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...

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...
