As we were rounding up the greatest pop music GIFs from 2013, we realized that this past year has certainly been one for the record books.
Remember when Beyonce’s surprise album dropped? What about Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera’s dueling "Do What U Want" duet on "The Voice”? And, let's not forget about the time that Kanye West made sweet, sweet motorcycle love to Kim Kardashian!
Oh, wait. THAT WAS JUST THE LAST MONTH.
For real now, let's begin at the beginning, when 2013 started out with a bang so big that it literally blew out the Superdome.
What followed suit was a total "Suit & Tie" blowout where guys navigated treacherously "Blurred Lines" to "Get Lucky" -- a total boys' club except for a couple of Disney princesses and one label-defying "Q.U.E.E.N."
Suddenly, the debauchery came to a screeching halt with six fateful words: "HURRY UP WITH MY DAMN CROISSANTS." Record scratch! Mic drop! Party's over, guys!
Now that the boys had had their fun, though, the ladies were ready to get to "Work, Bitch." They roared! They twerked! They... did whatever this is with Marina Abramovic! Why? Because they're grown women, and they can do whatever they want.
How about we give our faves the #BowDown they deserve? Sit back, relax, stretch out those scrolling fingers, and enjoy our Year In Pop #covermoment GIF Wall!
