Most of the stars looked downright amazing at this year’s VMAs — including Britney Spears, who swept up all the Moonmen at this year’s show but disappointed some fans by not performing her latest hit (“Gimme More”). But there’s always a couple of fashion flops. After the jump, see for yourself and don’t forget to read our VMAs Gossip Diary.
It’s almost impossible to find fault with the statuesque Ciara, but we can’t let her mop-head wig go without comment. Was she going for a retro Tina Turner look? We want her old hair back.
Another singer with one name who looks flawless 99 percent of the time, we tried to write off Rihanna‘s Thriller-esque stage outfit as a dramatic prop. But that carpet on her ass put us over the edge.
According to our reporter on the ground, some of the hottest moments on the red carpet of the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards included T-Pain blowing passed the media to play a video game, Katy Perry getting out of a limo with Miley Cyrus on her arm, Ashlee Simpson looking nine months pregnant (and great), and a battle of cleavage being fought between Christina Aguilera, Lauren Conrad, Audrina Partridge and Tila Tequila. See the pics below and check out our VMA Gossip Diary.
In October’s issue of Blender, the Pussycat Dolls want to prove to the world that they’re not all pretty faces and lacy panties. The burlesque quintet are typical in that they subject themselves to rigorous work-outs and caloric deprivations, but they are also questing for some serious spiritual enlightenment. All five members of the scantily-clad crew share the same guru, Amma. “I think she is the divine mother,” Nicole told the mag. In addition, the girls believe they’re together for a reason, and suggest that a connection in a past life is what’s brought them together today: “I think we all knew each other in a different life,” says Melody. Confirmation? Melody and Ashley play with their hair the exact same way. OMG! Goosebumps!

Kid Rock and Tommy Lee have thrown fists at each other, Luke Campbell and his 2 Live Crew pals performed “Banned In the USA,” Madge and Brit did their infamous lip lock thing — there’s always something big happening at MTVs annual VMAs show. We decided to corral some of the great, silly, or dubious moments that stick in our mind. They may not be the most outrageous ever, but they’re all quite memorable. After the jump, take a look back at these moments and tune into MTV Sunday at 9PM EST to watch the 2008 Video Music Awards.
Robert Downey Jr. teamed up with a dude in a HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb) cyborg suit to break open a barrel of sake at the Japanese premiere of Iron Man. No, Robert’s not relapsing in a big way—the ceremony is for good luck. Why don’t we have a cool red carpet tradition like that?
Wednesday Addams sure has grown up. Christina Ricci and boyfriend Kick Gurry frolicked on the beach in Malibu while Christina showed off her tattoos and enjoyed the California sun. In case you’re wondering, Kick is an actor from Down Under who met Ricci on the set of Speed Racer. [Photos: INF]
We’d be lying if we said we weren’t a little (read: totally) excited to see the new 90210. Initially, our borderline unhealthy crush on Dylan from the original show rendered us blind to the obvious signs of desperation inherent in the marketing: You wanna live in the zip, you gotta live by the code? Um, no thanks. Really. And now, after two hours and 72 commercial breaks, our heart is a little broken and all we can say (even knowing the show is a ratings juggernaut) is Holy cliché.
Gavin Rossdale, Pink, Alicia Silverstone, Kiefer Sutherland, Ellen Degeneres, Portia de Rossi, and Britney Spears were among the H-town elite getting some color on the beach or by the pool over the holiday weekend. As we bid the summer of 2008 adieu, let us look back at the hottest beach moments below:
Between Katy Perry kissing girls (and liking it), Lindsay and Samantha pledging their love via MySpace messages, and Penelope Cruz‘s tonsil hockey session with Scarlett Johansson in this summer’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona, girl-on-girl action appears to be the latest Hollywood trend. From the obviously out (Tila) to the maybe-the-world’s-just-wishing (Jessica Biel), check out Hollywood’s 16 hottest celesbians.
