Most Iconic VMA Moments: Madonna Swaps Spit With Britney and Christina

Welcome back to Celebuzz’s Most Iconic VMA Moments showdown. In anticipation of of the 2013 MTV VMA ceremony on August 25, we want you to help us name the most memorable VMA scandal ever. Two weeks ago, we asked you to vote for your favorite VMA performance. (Britney Spears’ 2001 performance of “I’m a Slave 4 U” won in that category.) Last week, we asked you to vote for your favorite VMA fashion moment. (Congrats, once again, to Britney’s 2002 dominatrix-meets-biker-chick look!) Now, it’s all about the drama! You may vote once per hour.

Is Madonna‘s on-stage makeout session with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera the most scandalous VMA moment ever? Let us know by voting below – and then read on for a GIF-filled look back at their insane 2003 performance.

Remember That Time Madonna Made Out With Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera on Stage?

Of course you do.

And who could forget how MTV cut to Justin Timberlake‘s insta-classic reaction?

Oh, and Madonna also kissed Christina Aguilera, but no one really cared as much for some reason?

Without a doubt, this was the most talked about moment of the 2003 VMAs. It may have been the most talked about pop culture “event” of the year. Some would argue it is the most iconic VMA moment of all time. Do you agree? Lady Gaga certainly does:

So why did we not include this moment in our performances poll? Well, though it is technically a performance, let’s be real: no one really cares about the part where Britney and Christina singing “Like a Virgin.” Also, it’s not like anyone remembers that eventually Missy Elliott ran out to rap a few bars. This performance is iconic because of that single moment. The controversy was all because of The Kiss(es). The headlines that followed, the jaws that still, to this day, remain on the floor… all because of the infamous lip-locking. But beware, dear readers, for sometimes this level of notoriety comes at a price:

Don’t forget to vote for your favorite scandal above. Remember, you can vote once per hour. May the most scandalous moment win!

10 Things You Missed on the Emmys

Last night, everyone in Hollywood got real glammed up to celebrate the very best of television (and Netflix). You can see the full winners list here, but these are the 10 things you really missed last night.

Merritt Wever’s Acceptance Speech

Merritt Wever was the first in a night full of upset Emmy wins. Her shockingly short acceptance speech – “Thank you so very much. Um, I gotta go, bye.” – was an excitingly candid moment from someone who was clearly not expecting to win.

Carrie Underwood’s Beatles Tribute?

In a night full of of tributes, Don Cheadle and Carrie Underwood staged a tonally confusing tribute to television’s role in reporting John F. Kennedy’s death and also the Beatles?

This Dude

Okay, sure, it was definitely staged. But this guy won the Emmys telecast.

Will Ferrell and Sons

Joking that Helen Mirren and Maggie Smith had dropped out at the last minute, Will Ferrell presented the awards for best comedy and drama series with his children on stage, saying he couldn’t find a babysitter in time.

Stephen Colbert Finally Got His Emmy

Stephen Colbert and Co. ended The Daily Show‘s decade-long winning streak, winning the Emmy for Outstanding Variety Series. Colbert thanked Jon Stewart in his acceptance speech, but also went on to say: “They say it’s an honor just to be nominated, but it’s also a lie. Winning is way better.” Congratulations, Stephen.

Kevin Spacey Has No Time for Cameras

He may not have won for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, but Kevin Spacey stole the show with his reaction to the reaction camera.

Elton John’s Jacket

For a tribute to Liberace, Elton John donned one of his Captain Fantastic-era jackets and sang “Home Again,” a song he said reminded him of Liberace. It was Elton John’s first time performing at the Emmys.

Diahann Carroll and Kerry Washington

Diahann Carroll, the first-ever African-American Emmy nominee, and Kerry Washington shared the stage to present the Emmy for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series. While Washington may have looked a bit uncomfortable as Carroll heaped praise on her, it was a truly historical moment between two trailblazers. Though Washington didn’t win, she was the first black woman nominated as a lead actress since 1995.

Gary Holds Selina’s Bag

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Tony Hale

As Julia Louis-Dreyfus accepted her fourth Emmy, she was joined on stage by Tony Hale, who plays her Veep character’s ever-faithful personal aide, Gary. Hale also won an Emmy for his performance on Veep last night.

Edie Falco’s Tribute to James Gandolfini

Having played his wife for six seasons of The Sopranos, Edie Falco delivered an emotional tribute to James Gandolfini, saying: “You all knew James Gandolfini the actor. I was lucky enough to know Jim the man. For 10 years as his close colleague and his pretend life-partner, and for many more years as his friend. And it’s Jim, the man, the very dear man, that I will miss most of all.”

Olivia Wilde Brings Her Itty Bitty Baby Bump To The Courage In Journalism Awards!

ZOMG is she showing?!?

A tiny bit!

Olivia Wilde showed up to the Courage In Journalism Awards in Beverly Hills on Tuesday wearing a floral print Cushnie Et Ochs dress that was just tight enough to display her developing fetus.

Along with her dress, the future Mrs. Jason Sudeikis sported a glistening Clelia clutch, a Stephen Webster cuff and ombre Jimmy Choo shoes — but her most noticeable accessory was that gorgeous pregnancy glow!

We think it’s safe to say pregnancy suits her!

Most Iconic VMA Moments: Rose McGowan Lets It ALL Hang Out in 1998

Welcome back to Celebuzz’s Most Iconic VMA Moments showdown. In anticipation of of the 2013 MTV VMA ceremony on August 25, we want you to help us name the most iconic VMA fashion moment ever. Last week, we asked you to vote for your favorite VMA performance. (Britney Spears’ 2001 performance of “I’m a Slave 4 U” won in that category.) This week, it’s all about the clothing (or lack thereof). Return next week for a new round of voting about the biggest VMA scandal. You may vote once per hour.

Is Rose McGowan‘s barely-there mesh outfit the most iconic VMA fashion moment ever? Vote below, and read on for a nostalgic look back at Rose’s jaw-dropping red carpet look.

Rose McGown Wore Practically Nothing to the 1998 VMAs, Upstaged Even Marilyn Manson

There isn’t much to say about Rose McGowan’s shocking red carpet appearance at the 1998 VMAs, because she wasn’t wearing much of an outfit. It was so outrageous, we can’t even show it uncensored.

But here’s something to consider: Somehow, Rose managed to out-shock-factor her then-boyfriend, Marilyn Manson, who was, at the time, the most polarizing figure in popular music. If you can, peel your eyes away from Rose’s outfit, and take a look at Mr. Manson. On any other day, his ensemble would have turned more heads than Lil Kim‘s purple pasty outfit did the following year. But standing next to Rose, it’s easy to see why his outrageousness was eclipsed.

The fact of the matter is, if you search for “worst VMA outfits of all time,” you will probably see Rose near the top of every list. However, the point is not whether you like this look or not. We’re still writing about this “dress” fifteen years later, which is probably exactly what Rose had in mind when she selected it. What do you say, dear readers? Most iconic VMA outfit of all time?

Don’t forget to cast your vote for the most iconic VMA outfit above. Again, you may vote once per hour. Return each day this week for a new feature on each of the outfits in our poll.

Read our feature on Lil’ Kim’s iconic purple pasty outfit from 1999.

Read our feature on Lady Gaga’s iconic meat dress from 2010.

Read our feature on Britney Spears’ iconic dominatrix get-up from 2002.

Read our feature on Nicki Minaj’s iconic Harajuku Barbie ensemble from 2011.
