Miley Cyrus 'Couldn't Be Happier' About Her VMAs Performance

Originally posted 08/28/2013 02:35PM

It was the twerk seen 'round the world – and it was all Miley's idea.

Cyrus, 20, had been working on the VMAs performance of her hit "We Can't Stop" – along with her racy duet with Robin Thicke – for about a month before MTV's big awards show on Sunday.

"Most it came from Miley's brain," Cyrus's manager Larry Rudolph tells PEOPLE. "But she collaborated with [her music video director] Diane Martel, who helped her conceive it and bring in the spirit of the VMAs. And with Todd James who designed all of those amazing bears."

Ed Sheeran: Most Women Would Rather Mother Me Than Take Me to Bed

Ed Sheeran: Most Women Want to Mother Me

Originally posted 08/27/2013 10:00AM

British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is one of the hottest redheads in showbiz. But he doesn't really get it.

"I find the whole concept of women screaming at me so odd," Sheeran, 22, told PEOPLE at Sunday's Video Music Awards. "It's very flattering, but I don't think I will ever consider myself to be a sex symbol."

Attention from female fans also isn't always what it seems, according to Sheeran, who's a paddleboarding pal of Taylor Swift. "If you speak to most women, they want to take me home and mother me rather than take me to bed," he said. "I just have that impression."

Lance Bass in Brooklyn – Proof of 'NSYNC Reunion at VMAs?

Originally posted 08/25/2013 04:45PM

Lance Bass was seen getting coffee on Saturday in Manhattan – just one more sign that 'NSYNC is reuniting for the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night.

'NSYNC's breakout star, Justin Timberlake, is receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the show and his former bandmates – Bass, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone – are expected to join him to perform a medley of their hits.

In one of the worst-kept secrets in showbiz, the guys have been refusing to confirm their reunion, with Bass declaring earlier this week on his SiriusXM radio show, "Dirty Pop with Lance Bass," that the rumor was "so cute."

Katy Perry will be the closing act at MTV's Video Music Awards on Sunday.

The 28-year-old will perform her latest single, "Roar" for the first time on live television from an undisclosed location – away from the rest of the awards at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

Will she be joined by beau (and duet partner) John Mayer on top of the Brooklyn bridge? Or will Brooklyn native Jay-Z guide her around his hometown from the Marcy Projects to Coney Island? Will she pay tribute to Notorious B.I.G. in Bedstuy? Or will she go all GIRLS on us and channel Lena Dunham in Greenpoint?

Justin Timberlake knows a thing or two about making a good video.

"SexyBack"? Totally Sexy. "Rock Your Body"? Fun with light bulbs! "Cry Me a River"? The best eff you to an ex of all time!

But on Sunday night, when Timberlake receives the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards, it'll be his costar in a different kind of video who presents him with the honor.

Diem Brown Blogs: Dealing with Mood Swings After Chemo

Originally posted 08/22/2013 11:15AM

After successfully battling ovarian cancer for the second time and sharing her journey on PEOPLE.com, Diem Brown is back to blogging. This time around, she will not only share updates on her own life, but also about competing on her new show, MTV's The Challenge: Rivals II.

Success is when preparation meets opportunity.

Some people might call me overly cautious, but I try to make sure that when the right opportunity presents itself that I am 100 percent prepared for it. That, above all, explains why I ran, swam, and trained so hard in preparation for this season of The Challenge. I was terrified that if I slacked off, my cancer treatment side effects would catch up to me in the final.

I am not a middle-of-the-road type of person. Everyone who truly knows me, knows where I stand on almost every issue and subject. Growing up in a family of six, I learned early on if you don't speak up and have a stance on something, you won't have a voice in anything.

The strength of my voice has varied throughout my run on The Challenge: Rivals II. However, I learned that if you don't play the game, the game will play you.

What holds us back? I think if we dig deep and expose the core reasons why we don't jump in, leap, go for it, etc., we'll discover they're centered around the limiting emotion of fear.

Fear binds us and inhibits us from achieving our full potential. Finding a way to break away from those fears is how we can set ourselves free. Overcoming fear may be uncomfortable, but it's conquerable.

Paws up, Little Monsters!

After a hip injury in February that derailed her Born This Way Ball Tour and confined her to a (24-karat gold-plated wheelchair), Lady Gaga is slowly making her way back into the spotlight.

The singer will take the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 25, when she'll perform the new (and still untitled) single from her upcoming fourth studio album, ARTPOP.

Gaga had taken the stage briefly for a performance of the "Star Spangled Banner" at New York's Gay Pride Parade Kickoff Rally on June 28, but the VMA performance will mark Gaga's official return.
