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

Have you heard it? Do you like it? Do you LOVE it? I LOVE it. Bought it right away and have it on repeat while I’m working. FourFiveSeconds will be on both Rihanna’s upcoming R8 (whatever she decides to call it) and on Kanye West’s new album. And now everyone is speculating about what sound Rihanna will be taking since this is so raw and stripped in comparison to the heavy dance beats she gave us last time. Full Story
