" Mariah's fans, dahhhhling, make up the "lambily," of course, and Worldwide Lamb Day suspiciously resembles the diva's birthday.

Apparently Selena Gomez wasn't quite ready to leave the neon-splattered emotional hellscape of "Spring Breakers" just yet. The first sounds one hears on her sassy new album are an oxygen-sucking sub-bass, trap snares and a note to her fellow party nihilists that she only parties this hard on her birthday (and every day is her birthday).
