One of the hottest trends this summer is the caged heel.

This sexy shoe was most notably seen on Yves Saint Laurent's Spring 2009 runway, and has made its way to mass retail stores everywhere, including Topshop and Aldo.

But beware: this shoe is not safe for those with foot fetishes!

The caged heel made several appearances at the MTV Movie Awards 2009 being sported on some of Hollywood's hottest young stars right now. Some opted for more dramatic versions, while others more subtle.

Check out the stars sporting this look at the MTV Movie Awards 2009 below.

Lady Gaga - Paparazzi Official Video

Lady Gaga has managed to outdo herself again.

The video for her latest U.K. single, "Paparazzi" has been released, and it's one of the most interesting videos I've seen in a while.

Shot as a mini-film, the video was directed by Jonas Akerlund, who has worked with Madonna, and is definitely Lady Gaga's best video.

It's creative, and its striking images and message is so Gaga.

They don't make them like these anymore!

Chris Brown claims he's not a "monster"


Chris Brown is addressing the public in a video about his alleged assault towards then-girlfriend Rihanna back in February.

However, he also takes the chance to promote his new album Graffiti and his next single that will be coming out this summer.

“I just wanna say ‘what’s up?’ because I ain’t been out there in a minute,” he says in the video that was shot at Shaquille O’Neal’s house with Bow Wow. “But the new album is gonna be coming soon. We working on it right now. It’s called Graffiti. It’s got everything on it, so y’all be ready for that.”

He concluded with, “Everybody that’s haters, they just been haters. All my real fans, I love you all. I ain’t a monster.”

Really Chris? Because beating your girlfriend sure makes you seem like one.

Let's hope radio stations continue boycotting his songs!

The Fendi Abici Amante Donna

Trust Karl Lagerfeld to put fur on a bicycle.

The designer has released a new bicycle for Fendi called the Fendi Abici Amante Donna. It comes in two different versions, and both are available at Saks Fifth Avenue flagship stores.

The first version is covered with leather accessories such as a GPS holder and a detachable bike bag and is selling for $5,900. The second is much pricier at $9,500, due to its removable fur saddlebags on the back tire.

At least it's less expensive than Lagerfeld's Chanel bike that sold for $12,000 last year!

Let's hope whoever buys this bike has a security guard handy to prevent it from being stolen!

Cam Gigandet's "Funny or Die" spoof

Would you wear the "assless" tights?

American Apparel is known for its risqué, barely there clothing. But this time, they've outdone themselves with their new "assless" tights.

The tights are the same pantyhose the brand has been selling for a while, but with the bum cut out!
They're still in production though, so don't expect to see them in stores just yet.

But honestly, what's the point of these tights? How can these possibly be worn in public, with the exception of a strip club?

Would you wear the "assless" tights?

Best Dressed: Adam Lambert

Although he may not have been crowned American Idol, Adam Lambert was definitely the best dressed of the bunch throughout the season.

From the hair, to the guyliner, to the black nailpolish to the shoes, Lambert never ceased to impress the audience with his excellent sense of style.

I especially loved the wings he donned last night during his performance with KISS!
