Watch teen Jennifer Lawrence covered in cake in old MTV promo video

The journey from being covered in cake to being covered in Christian Dior took about eight years for Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence.

The 22-year-old "Silver Lining Playbook" star won a statuette for "Best Female Actor in a film" at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday and took a moment at the mic to reveal the role that got her a SAG card (she also accidentally revealed her gown's construction during a stage ascent that set off a "did she rip her dress?!" ripple in the chatterverse).

Lawrence — in a move perhaps meant to repair the percieved puffery of her quote-gone-wrong speech at the Golden Globes — shared her very blonde, less-than-award-winning beginning as the birthday girl in a set of MTV promos for "My Super Sweet 16."

Results of MTV's "The Music Experiment: Flux Pavilion" are in, and they are not shocking — electronic dance music draws large, sometimes uncontrollable crowds.

MTV Iggy, a division that channels international music to American audiences, held the final of four exclusive shows in town on Tuesday night with the British DJ and dubstep producer Flux Pavilion, sometimes known as Joshua Steele.

But it wasn't the 400 attendees inside Santa Monica Airport's Hangar: 8 (capacity: 1,500 people) that prompted police to the scene, it was the estimated 2,000-2,500 people crowding the surrounding grounds.

In filming the Amoeba Records ticket-giveaway portion of the event — for which people began lining up in the wee hours of the morning — organizers wrote of the early, overwhelming fan response:

"Hollywood wasn’t ready for the lines of super fans ready to claim their Music Experiment tickets to see Flux Pavilion perform live. See the pandemonium for yourself… Become one with your fellow raver, or something."
