Morning Links: Beyonce Is Pregnant, Justin Bieber Remixes Drake’s ‘Trust Issues’

● Beyoncé stole last night’s MTV VMAs before they even began, announcing during the pre-show that she was pregnant.

Lady Gaga opened the show in drag, Tyler, the Creator took home the best new artist award for his suicide fantasy “Yonkers,” and Justin Bieber walked around carrying a snake. Young and restless, the kids will be alright. [NYT] ● They aren’t even done filming yet, but here’s the first cut of The Hunger Games trailer. [Huff Post]

Of Hollywood Royal blood, the guest list included greats like George Lucas and George Clooney, and the food was locally sourced. [People] ● Brad Pitt has upped his hero game, actually saving the life of a woman this weekend by getting her up and out of the way after she fell while filming a scene with 700 eager zombie extras on the set of his World War Z.
