    Oh no she didn't! Except maybe she did. During a very weird acceptance speech at the BET Awards Sunday night, Nicki Minaj may have passive-aggressively thrown some shade at fellow artist and up-and-comer Iggy Azalea.

    Minaj was accepting her fifth consecutive award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, beating out Iggy, Angel Haze, Charli Baltimore, and Eve. At some point during her bizarre and rambly acceptance speech, she dropped this line: "What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it."

    Another public event; another opportunity for singer Robin Thicke to make us all feel uncomfortable as hell as he -- yet again -- breaks down and declares his undying love for estranged wife Paula Patton.

    The 37-year-old took the stage at last night's BET Awards looking like a lost puppy -- one that hadn't slept in ages. While sitting at his piano, Robin announced: "I'd like to dedicate this song to my wife and say 'I miss you and I'm sorry.' It's called 'Forever Love.'"

    And then the waterworks began.

    Country music's biggest stars were in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday night, attending the CMT Music Awards. The super sweet and totally lovable Kristen Bell hosted the ceremony for the third time, but it was the first time she did so solo (she hosted with Jason Aldean in 2012 and Toby Keith in 2013).

    The Veronica Mars actress did not disappoint. She opened the show with a hilarious spoof of the infamous elevator fight that took place between Beyonce Knowles' sister Solange and Jay Z after the Met Gala last month. You remember the one, right? No worries though, it seems as though the sisters are friendlier than ever now.

    Holograms appearing on awards shows are getting to be almost the norm. The key word here being "almost". Further proof that we still can't quite shake the uncanny surreal nature of our favorite dearly departed icons returning to the stage? Michael Jackson's hologram performance tonight on the 2014 Billboard Music Awards

    Of course the song was catchy, of course Michael's moves were compelling. A Michael Jackson song is always catchy and the dude was a dance master. None of that is surprising. But it was super weird watching a crowd of dancers swarm a computerized image of the former King of Pop. Even more unsettling? The standing ovation the audience essentially gave his ghost. Weeeeeeird! Me no like!

    Oh my gosh, Kendall Jenner just totally mortified herself during the 2014 Billboard Music Awards! I am sweating and hiding under my duvet in embarrassment FOR her! Kendall, looking intensely glamorous and serving pure Kimmy K realness, trotted out stylishly onto the stage to introduce English pop sensations, 5 Seconds of Summer. No big deal right? After all, looking attractive and speaking into cameras is kind of what she does for a living.

    But maybe not for much longer. It looks like Kendall might need to invest in reading glasses, at the very least. Even with the guidance of the handy-dandy teleprompter, Kendall flubbed up her intro right from the very beginning. It was painfully awkward! I actually began screaming, "OH NO" in a sincere and earnest way.

    Dude. Some guy tried to crawl up Ugly Betty's skirt. Like -- for reals. A man was arrested in France on Friday for trying to slip his head under America Ferrera's skirt on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. So that happened.

    The 30-year-old actress was posing with her How to Train Your Dragon 2 costars Cate Blanchett, Jay Baruchel, Kit Harrington, and Djimon Hounsou when the creepster crawled behind the group and attempted to dive under her Georges Hobeika Coture dress.

    The best performance at last night's iHeartRadio Awards show wasn't on stage. It was in the audience. Did you happen to catch country singer Luke Bryan's face during Ariana Grande's performance? While Ariana shook her booty to "Problem," he and Blake Shelton actually looked like they were having a problem, scowling like a couple of uncomfortable dads at a high school talent show. Wow, I thought she did okay. Was it really that bad from where they sat? And what's with Rihanna's reaction

    Zac Efron is nothing if not a man of his word. Earlier this week, the That Awkward Moment star promised his Twitter followers that if he managed to snag the MTV Movie Award for Best Shirtless Performance, he'd take his shirt off during his acceptance speech.

    And guys, the former Disney Channel star totally delivered. And we totally couldn't be happier.

    When Jessica Alba had her own John Travolta/Adele Dazeem moment and announced the winner, Zac Eee-fron, the party really started. Efron, clad in a short-sleeved denim shirt, made his way to the stage, and just as he promised (granted, with a little button-popping help from Rita Ora), he shed his top.

    Hubba hubba! We're still recovering:

    Last night, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame hosted the 29th annual Induction Ceremony at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Performers included Hall and Oats, KISS, Cat Stevens, and Nirvana. Fans had been wondering who was going to front what I believe to be one of the greatest bands ever -- no one could do what Kurt Cobain did. It had to be different enough but honor him in the right way. And then we learned it was going to be Joan Jett, Kim Gordon, Lorde, and St. Vincent singing different songs during the performance. Fans were nervous. It had to be great. It was going to be emotional. This was quite an eclectic mix fronting one of the best bands ever. Would it work? It did.

    But Nirvana didn't stop there. After the Barclays show ended, they headed over to Greenpoint, Brooklyn, to play a secret after-show at one of the neighborhood's most beloved but gritty venues -- the tiny Saint Vitus bar on Manhattan Avenue. Incredible.

    Things have been looking up for Amanda Bynes ever since she was discharged from a hospital after being forcibly committed back in July. She's enrolled in design school, is under the care of her parents, and has posted a couple of pictures of herself looking happy and healthy. But exactly why Amanda was hospitalized after months of erratic behavior is still a mystery, though rumors said she was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Now Amanda is speaking out about what really happened.
