26 Memorable VMAs Moments

From Bloody Performances and Sushi Leotards to Award Crashers

— August 30, 2011 — Pop Culture
For those of you who managed to miss them last night, the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards took place and certainly added to this list of memorable VMA moments! Take this for example, just mere moments after Beyonce embraced her belly onstage and announced her pregnancy to the world, a Twitter account was created titled @BeeJayFetus for her unborn baby -- not endorsed by Beyonce herself of course.

Yes, the MTV Video Music Awards are known for their scandalous moments like Lady Gaga's bloody performance, memorable celebrity getups like Katy Perry's sushi leotard, and awkward encounters like Kanye West crashing Taylor Swift's acceptance speech. If you found yourself missing out on the action and VMA moments last night, let this collection of memorable occurrences take you down a hilarious memory lane!

Implications - Companies who are quick to reflect on influential television programming events -- like the MTV Video Music Awards -- will be most likely to benefit from the most recent pop culture phenomenons. Products and services that reference celebrity occurrences or awkward televised moments are highly likely to go viral, giving a company or artist a great deal of media and consumer attention.
