Butts, Boobs, Interruptions + Drag: Crazy VMA Moments That You May Have Forgotten About

The MTV Video Music Awards never fail to provide us with a vast array of WTF?! moments. For example, Miley Cyrus’ foam finger and twerking combo will forever be ingrained in our minds. And between her controversial “Like a Virgin” performance in 1984 and her threesome kiss with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera in 2003, Madonna is a VMA legend. Tragically, these moments often overshadow slightly less insane (but still totally nutty) incidents. What about those other crazy escapades that didn’t get as much headline love? Some folks may have forgotten, but we have not.

Do you remember when Lady Gaga dressed like a dude for the whole show? Or the time Fiona Apple gave it to us straight with her “The world is bullsh-t” speech? We do. Today let’s relive all of the speech interruptions, surprise performances and comebacks that made the VMAs absurd…but were eclipsed by other moments that were just a little bit more absurd. Don’t forget to tune into MTV this Sunday, August 24th, at 9/8c to see what goes down at the VMAs this year!
