2001

At the 2001 Video Music Awards, Spears gave another memorable performance when she took the stage to sing her new single, "I'm a Slave 4 U." Along with dancing in a very revealing outfit, the performance is probably most remembered for featuring the singer in a cage with a tiger and briefly dancing with a live albino Burmese Python on her shoulders. The inclusion of a tiger and a snake in the performance bought a great deal of criticism from PETA.[17] U2 had been set to perform a medley including "Elevation", "Beautiful Day" and "Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of." The riser they were performing on lost power and MTV had to cut to several minutes of promos while everything was setup again. .They lost power again and finally the band was lowered to the ground and performed without the riser.^ At the 2008 MTV VMAs, Travis Barker and DJ AM discuss how excited they are to be the house band, as well as what performances they are looking forward to seeing the most.

2002

In 2002, the VMA took place on Michael Jackson's birthday, and as a tribute, Britney Spears introduced him saying she "considered him the artist of the millennium." Jackson misunderstood and said, "When I was a little boy growing up in Indiana if someone told me I'd be getting 'the artist of the millennium award,' I'd have never believed it."[19] A year later, this was parodied by presenters Fred Durst and Jack Black, with Durst stating that Black was the "funniest man alive." Following Jackson's death in 2009, MTV retconned that he had indeed been honored with the Artist of the Millennium Award.[20]
