By now you've seen this dress that's literally driving the world crazy and drumming up a load of debate online - is it black and blue or white and gold? Turns out, not everyone is seeing it the same way, which is creating some major frustration. I saw it as white and gold, then scrolled down to read more about it and when I scrolled back up, it was black and blue...witchcraft!

If you want more details on why people are seeing it differently, check out Wired's 'The Science of Why No One Agrees on the Color of This Dress.' Oh, and it's interesting to note that, in reality, the dress is black and blue. WTF.

Of course, we just had to see what celebrities were saying about the dress and, as you imagine, the results definitely varied.

Demi Lovato joked: "Wow. We now live in a world where not only can anyone become famous, but ANYTHING can too." Then she totally got into, sharing what she saw: "Hold on...So people actually see white and gold?"

Joe Jonas had a keen observation: "The dress looks like a dress. That's all." Lucy Hale tweeted: "I saw white and gold, then i saw blue and black. now I'm confused...either not gonna be wearing that dress..." Chrissy Teigen maybe said it best when she mocked this fashion choice: "F**k the dress it's heinous." (Then again, she added later, "I have read the explanations and still cannot fathom how ANYONE sees white and gold and I think they're attention-seeking LIARS.")

Ariana Grande is so over it, tweeting: "if one more person asks me what color i think this damn dress is," adding, "i see grey and blue and ugly."

Justin Bieber kept it short and sweet, saying, "And for everyone asking I see blue and black," while Taylor Swift seemed as confused as most of us, writing: "I don't understand this odd dress debate and I feel like it's a trick somehow. I'm confused and scared. PS it's OBVIOUSLY BLUE AND BLACK"

Mindy Kaling's The Mindy Project almost shut down over the debate! She went on a lengthy rant about the dress: "IT'S A BLUE AND BLACK DRESS! ARE YOU F**KING KIDDING ME," adding, "I'm not ready for people to make jokes about the dress yet...I think I'm getting so mad about the dress because it's an assault on what I believe is objective truth. And if people disagree with my objective truth I get so angry I want to destroy that way of thinking because it is just viscerally SO WRONG"

One final hilarious thought from Camp Mindy: "This dress thing is worse than the Sony hack to me"

For Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, it was a house divided, as Kim tweeted: "What color is that dress? I see white & gold. Kanye sees black & blue, who is color blind?"

What colors do you see?
