Bring Out the Censors! When VMAs Stars Strip Down

Lil' Kim's lil' pasty and Britney's see-through bodysuit are just two of the barely there looks that have made MTV history

LIL' KIM

Good luck keeping your focus on her eyes! At the 1999 show, the rapper wore an outfit that would make even Janet Jackson blush! Looking like a mermaid-inspired stripper, the star famously exposed one of her breasts with a strategically placed pasty, garnering a jiggle from co-presenter Diana Ross and a Halloween homage from Miley Cyrus more than a decade later.
