If you're one of the cynical people who thought the infamous elevator fight earlier this year between Solange Knowles and her brother-in-law Jay Z was a publicity stunt, you're probably right — at least according to Solange and Beyonce's father.
Our top moments of the week:
13. Best Response: In case you were living under a rock, or, you know, watching something else on TV Monday night, Gwen Stefani took a page from John Travolta's book and totally mispronounced Stephen Colbert's last name when she presented at the Emmys. Even though Colbert had already pre-taped his Tuesday show last week, the host still gets in a small jab at the much-discussed gaffe in the blink-and-you'll-miss-it opening credits, in which "Colbore" comes across the screen next to other descriptive words like "honorable," "star-spangled" and...
Beyonce used the MTV stage yet again to put rumors to rest. Although she confirmed her pregnancy with a belly rub a few years back, this time she used a kiss with her husband Jay Z to perhaps squash reports that the couple is heading for divorce.
On hand to receive the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award, the 32-year-old diva performed a 16-minute set (watch it here) that included "Drunk in Love," "Mine" and "Jealous" as Jay watched from the audience with the couple's daughter Blue Ivy on his lap. After the performance, Jay and Blue came onstage to present a tearful Queen Bey with the award as the adorable 2-year-old said, "Good job, Mommy." Jay Z and Beyonce kissed after he handed her the statuette.
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."

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.
