Welcome to a new thread that will look back through every single moment that Gaga has had at the MTV VMAs. That's right, in the run up to her hotly anticipated return at the end of August, we will be reliving every single nomination, win, speech, performance, outfit and more.

Over the years she has cemented herself as a music video icon and this awards ceremony has seen some of her most memorable moments of her career to date.

Before we get started, what moments are you most excited about reliving? ohmy.gif

Kesha's facial expression vs. Rihanna's facial expression - you couldn't get any more opposite if you tried! rotf.gif So iconic.

Excited about reliving everything because she always goes in HARD, whether that's her red carpet looks, her acceptance speeches, or her actual performances.

This is gonna hype me even more for August 30th *.*

As an image it sums up the world's perception to Gaga at that moment rotf.gif The confused, the shocked, the repulsed, the adoration, the ambivalence. So many emotions stirred up by one person!

My favourite ever VMAs moments happened during the night of the above image, but one moment in particular that I won't spoil exactly until it comes in this thread cool2.gif

2009 ~ Red Carpet

Gaga's first taste of the VMAs was 2009. She arrived on the red carpet wearing a black dress, neck brace, top hat, and a Phantom of the Opera-esque mask. Her date was Kermit the Frog. Prior to entering the event, she was interviewed by Sway from MTV.

Outfit




Interview
On the carpet, she was interviewed by MTV's Sway:

CODE
Sway: What up Tim? I'm here with the woman who is definitely going to have a big night, and maybe big is to small of a word for you Lady Gaga. And congratulation on your nominations.
Lady Gaga: Thank you, Sway.
Sway: Wow. Does it even matter that both you and Beyoncé both got 9? Or is it just like what P!nk said, it's just ladies night?
Lady Gaga: You know what, it's totally ladies night and I'm just happy to be here. And I'm excited for everyone to win.
Sway: Absolutely. And this is...?
Kermit: Lady Gaga, you forgot your credentials.
Lady Gaga: Ah, thanks babe.
Kermit: I was afraid they might not recognize you when you try to get in.
Lady Gaga: Thanks babe.
Sway: Kermit the Frog.
Kermit: Oh, hi there.
Sway: Wow, you guys are kissing again. You are quite a ladies frog, Kermit.
Kermit: Oh, well, yeah.
Lady Gaga: He's been a really good date. I mean it's our first date, and we've been eying each other for some time, but I'm pretty excited.
Sway: What about Miss Piggy? I thought Miss Piggy was your girl.
Kermit: You know, Piggy and I have been together for a long time, but Gaga and I, we're just friends. Yeah, we're just friends.
Lady Gaga: You're so handsome tonight, Kermit.
Kermit: Aw, thanks. You look lovely yourself.
Lady Gaga: Miss Piggy has been sending me some pretty funny text messages though.
Sway: Has she really? I know she's a jealous woman.
Kermit: Well, what did she say?
Lady Gaga: Well, she was wondering if it was going to be another late night.
Sway: Wow.
Kermit: Oh, good grief.
Sway: Kermit, come back to me. Tell me what you think of what Lady Gaga is wearing.
Kermit: I think she looks lovely. Hey, listen. I'm just happy it's not made out of people I know.
Sway: Okay.
Kermit: Yeah.
Sway: Right. Okay.
Lady Gaga: Well don't you like his McQueen tux tonight?
Sway: Well, he looks pretty good.
Lady Gaga: You look fabulous Kermit.
Kermit: I'm not really used to wearing a tux.
Lady Gaga: My goodness, I'm so nervous around him.
Sway: You guys look like a good couple. What about what you're wearing. Describe this. What inspired it?
Lady Gaga: Well, I'm wearing Jean-Paul Gaultier. And this is a hat by a very young designer, as well as this neck brace. It's a Keko of London.And I'm here supporting my friends tonight, and we're just really happy to be here. We love MTV. And I'm really happy to be here with my date, Kermit.
Sway: Wow.
Kermit: Thank you. It's really an honor, being here with you.
Lady Gaga: You too, Kermit.
Sway: Well, you know, I don't want to hold you two up. I know you got a big night, a big performance on stage tonight.
Lady gaga: Thank you.
Sway: And congratulations on all of your success.
Lady Gaga: Thank you. I'm excited Sway. Thank you very much. Bye.

This is such a stunning look and a great entrance for her to the VMAs scene. The neck brace was a real neck brace apparently ohmy.gif The mask is STUNNING too, and it all works together as a complete outfit exquisitely.

That black dress/neck brace look is so gothic and macabre and fit PERFECTLY with what was to come later that night. Iconic.

2009 ~ Performance

Pete Wentz and Gabe Saporta introduced Gaga to the crowd before she performed. She wore the Haus of Gaga Bleeding Bodysuit and mask by Keko Hainswheeler. She claims that it was inspired by a Frida Kahlo self-portrait, the death of Princess Diana, and the public's fascination with the demise of the celebrity.

She performed Poker Face and Paparazzi culminating in a gruesome, bloody ending...

Outfit









Performance



What are your thoughts on this performance and the outfit now?

This remains one of her absolute best performances (probably second favourite of mine). The sheer drama and theatrics that go into it, and of course that ending. It left the world speechless and really put her even more firmly on the map as a game changer and one for the ages.

Literally everyone was talking about this performance back in 2009, I remember it as if it were today, one of the best VMA performances of all time.

An absolute spectacle. I'd be happy if her performance this year even comes close to matching the quality of it!

I don't think she has ever had a "bad" award show performance but looking forward to this VMAs just because she hasn't performed anything uptempo since The Cure at the AMAs in 2017.

Definitely one of her best promo performances, everything about it was amazing and I've watched it many times. I adore the way she sings the "I'm your biggest fan..." line at the end of the song, with the kind-of desperation in her voice. Love.
