The MTV Video Music Awards are the perfect place to debut new music videos, songs and even significant others.
As the annual award show gears up for its 34th ceremony on Monday night, there's plenty of jaw-dropping history to accompany MTV's signature show. Whether it be Madonna writhing around as a sexy bride in 1984 or the pop icon making an equal splash nearly a decade later with a three-way kiss featuring Britney Spearsand Christina Aguilera, the MTV stage has been the designated place for celebrities' musical shenanigans for more than 30 years. Lest we forget the Miley Cyrus twerking incident or Kanye West's notorious Taylor Swift interruption ("Imma let you finish")?
However, before the show even begins, stars make just as much of a statement when they hit the red carpet—many with a significant other. While some of those celebrity couplings seemed commonplace at the time, some red carpet duos feel like pure figments of our imaginations today.
