On August 29, 2002, the MTV Video Music Awards 2002 were held at the Radio City Music Hall in New York. After an opening skit, Jimmy Fallon and no other than James Brown welcomed Britney Spears onstage, who introduced Michael Jackson and then, the two of them presented the winner of the Best Pop Video category (No Doubt).

Before that, Britney gave Michael a special award as a way of recognition for his birthday, however, Michael misinterpreted her words and believed he was getting honored as the Artist of the Millennium (it's not like he was far from that though).

Britney was nominated for three categories that night, but didn't win any of them:

  • Best Female Video (I'm a Slave 4 U) - lost to Pink's Get This Party Started
  • Best Dance Video (I'm a Slave 4 U) - lost to Pink's Get This Party Started too
  • Best Choreography (I'm a Slave 4 U, Wade Robson) - lost to Kylie Minogue's Can't Get You Out of My Head (Michael Rooney)

This was the first VMA's ceremony that didn't count with a live performance by Britney Spears since her debut in 1999.

I'm still mad at MTV for exploiting her and her popularity so much with Tv specials, performances, interviews, documentaries, concerts, appearances, TRL, while not giving her any MTV VMA award until "Piece Of Me" for the 2008 organized and forced "comeback". **** MTV.  :rihit_rihanna_annoyed_throw_walk_away_bye_irritated_mad:

Anyway she's iconic and this moment with the King Of Pop was legendary.

MTV set MJ up to fail. Taj Jackson has talked about it on streams, he was even there when MJ recieved a call from MTV about the “award”.  They told MJ he was indeed recieving an award. Taj is a big Britney supporter btw, has talked a lot about her on his live streams.
