Rihanna & Chris Brown Kissed And Hugged At The VMAs And Everyone Is Freaking Out About It

Well that happened. After Rihanna won the Video of the Year Award for “We Found Love” — a song arguably about the tumultuous relationship she had with ex Chris Brown — she stopped to hug and kiss that very ex on her way back to her seat. Frankly, I’m just relieved they didn’t perform together so…

16 Celebrities Photobombing Other Celebrities

Photobombs are so much more fun when they involve celebrities, especially when famous folks are on both ends of the explosion.

The 2011 MTV VMAs: The Best And Worst Moments

Last night, as the East Coast was coming out of our hurricane cocoons, the music-eratti descended on Los Angeles for the 26th annual MTV Video Music Awards. Now, this awards show is always confusing, mainly because MTV hardly plays music videos anymore, so it seems strange to have an awards show for them. But it’…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The MTV Video Music Awards

The MTV Video Music Awards are kind of hilarious, considering the complete lack of videos played on MTV these days. But at least we can count on one thing from them: insane fashion.

Beyonce Announces She’s Pregnant At The MTV VMAs!

Announcing you’re pregnant on the cover of People? That’s for amateurs. If you’re Beyonce, you tell the world your womb is implanted with Jay-Z’s seed by unbuttoning your sequined jacket after performing “Love on Top,” at the MTV VMAs, rubbing your belly, and dramatically telling the crowd, “I want you to feel the love…

What Does Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress Mean?

Leave it to the Brits to get philosophical about Gaga’s dress, while we Americans are busy being freaked out by it.

Quotable: A Butcher Says Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress Is Cheap, Stanky

“It’s all beef. Her bodice looks like the outside of the rib. Over the shoulder looks like it does come from the shoulder. There are no expensive cuts here, no real steaks. The best you’ve got is the flank steak on top of her head. It’s the cheaper end cuts—not including her. You got about…

Taylor Swift Targets Kanye In VMA Performance

For those who noted that Kanye is actually 33 now, not “32 and still an innocent” as Swift sings in her lyrics, she’s referring to his age at the time of his infamous “imma let ya finish” speech. Kanye, for his part, tweeted after the performance, “Yes I…

It’s Britney, Bitch: Spears To Make A Comeback At The 2008 VMAs?!

Britney Spears filmed two promotional spots for the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, alongside host Russell Brand (from Forgetting Sarah Marshall).
