Twilight dominated last night’s MTV Movie Awards, taking home Best Movie, Best Female Performance, Breakthrough Performance Male, Best Kiss and Best Fight. While Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart punk’d the audience by almost kissing on stage, Stewart punk’d herself by dropping her Best Female Performance trophy near the end of her speech. “I was just about as awkward as you thought I was gonna be, bye!” Don’t feel too bad, Kristen! At least you didn’t tell us “this world is bulls—” and quote Maya Angelou.
Check out the gallery for shots of the Twilight cast at last night’s ceremony.
You have to give Adam Lambert props for novelty, but his version of “Ring Of Fire” on last night‘s American Idol was a little too Jeff Buckley meets “Kashmir” meets Buffalo Bill asking a mirror if it would f— him. We’ll find out tonight how well it played in Peoria, but we thought of a few arrangements that might not have made Simon Cowell‘s head explode. Here’s five.
Ray Charles, “Ring Of Fire”
So soulful, we can already see Paula swaying to this.
While Scandalist is proud to announce that we predictedseventeen of last night’s Grammy winners, we’re still a little embarrassed. We couldn’t have guessed that the NARAS would pick the lesser-known Adele over Duffy for two awards, or that they’d love John Mayer‘s Rock Vocal even more than Bruce Springsteen‘s. But we’re disappointed that we underestimated the Fogey’s Curse. Robert Plant & Alison Krauss were a lock for Album Of The Year, but five awards for five nominations? We’ll never doubt you again, aging voters!
Here are some of last night’s big winners.
Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, “Please Read The Letter”
Adele, Duffy, Lady Antebellum, the Jonas Brothers and Jazmine Sullivan are all nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy this year. On Sunday we’ll find out which act will join The Pretenders, The Eagles and The Indigo Girls in that hallowed group of artists that went on to acclaimed, long-lasting careers. Oh, wait—those three didn’t win. In fact, they respectively lost to Christopher Cross, America and Milli Vanilli. And while Milli Vanilli was stripped of their trophy later, that was only because they were lip-syncing frauds. Here are five previous nominees whose careers have far outshone those of the artists that beat them. Too bad there are no take-backs.
Pop stars collect alter egos like Mariah Carey collects shoes — there’s gotta be one for every mood. Beyonce, for example, is using “Sasha Fierce” to experiment with a harder hip-hop sound without alienating her R&B fans. “Hannah Montanah” (aka Miley Cyrus) used the angry love song “7 Things” to destroy her Disneyesque image. And even foul-mouthed Eminem felt compelled to create Slim Shady before unleashing his most violent verbal assaults. On the flip side, there’s bands like Kiss and artists like Marilyn Manson. Are their alter egos the Gothic personas they’ve created? Or have they embodied these personas for so long that they’ve ceased to be alter egos at all? Now we’ve confused ourselves. Just watch the vids …
David Letterman got an early Christmas present – a tie from Jennifer Aniston. But this was not any old tie. No, this was THE TIE that Jen draped over her naked body in her sexy GQ photo shoot. Dave was very excited to receive the gift, obviously, which Jen gave him when she appeared on his show last night. Dave showed off her GQ cover, which Jen gladly joked was “fun with magazines.” One magazine she did not want to have fun with, however, was her Vogue issue where she infamously called Angelina Jolie “uncool.” When Dave busted that one out, Jen just rolled her eyes.
Jen did talk about her beau John Mayer, explaining that they met at a party and that she thought his performance on Dave’s show was “beautiful. It really kicked off the holiday spirit.” [Source: Us Weekly]

Much like it was a big week in America, it was also a big week in Jolly Old England: Blake Fielder-Civil, more commonly known as Mr. Amy Winehouse, was released from jail after a year behind bars. Seems Mr. Winehouse got himself caught up with the law when he tried to prevent a witness from testifying in another court case against him — Wino sure can pick ‘em! And while Blake’s serving a mandatory term in rehab before he’s completely paid his debt to society, we’ve got the perfect playlist for when he uses his wife’s money to buy himself a brand new iPod. From his initial rendezvous with his uber-talented wife to his newfound “Sweet Freedom,” we’ve got the soundtrack for his ex-con lifestyle.
