Think Madonna kissing Britney Spears at the '03 VMAs was surprising? Check out that plus nine other wacky moments from MTV Video Music Awards' history.
Madonna and Britney Kiss, 2003
Poor Christina Aguilera. Everyone seems to forget she was even on stage during the infamous Madonna makeout session. Must be because the camera cut away to Justin Timberlake's reaction right after Madge locked lips with the pre-breakdown Britney Spears. Regardless, Madonna managed to reference her own famous writhing-in-a-wedding-dress 1984 performance and once again remind us why she's the queen of outre VMAs moments.
Lady Gaga Bleeds For You, 2009
Lady Gaga is the queen of crazy stage outfits, so the fact that she wore a lace bunny mask at the start of her "Paparazzi" performance at the 2009 VMAs is par for the course. But she fully jumps down the rabbit hole when she her abdomen starts bleeding three minutes into the song.
The queen of bringing crazy moments to the VMAs, Lady Gaga walked the red carpet and accepted her moonman in a dress made of meat in 2010, then kicked off the 2011 VMAs as a man: her smoking, greasy-haired male alter-ego, Jo Calderone. Queen guitarist Brian May crashed Calderone's "You and I" performance mid-way for some super-sized shredding. Gaga stayed in character as Calderone all night, returning later in the show to present an award to Britney Spears, who had to fend off Calderone's testosterone-jacked advances to accept her moonman.
