Not Britney and Christina…
Madonna made a splash when she kissed Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2003, but that wasn't the original plan. According EW, the original plan was for Jennifer Lopez to be the kissee for that performance.
MTV Music Group president Van Toffler said, "It was a long road to get to that Britney and Christina kiss, because they weren't necessarily the first couple of people who were on the hit list. This may be the first time it's revealed, but originally J. Lo was in the mix. That didn't happen. And the thing about Britney and Madonna was they had history, so it was not easy to get them together on the stage. Both Britney and Christina obviously respected Madonna, so only she could pull that off. You have to have that kind of pull."
