Justin Bieber, Megan Thee Stallion & Billie Eilish Lead 2021 MTV VMA Nominations: See Full List Of Nominees


The MTV Video Music Awards just announced this year’s nominees, with Justin Bieber leading a pack. Check out who got nominated – from Olivia Rodrigo to Lil Nas X to BTS!

It’s time to cue up “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” because the MTV Video Music Awards are now one month away from taking over the Barclays Center. On Sept. 12, MTV will celebrate music’s biggest and brightest – but you can’t have an awards show without any nominees. Today (Aug. 11), MTV unveiled this year’s slate of contenders, featuring “artists whose cultural impact and work over the past year has transformed the music industry and created global conversation.” At the top of the list with the most nominations – 7 in total – is Justin Bieber. He’s followed by Megan Thee Stallion, who netted six VMA nominations, including Artist of the Year, and a handful of others for “Wap,” her collab with Cardi B.

Billie Eilish, BTS, Doja Cat, Drake, Lil Nas X, and Olivia Rodrigo are tied with five nominations. Olivia scored a Best New Artist nod, a category that also features Saweetie – check out her EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife here – as well as 24kGoldn, Giveon, Polo G, and The Kid LAROI, the latter of which currently has the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100. As for performers at this year’s show, fans will have to wait a little longer to see who will grace the stage at this year’s event. Last year featured acts performing all around the five boroughs (and Lady Gaga’s seemingly endless supply of facemasks). Who will be the most-talked-about performance once the 2021 VMAs are all said and done?

Starting today, fans can vote across 14 gender-neutral categories, including “Video of the Year,” “Artist of the Year,” “Best Collaboration” and more by visiting vma.mtv.com through Friday, September 3, 2021, with the vote for “Best New Artist” remaining active up into the show’s airing on Sept. 12. Nominations for “Best Group” and “Song of the Summer” will be announced later.

Hailie Jade Reveals Makeup-Free Face & Fans Can’t Believe How Much She Looks Like Dad Eminem

Hailie Jade looked gorgeous when she went completely makeup-free in a new selfie & she looks exactly like her dad, Eminem.

Everyone knows that Hailie Jade, 25, looks just like her dad, Eminem, 48, but in a recent selfie she posted, Hailie is the spitting image of him. Hailie posted a video to her Instagram where she started out completely makeup-free with her hair up in a bun, away from her face. The resemblance to her dad in the beginning of the video is uncanny and then at the end, she shows off her face with full glam, still looking just like him.

Fans immediately rushed to the comments section gushing about how much she looks like Eminem and one person wrote, “Mini Em, it’s so crazy.” Meanwhile, someone else commented, “All I see is em with makeup. Unfortunately I can’t unsee it. Lol.” Other comments from fans who were mindblown included, “you look like your father so much without makeup,” “Wowww you look like your father,” and even, “It’s like I’m looking at a young blond shady.”

Of course, Hailie looks gorgeous with and without makeup but we just can’t believe how much she looks like her famous father without makeup.

Hailie is always posting fun videos and photos on Instagram and her outfits and glam are always on point. Just the other day she posted a mirror selfie rocking a plaid bucket hat with a sleeveless white knit vest and high-waisted jeans. Her makeup was done naturally and her complexion looked flawless as she added a glossy orange lip and strong brows. She captioned the photo, “hey!! look at this cute hat!!!”

Kendall Jenner


Kendall Jenner took to her Instagram story to share some eye-catching snapshots of her and boyfriend Devin Booker enjoying time under the sun, including a cheeky pic that showed off her stylish swimsuit.

Kendall Jenner, 25, showed off the fun summer’s end she is having with her boyfriend Devin Booker, 24, on Sept. 18. The model shared a few snapshots of her and the Phoenix Suns player to her Instagram story and it looked like they were having the time of their lives! In one piAlc, she is standing in front water and trees while wearing a floral thong bikini and letting her long damp hair down and in another, Devin is laying back and relaxing in the water while wearing white swim shorts.

Although it’s not exactly clear where Kendall and Devin were in the pics, the view was definitely gorgeous and seemed to be the perfect location for a little rest and relaxation. There was also a photo of a set of legs that were crossed while laying back, further proving the trip was all about taking in the moment.

Before Kendall’s latest getaway with Devin, she made headlines for having a busy week in New York City during New York Fashion Week. She attended the 2021 Met Gala and posed on the red carpet in a gorgeous bedazzled sheer gown that included a neck collar as her long locks were pulled up. She gave off a classic old Hollywood vibe with natural-toned makeup and the perfect poses as she stared into the cameras with a confident expression.

The beauty was also spotted hanging out with her mom Kris Jenner, 65, at the event and they happily enjoyed posing while Kendall helped tie her mom’s sneaker, which she wore with a long black dress, at one point after the red carpet portion of the night. The doting parent also had a cocktail in her hand and looked just as incredible as her second to youngest daughter.

When Kendall’s not attending lavish events and/or posing in eye-catching dresses, she’s doing other fun stuff like promoting her 818 tequila brand. She was seen signing a bottle of the liquor during an interaction with fans outside in New York last week. We can bet it was a thrilling moment for the successful star!

Pregnant Olivia Munn Cradles Her Dog On Her Baby Bump In Sweet New Photo

Olivia Munn


Olivia Munn flashed a bright smile as she hung out with her adorable pooch in a new promotional pic about ‘pet mental health,’ just over a week after John Mulaney confirmed they’re having a baby together.

Olivia Munn, 41, gave fans another glimpse of her baby bump with her latest Instagram pic. The actress was promoting her partnership with Petco for pet mental health in the caption of the snapshot and looked as happy as could be as she sat back and relaxed with her adorable pups. The mom-to-be, who is expecting her first child with comedian John Mulaney, 39, let her baby bump peek through in the pic as she wore a black top and black pants and cuddled one pooch while the other snuggled up against her.

The beauty also had her long dark locks down and a large window that showed off green trees was on the side of her.

“SO excited to be partnering with @Petco to spread the word about the importance of pet mental health! 🤍🐾,” Olivia’s caption for the pic read. “Our routines are changing and our pets need us. I took Petco’s free Well-Adjusted Dog seminar to help prepare my pups for these changes and encourage all pet parents to do the same. Frankie & Chance have helped me get through difficult times and now I’m doing the same for them. Sign up now at petco.com/mentalhealth! #ad #welladjustedpet.”

Olivia’s latest social media pic comes a week and a half after John confirmed that they are expecting their first child together during his appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers. “In the spring I went to Los Angeles and met and started to date a wonderful woman named Olivia,” he said while updating the fellow comedian on his life. “I got into this relationship that’s been really beautiful with someone incredible. . . and we’re having a baby together.”

Olivia and John were first romantically linked in May shortly after the news that he split from his wife of almost seven years following a stint in rehab. They were spotted on a lighthearted lunch date at Rick’s Drive In & Out in Los Angeles, CA and a source later told PEOPLE that things between them were going well. “They were having a great time during lunch, laughing and talking,” the insider told the outlet about the date. “They were really enjoying each other’s company.”
