Talk about nailing it! Kate Hudson, Taraji P. Henson, and Ke$ha added creative elements to their manicures recently, with Hudson sporting a pink nail with a silver tip, and Henson lacquering up in a chic black and white print. However, Ke$ha’s manicure proved to be the most eye-catching design we’ve seen yet. The singer topped off her optical pattern by adding strips of false lashes to her ring finger. Click the photo to take a closer look at each design.
Ke$ha is 25, and she already has a memoir! Available today, My Crazy Beautiful Life (Simon & Schuster, $23) tells the story of how she became the glitter-covered wild-child figure she is today. “I wanted to make a scrapbook for my fans, and share this crazy story with the people who have made it all possible,” she told InStyle.com. In turn, the 192 pages show a behind-the-scenes look at what makes the at-times risque singer (who just this morning performed on the Today show) “tik-tok,” with a mix of backstage photography and first-person anecdotes. It also shows her growth as a woman. “I try to keep everyone on their toes, but I’m certainly embracing a bit more femininity in my style,” she told InStyle.com. That said, she’s not quieting her wild ways any time soon—her current style icon is Willy Wonka, and she says she normally takes “an entire semi just full of glitter” on tour with her. Well, she certainly keeps it interesting! Click here to pick up her book, available starting today, and keep an eye out for her new albume Warrior, in stores December 4th.

The Video Music Awards were last night on MTV! We already saw what everyone wore on the (first-ever!) double-decker red carpet, and we found out who is going to be hosting House of Style when it comes back October 9, but that doesn’t begin to cover all the pop-culture details of the night. We were watching as it all unfolded live, and we’ve picked the top five most memorable moments. Peek through the gallery below to find out what had us talking the next day.
The summer heat is still going strong, and celebrities have been keeping cool by tying their hair back in oversize braids! Everyone from Demi Moore to Rihanna has been working long Rapunzel locks on and off the red carpet, and we can’t get enough of the trend. Click “See the Photos” to check out our favorite oversize braids, and tell us, would you wear one?
Americans have the Grammys and the VMAs. Across the pond? Music’s biggest night is the MTV European Music Awards. This Saturday in Madrid, stars like Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Shakira were just a few of the famous faces to grace the EMAs and later sing their hearts out. Lady Gaga, while not in attendance, also picked up three big awards: Best Pop Act, Best Female Artist, Best Song. Click through our gallery to see all the hottest performers in their wild outfits!
While some stars opted for simple, pretty dresses at last night’s Video Music Awards, many others kept the tradition of shocking style moments alive. Nicki Minaj rocked out in tons of brightly colored spandex, Ke$ha sourced her dress material (garbage bags) from Home Depot, Lady Gaga’s final outfit (which she donned to accept Video of the Year) was a dress made of meat(!) courtesy of designer Franc Fernandez, Cher channeled her “Turn Back Time” days in a sheer body stocking and Rihanna sported a fiery bob complete with headdress while performing on-stage with Eminem. Take the poll after the jump, then tell us whose outfit you liked best in the comments section below! More
