Imagine if American Apparel threw a party in honor of Fiona Apple's "Criminal" video at a nightclub described by Stefon from Saturday Night Live.
Then add in some Build-a-Bear Workshop overstock, some grills, a French fry skull, a piñata full of hot dogs and a lot of shots of Cyrus's tongue and butt and you've basically got the Diane Martel-directed video for Miley Cyrus's "We Can't Stop."
To quote Forrest Gump, "That's all I have to say about that."
But what do you have to say? Is it a deliberately self-referential parody of Cyrus's rep as a party girl?

Don't mess with Rihanna!
When a fan got too clingy at a recent concert, the singer used her microphone to give the fan a whack – and it was caught on video.
While performing at a stop on her latest world tour in Birmingham, England, Rihanna, 25, left the stage to walk by the crowd of screaming fans, touching hands as she sang "We Found Love."
But when one fan held on too long, she was quick to react. In a fan-recorded video, Rihanna can be seen using her microphone to hit the audience member.

Leave it to John Mayer to provide the soundtrack for all your Prancercise needs – his new single "Paper Doll" calls upon the talents of Joanna Rohrback, the face of Prancercise, to illustrate the tune.
On her website, Rohrback describes Prancercise as "a springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse's gait and ideally induced by elation."
Though Rohrback's presence (as well as a random appearance by Monk's Jarrad Paul) puts a fun spin on a seemingly downbeat tune, many are wondering if the song pays tribute to Mayer's rumored pairing with Taylor Swift.

Katy Perry says Russell Brand was "a magical man" when they met four years ago, but the spell wore off shortly after their Indian wedding in October 2010. And it bottomed out when the actor sent her a text 14 months later informing her he planned to file for divorce.
"He's a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him," Perry tells Vogue in a revealing cover interview for its July issue. "Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011."
Perry, 28, says that Brand, 38, seemed to have difficulty accepting her role as a successful musician and businesswoman – even if that's what he thought he wanted.

It seems the apples don't fall far from the tree!
Britney Spears debuted her new single, "Ooh La La," on Ryan Seacrest's radio show Monday morning and revealed that her two sons, Sean Preston, 7, and Jayden, 6, were pros when they made a cameo in the music video for the song from the The Smurfs 2 soundtrack.
"They were actually really, really good on set," she told Seacrest. "They were, like, acting, and my oldest son, Preston, was right on cue every time they would tell him to do something … Later on I got to see what they actually did on camera and it was adorable."
It's clear Spears – who made her showbiz debut on Star Search at the age of 10 – is really proud of her boys, who live with her ex-husband, Kevin Federline.

Cyndi Lauper has plenty to celebrate – and she's not doing it alone.
Not only is the singer-songwriter Tony-nominated for her critically acclaimed score to the best-musical contender Kinky Boots, but she's also marking the 30th anniversary of the monster hit that first put her on the map, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," which she released in 1983.
To celebrate? She was totally surprised by the Kinky Boots ensemble. After quietly securing permission from Lauper's manager and her record company, Sony Music, they assembled this performance music video (see below) of Lauper's signature number.
"It's so sweet, I'm crying," Lauper, 59, during a quick break from rehearsal Monday, told PEOPLE of her reaction to what was done – and about those who participated. She first saw the video Sunday night, before it was posted to YouTube.

She's down – but not out.
Singer Sharon Jones, 57, the frontwoman of the soul and funk revivalist group Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, has revealed she's been diagnosed with stage-one bile duct cancer and has been forced to cancel all promotional duties. An album, scheduled for release in August, will also be postponed.
In a statement posted on her website, Jones says early detection of the stage-one tumor on her bile duct means she is expected to make a full recovery.
"We caught it really early and fast and the doctors say it's operable and curable," she wrote. "I will be having surgery very soon and will have to rest and recover."

Hip rolls, high kicks, jazz hands – and plenty of belting.
Jessica Simpson Tweeted the "ultimate" video in honor of "throwback Thursday," sharing a sweet vintage video from her high school performance of A Chorus Line's show-stopper "The Music and the Mirror." (Watch it above.)
With a big voice, red lips, credible leaps and plenty of dance technique, Simpson's performance at Richardson, Texas's J.J. Pearce High School, where she later dropped out and earned a GED, screens like something from an episode of Glee. It also spotlights her wholesome good looks and early talent before she rocketed to musical, fashion and reality TV fame.
