Madonna, Britney Spears

Madonna may be 51, but don't you dare think for even a second that she's too old for MTV.

There's a rumor flying around that the Queen of Pop will perform her new single "Celebration" at next month's Video Music Awards in New York City.

Those set to perform during the show, which takes place Sept. 13 at Radio City Music Hall, include Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, Pink, Taylor Swift, Green Day and Muse.

Madonna's rep insists there are no plans for the VMAs this year. But let's say it does actually happen—would she be able to top some of her most memorable past appearances?

Who will ever forget Madge swapping spit with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera in 2003?

And for those of us old enough to remember, Madonna first made her mark at the VMAs way back in 1984, when she rolled around the Radio City Music Hall stage in a white wedding gown and matching lacy gloves while performing "Like a Virgin."

"Celebration" is the title track of Madonna's upcoming greatest hits compilation. The VMAs certainly would make the perfect venue to promote the new release, as it drops Sept. 29.

In other VMA news, show host Russell Brand and multinominee Spears have reunited for the second year in a row in a promo for the big night.

In a spot just released by MTV, Spears appears poolside in a white bikini and wonders if Brand will invite her to the show. Brand, on the other hand, has other things on his whether he can get Brit to sleep with him.
