Kiss Of The Decade: Madonna & Britney

Posted by Sylar On Friday, January 29, 2010

The moment that Madonna and Britney Spears puckered up to each other at the MTV Video Music Awards has been voted the top kiss.

The 2003 kiss, which made headlines around the world, tops a list of the most famous kissing moments of the Noughties, compiled by Selfridges.


Tobey Maguire’s upside-down smooch with Kirsten Dunst in Spider-Man came second, followed by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal’s slow-burning snog in Brokeback Mountain.

Same sex kisses scored highly in the poll – Scarlett Johansson with Penelope Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and Lindsay Lohan with Samantha Ronson outside the Mercer hotel in New York, marking their couple status, both made the list.

Jennifer Aniston and Winona Ryder’s liplock on Friends, and Sacha Baron Cohen giving Will Ferrell a big smacker at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards, recreating the infamous Madonna and Britney incident, also feature in the top ten.

Romantic screen snogs with rumoured real-life couples completed the list, including Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in Twilight, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in Mr And Mrs Smith, and Freida Pinto and Dev Patel in Slumdog Millionaire.

    Can somebody please finally explain to me WHY all the talk only was about Britney & Madonna? 5 seconds before Madonna kissed Britney she actually kissed Christina Aguilera the same way (you can see it in the MTV Youtube video) but nobody ever talked about Christina! So why was kissing Britney the only big scandal?

    Because Britney was first and the shock was so great that no one else cared what happened next. Everyone was still focused on and stunned by the first kiss. Everything that happened after was like it didnt happen or matter. I felt the same way.

    Well Christina's kiss wasn't really captured, as cameras switched to Justin Timberlake :)

    Madonna kissed Britney first, not Christina. And it was a bigger deal because Madonna and Britney are much more of the power houses of pop. Christina is great, but she lacks the star power of Madonna and Britney (though she is more talented than Britney).

    Agreed. While Christina is way better (less of a mess, less tragic, prettier, more fit, better singer, more grounded, etc, etc, etc), her star power isn't on the same grounds as Shitney and Madge. And to top it off, the cameras did cut away after the Shitney kiss.
