The video of a tired, red-eyed Britney is captioned "When you're having a shitty day," and not only does it look like she's been crying, it appears she's about to break down again  just before the video cuts off.

BRIT'S DAD NOW OWNS THE VIDEO: As for the video, TMZ says Britney's dad paid a "SUBSTANTIAL amount of money" to make sure it never sees the light of day. His rep says he did it to protect Britney from the embarrassment of it going public.

The site reports that as soon as Jamie got wind it existed, he called around, found out who was selling it, bought it, then showed it to his daughter.

JOAN RIVERS IN MEDICALLY INDUCED COMA - WILL SHE DIE?!: JOAN RIVERS is in critical but stable condition at a New York City hospital after she stopped breathing during surgery on her vocal cords and went into cardiac arrest.

It happened at an outpatient clinic yesterday morning while doctors were putting a scope down her throat.  She was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital and has since been placed in a medically-induced coma. Doctors say they're going to take her out of it at some point this weekend to assess the damage.

It's been learned since that Rivers had performed the night before, and witnesses say she did joke about dying. "I'm 81," she said. "I could go at any moment. I could fall over right here and you all could say, 'I was there!'"

BEYONCE'S DAD CLAIMS DIVORCE DRAMA IS 'JEDI MIND TRICK': Divorce rumors have been dogging BEYONCÉ and JAY Z for months now, but Bey's dad claims that's exactly what they wanted.

Mathew Knowles said in a radio interview yesterday that Jay and his daughter created the divorce drama to sell tickets and generate talk and interest in their tour.

He said he knows this because they've done the same kind of thing many times before.

"I know [it was fake], because we've done this. From experience, there's a tour going on. So you sometimes have to ignite that tour. It's called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot."

He added, "Everyone's talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange's album sales went up 200%."

 And speaking of Solange, Knowles even alleged that Jay's elevator fight with her was faked as well. Mathew used to be Beyonce's manager until three years ago. He claims they still talk all the time, but who knows now after making these statements.

POOR ALBUM SALES TO BLAME FOR MARIAH/CANNON SPLIT?!: NICK CANNON recently confirmed he and MARIAH are living apart, and now a source tells People magazine their six-year marriage "has been bad for a while."

One big issue, it's claimed, is the poor performance of Mariah's recent album. "When things don't go well career-wise, sometimes you turn on your other half," the source tells the magazine.The source also notes that Mariah "can also be high-maintenance."

A second source adds that their split "could get contentious" because "there is a lot to fight over."

LET THE 'DANCING' RUMORS BEGIN: It's that time of the year again; time to speculate on which "celebrities" will be on the next season of "Dancing with the Stars".

Well, for what it's worth Us magazine is throwing the following names out there: Olympic track star Lolo Jones, actor Antonio Sabato Jr., "American Ninja Warrior" Kacy Catanzaro, Kandi Burruss from "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" and former UFC fighter Randy Couture.

They also claim that a member of the Robertson family from "Duck Dynasty" is on board, but not one of the bearded guys. It's supposedly the 17 year-old daughter Sadie Robertson. Oh, and the producers are hoping to "land a female YouTube star," whatever that means.

The cast will be officially announced on "Good Morning America" next Thursday.

WATCH - FART REMIX OF MINAJ SONG WILL MAKE YOU LOL: Somebody with a lot of time on their hands and a Bevis and Butthead sense of humor made a parody of NICKI MINAJ'S "Anaconda" video, where Nicki and all the other girls keep passing gas.

It's completely juvenile and stupid, but I'm willing to bet you won't be able to keep from laughing. Press play and prove me wrong ...

JUSTIN BIEBER LUNGES AT FAN - WILL HE GO TO JAIL?!: JUSTIN BIEBER might be facing criminal charges after a night out with SELENA GOMEZ at a Dave & Buster's on Monday. The Biebz reportedly lunged at a fan who was taking pictures of them, and tried to take his phone away.

His bodyguard held him back, so Justin never actually made contact with the guy, but word is the guy wants to press charges anyway. TMZ says those charges could include attempted battery, robbery and theft -- any of which could constitute a violation of the probation Justin's on for egging his neighbor's house.

Meanwhile ... Justin was rear-ended by a paparazzo in West Hollywood yesterday afternoon, and TMZ claims Justin purposely slammed on his brakes so the guy would hit him. From the photos and really uninteresting video on their site, it doesn't look like either car was messed up too badly.

He later Tweeted ...

This from the same punk who got tired of sitting in L.A. traffic last Thursday, so he drove his three-wheeled motorcycle on the sidewalk. Cuz that's not dangerous, reckless or illegal.

MILEY CYRUS IS GOING OFF ON THE MEDIA FOR REPORTING ON HER HOMELESS FRIEND'S CRIMINAL RECORD: The homeless guy that accepted MILEY CYRUS' VMA award on Sunday has a criminal record, and Miley is going off on the media for reporting it.

Jesse Helt has a warrant out for his arrest in Salem, Oregon for violating probation on previous charges involving an incident in 2010 in which he tried to break into an apartment. His probation violations include failing to show up in court, not finishing community service hours, and failing a drug test.

It's also been learned that Jesse is not technically homeless. He has a mom who told the media yesterday he could go back to Salem and live with her anytime he wants to. She said the he's chosen to be homeless because he'd rather stay and try to make it in Hollywood.

Miley responded to the criticism on Twitter, writing ...

"While they obsesses [sic] over one homeless man's legal issue," she continued in a separate Tweet, "let's help the other 1.6 million homeless youth," and added a donation link.

BEYONCE AND JAY Z FOUGHT BACKSTAGE AT VMA'S: BEYONCÉ and JAY Z were the picture of family harmony onstage at the VMAs Sunday night, but the not-very-reliable gossip site Media TakeOut says things were not so loving behind the scenes.

So called "sources" say Bey lit into Jay after finding out her sister Solange was banned from the staging area. It's not clear if it was Jay or MTV that banned her, but the site claims Jay was trying to calm Yonce down, and she wasn't having it.

According to the blabber-mouth, "she wasn't really yelling, but...her neck was she was giving him hell."

DID NICKI MINAJ STAGE VMA WARDROBE MALFUNCTION?!: You how when NICKI MINAJ hit the stage at the VMAs Sunday night she had to manually hold the little black dress she was wearing because it wouldn't close?

The Internet called it a wardrobe malfunction. Well, sources tell TMZ it may have been staged. That Nicki did the same thing in rehearsals while "experimenting" to see how much skin she could get away with exposing.

Nicki hasn't addressed the gossip site's claim, but after the show on Sunday she told reporters backstage that she simpley "ran out of time getting the dress zipped up."

MILEY BROUGHT HOMELESS GUY TO VMAS BECAUSE SHE REALIZED HER POWER: MILEY CYRUS' "Wrecking Ball" won Video of the Year on Sunday's award show, and instead of taking the stage, she sent up a young guy named Jesse, who revealed he's homeless.

He then accepted the award for the "1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost and scared for their lives right now."

Yesterday, while discussing her stunt on a radio interview, she said she had Jesse accept her award because she realized how much POWER she has, after last year's performance with ROBIN THICKE. So take that people who say no good has come from twerking! Whenever we solve the homelessness problem, it'll be all because Miley twerked at the VMAs in 2013.

EMMY HIGHLIGHTS AND MEMORABLE MOMENTS: (1). GWEN STEFANI announced a win for "The Colbert Report" as the Best Variety, Music, or Comedy Series -- but she mispronounced it "The Col-BOAR Report". Even so, it was nowhere near as bad as JOHN TRAVOLTA'S "Adele Dazeem" Oscar moment.

(2.) SOFIA VERGARA is getting some shade thrown her way over the spinning platform bit she participated in. During the usual, boring speech by the Television Academy president, they put her on a spinning platform, the premise being so everyone could ogle her while the president gave the usual, boring speech.

KATE HUDSON screamed like a girl before the water even hit her.

TINA FEY had a young girl -- possibly her own daughter -- do it in her place. Then she whipped out her checkbook and said, "I'm just gonna donate, guys." (WATCH)

MARIAH IS MAD AT NICK CANNON FOR CONFIRMING SEPARATION: MARIAH CAREY is not happy that NICK CANNON went public about their separation. Word on the street is they had agreed to issue a joint statement, which was being worked on when Nick blabbed.

A source tells E News, "She can't believe he went and did that . . .  for her, it was the last straw. She's done with him now. It's no longer amicable. Things are getting ugly."

As for why the once happy marriage is ending, the source claims "it has a lot to do with Nick's career choices. He does not have to work, but he's been throwing himself into gigs and projects."

Meanwhile, peeps close to Nick's inner circle say it was Nick who decided to leave because he's worried about Mariah's emotional state, and the effect it will have on their twins.They say he wanted to get out and establish a stable environment where the kids can go to escape Mariah's madness because it's already starting to mess them up.

SHIA LABEOUF CALLS 911 ON A STALKER WHILE SHE'S STANDING RIGHT THERE: SHIA LABEOUF called 911 to report a stalker at his house ... while said stalker was right there! In fact, you can even hear her on the call, and he actually stops talking to the operator long enough to tell the stalker, "Don't touch me."

The woman, 31-year-old Graciela Nahle, has reportedly been bugging Shia for a while. She was arrested and pleaded no contest to trespassing. She was sentenced to 45 days in jail, but was released after just four.

MTV VMAS HIGHLIGHTS AND MEMORABLE MOMENTS: This year's VMA's were, for the most part, unremarkable.  A lot of people thought NICKI MINAJ was going to bring the raunch when she did "Anaconda", but aside from a little twerking, it wasn't that bad -- especially compared to Miley's antics last year.

Nicki did have a wardrobe malfunction when she did a quick change and came back out to do her part on "Bang Bang" with JESSIE J and ARIANA GRANDE.

For some reason, the front of her outfit wouldn't stay closed, so she had to hold it together with her hands. But, I gotta tell you, she handled it like a pro.

2. BEYONCÉ closed the show by accepting the Video Vanguard Award from hubby JAY Z, who took the stage with their daughter Blue Ivy after Bey did a 16-minute medley of all the songs from her latest album. Jay called her "the greatest living entertainer" and Yonce Beyonce says, quote, "Blue-Blue, I love you . . . my beloved, I love you . . . my fans, I love you." (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO)

They didn't look or sound like they were about to get divorced, but it was probably all for show, because we all know how the Internet is never wrong about these things.

VMA FASHION RUNDOWN - AN ABUNDANCE OF CLEAVAGE, AND TAYLOR SWIFT'S WEIRD JUMPSUIT: There were some interesting fashion choices on the VMA Red Carpet last night.

DEMI LOVATO'S cleavage was so wide, it made me think of the parting of the Red Sea -- mostly because her dress was red and I'm so dramatic. Meanwhile, KIM KARDASHIAN'S neckline plunged down beneath her lower sternum.  (PHOTO) (PHOTO)

KATY PERRY showed up with white rapper Riff Raff, and they were both wearing all denim. It was a callback to when BRITNEY SPEARS and JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE rocked the all-denim look at the American Music Awards in 2001. (PHOTO)

TAYLOR SWIFT wore one of the strangest outfits of the night. It was a blue jumpsuit without any legs. Or, to put it another way: A turquoise one-piece bathing suit with sleeves. Oh, and it was covered with random letters. (PHOTO)
