A Brief History Of Nakedness (And Near Nakedness) At The VMAs

A Brief History Of Nakedness (And Near Nakedness) At The VMAs

Much has been made of one young female performer named Miley Cyrus stripping down to her flesh colored underwear at this year’s VMAs. This is pretty silly, considering nudity (or near-nudity) has been a time honored tradition of this particular awards show for some thirty years running.

Person Or Accessory? A Quiz And Tutorial For Miley Cyrus

If you have gone on the internet today, it’s physically impossible that you are not yet aware of Miley Cyrus‘ triumphantly atrocious VMAs performance, which was arguably racist, eye rollingly predictable, and a sign that America is dead inside.

Angry little mall goth that I was, I was never that into *NSync growing up, but can certainly appreciate their cheesiness in hindsight, especially from a fashion P.O.V. From skin-tight muscle tees to weird shiny coats, the *NSync archives are a treasure trove of bad late ’90s/early 2000s fashion, confusing hairstyles and inadvertent homoeroticism. Let’s look back on their top 12 finest moments. More »
