Are you a virgin to MTV's Video Music Awards? Five '80s moments to remember
MTV's Video Music Awards practically made Madonna back in 1984. Before rolling around on stage in a wedding dress during Like a Virgin, she was just another pretty face with a couple catchy songs. After the MTV VMAs, Madonna was a legend.
It's hard to believe that most of greatest momemts in MTV Video Music Awards history involve Madonna, but think about. Her Vogue performance. Her sloppy, French kiss with Britney Spears. Am I missing one? I gotta be missing one.
What's most important is that the MTV Video Music Awards return tonight at 9, telecast live on that network that used play ... ummm, what were they called? Oh yeah, MUSIC VIDEOS!
You can blow it off as shameless celebriteering if you want. But you'll miss what everyone will be talking about for the next few weeks if you do. Read my preview of tonight's event here. And then get ready for tonight's show. No wedding dress required.
