For those of us not in the know the word "Bae" may have been heard for the first time form the Pharrell song "Come get it Bae."

Now I am going to be honest with you, the first time I heard the sing I thought he was saying Babe and it just faded out at the end. But alas, he was really saying "Bae" Man what happened to me? I used to be up on all the lingo....anyway TIME magazine itself decided to get to the bottom of this and here is what they found.

Back in the 1500's this word first appeared to describe the sound of a sheep, but now it is used as a term of endearment towards a boyfriend or girlfriend. Or someone you hope to be with someday.

Of course some argue that it is indeed a short cut for the word Babe . So embrace it people, throw it out there and see what happens.
