She wanted applause and she got it! The singer kicked off the 2013 VMAs with an exhausting striptease and nearly five-minute performance, where she started in a conservative all-white getup and ended in a thong bikini with her naughty bits covered only by seashells and flowers. It was an outfit that was actually more revealing than fellow pop star Miley's that year, but got overshadowed by all that twerking.
