Check out the year's gotta-have-''It'' things

Check out the year’s gotta-have-”It” things. Braces, Bollywood, and bodacious surfers — what’s not to like?

Sharon Osbourne: MTV

IT READ: VICE MAGAZINE
The brutally honest, low-rent art-and-culture ‘zine — a Canadian expat now based in Brooklyn — entices Jack Black and Mike Myers, and its fashion do’s and don’ts page is a riot. Is it any wonder this motley crew is developing a TV show with HBO?

IT IRONIC T-SHIRT
Your ”Free Winona!” top is so four months ago. Make like David Gest and grab a souvenir tee from one of Liza Minnelli’s seven recent New York shows, cut off the sleeves, and break out the Be-Dazzler!

IT CHICK SPORT: GIRL SURFING
While Hawaiian-themed prints are washing ashore this summer, this distaff diversion has been featured in a recent Sheryl Crow video and will be seen in Universal’s upcoming Michelle Rodriguez drama ”Blue Crush” and the in-the-works ”Girl in the Curl.”

IT TECH TALK: AIRTEXTING
As if teens need another reason to carry cell phones, now there’s this eye-popping feature. Simply type the words (i.e. ”hey there”), wave your phone, and a string of blinking red lights conveys your message into thin air.

IT AIRLINE: JETBLUE AIRWAYS
Bargain basement fares! A très mod ad campaign! DirecTV programming in every leather seat! No wonder this two-year-old carrier — reportedly a favorite of ”Today” anchor Katie Couric — is flying high.

IT COCKTAIL: THE SIDECAR
Long overshadowed by the hussy Cosmopolitan, this speakeasy standard is making a comeback as subtle as its flavor. It’s also got a champion in Busta Rhymes, who sang the praises of its main ingredient — Courvoisier cognac — in one of spring’s biggest hip-hop anthems.

IT SUPER FURRY ANIMAL: THE POMERANIAN
They’re prone to yapping. They look like Phyllis Diller on her worst hair day. And they pee on every f—ing inch of the rug, as frustrated owner Ozzy Osbourne can attest. Freakishly cuddly, just like the metal master himself.
