MTV Video Music Awards: 13 Best Performances of All Time!

The VMAs aren’t like other award shows. 

But unlike when someone you met on Tinder tells you they’re not like other girls/guys, in this case, the claim is legit.

You never know what might happen at the VMAs.

Kanye might interrupt someone’s acceptance speech.

Nicki Minaj might call out Miley Cyrus.

Kanye might interrupt everyone’s acceptance speeches.

You really never know.

In fact, the only thing that’s certain is: there will be some amazing performances.

Check out the gallery below to relive some of the most unforgettable musical moments from 32 years of the VMAs.

1. Beyonce: “Love on Top,” 2011

Beyonce crushed it with her performance of “Love on Top” in 2011. It didn’t hurt that she capped things off by confirming rumors that she and Jay Z were expecting their first child.

2. Madonna: “Like a Virgin,” 1984

The Material Girl was just exploding onto the scene when the VMAs first started confusing parents in 1984. To give you an idea of how different things were then: Herbie Hancock beat out Michael Jackson as the night’s top winner.

3. Britney Spears: “Slave 4 U,” 2011

Britney Spears cemented her place as a VMA icon with her 2001 performance. Giant live snakes are great for when you’re trying to make a lasting impression.

4. Taylor Swift: “You Belong With Me,” 2009

Later that night, Taylor would become an unwilling participant in the most notorious moment in VMAs history. But when she crooned one of her signature tunes to a subway full of fans, she was still just the country girl with a broken heart full of hits.

5. Eminem: “The Real Slim Shady”/”Way I Am,” 2000

There were thousands of Eminem wannabes in 2000. But as Mr. Mathers proved in his unforgettable 2000 medley, there’s only one real Slim Shady.

6. Diddy, Faith Evans, Sting: “I’ll Be Missing You”

Diddy’s tribute to the late, great Notorious B.I.G. became a massive success in 1997. It also made for one of the most unforgettable performances in VMA history.

Prince Fans Destroy Justin Timberlake for Halftime "Tribute"

Justin Timberlake performed a medley of his most beloved hits at halftime of Super Bowl 52.

Did you catch the dance-filled act?

Relive it HERE if not.

The 13-plus minute performance featured Timberlake belting out such hits as “Can’t Stop This Feeling” and “Gone,” but the focus a day later is on the minute or two during which he sat at a piano and played a cover of Prince’s “I Would Die 4 U.”

What a nice tribute to the late musician, who made his home in the Super Bowl host city of Minnesota, right?

WRONG, many Prince fans are now saying. So very, very, very, VERY wrong.

Scroll down and all around to find out why: 

1. May He Rest in Peace

May he rest in peace
Prince, of course, died in April of 2016. He was famous for his Minneosta mansion and he performed at halftime of the Super Bowl in 2007, leaving many to assume Timberlake would cover a song of his this year.

2. NO HOLOGRAM, JT!

No hologram jt
A song would have been great, but this is where the controversy started, with talk that Timberlake would sing alongside a Prince hologram during his act. Many years ago, Prince said the following about the use of such a device: “That’s the most demonic thing imaginable. Everything is as it is, and it should be. If I was meant to jam with Duke Ellington, we would have lived in the same age. That whole virtual reality thing… it really is demonic. And I am not a demon.”

3. Easy, Folks

Easy folks
Long-time Prince friend Shiela E. said prior to the show that rumors of Timberlake using a hologram were false. She assured everyone this would NOT take place.

4. Okay, Phew

Okay phew
Social media users felt a lot better after reading the message.

5. And She Was Sort of Right

And she was sort of right
Check out the above photo. It’s not a hologram. It’s just a projection of Prince of a giant screen. But try parsing that difference to loyal Prince supporters, who were far from happy about Timberlake’s stunt.

6. Did This Count as a Hologram?

Did this count as a hologram
Yes, it might as well have in the eyes of critics who took to Twitter and blasted Timberlake.

Justin Timberlake Halftime Performance: Grade It!

Justin Timberlake rocked our bodies, cried us a river and made sure the feelings didn’t stop at halftime of Super Bowl 52.

The beloved pop star was the featured act at the mid-point of the game between the Patriots and Eagles on Sunday night, as he was introduced by good friend Jimmy Fallon and started his act underneath the field.

“Haters gonna say it’s fake,” he then said many times, starting his performance with a brief rendition of “Filthy.”

From there, Timberlake danced his way on to the field, rocking a red handkerchief around his neck that became the talk of Twitter.

He sang “Rock Your Body.” He broke into “SexyBack.” He sampled “Gone.” He played all the hits, basically.

Then, at one point, he sat at a piano and covered Prince, who tragically passed away last year from a drug overdose and who made his home in Minnesota.

(The Super Bowl was played in Minnesota, it’s worth noting.)

“Minneapolis, this one’s for you,” he said, prior to a few images of Prince being projected on a giant screen.

Impressively, lights across Minnesota then lit up in Prince’s trademark color of purple. It was pretty cool.

The performance culminated in a rendition of “Rock Your Body,” which found Timberlake jumping into the crowd and telling a young fan to snap a selfie of him and the superstar.

Overall, there was a whole lot of dancing, which is what Timberlake does as well as anyone, of course.

The sound was off nearly throughout the entire act, but it’s possible this was even done on purpose… lest millions of viewers hear Timberlake wheezing for 20 minutes after essentially running a 5K or so.

There was no Janet Jackson, as had been rumored.

Much to the chagrin of NSync fans everywhere, Timberlake’s halftime show did not include a reunion with his former bandmates, either.

We didn’t see Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, Lance Bass or JC Chasez.

How did JT stack up against Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga and past halftime acts?

Give him a grade below:

Justin Timberlake Announces New Album: The Internet Reacts!

For some strange reason, it’s 2018, and Justin Timberlake is intent on releasing some more sub-par music.

In fact, Justin will even headline the Superbowl LII on February 4 to prove to the naysayers that, even at 36-years-old, he’s still a force to be reckoned with.

Timberlake released a sneak preview of the album in the form of a video he shared on Youtube in the early hours of Tuesday morning. 

“This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other album I’ve ever written where I’m from, and it’s personal,” Timberlake says in the bizarre clip. 

“It feels like mountains, trees, campfires, like wild west, like now,” a female voice says in the teaser.

“Man of the Woods” is the title of the album and it’s scheduled to be released to the masses on February 2. Hey, if the record is that bad, at least it will get some free promotion. 

In any case, the world of Twitter was divided on the news. Some wanted him to disappear, some wanted him to stop trying to be like Lady Gaga, and some wanted him to give up the music and make a sequel to Model Behavior instead. 

Have a look at the best reaction to the news below!

 

1. He’s No Lady Gaga

Timberlake album reaction 1
One fan seems to think that Justin claiming the album is personal is copying Lady Gaga’s Joanne. Aren’t all albums personal in their own right?!

2. Boob Gate

Timberlake album reaction 2
Better get digging, Justin!

3. Model Behavior: The Sequel!

Timberlake album reaction 3
We’re not sure Justin would be able to appear in the sequel as a lead. He may be better served as one of the parents.

4. Mumford and What?

Timberlake album reaction 4
Yeah, we’re not digging this one.

5. Mother Knows Best

A trip for two to the woods…

Um, we’re not sure what to make of this one. There are similarities.

Sources Speak on “Needy, Annoying” Jessica Biel, Possible Break Up with Justin Timberlake

Jessica Biel is gorgeous, beautiful and sexy.

According to those that know the actress well, however, she’s also needy and annoying.

Rumors of a break up between Biel and longtime boyfriend Justin Timberlake have grown stronger this week. Multiple insiders have confirmed as much to The New York Daily News.

“Things don’t look good for them right now – they’ve hit a really rocky spot,” said a source close to Timberlake, adding that issues began during a trip to Vegas JT took with his friends in February because “they got into a huge screaming match over the phone about how she’s always ‘checking up’ on him. She’s extremely needy and is always keeping tabs on him.”

While Lance Bass labels Biel as “fun to be around,” others within Timberlake’s circle of pals don’t agree.

“All his friends think she’s really annoying,” said an insider. “She’s always trying to be one of the guys. She and Justin have no chemistry.”

We don’t know either side of this couple well, but our staff has often debated this same theory. Timberlake is one of the most charismatic, outgoing stars in Hollywood. He’s the kind of guy that tries to mount his girlfriend at a Lakers game.

Biel, conversely, comes across as far more serious.

Fortunately, she also comes across as naked in the movie Powder Blue, so… uhhh… we lost our train of thought.

Lindsay Lohan Says Twitter Account Was Hacked; Denies Accusing Justin Timberlake of Cheating

Bored senseless with no career to speak of, Lindsay Lohan posts a lot of inane things on Twitter, including pictures of herself in various stages of undress.

But she did not Tweet judgment on Justin Timberlake, she claims.

Earlier this week, a Justin-related Tweet on Lindsay’s page read “where’s jb cheater” also had a so-dark-you-can’t-see-anything picture attached to it.

That photo purportedly showed the pop-R&B star living it up on the dance floor at an NYC hot spot. Not that you can tell what’s going on at all in it.

Lohan Twitter

HOW TWEET IT IS: The message in question, from “sevinnyne6126” to Justin Timberlake. Of course, “jb” refers to Timberlake’s girlfriend Jessica Biel.

In any case, Lindsay Lohan says she didn’t do it, and claims that the accusatory Tweet was authored by an impostor who somehow hacked her account.

“I don’t Twitter about my personal life,” the former actress wrote on (obviously) Twitter. “Let alone someone else’s life! I learned my lesson some time ago.”

“Stop trying to get onto my Twitter page whoever you are! Its extremely creepy!!!” the ex-girlfriend of Samantha Ronson pleaded, followed moments later by, “Just trying to clear the air! I’m tired of changing my password every other day!”

Just STFU and stick to posting topless pics of yourself on there, Linds. Go with what you’re good at, and most familiar with. That way you’ll never go wrong.

LiLo-Blow

Do you believe that Lindsay Lohan’s Twitter was hacked?

Yes, she would never do that.
No, she’s totally lying.
Who cares, she’s useless!
