A new year is upon us, but not before we party hard during the last few minutes of 2013!

We’ve compiled a list of our own personal favorite jams along with some of your favorites, just in time for you to ring in the New Year with your pals. (Note: It also makes an AMAZING primping and prepping playlist, ladies!) You’re welcome, and Happy New Year’s Eve! Keep reading »
2013 was a pretty memorable year for pop music, especially if you had lots of opinions on blurred lines and riding a wrecking ball naked. In case you need a recap of pop radio in 2013, musician Robin Skouteris made a mashup of this year’s top 56 songs and their videos. It exhaustively clocks in at just under 10 minutes! IMHO, the Katy Perry “Roar”/Taylor Swift “Trouble” part is the best. (Thanks, commenter LR52185!) [YouTube]
A few weeks ago, I wished aloud for a sequel to Rebecca Black’s “Friday.” Apparently, the universe heard me loud and clear. Rebecca delivered with a sequel called, yes,”Saturday.” (Does this mean everything I ask for on the internet will now come true? In that case, I’d like the next winning lottery numbers please.) Now, a pop punk cover of “Saturday” performed by Patty Walters has surfaced on YouTube and it’s even more fun than the original. Enjoy! Let’s cross our fingers for “Sunday” to be recorded in another two years.[YouTube]
Not every Christmas will be as magical as the ones when you still believed in Santa Claus. In fact, some of your adult Christmases are really going to suck. Kate Nash has the perfect Christmas song for everyone out there having a crappy holiday season: a new song called “I Hate You This Christmas” off her new EP, Have Faith With Kate Nash This Christmas. “I Hate You This Christmas” is about walking in on her boyfriend cheating with one of her friends and so she doesn’t have any holiday cheer. How true are these lyrics? “Everyone’s excited about going home / But I’m embarrassed to tell my mom / All the Christmas lights and mistletoe / Are only making me more alone.” Yup, been there. Someone get this girl an eggnog. [Twitter.com/KateNash]
Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend!

I’ve been listening to Christmas music pretty much exclusively since a few days before Thanksgiving. Yes, I am that person, and I’m not ashamed. I love all Christmas music (literally ALL OF IT), but there are 7 songs that I listen to on repeat pretty much every day, and somehow I never, ever get sick of them. Here they are, in no particular order: Keep reading »
A new Britney video is out! “Perfume” debuted today from Britney’s new album, Britney Jean, and it’s got her usual male model eye candy lying around shirtless. Thanks, Brit! The singing itself is a little grating — Autotune, much? — but the song is pretty catchy … even if it will make you paranoid that your partner is cheating. [Huffington Post]
As we ponder whether Lindsay Lohan ordered a hit on Barron Hilton, you may be asking yourself, Hmm, what are the other Lohan children up to? The fruitful womb of Dina Lohan spawned many other children, though none are quite as famous. Last time we saw Aliana Lohan, she was breaking into the modeling biz and maybe-getting plastic surgery. Turns out, she’s got a set of pipes on her, too. Here’s a bashful yet endearingly charming Ali singing a part from Christina Aguilera’s song “Beautiful.” She’s OK, no? [YouTube.com/AlianaLohan]
