Christina Aguilera Admits She Was Upset About Being “Left Out” Of 2003 MTV VMA Kiss Press

Published: Thursday 4th Oct 2018 by Rashad

It was the smooch seen around the world.

2003’s MTV VMAs brought with it an iconic tribute to Queen of Pop Madonna‘s game-changing 1984 ‘Like a Virgin’ performance by the time’s reigning pop princesses, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.  Dressed as two brides (in homage to Madge’s ‘Virgin’ era), the Queen dressed as a groom and led the teen pop sensations in a dance before landing a historic kiss.

Much to the chagrin of Aguilera (and her fans), her tongue twist with M wasn’t fully televised as cameramen cut to the audience to film reactions (namely of Spears’ then-recent ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake).  As the ‘Baby One More Time’ songstress saw her name dominate press in the weeks to come it would take 15 years for her one-time rival (Aguilera) to admit she was bothered by the absence of press she received from the incident.

Now, she’s breaking her silence.  Hear it inside:

Longtime fans of both singers know this isn’t the first time the ‘Beautiful’ performer has acknowledged her disappointment with MTV after the cut away.  Shortly after the incident occurred, she took to press to call the occurrence ‘pathetic’ (skip to the 2:00 mark in the video below):

    They made her the b*** of all jokes because of the friendly rivalry she had with Britney in the early 2000s. So she was left out on purpose.

    Duh! And that was the moment that she had to realize that her and Britney were Not on the same level.

    Christina Aguilera is a talented vocalist. Arianna Grande is also a talent vocalist. Rumor says THEY ARE NOT NICE. NOT NICE TO FANS. Rude in nature. There is a REASON why Christina does NOT sell Whitney/Mariah Numbers. She has the voice but NOT the record sales or legacy. CHRISTINA IS A HORRIBLE PERSON. Arianna/Christina have these people blowing there heads up…..”your the next whitney or mariah”…..yet they NEVER measure up. Never. Arrogance never wins.

    This is actually pretty well known. She was very salty about it afterwards, even throwing shade at Britney and Madonna’s single and video for “Me Against the Music”. And when asked if she would collaborate with Madonna, she responded, “maybe Madonna 10 years ago.” She must have gotten over it because her 2010 music video “Not Myself Tonight” was complete homage to Madonna with scenes being directly lifted from “Express Yourself” and “Human Nature”.
