Celebdom is so unfair. We get used to entertainers — we crush on them, obsess over them, and follow their every move in tabloids (or in real life, if you’re stalkery). We actually invest in those actors, musicians, and singers! But Hollywood is fickle. Seemingly overnight, the world’s hottest stars can topple from their place on the top of the fame food chain, never to be seen or heard from again. And we’re left bereft, and confused, and wondering which curly-haired, pouty-mouthed blonde we can worship now that Ryan Phillippe can’t get hired anymore. Oh, was that just us?
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Musicians, celebrities and irrelevant D-Listers are gathering together once again this Sunday evening to celebrate the MTV Video Music Awards. Sure the VMAs are about music and videos and honoring future one-hit wonders (a-ha, anyone?), but really what they’re about is said stars and wannabees shocking us with their outfits…or lack there of.
The Grammys are where the music industry goes to class it up, but the VMAs are all about getting down. Like, nipple pasties down. We’ve picked out the skimpiest outfits to grace the VMAs white carpet over the years, scroll through the skin to see our number one skimpiest outfit.
Did we miss anyone? Tell us in the comments, and don’t forget to tune into the VMAs this Sunday night at 9/8c to see who leaves the house in next to nothing this year! Our money is on Best New Artist nominee Ke$ha – though maybe host Chelsea Handler will shock us with a little skin. We can’t wait!
