Lose Yourself in the Nostalgia of the 2003 MTV VMAs

Nicki Minaj PRAISES Taylor Swift After 2022 MTV VMAs

The year was 2003—and it was the kiss heard seen around the world.

Yes, we're referring to the showstopping performance at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards that saw Britney Spears, Madonna and Christina Aguilera hit the stage to sing "Like a Virgin" and "Hollywood," only to leave viewers talking for years to come when the "Material Girl" singer locked lips with each of her co-performers.

And though Britney and Madonna were the ones who took center stage (thanks to a cutaway shot of Britney's ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake—with whom she had split a year prior—looking on in the audience), let's not forget the "Genie in a Bottle" singer's presence also cemented an iconic moment in pop culture history.

However, despite it becoming quite a huge deal immediately afterward, Madonna simply didn't see why everyone was so hung up on the PDA.

"I've been oblivious until this moment," she said during an interview on The Oprah Winfrey Show just weeks later. "I had no idea that it was going to cause the ruckus that it caused. It was just a friendly kiss. I don't know why people are making such a big deal about it."

But the trio weren't the only ones that served a notable moment that year. After all, Beyoncé hit the stage for her first performance as a solo artist alongside the man who would later become her husband: Jay-Z.

And that's not all that happened that night. Keep reading for a look back at the 2003 VMAs.
