20 Years Ago, This Is What The VMAs Looked Like
It was Sept. 7, 1995. Dennis Rodman wore a shimmery tank top.
Drew Barrymore showed up with daisies in her hair and palled around with Courtney Love.
Later, Love performed "Violet" with her band, Hole, and threw stuff at the guitarist.
But no big deal, because Madonna bore her fabulous bra and took home the award for Best Female Video.
Dennis Rodman showed up wearing a shimmery tank top and belly chain.
And Michael Jackson came decked out in leather and gold boots.
While his sister Janet opted for a more, well, casual look.
And her date, Rene Elizando, looked just thrilled to be there.
Michael Jackson performed the 15-minute opening number.
It was a medley of some of his biggest hits.
Later, he and Janet won Best Dance Video for "Scream," which was nominated for 11 awards total.
Chilli, T-Boz, and Left Eye looked like fabulous '90s perfection in matching white ensembles.
And celebrated when their video "Waterfalls" took home awards for Best Group Video, Best R&B Video, Viewer's Choice, and Video of the Year.
Weezer also took home four awards for "Buddy Holly."
R.E.M. won the Video Vanguard Award.
Alanis Morissette was full of awesome angst.
Pre-Amal George Clooney showed up in a shiny vest with shaggy hair and looked dreamy.
And pre-Penisgate Lenny Kravitz showed up in double nose piercings and a pinstripe suit.
Kevin Bacon, ageless timelord, showed up looking EXACTLY THE SAME AS HE DOES TODAY.
And Donald Trump was not running for president.
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
