Did Nicki Minaj Fake Her Wardrobe Malfunction at the VMAs?

There weren't a lot of non-Beyoncé related talked-about moments at this year's VMAs, but one that came sort of close was Nicki Minaj's wardrobe malfunction during the show's (great) opening performance.

These Are, Apparently, the First Nikki Finke Photos in Decades

Back in 2009, Defamer offered $1,000 for new pictures of Nikki Finke, the then-powerful, much-feared Hollywood blogger who hadn't been photographed in God knows how long.

He has joked about fucking his friend's mom, gotten swung on in an Italian restaurant and, of course, pissed in a mop bucket.

Look At All This Shade-Throwing at the Emmys

The Emmys Censored the Punchline of That Last Robin Williams Bit

Tonight, the Emmys paid tribute to Robin Williams. Billy Crystal's speech to his late friend was heartfelt and touching, but the the accompanying montage missed an opportunity to pay genuine tribute to Williams at his absolute best—by cutting the profane punchline of one of his most famous bits. » 8/25/14 10:32pm Monday 10:32pm
