Although Selena Gomez was nowhere to be seen at the MTV Video Music Awards, the 22-year-old kept fans updated on her whereabouts via Instagram on Sunday.

In the caption-less photo, the “Come & Get It” singer poses for the camera with her long hair over her face, which appears to be dyed light blue and purple.

She was last spotted at the Variety and Women In Film pre-Emmy Celebration at Gracias Madre in West Hollywood on Saturday.

Earlier this month, Selena supposedly reunited with on-off boyfriend Justin Bieber, according to E! News correspondent Ken Baker. The “Recovery” singer shared a photo of himself cradling Selena — who is giving him a kiss on the cheek — on his Instagram account and later deleted.

Nicki Minaj had everyone’s eyes on her “big butt” during her performance of “Anaconda,” but when she came back out for her “Bang Bang” collaboration with Ariana Grande and Jessie J, she had us all looking at another part of her body.

When the rapper came out for her verse, her black dress was noticeably very open in the front and she needed both hands (luckily, she was wearing a wireless mic) to keep it from exposing more skin. Check out her reaction and how she handled it like a total pro:

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards are just a couple days away … and some of the performers are sharing their rehearsal photos!

Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj are opening up the VMAs with an expected bangin’ performance.

Jessie shared a photo on Thursday with the “Problem” singer during their VMA rehearsals of their hit song “Bang Bang“… and the two look gorgeous as usual.

Although the “Anaconda” rapper isn’t in the photos, she tweeted to her “little lady bugs” after their rehearsal.

Earlier this week, the trio gave a little sneak peek of the “Bang Bang” music video for a Beats by Dre and Target commercial, and now we get to go behind-the-scenes of the video with director Hannah Lux Davis.

Later in the show on Sunday, Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora will take the stage for their “Black Widow” performance.

Rita also shared some photos over Instagram of her and Iggy’s rehearsal!

The first photo is a selfie of the “I Will Never Let You Down” singer with the Australian rapper, who’s rocking a “Black Widow” jacket, and the second is of the two blonde beauties rehearsing onstage.

These photos just make us even more excited for Sunday’s VMAs! What do you expect to see this year from the performers?

DJ Mustard Opens up About Working With Rihanna

We’ve all heard “Mustard on that beat” at the start of tons of hit songs, like Jeremih‘s “Don’t Tell ‘Em,” “Rack City” by TygaTre Songz‘s “Na Na,” and “Show Me” from Kid Ink.

And on Friday morning, we had the man himself, DJ Mustard, in-studio at On Air with Ryan Seacrest.

The mega-producer, 24, was here for nearly an hour and talked with JoJo Wright and Ellen K. about everything from the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday (he’ll be the house DJ!) and getting surprised by a call from Jay Z that changed his life … to his collection of tattoos.

Mustard (real name: Dijon McFarlane) explained how he accidentally first came up with “Mustard on that beat.” The producer was living at rapper YG‘s house, “and he said it on a song a long time ago and I just took it from that song and put it on every single beat. It’s the same thing [on every track], I just changed the tempo of it.”

One of the most interesting things he revealed was the one artist whose track doesn’t include his infamous line: Rihanna.

“She didn’t say she didn’t want it,” he clarifies. “I just didn’t use it. I didn’t want them to take it off, and I’d be like, ‘Uh, why’d you take it off?’”

DJ Mustard also detailed what it’s like recording in the same studio once used by Michael Jackson.

“When you first walk in the studio, you feel the presence of Michael,” he says. “They have a thing, a glass wall with his glove and his hat, pictures. The room I work in is the room he used to work in. Upstairs from the room they call it the ‘Monkey Room’ because that’s where his monkey used to chill at while he was recording. And when you go in the recording booth, you can see, if you look up, you can see the glass the monkey looked through and watched him record his music. It’s a cool vibe and energy. It’s like history!”
