Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj's supposed wardrobe malfunction during Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards may have been something that was planned all along.

Following the singer's performance of her latest single, "Anaconda," she hurried off stage to quickly change her costume in time to join Ariana Grande and Jessie J for a performance of the trio's new single, "Bang Bang," and it appeared that she ran out of time and had to hold her outfit closed to avoid anything falling out.

Minaj said she "ran out of time getting zipped up" before having to get back out on stage, but according to TMZ.com the whole t...

Sofia Vergara
Sofia Vergara was literally put on a pedestal during Monday night's 66th Emmy Awards, and naturally the world is freakng out about it.

The "Modern Family" star took the stage to introduce Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Bruce Rosenblum to give the yearly speech on the state of the industry, or as many see it, to bore viewers for five minutes, and to keep people from nodding off during his rambling, he asked Vergara to step up onto a pedestal that was next to him. As she did, it began rotating, showing off the actress' sexy curves and most likely distracting millions of viewers from t...

Sofia Vergara And 15 Of The Best Dressed Women At The 2014 Emmys
The 2014 Emmy Awards telecast on Monday night wasn't much to write home about, trudging along in mediocrity save for a few above average moments.

Even the fashion this year was so-so. Few stars stood out this year -- a stark contrast to Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards -- and, of course there were some bad dresses, but even the bad wasn't that bad (well, if you take Lena Dunham out of the equation).

Starting off with three women whose amazing curves were on display all night, Modern Family's Sofia Vergara, True Detective's Alexandra Daddario and Mad Men's Christina Hendricks, these 1...

Miley Cyrus' Homeless VMAs Date Is Wanted By Police

Weird Al Yankovic Parodies TV Theme Songs, Pushes 'Game Of Thron
There were few highlights to a rather uneventful and, frankly, boring 2014 Emmy Awards ceremony Monday night, but about halfway into the show, 'Weird Al' Yankovic took the stage for three-and-a-half minutes for a parody medley of the theme songs of hit shows "Mad Men," "Scandal," "Homeland," "Modern Family" and "Game of Thrones," the latter of which was the focus of the skit and co-starred Andy Samberg as the show's now deceased young king Joffrey Baratheon.

Dancers dressed in outfits the likes of the ones on the show surrounded the singer as he pleaded for writer George R.R. Martin to hur...
