Madonna 'wanted Jennifer Lopez for MTV VMAs kiss'

Madonna originally wanted Jennifer Lopez to join her on stage for a kiss during her infamous MTV VMAs performance in 2003, it has been revealed.
MTV Music Group President Van Toffler has confessed that eventual performers Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera weren't necessarily the pop icon's first choices.
'It was a long road to get to that Britney and Christina kiss, because they weren't necessarily the first couple of people who were on the hit list,' Toffler told EW.
'This may be the first time it's revealed, but originally JLo was in the mix. That didn't happen,' he added.
'And the thing about Britney and Christina was they had history, so it was not easy to get them together on the stage.'
'Both Britney and Christina obviously respected Madonna, so only she could pull that off. You have to have that kind of pull.'

I've always thought, and I still feel this way, that the 'kiss/es' were a mistake and brought Madonna the wrong sort of attention. Madonna's performance was terrific- her grooming and outfit made her look 'fierce' (in a great way), her singing & dancing was fantastic- but all this got lost! Her amazing performance was reduced to 'that kiss', which only made up a few seconds of the overall performance. I wonder how Britney and Christina must now feel, knowing they weren't her first choice! But JLo, yes she's beautiful, but the media back in the day said that Madonna was in a feud with her over JLo's comments stating that she didn't consider Madonna an actress. Oh well, that was 9 years ago-time to MOOVE on!

Actually this was widely reported back in 2003. Madonna had Britney and JLo over for lunch to discuss the performance and JLo refused to do it. Here's an article about it...
