Aubrey Plaza paid a visit to Jay Leno last night on The Tonight Show and after showing off a mean set of stems (even Ashton Kutcher coudn't help but take a peek) she managed to make everyone feel super awkward, which is, after all, her forte! Plaza excels at rambling, stream-of-conscience type comedy with a heavy dose of sarcasm and last night she was not interested in making Leno's life any easier.

Bruno Mars is fast becoming one of our fave new artists and we have a sneaky feeling that 2011 is his year. It might have something to do with his seven (!)

Either way, our suspicions were further confirmed when we saw him absolutely slay his performance on The Ellen Degeneres Show.
