VMA host Kevin Hart on Kristen Stewart

Staying in Los Angeles, and maybe to the embarrassment of a number of the principal players, VMA host Kevin James chose to address the Pattinson-Stewart controversy and asked the public to forgive Stewart.

"Everybody's mad at Kristen Stewart for making a mistake. She allegedly messed around with the director of 'Snow White and the Huntsman," the 32-year-old said, "If she did, so what' It's over. Move on. Look on the bride side, they're now a part of the seven dwarfs. You've got sleepy, grumpy, adultery, cheating."

"The point that I'm making is this, if you made a mistake . . . so what!" Hart added, "I'm going to make mistakes because people made mistakes before. Kanye West . . . Britney Spears and Madonna when they kissed . . . Russell Brand hosted - twice!"
