Definitive Proof That All The Best '90s Songs Were Hits Of 1999

Definitive Proof That All The Best '90s Songs Were Hits Of 1999: It has been 15 years since we lived in a beautiful time called the '90s. There was the catchy angst of Blink-182, Britney Spears' revolutionary pigtails and a brief period of time in which Michelle Williams was allowed to dance next to Beyonce. The glory spanned a decade, but it's clear that all of the best hits (aside, really, from everything Spice Girls) were from the very last year of the 1990s. Presented without further argument, we bring you definitive proof that 1999 had all of the best '90s songs.

"...Baby One More Time," Britney Spears

"I Want It That Way," Backstreet Boys

"Genie In A Bottle" Christina Aguilera

The 16-year-old actress is lending her powerful voice to this weekend’s World Water Day for The Thirst Project’s Dirty Little Secret Campaign.

For the campaign, the Thirst Project is asking students to take an old plastic water bottle, remove the label, and (using the recipe for “the perfect dirty water”) cook up their best batch of dirty water to carry around in it.

Students will carry this water bottle with them EVERYWHERE during the month of March with the goal of shocking people, getting their attention and getting them to ask , “What the heck is THAT, and WHY are you drinking it?!?” This gives students the chance to have conversations with people about the reality of the global water crisis and how many people suffer from it.

With World Water Day THIS WEEKEND (March 22), all eyes will on The Thirst Project and their goal to raise $50 million in the next decade for Swaziland, Africa, a country with little to no clean water and the highest density of HIV positive people in the world.

On Her 55th Birthday, Barbie Is #Unapologetic

On Her 55th Birthday, Barbie Is #Unapologetic: Happy Birthday, Barbie! The world's most famous doll turns 55 today and she's looking fab, without even the tiniest hint of plastic surgery! (We couldn't help ourselves.)

She's really come into her own now that she's well into her fifties and boy, is she aging gracefully or what?

Wearing a slightly updated version of the swimsuit she first wore at her world debut in 1959's New York Toy Fair, Barbie is modeling alongside the likes of supermodels Lily Aldrin and Chrissy Teigen in Sports Illustrated's 50th Anniversary Swimsuit Issue. We wonder how she keeps her figure?

Her appearance has caused a bit of a stir from bloggers and parents who are worried about the message Barbie sends to young girls about body image. Barbie herself had to put forth a statement about her daring decision to become a Sports Illustrated covergirl, with the hashtag, "#unapologetic."

Every year Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit drums up conversation and controversy...In 2014, does any women in the issue seriously need permission to appear there?...The word "model like the word "Barbie," is often dismissed as a poseable plaything with nothing to say. And yet those featured are women who have broken barriers. established empires, built brands, branched out...Today, truly anything is possible for a girl...Pink isn't the problem. "Barbie" dolls aren't the problems. Models choosing to pose in a bikini aren't a problem. The assumption that women of any age should only be part of who they are in order to succeed is the problem.

Whether you love her or hate her, the iconic doll has certainly earned her place in history. Here are some things that will probably surprise you about the 55-year-old and change the way you see her:

1) She's got something in common with Hillary Clinton.

Drive. Check. Leadership. Check. Presidential dreams? Check. Barbie has run for president a total of six times! She first ran in the early 90s and hasn't given up since. Talk about persistence.

2) We're not really sure what her real hair color is, nowadays.

The style chameleon has had at least 50 different hair colors in her lifetime, from her signature platinum blonde, to red, brown, to yes, it would appear, white. Silver power!

3) She's still got it.

More than half a century after her creation, Barbie is still an incredibly popular toy across the globe. In 1959, 300,000 dolls were sold. Now in 2014, a Barbie doll is purchased every three seconds somewhere in the 150 countries where they are sold.

4) She likes younger men.

Barbie was created March 9, 1959. Her beau, Ken, wasn't born for another two years and two days to be exact. We'd like to think she'd be a cougar.

5) Her real name is...

In true 1950s style, Barbie's real name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. She was named after founder Ruth Handler's daughter. It was one of the most popular baby names of the 1950s.

6) She was made to promote girl power.

"My whole philosophy of Barbie was that through the doll, the little girl could be anything she wanted to be. Barbie always represented the fact that a woman has choices," creator Ruth Handler said.

Today, Barbie continues to preach girl power, trying to show girls they can be whatever they dream of becoming. In just 55 years, she's managed to have a whopping 150 careers. "Isn't it time we teach girls to celebrate who they are? Isn't there room for capable and captivating? It's time to stop boxing in potential. Be free to launch a career in a swimsuit, lead a company while gorgeous, or wear pink to an interview at MIT. The reality of today is that girls can go anywhere and be anything," Barbie said in a release.

7) She's a thoroughly modern doll.

The reality of today is that girls can go anywhere and be anything. They should celebrate who they are and never have to apologize for it.

— Barbie (@Barbie) February 22, 2014

She's tweeting up a storm and is also active on Facebook with the most followers of any doll. Ha. Take that American Girl!

8) She's the same age as...

If Barbie were a real-life person, she'd be the same age as other celebs born in 1959, like Emma Thompson, Marie Osmond, and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. Wow.

9) Like any baby boomer, she's witnessed plenty of historic moments and changes in the modern era.

Barbie's life can only be described as colorful. She came into existence around the era of old-school glamour, became an astronaut during the space race, discoed her way through the 1970s, broke the "plastic ceiling" as a woman in business in the 1980s, entered politics in the 1990s, and even survived a high-profile breakup in 2004. She's gone from just a pretty face to becoming an athlete, teacher, vet, and even a Naval officer. She really has proven she won't be confined by a box.

Happy Birthday, Barbie!


Lea Michele Stuns In Black And White Mini Dress

Lea Michele Stuns In Black And White Mini Dress: Lea Michele looked fantastic in a black and white mini dress while signing copies of "Louder" at The Grove in Los Angeles on Feb. 8. The "Glee" actress has been candid about the tortured process behind the album, which deals with the loss of her late boyfriend Cory Monteith.

"Listening to it, it’s therapeutic and difficult," she said, "It will always represent the most devastating thing that’s every happened to me in my whole life. But at the same time, music is therapy. It’s been therapy for me in the entire grieving process and in my entire life."




Selena Gomez Wears A Crop Top For Her New Adidas Commercial

Selena Gomez Wears A Crop Top For Her New Adidas Commercial: Crop tops have become a staple in Selena Gomez's wardrobe. So it's no surprise the star opted to wear one for her new Adidas commercial.

Gomez was photographed in a cropped long-sleeved shirt while filming an ad for Adidas Neo in New York City on Tuesday, March 11. The belly-baring promo is for a spring-summer 2014 collection, according to E! News.

The gig comes after Gomez spent the weekend with Justin Bieber, who she may or may not be dating again. After Bieber uploaded videos of himself and Gomez doing a sexy dance to John Legend's "Ordinary People," many wondered if the exes are back on. It's worth noting she wore a crop top in those videos too.
