RiRi is getting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMAs on Sunday, and so she’s performing, of course. The show’s executive producer says that RiRi’s performance will be one of those “holy crap” moments in VMAs history. Since they’re all trying to out-edgy each other at the VMAs, I’m going to assume that RiRi is literally going to crap on a crucifix during her performance. – Lainey Gossip

As you probably already know, Mylan Pharmaceuticals, the maker of the EpiPen, have raised the price of the life-saving allergy shot by over 400% in the U.S. and has made it impossible for many people to afford a drug that prevents a little thing called FUCKING DYING. The EpiPen cost around $57 in 2007 and today, it costs up to $600 for two, which contain $1 worth of medicine. Expect the ho stroll to get a lot more crowded, because people and parents who need that shot are going to have to sell their ass for EpiPen money.
Sarah Jessica Parker used to accept a check from Mylan to peddle EpiPen in the media, but after the news of the insane price hike exploded everywhere, she spit on her contract and announced that she’s done with them professionally.
This video of a memaw slaying the beat and heating up a Waffle House parking lot in Georgia with her scorching hot moves was posted on Facebook by Abby Tucker all the way in the olden days of 2014, but it just started making the rounds on the internet this month. I wish I would’ve seen it sooner, because it would’ve been nice knowing that brawls and fights aren’t the only viral-worthy shit that happens at a Waffle House.
Kate Gosselin’s “irate Bath & BodyWorks customer” hair from the Jon & Kate Plus 8 days might be long gone, but the awkward awfulness between her and her ex-husband Jon Gosselin lives on. The latest real-life episode of Jon & Kate Still H8 Each Other happened earlier this week, and of course it’s a mess.
“Oh God, don’t look now, but I think Alfalfa Sprout of Sunnybrook Farm is trying to look sexy for the paps again… My heart can’t take anymore secondhand embarrassment” is what that dude behind her is thinking to himself, obviously.
Taylor Swift reportedly didn’t submit herself for any MTV VMA nominations and so she didn’t get any. There’s really no reason for her to go to the VMAs this Sunday in NYC, but since she’s one to never miss out on an opportunity to trend on Twitter, I figured she’d show up with a boysenberry-scented lawsuit to throw at those diabolical villains Kanye West and Kim Kartrashian. But a source “exclusively” confirms to People that even though Taylor is in NYC right now, she’s sitting out the VMAs this year. Uh huh… I’m really sure she’s going to sit this one out.
