L.A.’s Nokia Theatre was the place to be last night for the 2013 American Music Awards, hosted by Pitbull.

In addition to all of the awards being handed out to One Direction, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and more, Rihanna’s mom, Monica Braithwaite, presented her with the first-ever icon award. The night featured several performances including JT, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, A Great Big World featuring Christina Aguilera, and Miley Cyrus, who closed out the show “Wrecking Ball.” She sounded good, but the confusion came with the huge CAT that appeared on the screen behind her, crying diamonds ‘a la’ the same was she does in her video for the song…and yes, it even stuck it’s tongue out at the end of the song.

Justin Timberlake kicked off awards with a win for favorite pop/rock male artist before taking home awards for soul/R&B artist and soul/R&B album categories.  He also had an awesome performance of “Drink You Away,” off his latest album “The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.”

Folks at the show seemed to be really into it, but couldn’t help but wonder where his wife, Jessica Biel was since she wasn’t at the show…



Speaking of Miley, she celebrated her 21st birthday over the weekend and bad news, her house got robbed! On the plus side, her dad Billy Ray Cyrus gave her a Can Am Spyder as a gift. The three-wheeled motorcycle costs $24,000.


The Daily Mirror claims Angelina Jolie gave Brad Pitt an $18 million island for his 50th birthday.. in the shape of a HEART. A source tells the paper the island is located 50 miles north of New York City and features two homes designed by Brad’s favorite architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Check out a virtual tour of the house below…


Over the weekend,  “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” was the #1 movie talking in $161.1 million, making it the biggest November movie debut ever. One of the stars of the movie, Josh Hutcherson, was the host of Saturday Night Live, with a pretty funny show. During the weekend update, the cast got in some  pretty funny jabs at Justin Bieber and Adam Levine of Maroon 5.


Adele recently bought a $150,000 Porsche Cayenne after getting her license. A source tells the Daily Mirror, “Since passing her test, driving has become one of Adele’s favorite activities and she loves to cruise around London. She could afford to buy any mega-expensive sports car but, now she’s a mum, safety and reliability are her priorities. Her car is a 4×4 and extremely safe but it’s also slick and luxurious. She’s decided to treat herself and has joked that it’s a Christmas present after she managed to pass her test.”
