Anyone who's ever been the new kid on the block knows just how awkward it is to find yourself thrown together with two close friends who've been besties since forever—and that's even when said friends aren't two Hollywood A-listers who've been joined at the proverbial hip practically since before you were born. So when we caught up with Carey Mulligan on the red carpet at the premiere of "The Great Gatsby", we had to ask: Was there any middle-school-style weirdness when it came to starring alongside Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio, who've been BFFs for 25 years?
In a word: nope!
"We all started hanging out," Carey said of her early days on the set, before going on to say that she had nothing but compliments for her co-stars: "Leo was incredible from the beginning, they both were. They were so generous."
If you like hot music, pop princesses and fresh new things that nobody has ever seen before, then here's an important final reminder about something else you'll like: a fabulous, one-of-a-kind date tonight with the lovely Selena Gomez! Today's the day when the star is serving up the EXCLUSIVE world premiere of her video for "Come & Get It"—followed by a 30-minute interview in which she'll answer as many questions as we (and her fans) can throw at her.
The MTV First fun starts just shy of eight o'clock tonight on your television (7:53 p.m., to be exact), with the interview happening online immediately afterward—so ready your remote, mark your browser and set all kinds of alarms so that you don't miss your chance to see Selena's first musical foray into some seriously steamy territory. Remember: Per this titillating 10-second teaser, we already know there's red lipstick and actual fire involved.
Last night's big ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art had a way of bringing out even the most staid starlet's inner fashion freak—which is why it's one of our favorite events ever, of course. Wild hair, goth gowns and fierce faces were all the rage at this year's gala, with no shortage of standout looks to choose from...but we did our best to narrow it down, with six superlative awards for the most inventive, surprising, and stunning styles of the evening. Who's on our list? Read on!
Best Impression of a Punk Rock Porcupine
Miley Cyrus went punk pretty in a slinky Marc Jacobs gown with glittery accents and a fishnet overlay, along with fierce finger hardware, a sky-high spiked 'do and bright red lips.
Kristen Stewart was a burgundy bombshell in this stunning Stella McCartney jumpsuit with lace inset accents.
Most Fabulous Femme Fatale
Jennifer Lawrence looked ready to star in a noir thriller with her tea-length beaded black Dior dress, velvet platform heels and a black net veil for extra drama.
"Beautiful Creatures" actress Emmy Rossum is ready to be one of the beautiful creatures at tonight's Met Ball—essentially the Academy Awards of fashion. The starlet took to Twitter today to broadcast her enthusiasm for the big night, whose theme is "Punk."
Emmy is one of several actresses, including Jennifer Morrison, Hailee Steinfeld and Naomie Harris, who will be wearing one-of-a-kind Donna Kara Atelier gowns to the festivities. We can't wait to see how beautiful they look!
With artists like Beyoncé, Florence Welch, Lana Del Ray and will.i.am hitting high notes on the Jay-Z produced "Great Gatsby" soundtrack, you know it's going to be an album you'll play over...and over...and over again. But as we count down the hours (repeat: HOURS) until the soundtrack drops on Tuesday, we're taking an EXCLUSIVE deep dive into the album with director Baz Luhrmann, Jay-Z and the film's stars.

Taylor Momsen and Blake Lively aren't the only former "Gossip Girl" cast members with musical aspirations. The latest to show off his silky smooth vocal cords is co-star Penn Badgley, who stars in the Jeff Buckley biopic, "Greetings From Tim Buckley," which opened last week in New York and Los Angeles and is available on iTunes and video on demand.
For the uninitiated, Jeff Buckley was a singer/songwriter who gained acclaim in the '90s for his music, which in addition to numerous original songs also included a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah"—perhaps his most enduring work. Jeff's story ended abruptly and tragically when he drowned in Tennessee's Wolf River in 1997. He was only 30.
And just like that, the Ravenswood population sign needs an update.
The Hollywood Reporter has the news that "L.A. Complex" actor Brett Dier and model Elizabeth Whitson have joined the ABC Family series, a spin-off of the network's hit "Pretty Little Liars."
The two will play twins Abel and Olivia: the former, a "lone wolf and old soul" who's slow to trust; the latter, a "prom queen who's fallen from grace" and lost most of her friends. Brett and Elizabeth join previously announced star Tyler Blackburn, whose character Caleb is making the move from Rosewood to Ravenswood during the "Pretty Little Liars" Halloween special. (No word yet on what Caleb's relocation will mean for his relationship with Hanna...)
FROM MTV NEWS: Love actually is all around for actress Keira Knightley: Over the weekend, the 28-year-old " Anna Karenina" star tied the knot with rocker boyfriend James Righton.
Keira and the Klaxons singer/keyboardist married in a small, 30-minute ceremony surrounded by friends and family in Mazan, France. The couple had been engaged since May of last year.
Get more on Keira's nuptials at MTV News, including her surprising frock!
You know who's really good at playing titular, tortured, lovestruck leading men in films directed by Baz Luhrmann? Leonardo DiCaprio, that's who. Back when he was a Teen Beat heartthrob, Leo killed us (and himself!) dead as the lusty Romeo Montague in Baz's "Romeo + Juliet"—and now, he's doing it again as Gatsby. So when we caught up with "The Great Gatsby" director on the red carpet at the film's premiere, we had to ask: Was there anything different about working with Leo this second time around?
Baz's answer: "He was a gifted boy then, and now he's a man."
(No kidding! ...Said every woman, ever.)
We've already had "Sex and the City" a whopping two times on the big screen, but according to star Sarah Jessica Parker, the franchise might be up for one more roll in the hay: At a recent event promoting her new digital series, "City Ballet," SJP admitted to Extra that she thinks there's still enough juice left in the Carrie Bradshaw narrative to squeeze out a third film.
"I've been saying...there is one story left to tell," she said. "If it's, in fact, the right time and the right place that maybe we should tell it. It would be wonderful. It’s fun to ponder."
Why, yes! Yes, it is. So, let's ponder together: Is a third "Sex and the City" movie something we want? Should Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha be reunited one last time? Or do we all need to just let it die, already, and get our urban sex comedy fix somewhere else? What do you think?
