There was a lot of media attention once again sparked for Britney Spears’ infamous kiss with Madonna at the opening performance of the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards. Another pop queen, Christina Aguilera, also kissed Madonna during the award ceremony. In a recent interview, Hollywood’s iconic personality Jennifer Lopez revealed that Madonna and Britney Spears’ infamous kiss act had initially been envisioned differently.
The Marry Me star allegedly revealed she was meant to perform the opening act of the award show instead of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera with Madonna. To prevent Madonna’s kiss with Christina Aguilera from being witnessed properly, the director cut to a shot of a flabbergasted Justin Timberlake. It is no secret that Jennifer Lopez admires Madonna a lot, as she is a huge fan of the pop queen. Her devotion to the queen of pop was seen as part of the Halloween 2020 celebrations, where the Shotgun Wedding actress recreated Madonna’s iconic look in 1984 at the MTV Video Music Awards.
