In what appears to be a candid moment caught on tape, watch Taylor Swift stick out her tongue in response to seeing her good friend Selena Gomez getting cosy with Justin Bieber backstage at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas yesterday. Selena and Justin reportedly reunited in Vegas before the show, and while they weren't shown sitting together at the event, they were caught in this sweet embrace backstage. So check out the GIF and tell us what you think. Was Taylor Swift caught making an actual "ew" face about Selena and Justin — OMG yes or LOL no?
Justin Bieber took the stage multiple times at Monday's Billboard Music Awards — but fans may remember one appearance in particular. Justin got in front of the microphone to accept his milestone award, which was one of two that he picked up, and declared:
"I'm 19 years old, I think I'm doing a pretty good job. I really just want to say it should be about the music, the craft. This is not a gimmick. I'm an artist and I should be taken seriously and all this other bull should not be spoken of."
His words were presumably in response to the recent controversy surrounding the star, including his tweet about Anne Frank, the cancellation of an Oman concert, his attempt to illegally bring a pet monkey into Germany, and his relationship status with Selena Gomez. The crowd responded with a mix of cheers and boos, with the boos apparently much louder than what can be heard in the video. Watch the clip and tell us — do you think the backlash was understandable or totally unnecessary?
The 2013 Billboard Music Awards, which were hosted by Tracy Morgan, took over the MGM Grand in Las Vegas today! The stars hit the red carpet to kick off proceedings and then made their way inside to get the fun started. Bruno Mars stuck to his usual suited up look in red ensemble to open the show while Carly Rae Jepsen, who won top digital song and two other honours, debuted hair of the same hue when she took the microphone to announce Icona Pop's performance of "I Love It." Shania Twain handed out the first statue of the event to Nicki Minaj, who won top rap artist, while Selena Gomez took the stage to perform "Come & Get It." Tracy had a little fun in front of the audience by challenging Psy to a dance off while Macklemore and Ryan Lewis teamed up to sing their top rap song, "Thrift Shop."
Taylor Swift, who picked up six awards before the show even started and two more, including artist of the year, during the broadcast, was another of the show's performers, belting out "22" after walking the carpet in a bright blue Zuhair Murad dress. Other big winners included Rihanna and Gotye, each with four trophies, as well as Justin Bieber with the milestone award.
Miguel attempted a daring jump over a pit of fans at today's Billboard Music Awards and unfortunately it did not all go as planned. The sexy singer collided with a couple female fans as he landed back onto stage. Check out a Vine of the incident (to get the sound to play, un-mute in the upper left hand corner) below. The woman he landed on seemed to walk away unscathed, but certainly must have been a little bit dazed after the unplanned up close and personal moment with the "Adorn" singer. Miguel later tweeted,"got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay." Keep reading to see how it unfolded.
After her daring punk look at the Met Gala earlier this month, Madonna made another fashion statement at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas today. She skipped the red carpet and made her racy debut on stage in a black fishnet dress and a fur bomber jacket. Madonna was honoured with the top touring artist award, which was presented to her by will.i.am. She shared her gratitude for her fans saying, "Thank you for supporting me for three decades. Without you I wouldn't be here."
Miley Cyrus followed up one sultry black and white jumpsuit with another, opting for this intricate Balmain look at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas today. Miley's engagement ring was very much on, as it has been recently, which hopefully implies that any rocky period between her and Liam Hemsworth is over. Liam, meanwhile, is promoting Catching Fire at the Cannes Film Festival alongside his co-stars Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin.
Taylor Swift's Billboard Music Awards is already off to a great start — she racked up six wins before the show thanks to a pre-telecast announcement of a handful of categories. Taylor picked a blue Zuhair Murad mini dress to hit the red carpet before taking her seat alongside BFF Selena Gomez and her on-again off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber inside. Taylor's latest single "22" is currently tearing up the charts as she travels on her world tour, though she was able to take time off recently to attend the Met Gala and film a guest starring role on the New Girl season finale.

Selena made headlines last week when speculation arose that she would possibly be seated next to her on-again and off-again beau, Justin Bieber, in the audience during the show. The rumours gathered steam as reports suggested that the pair reunited in Las Vegas ahead of the big award show. Selena and Justin reportedly got cosy at Cirque du Soleil's Love show last night.
