Former pop singing rivals and former Mickey Mouse Club members Christina Aguilera and toxic Britney Spears were the toast of Hollywood last night at the MTV Video Music Awards. Spears opened the show with a toast to the prizegiving on its 25th anniversary and went on to pick up her first of three VMA ‘moonmen’ prizes for her Piece of Me video.
