Did the budget get majorly cut for this year’s award show? Sure seemed like it, given the scaled down event space and the horrendous lineup of performers. Host Russell Brand was either hysterically funny or horribly flat, depending on who you ask, but I think everyone can agree that the British comedian (known for his role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall) was basically off the teleprompter the majority of the time, inciting anger in teen virgins (like Jordin Sparks and the Jonas Brothers) and Republicans (we’re sure Speidi didn’t appreciate his firestorm of insults spewed about President Bush and Sarah Palin). Suffice it to say, if Sparks, the Jonas Brothers, and MTV producers have anything to say about it, Brand will be getting a full body cavity check the next time he goes through immigration — that is, if he’s ever allowed in the States again.

Weekends can’t be all about going out and socializing, especially if your city is about to get hit with residual weather from Hurricane Hannah. The weekend should also be a time to relax and catch up on TV, so The Frisky is adding a new weekly feature that will tell you what cool programs and marathons will air from Saturday morning to Sunday night. This weekend we’re all about The Rachel Zoe Project: Preview Special, Pieces of Me: Britney’s Greatest VMA Moments, the VMAs themselves, the premiere of True Blood, and the next episode of Mad Men.

We’ve all been through a breakup at some point, and oftentimes, there’s one song that gets you through the crying spells or fits of anger.

And contrary to intern Leigh’s advice on How To Save Face During A Breakup, only one threatens violence. We even have a classic told from the perspective of a man being kicked out. Tell us your favorite breakup songs in the comments section. Keep reading »
- What is that short-sleeved, asparagus-colored turtleneck sweater Britney’s wearing — the ’90s called and they want their clothes back.
- Is she really wearing a necklace underneath the turtleneck? Did she not got the memo that one should never wear a necklace with a turtleneck?
- I love that Britney cares enough about life to put a protective cover on her BlackBerry.
- She is wearing an orange athletic watch.
- ZOMG, is that a ring on her wedding ring finger? Perhaps that finger was just feeling empty without one.

Britney Spears filmed two promotional spots for the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, alongside host Russell Brand (from Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Though she’s nominated for an award (Best Female Video for “Piece Of Me”), the pop star, who is recovering from, uh, a rough year, won’t be making a “comeback” performing at this year’s award show on September 7th. Last year, Britney made a serious fool out of herself, sleepwalking through an atrocious performance of “Gimme More”, an event which signaled months’ worth of head-shaving, umbrella-wielding, psychotic breakdown-ing mayhem. But she seems so much better now, like the Britney we know and love! Last year it seemed like MTV set the star up to fail, hoping she would falter for ratings’ sake, but we think she should come back this year and knock some socks off. One more promo, after the jump… [MTV] Keep reading »
The hit song of the summer, I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry, is the soundtrack for a new sexual revolution. From co-ed LUG’s to Hollywood’s hottest stars, girl-on-girl action is steaming up the streets and screens across the U.S. What publicly started with Madonna kissing Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the Video Music Awards in 2003, has grown into a full-on, leggings-style TREND.
