MTV’s Material Girl! Madonna stunned the 2021 Video Music Awards viewers throughout Sunday, September 12, on the present’s opening.
The singer, 63, approached the microphone in a trench coat, which she eliminated to disclose a black leather-based dress and matching hat. “And they said we wouldn’t last, but we’re still here motherf–kers,” the Grammy winner informed screaming followers. “Happy 40th, MTV! Welcome to the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards.”
While many puzzled whether or not the Michigan native could be performing, Justin Bieber subsequently took the stage. The Canada native, 27, carried out “Stay” with The Kid LAROI and “Ghost.” Hailey Bieber may very well be seen cheering on her husband in the viewers whereas rocking a purple Alaia dress.
The Canada native, for his half, carried out in a black hoodie. The “Never Say Never” singer final graced the VMAs stage in 2015 singing “What Do You Mean?”
Madonna has had many iconic VMAs moments through the years, which she mirrored on in a pre-taped video. “Around 40 years ago I came to New York City with nothing but 35 dollars and a pair of dance shoes,” the Queen of Pop stated on Sunday. “Forty years ago, another underdog arrived in New York City hoping to create something revolutionary. An all-music channel premiered in the middle of the night and called itself MTV. We found each other and formed a bond that changed my life, changed music and created a whole new art form. That’s why there’s only one place to be tonight.”
The actress first carried out “Like a Virgin” on the 1984 ceremony. Nearly twenty years later, she infamously kissed Britney Spears whereas performing onstage together with her with Christina Aguilera.
Madonna shared her admiration for the Princess of Pop, 39, in the 2008 documentary For the Record. “There’s a certain fragility about her and vulnerability about her that makes me feel maternal toward her,” she gushed on the time. “There are aspects about her that I recognize in myself when I first started out in my career. I also admire her talent as an artist.”
Spears was positioned underneath a conservatorship that very same year, talking about it publicly for the primary time in June. Madonna in contrast the conservatorship to “slavery” the next month, tweeting, “Give this woman her life back! Death to the greedy patriarchy that has been doing this to women for centuries. This is a violation of human rights! Britney we coming to get you out of jail!”
Earlier this month, the Mickey Mouse Club alum’s dad, Jamie Spears, filed a petition to finish his position as Britney’s conservator. Shortly earlier than Sunday evening’s present, the “Circus” singer introduced her engagement to Sam Asghari.
