The MTV Video Music Awards is happening this Sunday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, making this the first time since 2009 that the show has been held in NYC. Drake, Kanye West, and 2 Chainz have all been confirmed to perform. Justin Timberlake and 'NSYNC are reportedly reuniting onstage the same night. But what else will happen? 

As anyone who's tuned into the VMAs before will know, the award show has been a magnet for controversial, provocative, and entertaining moments. In 2003, Britney Spears and Madonna made out while performing "Like A Virgin." Two years ago, Beyonce announced her pregnancy on the red carpet. Kanye West also interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech. Not to mention, Lil Wayne, Flavor Flav, Marilyn Manson, and more have showed up wearing some of the most bizarre outfits we've ever seen. 

Award shows are prime opportunities for celebrities to experiment with their personal styles, be it on red carpets or onstage. Sometimes it's a hit, other times not to much. There have been plenty of the latter in the VMAs' 30 years. So before you watch the show this Sunday, check out the Most Ridiculous Outfits in MTV VMA History and have yourself a laugh.
