her “Beez in the Trap” video!

5 Fun Facts About Joe Jonas’ New Girlfriend, Blanda Eggenschwiler

Joe Jonas spotted with another hottie? Color us shocked. (He does have a reputation, you know.) But upon further inspection, Joe’s new lady friend, Blanda Eggenschwiler, seems — dare we say it? — awesome. It might impress you to know that this 29-year-old might be the total package. We’re talking brains and beauty here. So, we’ve curated the five most interesting facts about the latest Jonas GF. After all, we’re only looking out for Joe’s best interests…

Tumblr (nik-ashe)

She’s Team Switzerland
The former model, now residing in New York City, was born overseas in one of the most beautiful places in the world. And there’s no way that growing up in such a place can’t impact your beauty. She’s gorgeous!

Twitter (@blanda_blanda)

She’s an Accomplished Graphic Designer/Illustrator
Not only were we pleasantly surprised to find that we enjoyed Miss Eggenschwiler’s aesthetics, but she’s had a number of remarkable assignments, which you can see via her website, blandablanda.com. Pretty impressive, don’tchya think?

Twitter (@bland_blanda)

She’s Had Her Own Clothing Collection
If you’ve ever seen Justin Bieber wear a hat, then odds sure that you’ve seen the OBEY clothing line before. Who knew that OBEY had guest artists do limited edition T-shirt collections for them? We didn’t either — until we saw Blanda’s!

OBEY

She’s Currently Working for The New York Times
The media equivalent of winning a Lifetime Achievement Award, this lady broke into the old boys’ club before reaching 30. And she still has time to go to Disneyland with Joe? Girl can multitask.

Twitter (@blanda_blanda)

Despite Being a Former Model, She’s Totally Down to Earth
Joe’s always said that the easiest way to meet him is to just say hi, so you know Blanda’s got to be easy to get along with. No small feat for someone used to being admired for her beauty…

The 8 Most Ridiculous Celebrity Tour Riders Ever

Oh, celebrities. They’re so not like us after all. Just think about what you pack to bring along for vacation… then imagine what these guys get to request. You know what we’re referring to: the tour rider — a set of demands that a celeb sets as a criteria for his/her performances. Basically, this is letting everyone else know that they call the shots. So gather your Red Bulls and meat platters, because we’re counting down the 8 most random (and ridiculous) celebrity riders…

Taylor Swift
If you thought the country crooner was nothing but sweet, just wait ’til you hear her requests: Twizzlers (alright, that’s sweet), pickles, spaghetti and a very specific Starbucks order (one grande iced caramel latte, one grande iced Americano, one slice pumpkin loaf).

WENN

Justin Bieber
JB loves himself some candy (Swedish Fish in the States; Big Foots in Canada), but his most random rider request has to be his selection of T-shirts and socks. Three packages of socks and four packages of shirts in various types make the cut… in XS, L or XL, WTF?

WENN

Katy Perry
What makes this Kitty purry? Only the best dressing rooms essentials, of course! From her designer chairs and table (in a “perspex modern style”) to her glass-front refrigerator, we’d have thought this kitten would want to get her mittens on some less frigid settings. The best part of Katy’s rider? In all caps, “ABSOLUTELY NO CARNATIONS.”

WENN

Kanye West
Not only does Yeezy specify that the venue must provide — and then re-cut! — Versace towels for him at his shows to use onstage, but he even takes out specifics on whomever will be his chauffeur. Even still, specifying that his driver wear “No man-made fibers,” must be one of the most random requests we’ve heard yet.

WENN

Christina Aguilera
From eschewing Styrofoam products “due to the state of the environment” to Echinacea tablets, we’re at least glad Xtina’s demands include vitamins — Flintstones vitamins, to be exact.

WENN

Justin Timberlake
If you thought Christina was all about health, then JT requires a whole new level when he travels. Not only does he request an entire floor of the hotel for his entourage, but he also requires that the doorknobs be disinfected every two hours! Ever thought about bottles of Purell there, Justin?

WENN

Selena Gomez
Sel hardly seems like the type to make egregious demands, and we’re only mildly surprised at her insistence on eating on real china with actual silverware, with food being served in a dining area. A quaint backstage dinner for the group, perhaps?

Facebook (Selena Gomez)

Britney Spears
While performing in London in 2011, Britney may have added some more Euro-centric additions to her tour rider. From noshing on McDonald’s cheeseburgers without the bun and 100 prunes and figs, the most unexpected addition may have been the most touching — a framed photo of the late Princess Diana.

5 Reasons Why the Kennedy Break-Up is T.Swift’s Most Awkward One Yet

Taylor Swift has gone through some pretty epic break-ups, but she may have hit her awkward-level high when her relationship with Conor Kennedy was pronounced ‘dunzo’ toward the end of Red-release week. After all, it’s one thing to have to pass your ex on the way to Algebra every day, but it’s another to parade your love on a national tour. Fear not, Taylor, it’s all uphill from here! We figure that this is the last time she’ll have to deal with:

The Award
The Kennedys were all set to honor Taylor’s humanitarian contributions with a dinner this December, and they’ve announced that plans will continue with those honors. But really, what’s more awkward — having your ex’s family give you a major award, or sitting through a dinner with everyone telling you how great they think you are to your face… and maybe thinking another inside?

WENN

The House
Taylor became such a big fan of Conor’s summer hometown, Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, that she ended up buying the house across the street from his grandmother, Ethel. Well, nothing like paying a monthly mortgage to remind you of your former flame — or running into his grandma at the gas station, the grocery store, the mall…

MLS

The Album of Break-Up Songs About Other Exes
From the secret messages on Red, it seems like Taylor has written songs about a lot of her famous splits, then several about falling in love (with Conor?). The album was surely meant to show a progression from heartbreak to lasting love, but it was not to be.

WENN

That Even Donald Trump Has Commented On It
Donald Trump isn’t exactly known for being hep to the jive outside of the business world, but lately it seems like he’s commenting on everyone’s relationships — and Taylor’s is no exception. After calling the split “great news for Taylor,” we couldn’t help but be puzzled.

WENN

Now She Will Tour The Story Across the Country
You know how at first after a break-up, all you want to do is cry and have your friends help you through? But then, eventually, you eat some Ben & Jerry’s and move on? Well, imagine doing that holding pattern… for a year! Yes, as Taylor goes on tour singing songs about her newfound love that has now ended, we can’t help but feel sad for Tay having to relive any painful memories of the trauma.

If Taylor Wasn’t Singing, She’d Be…

5 Reasons Why Miley Cyrus Should Be Cool with the JoBros’ “Wedding Bells”

We’re super-stoked for the Jonas Brothersnew album, but the song that they debuted at Radio City Music Hall just a short while ago, “Wedding Bells?” Oh man. The Nick Jonas-penned tune didn’t help us not picture its references to a certain Southern belle — and Jonas ex — Miley Cyrus. And while there may be too many coincidences for it to not be about this teen queen, we’re proud of Miley’s acceptance of the song. And why shouldn’t she be cool with it? We’ll give you five reasons why she totally should be. Read on, then make sure to leave your thoughts in the comments or on our new Miley Cyrus message board!

There’s No Such Thing As Bad Publicity
Nick wrote a song and Miley is the subject of it, so that will lead to new interview topics, new insights into Niley’s past, and… free publicity! Both can help the other’s career, even if they aren’t dating. It’s the nature of the business that relationships will form between performers, so why not use it to bring light to some new projects? 

CBS

She’s Committed to Making It Work With Liam
Miley admitted that she’d have a different take on things if she and fiancé Liam Hemsworth were just boyfriend and girlfriend, but there’s a certain change that comes with being engaged. Since she only has eyes for Liam, she knows that going back to Nick would only cause heartache for everyone — most of all, herself! Nick could write 10 songs about Miley, but this couple will stay rock solid.

Twitter

Isn’t It Time Nick Wrote a Song About Miley?
Miley famously wrote “7 Things” about Nick back in 2008, so why wouldn’t Miley be thrilled that Nick wrote such a meaningful song about her as a response? Songs are most poignant when they’re about true emotions after all. It could have been mean-spirited, so MiCy should actually be relieved.

Because It’s a Major Compliment
There is something about the craft of songwriting that seems incredibly special, no? The best is that it’s a good song — one that listeners can take to heart and make their own. We can dig it.

Instagram

Miley Has Moved On
Liam has clearly helped Miley realize that life has phases. And just because you don’t marry someone doesn’t mean that what you had with them wasn’t special. It doesn’t make sense for someone so focused on their future to dwell on her past, so kudos to her.

Why Amanda Bynes Rocks (and Why We Hope She Gets Better Soon)

Amanda Bynes has been all over headlines lately. Unfortunately, none of them are for very good reasons. (Try Googling her right now. You’ll see.) But we swear, she’s not just some Lindsay Lohan in training. Amanda used to be the coolest of the cool. like, Demi Lovato-type cool. So listen up, whippersnappers, ‘cause we’re breaking down why Amanda Bynes rocks (and why you should heart her, too!).

6. She Was Born To Do It
A professional actor since age 7, Amanda became a fixture on super popular Nickelodeon shows like Figure It Out and All That. (Think of All That as an older version of So Random!) She was always nailing every part, which led to some pretty awesome scene steals, and the creation of her infamous catchphrase, “THAAAT’S ME!

5. The Amanda Show was Full of Win
Always the standout, Amanda was eventually given her own sketch comedy program called The Amanda Show, which led to fan-favorite segment “The Girls’ Room:”

Oh, and BTW. The Amanda Show also helped launch the careers of Josh Peck and Drake Bell.

4. She Totally Had a Fashion Line Before It Was the Norm
Clothing slash accessories line to be exact. Remember Dear? It was housed at Steve & Barry’s department stores. You know who else had their first clothing line in Steve & Barry’s? That would be Sarah Jessica Parker, at the height of her Sex and the City fame.

3. She Held Her Own Against Experienced Actors Twice Her Age
What I Like About You was Amanda’s foray into adult mainstream TV, and she even held her own against former Beverly Hills: 90210 star Jennie Garth. (Fun Fact: If that set looks familiar around 4:45, that would be the same set from iCarly.)

2. She’s Really Freakin’ Funny
Not too many 10-year-olds could pull off
doing a set at the famous comedy club, The Laugh Factory…

Plus, the GIFs pratically make themselves:

The 8 Most Random Celebrity Thefts Ever

So we all know that celebrities have The. Coolest. Stuff. Ever. And, hey, it’s hard to not covet what their hard-earned bucks buy. But, here’s the flip side: We don’t have to deal with theft the same way that celebs do (in which even their biggest fans would do anything to get a piece of them — even stealing their property!). So without further ado, we’re counting down the 8 most random celebrity thefts of all time, starting with:

8. Kim Kardashian’s “Personal Items”
Can you imagine the horror of checking your luggage at the airport, only to get it back with your special items missing? That’s exactly what happened to Kim K, who had her bags broken into after a British Airways flight in May 2012. Kim even called the employee(s) out on Twitter, saying:

As far as we know, the items were never recovered…

WENN

7. will.i.am’s “Deloreon”
If ’80s kids had to name their dream car, it’d definitely be a Deloreon à la Back to the Future — but will.i.am probably wasn’t thinking that someone would just drive off with his! The Black Eyed Peas singer was attending a party for his new album back in August after parking his car around the corner from the event. When he went to get it back — poof! — it was gone.

Luckily, thanks to the hard work of Twitter’s detectives and the tag #wheresmycar, will.i.am was able to get his car back (without the use of time travel).

Twitter

6. Justin Bieber’s Back License Plate
It isn’t hard to spot Bieber’s chromed-out Fisker — ya know, the one he was cited for speeding in — seeing as how it’s the flashiest car on the planet. But who would steal it’s back license plate?! You’d think a thief would steal something that wouldn’t get their fave celeb in trouble with the law (and we’re pretty sure JB would like to avoid further interactions with the cops, too).

WENN

5. Joe Jonas’ Bicycle
There are some days when a day goes from bad to worse, just like Joe Jonas found out back in April of this year when “his lady” (AKA his bike) was taken away from him.

After finding his bike missing, Joe took himself to get some ice cream as consolation — only for it to fall on the ground!

And while Joe didn’t find the bike, we hope he was able to find a suitable replacement (and a better scoop!).

4. Audrina Patridge’s Custom-Fit Jeans
Long before The Bling Ring was conceived as a movie, this group was terrorizing the homes of Hollywood’s power players in 2009. After hitting the homes of Rachel Bilson, Paris Hilton, and Orlando Bloom, the group set their sights on Audrina’s abode — even making off with her custom-made denim! Now who would want to steal a pair of jeans that wouldn’t even fit them?

WENN

3. Adele Stole Katy Perry’s Half-Eaten Burrito
Back when Katy was playing smaller shows, she remembers one hungry mouth that she never intended to feed being backstage — Adele’s! Katy says that Adele was amazed that someone had managed to find a burrito in England, and, when Katy wasn’t looking, made off with the half-eaten treat! There are those times when you have to run for the border, but maybe Adele could have just asked Katy for a bite?

Tumblr

2. Justin Bieber’s Hat
You know you have all the luck when you end up on this list twice. This time, the Biebs was being escorted through a New Zealand airport when two fans ‘napped his cap! The fans felt remorseful enough to return it to him — or was it just an excuse to meet Justin in the first place? Hmm…

1. The Jonas Brothers‘ Underwear
Perhaps Kim Kardashian should count her lucky stars, because the JoBros’ luggage was missing the most personal items they had — their undies!  At first the group thought it was a harmless backstage prank when their boxers began disappearing from their dressing rooms. But the boys decided to step up security after notes began appearing in their suitcases after the thefts, which read, “Your undies are safe with us… The Undie Snatchers!” (Because, yeah, that’s totally not creepy.) So whoever you are Undie Snatchers, it seems you’re STILL at large!

Are Justin Bieber and One Direction Twitter Warring?! Teen.com Investigates

Oh Justin Bieber — first the paparazzi, then the cops and now, beef with One Direction?! If you’ve seen the lyrics for JB and Carly Rae Jepsen’s upcoming “Beautiful” duet — and you know that you have! — then you may have noticed some eerie similarities to the lyrics of a certain boy band (or of a certain boy) from across the pond. And it seems like many 1D fans have, too, since there is some major dramz going down on Twitter between Directioners and Beliebers — and they’re even managing to get Ed Sheeran in on the action, too!

Twitter/YouTube

The Background: One Direction has done its share of work for letting us ladies know “You don’t know you’re beautiful/That what makes you beautiful.” But via Internet rumblings, it seems as though Justin and Carly will give them a run for their money during their upcoming duet, “Beautiful” off of Carly’s new album, Kiss.

It all started with Justin’s recent tweet that his duet with Carly, “Beautiful” was tweeted as having similar lyrics back in 2011, a claim which a Jepsener backed up:

And despite Beliebers being thrilled about these two Canadians and labelmates making sweet music together, Directioners were less than thrilled:

In fact, fans have even made it a point to show that Ed Sheeran’s song, “Wake Me Up,” has similar lyrics, so Justin and Carly were doubly wrong:

Tumblr

Tumblr

But rather than endorse the fighting, it seems that Justin has stepped in to quell it, tweeting:

And, to further prove that there’s no animosity between the guys, Justin sent out a tweet directly to Niall Horan and Zayn Malik, just in time for the 2012 MTV VMAs!

Which side are you on in this “twitter war?” Do you think JB and Carly copied 1D’s lyrics or the other way around?
