Britney Spears Approves of Katy Perry's Denim Impression of Her

When Katy Perry showed up with Riff Raff at the MTV VMAs on Sunday in head-to-toe denim, she said that she was paying homage to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's matching denim outfits at the 2001 VMAs.  But it turns out she was really just accepting a challenge that Britney had laid down...and Brit approved.

John Mayer Takes Ice Bucket Challenge On Behalf of Musician with ALS

John Mayer posted a touching response to being nominated for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Sunday. The singer was nominated by a musician named Jason Becker, who, as Mayer explained, is suffering from ALS and can no longer play the guitar because of the disease. In his YouTube video, Mayer strummed along to one of Becker’s guitar recordings before going under the bucket. He included a link to Becker’s website in his post.

Sean, 26, was spotted backstage at the 2014 MTV VMAs holding hands with none other than Ariana Grande, 21. It had been reported the two were spending time together, but this kind of seals the deal. Sean was wearing a denim button-down over a white T-shirt, while Grande was wearing a silver dress. They looked very comfortable. Ariana also just had a breakup of her own this year: she split with…

If you're an Iggy Azalea fan, you probably know that her birth name is Amethyst Amelia Kelly, and she got her stage name from her dog, Iggy, and Azalea from the street her mom lived on.  But it turns out the story is a bit more complicated than that. Iggy's the first artist to be featured on the new VEVO series A.K.A, where stars explain how they got their wacky stage names.  In the segment, Iggy explains that the evolution of her stage name is actually a "two-part saga."  First, the "Iggy" part.  Yes, it came from her Australian cattle…

They may be “consciously uncoupled,” but Chris Martin gladly accepted ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow’s nomination for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The Coldplay frontman and fashion designer pal Stella McCartney – who was also nominated by Paltrow – took the plunge together. “I’m a fashion designer, I don’t get wet,” McCartney says before someone drenches them from above.

Taylor Swift Says Lena Dunham Helped Her Embrace Feminism

Lena Dunham apparently taught Taylor Swift a thing or two about being a feminist. In a new interview with The Guardian, the “Shake It Off” singer credited the Girls star with educating her on what feminism really means. "As a teenager, I didn't understand that saying you're a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities," the 24-year-old said. "What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men." But she added that by becoming friends with Dunham and seeing “why she believes…
