It's that time of year again. The MTV Video Music Awards is taking place this Sunday at The Forum in Inglewood, CA. 

As anyone who's tuned into the VMAs before will know, the award show has always been a magnet for controversial, provocative, and entertaining moments. In 2003, Britney Spears and Madonna made out while performing "Like A Virgin." Three years ago, Beyonce announced her pregnancy on the red carpet. Kanye West also interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech and gave the most legendary shrug of all time. Of all time! Not to mention, Lil Wayne, Flavor Flav, Marilyn Manson, and more have shown 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 the red carpet or onstage. Sometimes it's a hit, other times not so much. There have been plenty of the latter category in over three decades since this award show first started. So before you watch the ceremonies this Sunday, check out the Most Ridiculous Outfits in MTV VMA History and have yourself a laugh.
