Hello, World—Anthony here bringing you all the pop culture events that had us buzzing this past week.
The 20th annual MTV Europe Music Awards kicked off in Amsterdam over the weekend. The EMAs are just like the VMAs here in the States expect with more lights, drugs and European celebrities.
Stars such as Katy Perry, Eminem, The Wanted and Bruno Mars were all in attendance for the ceremony.
An award show in 2013 isn’t complete without Miley Cyrus on the guest list, so of course the former Disney star was there to stir things up yet again.
Cyrus was a performer and also a presenter at the award ceremony, but that wasn’t what got tongues wagging.
While accepting the award for Best Video, Cyrus proceeded to reach in her bag, pull out a joint and spark up on stage.
“I couldn’t fit this award in my bag, but I did find this,” Cyrus said, rooting around with her Chanel purse and pulling out something resembling a spliff. While not legal in Amsterdam, marijuana users can’t be prosecuted for possessing small amounts.
Shade Alert! Mariah Carey is once again coming for her former fellow American Idol judging panelist Nicki Minaj.
Carey was on Hot 97 this week and chatted with host Angie Martinez. The pals were rocking a mini-fan and drinking sparkling cider out of champagne flutes. It was pretty much like every other Mariah Carey interview – over the top and fabulous.
Carey started off bluntly when asked if she enjoyed her time on the reality singing competition: “Honestly, I hated it.”
Much of Carey’s disdain for the show came from the fact that she thought it was only going to be a three-judge panel. Her idea of the panel did not include Nicki Minaj.
“It was like Hell,” Minaj said. “It was like going to work everyday in Hell with Satan. Nah I’m just playing. It didn’t affect me that much.”
Carey had the expression on her face that she was kidding, but she really wasn’t. That kind of shade is something that divas such as Carey do very well. We’re still waiting on Nicki to respond.
