Miley Cyrus has reached her zeitgeist saturation point several times over, and I would not be upset if I never saw her bare ass or exposed tongue ever again. We’ve just seen too much of Miley (literally) in the past few months, you know? She needs to, like, go on a six-month horseback-riding retreat in Idaho or something. Any regular old photo of Miley on a sweatshirt wouldn’t do it for me (it’d be sort of like the contemporary equivalent of wearing a Che Guevara tee), but the very special (married, ugh) gentlemen behind Beloved Shirts are really onto something with this geometric take on Destiny Hope featuring her creepy Gene Simmons tongue and violated foam finger. It’s equal parts bizarre and strangely artful, almost Picasso-esque in its fractured design. Is the sweatshirt a worthy $59 investment? Probably not, and by the time the 20-day processing period has ended we’ll probably (ah, but a pipe dream) have forgotten all about the troublesome scene in question … but on the other hand, there’s also a chance it could become a collectible commemorative piece from an, um, iconic moment in Miley’s movement. Read: it could potentially be worth something one day! If the world hasn’t folded in on itself yet, that is. Things are not looking good. [Refinery29]
“Probably, while we were underneath the stage, maybe…[Kevin is] so close to the ground he can smell it.”
–Joey Fatone responds to host Kevin Hart’s claim that he let one rip during the *NSYNC reunion performance at the VMAs with a zinger of his own. Genius followup question by the TMZ paparazzo: “Were you winded from the performance?” Clearly he was. [TMZ]
It’s hard to choose the best part of Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, but if I had to pick just one memorable nanosecond, it would be the bored, faintly annoyed reaction Rihanna gave to Miley Cyrus’s out of control tongue-out twerkathon performance of “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines” (with Robin Thicke). Rihanna had the same expression that I put on when my dad tries to explain my tax returns to me or tells me about how much he loves the new John Mayer record: I can it the “when will this be over?” face. Also, she was likely very, very out-of-her-mind high.
With that in mind, we imagined what Rihanna might do when face with some other incredible moments/unbelievable shitshows. Like the following: Keep reading »

Last night was kind of stressful. Between Fashion’s Night Out, the DNC Obama speech and the MTV Video Music Awards there were not enough hours in the night to get it all done. So much TV to watch! So much shopping to do! Bad timing aside, the VMAs did deliver their usual round of well choreographed dance/lip syncing performances (um, I never thought I’d actually like a Taylor Swift song) and host/audience hijinks (Kevin Hart, such a tiny weirdo!). That said, what we really care about is the fashions. And there were so many! Let’s see what the stars wore, shall we?
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 I can’t get too worked up about this other than to say I still hate him even if she doesn’t. Video after the jump! Keep reading »
Tonight, the boy band One Direction will take the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards for a much-hyped performance. This fact is making me feel very old, because all the young people on the internet are freaking out about it and I’m like, “Wait, what is a One Direction?” This stands in stark contrast to my lifestyle in the ’90s, when my love for boy bands–namely the Backstreet Boys–was so intense I spent all my time talking about them, listening to them, watching their music videos, going to their concerts, writing them semi-desperate letters, making artful collages of their headshots, buying behind-the-scenes DVDs, and planning my inevitable BSB wedding. Yep, I knew–and still know–pretty much everything there is to know about the Backstreet Boys, but I know pretty much nothing about One Direction. Here are nine specific discrepancies that my 14-year-old self would be ashamed of… Keep reading »
Nevermind that I’ve never heard any of the songs in this clip because I’m approximately 100 years old, all you need to know is the Snuggie Kid is back, and he is better than ever. The be-Snuggied preteen — who stole our hearts with his pitch perfect rendition of Beyonce’s “Countdown” video — returns to offer his stellar dance moves for the VMA’s “Best Choreography In A Video” award. Is that a thing? Cool, dude. [YouTube]
Did you take a close look at Lady Gaga‘s groin area at the VMAs, when she appeared all night as her male alter ego, Jo Calderone? According to Us Weekly, if you had, you might have noticed a little somethin’ somethin’ down there. (And no, this isn’t a rehash of the rumor from 2009 that Gaga is a hermaphrodite.) According to the mag, Lady Gaga put on fake sideburns and fake stubble to make herself look more convincing, and also sported a prosthetic penis to help her get into character. While I still think her appearance totally bombed, this makes me slightly more interested.
Something that doesn’t? Keep reading »
