Robin Thicke and Paula Patton's marriage began to unravel when - you guessed it - the entire world saw Miley Cyrus Twerking all over him at the VMAs.

Patton, who also famously praised his "Blurred Lines" video with a nude Emily Ratajkowski, put on a good front, insisting the Twerk-fest didn't bother her.

But it did. Sources say Patton felt "utterly disrespected" when Thicke virtually simulated sex with Miley Cyrus, and also by how he handled the fallout.

Miley Cyrus VMA Twerk

Paula got into a blow-out fight with Robin, telling him he insulted her before a national TV audience with that stunt, even though he didn't see it coming.

That's right, both Paula and Robin say Miley Cyrus Twerking on him was unplanned, an improvisation on her part. However, he ran with it, angering Patton.

It only went downhill after the buzzed-about show when Paula saw pics of Robin grabbing Lana Scolaro's butt, which she also downplayed at the time.

They argued constantly; Paula was furious that Robin kept partying with various women, very cozily at times and seemingly unconcerned with her feelings.

It reached the point of no return last week.

A$AP Rocky caused controversy with his apparently homophobic expressions and posturing at the MTV VMAs, but says nothing could be further from the truth.

Rocky looked uncomfortable as he and Jason Collins introduced Macklemore at the event. Collins spoke about being gay and expressing hope for acceptance.

A$AP then awkwardly promoted his new album once the NBA player, who recently made history by coming out as gay, had finished speaking.

In a new interview, however, Rocky says he regrets that night.

I’m mad that my facial expressions was like that because I’m not homophobic at all, and that whole thing just came off real homophobic,” the rapper said.

“I didn’t really notice it until I got home and saw it."

For the first time since shocking the world via foam finger, nude-colored underwear and a whole lot of Twerking, Miley Cyrus has spoken out on her MTV Video Music Awards performance.

Having already Tweeted a self-congratulatory note about the response on social media, Cyrus confirmed to MTV that she wasn't aiming to impress last Sunday ... but merely to be remembered.

Miley and Robin

"I don't pay attention to the negative because I've seen this play out so many times," said the singer, explaining that she and Robin Thicke continually remarked that they were set to make "history."

She added, "How many times have we seen this play out in pop music?"

Taylor Swift's infamous "shut the f--k up" comment at the MTV Video Music Awards was not actually about Harry Styles, her friend Ed Sheeran says.

Taylor Swift VMA Cursing

Sheeran said in an interview that Swift's "STFU" remark, caught on camera as the One Direction singer was speaking, looked bad, but was not what you think.

It was not aimed at her ex, but at her best friend Selena Gomez, who said seconds earlier that she thought Miley Cyrus was going to win Best Pop Video.

In response to that comment, Sheeran says, Taylor Swift told her to "Shut the f--k up" as a means of saying Gomez will win the award (which she did).

Sheeran added that Swift came up to him after realizing this blew up online and explained what happened with Selena, noting that "I messed up."

So ... Taylor is not a vindictive ex, but rather a good friend?

Not as good for celebrity gossip, but better for society!

Miley Cyrus' VMA performance Sunday night was troubling and/or offensive - Dr. Laura slammed her as a tasteless, disgusting whore - by many people.

Her manager is not one of those people.

Larry Rudolph said of Miley Cyrus Twerking and writhing all over the stage, "It could not have gone better. The fans got it. The rest eventually will."

Wait ... Miley still has fans after that?

Rudolph, who is also Britney Spears' manager, said that Cyrus' family and friends, including mom Tish "were all cheering from the side of the stage."

He refutes reports that her team is "concerned" (see above) and echoed Miley's refrain that it got the fans buzzing - A LOT - exactly as she'd hoped.

Miley Cyrus has invoked many reactions via her Video Music Awards performance.

The mother of Robin Thicke is confused.

Rihanna and One Direction are unimpressed.

But Hank and Marie Schrader of AMC's Breaking Bad? They are simply speechless. She's doing WHAT with a foam finger? The giant teddy bears are on stage... WHY?

There are many questions to ask as a result of this routine, but one thing is certain: The Internet user who created this mash-up deserves a cold pint of Schraderbrau.

From Brooke Shields to Kelly Clarkson, pretty much everyone has chimed in at this point about Robin Thicke's racy duet with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Everyone, that is, except someone centrally involved in the controversy: Paula Patton, Thicke's wife.

Did she have an issue with Miley bumping and grinding all over her man?

Kissing his neck? Twerking in his crotch?

Paula Patton and Robin Thicke

Nope, not at all, according to insiders.

There were reportedly "tons of rehearsals" leading into the show itself, giving Patton plenty of time to see what would go down Sunday night.

Katy Perry and Barack Obama are bonding on Twitter. How sweet.

The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards proved to be a great night for Perry, who closed out the show with a knockout performance of her new hit "Roar."

That was before getting a Twitter shout-out from the President!

It began when Perry, an Obama supporter, re-tweeted his message to get affordable healthcare starting October 1, and he was very appreciative.

"Thanks for spreading the word. #ROAR," Obama responded.

Katy said, "Happy to do my part, PREZ!" Later, she added:

Lady Gaga wore so little onstage at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, it should come as no surprise that she was barely dressed behind the scenes as well.

Granted, these Terry Richardson photos aren't as eye-popping as the Lady Gaga VMA outfit we saw, but that's because she wore the latter in public.

Still. There is Lady Gaga. In a thong.

Lady Gaga and Mom

Okay, the photo above is family friendly. Literally in her case. That's her mom with her before the show! But some of Terry's other pics are more risque.

Follow the jump for a couple of pictures of Lady Gaga nude (or close to it) that show just how that crazy performance came to be Sunday night:
