  • Just so you know, Sofia Vergara doesn't think the Emmys putting her on a revolving pedestal was at all sexist. “I think its absolutely the opposite. It means that somebody can be hot and also be funny and make fun of herself," Vergara said in the skit's defense. [EW]
  • Donald Glover is going to get Spider-Man! He's going to be animated and on TV, but hey, it's a start. [USA Today]
  • BTW, Sarah Hyland is single now. [Us Weekly]
  • Surprisingly, the highest-paid actor in TV can't be found on "The Big Bang Theory." No, that title is still held by "Two and a Half Men's" Ashton Kutcher. [Forbes]

VMAs: About Nicki Minaj's wardrobe malfunction

At Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards, Nicki Minaj made a quick dress change that left her only partially clothed.

The rapper helped open the awards show with back-to-back performances, and each required its own costume. For her first song of the night, "Anaconda," Minaj appeared on stage in a green, sequined two-piece.

But as her performance transitioned into her single with Jessie J and Ariana Grande, "Bang Bang," the rapper tried to swap her green get-up for a sleek black dress - except she didn't exactly get it on in time to take the stage.

Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda,' and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Rapper Nick Minaj has never been known for being subtle, and her new music video is no exception. She samples Sir-Mix-Alot's "Baby Got Back" and there is plenty of that as well as a lap dance for her labelmate Drake. Warning, the language – and the booty – leans towards the graphic:
