MTV VMAs 2000 Performance Comes of Age!


Guest

Recommended Posts

September 7, 2018, marks the 18th anniversary of Britney Spears’ 2000 MTV VMA Performance, where she performed her remake of Rolling Stones’ 1965 “Satisfaction” hit, and “Oops!…I Did It Again,” the lead single off her sophomore album Oops!…I Did It Again. On this night, the Princess of Pop definitively shed her teeny-bop persona and cemented her status as one of the most iconic performers of our time.

“It’s not unusual for a notable — or notorious — VMA moment to stand out as one of the most important in an artist’s career, nor is it weird for them to synch up with other massive milestones for the performers, like historic record sales, or, y'know, the birth of their first child. By that metric, no other artist has had a connection to the heart of the VMAs quite like Britney Spears.”

“And finally she just looked at me and was like, ‘Look. Grab where you need to grab to rip this f—king thing off so it comes off when it’s supposed to.’ ”

"For many of us who were teenagers in the 2000s, Britney Spears is the VMAs... I remember exactly where I was when Britney ripped off her suit and exposed a nude-colored bra and pants covered in rhinestones "

“Looking closely, it's clear that she basically fell out of the top. A wardrobe malfunction, but one that Spears never let anyone see. The dramatic hairflip and the camera angle made it an easy moment to miss. But it's there, clear as day"

"We saw the performance and were immediately like, 'Wow, this is clearly an iconic moment in her career...it was crystal clear in everyone's mind we were watching a special moment," (Meredith Rutledge-Borger, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's assistant curator)

 

 

 

Comments/thoughts? (Where were you when this iconic moment aired? Age?) Let it out. 

In celebration of this performance’s 18th birthday, let’s give it proper respect! Let’s go back to a time right before YouTube, smartphones, or cell phones for that matter, Perez Hilton, mass media culture, massive internet fan culture. There were no spoilers, leaked info to the press, excessive media coverage via the internet/social media like there is now.  Let’s recapture that global excitement surrounding this iconic moment and put it on this thread!

Hit the upvote please! :bigkiss:

i swear to god i dont care what ANYONE says this is literally her best performance of all time. everyone always brings up the 2001 vma's but for me this one always topped it.  i dont know what it is. 

I watched this as it happened.  It took a good hour or so to pick my jaw up off the floor.  Phucking phenomenal, and hands down better than 2001 VMA.

The look you give when you know you just slayed and snatched everyone's wigs out

Best reveal ever! For me it was the moment Britney became a true queen! I made sure to record it on VHS so I could obsessively rewatch afterwards!

Excuse me as I just took screenshots. It's this moment... just hard to get it to fully stop on the right moment. But you can see where her bras starts to open. Watch closely after.

I think this one wins over 2001 for me too just because she sings the intro live.

This is such an Iconic performance. I watched it again and again and again...

Me too! I still remember the tingling sensation it left in my 14 year old self! Chills. I had just gone to her OIDIA tour like the week before, and my obsession had been growing strong all year. And then this performance came along! 

I stan for life ??
