Taylor Swift Was Really Mad At Kanye’s VMA Speech

kanye taylor This story is just obnoxious enough to make you want to roll your eyes, but also realistic enough to be true, so let's go with it. As we know, Taylor Swift presented Kanye West with his Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs on Sunday night, but she only agreed to do that because they "agreed to talking points" before the actual show. When Kanye went off-script, TSwift panicked and wasn't happy about it. Uh oh! From Radar: Playing off of their rocky VMA history, MTV slated Swift to present Kanye with his award — ...

Has Tom Cruise’s Mother Gone Missing?

tom cruise mom The Internet is freaking out after hearing reports that Tom Cruise's mother, Mary Lee South, has either gone missing or died. The 78-year-old hasn't been seen since Easter, when she had brunch with Tom at the Scientology Center in Los Angeles, but for some reason people are only talking about it now.

Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” Video Is Here

taylor swift wildest dreams Taylor Swift has been releasing music videos rapidfire, it seems, and she's not about to stop anytime soon. Her latest offering is "Wildest Dreams", the African safari-themed clip that also stars Scott Eastwood and is basically very over-the-top and very Taylor. The video premiered at the VMAs last night and was directed by Joseph Kahn. Also, because Taylor is a Perfect Human, all proceeds from the song will be “donated to animal conservation efforts through the African Parks Foundation o...

Justin Bieber Cried Mystery Tears At The VMAs

justin bieber Justin Bieber apparently hasn't performed at the VMAs for five years, but last night he made a triumphant (???) return to perform "Where Are U Now" and "What Do You Mean" and it was rather average. Both songs are okay ("Where Are U Now" is actually amazing), but the most memorable part of the performance was when Justin started crying. Why the tears? What was so emotional about the performance? Is Justin Bieber dealing with depression? Was he scared when he had to float in mid-air? None of it makes...

Nicki Minaj Calls Out Miley Cyrus At The VMAs

miley cyrus nicki minaj In case you missed it, there was some major drama last week when Miley Cyrus gave an interview to the New York Times in which she tried (and failed) to call Nicki Minaj out over the whole Taylor Swift fiasco. Miley has literally no idea what she's talking about, but still felt the need to comment on the situation, saying "What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind." Miley needs to basically shut the hell up forever, but she went on and on from there, basi...

Kanye West Is Running For President In 2020

kanye west vmas I should warn you now that last night was the MTV Video Music Awards, so most (read: likely all) of the stories today will be about What Went Down, because there was a lot. One of the biggest things to come out of the evening was Kanye West's acceptance of the Video Vanguard Award, and more particularly his speech that accompanied it. In typical Kanye fashion, the 13 minute rant included him slamming MTV, giving nonsensical commentary on the whole Taylor Swift "I'mma let you finish" fiasco fr...
