When Madonna first performed at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1984, her shoe fell off, waking up the audience when she tried to pick it up.
In 1984, Madonna performed “Like a Virgin” live for the first time at the first VMA Awards and inadvertently surprised the audience, causing controversy. According to Billboard, Madonna wanted a white Bengal elephant to appear on stage during her performance but instead walked out of a 17-foot wedding cake.
The publication reported that one of Madonna’s heels fell off when she got off the cake and caused a wardrobe malfunction when she tried to remove it.
“So I thought, ‘Okay, I’ll pretend I meant it,'” he said, ‘and it hit the ground and rolled over.’ And when I got to the shoes, the cloth rose. The underwear was showing.”
Pink and Shakira inadvertently arrived at the 2009 VMAs in the same little black dress.
Arriving at the 2009 VMAs, Shakira and Pink were seen in matching little black leather dresses with sequins and chains. According to HuffPost, the little black dress was designed by Balmain.
The musicians took a wrong turn, laughed, and stood together. HuffPost added that the pink color later changed to a purple, white, and black asymmetric pattern with pink pasties.
