Hailee Steinfeld and Taylor Swift are besties? Apparently! And it turns out "The Amazing Spider-Man" star Emma Stone introduced them.  "We met, oh my gosh, like three years ago through our mutual friend Emma Stone," Steinfeld  told E! on Wednesday at the Los Angeles premiere of her latest film, "Romeo and Juliet," at the Arclight Cinemas, where she was joined by the Grammy-winning singer.  Away from the spotlight, the celebrities are normal girls who " just love to kick back, listen to music, watch TV, bake, watch movies and all of that kind of stuff," Steinfeld previously told the site.  And, boy talk is like totally  required.

Key changes outnumbered costume changes during Ariana Grande's concert Monday night at Club Nokia, where the ascendant pop-soul singer (and star of Nickelodeon's “Sam & Cat”) touched down for the final date of her so-called Listening Sessions tour. It was a big night for Grande: Squinting up into the mezzanine at this packed downtown venue, she thanked her cast mates and various Nickelodeon executives for coming to the show; later, her manager appeared onstage to tell Grande that her debut album, “ Yours Truly ,” will enter this week's chart at No. 1. She received the news by doing her best Taylor Swift -- hand over open mouth, wide eyes beaming happy incredulity -- while her fans cheered proprietarily, gratified by their role in Grande's success.

Kanye West at the center of controversy? We're shocked. The hit maker, who recently joked of his “polarizing” infamy, has now taken it global and drawn the ire of the Human Rights Foundation for his performance at the wedding of the grandson of Kazakhstan's president, Nursultan Nazarbayev. The foundation said West's private performance Saturday, for which he was reportedly paid upward of $3 million, legitimized the human-rights violations of the nation's president. In a statement, foundation President Thor Halvorseen called Kazakhstan a “human-rights wasteland” TIMELINE: Summer's must see concerts “The regime crushes freedom of speech and association; someone like Kanye, who makes a living expressing his views, would find himself in a prison under Nazarbayev's rule,” the statement says.

Were the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, which aired live Sunday night from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the whitest VMAs in history -- or the blackest? The youngest or the oldest? The most exciting or the most embarrassing? Sure, you bet -- all of the above. The 30th edition of an annual production now (like MTV itself) only nominally about music videos, the VMAs this year kept rocketing between extremes, pushing buttons seemingly designed to stoke social-media buzz then retreating into the safety of assured showbiz professionalism.

Taylor Swift obviously doesn't keep things to herself. The "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer dropped the F-bomb at MTV's Video Music Awards on Sunday when her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles and One Direction band member took the stage to present the night's first award for best pop video. The band rambled about being British and the best fans being in New York, where the show took place this year. That's when the audience camera cut to Swift.

NEW YORK - For the first time in their 29-year history, the MTV Video Music Awards were broadcast live from Brooklyn, N.Y., on Sunday night, but as to whether the event showcased all the borough had to offer - well, you can fuggedaboutit. The setting - the shiny new Barclays Center arena in downtown Brooklyn - may have lent the awards a veneer of hip, but homegrown talent such as Jay Z was scarce among the evening's winners and performers. Instead, MTV offered up "California Gurl" Katy Perry boxing in front of the Brooklyn Bridge and doled out prizes to Justin Timberlake, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

What a train wreck of desperation the MTV Video Music Awards were Sunday night, right? I'm not going to continue to pile on Miley Cyrus. The girl is 20, lest we forget, and if we're not careful, she's going to end up like Lindsay Lohan. But her look--on the red carpet and onstage--just reinforced that the whole show was about bumping and grinding and butt jokes and bare midriffs and above all, trying too hard. Taylor Swift, poured into that navy blue Herve Leger column dress, had an unpleasant air of being above it all. So did her pal Selena Gomez, who looked like Swift's mean girl partner-in-crime, dressed in a navy blue Versace column gown.

Harry Styles has come to terms with the inevitable: Taylor Swift will likely write a breakup song about him. "It would be hypocritical for me to say she couldn't do it because everybody writes songs based on personal experience," the One Direction boy bander said in this week's issue of Us Weekly. "At least she's a great songwriter!" The pair split in January after a few months of dating. In March, Swift, 23, revealed that she had already penned a song about the British heartthrob: "I Knew You Were Trouble" to be exact.
