Taylor Swift was making the media rounds Friday promoting her single "You Belong With Me" (which is #1), her album going platinum, and all that good stuff.

Naturally, though, all attention remains on the Kanye incident.

Back to December Art

During her interview with the MJ Morning Show on Tampa Bay's 93.3, FM, she made her desire not to talk about Kanye Weset very clear. Not that it helped.

The first time the host asked her to describe what happened that fateful VMA night, Taylor explained: "I'm just honestly trying not to make it into a bigger deal than it already is ... I just would like to move on maybe a little bit."

Fair enough. Or not. "Do you think it was a scripted thing?" the host asked.

"Well... you know, I um... I didn't know what to think, but I think that we should maybe move on and talk about something else, because, um, I've talked about this in one interview, and that was going to be it," Taylor awkwardly said.

Taylor Swift is ready to move on from the VMAs.

Still not taking the freaking hint, the rude radio host proceeded to ask if Kanye-gate was good for her career or if the rapper's apology was sincere.

"I really would appreciate it if we could talk about something else," Taylor Swift said, again. "I've asked you three times, and I'm trying to be nice."

More bullying followed, with the host saying, "Taylor, let me give you a couple of tips ..." But then, Swift walked away and her publicist took over!

A minor spat ensued, and MJ revealed his last question: "Do you think Kanye West has a mental problem?" Suffice it to say, that went unanswered.

In summation, no one messes with T-Swizzle. She is awesome. Step off.

Speaking at the Values Voters Summit in Washington Friday, the former Miss California Carrie Prejean suggested that “God had a plan for me that day” when she voiced her opinion on gay marriage ... during the 2009 Miss USA contest.

Yes. God told her to voice opposition to same sex marriage, at a beauty pageant, on national television. He works in mysterious ways sometimes.

Carrie Prejean asked during the contest by judge and openly gay celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton if she supports gay marriage. She does not.

Her answer ultimately led to so much controversy that people forget she did not actually win Miss USA (she was second to Kristen Dalton of N.C.).

Reflecting on Friday, Prejean, who was later stripped of her title of Miss California USA because God told her to she flaked on her contract, said “I’m so proud of the answer that I gave. God chose me for that moment.”

“I was a woman who stood up for the truth and people don’t want to admit it,” she continued. “I had the courage and bravery that a lot of people don’t have.”

“I am not defeated, they have not defeated me. They can say whatever they want about me and my faith,” Carrie Prejean said in praise of herself. “I always wanted to leave a legacy of courage and boldness and to show that to young people.”

The 22-year-old went on to thank her “thousands of fans who believe in me, and saw me as more than a beauty pageant girl.” Yes, so much more than that.

At the Miss USA pageant, Prejean told Hilton, “We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. I think that in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman.”

“No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised."

Here's a video of Prejean's comments from yesterday ...

Welcome, readers of The Hollywood Gossip, to our Week in Review.

Below, we take a look back at some of the LOL moments, outbursts and news stories that made this week one of the best we can remember ... this month.

Some highlights from the past seven days:

  • R.I.P.: Patrick Swayze passed away at the age of 57.
  • In a move that spawned universal criticism and more than one hilarious parody, and will surely haunt him for years, Kanye West hjiacked Taylor Swift's speech with a belligerent tirade at the MTV Video Music Awards.
  • West apologized many times and Swift accepted, but you know it's bad when the President of the United States calls you a jackass off the record before giving an interview, then doesn't even get any flak for it.
  • In other VMA news, Alicia Keys and Jay-Z's performance of "Empire State of Mind" was really, really good. So moving, in fact, that Lil Mama decided to crash it. We have no idea who that is, but it was funny.
  • Also funny? Stephanie Pratt's plastic surgery. Yikes.

Jay Leno asks what all of America is thinking ... WTH, Kanye?!

September has been a wild month for bizarre, inappropriate outbursts and YouTube Hall of Fame moments, ranging from music to sports and even politics.

Which was the worst meltdown of them all? Let's review the contenders:

  • U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) wasn't a celebrity until his "You lie!" outburst during President Obama's health care speech. That was an all-timer.
  • Serena Williams, tennis legend, completely imploded with a profane tirade at a judge in the U.S. Open semifinals, leading to her disqualification.
  • Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV Music Video Awards and belligerently said Beyonce's video was way better.

None of the above are likely to live down these infamous tirades anytime soon. But which was the most inappropriate? Vote in THG's survey below ...

Whose outburst was the most inappropriate?

Updating a story from earlier today, sources confirm that Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are not just thinking about rings and maybe getting married.

They are engaged and will tie the knot in the next two weeks!

Tamera Mowry, Adam Housley

"Khloe and Lamar want to get married before he has to go away for training, and the [basketball] season starts up [this fall]," a source tells Us Weekly.

"They are hoping to pull together a wedding within the next two weeks so they can get married and have time for a honeymoon," continues the source.

"They haven't decided where they will say 'I Do,' but they are scouting out numerous locations, including Khloe's family home in Calabasas, [Calif.]."

Earlier this month, Odom gushed that he was "very happy" with Khloe Kardashian, who stars with her pregnant sister on Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami.

"Khloe is smart and beautiful and that is very hard to find," he said.

Her other sister approves as well: "He's a great guy!" Kim Kardashian said of the couple, who have been all over each other, and L.A., in recent weeks.

THG first reported Khlamar were dating September 4, just two weeks ago. But when it's time to create headlines true love, sometimes you just know.

Odom recently signed a four-year, $33 million deal with the Lakers, who he helped win the NBA title ... but can Khloe really lock Lamar up for life?!

Will Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom actually get married?

After a record-breaking run abroad, Pink has brought her "Funhouse" tour to the U.S. It's a show that's one part Britney Spears, one part Lady Gaga and one part uniquely Pink, blending passion, glitz, glamor, music and crazy stunts.

She's even playing hurt!

Minka Kelly Emmys Dress

At Seattle’s Key Arena this week, Pink announced that she separated her shoulder, but was so excited about the performance she didn’t even consider canceling, telling the audience, “The louder you cheer the less pain I feel!”

Talk about a performer.

Despite wearing the same dress as Shakira Sunday at the MTV VMAs, Pink more than made up for it with this unusual, outlandish outfit. It's very ... Pink.

Hot or not? Vote below ...

Say what you will about Rush Limbaugh (and we have a feeling you will have no shortage of things to say), the conservative radio host does not mince words.

Rush devoted much of one of his shows this week to a tragic incident where a white teenager was beaten up on a school bus by an African-American teenager.

The attack was horrible and is being investigated by local police, but Rush Limbaugh seized upon it to pontificate about what he feels it is indicative of:

President Barack Obama spreading racism against white people.

According to the St. Louis-Dispatch, police say the beating was not racially motivated, and only transpired once the teenager chose the wrong seat to sit in.

After a caller phoned in and told Rush Limbaugh he did not think the beating was because of race, the blowhard responded with the following statement:

Rush Limbaugh Pic

Rush Limbaugh sure knows how to blow smoke.

"I think not only it was racism, it was justifiable racism. I mean, that's the lesson we're being taught here. Kid shouldn't have been on the bus anyway. We need segregated buses - it was invading space and stuff. This is Obama's America."

To be fair, Rush was probably only hyperbolizing and rambling to make his point and not really calling for segregation. Maybe. But it got worse, as Limbaugh continued, inexplicably comparing homosexuality with racism:

"If homosexuality being inborn is what makes it acceptable, why does racism being inborn not make racism acceptable? Sorry. I mean, this is the way my mind works. Apparently now we don't choose racism, we just are racists."

"We are born that way. We don't choose it. So shouldn't it be acceptable, excuse - this is according to the way the left thinks about things."

This is a man who also thinks John Edwards' affair with Rielle Hunter was his wife Elizabeth's fault, so you have to consider the source.

Well that's that. More importantly, is Rush on Team Taylor or Team Kanye?

It looks as though the 18-year-old loser arrested this week for breaking into Lindsay Lohan's home is somewhat similar to the train wreck starlet he ransacked.

He too has a cocaine problem and a mug shot!

Nicholas Prugo was busted for possession of the drug in L.A. in February.

This is the troubled youngster's Carlisle Cullen-esque mug shot resulting from that arrest (and one of Lindsay's mug shots alongside him, just for fun) ...

  • Nicholas Prugo Mug Shot
  • Lindsay Lohan Mug Shot: Reloaded!

These two should really date when Nick gets out of jail.

Nicholas Prugo pleaded guilty and entered an 18-month drug program, but may have violated the terms of that program, law enforcement sources say.

Interestingly, however, that violation looks like it was for something unrelated to the burglary, as he was already due back in court for it in November.

Prugo was also arrested last month in Beverly Hills for unknown reasons.

Dude was arrested yesterday on suspicion of the Lindsay Lohan looting. He is also a suspect in the break-in at the home of Audrina Patridge this year.

The only person yet to weigh in on Kanye West's Taylor Swift ambush at the MTV VMAs has finally said his piece, thanks to a BBC Radio 1 DJ who got ahold of him.

"It's an awards show," Jay-Z said, dismissing the controversy surrounding his collaborator and good friend Kanye. "He's just a super passionate person."

That's a nice way of saying "jackass."

Jay-Z, the husband of Beyonce, who Kanye was giving props to during his rant on stage, did acknowledge that, "Of course it was rude, it was her moment."

But, "that's the way he felt. It was rude, but the way they're treating him… He's on the cover of every paper. He didn't kill anybody. No one got harmed."

No. No one got harmed. Including Kanye himself. If he can blindside a cute, very talented 19-year-old, why can't the rest of the world take him to task?

Jay-Z has Kanye West's back ... to a point.

Jay-Z, who was at the center of some party-crashing drama of his own (thank you Lil Mama) continued to walk the line when defending his friend, saying:

"It just wasn't appropriate. It wasn't fair to Taylor at all."

But qualifying that with, "at the end of the day, we're gonna celebrate him for his passion more than vilify him. As he matures, he has to balance that."

Still, Jay-Z said he doesn't back West's promise to take a break: "I don't think he should lay low. I think he should move on and have a brilliant career."

Whose side are you on?
