After MTV plucked Kristin Cavallari out of obscurity and plunked her down in the middle of its scripted reality smash, The Hills, you knew an appearance at the network's VMAs was a foregone conclusion. As was her looking great.

Wearing essentially the same dress as Katy Perry, though? A little risky!

As you can see, Kristin Cavallari and Katy Perry were both gorgeous in their matching metallic dresses at the fake awards gala in New York City Sunday.

For Perry, known for a wild sense of style almost up there with Lady Gaga, this was rather conservative - and surprising to be in the same one as KC.

Does The Hills star knock out the "Hot N Cold" singer? Vote below:

Who looked better?

The 2009 MTV Video Music Awards were something else.

But the night was, in part, a tribute to the late Michael Jackson. Madonna opened the show with a heartfelt speech about her relationship with him.

A highly-anticipated tribute performance followed with well-known dancers doing the King of Pop's moves to "Thriller," "Bad" and "Smooth Criminal."

Then it was Janet Jackson's turn for a moving tribute. Giant screens inside the event kicked into the beginning of Janet and Michael's duet, "Scream."

Janet was removed from the video and sang and danced for real next to her brother, whose documentary, This Is It, was also previewed at the event.

It was impressive, entertaining and so much more:

Not even stellar performances by Beyonce, Jay-Z, Pink and others, and the unbelievable Kanye West-Taylor Swift incident, it was still the King of Pop's night at the VMAs.

The arbitrary MTV awards show previewed This is It, the documentary filmed during May and June rehearsals for Michael Jackson's never-to-be-completed London tour.

LeAnn Rimes may be the new woman in her estranged husband Eddie Cibrian's life, but Brandi Glanville isn't interested in speaking to his mistress.

Not that we thought she would be, but when cornered by a celebrity news cameraman this weekend, she was forced to answer questions about it.

The mother of two told said emphatically, "I do not speak with LeAnn."

Outside the L.A.-area home she once shared with Cibrian, Brandi Glanville, a former model, spent the afternoon with sons Mason, 6, and Jake, 2.

Asked how the children are dealing with the break-up of her and Cibrian, Glanville replied, "They're great. They're super happy. We're just having a picnic ... it's all good. Got to move on, right? I just play with my kids."

Despite Glanville's accusations that Eddie Cibrian is "too busy juggling women to be a dad," the Northern Lights star showed up Rimes-less Saturday to Mason's first soccer game of the season. The estranged twosome did not interact.

Don't expect his girlfriend to show up at Mason's future games, however. Glanville said the singer has never met their kids, as far as she knows.

A source says Cibrian and Rimes are "not as serious as everyone thinks they are." Despite rumors that the pair is shacking up, he's living solo.

"He still hasn't moved everything out of his house," said the source. Nor has he introduced Rimes to his mother, who might be an issue later.

The source said: "His mom and Brandi are like best friends. They are still really close. They just don't talk about him." Wow. That's gotta hurt, E.

Glanville declined to comment on pending legal proceedings regarding a custody agreement or prenup, or how her new BFF Dean Sheremet is doing.

It was just another week in the life of Lady Gaga:

  • A week of stellar live performances and bombastic fashion choices
  • A week of cementing her place among 2009's best-selling artists
  • A week of pesky hermaphrodite rumors that refuse to go away ... even though she has blatantly and hilariously denied them at this point

In just the past week, Lady Gaga took Berlin by storm n an outfit fit for a supervillain, pairing a veil with a leather frock, matching fishnets, and a lot of crazy.

The dance diva was just getting started, though, making an appearance that same day in a garish, crimped getup, then parading around in no pants in Paris.

Lady G was also seen leaving HMV in London, England, where she performed live as well, and in the pages of V Magazine, in which she got all kinds of naked.

In short, a pretty standard week. Click to enlarge these Lady Gaga pictures ...

"I always kind of aspired to be like Britney Spears in the tabloids when I was in middle school." - Lindsay Lohan in an interview with Access Hollywood

Rarely can one quote say so much about a person, but at least Lindsay Lohan has a realistic view of living life in the celebrity gossip cross hairs.

And seeking it out, actively. Michael and Dina did a stellar job. Then again, what do you expect from a loser who's become friends with Jon Gosselin.

“It’s kind of something you sign up for," Lindsay Lohan said of the constant tabloid attention she generates. “I admit, at times it does affect me."

"When I’m having a bad day or dealing with something personal that is no one business but they’re going to spin it however they want anyway."

Asked if she has regrets, Lindsay Lohan basically no, and that all of her very public meltdowns, dalliances and missteps are just "part of the process." Totally.

“I know I’m a target and I know I’ve given people a lot of reason to kind of run with things. I no longer intend on doing that, but I’m not perfect.”

“There are definitely things that I would like to take back and I always say that, but there aren’t that many things that I truly regret doing."

"I wouldn’t have learned from them, and wouldn’t be where I am today,” she noted, seemingly without irony, as where she is today is going downhill fast.

Chances are, what few regrets she has include making her voicemail password 1234, having her Twitter page "hacked" and her house broken into every other week.

Sweet mother of God, what a moron this train wreck is.

But hey, as long as she learns from it, it will make her stronger ... or at least more likely to put on some pants and change the default password.

Lindsay probably believes hackers look like this ...

Desperate to milk attention after the San Diego County D.A. decided not to press charges against Shawne Merriman, Tila Tequila zeroed in on a new target:

Chris Brown.

The back story, if you're unaware: Tila alleges that Merriman, who plays for the San Diego Chargers of the NFL, assaulted her at his house a week ago.

He said he was only trying to keep her from leaving his house and driving home drunk. She may have been jealous about a foursome he wanted to have.

Merriman was arrested, but D.A. said yesterday he would not be charged.

Angry that she can't milk this for more attention justice will not be served, Tila egged on admitted woman-beater Chris Brown over and over on Twitter.

Whether she's posing for risque pics, pretending to be bisexual or calling out celebs who have nothing to do with her, Tila Tequila will do anything for publicity.

Note that Chris, who recently pleaded guilty to assaulting Rihanna, is not involved in this whatsoever, Tequila just started a Twitter feud for no reason.

But it got so bad that Brown felt the need to respond:

"NOT TRYNA BE RUDE but i keep hearing tila bringing my name up. ur 15 seconds of fame has ended. dont try to gain fans by dissing me. godbless."

At least he took the high road, mostly, though he did get in a small dig.

Not that we blame Chris for firing that one back, since he's already been punished by the court and public... and has nothing to do with Tila Tequila.

We don't normally post about sports or sports figures at THG.

But there are exceptions, like when Tom Brady goes shirtless, Shawne Merriman possibly beats up Tila Tequila or Boise State and Oregon get into an epic melee.

Or last night's outburst by Serena Williams in the U.S. Open tennis semifinals, which will rank among some of the classic YouTube moments in sports history.

After being called for a foot fault - which is non-reviewable - in her match with Kim Clijsters, Serena absolutely lost her $h!t at the judge that made the call.

Her quote: "I'm gonna shove this ball down your f*%king throat." Really. And Williams' rant kept going long after that, reportedly with much more vulgarity.

Serena Williams' outburst was equally notable for its impact on the match.

Amazingly, Serena was already penalized for smashing a racket earlier, which resulted in a warning. Her second outburst (at the judge) thus cost her a point.

Even more amazingly, she happened to be down match point at the time, so that point she was penalized ended the match, giving Clijsters a 6-4, 7-5 win!

And you think you've seen it all. Check out the video below of Serena's U.S. open outburst at the judge who called the most infamous foot fault in history:

Not sure if this is true, MTV is pulling a fast one or somewhere in between, but The Hills star Audrina Patridge has reportedly pulled out of her presenting duties at this evening's MTV Video Music Awards in New York City.

The reason? She was to be presenting with Kristin Cavallari.

And she wasn't about to take part with her new fake rival.

"Audrina hates Kristin, and MTV sprung this on her at the last minute so she decided to cancel," a source dished to celeb gossip mag In Touch Weekly.

"She doesn't even want to be in the same room with Kristin."

  • A K-Cavs Pic

The primary reason for the bad blood is drama - fake or real - caused by Kristin's reported dalliances with Audzo's dirtbag ex-boyfriend, Justin-Bobby.

According to reports, the stylist and hair and makeup team working with Audrina Patridge were even warned not to book a job with another Hills star.

Kristin is said to be "more than pleased" by Audrina's last-minute cancellation. Either there's a major cat fight brewing, or this is great scripted BS PR.

Says a friend of Cavallari's, who probably produces The Hills: "Kristin is happy. They never got along and Kristin is the star of The Hills, not Audrina."

Fightin' words! Whose side are you on?

It's been rumored and pretty much excepted as fact that Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz are expecting a child together. But was this just wishful thinking among fan of celebrity babies longing for the most beautiful one in history?

Yes, says the actress, who denies Javier got Penelope Cruz pregnant.

The 35-year-old has been dating Bardem for months and has been rumored to be carrying the most genetically perfect celebrity spawn for weeks.

But at Thursday's Toronto Film Festival premiere of her latest film, Broken Embraces, she finally set the record straight ... or at least lied about it.

Is Penelope Cruz not pregnant after all?

"I start getting some presents from friends saying, 'Congratulations, you're pregnant.' And I tell them, 'no, I'm not, so return the presents,'" she said.

Of celebrity gossip attention paid to her, she said, "It's amazing."

She should try being Robert Pattinson. Guy gets engaged like every week.

Penelope is either telling the truth or really old-fashioned and doesn't give a crap about the kid: She was seen smoking cigarettes with pal Salma Hayek Wednesday at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont. Either way, we're a little disappointed.

At least Tom Brady finally admitted he got Gisele Bundchen pregnant. That super-attractive future quarterback or model has officially been conceived.
