VIDEO: Taylor Lautner Kicks Off Kanye West’s Head

If you could turn back the clocks to September 13, what would you do over?

If you were Kanye West, you’d probably - probably - not bring your Hennessy to the Video Music Awards. If you were Taylor Swift, you’d probably get a firm grip on that microphone.

And if you were —well, you’d probably step up and defend your (future) lady’s honor. How exactly would you accomplish that? Just watch the demonstration above.

Britney Spears and Russell Brand in New VMA Plug

At this time last year, Britney Spears was still trying to learn Russell Brand’s name. This time around, she can’t stop repeating it.

In this commercial for next month’s VMAs, the pop princess not-so-secretly wonders if she’ll score a personal invite from the two-time host. “Should I have played it up more when he was flirting with me last year? I have to admit there is something sexy about his dangerous ways,” she asks.

Meanwhile, the comedian worries he may have offended her during their last series of spots. “Some of those things I said could have been construed as offensive. I hope she don’t think ill of me.”

The 2009 Video Music Awards air live on September 13.

Russell Brand to Host MTV’s Video Music Awards

Kristen Bell and Russell BrandIf you couldn’t stomach the thought of seeing Jason Segel’s privates, you probably missed one of ‘s great cast additions. Fortunately for you, that scene stealer will soon be storming American television.

Although he is barely known on this side of the water, British comedian (Marshall‘s Aldous Snow) has been chosen by the MTV to host the Video Music Awards this September. Brand, who has a bit of a reputation of being a bad boy, was apparently chosen after execs saw him performing his stand-up routine in LA.

Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first time Brand has been associated with the network. Russell acknowledges that he was fired from his job as a VJ in London when he came to work dressed as Osama Bin Laden…on Sept. 12, 2001.

So what can viewers expect from the wild-haired comic? If his recent appearance on Late Night with Conan O’Brien show was any indication, it is going to be the funniest broadcast yet. (You can see that clip after the jump.)

Britney Spears to Return to the VMAs?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Award Shows, Music, Prime Time, Reality, MTV, Gossip,

Britney Spears

Unless you were under self-imposed media exile last year, you saw the avalanche of coverage following the appearance at the VMAs. Spears poorly performed “Gimme More” to seven million home viewers last year, though many more would witness her antics thanks to the streaming videos which cropped up everywhere. Will MTV really give her the chance to do it again?

President Van Toffler (MTV Networks Music Group) gave a somewhat tongue-in-cheek comment to the Associated Press that “everyone deserves a second or third chance, right?” But don’t take his comment too lightly. In a world where any press is good press, the mere promise of Spears at this year’s could create a whirlwind of media coverage. MTV likes press.

The Video Music Awards will air live on September 7, with performances being given from sound stages and rooftops. Right now, it isn’t certain whether Brit will actually perform - but it is certain will want her there for the sake of ratings alone.

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Gossip, Internet, Rumors,

Britney Spears While details are still developing, People magazine (and loads of other news sites and blogs) are reporting that is temporarily losing custody of her two children, Sean Preston and Jayden James. will have custody of the children, beginning Wednesday, “until further notice of the court,” according to the judge at today’s hearing. The specifics have not been made public, but the odds of Brit having custody have become increasingly stacked against her after recent events, including charges against her for a hit-and-run accident, driving without a valid license, and of course… interviews from her former bodyguard that claim the poptart endangered her kids and used drugs. You also may recall that Britney is supposed to have random drug testing twice a week. No word yet on whether this recent custody decision is the result of any testing. There will be another hearing on Wednesday.
