From Miley's twerk to Madonna's kiss: The most outrageous moments to date from the MTV VMAs
She ‘twerked’, stripped on stage and repeatedly licked her lips, but Miley Cyrus’ VMA appearance is just one of the many outrageous moments to emerge from the show.
There was no misguided foam finger involved in Madonna, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera’s 2003 three-way smooch, but that didn’t stop outraged parents across the US speaking out about their kiss.
And a full five years before Janet Jackson’s Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction, Lil Kim bared her left breast during the ceremony for the world to see.
But the unscripted moments speak for the VMAs’ notoriety as well.
And Eminem’s verbal bashing with Moby at the VMAs later became lyrical inspiration for his track ‘Without Me’.
