As we previously told you, Taylor Swift is set to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards for the first time since 2015, also receiving 10 nominations as well. Taylor threw a party to celebrate, and someome posted a video of her singing along to her song, “You Need to Calm Down.” Not long after the video surfaced the hashtag #DrunkTaylor started trending. Drunk Taylor even became a meme, and Taylor seems onboard with all of it. She tweeted, "Threw a party to celebrate with the people who made the ME! & YNTCD videos with me- and we had so much fun that ‘Drunk Taylor’ is trending on Twitter. CHEERS." We wonder if she felt the same way the next day.

Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou share a 10-year-old son, and while custody of Kenzo hasn’t been an issue before, they’re now working toward something more formal. Why now? Djimon claimed that Kimora wouldn’t let him see his son for Father’s Day. But sources close to the situation say that she doesn’t have a problem with him seeing the child. In fact, she encourages the whole family to come together for holidays and birthdays, but he rarely takes her up on the offer. Now, Djimon allegedly wants to take Kenzo to Africa for good, according to The Blast. When he asked to take his son to his home country, Kimora’s first ex-husband, Russell Simmons, told him he’d have to sign an agreement saying he would bring Kenzo back. He refused.

Kylie Jenner posted pictures from her 22nd birthday celebration on the luxury yacht she rented. On Saturday – her actual birthday – she took the boat to the Mediterranean off the coast of Italy. She posted a photo of the gift her baby daddy, Travis Scott, got her. As if it wasn’t enough that he filled her home with roses prior to her birthday, he also got her a diamond-encrusted pendant in the shaped of the Kylie Cosmetics dripping lips logo. The piece is rumored to be worth $375,000.

Well, now he’s taken to social media to give fans an update on how he’s doing. He said, "I knew walking across America was going to be dangerous. I knew I could die doing it. I still might. So don’t feel sorry for me." He added, "I’m proud I’m in this hospital after chasing my dream and not sitting on the couch watching Netflix. I’m proud of this pain." Mike is now re-learning to walk with use of a walker, and he shared video on social media of him taking some steps. He wrote, "From 24 miles per day to using this walker to get to bathroom. I’m on my way back. Gonna rebuild with patience and equanimity.”

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes are going to have a hard time convincing people they aren't more than just friends, especially since video surfaced online of the two making out at Shawn’s birthday in New York City last week. And that’s not all. Camila took to social media to send her birthday wishes to Shawn, admitting how she really feels about him. She wrote, “Happy birthday to this magic human, I love you,” along with four heart emojis (four!).

It’s no secret that things are serious between Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, and while there hasn’t been any kind of news of an engagement, the two are taking a big step in their relationship. According to “Entertainment Tonight,” the couple just purchased a home in Los Angeles together. Gwen’s current home, which she bought with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, is in escrow, meaning it’s just about sold. But according to a source, that doesn’t mean they’ll be rushing into marriage next. The source said, "Blake and Gwen are head over heels in love, but don't want to feel rushed to tie the knot when everything is going so well in both of their lives. Everyone is asking what they are waiting for, but they really just don’t want to rock the boat."

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth announced over the weekend that they were separating, just eight months after getting married. A rep told People, “They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart.” According to a People insider, “This split isn’t shocking to people who are actually with them every day. They’re not on the same page when it comes to a lot of fundamental things that make a relationship work. It’s not surprising at all.” One of those things would be kids. An insider told "OK! Australia" that Liam was eager to start a family, but Miley wasn’t. In the meantime, immediately following the split announcement, Miley was photographed kissing Kaitlynn Carter, the ex of Brody Jenner, at a hotel pool in Lake Como, Italy. And from what we hear, it was pretty busy at the pool, so she had to know the photo would get out there.

Jason Momoa says that he can’t start shooting the sequel to “Aquaman” yet because he was “run over by a bulldozer” while protesting in Hawaii. As we previously reported, Jason had joined the protest against the billion-dollar telescope project being built on top of a volcano that is considered sacred land to native Hawaiians. Taking to Instagram, he said, “sorry Warner Bros” but the effort is “4x bigger” than “Aquaman 2.”

Former “Bachelor/'Bachelorette” contestants Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon got married yesterday in Newport, Rhode Island.

People reports that producer Elan Gale officiated the wedding and that David Cook of “American Idol” handled the music.

Gigi Hadid revealed in an Instagram post that she was robbed on her trip to Mykonos, Greece. She posted a photo of herself wearing a polka dot bikini and posing in the mirror and wrote, “Got robbed.” She added, “Never going back lol. Wouldn’t recommend. Spend your money elsewhere.” Her father said thieves made off with Gigi and her sister Bella’s personal possessions. Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t Lindsay Lohan hang out in Mykonos a lot? Just sayin’…
