-2000 MTV VMAs
(clears his throat
and laughs) Ummm...last year when I won an award, I wasn't really expecting it...and I didn't have like a speech or anything
prepared. It kinda had-it caught me off guard. So this year, I brought a speech with me already prepared in case I might win.
(reaches into his pocket) I got it right here. (looks for it in pocket, but only finds some drugs that fall out onto the floor)
Alright, I ain't really got no speech. I can't find right now, but thank you.

Alright, U know I thought it was about to go down, right? Christina and Britney just came out here. I thought they was presentin'

stuck with me and all that stuff and ummm (laughs). This is crazy. I wanna thank the fans. Hold on-I wanna (audience cheersEM
laughs again) Listen. I wanna thank the fans first and foremost. But really, every time that like a relative sues me or (laughs)
every time-every time a critic tries to slam me in the press or whatever, I sell more records, so I really wanna thank you
people for making my record as big as it is. (Lifts up moon man award) I'm gonna take this home and put it right between my
Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera posters.
