Nicki Minaj's Backup Dancer Bitten By Snake During MTV VMAs Rehearsal

Nicki Minaj's recent snake obsession appears to have come back to bite her as one of the rapper's backup dancers were bitten by a live snake during rehearsals for her MTV Video Music Awards performance.

During the Friday rehearsal, a 6-foot-long boa constrictor named Rocky was draped around her shoulders when the incident occurred. The 31-year-old entertainer rushed to her dancer's side immediately after the bite took place.

Although the snake wasn't venomous, the female dancer was treated at the scene to clean her wound and transported to a nearby hospital prevent a bacterial infection "out of an abidance of caution," Chris Velvin, director of production safety for Viacom Media Networks, said.

"It is in no way life-threatening, but scary," Velvin added "We wanted her to start getting treatment as soon as possible."

The snake, who had worked in the industry for 15 years, was removed from set by a nearby animal handler. As it stands, Minaj and company plan on using a different snake for her performance during the awards show.

Is that a fat suit or an inflatable one?

Chris Martin appears to be tackling the topic of body image issues as the Coldplay frontman plays a portly janitor in the music video for their single True Love.

Gwyneth Paltrow's ex is also joined by Pompeii star Jessica Lucas as she portrays his soulmate in a similar fat suit in the video directed by Jonas Åkerlund.

With the heartfelt message shown loud and clear, wonder if this is a subtle sign pointed towards the Goopster?

Hope she's ok!

Last night, Iggy Azalea experienced the opposite of her rise to stardom when she fell off stage during an MTV Video Music Awards benefit concert.

The 24-year-old Australian rapper was performing her hit song Fancy alongside Charli XCX at the Avalon theatre in Hollywood when the incident occurred. Luckily, security guards were quick to pull Iggy back on stage as she barely missed a beat despite the tumble.

The budding entertainer took it all in good spirits as she posted a video of the fall on her Instagram account shortly after.

"Sorry but it would be a crime not to share this with you all, I know I laughed. #StillFinishedtheSongTho #KeptOnRapping #TheShowMustGoOn," she posted along with the short clip.

Glad she still has some humility to go with the fame!

Woah, that's early!

Earlier today, Kendall and Kylie Jenner looked ready for some shut eye/another day of work as the two woke up before the crack of dawn to jet out of LAX to head to Seattle. They even came prepared with pillows!

It appears the two girls are oh so inseparable these days, as evident by their similar black and white attire they sported while having lunch at Toast on Friday.

Turns out these two weren't always the closest as they shed some light on their rocky beginnings.

“We had some good fights…we had our moments,” the sisters revealed while guest starring on the MTV show Ridiculousness. “We’ve actually pulled a knife on each other once,” Kendall said. “We were fighting over lemons, believe it or not…one thing lead to another and a knife came out and I ran.”

They've come a long way from fighting over fruit!

Kim Kardashian's Baby Girl And A Giraffe Share A Close Encounter

Posted on Sat Aug 23rd, 2014 8:35am PDT       By X17 Staff

That was close!

While enjoying a family day at the San Diego Zoo on Friday, Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian's little girl North West got a little up close and personal with a giraffe to the point where it almost seemed as if they would get bitten!

"Thank You @SanDiegoZoo for the most amazing day!!!! #memories #churros #myoneyearoldbirthdaywashere! #cantwaittocomeback! #family," Kris Jenner posted on her Instagram account along with an adorable photo of grandmother and granddaughter holding each other close.

The 58-year-old reality star was also joined by Kim and Kourtney Kardashian along with her two kids Mason and Penelope on what appeared to be a fun-filled day at the famed zoo.

Glad to see the Kardashian klan enjoy each other's (and the wildlife's) company!


Lindsay Lohan Suffers A Spray Tan Malfunction

Posted on Fri Aug 22nd, 2014 2:35pm PDT       By X17 Staff

She needs to call Kim Kardashian's bronzing guy!

Lindsay Lohan donned short shorts and a plaid shirt as she headed into an apartment in NYC today, and we couldn't help but notice that some parts of the actress' legs were white and freckly while other parts were the tell-tale spray tan orange. Either she got a bad misting job, or it has been too long since her last one! Regardless, it's not an attractive look for the Mean Girls star.

Rumors surfaced this week that the rehabbed redhead was dating older investment banker Patrick Mahony, but the 28-year-old's camp denied the report. "It's not true. She's single," her rep said in a statement to MailOnline. Just because she's not in a relationship doesn't mean she isn't enjoying a hot hook up here and there, though! We're actually wondering if something is going on with her and Jared Leto? The two were both at the Bowery Hotel on Wednesday night, and she nominated the Oscar winner for the Ice Bucket Challenge during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that same day.

Tell us who you're dating Lilo, or we will have to find out ourselves!

Selena Gomez left Justin Bieber's new Hollywood Hills mansion on Friday morning after yet ANOTHER sleepover (the two spent the night last Saturday and on Wednesday night), and after that she went to lunch with some gal pals in Los Angeles.

We're thinking she showered and had a change of clothes at Biebs' house this morning -- if not, she's one dirty girl! But it definitely looks like that perfectly flat-ironed hair is from the night before ... gotta look good for the Biebs!

After lunch, Selena posted the video below and wrote, "Oceans -Hillsong church "spirit lead me where my trust is without boarders" so beautifully written. Have a great morning everyone!" Wonder if she sings these sweet songs to her man?

Despite the fact that JB has seemingly relished in the opportunity to rub his flings in Selena's face over the last few months, these two always end up back together. But how long will Jelena last this time around?! Be sure to cast your vote in our poll below!

Stacy Keibler And Jared Pobre Welcome Baby Girl

Posted on Fri Aug 22nd, 2014 1:22pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Stacy Keibler is a mama! The first time mom revealed on her website that she gave birth to a daughter earlier this week. The leggy lady and hubby Jared Pobre welcomed Ava Grace Pobre on Wednesday.

The Supermarket Superstar host wrote, "Jared and I have been blessed with the new love of our lives. Ava Grace Pobre was born at home on Wednesday, August 20th. We’ve never experienced a level of joy and happiness like this before! Thank you so much for all of the special wishes and positive energy."

After secretly getting married in Mexico, Keibler announced in March that she and Pobre were expecting. It's been quite a whirlwind 12 months for the woman whose two-year relationship with George Clooney ended in July 2013; Keibler and the 39-year-old mogul began dating in September of last year.

Keibler recently told Fit Pregnancy magazine that she wasn't sure she wanted kids or to get married."Before we met, both Jared and I had told our parents we didn't think we'd ever get married or have kids. But when you're with the right person, everything changes."

Looks like it hot mama!
