WTF?!? Moments in VMA History
The momentous MTV Video Music Awards are on the horizon, and even though they haven’t been so momentous in recent years (seriously, the show has gone way downhill since I was in high school) there have been some pretty unforgettable speeches and performances in the past 15 years.
Yeah, the VMA’s are totally boring but that doesn’t mean some pretty crazy shit hasn’t gone down in the past. Want some proof? Check out these 5 crazy VMA moments…maybe this year will live up to these:
#5: Michael Jackson sucking face with then-wife Lisa Marie Presley. Absolutely gross, but just like a car wreck, could anyone not watch? Even Lisa Marie looked insanely uncomfortable and not in the least bit horny.
#4: Nirvana’s bassist gets slammed in the face with his guitar. When you’re trying to look like a hard-ass, it never works out. Krist Novoselic learned the hard way when he threw his bass up in the air to be “cool” and instead, the thing came crashing down on his skull and he passed out for a minute or two. Yea, real cool.
#3: Justin’s reaction to Britney kissing Madonna. The kiss itself was pretty much no big deal, but the look on JT’s face is priceless. It’s like fire could burst out of his eyeballs at any second. Little did he know she would soon look like this.
#2: Fiona Apple loses her shit. The infamous “This world is bullshit” quote….a rambling, nonsensical speech, but I still think Fiona’s cooler than most of the chicks in music today.
#1: R Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet.” The guy peed on an under-age girl and then has the balls to get up on stage and perform this as a one-man-show? What is this even? Is it supposed to be funny, cause it is highly hysterical.
So, there you have it.
I doubt anything this spectacular will happen at this year’s event. I really can’t think of anything controversial happening at the VMA’s since Britney and Christina and Madonna’s threesome. But even though they’ve have been disappointing in recent years, I’ll probably still watch them anyway on September 9th, hoping for a crazy surprise.
Maybe Michael Jackson will do some more of the sucking face with a lucky lady? I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
