Whitney-Houston-Biennial-evite.jpegBest Biennial of the Week: The Whitney Houston Biennial: I'm Every Woman. There were an overwhelming amount of art shows this week but this one takes after one of the fiercest Whitneys to ever grace us with her earthly presence. The exhibition, which showcases some of New York's most talked about female artists, is on view one day only this Sunday. -- Gabby Bess

Most Ridiculous Mixtape Idea Ever:
HBO will release a new mixtape inspired by 'Game of Thrones' called 'Catch the Throne', which features Big Boi, Wale, Common, and Daddy Yankee. Nice reference to 'Watch the Throne,' guys.

Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX's Clueless-themed video for "Fancy." -- A.S.

Screen Shot 2014-03-07 at 6.25.52 PM.pngSecond Biggest 'Oh God, What Are You Doing' of the Week:
John Travolta's latest shoe polish doll-hair wig. This all must be so exhausting, John. Just do the Oprah OWN interview, move to Hawaii and finally start living. -- E.T.


Best Network Ticklefest: Lena Dunham and The National, on this very sweet SNL promo. Look at Matt Berninger's face! Look at it! -- J.R.
