Remember That Time Justin Bieber Brought A Snake To The VMAs?

Snakes, snakes, snakes!!!!!!!!!

People bring the weirdest things to the VMAs. From meat dresses and hot sauce to monster trucks and elephants, you just never know what will happen.

And though we don't know if we'll see a snake in Nicki Minaj's performance of "Anaconda" at tonight's 2014 MTV Video Music Awards after that rehearsal incident the other day, we do know that snakes have a long history at the show.

Like, remember that time Justin Bieber planted a kiss on his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez during the 2011 pre-show? And remember how she asked him about his pet snake, Johnson?


Justin's had plenty of firsts, but he was definitely not the first one to wrap a slithering reptile around his arm at the VMAs. Britney Spears did it a decade earlier at the 2001 show, and her snake was... way bigger.
