Of the many charming things about Pitbull, perhaps the most charming is his ability to have a blast wherever he goes. A beach party? A weird roof? The set of Men in Black III? All are made just a little more fun with Pitbull's goofy grin.

Fresh off his successful night hosting the American Music Awards, Pitbull took to his Facebook page to premiere the new video for his Ke$ha collaboration "Timber." Fitting the song's country-western vibe, the video finds Mr. Worldwide living it up in a classic Southern honky-tonk along with Ke$ha, a Nashville native.

Austin Mahone is belting it out every chance he gets after a blood clot and inflamed throat put him in the hospital and prevented him from singing for three weeks.

"I feel great. I feel a hundred percent better. I’m just ready to get on the stage and start performing again," Mahone, 17, told PEOPLE's Raha Lewis at the American Music Awards.

"You know, I sing every day and when I had strep throat and I had that blood clot I couldn't sing at all for like, three weeks straight. It was torture," he says.

Ariana Grande Channels Jessica Rabbit at AMAs

Originally posted 11/25/2013 11:00AM

Ariana Grande may have been born a little late to understand the reference, but her look at the American Music Awards Sunday night inevitably drew comparisons to sultry cartoon vixen Jessica Rabbit, from 1988's Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

The 20-year-old's strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown didn't have a thigh-high split, and Grande accessorized with a Jimmy Choo clutch and Tacori jewels rather than arm-length gloves, but her flowing tresses were more than a little similar to Jessica's Veronica Lake-esque 'do.

After paying tribute to salsa queen Celia Cruz and tearing it up "On the Floor" at the AMAs Sunday night, Jennifer Lopez continued to party well into the night.

Lopez attended an after party at Chateau Marmont hosted by the owners of DSquared.

The American Idol judge, whose Kohls campaign (#getjenniferthere) and knockout performance made her the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter, wore a black DSquared dress designed by the fashion house's twin brothers, Dean and Dan.

While DJ Big Syphe spun tunes, Lopez, 44, spent the night dancing with boyfriend Beau "Casper" Smart and stunning BFF Leah Remini, with whom she shared a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs.

Jessica Biel Tells Internet to 'Calm Down' After Justin Timberlake Wins American Music Awards

Originally posted 11/24/2013 10:30PM

Justin Timberlake is one talented guy and his wife, Jessica Biel, is plenty aware.

On Sunday, Timberlake, 32, kicked off the fan-voted American Music Awards with a win for favorite pop/rock male artist before taking home awards for soul/R&B artist and soul/R&B album categories.

He also brought the audience to their feet with his performance of "Drink You Away," an alcohol-infused anthem from his latest release, The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.

But while everyone in the house seemed to be under Timberlake's spell, Biel, 31, was nowhere to be found. Fans took to Twitter to ponder where she was (and note their jealousy over her hot hubby).

Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles sparked relationship rumors this past week when they were spotted sharing a meal in West Hollywood. But a few days after their eyebrow-raising meal the duo are speaking out separately, and hinting that things are platonic – for now.

"We're friends. He's cool, yeah, he's cool," Kendall told E's Guiliana Rancic Sunday on the American Music Awards red carpet while standing beside younger sister Kylie.

"It's very hard to have friends of the opposite sex," Kylie chimed in a few moments later.

"You go out with one person, you're automatically dating them," Kendall, 18, added.
