During 2003’s MTV VMAs, Madonna had a prolonged kiss with Britney during their opening performance for the ceremony.

Soon after that, Christina joined Britney onstage for the song before Madonna appeared and launched into her single Hollywood. During the performance, Madonna leaned over and kissed Britney.
In 2018 Christina – who was on stage for the kiss – recalled feeling left out of the moment saying her kiss with Madonna just moments later was not shown.
During the broadcast only the image of Britney and Madonna was aired, followed by a reaction shot of Britney’s former flame Justin Timberlake.

‘It was weird. And you know why they cut away for it? Because they cut away to get Justin [Timberlake’s] reaction,’ she said in a radio interview.
Christina went on to elaborate that the manufactured drama was a ‘cheap shot’ as Britney and Justin were no longer an item.
Andy then clarified ‘I don’t think people actually totally realize that she [Madonna] made out with both of you that day.’
She confirmed the sentiment, recalling ‘Yeah, because I definitely saw the newspaper the next day and it was like, ‘Oh, well, I guess I got left out of that’.’

Britney tied the knot with her longtime partner Sam on Thursday evening, becoming a newlywed for the third time during an intimate fairytale wedding that was attended by a select group of friends and family – including A-listers like Madonna, Drew Barrymore, Selena Gomez, and Paris Hilton.
The highly-anticipated wedding took place at the singer’s $7 million Los Angeles mansion – with newly-released images capturing the blushing bride and her groom grinning from ear-to-ear after they exchanged their vows in front of an enormous pink-and-white flower wall.
Baby One More Time singer Britney was the picture of bridal bliss as she posed with her new husband, looking radiant in a custom-made white Versace wedding gown, which featured an off-the-shoulder sweetheart neckline, long train, and an elegant veil that swept along the floor behind her as she exchanged vows with her 28-year-old husband.
And the bride wore… Versace! Britney was the epitome of bridal chic as she tied the knot in a custom Versace gown on Thursday night, less than a year after getting engaged to her longtime partner Sam
The singer – whose wedding was not attended by estranged her family members, father Jamie Spears, mother Lynne Spears, and sister Jamie Lynn Spears – added some fashionable flair to her gown by donning a white choker necklace and sheer white gloves. The dress also featured a thigh-high slit on one side.
Pictures also capture the stunning jewelry that she sported for the occasion, including a dazzling diamond necklace, two pairs of diamond earrings and, of course, her diamond wedding bands – of which she had two, while her husband opted for a simple single ring.
One of Britney’s two rings features a simple band of round stones, while the other is a circle of marquise diamonds, both of which were set in a silver metal – likely platinum. Sam’s band meanwhile has a two-tone metal design, with a circle of brushed metal running along the middle, with a shiny metallic band on either side.
Images taken inside the ceremony show the happy couple standing in front of a stunning flower wall that was covered in pink-and-white blooms – which also featured in the multiple floral arrangements that were placed in between the wooden pews where their guests were seated during the ceremony.

The pair held hands as they exchanged their vows, with Sam seen with a wide grin on his face as he faced his wife during the ceremony, which took place in a beautiful pink tent that was set up on the grounds of Britney’s California mansion and had multiple chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.
Pink seems to have been the theme of the day, with the couple also pictured celebrating their union by exchanging a kiss on a balcony at the property, which had also been covered in pink blooms in varying shades.
The couple, who announced their engagement in September last year, were officially pronounced husband and wife in front of a small, select group of guests, which included several of their celebrity pals: Selena Gomez, Madonna, Drew Barrymore, Paris Hilton, and Ansel Elgort were all invited to attend, however Britney’s estranged family members, and the two sons she shares with ex-husband Kevin Federline, were not present.
But if the absence of her family caused any distress for the bride, she certainly didn’t let it show on the day, with images capturing Britney grinning from ear-to-ear as she posed for newlywed portraits with her husband, who looked incredibly dapper in a black tuxedo, complete with white bouttoniere.
