Blue Ivy Carter, Jay-Z and Beyonce
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."

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.
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...
Since Beyonce and Jay Z kicked off their On The Run tour, there's only one thing people seem to be talking about — Justin Bieber.
The biggest celebrity feuds
Despite the fact that Bey bared her derriere on stage, the most scandalous moment of the joint tour so far has been some shade Queen Bey threw at Bieber during Jay's performance of "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)." As backdrop for the song, the duo projected an array of celebrity mug shots, including Bieber's, before Beyonce told the crowd "Even the greatest can fall."

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:
