The MTV Video Music Awards might be the most WTFiest award show of them all. Maybe it's the insanely huge number of celebs and Jersey Shore cast under one roof. Or the whole live TV thing. Or maybe it's just the glint in that metallic moonperson's eye that makes everyone go ham.
Whatever it is, every year we're blessed with some truly outrageous red carpet looks, cringe-worthy acceptance speeches, and wild celebrity run-ins that we'll never recover from. This is the show that gave us Kanye vs. Taylor Swift. Fiona Apple vs. capitalism. Eminem vs. a puppet. And the G.O.A.T.: Courtney Love's makeup bag vs. Madonna. And this year was no different. Here are the eight moments from tonight's awards show that we’ll be talking about all day tomorrow.
