Meantime, in Manhattan...

IT WAS HARD TO GET MUCH TACKIER THAN that kickoff kiss between newly weds Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley, but that didn't stop the folks at the 11th annual MTV Video Music Awards from trying. From hostess Roseanne's overstretched black velvet outfit and Madonna's Esther Williams redux ensemble to Icelandic rock singer Björk's paper dress and Janet Jackson's overalls, the Sept. 8 festivities at New York City's Radio City Music Hall were long on funk but short on fashion.

Still, MTV veejay Daisy Fuentes, for one, wasn't so much interested in what was being worn as what wasn't. "I was backstage when the Rolling Stones were changing, and I got to see them all drop their drawers and get naked," she giggled, before heading off to the sprawling postshow bash in Manhattan's Bryant Park. "It was the most memorable moment for me!"
