Although Madonna wasn’t honored with an award at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, she still managed to steal the show. In the middle of a three-song set with younger pop stars Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, Madonna French-kissed Spears and lip-kissed Aguilera — both of whom were half the Material Girl’s age. Madonna was dressed as a groom, while Spears and Aguilera were both dressed as brides. Madonna’s six-year-old daughter was on stage, dressed as a flower girl. Tellingly, broadcasters immediately cut to Spears’s then-newly-ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake to gauge his reaction. Instead of the Aug. 28 show’s award winners, the next day’s (and really, the next week’s) press coverage centered on Madonna’s passionate lip lock.
