    Record of the Year Nominee: Bruno Mars, Grenade
    Bruno Mars says he'd take a grenade for you! But no need to go that far — try these volcano potatoes instead, which "explode" in a tastier way than the typical grenade.

    In just 21 short years, Adele is already a musical force to be reckoned with. What better way to celebrate 21 than with a selection of champagne cocktails?!

    With her party anthem songs, Princess RiRi personifies loud — and hot. So we've found a food that sizzles just like she does.
