Britney Spears & Lady Gaga, '2011 MTV Video Music Awards'As always, the 'MTV Video Music Awards' (Sun., 9PM ET on MTV) was a spectacle of sight and sound, filled with the hottest faces and voices in popular music. Jay-Z and Kany West lit up the stage with a duet, while Mrs. Jay-Z, Beyonce, performed and revealed that the couple was expecting.

Lady Gaga presented yet another crazy costume, only this time the craziest thing about it was that she was portraying a man -- her own lover, no less. She stayed in character to present Britney Spears with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, where the pair almost kissed, but Spears said, "I've done that already."

TV Moment of 2009: Kanye Interrupts Taylor Swift at MTV Video Music Awards

by Chris O'Connell, posted Dec 28th 2009 8:00AM
Taylor Swift"Yo Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time."

Words that will live forever in infamy. Sort of. In one of the most baffling awards show moments ever, Kanye West stormed the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards just after Taylor Swift was awarded Best Female Video. Swift, and the rest of America, looked on awkwardly.

Was this really happening? Once everyone remembered who was doing the interrupting, it didn't seem so shocking. Kanye had pulled this sort of act before, once even a couple of years ago at the MTV Europe Music Awards when he crashed the stage after losing an award to French duo Justice.

The Twelve Days of Festivus: Nine on-air breakdowns

Glenn BeckOn the ninth day of Festivus, TV gave to me... nine on-air breakdowns.

Director Alfred Hitchcock once said, "Television has done much for psychiatry by spreading information about it, as well as contributing to the need for it."

Yes, having a camera stuck in your face for an hour or more a day must take a toll on your sanity. Your privacy is virtually limited. Your every move is scrutinized and criticized by faceless meanies. Your therapist is one session away from owning his own fishing trawler.

It's only a matter of time before the grasp of sanity is clipped away like a loose thread on a homemade snowman sweater and you turn into a blubbering, snotty, incoherent mess for all the world to enjoy. These are the personalities who lost it and may or may not have gained whatever "it" is back.

What to Watch Weekend, Sept. 6-7

'True Blood'
(Sun., 9PM, HBO) series premiere
You've gotta hand it to 'Six Feet Under' creator Alan Ball for one of the season's most clever new drama premises: Vampires no longer thirst for human blood, thanks to Tru Blood, a synthetic drink available at the vamps' local supermarket.

That leaves the undead free to (try) to join the mainstream ... if curious, but suspicious humans will allow it. Bayou waitress Sookie (Anna Paquin) is certainly willing, especially when vamp hottie Bill walks into her bar.

But Bill and his kind have a new concern: while vampires are off human blood, humans have discovered that drinking vampire blood makes for a great high, meaning the hunters have now become the hunted.

Michael Phelps set to cameo on EntourageAnnie posted earlier today about Michael Phelps' upcoming hosting duties on Saturday Night Live. The Olympic swimming champ isn't wasting any time capitalizing on his stardom, because now he's also landed a cameo on HBO's Entourage.

According to the World Entertainment News Network, the eight-time gold medal winner will appear as himself in an upcoming episode of the buddy-series, which begins its fifth season on Sept. 7.

Phelps certainly must have some good people working with him, because in addition to hosting SNL, he'll be among the presenters at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 7.

Don't call it a comeback: Britney's VMA promos - VIDEOS

russell brand britney spears vmasWe all know the story: Britney Spears got divorced, shaved her head, beat a car with an umbrella, went to rehab for a little while, and generally acted in an unstable fashion in front of the paparazzi. Then, last year, she was supposed to put all of that behind her and reclaim her rightful crown as a pop princess by performing her new single, "Gimme More" at the MTV Video Music Awards.

So she opened the show--but her performance was more befitting a zombie stripper than a multi-platinum artist. Things continued to go downhill for a while, until her dad stepped in. After that, it was better extensions, visits with her kids and guest spots on How I Met Your Mother. It was good all around.

Now, after several months of relative stability, Britney may be ready for a comeback from her comeback. Along with VMA host Russell Brand, Spears is starring in a couple of promos for the VMAs. The videos are after the jump.

  • Advertisers for this year's MTV Video Music Awards are looking beyond TV sets for and including the network's website for their campaigns.
  • A recent study says the length of an advertsing campaign on TV needs to be about 50% shorter, meaning roughly two weeks long. Otherwise viewers begin grewing weary of the commercials and they're no longer effective.
  • The stars of Desperate Housewives are increasingly being pursued to be spokeswomen/men in both television and print ads.
  • The Campaign for a Commerical Free Childhood has some issues with the way ads are presented during Cartoon Network's new toddler-geared TickleU block of programming.
