The internet, it seems, is run on the fuel of two components: cats and celebrities. If you peruse the internet on the daily basis, checking out social media feeds, chances are you’ll come across as many cute cats as you do celebrity gossip. Everything else just becomes peripheral. It’s hard to imagine what would happen to the internet without cats and celebrities — would it just become an empty void of nothingness? We assume puppies would have to step in to do the hard yards and try to fill the gap, although it would be a terribly big gap.
Halloween is almost here, and it’s definitely not just for kids anymore! These days it’s less about the mini candy bars and more about the seriously hot mini outfits. October 31st has become the unofficial the last gasp of bikini season, the final strip-off before winter sets in and everyone turns into Slanket mummies for 6 months. But for now, the goal is to be the most creative with the least amount of clothing. And no one does that better than Hollywood A-listers! These stars have brought us some truly awesome costumes over the years. Who could forget Kim Kardashian as Jasmine, Mariah Carey as a scantily clad bride(?) and Snooki as…the Queen of the Pickles? We think? Okay, we’ll be honest: we don’t know what a lot of these outfits are supposed to be. But that’s the magic of Halloween: We don’t have to! It’s the one night of the year where it’s not skanky, it’s a costume! Tons of stars and starlets have stripped down to celebrate over the years, so we’ve assembled the 75(!) most scarily sexy costumes of all time. Just think of it as a big basket of fun-sized Snickers on a doorstep and a sign that says “Help Yourself.” Dive in!

Sure Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are famous all over the world and have millions of dollars at their disposal. But they still celebrate birthdays in the same cutely embarrassing way that we always do at our local Olive Garden. Kimye put in an appearance last night at the Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation’s Angel Ball, held at the fancy Cipriani restaurant in New York City. Yeezy must have had a quick secret word with the waiter, because soon a chocolate cake was delivered to a surprised Kim and Co. Alright, her birthday was technically on Sunday. But that’s half the fun! We have on average approximately 35 restaurant birthday’s a year.
Guests reportedly sang, and model Bar Refaeli snapped a few pics on her iPhone. It’s just like a night out with our friends! Except less endless pasta bowls and bread-sticks. Celebs really are just like us! But those weren’t the only famous faces to turn up at the Angel Ball. Gerard Butler was there, as was Angela Simmons and super model Irina Shayk.Nelly and Ashanti went together, but the cutest pairing had to be Solange Knowles and her gorgeous mother Tina.

The late great Amy Winehouse famously wrote a song called “(F–k Me) Pumps”, about the sexy shoes women wear out to fancy clubs. But now designer Christian Louboutin took it one step further with a line of kicks emblazoned with the word “SEX”! The shoes feature genuine Swarovski crystals, and at $1,400 a pair, they don’t come cheap. But the high price tag hasn’t made them any less popular with style conscious (and sexy!) stars. Kate Upton stepped out in her new Loubs at the Jeffrey Fashion Cares benefit in New York City last night, while Katy Perry wore her own pair to the ECHO Awards in Berlin last week. Singer Ashanti was also seen sporting the suggestive shoe at the Falguni & Shane Peacock Fall 2012 fashion show during New York Fashion Week last month. She’s obviously ahead of the curve! Would you want a pair of these NSFW shoes for yourself? Head to the gallery below for a closer look!

Actually, the headline lies. We are really having a hard time imagining what really went down at the party celebrating the reopening of Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in New York City last night. It was Hov’s first public appearance since the birth of Blue Ivy Carter, and Beyonce understandably chose to stay home. The sheer variety of attendees would blow our mind if we weren’t already used to Jay’s wide scope of influence: Warren Buffet, Selita Ebanks, Spike Lee, Mob Wives star Renee Graziano and Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia were there along with his more musical pals like Ashanti, Wale, Questlove and Irv Gotti. Head over to VH1 Blog for a gallery of the illustrious guests, and watch what Ashanti and Gotti had to say about the new parents in an interview with MTV News below.

Halloween ain’t just for kids anymore. Celebs stepped out over the weekend in outfits that were equal parts scary and sexy. Kim Kardashian strutted her stuff as a Bavarian looking Red Riding Hood. Did she pick it up at Oktoberfest along with her dirndl? Coco and her Great Pumpkins hit the town as a (plastic surgeon’s?) nurse, and Snooki rocked it as…Queen of the Pickles?
Okay, we’ll be honest: we don’t know what a lot of these outfits are supposed to be. But that’s the magic of Halloween! Ã‚Â We don’t have to! It’s the one night of the year where it’s not slutty, it’s a costume! Tights, lots of skin, and body glitter: it ain’t just for skanks anymore.
Check out the gallery below to see the best Halloween hotness of 2010!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Musicians, celebrities and irrelevant D-Listers are gathering together once again this Sunday evening to celebrate the MTV Video Music Awards. Sure the VMAs are about music and videos and honoring future one-hit wonders (a-ha, anyone?), but really what they’re about is said stars and wannabees shocking us with their outfits…or lack there of.
The Grammys are where the music industry goes to class it up, but the VMAs are all about getting down. Like, nipple pasties down. We’ve picked out the skimpiest outfits to grace the VMAs white carpet over the years, scroll through the skin to see our number one skimpiest outfit.
Did we miss anyone? Tell us in the comments, and don’t forget to tune into the VMAs this Sunday night at 9/8c to see who leaves the house in next to nothing this year! Our money is on Best New Artist nominee Ke$ha – though maybe host Chelsea Handler will shock us with a little skin. We can’t wait!

Is there such a thing as too much arm candy? Amber Rose and Coco, best known for respectively standing next to Kanye West and Ice-T on red carpets, got rather affectionate at an afterparty for Chris Rock‘s Good Hair in NY last night. Sadly, Mr. “I’d Do Anything For A Blonde Dyke” West wasn’t there to enjoy the moment, but stars ranging from Al Sharpton to Adrian Grenier to Ashanti (and a pregnant Padma Lakshmi!) were in attendance for the screening. Think anyone knew about that $5 million lawsuit against the film?
Check out who else showed up in the gallery below.

Look who we just spotted enjoying President Barack Obama‘s (!!!) inauguration! It’s Diddy, Beyonce, and a dude in a giant fur hat. Oh wait, that’s Jay-Z, sporting the first fashion faux pas of the Inauguration. We almost gave that title to Aretha Franklin‘s bow hat, but she rocked it too hard to deserve a diss, even if that bow almost did eat her head.
Also spotted: Oprah Winfrey, Adrien Grenier, Rachel Leigh Cook, Sting, Trudie Styler, Spike Lee, Denzel Washington, Anne Hathaway, the Bush twins, Malia and Sasha Obama, and of course our new President Obama and Vice President Biden with their wives Michelle and Jill!
