Popcorn Moments: Michael Jackson & Lisa Marie Presley's Infamous MTV Kiss

On September 8th, 1994, Michael Jackson and his then wife Lisa Marie Presley (daughter of Elvis Presley) came out on stage at the MTV VMA's hand-in-hand for no reason at all.

At the time, Michael Jackson had been slammed with sexual molestation charges stemming from an alleged situation with a little boy, so my guess is that they did this to set the record straight about what he really likes.

Observers of music were not feeling the kiss and dubbed it one of the most uncomfortable moments in music history.


Looking at the video now, there wasn't really much uncomfortable about it; especially compared to today's uncomfortable moments. A clear sign of how perception changes over time.

Either way, this moment was definitely a popcorn moment for all.
