It takes a lot to upstage Lady Gaga live, which tells you a lot about the Adam Lambert AMA performance Sunday night. He actually relegated Lady G to #2 on the list of buzzed-about, flamboyant American Music Awards performances!

That's not to suggest Gaga didn't bring the crazy as always.

In a flesh-colored bodysuit wrapped with white piping, she performed a smashing (in more ways than one) medley of her hits "Bad Romance" and "Speechless."

After "Bad Romance,"she segued into "Speechless" by using her mic stand to bust open a glass box with a piano inside. Then she climbed inside and performed.

While breaking glass bottles, accompanied by violinists wearing gas masks in smoke-filled chambers beside her, natch. A far cry from that old school NYU video.

In short, it was vintage Lady Gaga, and we've learned expect nothing less. Check out her performance below and tell us what you think by voting in our survey ...

How would you assess Lady Gaga's AMA performance?

We would suspect that Jennifer Lopez is nursing a bruise on her back after falling on stage during her performance at the American Music Awards last night.

Fortunately, that famous booty of hers helped cushion the fall somewhat.

After strutting on the stage, converted into a boxing ring, in a robe and gloves to sing "Louboutins" from her new album, Lopez gyrated with male dancers.

It was all going according to plan until J. Lo climbed onto a human pyramid of half-naked performers and jumped down, slipping and falling on stage. Ow.

Check out (and laugh at) J. Lo taking a spill below ...

Compared to what she normally wears - including on stage this very night - Rihanna's red carpet fashion at the American Music Awards was downright tame.

Still, the singer's origami-like black, white and gold dress drew raves from fashion critics. Also garnering praise (from us at least)? The lovely Kristen Bell.

In contrast to Rihanna, she keeps it very simple ... and why not when you're so darn cute. The actress and Gossip Girl narrator looked classically gorgeous.

Say it ain't so (but we wouldn't doubt anything regarding this twosome): Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil are planning to remarry, according to reports.

The troubled singer proposed to her ex-hubby and he said ... well, he agreed. He told a friend that "we both know we've only ever been divorced on paper."

"This is the right thing to do."

If that's right, we don't even wanna know what wrong is. But we may find out soon enough, as she reportedly wore a ring on her engagement finger Friday.

Blake, who has been tied to numerous women, including stripper Lauren McDermott, teenager Francesca Moralee and fellow inmate/possible baby mama Gilleen Morris, since his relationship with Amy hit the skids, has vowed to stay faithful.

Blake and Wino

Amy and Blake in happier, drug-addled times.

"I'm not going to go near anyone else," said Blake on getting back together with Wino. "I discussed it with Amy. She understood we had to try and move on."

"I think deep down she always knew we'd tie the knot again."

Blake celebrated with a friend over a beer, telling the chap that "It's the engagement ring I gave Amy the first time. I think it cost £2,000 from Tiffany."

"We've been talking on the phone 5-6 times a day. On Friday she told me she was going to put the engagement ring on." She apparently wasn't kidding.

As for their recent online "engagement," Blake says: "We'd changed our status on Facebook to married a few weeks back but that was more for a laugh."

"This is the real deal."

God help us.

Andy Samberg has been on a boat, and rapped about a lazy Sunday. His latest SNL Digital Short may not be on par with those two, but it's worth watching.

If you're over 18 and have a bizarre sense of humor, that is.

In the two-and-a-half-minute video below, Andy tells us how he and country legend Reba McEntire, unlikely a pairing as it might be, have fallen in love.

Only Reba is actually played by SNL's Kenan Thompson, and Andy seems to be the last to know. Don't worry, it's much, much weirder than you think ...

It's a case of black vs. off-white... fashions. And gorgeous ladies who make it hard to choose. But you must. Right now. Who looked better? Vote below!

Meet Orenthal James Simpson, a.k.a. "O.J."

He's just your standard prison inmate, working out like a madman, preaching racial harmony among his peers, reading a lot and watching pro wrestling.

Makes the scum of the earth sound like a nice guy.

Since being tossed into Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Center 11 months ago on robbery, assault and kidnapping charges, O.J. Simpson has adjusted well.

“O.J. works out every single day. He’s lost a lot of weight and he’s in great shape,” Simpson’s longtime producer, Norman Pardo, tells The New York Post.

“He says that’s one of the benefits of not being able to go out and party all the time like he used to,” adds Pardo, who for some reason still talks to O.J.

  • O.J. Mugshot
  • O.J. Simpson Mug Shot III
  • O.J. Simpson Mug Shot (2007)
  • O.J. Mug Shot

The many faces of O.J. Simpson.

When not doing push-ups or pumping iron, O.J. reads James Patterson books and follows his alma maters, the USC Trojans and Buffalo Bills, plus the WWE.

And while fraternizing with other felons, he counsels them on such issues as race relations and anger management, and in turn he's avoided any trouble.

“I have no issues in here. Everybody’s cool,” Simpson has told Pardo.

Simpson, who's serving a 33-year term (not long enough as far as his ex Christie Prody is concerned), even finessed a tough situation with his cellmate.

According to his daughter, the lucky roomie is (or was) a white supremacist - but shucks, because O.J. is such a good guy, they eventually became pals.

Now nice. Such an upbeat attitude toward race relations and life in general is a far cry from how Simpson felt while committing that robbery of his own sports memorabilia back in 2007. Or when he stabbed two humans to death with a knife in 1994.

Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra, a London-based businessman, got married in a "fairy-tale wedding" Sunday afternoon in Khandala, India.

Shilpa Shetty, clad in a red-and-gold saree, walked around a holy fire with Kundra in a traditional Hindu ritual that signifies the sacred bond of marriage.

"She was surrounded by her closest friends and family and the wedding was conducted in traditional south Indian rituals," Shetty's spokeswoman said.

"This is it!" Shetty wrote on her official blog just a few hours before the ceremony took place in the town about 200 kilometers from the city of Mumbai.

Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty are now husband and wife!

Shetty and Kundra met in London after she shot to fame as the winner of the British reality show Celebrity Big Brother in a controversial 2007 season.

She was also controversially smooched by Richard Gere that year.

The actress went on to host Bigg Boss, the Indian version of Big Brother, and launch several business ventures, including a yoga video and health spas.

On Tuesday, Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra will host a wedding reception in Mumbai, with the who's who of Bollywood expected to be in attendance.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
