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.

Joe Jackson Chemically Castrated Michael Jackson, Conrad Murray Claims

Late last month, Joe Jackson passed away at age 89 after a battle with cancer. 

In a new video that is making the rounds, the late Michael Jackson’s disgraced former doctor, Conrad Murray, has very harsh words for the late manager.

Among other things, Murray claims that Joe had Michael chemically castrated to preserve his voice through puberty.

Conrad murray video still

“Joe Jackson was one of the worst fathers to his children in history,” Murray claims in the video.

That’s a very tall order. Though one supported by statements from Michael Jackson and some of his siblings over the years. We’ll get into that in a moment.

“The cruelty expressed by Michael that he experienced at the hand of his father…” Murray says, trailing off.

Once you’ve heard someone tell you a story of how they were abused, it can haunt you, even after both the victim and the alleged abuser have passed away.

“Particularly his bad treatment, and moreover,” Murray says, preparing to make his explosive claim. “The fact that he was chemically castrated to maintain his high-pitched voice is beyond words.”

If true, that is certainly “beyond words.” Murray has made this chemical castration claim before.

Specifically, he wrote in his book that Joe forced Michael, at the age of 12, to receive hormone injections to put an end to his acne and to prevent his voice from changing.

“I knew and cared for Michael very well,” Murray asserts.

Murray continues: “And he told me of the many sufferings at the hands of his father that he [experienced].”

“It was dreadful,” Murray says. “Beyond imagination and words.”

There are some people who believe that, no matter the man’s deeds in life, it is wrong to speak ill of the dead.

Murray is clearly not one of those people.

“I would not shed a single tear over the passing of this cruel and evil man,” Murray announces.

“Joe Jackson,” he continues, addressing the late manager. “It is said that only the good die young.”

Joe Jackson was 89 at the time of his passing.

Murray then declares: “I hope Joe Jackson finds redemption in hell.”

Those are certainly some strong words, and Joe Jackson is not alive to defend himself.

It should be noted, though, that there’s more than just Murray’s word for some of this.

Michael Jackson spoke on Oprah, first back in the early 1990s, with stories of horrifying abuse endured at the hands of his father, who also worked as his manager.

He described emotional abuse, incessant rehearsals, as well as physical violence. Specifically, Michael said that Joe would sit holding a belt during his children’s rehearsals, and “he would tear you up” if you made an error.

Joe Jackson even admitted to having used violence on his children, including the use of switches and belts, but objected to the characterization of these incidents of abuse as “beatings.”

Notably, many accused of abuse may happily admit to evil deeds, but dislike the use of certain words to describe them.

But while Murray’s claims about Joe Jackson’s behavior as a father and manager are backed up by Michael’s own words in interviews, the claims about chemical castration are … another matter.

Additionally, many would question Murray’s credibility, given that a lot of people still believe that he is at least partially responsible for Michael Jackson’s 2009 death.

Regardless of what one thinks about Murray or Joe, however, it seems safe to say that his grandchildren knew a different man than the one described by Murray and Michael.

Paris Jackson mourned Joe in a heartfelt farewell message describing his final moments, including her exacting a promise that he would visit her as a spirit.

Not everyone believes that the dead can visit the living, and even some who do believe that a person’s evil deeds might prevent them from doing so.

Prince Jackson also penned a tribute to his late grandfather, defending Joe against allegations of abuse.

Promising to make a video on the subject, Prince says: “He raised these kids right.”

It sounds safe to say that Prince’s relationship with Joe was very different than his father’s, though even Michael eventually seemed to forgive Joe.

Regardless of what fans think about Joe’s actions in life, we would strongly discourage anyone from writing hurtful messages to his grandchildren about his behavior.

His grandchildren are innocent, and upsetting them is not going to give you the sense of vindication that you seek.

Michael Jackson: La Toya Jackson Hears His Final Thoughts on Hollywood Medium

The third season finale of Hollywood Medium aired, and Tyler Henry sat down with La Toya Jackson to speak of the tragic passing of late music legend Michael Jackson.

It has been nine years, and a number of lingering questions have weighed heavily on La Toya’s heart and soul. 

As you’ll see in the video below, she’s sitting down with everyone’s favorite adorable Medium for a very serious conversation about Michael’s final thoughts.

La toya jackson and tyler henry on hollywood medium

Tyler Henry speaks of Michael Jackson, saying:

“He’s acknowledging that he should not have been left alone at a time when he was left alone.”

The circumstances of Michael’s passing have been a source of speculation and uncertainty for nine years, now.

“And that’s coming in. And that’s what he’s putting a lot of emphasis on.”

But it isn’t La Toya who is to blame.

“The person who should have been there to monitor wasn’t monitoring.”

Henry says that the message communicated to him was that the person charged with looking after Michael had abandoned him.

“And it’s like ‘I trusted you to be there, I trusted the role that you were supposed to have to help me, and you left.'”

La toya jackson on hollywood medium

La Toya asks: “Did something happen while he was abandoned?”

Tyler Henry answers, saying:

“It’s the interesting thing with this … because I feel like, when he was abandoned, that would have been an ideal time for him to try to reach 911, to try to call for help, to try to get help.”

This is when he begins to describe Michael’s final thoughts.

“At this time, he realized that something was wrong while he was alive.”

He clarifies:

“And that’s when he was conscious and realizing something’s wrong here.”

But again, he laments — or rather, says that Michael laments — that there was no one there to help.

“But I just don’t feel like he had someone to, like, say ‘hey, I’m having a medical emergency.'”

La Toya summarizes:

“Right, no one was there to save him, yeah, okay.”

Tyler henry on hollywood medium

Tyler continues, this time lapsing into first person.

“And so after I realize that something is going wrong in here, there is this feeling of … oh, this medication kicks in.”

But those medications, Tyler says, robbed Michael of his ability to seek help.

“I actually become affected by this medicine.”

And then he describes a powerful feeling of panic.

“So it’s kind of like, a feeling of like, oh my god, what do I do, I don’t want to waste time, like clearly something is happening.”

He says that it happened quickly.

“And this is happening very fast.”

La toya jackson on hollywood medium

La Toya responds to her illuminating experience with Tyler, syaing:

“I think what hurts more than anything else is that, not only is there a need for someone to be there for him, but there was a trusted person … and that person wasn’t there.”

Even though she’s mourned and processed Michael’s death, she’s still crushed. She will always grieve him.

“And just to hear that, really, it tears you apart.”

Even to this day, she’s heartbroken over it.

“I wanted to just cry.”

We hope that Tyler Henry’s reading was able to bring her closure.

Tyler henry and la toya jackson on hollywood medium

Obviously, Hollywood Medium is sometimes controversial with certain groups.

Some believe that Tyler Henry is perpetrating a fraud and should not be speaking to these people, no matter how much closure and peace it may bring them.

Others believe that he is very real, but that his readings are the work of dark forces (the devil) and that mediums should not be “glorified” on television.

But no matter what you believe, it’s hard to see that he’s doing any harm. In fact, he seems to bring a lot of peace and closure to a lot of people.

Check out the video of his conversation with La Toya. She clearly feels validated by his words.

Dr. Conrad Murray Incriminating Himself in Jackson Death

The man at the center of the investigation into Michael Jackson’s death, Dr. Conrad Murray, is in the LAPD’s crosshairs thanks to his own comments.

According to TMZ, which cites law enforcement sources, Dr. Conrad Murray’s statements to police on the Saturday following Jackson’s June 25 death of cardiac arrest contained several incriminating disclosures about his involvement.

Some members of law enforcement are surprised Jackson’s personal physician spoke in the first place and equally surprised about what he volunteered.

The LAPD is already treating Jackson’s death as a homicide and there have been multiple conversations between its detectives and the L.A. County District Attorney’s office, although the D.A. has not opened its own formal investigation.

Michael Jackson Casket

As more facts become known, the wide-ranging LAPD and DEA investigation into what killed Michael Jackson (1958-2009) is centering on his personal physician.

While some of the toxicology results are not in yet, important test results already completed point to the anesthesia Propofol as the primary cause of death.

Law enforcement sources say the evidence is clear – the use of the hospital-grade anesthesia was the primary reason Michael Jackson’s heart stopped beating.

So far, Dr. Murray’s lawyer has neither confirmed nor denied on the record if his client administered Propofol to Jackson the day he died. We’ll keep you posted.

Crazy Michael Jackson Rumor of the Day: Paris, Prince and Blanket Want Janet Jackson to Raise Them

Just when you think OK! Magazine cannot lower the celebrity gossip bar any further, then come out with a new cover that proves you wrong. Kudos, guys.

While Michael Jackson’s mom, Katherine Jackson, was named guardian of the three children of the late singer in his will, it’s Michael’s sister Janet Jackson who has emerged in the eyes of many as their favored caregiver.

“All three want Janet Jackson to read to them at night,” a Jackson family friend says. “They just melt into her arms when she walks into the house.”

So much so, the magazine reports, that adorable Prince and Paris Jackson, 12 and 11, plus little Blanket, 7, have reached out to Janet and said …

Be Our Mommy!

“Janet has completely bonded with those children in the last two weeks,” the friend continues. “She has been the rock for [Paris, Prince and Blanket].”

“It’s clear to everyone that they are looking to her for comfort and guidance.”

It’s clear to everyone? Really? No one’s doubting Janet Jackson is probably an awesome aunt, but do the kids even know her? Do they love Katherine less?

We also enjoy the trumping up of Debbie Rowe and her role in all this, as if she is trying to break up the family. While that would be good drama, it’s untrue.

One semi-legitimate point raised is that at 79, caring for three kids might be too much for Katherine Jackson, a problem eased by Janet Jackson’s presence.

“Janet is not only willing to raise those children, she is also the only relative of Michael’s who really knows how to protect them,” an insider tells OK!.

“Janet knows the value of a private life and knows how to keep her personal life out of the news. She is determined to do that for Michael’s children. She says that he would want no less for them, pointing out how far he went to shelter them.”

It does sound nice. But just in case you forgot the publication that is reporting this, here’s a look back at their previous two Michael Jackson covers …

Video of 1984 Michael Jackson Pepsi Ad Accident Released

Never-before-seen footage of Michael Jackson’s awful Pepsi commercial accident, filmed in L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium on January 27, 1984, has been released.

The Us Weekly clip shows one take where the singer’s pyrotechnics exploded as planned – after Michael Jackson descended the stairs and began performing.

On the sixth take, fireworks erupted too early, igniting the singer’s head in flames. Jackson was at first unaware he was on fire, and continued dancing.

Many say he was never the same after the accident, during which he suffered second and third-degree burns on his scalp and body, and after which some believe he developed an addiction to painkillers and an obsession with plastic surgery.

His drug addiction ever since that day has been well documented, and has become the focal point of a DEA and LAPD investigation into who supplied the singer with the dangerous substances that may have contributed to his demise.

Follow the jump to see the video of Michael Jackson’s Pepsi commercial. Be forewarned, it shows him after his hair is clearly on fire and is somewhat disturbing:

LAPD Treating Michael Jackson Death as a Homicide, Ramping Up Investigation of Dr. Conrad Murray

Was Michael Jackson murdered?

La Toya Jackson’s inflammatory statement from earlier in the week may not be all that far-fetched. Multiple law enforcement sources say the LAPD is already treating the superstar’s death as a homicide, and are focusing on Dr. Conrad Murray.

The evidence points to the anesthesia Propofol as the primary cause of his death. As TMZ reported, vials of Propofol were found in Michael Jackson’s home.

Law enforcement sources say there is already “plenty of powerful evidence” linking Dr. Conrad Murray as the person who administered the drug to Jackson.

That evidence includes items found in Jackson’s house, including Propofol, an IV stand and oxygen tank. Murray was Michael Jackson’s personal physician.

The LAPD has had “multiple conversations” with the L.A. County District Attorney’s office, even though the case has not been formally presented to the D.A.

Dr. Conrad MurrayJackson, M.

Dr. Murray’s lawyer, Ed Chernoff, has neither confirmed nor denied if his client gave Propofol to Jackson. Dr. Conrad Murray has not been charged with a crime.

Several pharmaceutical companies have been contacted by the DEA in the case as authorities close in on how the Propofol got into the body of the late singer.

The vials of Propofol found in Jackson’s home all have lot numbers. The DEA contacted Teva Pharmaceuticals – which manufactured one of the vials found there.

Teva sells Propofol to medical distributors, who then turn around and sell the vials to hospitals and doctors. The DEA hopes a trail will lead to some answers.

Dr. Arnold Klein, a friend of the singer who treated him over the years, is also under investigation. It is not believed he ever administered Propofol, but the L.A. Coroner’s Office has subpoenaed Jackson’s medical records from Klein.
