The awards MTV Video Music Awards 2022 They made history on the night of this Sunday, August 28, and although they still had a long way to go to live up to the memorable kiss between britney and madonna in 2003 or kanye-west stealing prominence from Taylor Swift in 2009, this edition has given us truly iconic moments.
In this gala, the popular television network awards recognition to the artists of the moment, but over the years this night has also become the perfect excuse to show off extravagant outfits (Lady Gaga and her meat dress) and give us one or the other scandalous and controversial moment.

Without a doubt, an uncomfortable moment that did not allow the singer to enjoy her award. However, 13 years after that infamous situation, Taylor again took the stage to receive the same award for her clip of her ‘All Too Well’, wearing a look very similar to the one he wore at the 2009 gala, which for many fans meant a hint for Kanye and his failed attempt to boycott his triumph. Also, as if this were not enough, the artist announced her new album entitled ‘Midnight’s.
Eminem, Snoop Dogg and their presentation in the Metaverse

Johnny Depp and his strange and controversial appearance
Although it had already been announced that the actor would make a special appearance at the awards, it was not known if the public would see it in person or on video, but doubts were soon cleared up when the face of the star of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ was projected onto the astronaut helmet of a giant version of the iconic statuettes ‘moon-person’ that are delivered at the VMA’s. Her participation did not have more relevance than the welcome she gave to the spectators, and obviously, the scandal that her trial against the actress has generated. Amber Heard.
