Freaky Friday Flashback

Happy Friday, y’all! The weekend’s almost here and that means it’s time for another Freaky Friday Flashback. Today’s WTF? moment in pop culture comes to us from 1995’s MTV Video Music Awards. Remember when the VMAs didn’t suck? Remember when they were actually fun to watch? Yeah, those were the good ol’ days.

And when commenting on the golden years of the show, one must acknowledge the contributions of one of music’s most endearing chameleons, Madonna. She rocked the very first VMA show with her writhing performance of “Like a Virgin.”

In more recent years, she shocked VMA audiences with her spit swapping antics with Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears.

But, the Madonna VMA moment I enjoyed most found the material girl playing the terrified victim of one compact flinging Courtney Love. Who could forget terror and annoyance in Madonna’s voice and on her face as Kurt Loder invited a visibly intoxicated Love to join them on a stage outside the awards. It’s a classic moment, not only because Love is just a mess, but also because the generally unflappable Madonna was actually uncomfortably flustered on camera. Let’s watch:

Happy Friday!

    Now my Friday is complete, except for a trip to Krystal.

    Thanks, Dotty.

  2. HA, we were just talking about Krystal at lunch today. There aren’t any nearby here. So sad.

    We made sure to check before we moved here.

    I am putting that on my (real) application to the Krystal Hall of Fame.

    We have Sonic, but alas no Krystal… šŸ˜¦

    As for Madonna, I don’t care for her current music but DAMNATION I want to know how she carved a couple of decades off her looks!?

    DottyZ, I didn’t know you had a blog or I would have popped in sooner… šŸ™‚

  5. Well, welcome, you GreenEyeDevil, you!

    And yes, Madonna looks phenomenal. She’s almost 50!

  6. Oh, I loved this! I don’t know who came off looking better. Courtney looks crazy, but Madonna looks like she’s scared for the first time ever, which was crazy as well.

    Why do these awards suck so hard now? Such a shame.
