From the horrendous pre-show where none of the "hosts" let the "artists" talk, to the actual award show that didn't disappoint in giving us all comments that were laugh-worthy, once again Twitter was more exciting than this year's MTV Video Music Awards show. The truth of the matter? Following Twitter is almost always more fun than any actual award show and this year during the 2013 VMA's, the tweets that the viewers churned out didn't let us down. People definitely weren't shy about bagging on the term "Mahomie" that was spewed out of singer Austin Mahone's mouth, or Miley Cyrus's excessive need to keep sticking her rank tongue out her mouth while gyrating a foam finger into her latex covered vagina. The MTV #VMA hashtag was on fire and we captured some of the best of the best just for you.

This Sunday at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, Justin Timberlake is going to be receiving the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The most prestigious of all Moonmen, the Video Vanguard Award is given to artists or directors who've particularly pushed the limits of music videos and advanced the art form. It's an award that's not even handed out annually, making the few who receive it all the more significant. Timberlake's been a staple of MTV for the past 15 years, exactly half as long as the VMAs have been on-the-air themselves, so we at the Weekly have decided to look back at Timberlake's most memorable video moments.
When it comes to bringing amazingly epic and comical quick quips on MTV's "Guy Code," Lil Duval has it down to an artform. He's so hilarious in fact that MTV2 gave him his own show that will be premiering on July 9th called, "Ain't That America." And for good reason. He's funny on TV, his stand-up is funny, he's funny on Twitter...are you noticing a trend here people? Lil Duval kicks ass in the funny department. Before the premiere of his new show we got the scoop on what he has in store for us, found out how he handled being at EDC, and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to shit talk with him about some of his recent tweets. What we learned is that without a doubt, Lil Duval is living the American dream.

This week, we at the Weekly have been celebrating 20 years of Beavis and Butthead, and we'd be remiss to not mention the many memorable moments the boys had outside their standard MTV timeslot. Yes, while the catchphrases and riffs are the memories we hold most dear, it's important to remember exactly how ubiquitous the two were in '90s pop culture. From award shows to talk shows to their own feature-length film, they've accomplished a lot for a couple of animated underachievers. Here are our picks for the Top Five Beavis and Butthead Special Appearances.More »

Last weekend marked 20 wonderful years since MTV aired the first episode of Beavis and Butthead. While the duo changed the way the world viewed Generation X, as well as ushered in one of the sharpest satires of the '90s, it also popularized the idea of video "riffing" to a brand-new audience. No longer were MTV videos flooding the network solely for viewer approval; now, two oft-hilarious critics were watching along with us to let us know what "kicks ass" and what "sucks." It is in salute to the two most trusted music critics of the '90s that we count down the top five Beavis and Butthead video riffs of all time.More »

It is in salute to the two titans of trouble that we bring you our choices for the five best Beavis and Butthead episodes of all time. Yes, we're all gonna score.

This week, MTV premiered its new show "Nikki & Sara LIVE." A fun skewering of pop culture, the show continues in the tradition of razor-sharp wit and disarming charm from buddy-outings that has brought some of the most fun moment of original programming for almost the channel's entire existence. Being that we at the Weekly always want our MTV, we decided now would be a great time to look back at some of our all time favorite MTV duos!

Today marks the release of Pitch Perfect, a youthful music-centric comedy that you may be surprised to know ISN'T being released by MTV Films. Yes, despite the absurdly heavy cross-promotion on the network and the story of competing college acapella groups being perfect for the imprint, the movie somehow wound up not being under the official MTV Films banner. Surprised by this oversight, we at the Weekly decided to take a look back at five of MTV Films' proud lineage by spotlighting the studios' most memorable releases
