Madonna 'Express Yourself'

Middle America is not gonna let this one go lightly.” *NSYNC star said: “I am not saying anything about it – that’s how I get into trouble.” But singer Simon Le Bon said: “I wish it was me she was snogging.” VMA host Chris Rock said: “That kiss was good, but where was mine?” Read more.

    I’m from New York and I thought the show was crappy and that kiss was so staged that it had no effect whatsoever.

    The kiss was good… But I couldn’t see “Christina” kiss Madonna very well because they put the camera to “Justin Timberlake” Britney’s ex ! …so I kinda missed it, But I’ve seen some pictures & they are very good! the 3 of them looked great even though I’m not a much fan of the 3! I think Madonna is such an icon, she knows what she’s doing. she knows that she still got game! she’s amazing! Britney Spears… Gosh this girl is back! I can see her coming back soon with big surprises… I hope they are better than the kiss she got with Madonna, Wow It was great ! & that night is gonna be history, trust me ! I also liked it because Britney Spears sang live… she sounds so great, I love her! I gotta give her props.. she looked gorgeous! Christina Aguilera.. it was kinda obvious she was gonna “Replace” J.LO! J.lo was filming in Canada, But I think she did it OK.. I would of loved to see J.LO instead of her anyway, I mean who wouldn’t.. That performance deserves a 1O overall…. It was awesome…. Go Madonna… Go Britney…. Oops! I can’t forget Missy Elliot, she was cool! & I think Justin got “Jealous” when he saw Madonna kiss Britney! deep inside he feels something for her & he probably wished he was Madonna at the time ! Hey… & he kinda sounds like her too.. hehe, jk! Thank YOU!

    I was shocked (but in a good way) lol…here come the re-runs. without a doubt that whole performance and the kiss in general will go down in VMA/Pop culture history. obviously staged but entertaining. its all over the news, I mean CNN, c’mon they showed that kiss b-4 anything about the war.

    well– Britney did say she was ‘just craving a kiss’ and she sure as hell got one.

    my jaw dropped when I saw them kiss. was Britney lip-synching? it didn’t look like she was. I’m disappointed in this year’s VMA’s. most of it sucked.

    it is so incredibly idiotic how there are STILL some people who just can’t HELP but diss Christina even though BRITNEY was JUST as “whorish” and “slutty” (if you wanna call it that).. you all need to accept the fact that BOTH Christina and Britney are GROWN women and they can do whatever the hell they want to do and don’t need your approval. and about the pin Christina was wearing.. SO WHAT!!?? it was all in good FUN.. isn’t that what the VMAs are suppose to be about.. crazy fun?? If Christina and Britney can accept each other, have enough respect for each other to perform together and even exchange smiles.. how come their fans can’t get along either?? I’m not a Britney fan but I can admit that she makes good music and is a great performer.. if you think for a second that Christina has no talent or style.. you’re lying to yourself.

    and by the way.. looks like Christina got that hot body back!! (not that she was fat before cause she wasn’t) but I noticed that she had lost some of the weight she gained.. so now it’d be REALLY stupid for anyone to call her fat.. if you looked at the pics of her and Britney.. you’ll see that her frame is about smaller than brit’s! so from now on.. if Christina is fat.. SO IS BRITNEY!! Christina looked so gorgeous in her pink feather dress.

    Christina’s body is WAY hotter than Britney’s now too. she’s so curvaceous. and what an ass she’s got! Britney ain’t got back, and her body is as straight as an arrow. not to mention her looking as old as Madonna.

  8. EvanescenceSucks says:

    I don’t know, the kiss didn’t really blow me away like it was supposed to. And it really did look like Britney was lip synching, but then again, Christina could have been, also. I don’t think Madonna was because she was off key twice and I doubt they would have let that go if it were pre recorded. Both Britney and Christina were gorgeous. Anyone who says Christina is fat is out of their mind. You could compare the two side to side and they were the exact same size. Yes, Mary J. looked disgusted or pissed, but I didn’t see her reaction before when it was just Britney on stage, so for all we know she could have disliked the whole thing, not just Xtina.

  9. Gimmeabreak says:

    hahaha…i can’t stop laughing at the joke Dave n made…about Madonna being the youngest looking one on stage…that was so funny…hahaha…

  10. XtinaFan says:

    Lol, that really doesn’t make fun of Britney though…only in your mind. she’s more making fun of herself (even though she’s not…but I’m saying, if it seems like she’s making fun of anyone, then she’d be making fun of herself) because according to you, if her saying that she f**ked Britney is making-fun-of/insulting to Britney….that’s more of a diss to Christina.

  11. rachel says:

    Haha for real XtinaFan!!!!!!!!! Christina was wearing that pin, haha I like the girl more and more everyday. Its a diss to Britney not Christina, imagine how many other people have that.

    Okay guys, everyone knows Mary J can’t stand Christina. She hated her right after her first album came out because she said when Christina met her she was extremly rude or conceited or something like that. I thought she got over it because it was all the way in 1999 or 2000 but apparently not. I still love Mary J though, I thought her and coldplays performance was the best. I liked Christina’s too.

  12. XtinaFan says:

    I’ve never seen anyone else wear that pin, so your theory goes down the drain. and if it’s such a diss to Britney, let’s say hypothetically, Christina is also dissing herself, because if she’s claiming she f**ked Britney, and that’s a diss to Britney…for reasons like Britney slept around or whatever. Then it’s also a diss to Christina because Christina would be lowering herself to such standards.
