On Saturday morning, Entertainment Weekly published an article on how Lady Gaga can win the MTV VMAs after this week's backlash, which found her supporting date rape, posting illegal links to increase her YouTube views, and asking fans to buy multiple copies of "Applause" so it can chart better. In other words, Lady Gaga must not pull another "Jo Calderone" like she did in 2011. We ranked that appearance as the most cringeworthy in MTV VMA history.
But Madonna, the woman who Gaga desperately tries to emulate on an hourly basis, had her cringeworthy moments too. The worse was when Madonna dressed up as a boy in 1993 and performed an awful track called "Bye Bye Baby." Her kiss with Britney Spears almost made our list.
Who can ever forget when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech in 2009 to say that Beyonce really deserved the award. This moment was a true jump-the-shark moment for Kanye, who has jumped the shark many times since this event. West has since apologized to Swift, but the damage this did to his career is permanent.
Let's take a look at the full list. Do you agree? Why or why not? Are there any that we missed?
