Miley Cyrus' new single "We Can't Stop" marks a change in musical direction, but the singer tells Billboard she doesn't want to be "the white Nicki Minaj."
Awards and performances may have been the main attraction at the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night, but there were also plenty of eyebrow-raising moments (sometimes literally) behind the scenes as well. Fortunately, vigilant social media users were on hand to capture all of the crazy happenings and immortalize them online. Here are the five wackiest moments from the awards, in GIF form:
Vince Vaughn hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend for the first time in 15 years, with musical guest Miguel. The episode included spoofs of the gun-control debate and (of course) Brad Paisley and LL Cool J's misguided duet "Accidental Racist."
Check out some of the highlights from Saturday's episode below. How do you think Vaughn did?
Two battered, tragic warriors meet face to face before their climactic skirmish, and there's at least one thing they can agree upon (besides the desire to kill each other): "There is no justice. Not in this world." What, you were expecting a happy ending to Starz' bloody breakout hit Spartacus? (Apologies if that's a spoiler.)
The series finale (Friday, 9/8c) justifies this last season's subtitle, War of the Damned, with a truly epic clash of historic titans. It's up to its bared knees in graphic gore as usual, but the finale is steeped even further in stirring demonstrations and declarations of honor, sacrifice and a willingness to die for the cause of freedom. "Whatever happens ... we decide our fates, not you," proclaims Spartacus (Liam McIntyre), leader of the outnumbered slave army, during his secret meeting with Roman "Imperator" Crassus (Simon Merrells). Unlike past seasons, when the Roman antagonists were mostly craven dupes, neither Crassus nor his second-in-command Julius Caesar (Todd Lasance) are fools — but neither is Spartacus, who still has some bold and unexpected maneuvers up his shield during this primal and visceral encounter of fire, blood and literal and metaphorical guts.
