MTV Moves VMAs Back to LA

bspears.jpgIt's another change of venue this year as the MTV Video Music Awards head back to the west coast for the 2008 ceremony.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the annual music awards will return to Los Angeles on Sunday, September 7 at the Paramount Pictures studio lot. EW says the show is likely to make use of the studio's many soundstages and rooftops for its customary musical performances.

The show has been traveling the country over the last decade, with a few years spent in Miami and last year's performance taking place in Las Vegas. No word yet on the host or performers, but the event is sure to have some buzz-worthy moments. Remember last year's tussle between Kid Rock and Tommy Lee while Alicia Keys sang on stage? Compared to previous years, their fight was pretty tame. Here are some more memorable moments (most of them including Britney Spears):

• Madonna writhes on the floor in 1984 to "Like a Virgin."
• RuPaul and Milton Berle spar with each other on air in 1993.
• Tim Commerford, bassist for Rage Against the Machine, climbed some scaffolding on the set as Limp Bizkit accepted an award in 2000. Both Fred Durst and the crowd taunted him to jump. The show cut to commercial and Commerford was arrested.
• In 2002, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog angers Eminem. Later, Eminem and Moby had words, after Moby had criticized Eminem's music.

The Britney Moments:
• In 2000, Britney rips off her clothes during her set of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" and "Oops…I Did It Again" to reveal a flesh-colored outfit.
• In 2001, Britney dances around in a wet outfit complete with live snake. PETA and fashion experts are both outraged.
• The kiss seen ‘round the world: Britney Spears, Madonna and Christina Aguilera make out at the 2003 awards. Everyone was shocked about then-still-sort-of-innocent Spears, but no so much about Aguilera.
• Britney stages a comeback in 2007, but forgets to rehearse or learn her lyrics. Hmmm, maybe they should have explained the word "comeback."
