The Shrine Auditorium in LA was filled with glamorous women for VH1 Divas Live today. Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato were among the performers and made their entrances in black ensembles, which proved to be the colour of the day — Stacy Keibler, Elisha Cuthbert, Ciara and Glee’s Amber Riley were among those dressed in black. Jenna Dewan-Tatum tweeted before her arrival, “I am in full fairy mood tonight,” and stood out in an ethereal baby blue gown complete with a jewelled headpiece. Another standout was Aussie musician DJ Havana Brown, who wore a neon yellow version of the self-designed low-cut dress she wore to the ARIA Awards over two weeks ago. This year’s VH1 Divas Live was hosted by American Idol alum Adam Lambert and included performances from Ciara, Kelly Rowland, Jordin Sparks and Pitbull.
After two seasons occupying the main chair on American Idol, it's rumoured that Jennifer Lopez may be parting ways with the competition show. This week, news hit that the producers are considering Adam Lambert to take J Lo's place. No offense to Idol veteran Lambert, but as a devoted fan, I've come up with a few suggestions of my own. Take a look through the industry heavyweights I'd like to see take up residence between Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson, and let me know who your pick is!
Stars came out to attend Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party at the Beverly Hilton in LA last night despite the tragic news of Whitney Houston's death yesterday afternoon. Clive, who started Whitney's career and remained close to the singer, asked that guests observe a moment of silence for Whitney during the event and shared, "She loved music and loved this night that celebrated music. Whitney would have asked that the music go on. And her family said the show should go on." Clive was just one of many celebrities who commented on Whitney's death yesterday, including Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey.
Britney Spears and her fiancé, Jason Trawick, got the annual celebration going, as did Kim Kardashian and Richard Branson, who was honoured at the gala. Jennifer Lopez, Diana Ross, Tom Hanks and others walked the carpet while Diddy, Miranda Lambert, Alicia Keys, and more took the stage during the event. The musical fun is just getting started since the main event, the Grammy Awards, will take place later today with Jennifer Hudson expected to sing a tribute to Whitney.
The 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards were held in Belfast today, bringing together some of the world’s biggest music acts. Selena Gomez hosted the show, and in true host fashion she had multiple costume changes and even performed with her band The Scene. The honours were decided by music fans, with more than 158 million votes tallied to decide the winners of the silver globe trophies. Lady Gaga’s little monsters certainly had pulling power, as before the show even started she was handed the Biggest Fans award. Then, as the announcements took place on stage, she also took home Best Song and Best Video for “Born This Way.” Katy Perry won the show’s first award for Best Live, and she said, “This is probably my favourite award because my fans mean so much to me.” She went on to say how it took commitment for people to attend concerts, as opposed to downloading music. The night had some interesting turns, such as an Irish streaker and Lady Gaga’s crazy (as usual) choice of attire. Other big winners on the night included Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and Eminem, while show-stopping performances came from world class acts like Coldplay, who opened, LMFAO, David Guetta with Taio Cruz, Ludacris and Jessie J, and Global Icon winners Queen, who closed the show with the help of Adam Lambert.
The MTV EMAs air on MTV Australia at 3 p.m.
Celebrities who do their bit to give back to the community were recognised for their work at the VH1 Do Something Awards held at the Hollywood Palladium in LA today. The event airs on VH1 in the US on Thursday, and some of the recipients of the winged sneaker trophies include Justin Bieber, David Beckham, Will Ferrell and Olivia Wilde. Glee’s Jane Lynch returned to host the show for a second year, which is great prep for her Emmys hosting gig in September. The star-studded presenters included Kristen Bell, Jon Cryer, Olivia Munn, David Spade, Nick Cannon, Adam Lambert and Zachary Levi, while performers who rocked the stage were Demi Lovato, OneRepublic (featuring B.o.B) and Foster the People.
Kate Hudson indulged her love of performing on Sunday night at a bash thrown by the brand Chrome Hearts for Scissor Sisters star Jake Shears! She was joined by another singer, Fergie, at the event, along with Josh Duhamel, Adam Lambert, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber — the bash doubled as a birthday celebration for Fergie as she turned 36 on the weekend. Kate, who's expecting a child with Muse front man Matthew Bellamy, has been all about her singing adventures recently with a stop by a taping of American Idol. She's gearing up for the release of her new movie Something Borrowed, and she rested up for the upcoming press tour by fitting a bikini-filled Mexican vacation into her itinerary last month.
It’s not just Aussies doing their best to support those affected by the flash floods that have been devastating Queensland. The disaster has caught the attention of A-listers as well, who have shown their support by tweeting to their legions of followers on Twitter. The long list of celebrities sending their thoughts and prayers includes Justin Bieber, Jessica Alba, Glee stars Chris Colfer and Amber Riley, Cat Deeley, Nicky Hilton, Eric Stonestreet, Zooey Deschanel and Adam Lambert, while on the local front Dannii Minogue, Ricki-Lee Coulter, Lara Bingle, Natalie Imbruglia, Erin McNaught, Megan Gale and Alex Perry (who also donated a $2,000 prize to a Sydney fundraiser) have pledged their support for the efforts to raise funds for the flood victims. Twitter is just one of the many ways celebs have contributed — tennis star Andy Roddick donated $10,000 and on Sunday night Channel Nine hosted a live telethon appeal that raised more than $10 million.

This year's LA GLAAD Awards took place on Saturday night, with stars like Drew Barrymore and Glee's Dianna Agron and Cory Monteith stepping out for the occasion. New parents Rebecca Gayheart and Eric Dane left baby Billie at home for one of their first red carpet outings since their daughter's birth last month. Drew Barrymore had her own guy, Justin Long, to cuddle up with backstage after accepting the night's Vanguard Award for her allegiance to the gay community. Recent rumours suggested that the two had called it quits, but the lovebirds are apparently going strong. The cast of Glee was present to accept their award for best comedy and Jane Lynch even gave the audience another peek at her Vogue-ing skills! Adam Lambert was there to perform for the crowd despite his always busy schedule, which last week included mentoring the contestants on American Idol.
