30 Memorable VMA moments

Countdown to the VMA’s!!

Top 30 Memorable VMA moments and performances to celebrate the 30th year of VMAs!

As the 2013 VMAs celebrate it’s 30th year in Jay-Z’s Brooklyn Barclays Center, we must take a moment to reflect on some of it’s most memorable moments and performances. From Gaga’s arrival in an egg to Kanye admitting and raises a toast to him sometimes being an a*$hole, the Video Music Awards always leaves us with something to talk about for years to come!

Check out MY 10 Memorable VMA moments and performances… in no particular order:-)

But of course I must begin with Mr. West!

Kanye West, Taylor Swift

The beautiful Taylor Swift was in complete shock when Kanye West chose to interrupt sharing that “Single Ladies” was the best video of all time. Although his thought had great points… he will be forever in the hall of shame and a very memorable VMA moment.

Who can forget the infamous kiss… and not just any ordinary kiss but one that consist of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and the one and only Madonna!

Oh Lil Mama… She was feeling “Empire State of Mind” so much she allowed the music to move her right up on the stage during the performance! The best part of this is remembering how Jay-Z gave her the nice pat on her shoulder with a polite dismiss yet she remained until the performance was complete. Still makes me laugh thinking of it!

King B and the beautiful baby bump:-) Beyonce’ announcing to the world on the VMA’s that she is with child:-)

Eminem asked for the “Real Slim Shady” to please stand up by inviting hundreds of bleach blond guys to follow him during his performance in 2000.

Diana Ross literally took a pat to Lil Kim’s boob as Lil Kim wore a pasty to match her outfit in the year of 1999.

Lady GaGa outrageous-ness… From arriving in an egg to wearing a meat dress… she makes sure you remember her! I just wonder what her opening performance and costume will be this year!

Pink demonstrates flying acrobatics while performing “Sober” in 2009.

The late and great Michael Jackson puts on a 15 minute performance with costume changes and smooth criminal moves like no other!!
