Spotted: Leighton Meester Gets Up In The Club

30 December 2009 10:13 AM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

Every day a multitude of stars wanders through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

It's freezing cold here in New York, so anybody who has the wherewithal to spend the winter months in warm weather climates has the right idea. Even though Leighton Meester makes her living on "Gossip Girl" (which films on location in Manhattan), she used her time off from the show to head to Miami Beach for the opening of Klutch, a new nightclub. That dress she is wearing wouldn't fly in the arctic tundra that is NYC right now, but the Florida heat is treating her quite nicely. Meester has plenty to celebrate, as she gave her music career a healthy kickstart with »

Is Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s Daughter Willow Too Young For Rihanna’s Hairdo?

14 December 2009 2:28 PM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

She’s only 9, but the youngest Smith turned up at the Nobel Peace Prize Awards in Norway, December 11, 2009 looking like Rihanna’s mini-me!

Woah there little Willow! You cut your hair! You sure have grown up since you appeared in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl last year!

Willow Smith, 9, joined her parents Will and Jada Pinkett Smith as well as her brother Jayden, 11, in Oslo, Norway to witness President Barack Obama ’s Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech and the youngest Smith showed up ready to party like a rock star … Rihanna, that is!

Willow wore her hair half shaved with the other half in a chin-length asymmetrical “comb over” that was almost identical to the Rated R singer’s current blond cut!  She even helped host and perform in a Nobel Peace Prize concert after the ceremony with her family.  Willow started acting in back in 2007 when she »

Willow Smith and brother Jaden attend hair-raising Nobel Peace Prize Concert

11 December 2009 11:30 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

The Smith family were all smiles at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert on Friday (Dec. 11) night. Per usual, superstar daddy Will and wife Jada Pinkett Smith were impeccably dressed for the fancy occasion. As were their children: son Jaden, 11, and daughter Willow, 9.

But, we're not here to talk about their clothes. We're here to talk about their hair.

Rihanna is obviously a fashion icon for Willow, who sports a similar style -- stick straight bob on one side, razor-short on the other. All the better to show that young Willow definitely inherited her father's ears.

Meanwhile, we're in complete and utter awe of brother Jaden's 'fro that is seriously so wide that it extends to the end of his shoulders. And is it just us or does the Fresh Prince's fresh prince look like he's about two weeks from being ready for his first shave?

Actually, it's probably a good »

The Punch Heard Around The "Shore"!!!

10 December 2009 8:26 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Cast of MTV's "Jersey Shore"

Not long after my original post about Jersey Shore hit the web, I was bitch-smacked by Et's report on cast member Nicole (Snookie) being punched in the face by a random guy in the club. Jersey Shore just keeps getting wilder and wilder! But according to Et, Nicole (21) thought that it was good for the producers of Jersey Shore to show the footage, because it was "reality". Now, as much as I denounce reality from reality shows, Nicole pretty much was right about that one.

Here's a quick clip of the punch heard around the Jersey Shore.

Wild huh? But this scene was not shown, despite reports saying that it was to air tonight. Since Italian Americans are offended and disgusted by the show's stereotypical nature, I wonder if battered women will line up to protest for Jersey Shore to be pulled from TV. In recent news, »

Well, here you go. • Rihanna has a new tattoo. It says "Never a failure, always a lesson," but backwards.

Jt, John, Taylor and Rihanna All Come Out For Music and Vevo

9 December 2009 6:00 AM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

Some of the biggest stars of the music world from all different genres came together in NYC last night to celebrate the launch of Vevo. Justin Timberlake posed with John Mayer, who recently shared his ideas on how to get away with secret texts. Taylor Swift posed in her Lbd while Taylor Lautner was elsewhere in the city preparing to host SNL and releasing the first cute promo. Rihanna smiled big after a publicly trying year and perhaps could give some advice to Adam Lambert who has had his share of controversy, though he's been asked to perform on the finale of Sytycd. Meanwhile, Nick and Mariah just looked smitten as usual. There was also time for some performances during the party including Bono and Lady Gaga who was a little more toned down than when she met Queen Elizabeth in London the night before.

Taylor Lautner Gears Up for 'SNL' With New Promo Video

8 December 2009 11:27 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Taylor Lautner will make his debut on "Saturday Night Live" this coming Saturday, December 12, and NBC has released a video promoting his first time hosting gig. The short promo sees the depicter of shape-shifter Jacob Black in "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" joined by show regular Kristen Wiig.

While the actor who is romantically linked to country singer Taylor Swift gets to the basic information for the show's upcoming episode, Wiig distracts him by sharing her past. Making a reference at his part in the "Twilight Saga" series, the "Whip It!" actress jokes she used to think that she is a werewolf.

On the December 12 edition of "Saturday Night Live", Taylor Lautner will be joined by musical guest Bon Jovi. His appearance on the show comes a week after "Gossip Girl" star Blake Lively hosted the December 5 episode which had Rihanna as musical guest, and a week before James Franco »

The cast of Gossip Girl including Serena and Blair was on set in their typically stylish Winter wear around NYC yesterday. Last night's episode was also filled with the usual drama - check out Buzz's Omg moments here - to go along with the cute clothes. Gadgets played a big role as usual, but were you paying attention? Blake Lively stepped out of the Upper East Side over the weekend to host SNL where she lampooned her own show with a Gossip Girl Staten Island spoof, though one of our favorite sketches was Rihanna's digital short.
