Twitter was all about pop stars this week. Katy Perry, Rihanna and Justin Bieber shared photos, and their impressive social followings were there to retweet. There were also photos featuring Louis of pop sensation One Direction and Carly Rae Jepsen of "Call Me Maybe" fame. (See our impressive collection of viral "'Call Me Maybe" videos.)
In addition to the big names in pop, there was also an array of other viral images that represented the past week. Summer officially kicked off all over the world, and the single most popular photo was taken right here in New York City. There was a heroic image for Father's Day, and of course, the 9gag photo of the week.
