Seriously, they end it with the biggest cliffhanger, WTF moment ever and then we hear they may not be back till 2016? We can't even handle that type of news.

Back in the '90s, boy bands ruled the scene. They were full of hot, young guys and they led the mall crowd all the way into the early 2000s. Everywhere they went, they were followed by screaming girls. They were probably the most popular guys on the planet. Not everyone liked them, however. I didn't. I was a teenage boy, and they were the bane of my existence.
It's National Dog Day! Dogs are man's best friend ... until that man gets a new girlfriend.

But she ruled your life, our life, her mama's life, her daddy's life and the VMAs' life in general when she cooed, "Yay, mommy" as the Hova took the stage to hand Beyonce her Video Vanguard Award. Bey had just performed a medley of every song from her new, self-titled album to close out the broadcast and ceremony and, unsurprisingly, it was the best performance of the night. No wonder Blue is the best celeb kid there is!
Remember last year at the VMAs when Miley Cyrus went up on stage and acted a fool, and she claimed that what she was doing was called twerking? And we were all like "No, that wasn't twerking. I'm not sure what twerking is, but that definitely wasn't it." And then MTV tried to act like it was a really popular thing and everyone was kind of uncomfortable and confused?
Mariah Carey and her second husband Nick Cannon are living separate lives after six years of marriage and Dem Babies. While Carey has remain tight-lipped about the marital woes, Cannon has confirmed that he and his wife are living apart and that there is trouble in paradise.

I'm a recipe developer. So I've seen cookies cooked in cookies. I've seen pie-flavored jelly shots. I've seen homemade pop-tarts stuffed with candy bars and And mason jars of cake, packed to the gills with a ribbony swirl of rainbow colors. So, we decided to simplify.

And thus, this pretty-and-perfect, all-natural gluten-free Rainbow Pancake Cake was born.

Kristen Stewart is no stranger to controversy, nor is she afraid to shake things up. Between her bare-it-all scenes in On The Road and her topless ad for Balenciaga, Stewart is showing us all what it means to be a confident, badass woman. She was reportedly completely comfortable being naked onscreen while filming On The Road, which just drives home our point: she is way cooler while nude than a great many of us could ever hope to be.
Believe it or not, your partner’s scent played a bigger part in your initial attraction than you realize. In fact, psychologists are starting to think physical attraction may be entirely based on scent. Scent is directly linked to your body chemistry and an experiment even showed that women were more likely to be attracted to a scent of a shirt owned by a man that had the opposite body chemistry as her.
Miley Cyrus is a very … let's say open girl. She's not afraid to bare it all on a magazine cover or in a music video (that poor wrecking ball). And Instagram is no exception. Miley does deserve some props for being so comfortable in her own skin, and for being confident enough to broadcast said skin on social media. Let's face it; most of us are not that cool.
