She's been giving people the finger for years now, so it was bound to happen at some point; she's after breaking one of them. If photos of her wandering through LAX yesterday are anything to go by, the middle finger on her left hand has given up.

Or perhaps she's just giving it a rest in the build up to the pending Toronto Film Festival, where she will be forced to promote her new film On The Road. So that means talking to probing journalists on a red carpet. Journalists who might just sly in a question about that whole Robert Pattinson / Rupert Sanders scenario.

Oh, and then there's the MTV VMAs to consider. They're on tonight and she's expected to attend. As is Robert Pattinson. VMA host Kevin Hart confirmed to Bang Showbiz, "From what I understand they're both still gonna be here. I'm not really up to speed on the whole soap opera that's been going on between them. I know they've got a movie to promote. Twilight's coming out so it makes sense for them to show up at the VMAs if you ask me."

The VMA's kick off tonight stateside at 8pm EST. If you want to watch it live for whatever reason, there are plenty of online streams available.

Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, P!nk and some others are due to perform, while One Direction, The Wanted, Carly Rae Jepson are nominated. Yeeeaah, just watch the repeat. There'll be plenty of them. The first repeat can be seen tomorrow on MTV at 9.00pm.
