There are so many VMA moments to talk about: the Kanye West, Tayor Swift incident, Tommy Lee and Kid Rock, Xtina performing with Fred Durst and so may more. I have complied my five favs and posted the videos for you to enjoy. Please check them out and them tell us what your favorite VMA moments are!

Marilyn Manson the beautiful People performance. Need I say more. I mean seeing him walk around with his butt hanging out is enough to make this a crazy moment!

Nirvana starting off playing “Rape Me.” I watched a VMA show on MTV and they said that it was unplanned and totally freaked the producers out. Obviously it wouldn’t have been appropriate. It is one of my favs because Nirvana was clearly pissed off and they don’t play! And sadly 2 years later, Kurt Cobain died. So aside from MTV Unplugged, this was their last live MTV performance. You can also see video I posted of Krist Novoselic throwing his bass in the air, which falls on his face and knocks him out. Nice.

The Madonna, Christina, Britney moment. This is not my favorite because of the kissing, but instead of how they zoomed in on Justin Timberlake’s face right after. Talk about pressure!

Courtney Love throwing her compact at Madonna while Kurt Loder interviewed her. I did not have cable as a kid and was NOT allowed to watch MTV. However I was at my grandparents house for the VMA’s that year and I remember thinking 1-what a nut job Courtney was, and 2-I was missing out on great TV! I think being sheltered led to my obsession with celebrities and led to my job as a blogger.

And then of course, Eminem and his clones. There was nothing like seeing a zillion Eminem’s walking around. Talk about an entrance!

So these are my favorites, tell me yours in the comments! I can’t wait to see what happens this year!

    I was so mad at Kanye he was a total jerk, Marilyn Mason gives me the creeps, but I like his music Sorry!
    I adore Nirvana, Kurt Cobain was and forever will be one of the best grunge performers, hate the Madonna thing so dumb, although I felt sorry for her on that interview along Courtney Love and Eminem, What can I said, he is the real slim shady!!

    Florence and the Machines totally dominated the MTV VMAs! Dog Days Are Over is quite a catchy song and it sounds quite a bit better than the songs played on pop radio today.
