It is easy to forget that in among all the fights, the feuds and the egos, Sunday's MTV Vma ceremony also included some awards. Below, our Top 10 fun facts and figures about this year's winners (and losers) of the Video Music Awards. -Break- What did you think of the MTV VMAs? Dish the highs and lows of these awards here 1. Taylor Swift won Video of the Year for "Bad Blood" on just her second nomination. It took Justin Timberlake till his fifth try before he won for "Mirrors" in 2013. 2. Women have won seven of the last eight Video of the Year races; Timberlake broke that streak in 2013. 3. With nine nominations, Swift had the potential to break the record set by Lady Gaga in 2010 for most wins (8) in one night by a female artist. However, she only prevailed in four of her races. Swift also claimed Best Collaboration for "Bad Blood »
Even by Vma standards, the ads that appeared in advance of the 2015 show were unsettling: psychedelic ooze pouring out of Miley Cyrus' mouth and eyes. And sure enough, Sunday night's show was like a bad trip: entertaining at times, sure, but surreal — Women beefed! Men wept! — confusing and frustrating. Naturally, all VMAs are judged by the ones that came before. The best either had legendary performances — Madonna in 1984, Nirvana in 1992, Eminem in 2001, Lady Gaga in 2009 — or legendary moments (no need to recount them here). The worst were simply forgettable. (Remember the year that Lou Reed

If you feel a cadaverous, culinary hole in your heart where Hannibal used to be, American Horror Story will try to fill you up: The first hour of Hotel will feature a serial killer dinner party hosted by Aileen Wurnos (Lily Rabe), Entertainment Weekly reports. As Ryan Murphy puts it: "The biggest serial killers of all time all come to the hotel. Gacey. Aileen. John Lowe’s invited to a devil’s night dinner. He thinks someone is pulling a huge prank on him. It’s the biggest serial killers of all time in a room with him and he has to figure who is trying to make him lose his mind." There will also be a "hipster" couple who are "horrified they can’t get their artisanal cheese." Maybe Lady Gaga will show up in her meat outfit and make this a meat-dress and cheese party. »

It's almost Vma time! The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards air tonight, meaning we're in for some crazy celebrity fashion, wild antics and a ton of musical guests -- and we're taking a trip down memory lane with some of the wildest fashions from the show's vibrant history. Back in 2002, Xtina was at the height of her "Dirrty" days and showed up to the red carpet revealing a whole lot of skin! The singer donned a micro mini skirt and flaunted some major underboob in a tiny criss-crossed halter top! Always a risk-taker, Lady Gaga took one of her biggest fashion risks of all time at the 2010 show, where she donned a dress made entirely out of raw beef. The ensemble, designed by Franc Fernandez, understandably got Gaga in some hot water with animal rights groups. And, who can forget Lil' Kim's infamous 1999 look, that left one of her breasts nearly exposed. »

Taylor Swift enters Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards with nine nominations, and according to the combined predictions of our Editors, Users and Top 24 Users (those two dozen folks who did the best predicting last year's VMAs), she'll win a whopping eight of them. No artist has won that many since Lady Gaga swept with "Bad Romance" in 2010; in fact, that was the most VMAs ever won by a female artist in a single night (Peter Gabriel won 10 back in 1987 while a-ha earned eight in 1986). Are we overestimating Swift, or could she even make a clean sweep of all nine races? (Click here to view our complete predictions by category.) -Break- New Macklemore & Ryan Lewis video 'Downtown': Will it be a Vma & Grammy winner? The lion's share of her bids are for "Bad Blood," featuring Kendrick Lamar. That video is expected to prevail in all seven of its races: Video of the Year, »
Undercooked hamburger dresses and purple pasties aside (ahem, Lady Gaga and Lil' Kim), there are a handful of styles from VMAs past that turned heads for the right reasons. Chief among them, Selena Gomez delivered her usual jaw-dropping style with a sizzling twist, serving up this exposed-bodice Atelier Versace number at the 2013 show. Adorned with glistening embellishments and an up-to-there side slit, the ensemble juxtaposed sex appeal with slick sophistication, making for one unbeatable look. At last year's fête, Jennifer Lopez practically ignited the red carpet with a glittering cutout Charbel Zoe Couture gown. The look fit seamlessly with J.Lo's ultra-hot style motif and—of »

Ryan Murphy will be honored at amfAR’s sixth annual Inspiration Gala, to be held Oct. 29 at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.
The “American Horror Story” creator will be feted with the Award of Inspiration, in recognition of his achievement in film and television and his commitment to the fight against AIDS. Among his many projects, Murphy also exec produced HBO’s “The Normal Heart,” an adaptation of Larry Kramer’s play depicting the AIDS crisis in 1980s New York.
“Everything about it was very personal for me,” he told Variety about making the movie. “I had lost a lot of friends growing up. I was of the generation that was coming of age when AIDS struck, so I also felt it was such a seminal piece of work that I wanted to get it right.”
Gwyneth Paltrow will be back to host the benefit, which raises money for AIDS research. »

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Murphy discussed the possibility of releasing not just the traditional fall season of the show, but an additional season in the spring. Yes, that's right -- there could be Two seasons of "Ahs" waiting for fans in 2016.
It's not a done deal yet, though Murphy sounds pretty excited about the prospect. As he tells EW, the "Ahs" writers room is already divided in two, with one of the groups already hard at work on the prospective double season plan -- which, of course, Murphy says will stand out from previous iterations of the show.
"We're doing something that we've never done before on the show where we're doing two different groups of writers rooms. »

Speaking about the upcoming fifth season "American Horror Story: Hotel," Murphy tells EW that right now he and his team of writers are considering whether to do two seasons of the show a year - one in the second and one in its usual fourth quarter. He tells the mag:
"Next year we might do a fall American Horror Story and a spring. We have to decide. We're doing something that we've never done before on the show where we're doing two different groups of writers rooms. Some of our writers will be bouncing around but a whole different group coming in late August. The next thing we're crafting up is very, very different than this. Not smaller. But just not opulent. More rogue and more dark. »

One Direction have won MTV's Hottest Summer Superstar Award for the third consecutive year. The four-piece boyband - featuring Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson - amassed a total of 94,291,338 votes from members of the public to be crowned the winners of the online poll. After being announced as the winners, they said: ''Hi everybody, thank you so much for voting us in MTV Hottest, we won Woo.'' The total number of votes doubled compared to 2014's competition, with 635,824,505 votes being cast in total by fans in an effort to support their favourite acts. One Direction - who released their first single since Zayn Malik left the band, 'Drag Me Down', last month - were neck-and-neck with Justin Bieber for the majority of the poll, with fierce competition also coming from Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Demi Lovato and 5 Seconds of Summer. Despite the fact it is the »
It’s a role she can really sink her teeth into! A source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that Lady Gaga will play a several-hundred-year-old bloodsucker in FX’s American Horror Story: Hotel. "Her character is the hotel owner and the mother of 10 identical vampires who are 8 years old," explains a show insider. “They’re played by children and are very creepy!” Show creator Ryan Murphy has said these aren't your typical bloodthirsty fiends, though — so don't expect Robert Pattinson in Twilight, or even old-school Dracula.

The Oscars, the MTV VMAs are not. Elegant gowns are few and far between, and very few dresses edge over into sophisticated territory. Really, the VMAs red carpet is something like a show in and of itself—a majority of the looks from any given year are downright bizarre, but we'll give 'em this—they're unforgettable. Because who could remove the image of Amber Roses' naked dress from their minds? And while this Miley Cyrus ensemble fell short for obvious reasons, it hardly counts as her riskiest look ever (we're waiting for this year's show for that). Also on the worst dressed—yet most iconic—grounds are Lady Gaga in her infamous Franc Fernandez raw meat dress »
It's scary how much information we're getting about American Horror Story: Hotel this week. (See what I did there?) The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly features a ton of pictures of the new season, plus they revealed more information than ever about the plot. Star Lady Gaga has been tweeting out pictures from her photo shoot, and one in particular unveils a shocking detail about her character: the Countess is a mother! We are family. Meet my magical children. Hotel #Ahs pic.twitter.com/t3FO9j1NHJ — Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 27, 2015 That's right, Lady Gaga's character has her own little monsters. We knew the Countess drinks blood (though Murphy doesn't love the term "vampire"), and she has been in a sexy longterm relationship with Donovan (Matt Bomer), but this is the first time we're hearing about her bloodthirsty spawn. They're already terrifying. Related Stories: Ryan Murphy Confirms Jessica Lange »
Well, well, well. It appears Jessica Lange hasn't washed her hands clean of American Horror Story just yet. In addition to revealing a ton of new information about Hotel and the confirmation that season one's Murder House will appear on Hotel, the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly also contains a quote from Ryan Murphy about the (former) empress of his FX series. Lange, who has two Emmys and a Golden Globe for her performances on the show, announced her departure from American Horror Story at PaleyFest in March. Murphy talked about her decision to leave during the show's Summer TCA panel, but this is the first time he's confirmed her return. Here's the direct quote: "I've been talking to her. It's always possible. I'm trying to deal with her play schedule. Jessica is always about the character. She'll be back - she's not gone forever. But that's the fun and »
Hot on the heels of unleashing their American Horror Story: Hotel photos yesterday, EW is back with a new batch (see below) focused on Lady Gaga as The Countess, "a glamorous but deadly creature who sustains on a healthy diet of sex and blood." One photo in particular that stands out shows The Countess sitting next to three blood-slurping children, who The Countess has "kidnapped / adopted."
With popularity for FX's American Horror Story continuing to rise, showrunner Ryan Murphy told EW that airing two seasons—one in the fall and one in the spring—in the timespan of one year in the near future (beginning in 2016) could possibly happen.

Taylor Swift will clean up at the MTV Video Music Awards according to our predictions, and that includes Best Female Video, which she has won twice before. A third victory would tie her with Madonna as the all-time biggest winner in this category. But to reach that milestone, she'll have to overcome strong challenges from Nicki Minaj and Beyonce. -Break- Can Ed Sheeran upset Bruno Mars in Vma contest for Best Male Video? Swift is nominated in this race for "Blank Space" and not the video that earned her the bulk of her nominations this year, "Bad Blood," which is up for Video of the Year. Swift previously won this category for "You Belong with Me" (2009) and "I Knew You Were Trouble" (2013) and has only lost it once, to Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" in 2010. Given the blockbuster success of Swift's album "1989" and her devoted fan base, is she unbeatable here? »

Lady Gaga made quite an impression when she checked into "American Horror Story: Hotel." In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, show creator Ryan Murphy describes what the Mother Monster was wearing when she came to set. "She showed up, and she was wearing diamond pasties, a Band-Aid on her boo-ha, heels and a black veil that Alexander McQueen made for her on the day before his death," he tells the mag. "Then the crew gasped in delight, and we were off!" In fact, the singer's casting came about in a rather unconventional way after she wrote Murphy herself, asking if he'd ever consider using her in the show. He said "Yes" and the rest is history. "I was at a construction site and my phone rang. I didn’t recognize the number. [I answer and] I hear ‘Please hold for Gaga.’ I think ‘Bad Romance’ was playing [while I was on hold]," he explains. "Then she got on the phone. »
