Conan O’Brien announced on his late-night TBS talk show Conan on March 4th that he will be hosting the MTV Movie Awards this year. O’Brien joked in a statement, "After eight years of intense negotiations, I am honored to announce I am hosting MTV’s second most prestigious awards show.”
He takes the torch from Rebel Wilson, who hosted last year. This is not O’Brien’s first time hosting an awards show; he previously hosted the Emmy Awards in 2002 and 2006 and co-hosted in 2003.
The MTV Europe Music Awards, better known as the EMA's, took place this past Sunday in Amsterdam. Besides, the amazing performances, live show antics, and list of winners, there is one thing one thing everyone is talking about. If you guessed the fashion, then you're right on the money.
Take a look at a recap of some of Joonbug's favorite and not so favorite looks from the red carpet, and throughout the evening.
FASHION RECAP: 2013 MTV EMA's

Rita wasant the only one on the carpet going Bold in Black. Check out some other hits and misses.
The 2013 MTV EMA’s proved to be an out of this world night full of awesome, gif-worthy moments, killer performances, and cheery celebs. Redfoo kept the space party pumping all night as the show’s host. He stripped off his suit and slipped into his most comfortable attire (a shiny, tiny speedo), and later in the show managed to stage dive into the crowd. Miley lit up a joint on stage. Will Ferrell made an appearance as the infamous Ron Burgundy and provided laughs and awkward backstage interviews with celebrities. Eminem took home the Global Icon Award and reminded us why he is a “rap god.” But the performances are what really made the night an unforgettable one.
Canadian trio, Keys N Krates, have premiered their amusing new video for "Dum Dee Dum" via MTV today(October 17). The video, directed by Slave Labour, finds the director visiting a rural Mennonite community and playing them the Keys N Krates single on a boombox for the first time. The simple Mennonites, unfamiliar with this sound, as well as the technology, sets the stage for a great video. The reactions are priceless, and this mockumentary piece becomes the must-watch video of the day.
With an MTVu Woodie Award already under their belts and a new album slated for release, "Phunky and phresh" four-piece The Lonely Biscuits are clearly destined for big things. We caught up with the band recently to get their thoughts on their writing process, their next big moves and why biscuits are the loneliest kind of snack.
So what is 'phunky and phresh music' exactly?
"Phunky" describes music with a fat groove and a good flow. So naturally, it makes you move when you listen to it. For us, its true - when we're playing a show, its almost impossible for us to stay still. "Phresh" I guess means keeping it fresh and new, since we kinda change up our style with each song and EP. But it's all still us, and it's all phunky and phresh.

N’SYNC was not the only band to rekindle their pop group flame--girl band Danity Kane also reunited last night at the VMAS. The ladies arrived at the awards in a chic black and white theme; it was apparent that the beautiful quintet was noticeably missing a fifth member, D. Woods.
The original Making the Band vixens, which includes Aubrey O'Dey, Shannon Bex , Dawn Richard , and Aundrea Fimbres , released new promo pics days before the award ceremony, sparking rumors of a possible new single.
