Madonna Bad Luck Charm Due To Kiss?

Quick: Who were the big winners at last year's MTV Video Music Awards? You don't remember, do you? Probably because all that comes to mind is Madonna kissing Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

Their PDA publicity stunt was so successful you couldn't ignore it if you tried (and why would you?), but the ladies-only love triangle almost played out with a different pair of puckers. Party-starter Pink had been on the guest list, but she declined. So although Justin Timberlake and Coldplay snatched up the most Moonmen, Pink's decision to say "kiss off" makes her one of the night's biggest winners too.
