MTV VMAs 2014: Beyonce Is The One True Queen

Slow clap for Beyonce. The unstoppable diva literally ran down the red carpet when the show was already starting but still managed to steal everyone’s shine. (She did stop briefly to chat with a couple of truly blessed fans). Queen Bey is being honored with the Vanguard Award tonight, so she dressed appropriately in a stunning black gown.

It kind of goes without saying that the 32-year-old looked amazing. Like Iggy Azalea, she opted for a glamorous look over a skimpy rag or plunging neckline. Bey’s beyond those games and knows she can still scalp bitches by simply flashing a smile. Mrs. Carter is rumored to be performing a medley of her entire visual album. Stay tuned. More »

MTV VMAs 2014: Iggy Azalea Is A Metallic Goddess

While most divas opted for gimmicks to grab attention (and headlines), Iggy Azalea kept it classy in a stunning floor-length metallic gown. There isn’t a single flaw to be found in this look. Trust me, I’ve been staring at the pics long enough. Her dress shows just enough skin to be racy and hugs her curves in all the right spots but still oozes glamour.

The Australian rapper nabbed a Video Of The Year nomination for the Charli XCX-assisted chart-topper “Fancy” and will perform her new single “Black Widow” with Rita Ora. Iggy is arguably the break-out star of 2014. She currently has a history-making three songs in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. A feat only Ariana Grande, Ashanti and Adele have achieved. More »

MTV VMAs 2014: Katy Perry And Riff Raff Pay Tribute To Justin And Britney

Well played, Katy Perry. The pop queen felt a little slighted that “Roar” didn’t snag any major nominations (despite being watched billions of times) but she still made sure all eyes were on her at the 2014 MTV VMAs red carpet tonight (August 24). Which was no easy feat given the sea of attention-hungry divas vying to be the most outrageous.

The 29-year-old arrived on the arm of her side-piece Riff Raff in matching denim outfits — an obvious tribute to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake‘s iconic appearance at the 2001 American Music Awards. The cute couple kissed on the red carpet and recently worked on a remix of Katy’s new single “This Is How We Do”. So it’s obviously true love. More »

MTV VMAs 2014: Demi Lovato Brought Out The Big Guns

Demi Lovato was rudely overlooked in all the major categories but she still managed to steal the show on the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet in Los Angeles tonight (August 24). The 22-year-old sexed up her image by rocking a stunning red grown with a plunging neckline. In fact, it plunged so low that we could almost see her navel.

There’s no denying that the Disney diva has the curves to pull off such a bold look and she seemed extremely comfortable and confident. So good for her. Demi is currently celebrating the fourth hit single from her self-titled LP and is about the hit the road — again — for another blockbuster tour. Oh, and in her spare time, she’s helping promote mental health awareness.  More »

MTV VMAs 2014: Taylor Swift Looks Like A Praying Mantis

Taylor Swift is really embracing her switch to pop music. “Shake It Off” is an upbeat toe-tapper, she (controversially) put her own spin on twerking in the dorky video and today (August 24) walked the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards in a tiny one-piece leotard (?) that revealed more than many of us wanted to see. Take that, Miley Cyrus!

This look raises so many questions. The first of which is obviously — what was she thinking? Taylor’s slim frame makes her the perfect clothes horse for elegant gowns but she resembles a baby blue bean pole in this outfit. The 24-year-old also looks uncomfortable and a little embarrassed. On the other hand, at least she’s having fun and trying to mix it up instead of dressing like a 47-year-old socialite. So yay? More »

MTV VMAs 2014: Nicki Minaj Stuns In A Leopard-Print Dress

Nicki Minaj really did it on ‘em at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet in Los Angeles tonight (August 24). The 31-year-old stunned in a sexy and sophisticated leopard-print dress that reminded us how drop dead gorgeous she is when she’s not rocking a tiny thong and seemingly reenacting scenes from The Human Centipede in her videos.

The femcee will, no doubt, change into something with a little less material for the first live performance of her YouTube-conquering hit “Anaconda”. One of Nicki’s dancers is rumored to have suffered a snake bite during rehearsals, so expect a wild, crazy and very memorable performance. She will also perform “Bang Bang” with Ariana Grande and Jessie J. More »

MTV VMAs 2014: Ariana Grande Is A Leather-Clad Lolita

Remember that scene in Grease where Sandy transforms into a cigarette-smoking, stiletto-toting bad girl? Well, Ariana Grande pulled off a similar remarkable image overhaul on the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet with her sexy leather dress. She even rocked thigh-high stripper boots but somehow managed to keep that annoying pre-teen ponytail. Creepy.

The pint-sized diva has a very big night ahead of her. She will open the show on her own and then perform “Bang Bang” with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj. It’s the perfect platform to launch Ariana’s sophomore LP My Everything, which hits iTunes tonight (August 24) and will, no doubt, race straight to number one. After all, the 21-year-old currently has three songs in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. More »

MTV VMAs 2014: Charli XCX Is A Sexy Tigress On The Red Carpet

Charli XCX rocked an animal print jumpsuit on the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet in Los Angeles tonight. The Brit, who nabbed a Video Of The Year nomination for her feature on Iggy Azalea‘s Clueless-themed “Fancy” visual, certainly stood out from the crowd in her bold ensemble and looked like a total babe.

2014 is going to be a huge year for the 22-year-old. She followed up the chart-topping success of “Fancy” with a top 10 hit of her own (The Fault In Our Stars‘ soundtrack cut “Boom Clap”) and is putting the finishing touches on her sophomore LP Sucker and is gearing up to drop a new single called “Break The Rules”. Look out, world! More »

MTV VMAs 2014: Kesha’s Rainbow-Colored Hair Steals The Show

Kesha was the first big name to appear on the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet and she made quite an entrance with her Instagram-enchanting, rainbow-colored locks. The comeback queen already indicated on Twitter that she was opting for old Hollywood glamour and her long, beaded gown did not disappoint.

The 27-year-old only snagged one nomination for best collaboration ( for Pitbull‘s “Timber”), which is kind of rude because the video is great — square-dancing has never been this sexy — and the song reached number one and ruled the airwaves for months. Kesha can take some consolation by knowing she looks incredible. More »
