Oh, what a night! It would be impossible to talk about anything except last night's crazy/controversial VMA's. During last night's show, all the way into today, the celeb Twitterverse was buzzing about that Taylor/Kanye moment. Pink, who performed during last night's show, tweeted, "Kanye west is the biggest piece of sh** on earth. Quote me," while Jared Andrew had a similar sentiment, writing, "K now I can comment on the tswift vs. Kanye thing. Kanye needs to not be invited to any sort of awards' show. Ever. What a prick."
Of course, aside from the anti-Kanye twittering, there was much love for the evening's heroine's, Taylor and Beyonce. John Legend posted today, "OK, saw all the highlights on MTV.com. All caught up now. Beyonce is an angel. Good for her" and Elizabeth Banks told fans, "I actually teared up on behalf of that tall Taylor Swift. She's a kid living her dream! She looked like a beanstalk to Kanye's mushroom."
Check out what else celebs had to say about the Taylor/Kanye debacle and Beyonce's class act, as well as their thoughts on Pink's highwire act, Lady GaGa's costume changes, and Janet Jackson's tribute to her late brother Michael below.

By now you've probably experienced the Video Music Awards' Pre-Show red carpet and the full VMAs show (and if you haven't, you can watch the full thing on demand), but we bet you're still dying to know: what the heck was going on in the areas of Radio City that were neglected by the cameras (ahem backstage and in the audience!). Well, your prayers have been answered!
Below, you'll notice a rare shot of the "Twilight" trio — Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson — taken either just before or right after they went on stage to introduce the extended "New Moon" trailer. Not that we need to explain why we're calling it "rare," but c'mon, how often is it that we get to see a shot of the three amigos where RPattz is actually touching KStew (instead of Kristen choosing to lean on and/or edge closer to Taylor)? See: rare.
Anyway, if you click the photo, you'll get to see all kinds of behind-the-scenes goodies from the VMAs, including Beyonce and lioness Lady Gaga posing together, Lauren Conrad reuniting with Whitney Port, a Gerard Butler sighting and more!
The cast of "The Hills" — old and new — flew the L.A. coop for the weekend and headed to the East Coast to hit up the Video Music Awards. We're a little awestruck that Heidi Montag (a.k.a. Miss Wouldn't A Big Event Ever) didn't grace the awards with her presence, but we guess the alleged Audrina Patridge vs. Kristin Cavallari spat was enough to give us our "Hills" drama fix for the night. (Though Kristin told MTV on the red carpet that she "doesn't get along with Audrina," she refuted claims that the "Sorority Row" star didn't show up to the VMAs because of a feud between the two of them. Kristin said she had always been planning to present a Moonman alongside Nelly Furtado and not Audrina, as it had been rumored.)
It was the rant heard 'round the world: Kanye West storming the MTV Video Music Awards stage to protest on behalf of Beyonce (who was nominated for her smash "Single Ladies") during country-pop star Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for Best Female Video. You didn't have to be in the audience at Radio City Music Hall to see the distressed look on Taylor's face when she realized what was going on, but when we caught up with the 19-year-old after the bizarre incident, she was (not surprisingly) super poised.
"It has been a crazy night, hasn't it?" she told MTV News exclusively backstage after the show. "I was up there and I was standing there and I saw Kanye up on the stage. I was really excited... and I kind of wasn't excited anymore." Read More...
Holy girly dress and heels, Batman! We hardly recognized Kristen Stewart when she emerged on the stage (to introduce the awesome new "New Moon" trailer!) during the Video Music Awards in a somewhat sparkly Valentino tulle frock, pointy-toed stilletos and a very mod, pixie-like hairdo.
We might not have been so anxious to see how she and Robert Pattinson were going to look had the "Twilight" duo actually walked the red carpet like their fellow costar Taylor Lautner did, but apparently it was not in the cards. In fact, we originally thought they were supposed to be seated in the audience, but according to our sources over at MTV's Buzzworthy blog, "After the 'New Moon' trailer [aired], R.Pattz and crew [were] whisked backstage, photogs trailing a few steps behind. When Pattinson finally dodges them, he gets a few secs to chug a beer and watch Beyonce's performance, bobbing his head to the beat." So, friends, it shall remain a mystery on why Bella and Edward only showed their pretty little faces for a mere 10 seconds (or so it felt), but at least we got that much, right? Plus, now we know Rob likes "Single Ladies."
What did you think of Kristen's more "glam" look: hit or a miss? And what about Robert's?
We love you MJ. We love you Beyonce and Lady Gaga. But the most exciting moment at the VMAs was the debut of a third “New Moon” trailer. For those of you who missed it, check out the full video and then follow our walk through of the entire trailer, with 70 (!) snap shots in total (click on any of the photos in this post to see all of 'em!). Happy Stephenie Meyer Day, indeed!
Above, we get a closer look at the man being punished by Aro (we look into who the mystery victim could be in our secrets of the "New Moon" trailer article!). Also in our flipbook, we see Jacob and Bella at the movie theater, Bella’s hallucinations of Edward and all those gorgeous Italy scenes.
In honor of the handing out of Moonmen tonight at the Video Music Awards, Hollywood Crush has decided to come up with our own kind of superlatives. So keep reading on to find out everything from who was the best dressed guy of the night to who had the best date (hint: he's green, and we don't mean in an environmentally friendly way).
BEST DRESSED LADY: Taylor Swift shared on the red carpet she has a castle complex and loves fairy tales. Well, she certainly looked the role of a princess in her gorgeous silver and cream Kaufman Franco gown (and then also later in her red dress).
BEST DRESSED GUY: Maybe its the 30 pounds of muscle he put on to look the part of Jacob in "New Moon." Maybe it's just because he's so darn sexy (albeit still underage). Whatever it is, Taylor Lautner in his gray Calvin Klein suit with black shirt underneath was easily the best dressed and hottest guy on the red carpet tonight. We might've given Robert Pattinson the trophy in this category had he shown his face for more than 10 seconds.
BEST DEMONSTRATION OF CLASS: Beyonce, for forgoing her own thank you speech (she won Video Of The Year) and instead inviting a scorned Taylor Swift back on stage so she could re-accept her earlier award for Best Female Video. As you probably heard, Kanye West (quite rudely!) interrupted Taylor's acceptance of her Moonman. So props to you, Beyonce, for being a great role model! Read More...
Crushes were in the air tonight at the VMAs preshow. Beyond the buzz about Lady Gaga's and Beyonce's nine nominations a piece and the excitement about the Michael Jackson tribute, there were some undertones of young Hollywood love abrewing.
Tonight's fashion correspondent Ashley Greene (a.k.a the Alice of "Twilight") asked her onscreen buddyTaylor Lautner who the person he was most excited to see was. After the typical, politically correct noncommittal answers, he finally burst out with, "Taylor Swift," with a half grin on his face. "We love Taylor Swift", Ashley declared. "Yes we do," Taylor replied, with that same smile on his face.

We know, you can't hardly contain your excitement as you anxiously await the chance to be able to watch the exclusive, extended "New Moon" trailer that only just minutes ago aired during the Video Music Awards over and over again.
So take a nice deep breathe in and out (no, really, we don't want anyone passing out on top of their computer keyboards out of exhaustion after screaming "OME!" a multitude of times), and get ready to partake in the awesomeness that is the Volturi and Edward-filled teaser below.
Now that you've watched, be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments section below or on our Twitter @hollywoodcrush. Mostly we're dying to know: Was that vision of Edward floating in the water just after Bella took her cliff dive creepy or inexplicably badass?
Wearing black is a true sign you're closer and closer to becoming an official New Yorker, so there was no better time for "The City" star Whitney Port to flaunt the staple Manhattan color of choice than during the Video Music Awards' grand return to The Big Apple. "Harry Potter" cutie Emma Watson also sported a very similar organza Christopher Kane Fall 2009 design when she was in NYC promoting "Half Blood Prince" . We're not loving the booties with Whit's organza frock, but because she tends to be ahead of the trends, we'll give her a pass on this one.
