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."

Jessica LangeTwo-time Oscar-winner Jessica Lange has signed on for Ryan Murphy's mysterious new FX pilot, 'American Horror Story.'

According to Deadline, Murphy and co-creator Brad Falchuk are currently rewriting the show to make Lange's part a full-fledged third lead. Not much is known about the pilot, other than it follows a therapist, his "force-to-be-reckoned-with" wife (played by 'Friday Night Lights' star Connie Britton) and now Lange as their nosy neighbor.

The series hasn't been picked up yet, but with an all-star cast and pedigreed creators, it seems like a sure thing for the fall season.

Jared Leto Gives Chelsea Handler a Sex Toy, She Mocks His MulletJared Leto is the lead singer of the band '30 Seconds to Mars,' which just recently won the MTV Video Music Award for "Best Rock Video." (And -- oh yeah -- Jared is also an actor.) On 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), Leto showed up to present Chelsea with a gift, and then the two of them discussed his current "trendy" haircut.

Handler and Leto both appeared on the 'VMAs.' And apparently, based on that show, the actor has come to the conclusion that Chelsea is into spanking. So he presented the host with her very own spanking paddle. How considerate!

Usher and Chelsea Handler Agree: Justin Bieber Is a "Ladies' Man" (VIDEO)

Usher and Chelsea Handler Agree: Justin Bieber Is a 'Ladies' Man'R&B singer Usher is the man who essentially "discovered" Justin Bieber. Usher is also pretty smooth with the women, or the "ladies," if you prefer. On 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), Usher stops by to discuss how Bieber is following in his footsteps -- and Chelsea Handler is there to confirm Justin's "skills."

First off, Chelsea wants to know if the 16-year-old Bieber has outstripped Usher in terms of flirting: "Do you think that you're more of a ladies' man than he is, or is he kind of schooling you?" Hmm. A good question. Has the student become the master?

Chelsea Recaps Her Experience Hosting the 'VMAs,' Curses the Haters (VIDEO)

Chelsea Handler Curses, Recaps Her Experience on the 'VMAs'Everyone else is probably still recovering from last night's 'MTV Video Music Awards' -- especially Taylor Swift and Kanye West, but also all of us viewers who had to deal with witnessing the whole Taylor/Kanye feud yet again. Meanwhile, 'VMA' host Chelsea Handler is already back at work, resuming her normal duties on 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!).

Here is Chelsea's summary of her MTV experience: "I had a really great time last night, and for anyone who thinks that I didn't do a good job, f*ck off!" She also added that she got "pretty f*cked up." Oh, Chelsea -- such language, young lady! Do you kiss your mother with that mouth? Also, we're assuming and/or hoping that she got "f*cked up" after the show -- not during or before it.

Taylor Swift Sings New Song at VMAs 2010 About Feud With Kanye (VIDEO)

Taylor Swift Forgies Kanye West, Calls Him 'Innocent' - but Kanye Strikes BackThe whole world remembers what took place at last year's 'MTV Video Music Awards.' You do remember, right? While singer Taylor Swift was accepting the award for "Best Female Video," Kanye West crashed the stage. He then interrupted her speech with the now-infamous words, "Taylor ... I'mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time!!!" Well, it's been 365 days since then, and we're still dealing with the fallout from that little incident.

Taylor Swift certainly recalls what happened. And on this year's 'VMAs' (Sun., 6PM ET on MTV), she addressed the controversy with a premiere performance of a song from her upcoming album.

Lady Gaga, in Meat Dress, Wins a Record Eight Times at MTV VMAs (VIDEO)

Lady Gaga Wins a Record Eight Times at 'MTV VMAs,' Accepts Award While Wearing a 'Meat Dress'It was a very Lady Gaga kind of night at the '2010 MTV Video Music Awards' (Sun., 6PM ET on MTV). The singer, who wore a meat dress,
walked away with an unprecedented eight awards -- including what was essentially the grand prize; the "Video of the Year" award for her song 'Bad Romance.'

Gaga changed outfits three times during the show, but received the most attention for her final ensemble: a dress (and purse) made entirely out of meat. Hopefully, the "meat" was fake, not real ... but you never know with Ms. Gaga.

Iconic 64-year-old performer Cher handed out the final award to Gaga in her meat dress. Cher quipped that she was the oldest person at the show with "the biggest hair and the littlest costume."

MTV VMAs 2010: Kanye West's New Song, Lady Gaga's Outfits and More

by Rebecca Adler Warren, posted Sep 13th 2010 1:00AM
Chelsea HandlerOnce a year, MTV puts its reality shows on pause to play music videos. And so the music industry elite (plus Ke$ha) gathered at the 2010 Video Music Awards to sing, dance and don ridiculous-looking fashions.

Chelsea Handler, MTV's first female VMA host in 16 years (seriously, MTV?) started the night out with some advice from D.A.R.E's newest spokesperson, Lindsay Lohan. The jailbird looked haggard and hardened by the clink, but at least Larry Rudolph is already at work rehabbing her career.

Lady Gaga then took the stage with a single-family home on her head and a dove tucked in her crotch. This could've been authentic Gaga until Handler peeked out of the home's garage to start her opening monologue, which riffed on The Situation and Justin Bieber, and practically begged the audience and performers to act out, cause a ruckus and be very, very bad.

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

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 15th 2009 11:00AM
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.

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

by Kona Gallagher, posted Aug 12th 2008 12:25PM
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.
