Odd behavior is sort of a hallmark of being famous. We've come to expect some celebrities to pull ridiculous stunts in the name of art or self-promotion.

When Shia LaBeouf wears a paper bag on his head, we tip our heads to the side and tap our chins and go "hmmm..." and wait for answers.

When James Franco hits on an 18 year old on Instagram, we accuse him of being a dirty old man and then realize that's exactly what happens in his newest flick, label it a publicity stunt, and move on to the next scandal.

But then there are our pop stars and the Twitter users who love and loathe them who ask questions that really make us think ..

Why Does Lady Gaga Look Like a Hash Brown?
Good question, @luisspears. Very good question indeed.

Too bad the only answers we can really come up with for these 23 questions for pop stars which cannot actually be answered are "because" and "drugs, of course."

But there's really no way to explain Miley Cyrus' right knee.

Nicki Minaj is a talented rapper, but selling sex is a big part of her career, as well (see Nicki's fake wardrobe malfunction at the VMAs for evidence).

So no one was really surprised when the the video for Nicki's song "Anaconda" was basically just an ass-shaking fest with a Drake lap dance thrown in for good measure.

Even the cover art for "Anaconda" went viral and brought Nicki some of the biggest attention of her career.

Sadly, instead of owning the moment and admitting that - like Kim Kardashian and J-Lo before her - she rode her prominent backside all the way to the a-list, Nicki is pretending that she just doesn't see what all the fuss is about:

Everyone wants a piece of Nicki Minaj these days.

The singer's Anaconda video has broken the VEVO mark for most views in a 24-hour period, which has led to Victoria Justice Twerking her way through her own rendition of the song and, now, to a rather unexpected parody of the footage.

It comes from South African comedy team Derek Watts and the Sunday Blues and it replaces most of the song's soundtrack with farts.

Yup. That's it. The video now features a lot of Nicki's butt and a great deal of Nicki farting because, let's face it, farting is always funny...

Nicki Minaj will keep having the last laugh, of course.

In the following video, Victoria Justice is either paying homage to Nicki Minaj... or challenging her to a Twerk Off.

The actress/singer filmed herself shaking up a storm to Minaj’s “Anaconda” this week and even stuffed her pants with a pillow to best replace Nicki’s impressive backside.

On Instagram, Justice jokes that the footage features her “alter ego, Vicki Minaj.”

Can she compete with the real thing? Decide for yourself now:

The actual Minaj, of course, owns the music world these days.

Just weeks ago the Nicki Minaj-Iggy Azalea feud looked as though it was shaping up to be a rap feud for the ages.

When Nicki mocked Iggy at the BET Awards it was just the latest subtle jab in a hip hop cold war that seemed as though it would get worse before it got better.

Here at THG we had our popcorn out, and we were ready to enjoy some scathing diss tracks from two talented rappers. 

But then just as suddenly as it began...the beef was over.

Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea at the VMAs

That's Nicki and Iggy interacting backstage, and sadly, witnesses say not a b-word was uttered.

In fact, the former rivals apparently had nothing but kind words for one another:

The Nicki Minaj wardrobe malfunction was certainly one of the highlights of last night's MTV Video Music Awards.

Sure, it wasn't as astonishingly unexpected as the now-famous Miley Cyrus twerk-fest of 2013, but millions of viewers were on the edge of their seats, with their fingers on the pause button, eagerly awaiting the moment when Nicki would lose her grip and show her ample assets to the world.

And sources say that's exactly how Nicki planned it.

The official story is that Nicki's dress simply wouldn't zip up in the moments before the performance (because she's so curvy). 

But Nicki decided to take the stage anyway (because she's so daring).

Today the truth came out, and witnesses say Nicki wore the exact same dress same in the exact same fashion during rehearsals (because she she's a master media manipulator and she knows how to get attention).

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards have come and gone, providing plenty of memorable moments from the red carpet to the big stage at the Forum in Inglewood.

From Taylor Swift's red carpet prediction of her own terrible dancing (she delivered) to Blue Ivy and Beyonce showing us all how it's done, this night had it all.

Amber Rose's VMA dress turned heads (as did Demi Lovato's), Ariana and Big Sean were caught holding hands and Common paid tribute to Michael Brown.

As expected, we saw Nicki Minaj Twerking until the cows came home (and Usher sampling the goods), the Kardashians looked bored to tears, and Lorde?

Lorde was Lorde. Awkward, talented Lorde.

Did you miss the ceremony? Want to see all of the aforementioned highlights and more in just two minutes? Let's break down the 2014 MTV VMAs in GIFs!

Nicki Minaj TWERKIN' IT!

Have you clicked through our MTV Video Music Awards fashion gallery yet? Have you decided who looked best and worst on the red carpet?

Okay, good. Now it's time to focus on the actual music at the center of the MTV Video Music Awards.

At last night's fun ceremony, Taylor Swift sang "Shake It Off" for the first time live. Nicki Minaj gave us multiple looks at her Twerking rear end. Adam Levine sang very handsomely on stage. And Beyonce put on one of the most memorable performances in event history.

Whose set did you like best? Whose will you be telling your grandchildren all about? Whose vocals and/or choreography were lacking?

Cycle through the musical acts below and then vote...

An already elaborate and outrageous Nicki Minaj VMA performance became even more risque thanks to a wardrobe malfunction Sunday night on MTV.

Talk about kicking off the show with a bang ... bang.

The mega-show at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., kicked off with a hot, nearly seven-minute-long medley performance by Minaj, Ariana Grande and Jessie J.

Grande performed "Break Free," Minaj slithered through her butt-celebrating single "Anaconda," and Jessie J joined them on the trio's new track "Bang Bang."

At that point came Minaj's wardrobe malfunction.

So what happened? She attempted a quick outfit change to a black dress for the collaboration with Ariana and Jessie J, but didn't quite make it in time.

She awkwardly spent their time on stage holding her tight black dress together while she tried to multitask and rap. Which she did admirably, we must say.

Not even 12 hours ago, a show-opening Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj VMA performance offered fans their first taste of "Bang Bang" the duo's new single.

The divas, along with their third collaborator Jessie J, decided this wasn't sufficient, however, debuting the official “Bang Bang” music video the same night!

Take a look at the pop power trio's effort below and see what you think:

“Bang Bang” is a late but strong entry to the annual "Song of the Summer" debate, facing stiff competition from Ariana's "Problem" among other hit songs.

The video is appropriately hot, featuring Jessie J singing from fire escapes, Ariana prepping for a night out and the "Anaconda" rapper crashing the party.

Via helicopter, naturally. Go hard or go home, right Nicki?

Fortunately for Nicki, unlike the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards stage, there were wardrobe malfunctions involved in the making of this video. Probably.

All of that looks pretty deliberate to us.
