Because of Michael Jackson’s Misinterpretation of the Situation
During the 2002 Video Music Awards, there was a major misunderstanding. On his birthday, Britney Spears presented him with a statue, and the Academy Awards show took a few moments to recognise his accomplishments as well.Jackson, on the other hand, was referred to as “the artist of the millennium” by Spears in a snide manner.
For his part, Jackson appeared to be accepting the award and delivered a speech to reflect that assumption. Because the award he was referring to didn’t exist, everyone in the audience was left scratching their heads.
