When it comes to honoring true music talent ... watch something else. The MTV Video Music Awards do none of that. It's an arbitrary award show on a network called Music Television that no longer airs music videos.

But when it comes to celebrity fashion, gossip, rumors, random feuds, meltdowns and buzz-worthy events, the VMAs are in a league of their own.

Here are some of the highlights (and lowlights, thanks to that d!ck Kanye West) from the 2009 MTV VMAs, which aired Sunday, September 13 ...

  • After Taylor Swift took home the prized Moon Man for Best Female Video, Kanye West hjiacked her speech with a belligerent, absurd tirade.
  • Later, Kanye apologized for his outburst, using way too many exclamation points and saying he was just being "real." Yeah. A real a$$hole.
  • Fans and celebs alike decried Kanye's outburst, with the most scathing and hilarious reply coming from an unlikely source: Kelly Clarkson.
  • The much-anticipated Janet Jackson tribute to Michael featured her dancing along to the music and video of their classic duet, "Scream."
  • MTV also aired a preview of This Is It, the documentary footage showing MJ preparing for the tour that was to begin shortly after he died.
  • OMG: An extended New Moon trailer was unveiled.

Irate, drunk jackass Kanye West inexplicably cut off the adorable Taylor Swift and declared that Beyonce more deserving of a completely made-up award.

  • Alicia Keys and Jay-Z's performance was crashed by Lil Mama. Not Kanye style, she just danced along and hilariously posed with them at the end.
  • On a fashion note, Kristin Cavallari and Katy Perry wore, like, the same dress. Or at least dresses of the same color, length, and general appeal.
  • Pink and Shakira seriously wore the same dress though. Faux pas!
  • These girls Knowles fashion: Both Beyonce and Solange shined.
  • Who needs a dress? Whitney Port opted to wear sexy lingerie.
  • Naturally, and predictably, Lady Gaga was not to be outdone.

Reverse-mulleted Kate Gosselin began her first of two guest hosting gigs on The View today, and she didn't hold back when it came to ... well, anything.

First off, Kate defended Serena Williams' outburst in the U.S. Open semifinals Saturday night, in which she profanely threatened some poor line judge.

Serena did, that is, not Kate. Though that wouldn't shock us. Nag.

"The important thing here is that she's in the public eye," Kate said. "We're all human. In the privacy of my own home, this weekend, I melted down."

Asked what it's like to see estranged husband Jon bringing new girlfrien, Hailey Glassman around her eight kids, she said, "It's difficult, I'm not going to lie."

"For the sake of my children, I'm going to take the high road."

So why does Kate Gosselin keep on filming her TLC show?

"So many people say, 'Stop ... just pull out,'" she said. "I can stop, but I'd still have all the flack and the paychecks, I have to support my children."

"I’m a single mom, and now more than ever I need to be working hard to support my children. It comes with a price; Every job comes with a price."

"My focus is supporting my family and children and whatever way that comes, in a healthy way, I’m gonna do it. I'm essentially doing it by myself."

Ouch, Jon. That one burns worse than that rash Deanna ... forget it.

When Whoopi Goldberg asked if she's paid enough, she replied, "Um, is anybody paid enough?" Waah. Crazy, impoverished lady should totally start her own charity. Or we'll be seeing Kate Gosselin nude in Playboy soon.

In all the talk about Kris Allen and Adam Lambert, the most recent American Idol finalists, David Archuleta sent a powerful message this month:

Don't forget about me!

The 18-year old season seven runner-up belted out "America the Beautiful" prior to yesterday's matches at the U.S. Open. He was accompanied by United States Marine Corps, 6th Communications Battalion.

Following his rendition, the adorable singer Tweeted:

“Got done singing ‘America the Beautiful!’ So neat especially with the marines! Gonna watch some of the game now! Feeling really tired for some reason, but what a great day! Thanks so much you guys for watching tonight and your comments!

Impressive as always, David Archuleta entertained tennis fans over the weekend.

It's a small miracle that both of today's celebrity birthdays are even here today.

One survived massive amounts of mind-altering drugs, the other car rides on his mother's lap and nearly being dropped on his head when he was an infant.

Either way, we are thrilled to report that two favorites of THG have cheated death and are still breathing, to our knowledge, on this 14th day of September.

Here's a photo tribute to celeb toddler and brother of Jayden James Federline, who turned three on Saturday, pimp-in-training Sean Preston Federline (4) ...

Mommy is Crying

And singer-turned-train-wreck Amy Winehouse (26, going on 4) ...

  • Winehouse-d

Leave it to Lil Mama, whoever that is, to try to close out the already-strange 2009 MTV Video Music Awards with one of the oddest moments of the night.

While it wasn't as ridiculous or rude as Kanye West's meltdown and hijacking of Taylor Swift's speech, the spectacle of Lil Mama climbing on stage for no reason during Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' VMA performance last night was still hilariously weird.

For nearly five minutes, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys were performing “Empire State of Mind,” a number that was to close the always-memorable MTV award show.

But then there was Lil Mama, appearing out of nowhere, standing awkwardly beside Jay and Alicia in a B-girl stance, whatever that is, as the song ended:

What the hell was Lil Mama doing on stage with Jay-Z?

In short, it was a puzzling and random conclusion to the evening.

A representative for Jay-Z, quoted by Entertainment Weekly this morning, says she has “No clue how it happened.” That makes about 10 million of us.

Viewers and celebrities alike had a field day with it. Fabolous even Twittered "lil mama is JayZ’s hypeman, she jus got there late!" That one's pretty good.

It's actually not as remarkable as it sounds, especially following Kanye's drunken antics, but watching Jay-Z’s understated, yet perplexed-seeming body language when he sees her unannounced appearance is still worth watching.

Granted, the Kanye West meltdown at last night's MTV Video Music Awards was the most shocking development of the night.

But this would be a close second: Ashley Greene and Adrienne Bailon showed up at the event - and both actresses were fully clothed!

Mugler Shot

We kid because we care, but Greene and Bailon were each involved in nude photo scandals earlier this year. Fortunately, the young stars remembered to don a dress for the event, as evidenced below.

But which celeb looked cuter? That's up to readers to decide. Compare, contrast and vote below...

Who looked cuter on the red carpet?

As if we couldn't love Kelly Clarkson any more...

The original American Idol woke up this morning and responded to Kanye West's outrageous behavior at last night's MTV Video Music Awards by taking to her official blog.

Kelly summed up our thoughts on the assholic Kanye perfectly, so we'll just let her take it from here...

“Dear Kanye, What happened to you as a child?? Did you not get hugged enough?? I think we’re all just curious as to what would make a grown man go on national television and make a talented artist, let alone teenager, feel like s—. I mean, I’ve seen you do some pretty s—ty things, but you just keep amazing me with your tactless, asshole ways.

Kanye the Ass

"It’s absolutely fascinating how much I don’t like you. I like everyone. I even like my asshole ex that cheated on me over you... which is pretty odd since I don’t even personally know you.

The best part of this evening is that you weren’t even up for THIS award and yet you still have a problem with the outcome. Is winning a moon man that much of a life goal?? You can have mine if it will shut you up. Is it that important, really??

“I was actually nominated in the same category that Taylor won and I was excited for her... so why can’t you be?? I’m not even mad at you for being an asshole... I just pity you because you’re a sad human being."

Amen, sister! Pink was less wordy, but equally vicious toward West. She Tweeted: Kanye west is the biggest piece of s*** on earth. Quote me.

As for Taylor Swift? The 19-year old cutie took the proverbial high road, simply saying: "I don't want to start anything because I had a great night tonight."

We'll start it for you, T-Swizzle. Choose a side in this feud, readers. Whose team are you on?

Beyonce was at the center of controversy last night - through no fault of her own.

If you missed it, that jackass Kanye West decided to interrupt Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards, proclaiming that Beyonce was more deserving of Best Female Video after producing THE GREATEST VIDEO OF ALL TIME!!!!!

To her credit, Beyonce was horrified, then reached out to Swift with a classy gesture after the incident. Yeah. Even she thinks Kanye West is a moron.

Moving on to more important things, girl was lookin' flat out FIERCE last night in that red dress. So vibrant. The plunging neckline and the shoes? Wow.

Not to be outdone, her sister Solange showed up and ... well, she was probably outdone. But that black number with the shaved head looked cool.

Who Knowles fashion better? Vote in our poll below!

This style showdown features a pair of beautiful girls who used to star on MTV's The Hills before moving on to bigger and better things. Or at least The City.

One decided to wear a dress, while the other opted for lingerie.

Yeesh, Whitney Port. We didn't know you had such a kinky side. Not that we're complaining, but you might want to put those things away next award show.

Lauren Conrad, meanwhile, looked about how you would expect her to: classically gorgeous. We like the new hairstyle, too. She always mixes it up so well.

Just last month, for the first time since being diagnosed with cancer (specifically a rare form of Hodgkin's disease), Ethan Zohn was finally feeling better.

Three months of chemotherapy had the Survivor winner back on track.

"I was off chemo," he says. "I was running up to seven miles" in preparation for November's New York City Marathon. "I was happy, I was going out."

"I went up to Boston to see the family and was feeling great."

But then the other shoe fell.

We're pulling for you, Ethan Zohn.

On August 26, his doctor called with post-chemo test results – and they're not good: "My cancer is back," Zohn said. "I have never been so scared in my life."

"It was a complete punch in the face," says the reality TV star.

When the news hit, Zohn decided to wait until doctors started him on a new course of treatment before sharing the news with family, friends and the world.
