The downright sexy performance solidified Britney as the leading pop princess and also catapulted her to international stardom. The respect and awe she received after the performance was incredible – and well deserved!

The MTV Video Music Awards will be celebrating its 30th anniversary this Sunday (August 25) so I’ve decided to look back throughout the decades to recap one of music’s wildest award shows out there.
From Lady Gaga’s meat dress to Britney Spears breakout “Oops…” performance, there’s a lot that has happened over the last 30 years. Let’s take a look back at some of the craziest OMG moments, appearances and performances in MTV VMA history!
15. Krist Novoselic Gets Hit With His Bass During Nirvana performance (1992)
During the band’s performance of “Lithium,” Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic thought it was a good idea to throw his bass up in the air. Gravity wasn’t on his side when the guitar landed right on his head. Ouch!
14. Rage Against The Machine’s Tim Commerford Climbs On Scaffolding (2000)
RATM’s bassist Tim Commerford was so pissed that his band lost the Best Rock Video to Limp Bizit, that he started to climb on the stage’s scaffolding until security had to get him down.
13. Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” Clone Performance (2000)
This performance was pretty epic, as a sea of Slim Shady clones (with peroxide blonde hair, obviously) gathered inside the VMA Radio City Music Hall venue!
12. Courtney Love Ambushing Madonna’s Interview (1995)
A drunk Courtney Love thought it was a good idea to intrude on Madonna’s VMA interview, which the Queen of Pop was clearly not too pleased about. Love even throws her makeup compact to try to get her attention!
11. Madonna’s Glamourous “Vogue” Performance (1990)
Madonna’s Marie Antoinette-inspired “Vogue” performance was definitely one for the books! It was over-the-top, super-animated and solidified her as the reigning Queen of Pop. Bow down!

Hey, y’all – Britney Spears just premiered a new single! “Ooh La La”, off The Smurfs 2 soundtrack, is a perfect pop gem fit for a kids’ movie. The track, produced by Bonnie McKee and Dr. Luke, sounds a lot like Femme Fatale’s “Seal It With A Kiss” combined with Madonna inspiration and tons of bubblegum pop sweetness.

Today’s video throwback goes to my favorite Pop Princess: Ms. Britney Spears! Her video for her title track “Oops…” off her sophomore album Oops…I Did It Again was released in 2000 and show the future diva strutting in a seriously sexy lipstick-red catsuit.
The video is cheesy as it is fun while showing off a more mature Britney, and the song is catchy as hell.
