The Internet basically exploded the other day when Miley revealed her drastically different haircut on Twitter. The cut is being described as a mashup between Twiggy, Tinker Bell and Harry Potter‘s Draco Malfoy. Not everyone can pull it off like Miley, so Pop Crush decided to play around with Photoshop and see how other celebs look with her new do.
The result? Most people can’t pull off the Miley Cyrus haircut.

Miley Cyrus retweeted a message from her long lost bun of hair. Although the bun has poor grammar, we respect that it isn’t holding hard feelings against Miley, who recently cut it off in favor of a Twiggy-esque cut. The bun even advised Miley on how to tell off haters. Message: If you’re going to tell people off, it’s always more legitimate if you include Chanel’s logo.
In fact, I don’t actually pay for therapy. Instead, I read Ed Sheeran’s tweets every morning and then repeat them 3o times over in front of the mirror as a daily affirmation.
We’re surprised Miley Cyrus let strangers babysit her dog. Has she not seen the new trailer for Seven Psychopaths?!? YELP.
Good to see Mac Miller is inspired by an extensive collection of music.
That was the day Conor Maynard retired music. After you get a sartorial compliment like this from Wiz Khalifa, you really can’t go up.

Here at ANDPOP, we love hearing how different artists interpret one song. By changing the tempo and instrumentation, artists can alter the vibe of a track entirely. Suddenly, you might start digging a song you hated in the first place. Our minds were blown when we heard some amazing covers of Skrillex and One Direction. This week, we heard ten covers of Fun’s “Some Nights” that we can’t stop replaying.

Taylor Swift and Pinterest are basically the two main factors that raise the expectations of young people today. Over the past two days, Taylor Swift has made us all look within and consider our lives as a whole. Let me count the ways that Taylor has raised our expectations:
1. She just released an awesome new breakup anthem called “We Are Never Getting Back Together” and announced that her new album Red is coming out on Oct. 22.
2. She is dating a Kennedy. Swift’s budding romance with 18-year-old Conor Kennedy has been going on for months now, though they really blew up after being spotted at the so-called Kennedy Compound over the July 4th weekend. She’s also buddy buddy with his grandmother Ethel.
3. The newest news is that Taylor bought a house — nay, mansion — that’s mere feet away from the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port MA, on Cape Cod. According to People, Swift spent $4.9 million for a 13-bedroom home. Steal of a deal.
This is possible for anyone to do, right? Oh, no? Drat.
Check out the photos below:
Back when One Direction was filming the music video for “What Makes You Beautiful” on a sunny beach in Malibu (must be nice), they sat down on the sand, gathered Kumbaya-style and sang Oasis’ classic “Wonderwall.”
In the video, Niall sits on a cooler playing the guitar like Noel Gallagher in his flashy aviators, while they all harmonize in front of the surf. The video is kind of retro One Direction (check out Liam’s hair!) but it’s still a good cover to wrap up this last bit of summer.
Their rendition has received harsh criticism from 1D haters who say British music has descended from the likes of The Beatles and Oasis to One Direction. @supersonicyy0uth tweeted: “one direction have covered Oasis is that why it’s raining so much, the sky is crying?”
You guys!! China has it’s very own version of The Voice and they discovered a teenage girl who could become a new Adele. She sang the British powerhouse’s “Someone Like You” and stunned the judges, some of whom fought back tears. All four judges turned their chairs around.
Do you think she compares?
Kim Kardashian’s cameo in DJ Khaled, Rick Ross and Kanye West’s hybrid music video for ”I Wish You Would/Cold” is pretty brief, nevertheless it must sting Kris Humphries. Kardashian appears when Kanye raps: “And I’ll admit I had fell in love with Kim/ Around the same time she had fell in love with him.” Of course, the “him” Kanye is referring to is Kim’s ex-husband Kris Humphries.
The black and white, grainy music video was directed by Hype Williams, who has directed videos for Coldplay, Kesha, Nicki Minaj and Jay-Z. I wouldn’t say this particular video is his most conceptual considering it essentially consists of the three guys rapping in a long underground tunnel. If the shaky camera work makes you too queasy, skip ahead to 5:10 to get a glimpse of Kimye.

Next time you’re in an intimate situation and either party decides it’s a good idea to go sans condom, remember the safe sex rap. In fact, memorize the lyrics so you can handily resort to rapping the message to your partner.
Actually, that would be the perfect way to DESTROY the mood, so whatever you do DON’T start spewing out 90s rap in bed, or wherever you are (there are more effective ways to get your message across). Even if this safe sex rap isn’t immediately helpful to your present day bedroom qualms it’s probably hilarious enough to satiate the bottomless pit where you store 90s nostalgia.
There are a few things we can deduce from this rap:
1. Even without the disclaimer, we can tell this PSA is from the 90s (1993 to be exact) because it reeks of washed-out denim, varsity jackets and round-framed glasses.
2. We’re pretty sure that wherever this guy is, he’s known as the male version of Robin Sparkles. And it’s likely that he still hasn’t gotten laid — that’s the natural albeit unfortunate consequence of referring to sex as the dilly dally.
3. All these students, who submitted this video project for their class “Acting for the Camera,” probably FAILED. But we respect their positive intentions — not everyone their age can reject the hyper-sexualized messages rampant on the original 90210. That show is like Sex Kryptonite.

Today Psy released a slightly unnecessary but still highly entertaining female version of his viral hit
“Open Condom Style” “Gangnam Style,” just in case you were yearning for a higher pitched version to sing along to.
The second version, which is called ”Oppa You’re My Style,” features HyunA, a South Korean singer and dancer from K-Pop group 4Minute. The lyrics have been mended to come from a female’s point of view. HyunA claims Psy is “just her style” while dancing with him in a short white dress — though we’re missing the intensity of the horse riding move from the first music video.
While I want to say I won’t be addicted to this track, that would be a complete lie since it’s already stuck in my head.

There’s a legit problem in this world when a person doesn’t have enough money to buy real underwear and resorts to wearing taped up grocery bags as fake Nike shoes, but still holds on to their overpriced iPad because of its stunning retina display.
Sketch comedy group OldePayphone highlights the unique homeless situation in Los Angeles when a young couple runs into two homeless writers, one of which creatively uses plastic wrap as transition lenses. The aptly named “iBum L.A.” sketch comes from the the same comedy group that brought us “CompetiBitch” last week. Hilarz!

Robert Pattinson must have expected the obligatory, intrusive breakup questions when he appeared on Jon Stewart last night but according to The Daily Show host everything is less scary when you have the ultimate breakup remedy on hand — a carton of ice cream and a spoon.
The Twilight and Cosmopolis star joked about not knowing how to deal with slightly intimidating questions about his scandalous breakup with Kristen Stewart, who
“had a moment of indiscretion” cheated on him with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. ”God, I thought we already prepared this. I had a joke prepared!” he told Stewart. “I was all set up and ready to go.”
You have to give Pattinson some credit. For an actor who’s already quite
reserved awkward in interviews it must be tough for him to handle such personal questions.
Luckily Stewart had some helpful breakup advice for RPatz: “last time I had a bad breakup, Ben & Jerry’s got me through some of the tougher times. So I thought you and I could bond over this and talk about ‘boy, you are better off, kick her to the curb.”

We basically had a slumber party convo with Princess Taylor Swift last night when she hosted a live web chat with the world on YouTube. She told us about a week ago that she had MAJOR news and she didn’t disappoint. Swift revealed that she has a new album coming out on Oct. 22 called Red and a new single called “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” She also unveiled her new album cover (above).
Although Swift is so young, she’s also like an oh-so-wise Yoda when it comes to relationships. She said about the songs on the album: “They’re all pretty much about the kind of tumultuous crazy, insane, intense, semi-toxic relationships that I’ve experienced in the last two years. And all those emotions, spanning from intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion, all of that, in my mind all of those emotions are red. There’s nothing in between — there’s nothing beige about those feelings.
She hosted the live chat from Nashville in front of fans from across the world. The album will have 16 songs, including the title track. It also features collabs with several artists and songwriters, including Ed Sheeran. Apparently Swift and Sheeran wrote the song while sitting on a trampoline.
She played “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” during the chat and joked “it’s a really romantic song that’s to my lovely ex-boyfriend.”

I’m happy to see that a good part of Ricky Gervais’ humour still comes from making fun of his friend Karl Pilkington. In his latest web series Learn English with Ricky Gervais he comedically teaches foreigners how to speak “proper English” by having a regular, subtitled conversation with Pilkington.
In episode one, they teach viewers completely useless but hilarious phrases like “he is bald” and “you smell.” They also have hypothetical conversations about drinking tea and waxing balls. Ricky asks Pilkington quite seriously in a scenario-based activity: “my balls are very hairy, can I have them waxed please?”
The first episode is currently available for free on iTunes.

My headline “which cat is the bigger jerk?” is misleading, because clearly 99.9 percent of all the fluffy felines in this world are assholes. Even my cat Farley (above) is one of the most unfriendly creatures I’ve come across (but I still love him). For example, every time I try to hug him he uncomfortably squirms out of my loving embrace — biting my forearm if he feels it’s necessary — runs to a corner and starts cleaning himself like my arms were covered in mud and disease. As he cleans himself he glares at me with utter distaste and superiority.
Anyway, these two cats are similarly inclined toward a rebellious nature. Our competitors in this battle are Teddy and Loki (of course). Who do you think is the bigger jerk?
Competitor One: Teddy knocks things over just ’cause
Competitor Two: Loki likes his space
Loki reigns supreme in this battle. While Teddy puts up a fierce fight, he only knocks over one medicine bottle, whereas Loki is unstoppable.

I find it ironic that this disruptive cat, who miraculously falls through a ceiling toward two students, is interrupting a class at the University for Peace. Get it? Because he’s a disturber of the peace and… okay, that was a poorly laid out joke (if you can call it that) but the video will speak for itself.
THE CEILING CAT IS WATCHING YOU. HE ALWAYS WINS.
