Lady Gaga is the latest star to defend Miley Cyrus after her appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards. The "Applause" singer also took to the stage at the annual event and insisted those criticizing the "We Can't Stop" singer's controversial performance should "lighten up" and understand what pop music is all about.
"I don't like to pass judgement on Miley Cyrus. Generally, people need to lighten up about pop music, it's about entertainment. It is here to make you smile and make you happy. Especially in America there is an excessive dragging of female artists and I don't want to contribute to that. I do things that are polarizing sometimes but that's what it's all about," she said.
Rihanna and Chris Brown had a public kiss at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) in Los Angeles last night. The former couple - who split up in February 2009 after he assaulted her in a car - hugged when he won the Best Male Video prize at the event at the Staples Center, and she appeared to peck him on the cheek to congratulate him.
Rihanna herself picked up the biggest award of the night, Video of the Year, for "We Found Love."
Kevin Hart urged the public to forgive Kristen Stewart for cheating on Robert Pattinson at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.
The comedian presented the ceremony in Los Angeles, California and decided to "address the elephant in the room" by discussing her affair with Rupert Sanders. "Everybody's mad at Kristen Stewart for making a mistake. She allegedly messed around with the director of Snow White and the Huntsman. If she did, so what? It's over. Move on. Look on the briight side, they're now a part of the seven dwarfs. You've got sleepy, grumpy, adultery, cheating," the 32-year-old told the audience at the Staples Center.
The actress was caught cheating on her Twilight co-star and real-life boyfriend of three years in mid-July. "The point that I'm making is this, if you made a mistake... so what!" Hart continued.
Beyonce Knowles is pregnant. The singer arrived at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) last night in a loose fitting orange dress, and clutched her visible baby bump as she posed on the red carpet. She told the press: "I have a surprise!" Beyonce's publicist later confirmed the news, telling People.com: "I'm happy to say it's true." The child will be the first for the 29-year-old and her husband, rapper Jay-Z, who married in 2008. During the VMAs Beyonce first cheered on Jay from the side of the stage as he performed new single 'Otis' with Kanye West, then wowed the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles herself, singing 'Love on Top'. She told the crowd: "I want you to feel the love that's growing inside of me." As she sung, Beyonce proudly rubbed her bump, and the cameras panned over to Jay-Z, who had a huge grin on his face. The performance was met with a standing ovation. Beyonce has recently hinted she was thinking of settling down, saying earlier this month how she was hoping to "dedicate herself" to having children. She said: "When you're young - 18 or 19 - you have the energy and drive. That's the time to work as hard as you can. "Now I'm a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children."
She talks to cameras openly about her experiences on Broadway, explains that she’s still “a normal kid,” and remains poised and engaging throughout.
Documentary filmmakers Louis Alvarez and Andrew Kolker recall the young Lea Michele in brief asides, remarking that she had a “thousand-watt personality.”
“I can do anything and that’s how I kind of stay sane in this really tough, dog-eat-dog business,” she explains. It took 10 years, but the Emmy-nominated actress has managed to convince many that her words are true: she really can do anything.

Tom Cruise has been taking dance lessons from his wife’s choreographer.
The 47-year-old actor teamed up with Jennifer Lopez to perform a comic routine at last night’s MTV Movie Awards in the guise of his Tropic Thunder character Les Grossman and revealed his spouse Katie Holmes had helped him with his extensive preparations for the sketch.
“I worked with Katie’s choreographer, Tyce Diorio. Katie loved it. She was there while we were working on it. You know, I can dance a bit and we rehearsed, and my wife’s a dancer and so I like dancing,” he said, speaking after the performance.
The routine saw Tom being spanked by the Back Up Plan star, who stopped him returning the gesture, and ended with the Knight and Day actor trying and failing to do the splits. Tom admitted he had a great time portraying the foul-mouthed, fat, balding producer in a series of sketches at the awards, which took place at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles.
“It was a lot of fun - it was great. It was a blast!” he added.
