Miley Cyrus was the big winner at Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards, but it wasn't receiving the top honor or giving an outrageous performance that had people talking. Instead, Cyrus didn't even take the stage -- she had a young homeless man accept the trophy on her behalf, while she watched through tears from her seat.

After Jimmy Fallon announced that Cyrus won Video of the Year for "Wrecking Ball," the 21-year-old hugged a young man who then walked on stage, speech in hand. "My name is Jessie," he said. "I am accepting this award on behalf of the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost and scared for their lives right now ... Though I may have been invisible to you on the streets, I have the same dreams that brought many of you here tonight." After sharing staggering statistics about homelessness, particularly in Los Angeles, Jessie pointed the audience to Cyrus' Facebook page, adding, "A dream you dream alone is only a dream. But a dream we dream together is reality."

On The Run Tour: Beyoncé and Jay Z
If you're a living, breathing person, you probably already know that HBO is filming Beyoncé and Jay Z's final two shows of their popular On the Run tour on Sept. 12 and 13.
You probably also know that HBO plans to air those as a single concert film on Sept. 20 at 9/8c. But what you don't know is that there's now a trailer for the film featuring Bey and Jay pointing finger guns and blowing smoke rings (it makes sense, promise) before launching into clips of the two performing together.
In the world of hip-hop music, opening shots are fired over beats, and rapper Liv just lobbed some serous artillery at Beyoncé.
Nicki Minaj, Beyonce
Beyonce and Jay Z are soldiering through their On the Run tour in the midst of divorce rumors, and Beyonce, for one, is only fanning the gossip flames.
Over the weekend, Beyonce released a remix of her song "Flawless," featuring Nicki Minaj and addressing the altercation that occurred between Jay Z and Beyonce's sister Solange in an elevator earlier this year.
50 Shades of Grey
Will riding crops be the new heart-shaped box of chocolates next Valentine's Day?
The first official trailer for 50 Shades of Grey — which is scheduled to hit theaters February 13, 2015 — was released Thursday, offering viewers a first look at Dakota Johnson as mousy literature student Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan as BDSM-loving millionaire Christian Grey.
Beyonce continues to run the world — at least as far as the MTV Video Music Awards are concerned.
The singer leads the 2014 VMA nominees with eight nods, including Video of the Year, Best Female Video and Best Collaboration (for "Drunk in Love" with her husband Jay Z). She's also set to perform a medley of her hits during Sunday's broadcast, and is the recipient of this year's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
Game of Thrones
As fans get increasingly heated and worried over whether Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin will finish his book series A Song of Ice and Fire, on which the hit drama is based, the powers that be over at HBO aren't nervous at all...
Beyoncé was the big winner at Sunday's BET Awards, which both began and ended under violent circumstances.
Hours prior to the show, two separate incidents occurred that resulted in one death and several injuries. According to The Hollywood Reporter, gunfire broke out at an unaffiliated pre-party for the show and ended with five people being injured, one fatally. A man was also stabbed at another BET pre-show party, but is listed in stable condition. No one is in custody for either incident and BET says both parties were unauthorized and unaffiliated with BET.

OK, that's not even close to being the same thing, but it's what we've got to work with, and you know what they say: Never look a gift-Beyoncé in the mouth.
Bill Hader, Seth Meyers and Andy Samberg
Saturday marked the Season 39 finale of Saturday Night Live, but you would have never known it from the episode itself, which boasted best sketches that relied mostly on guest stars who were fixtures on previous seasons.
With Andy Samberg hosting, the blasts from the past continued with appearances by Bill Hader, Seth Meyers, Maya Rudolph, Martin Short, Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen. We were shocked not to see a duet from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
Highlights included a hilarious cold open lampooning the Solange-Jay Z-Beyonce Elevator Incident, the return of the Kissing Family, and not one, but two digital shorts. Check out the night's best sketches below:
