Fail Occurred: 9/10/1998

Canibus, while winning his ongoing feud with LL Cool J, took an L of his own upon showing up to the 1998 MTV VMAs. On the arm of Wyclef Jean, there to perform his verse on the "Gone To November (Remix)," Canibus arrived on the red carpet looking like he was dipped in the same silver paint bucket that Sisqo used to color his hair. On his 2003 song "My Name is Nobody," Canibus raps, "To this day, if someone asks me, 'Why were you silver on MTV?' I have to just tell them it wasn't me, 'cause I'm nobody." Yup.
