CNN Pop Culture Watch On ‘The Kiss’

B.J. Sigesmund, entertainment reporter for Newsweek, Thelma Adams, film critic for Us Weekly, and Tom O’Neil, senior editor for In Touch Weekly were on American Morning on CNN Friday morning to talk about the MTV Video Music Awards and of course weighed in on the Madonna and Britney Spears and Madonna and Christina Aguilera kisses. Sigesmund said, “I thought that the first 20 minutes were just amazing. I thought you don’t get a bigger pop culture moment than that opening number with Christina and Britney, first of all, long-time rivals. They were doing an amage to one of the biggest and most dichotic moments in MTV history.” Adams added, “I just thought she was just sliming them. I mean, I don’t know. I guess I missed the big cultural moment.” O’Neil added, “I thought this was very unfair throughout the rest of the night that they didn’t cut to Britney every time Justin won another award for the video that he slams Britney. That would have been interesting.” Read more.

Madonna: ‘I’m The Queen Of Shock, Girls’

August 29, 2003 – Victoria Newton of The Sun weighed in on the choreographed kiss between Madonna and younger peers Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. She says, “At 45, Madge is older than Britney and Christina put together. I’ve watched how the youngsters have shamelessly tried to steal Madonna’s thunder in the past few years. But judging by her latest trick, there’s no doubt Madge still has no trouble putting young pretenders in their place.” Read more.

    I thought it was unfair to Britney that Justin didn’t thank her for all those awards he got. He should of thanked Nsync too, egotistical bastard. And I’m being completely serious here too…Like this: “First of all, I’d like to thank Nsync because I wouldn’t be here without them. I started with Nsync. And I’d also like to thank Britney for being the most popular female in the world, because if she wasn’t, I couldn’t of used her for publicity and wouldn’t of won so many awards because of her name. Thank you, Britney.” be f**king grateful, Justine. You wouldn’t of won so many awards without Britney’s help, you publicity whore.

    Finally the debate is settled. MTV cut to Justin reaction prevented peeps for seeing Christina’s and Madge kiss. Alright guys so no one is only obsessed with one chick, the public are only commenting on what they saw.

    they should have cut to Britney’s face when Justin won those awards. I bet she probably looked like a bitter b!tch because now everybody knows what happened. she’s just mad because she thought she could pull off another big fat lie and make Justin look bad. too late HO! you deserve everything that’s coming to u. we all know the truth now. nobody thinks Britney has any good morals now…..she’s all skank.

    Yeah, why the hell did they have to scare me with Justin’s face? We know he wanted some of it.. But at least we didn’t see Christina kissing Madonna. Britney kissing was disgusting but to see Christina, that’s even more worse. Justin didn’t deserve any awards, the other people got robbed!
