Zac Efron Wins Best Shirtless Performance, Gets Stripped by Rita Ora!

Shirtless-Zac-Efron-found-himself-middle-Jessica-Alba

Zac Efron may not have kept his earlier promise to accept his MTV Movie Award sans shirt, but no matter – presenter Rita Ora was quick to assist. 

The Neighbors star, 26, had Tweeted, “If I beat Thor – I’m accepting the award shirtless on stage” back in March, but when the moment finally came Sunday night, Efron’s button-down remained firmly in place. 



As the audience heckled him, Ora snuck up behind Efron and did the honors, ripping his shirt down to the navel to reveal that the actor had in fact been working on his fitness.


“I really don’t know what to say, but thank you so much to my fans,” a bare-chested Efron added before laughing and removing the top completely, whipping it around like a lasso. Rounding out his acceptance speech? A flex and salute to the cheering crowd.

Katy Perry “Wide Awake” Music Video: Released!

Katy Perry has said time and again lately that she’s not perfect and that her life is not a fairy tale. This is the theme of her “Wide Awake” video.

It starts off with KP wrapping up the shoot for “California Gurls,” before being transported to an alternate reality by a younger version of herself.

Take a look at it below:

“It’s kind of like the labyrinth of my life in the last two years,” Perry explained to MTV.

“I just wanted to tell a story about myself kind of going through this journey, maybe sometimes trying to get out of a maze. There’s good parts and bad parts.”

Is one of those bad parts an allusion to Russell Brand?

She’ll probably tell you it doesn’t, but at one point of the music video, our fair Katy Perry meets – and decks – her Prince Charming. Fitting.
