It was a hard week for Muva this week as she found herself against her soon-to-be ex-­husband Wiz Khalifa, rapper Tyga, and twitter-­beefing the Kardashian­-West­-Jenner clan. But...she took 'em all down with aplomb. -- Tené Young

Saddest News of the Week:

Wired's sex toy roundup. This award goes out to whoever's idea it was to style a fake beaver with a vibrator. Simple. Elegant. Gorgeous. -- Gabby Bess

Best Supergroup of the Week:
The Singles, aka Este Haim, Holly Miranda, Julia Haltigan, Kendra Morris and an actor named Scarlett Johansson. I mean, you had us at Este Haim, but their single "Candy," released today, is good -- I would go so far as to affect a James Lipton accent and call it "a de-light." It also heralds new Holly Miranda music: Miranda's first solo album in five years comes out in May, which is cause for celebration in itself. -- James Rickman

Most Enlightening Twitter Monologue of the Week:
Norm MacDonald's. The comedian gave a blow-by-blow about some of the biggest moments of the SNL 40th Anniversary show, including the Celebrity Jeopardy sketch. The biggest revelation? They originally wanted Eddie Murphy to come out as Bill Cosby in a bit that addressed the comedian's numerous rape allegations but Murphy nixed the idea at the last minute. -- Abby Schreiber

Kim Gordon's dis at Lana Del Ray in her new memoir. Gordon writes, "If she really truly believes it's beautiful when young musicians go out on a hot flame of drugs and depression," Gordon asks, "why doesn't she just off herself?" Damn. -- E.S.

This fake baby flask. Why not just stick with the noble brown paper bag? -- E.S.

Weirdest Way to Get a Tattoo:
Under hypnosis. VICE Netherlands published an account of one writer's experience. Just...no. -- T.Y.

Best Pizza Nail Polish of the Week
: courtesy of Pizza Hut (via Buzzfeed), who decided that we all needed pepperoni varnish in our lives, even if we can't actually buy it -- the line with names like "Say Cheese" and "Voracious Veggie" was made exclusively for winners of a Valentine's Day promotion contest. Thank you anyway, Pizza Hut, and may all our snackwave beauty dreams some-day come true. -- K.T.

Most Intense Car Explosion Vine of the Week feat. Drake:
brought to our attention by the Fader, where some genius matched up the beat drop of Drake's new track "Know Yourself" to a mysterious trunk detonation on the highway. Here's hoping all parties involved were OK. --K.T.
