Although twerking will not be required, Skidmore College, located in Saratoga Springs, NY will be offering a summer sociology course focused on Miley Cyrus. The course is called, “The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media,” and will be taught by Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology, Carolyn Chernoff.

After Cyrus’ performed at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, Chernoff got the idea for the new course. “I was teaching a course called Youth Culture in and out of School, and the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards became the twerk heard ’round the world. I showed that video to my class, and the students had so much to say,” Chernoff stated to the Saratoga Springs newspaper The Saratogian.

Lady Gaga's Career in GIF Form

The 2009 VMAs Performance: Lady Gaga ended her first major televised performance hanging from the ceiling with blood splattered across her chest. And of course the question on everyone's mind was, where does she go from here?

The Dress of Many Kermits: One of her first true controversies, people seriously offended that the singer turned the felt star into so much scrap. Also, supposedly she was making a point about fur or something?

The Sparkler Bra: Debuting in her Bad Romance music video, the sparkler bra was both clever and outrageous -- Madonna's cone bra turned up to 11.

The Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls Are Possibly Teaming Up for a Possible World Tour

In an effort to bring about world peace and happiness, Brian Littrell of the Backstreet Boys told the U.K. newspaper, The Sun, “We are actually in early talks about maybe doing a world tour together with the Spice Girls.” Following this act, angels sung, mankind rejoiced, and eternal bliss descended upon the earth.

Okay well maybe not entirely, but close enough.

During the late 90s, these two pop mega-groups took the world by storm with their catchy tunes, charismatic smiles, and killer dance moves, selling out arenas around the world within a moment’s notice. For those who grew up during the era they were more than just pop-stars, they were pop Gods; offering pearls of wisdom with their music and fashion choices. So to hear that they may be teaming up for a world-wide tour is not only the best news since ever, it is life changing.

Until this is confirmed, we will keep our fingers, toes, and arms crossed. This is to say, hurry up and make our wish come true Brian, because this is a rather uncomfortable position.

Use Your Current Pop-Culture Obsession to Discover (Non) Blockbusters of the Past

If you liked The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and can't wait for Mockingjay, you might like Bonnie & Clyde:

Sexy, dangerous people on the run from an oppressive government? This is the O.G. of the genre. Starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway at their most impossibly good-looking, Bonnie & Clyde tells the mostly true story of the legendary young outlaws whose infamy quickly outstripped their actual power (sound familiar, Katniss Everdeen?). The film had groundbreaking action sequences and a terrifically complicated portrayal of the young outlaws, their misdeeds and triumphs documented with stunning cinematography. The main difference? The dystopic oppressive government isn’t the distant future but the not-so-distant past of 1930’s America – and the names are just slightly less ridiculous.

Rumors have also been circulating that after Lena Dunham landed last month's cover, Kanye West took it upon himself to confront Anna Wintour about why she didn't put his fiancé, Kim Kardashian, on the cover instead. Apparently it was a heated debate at lunch between the two with Kanye talking nonstop and Anna not being about to get a word in.
