Nothing Spontaneous In Showbiz | Dish On Britney And Madonna's Famous MTV VMA Kiss

With the advent of the "not-so-real" reality tv fad, it has now become common knowledge that nothing in showbiz is spontaneous or unplanned. Remember the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards when Madonna kissed Britney Spears, the world freaked out and Christina Aguilera threw a tantrum that no one was talking about her kiss with Madonna because the camera cut to Justin Timberlake’s reaction instead? Well, someone is dishing on the planning behind the iconic moment. 

Britney’s manager, Larry Rudolph, has shared the story of how that historic lady-loving lip lock happened in a recent interview with Billboard.
“Madonna had been very, very, very rigid about the rehearsals,” Rudolph told Billboard. 
“She was telling Britney and I every day, ‘Be here tomorrow at 10 o’clock.’ She would never address me by name, she would just say, ‘You, make sure Britney’s here tomorrow at 10 o’clock.’ And I would say, ‘okay.’ You don’t want to upset her.”

Turns out Her Madgesty not only knew Rudolph’s name, but she was still in a kissing mood when she saw him on the elevator after her performance.
“She came right up to me,” Larry recalled, 
“she put her arms around my waist and she gave me a big kiss on the lips. And she said, ‘You see Larry, it was all worth it.’”
Ok no surprise there, now that we all know that in showbiz, there is something called "scripted reality" while us mere mortals live in the actual real world and lap this made believe reality up. 

It did dawn on me though that I had a bit of a conundrum on my hands here. 

There is a reason moments like that become iconic... even when we know that it must have been planned, right? 

C'mon... forget about the planned moment for a sec and look at the results of the kiss.

Watch Justin Timberlake's blank face. How about Mary J Blige behind him looking like she's about to catch a case, she looks like she is saying "WTF" in her mind — priceless

And the guy jumping behind Mary J, is none other than the now famously happy gay tv personality, Carson Kressly. Nobody except the celeb circle knew who he was then, so you can blame the guy's eccentricities on him being a star now. Judging by this image, poor thing has always been eccentric. 

Seriously though, as far as this Rudolph guy's interview is concerned, what’s better: Madonna openly pretending not to know someone’s name or the fact that Madonna probably never did anything spontaneous in her entire life?

Gotta love a diva!! #Wedontjudge #ShadyThingsDivasDo
