Here’s how Duana described Britney Spears to me on text last night: “She’s of our generation. B is an elder here tonight.” Why are we so old?! Did you know any of the people on that pre-show? Like that guy who kept performing other people’s songs the whole time? Trotsky…or something? Of course, I know he wasn’t named after a Marxist politician and the inspiration behind Snowball but that’s what I kept hearing. Full Story

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

At the beginning of the night, my post on Justin Bieber was supposed to be about his hair. I love his hair. And I'm not even done offending you. While some are comparing JB's hair to Brad Pitt, or that woman who had all those kids, my first thought when I saw it was... River Phoenix.  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

Well I guess that’s the last time we ever really believe that someone would just host an award show without having anything to promote… Did Miley Cyrus get her ass dragged by Nicki Minaj? If it was real, she looked terrified. If it was fake, she didn’t step back hard enough to make a difference. Full Story

It’s not like we weren’t expecting it, right? I opened the blog with it on Friday – click here for a refresher. Miley Cyrus talked sh-t about Nicki Minaj to the New York Times and, oh, 72 hours later they would meet at the VMAs and this is what happened. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

MTV says that they’ll let Miley do whatever she wants on Sunday at the VMAs. And Miley says that MTV will be letting her do whatever she wants when she’s hosting the VMAs. So the question is: what does “whatever Miley wants” look like right now? Check her Instagram.  Read Full Intro

US Weekly reported recently that Sandra Bullock has a new boyfriend. Click here for a refresher. At the time, they didn’t reveal his name. But as I noted in the original post here, given how private she is, and how locked down that wedding was, it would have to be serious if she’d taken him to Jennifer Aniston’s wedding. Full Story
