Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and more at the Billboard Music Awards!

Katy Perry won a major award last night at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, NV. She picked up the Spotlight Award for matching Michael Jackson’s record five No. 1 singles off one album.

Teenage Dream spun off the No. 1 Hot 100 hits “California Gurls” (featuring Snoop Dogg), “Teenage Dream,” “E.T.” (featuring Kanye West), “Firework” and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.).” The singer nabbed yet another No. 1 this year, with “Part of Me,” the first single off the special edition album Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection.

Perry also performed her new single, ‘Wide Awake’ on the BBMA stage. The song was written for her upcoming 3D film, Katy Perry: Part of Me.

Taylor Swift won Billboard’s Woman of the Year, and was presented with her award by Zooey Deschanel.

Billboard also honored the late Whitney Houston, with a tribute performed by John Legend and Jordin Sparks. Jordin starred alongside Whitney in the singer’s last film, “Sparkle”. Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, accepted the Billboard Millennium Award on her mother’s behalf.

“I just really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all,” she said. “Not just when it was good, but when it was bad too … Thank you so much for showing that much love, because she deserved it.”

There was another tribute last night, and that was performed by Natasha Bedingfield. The singer paid tribute to Donna Summer, who past away from cancer last week.

On a lighter note, Alicia Keys honored Stevie Wonder with the Billboard Icon Award. The duo performed a medley of Wonder’s hits, “Higher Ground” and “Overjoyed.” But before getting off the stage, the pair had one more surprise in store. With a little encouragement from Wonder, who recently celebrated his 62nd birthday and had one wish for the soulful songstress, Keys belted out the chorus of Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind.”

Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Alicia Keys on the cover of Glamour!

Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Alicia Keys team up for the latest cover of Glamour Magazine. The three women pose together for two reasons, first – breast cancer awareness – and second, the trio are promoting their Lifetime project, Five. Five is a two hour movie – broken up into five short films on breast cancer directed by each of the three actresses.

Here is part of the interview, the full interview is here:

Aniston on raising awareness: “Because we don’t yet have a cure, and cancer has grown 30,000 snakes out of its head. We need to go at this Medusa with all the firepower we’ve got, from research and legislation, to awareness and early detection, to support groups and compassion for everyone who walks through this. We need to show up for them, to talk to them, to not be afraid. We want people to walk away with hope and information but feel incredibly entertained. Cancer affects all of us, whether you’re a daughter, mother, sister, friend, coworker, doctor, patient. These films touch on that reality. The film I directed is called Mia, and it’s about a woman who takes her diagnosis as a death sentence and gives up—only to discover she’s gone into remission. We want people to know it is very possible to conquer breast cancer.”

The last time Aniston was “giddy”: “Putting my feet and handprints in cement in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre [on the historic Hollywood Walk of Fame]. That got me giddy! It was a milestone in my career, which was surreal because I still think I’m at the beginning of it. I remember when they told me about the honor, I thought, Really? I mean, I just did Ferris Bueller [the TV show]. I just did Leprechaun! I don’t understand! I thought, I just had a year of failures. [Laughs.] I’ve never lost that feeling of “Oh God, I hope I get this job!” I don’t want to get too used to any of this because then entitlement sets in, and that’s the kiss of death.”

Aniston on being 40, and remembering her 20s: “Being this side of 40 feels like what I should have felt being this side of 25: in my body, in my heart, happy with my life, and OK with whatever bumps in the road present themselves. Honestly, whatever angst-y times I’ve had came after fame, which we both know was after 22. When I was 22, I was having a ball! I would have nothing to say to myself. [Laughs. ] I was living in Laurel Canyon with my best friends, including you, and we were dreaming of creating things like Five.

Aniston on wearing the same bikinis year after year: “…and I’ll wear it for as many years as the strings still tie! Bathing suits now have so much hardware on them that they singe your skin. When you take your bikini off, it looks like you’ve been branded with crop circles and lightning bolts and words like Gucci!”

Aniston on relationships: “I couldn’t be in a relationship without … A human being! OK, in all seriousness, I would say I couldn’t be in a relationship without equality, generosity, integrity, spirit, kindness and humor. And awesomeness.”

Aniston on setting the record straight: “There’s not enough space in this article. Not even enough pages in this magazine! The truth is, most celebrities are doing the same things most other people are doing every day…work, have dinner, hang out with your friends when you can, try and keep up with the crazy world we’re living in and squeeze in some zzz’s. There’s not nearly as much stealing and obsessing and middle-of-the-night secret calls to ex-boyfriends and scheming and cheating [as they lead you to believe]. Most of it’s just bulls—t, however entertaining.”

Demi Moore on how she started on Twitter: “Originally, Ash and I were just playing, seeing what it did and what it meant. I’m intensely private, and I’ve openly shown annoyance at the paparazzi. That’s served in the past to create an image of me where I’m always frowning or looking angry. I saw Twitter as this opportunity to connect with people and actually show a side of myself that is much lighter. And all of a sudden people were getting to know me, and I was connecting with people. At its core Twitter is about sharing, and I think that in life we never feel better or more energized than when we’re giving to someone else.”

Demi on what makes her “giddy”: “I’m an old-school romantic, so I get giddy when Ashton shows me another way of saying “I love you”—any little thought or gesture that’s playful or sweet. We leave Post-it notes for each other; some have been sticking up for five or six years! For me, it’s the small things. The first day of filming Charlotte, Ashton sent this bouquet of soft blue flowers with a card that said, “I believe in you.” I put them in this little room that I parked myself in while we were shooting in the rest of the house, and that was the room that we shot my movie’s final scene in. “

Alicia Keys on reality singing competitions: “I used to watch American Idol a little bit. My grandmother sucked me into it, and I was like, “Why am I watching this, Nana?” Initially, I felt like it was showing people that to be an artist you’re just supposed to get on TV. But as time passed, and the industry changed, I started thinking of it as an outlet for people who otherwise wouldn’t have any opportunity to be heard. Now I think it’s a good thing. When you’re talented, you’re talented.”

Alicia calls her relationship a “blessing”: “Yes. It’s beautiful because rarely, I think, do you find a relationship where you can experience things equally. In fact, I think that’s my favorite word and the most important word when it comes to relationships: equality. And that’s what we’ve been able to find. We encourage each other equally. We’re excited for each other.”

Alicia remembers the exact moment she fell in love with Swizz: “I do remember the exact moment. If I told you, I would have to kill you, but it was something that he planned, and he planned it so beautifully and thoughtfully that in that moment I remember thinking to myself, Oh my God, I’m so in love with him.”

On baby Egypt: “My son, Egypt, makes me super giddy, especially when he laughs. His laugh makes me laugh like a maniac! I do think about [what kind of man I want him to be] a lot. He’s going to be a man in this world. It’s a beautiful blessing that I get to help raise a man. And I want to show him as much as possible.”

Why she named her kid Egypt: “ It was a time of transition. There were certain people [I was working with] who weren’t right. I had friends who weren’t right anymore. I was tired and I had overworked myself and burnt myself out. So I went to Egypt by myself. When I saw what was built there, it made me understand how powerful we are, that we can create anything. And I felt like I needed to create things that were timeless too.”

Is it just me – or is Alicia Keys’ wax figure white?

Alicia Keys proudly poses at the unveiling of her wax figure at Madame Tussauds in New York City yesterday afternoon. And when I first saw her wax figure – I immediately thought – is she…… white now? I mean, doesn’t that wax figure look white to you?

I think all wax figures are creepy as all hell, but this is just strange.
