We feel like we’ve really let you down, you guys. When we made our 10 VMA Celeb Feuds post, we were foolishly betting on old standby beefs like Drake vs Chris Brown, or Kanye vs anyone who Kanye doesn’t want talking into a mic at that exact second. We should have opened our minds to more unlikely disputes, like the Demi Lovato/Katy Perry beef we can only assume has started now that Katy kissed One Direction‘s Niall Horan…immediately before he went to dinner with Demi. Man, this feud is not going to be pretty. Both of them wear a lot of rings!
According to Us Magazine, The Voice judge and the British boy bander stopped by Pink Taco after the VMAs…alone. It certainly wouldn’t be the first hint we’ve gotten of a Niall/Demi romance, but it’s probably the first to be immediately followed by Horan tweeting about kissing another woman. We could assume both he and Katy are joking, but you watch. The second we brush off a burgeoning beef, that’s when the nightclub brawl starts. Sometimes we feel like we need a celebrity beef Yoda to teach us how to spot potential A-list antagonists. No, you’re right. The power to predict celebrity beefs has been with us all along…inside all of our hearts.

We don’t mean to make any sort of accusations here, but if we didn’t know better, we’d think Live! With Kelly and Michael was purposely giving Ryan Lochte difficult strip trivia questions this morning to make him take his shirt off! And that would be…wrong? Yeah, okay, that would be morally wrong! The Olympic swimmer stopped by Live! to hype his new workout DVD, both with his words and with the body he was quickly made to unveil in front of the studio audience…and the rest of the world. Okay, upon repeated viewings we guess the strip trivia questions weren’t entirely impossible. Ryan did guess that the Titanic was the first ship to have a heated pool. On the other hand…how many other famous ships are there? Want us to wait while you come up with a list of boat names? See, that’s exactly the kind of question they might have asked Ryan Lochte!
Then Michael Strahan and Kelly Ripa sent Ryan plummeting into the dunk tank, which we’re totally okay with. The dunk tank is the great equalizer; there can be no bias in dunking. We also love how Kelly couldn’t help but emphatically point out how dripping wet Ryan was. His eyes are up there, Kelly! Though to paraphrase Legally Blonde, the nipples are the eyes of the torso…
Here’s one way to start adulthood off on the right foot! One Direction heartthrob Niall Horan is only18 but he’s already doing pretty well for himself, taking last night’s VMAs by storm and catching the attention of none other than Katy Perry. She was apparently really looking forward to seeing the British boyband, tweeting beforehand “If One Direction doesn’t perform on the VMAs I am gonna jump off this ledge.” She’s a big fan, we gather?
Katy got her chance to present Niall and his mates with a Best Pop Video Moonman for their song “What Makes You Beautiful” when she swooped in for a smooch. Yes, he seemed into it. Niall then tweeted a picture of the momentary hookup at Katy, saying “Looks like its official … me and you.” Smooth, dude. But it seemed like Ms. Perry was more than game to play the cougar card. “I’ll be your Mrs. Robinson…” she tweeted back. Looks like she’s got a new Teenage Dream. Hey, it wouldn’t be the first time she met man at the VMAs…

The VMAs ended last night with Taylor Swift performing “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” her latest stinging anthem to relationships gone horribly horribly wrong. It’s not news to say that T-Swizzle has gotten some pretty decent mileage (and record sales) from her heartbreak with high profile dudes like John Mayer, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and god knows how many more. It’s gotta be pretty freaky for a guy to get called out in the form of a hit pop track…but then again, it might be kind of cool. Right? Like being part of an irritatingly catchy piece of history. VH1′s very own Kate Spencer was on the VMA red carpet and asked celebs to weigh in on whether or not they’d like to be the subject of a Taylor Swift breakup song!
Drag Race star RuPaul wasn’t too enthused at the idea, saying he’d rather be in “a Taylor Swift make-up song,” and fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff also wasn’t feeling it. “Too stressful. Seems really stressful. I like that song, but I don’t know if I’d want it to be about me.” Dan Reynolds from Las Vegas rockers Imagine Dragons seemed downright terrified at the thought! “I think that that’s every man’s biggest nightmare. Especially now,” he said. “She puts people on blast. She seems like a sweet girl but then she goes hard.”
This Chris Brown-Rihanna saga’s never going to end is it. And since both of them were going to attend the MTV Video Music Awards, held last night, there was some serious anticipation about whether was something was going to go down. Over the past few months, all signs have led towards to some sort of a reunion, and not just a conciliation. Chris being there at Rihanna’s birthday party, albeit on the down-low. All the hoopla about the Chris-Drake fight over Ri-Ri. Yeah, yeah “allegedly” over Ri-Ri, but c’mon, we all know that it was about her. And let’s not forget Rihanna’s turn with Oprah, where she admitted she felt “protective” about him. Did they two really meet up before she headed to Italy on vacay? While that rumor will never be substantiated, who all here think it happened? Yeah, that’s what we though. Most of you do! That Rihanna-Chris collabo — there’s more to it, guys. We feel it. They’re inching towards a full-on public declaration of re-love. Hah.
Anyhoo, taking all of this into consideration, let’s get down to what happened at the VMAs last night. Rihanna was looking mighty-fine with her new hair and in a white gown that got her onto the best-dressed list for the night. Chris was looking dapper in a steel grey suit. They met. But were there fireworks? Well, that’s for you to decide. MTV has video of them meeting and of a kiss between the two — right in front of everyone. But we can’t tell, due to the angle, if it was a friendly peck hello, or something more passionate. What it does reveal though, is that these two have reached a place that’s more than just civilized. Rihanna looks really happy to see him. So, what gives? And what’s your take on the kiss?

See more of last night’s action after the jump!
Because we haven’t yet seen any of the interviews Kristen Stewart did during her first public appearance since what Kevin Hart calls her “mistake,” we are forced to dip into our imaginations here. As she stepped out to promote On the Road at the Toronto International Film Festival, Kristen looked as spectacular as always in an elegant-but-edgy, floral-print Zuhair Murad dress. But here’s what else we noticed — with this super-feminine dress and her hair up in a high pony-tail, Kristen Stewart looks like Megan Draper’s long-lost sister on Mad Men. On the Road takes place in the beat era, a good 10 years before MM, so this outfit is no homage to Kerouac and company. But you know what a central theme on Mad Men is, right? Adultery. Adultery as a very complex, regrettable but sometimes forgivable and somehow natural tendency of human nature. So, is this another Freudian slip by the girl who seemingly wore her maybe-ex’s T-shirt to the airport yesterday? Something to chew on.

Pound for pound, we think Kevin Hart was a really solid MTV VMAs host tonight. The comedian brought a much needed levity to one of the most earnest awards show we’d seen since…gosh, we’re going to say the Oscars. So it makes sense that Hart delivered the majority of the VMAs most memorable quotes, with a little help from Rebel Wilson and Drake. On a related note, maybe it’s for the best that KStew couldn’t make it after all…
NOOOOOOOOOOO! There is probably no other couple on the planet we would be more horrified to learn are splitting up. This is like Al and Tipper Gore all over again! Despite embodying all our hopes and dreams about “having it all” and “being an amazing comedy duo as well as sensual lovers at the same time,” Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are getting divorced after nine years of marriage. Their rep confirmed the suprising news to People, though we struggle to understand how he or she got the announcement out in between all their choking sobs.
We guess we would be less stunned by the news if we had any inclination that the Parks And Rec star and spouse were having trouble. Someone needs to consult their publicists for tips on how to keep a celeb’s private life on lock. The marriage was Amy’s first, and Arnett’s second; the Up All Night star was previously married to Penelope Ann Miller. The couple has two young sons, 2-year-old Abel and 3-year-old Archie, who is just so chubby and redheaded…oh lord, why? WHYYYYYYYY? Thank god we have the MTV VMAs to watch, or we would be running down the streets, tearing at our clothes and howling.

Cliff Huxtable. Danny Tanner. Dr. Evil. Which of these roles would you cast Cee-Lo Green in, if given the chance? Right, Dr. Evil! The Voice mentor is already bald and has what appears to be an evil cat! Guess Cee Lo will have to save his maniacal cackling and malevolent schemes for his personal life, seeing as how he’s going to be working with NBC to create a sitcom “loosely based on his real life relationship with his ex-wife and children.” Oh, is his ex-wife some kind of supervillainess? Who are we thinking of? Oh, sorry. It was Catwoman. Our bad.
A move to acting does make sense for Cee Lo, though; the singer recently tried his hand at the big screen for the first time, acting alongside Jordin Sparks in Sparkle as some kind of normal human man without any special powers or plans for world domination. According to Deadline, Cee-Lo’s multi-camera comedy will star “Green as a version of himself as he tries to balance his career as a top recording artist and his frenetic home life.” The singer is in final negations with NBC for the deal, so at least he can get a lot of finger tenting and ludicrous demands for absurd amounts of money out of his system now.

We almost inhaled our protein powder this morning when we read a rumor claiming JWoww had gotten engaged to long-time love Roger Mathews. According to the New York Daily News, the Snooki & JWoww star and her manfriend have been affianced “for a while,” but kept their betrothal mum in order not to draw attention from the arrival of Snooki‘s baby Lorenzo. Hmmm, a Jersey Shore star not wanting to steal focus? Yeah, doesn’t really add up to us. As it turns out, the story didn’t add up to Jenni either. “Ummm me and @RogerMathewsNJ are not engaged!!! Hopefully one day but don’t believe the bs reports,” JWoww tweeted after being peppered with congratulations. We, for one, are glad JWoww cleared things up. After all..have you seen her relationship with Roger on Snooki & JWoww?
Okay, look: obviously the only two people who know the true nature of a relationship are the two people in that relationship. That being said, everything JWoww and Roger do is recorded and put on television along with a dubstep soundtrack, so we’re pretty sure we’ve got the basic idea. Based on the first season of Snooki & JWoww, Jenni and Roger fight almost constantly over the smallest things. Seeing as how fights can be edited to look longer and more intense, we would be remiss if we didn’t point out that Roger constantly and loudly complains that they haven’t had sex in months…and JWoww jokingly confirms that he’s right. On television. We want every Jersey Shore castmember to be happy in his or her own way, but we don’t know if these two are ready to take the plunge. Maybe we can start with Deena getting married, and we’ll work our way up from there, okay? Okay.
