Taylor Swift opened the 2014 American Music Awards last night with an audacious and very fun performance of her new single Blank Space, currently sitting in the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart, and as you can see above … she was only the perfect choice for the honor. Not only is Taylor ruling the pop music world right now, she appears to be having the BEST TIME EVER doing so. There were a lot of great performances last night on the AMAs but Taylor‘s has to be one of my fave. Enjoy.
She put it ALL out there
Earlier this month we saw the music video for Selena Gomez‘s new single The Heart Wants What It Wants which is very clearly a painful love song to her ex-boyfriend (for now) Justin Bieber. Last night on the American Music Awards, Selena performed The Heart Wants in front of millions of people on the awards show and basically ripped her heart from her chest so that she could expose it for all to see. First the video, then this performance … it’s very obvious that Selena‘s heart wants Justin Bieber in the worst way. Cry. Check out Selena‘s performance above and make sure you keep a box of Kleenex handy.
Very classy acceptance speech
Last night the 2014 American Music Awards went down, and I totally missed it. One glass of pink moscato after the kids went to bed, and I was DUNZO. However, I hear fun things happened, i.e. Iggy Azalea winning her first award ever? That is insane! I had no idea this was her first win—it must have been incredibly exciting. Iggy won for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album, even beating out Eminem—with whom she recently had some beef. Click inside to see what she had to say.
The HFAs were such a MESS
Earlier today we saw video of Johnny Depp seemingly drunkenly slurring his way through an introduction on stage at the Hollywood Film Awards last night and we learned that Jennifer Lopez had to laugh her way through her messy HFAs intro as well. Right now, we learn that actress Kristen Stewart suffered a wardrobe malfunction when her nipple slipped out from in between the holes in her top, flashing everyone in sight at the HFAs last night. Whoops!! More »

"That's the weirdest microphone I ever saw in my life."
Johnny Depp was a presenter at the Hollywood Film Awards in LA, CA last night and as you can see in the video embedded above, homeboy appeared to be a HOT MESS when he took to the stage to introduce the Documentary category. Depp very clearly had to slur his way through his speech and damn near fell over a time or two. It looks to me like Johnny probably had a few too many cocktails in the green room before he went on stage in front of the audience … and multiple cameras. At least he managed to get through his introduction, for the most part, which proves that even as a drunk ass mess, Johnny Depp can still do his job.
Yes, 'Bed Of Lies' is a NEW song
Last month we learned that Nicki Minaj was tapped to host the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards live from Glasgow, Scotland and last night she did her duty as host of the MTV EMAs. Not only did Nicki host the show but she also performed as well. Click the embed above to watch a medley performance that features two of Nicki‘s hit songs — Super Bass and Anaconda — with a brand new track titled Bed Of Lies (featuring Skylar Grey) squeezed in between. The new song sounds interesting, even if the performance last night was mostly Skylar singing and not Nicki rapping. Have a look above if you missed Nicki‘s performance last night … or just want another look.
This look screams, “Shannon, please go plug in your flat-iron immediately.” I LOVE! Ariana Grande stunned all and sundry when she showed up at the 2014 MTV EMAs with her hair—all of it—down. She ditched her signature ponytail (as she sometimes does), and all seemed right with the world. I love the hair, love her outfit in that first pic—well done, Ari! What do you guys think? You likey?

Last month we learned that rapper/singer Nicki Minaj will host and perform at the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards in Glasgow, Scotland next month and to promote the show, MTV has released a brilliantly funny promo video that shows us what the world will be like after Nicki hosts. Honestly, I did not expect to like this promo video as much as I do, I think you’ll like it, too :D
Ellen, Chris, Julia ... then NPH
Last week we learned the brilliant news that actor/showman Neil Patrick Harris signed on to host the 87th annual Academy Awards next year but today we learn that Neil wasn’t the Academy‘s first choice for host. In fact, he was the 4th choice for the gig … behind Ellen DeGeneres (who was the first choice, who was reportedly BEGGED to host again) and a couple of other funny folks. Personally, I think NPH is the ONLY choice to host the Oscars next year but, apparently, the Academy believed otherwise. More »
The 87th Annual
Welp, it’s official … next year’s broadcast of the 87th annual Academy Awards is going to be MUST WATCH because we learn today that actor Neil Patrick Harris has just been announced as the show’s host. NPH, as you should be aware, has enjoyed a pretty spectacular year this year … he won a Tony Award for his work in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, he got married to his longtime partner David Burtka and he just published his autobiography. Next February, he will add Oscar host to his stellar resumé. Woot!! More »
