T.I. gets lost in the desert in his “Hello” video.
T.I. is becoming quite the actor! OK, yeah, he’s appeared in actual films like “Identity Thief” and “Takers,” but we’re starting to think that maybe his taste for movie star roles has snuck into his music. That seems to be the case in his new video, “Hello,” from his latest album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head. With a little help from Cee Lo Green on vocals, T.I. wakes up in the clip dusty and musty on a dirt-side road, trying to piece together what brought him there in the first place. Ugh, been there Tip. If we had a nickel for every time we woke up in a ditch, we’d have… you know what? Not important.

Directed by Marc Klasfeld, “Hello” opens with narration by T.I. while a camera zooms dramatically over an arid, country landscape. Waking up with his nice hat all bent and dirty, T.I. looks around and tries to figure out where he is and how he got there. (Wait… this isn’t another trailer for “The Hangover III,” right?)
Fortunately, “Hello” flashes back to what actually happened to Tip — apparently this “lost in the desert” situation includes fun with face paint, a stolen car, and WAY too much moonshine. But T.I. isn’t entirely to blame. Any dude could have easily been lured away by a super sexy woman on the side of the road. So, what have we learned from T.I.’s highly cinematic tale? Well, for one, NEVER pick up hitchhikers, no matter how FOINE they are. Even if they look like One Direction. OK maybe if… NO. Never.

Adam Lambert as a dad is a thing that MUST HAPPEN.
In case you need a reminder, here’s a short list of things that Adam Lambert DOMINATES. He’s successful at being a glam prince, he wins awards for having the biggest heart ever, and he’s a good son/boss/friend. Seriously, this list could go on forever (which it does in our head and could easily be a novel called “Two Billion Reasons Why Adam Lambert Is A Hero”). So, judging by this adorable photo of Adam holding a cute kid on his shoulders, isn’t it obvious that Adam would make the best dad EVER?? Any y’all Glamberts got connections at Hallmark?! ‘Cause this pic needs to be a Father’s Day card, STAT!
The “Never Close Our Eyes” singer shared the “AWW”-worthy photo on Instagram without a caption, because this photo doesn’t even need a caption — the cuteness alone speaks for itself. And while we can’t say for sure whose child it is, we’d like to take a moment to thank them for giving us visual proof that Adam as a dad would make this world a wayyy better place. And if we’re being entirely honest, we have to admit that we’re a liiiittle jealous of this kid. It’s always been our life goal to touch Adam’s AH-MAZING quiff, but this kid scored the opportunity at the ripe age of toddlerhood! (Except that they probably won’t remember it, so go figure.) It’s time to start your own glamily, Lambert! J/K… kind of.

Zooey Deschanel achieves new levels of adorkable in She & Him’s “I Could’ve Been Your Girl” video.
Zooey Deschanel, unabashed Quirky Girl, and one-half of the M. Ward-backed retro-folk outfit She & Him, may have grown her bangs out a bit in her band’s new “I Could’ve Been Your Girl” video (the latest single from the duo’s Volume 3), but we’re pleased to report that despite almost 10 years’ worth of cutesy dresses, brightly colored flats, and “gee-whiz”-style sexless witticisms, we are NOT SICK OF HER YET.
Watch She & Him’s “I Could’ve Been Your Girl” video after the jump.
Directed by Zooey herself, “I Could’ve Been Your Girl” has the adorkable poster girl utilizing every manic pixie move in the handbook as she tries and fails to get M. Ward’s attention in a restaurant. (M. Ward also may or may not be made of stone. That, or he just hasn’t had his caffeine yet.) Grooving with a vibrantly colored team of backup dancers (no doubt plucked straight from the “American Bandstand” set), the “Don’t Look Back” singer visually illustrates the emotional tailspin of “I love him, but he doesn’t know I exist…” as only Zooey Deschanel could. Well, at least now we know what to do the next time we see a cute guy on the subway. This TOTALLY beats writing a Missed Connection.

Miley Cyrus photobombing Justin and Britney circa 2001 is the stuff fantasies are made of.
Hey, Miley Cyrus, we know you’re having an awesome week, what with your new “We Can’t Stop” countdown clock and presenting/eye-rolling Justin Bieber’s win at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, but we just need to hold everything a moment and CELEBRATE a) your Twitter account and b) your posting our favorite JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND BRITNEY SPEARS IN DENIM 4-EVER PHOTO. Except we couldn’t just leave it the way it was; we love what we wish was Britney and Justin’s double denim wedding pic so much, that we took things one step further and made it the photobomb of our fantasies!
Posting the now-famous pic of Britney and Justin attending the 2001 American Music Awards in matchy-matchy denim to Twitter, Miley memed “NEVER FORGET” with the caption “This happened.” Oh, we we’ll never forget this pop cultural nugget, Milers. And just to sweeten the deal, we know how much you like to pop up in people’s photos, AND how badly you probably wish you’d been around to photobomb the Canadian tuxedo’d couple (both parties have certainly improved their fashion sense over the years, especially Mr. “Suit & Tie” over here), so we added/photobombed you in! See? It’s like you were always there! (“The Internet” = Time Machine)
