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!

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.

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)
