Top Five VMA Moments
Eminem Meets Bruno's Butt
The VMAs have become synonymous with bare bottoms. From the original "Butt Man" Howard Stern to shock-rocker Marilyn Manson, we've seen more rear end than we'd like to admit. But not nearly as much as Eminem got in this up-close-and-personal look at Bruno, aka Sacha Baron Cohen, during this top VMA moment. We're told it was a planned stunt, but Eminem's reaction still has us wondering.
Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley Kiss
In an attempt to prove their love, the late Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley shared what was probably the most uncomfortable on-screen kiss of all time. The royal relationship between the King of Pop and the daughter of the King of Rock wouldn't last, and many point to this moment as the beginning of the end.
Madonna and Britney Spears Kiss
Kris Novoselic Takes a Bass to the Face
While the false-start of 'Rape Me' at the '92 VMAs may be Nirvana's lasting VMA legacy, it's Kris Novoselic getting hit in the face by his own bass (at 4:14) that most people remember from that performance. It may be unfortunate for him, but luckily for us, we can see both top VMA moments in this video.
Kanye Interrupts Taylor Swift
Interruptions of acceptance speeches have become a tradition at the VMAs. And while it's not as colorful as Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys interrupting R.E.M. on behalf of Spike Jonze for Best Director in '94, Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech for Female Video of the Year has become a pivotal moment in each of their respective careers. The fact it's still the talk of the awards show a year later makes it our top VMA moment.
