Justin Timberlake didn’t bend over and start heave-sobbing after a performance at the VMAs. But his weeping did get a shout out last night – and not because Ashton Kutcher punked him while he was high. As mentioned earlier, Kanye referenced JT’s tears during his Vanguard acceptance soliloquy. Full Story

You know the next line. And it was. Would you rather they get up and thank their Lord and lawyer, read from a piece of paper, name all the contributors, and cry “I love you” to the fans… Or would you rather whatever it was that Kanye gave us last night? A therapy session? A sermon. Full Story

For a while it was looking like Taylor Swift had more than just Katy Perry to deal with. Nicki Minaj shut her down. Some online sh-t with Avril Lavigne got stirred up last week. And Kanye was receiving the Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs. On Saturday night in San Diego, Taylor settled amicably with Avril, bringing her onstage to sing Complicated together. Full Story

MTV announced today that the recipient of this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award to be presented at the VMAs on Sunday is Kanye West. This per the announcement: Throughout his career, West has blended musical and visual artistry to powerful effect. From his trilogy of videos for “Jesus Walks,” to the mind-bending animation of “Heartless,” to the arresting imagery of “Bound 2,” he’s pushed boundaries and delivered something new with every successive video. Full Story

Beyonce stepped out yesterday after MTV nominated her for 5 VMAs, including Video of the Year. And they’re saying she’s a co-frontrunner in the category with Taylor Swift, of course. And, well, that just reminds us all of 2009, doesn’t it? I’ve asked you this already but it’s worth asking again – now that 6 years have passed, and you look back on that incident…do you still feel the same outrage? Kanye West was objecting to Taylor’s video winning over Beyonce’s Single Ladies. Full Story

(Lainey: a new feature because celebrities can’t help over-sharing on social media…) First off, she’s stealing a phrase from a reality TV star. Second, can you break the internet when no one gives a sh*t about you anymore, Lindsay Lohan? It’s cringe-worthy. Does she even feel embarrassment at this point?   Break the Internet with clothes on😎. Full Story

This is the only new blonde I want to talk about from Paris Fashion Week, even though there’s been another new blonde who decided to cockblock the runway. At least Jared Leto’s is for a role, you know? Anyway, yesterday I defended it, wondering whether or not it was the outfit – turtleneck, blazer, etc. Full Story

Last night in New York. At The Spotted Pig. Taylor Swift and Kanye West were both there, papped leaving within minutes of each other after meeting for dinner supposedly to discuss their upcoming collaboration. This shouldn’t be a surprise as he told Ryan Seacrest last week: “Yeah, she wants to get in the studio and we’re definitely going to go in. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Did you know that both Taylor Swift and Kanye West were born in the Year of the Snake? If you’re a Snake too, here’s what my ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken, is advising for the Year of the Goat/Sheep: Might not be the best year for personal relationships and, in particular, business relationships could be strained.  Read Full Intro

After all these years, do you feel differently now about what Kanye West did to Taylor Swift at the VMAs? “Imma let you finish”? It’s still a dick move, yes. But would you change Gossip History and remove it from the Gossip Books? I’m not even sure Taylor would want that expunged from the archives. Full Story
