Stop us if you've heard this before: MTV hosted an awards ceremony last night and Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber won big.

Both young superstars took home a trio of trophies - including the top prizes on the evening - at the MTV Europe Music Awards, which aired from Frankfurt, Germany and was emceed by Heidi Klum.

Bieber, unfortunately, was not present to accept his honors, though the newly single singer did record a video message in which he thanked fans around the world.

Jersey Shore is going out on a high note, according to MTV, which is speaking out about its rationale behind canceling the hit show after six seasons.

Executive VP of Programming Chris Linn says the cost of the cast was not factor, but "we always said we’d do the show as long as it made sense."

Long story short, that's no longer really the case.

"We noticed what was going on in their lives, with [Snooki having her baby], the relationships, etc. it felt like the right time to bring it to a close."

"The show still dominates, it’s the No. 1 show in our core demo, and it’s still incredibly successful. It’s really just about their lives evolving and changing in a way that moves everyone away from the original conceit of the show."

"We made what we think is the right, tough choice to end the show on top."

With Jersey Shore canceled after the coming season (debuting October 4), what kinds of things can we expect from the gang's farewell tour?

The days of GTL, fist pumping and beating up the beat are nearing their end on MTV as Jersey Shore's upcoming sixth season will officially be the last.

Since its December 2009 debut, the show has been a huge hit and its cast members have become bona fide celebrities, but ratings have dipped of late.

Also, with Snooki giving birth and The Situation sober following a trip to rehab, the gang may be - dare we say it with a straight face - growing up.

Jersey Shore Season 5 Cast

The network's plan is to launch a marketing storm touting Jersey Shore's final season as the guidos' final blowout before riding off into the sunset.

MTV will air a Jersey Shore marathon, as well as a one-hour retrospective special titled "Gym, Tan, Look Back" on September 6 before the VMAs.

The cast will also be part of the VMA's preshow to talk about the final season, which should certainly be an interesting one due to Snooki's pregnancy.

Rest assured, cameras were there to capture the birth of Lorenzo Dominic LaValle last week. Break out the Ron-Ron juice for that episode, people.

Jersey Shore Season 6 premieres Thursday, October 4.

Will you watch Jersey Shore's last season?

When MTV's Diem Brown beat ovarian cancer at 23, she paid the price of having one ovary, several lymph nodes and part of her fallopian tube removed.

She didn't let that stop her from venturing to Australia to participate in the Real World / Road Rules Challenge one month later ... but now it's returned.

The 30-year-old Brown, who founded MedGift, a gift registry for those suffering any illness, was recently diagnosed with ovarian cancer yet again.

"Didn't think ovarian cancer could come back," Brown Tweeted.

"Please get internal ultrasounds/year."

In May, she said "pain is an indicator telling u something is wrong," and that she needed to have a "large cyst" removed because of elevated CA125 levels.

Luckily, her doctor was able to leave in 30 percent of her remaining ovary so that she could harvest eggs. "Want the baby hope," she wrote.

She found it. Brown is working with NYU doctor Jamie Grifo, and added that she's getting shots to "get some eggs" before her second ovary is removed.

"I know I will be fine," she writes. "I beat Cancer once & I'm gonna do it again! I know God has a reason for every speed bump in life & I'm ready."

Best of luck Diem.

Rihanna doesn't care what you think ... on 4/20 or any other day.

That much has been made abundantly clear, but nevertheless, fans were surprised to see her upload Instagram photos that feature her sitting on top of a bald bodyguard's head, rolling what appears to be a cigar leaf full of marijuana.

Good times at Coachella, apparently:

Risque Instagram pics are nothing new for her (see Rihanna topless self portraits from her Hawaiian vacation), but the weed-on-dude's-head pic raised eyebrows.

MTV tweeted a link to a story about how her "marijuana photos from Coachella sparked controversy," citing the above image and the implied marijuana use.

The 24-year-old singer took only 12 minutes to respond ...

Rih-Tweeted

It appears @rihanna got the better of this battle. MTV deleted its original tweet about her, then sent the singer another one shortly after, writing simply:

"Well played."

Displeased by the breast enhancements members of the Teen Mom cast have undergone of late, MTV is looking to put the kibosh on future boob jobs.

She's not the first to go that route, but recent reports that wild child Jenelle Evans' fake boobs are next on tap, the network is looking to crack down.

Farrah Abraham and Maci Bookout also got their breasts done in the recent past, and the network is peeved at the sexed-up image of the moms.

Seriously. The network is supposedly not trying to sell sex ... for once.

Teen Mom 2 Reunion Pic

Says a source close to the production of Teen Mom ...

“MTV has an idea of how they want the girls to come off and big fake boobs isn’t it. They have even called the other girls and begged them to hold off on."

The network, of course, made an entire plot line out of this last summer, but “It was one thing when it was just [Farrah Abraham] ... now it’s out of hand.”

Seriously. One pair of enhanced breasts on an aspiring model was one thing ... three is another thing. Let's just cool it with the superficiality, girls.

When MTV won't air an ad, you know it's gotta be pretty profane.

Such is the case for Kate Upton's latest campaign for skater clothing brand Zoo York, in which she can be seen jogging (and stretching!) through Manhattan as a pair of foul-mouthed cockroaches profanely ogle the the SI cover model.

That about sums it up. Watch the (VERY NSFW) spot below:

Adult Swim programs apparently banned the Kate Upton ad as well, which isn't really a big surprise, given that it makes her Carl's Jr. ad look downright tame.

Two THG favorites are featured on the season premiere of MTV's Punk'd.

The network will reboot this franchise on March 29, with original host Ashton Kutcher serving as executive producer but a different celebrity in charge of the big prank each week. Up first? Justin Bieber pulling one over on Taylor Swift.

Based on the preview below, it looks like Bieber sets Swift up to believe she ruined a couple's wedding... via some kind of big fire. Check it out now:

Future editions of the show - which will air at 10 p.m. on Thursdays - will be hosted by Miley Cyrus, Kellan Lutz, Hayden Panettiere, Bam Margera, and Dax Shepard; while victims will include Khloe Kardashian, Tyler Posey and Demi Lovato.

MTV has just given a green light to a third iteration of its popular Teen Mom franchise, according to reports. Teen Mom 3 will feature a new crop of kids ... and their kids.

This is not to be confused with Season Three of Teen Mom, starring Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, Farrah Abraham and Catelynn Lowell, which is also in the works.

The second season of Teen Mom 2, starring Jenelle Evans, Leah Messer, Kailyn Lowry and Chelsea Houska, recently concluded (and will likely get a third season too).

Teen Mom 2 After Show

Who will be the latest fab four chosen by MTV?

Critics say the shows glamorize teen pregnancy, though the rate has actually plummeted in recent years, and the storylines portrayed are more sad than glamorous overall.

In any case, get ready for a third installment of the phenomenally successful Teen Mom brand, whose cast is selected from the previous crop of 16 and Pregnant stars.

Who do you think it will be? It's hard to say, given that the new season of 16 hasn't even aired yet (March 27), but follow the link to meet the 16 & Pregnant cast.

The man, the myth, the tattooed tanning bed legend - Pauly D of Jersey Shore fame - will officially star in his own spinoff. The Pauly D Project premieres March 29.

His show takes viewers away from Seaside Heights as Pauly D (real name Paul DelVecchio) pursues his DJ dreams, scoring a contract with 50 Cent’s record label.

Between partnering with G-Note Records, opening for Britney Spears on tour and paling around with his friends from Rhode Island, the Project will cover it all.

Pauly D's Hat

Season 5 of Jersey Shore wraps on March 15 and airs a reunion special a week later. The Pauly D Project premieres at 10:30 p.m. March 29, after the return of Punk'd.

That show no longer features Ashton Kutcher, but a rotation of guest hosts like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus. Khloe Kardashian and Demi Lovato are two "targets."

Pauly D's housemates Snooki and JWoww are also filming a Jersey Shore spinoff, though they were recently barred from their preferred filming location of Hoboken.

What do you think? Will you watch a Pauly D-centric program?
