Ex-MTV VJ Kennedy Remembers the Time She Got Explicit Next To Rudy Giuliani

Lisa Kennedy Montgomery

Former MTV VJ Kennedy, now a Los Angeles radio DJ, still has fond memories of her 1992-1997 stint at the cable channel. That's why she subtitled her new memoir, The Kennedy Chronicles (out Tuesday), The Golden Age of MTV Through Rose-Colored Glasses. "The MTV studio was where you wanted to be," she says.

But one of her most vivid memories is of simulating oral sex with a microphone while standing next to NYC's then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani during the 1994 Video Music Awards. Kennedy says she did it in order to win over a hostile audience — and it almost worked.

Top Moments: Pretty Little's "Pretty Eyes" and Now... Here's Snooki with the News

Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi

Our top moments of the week:

12. Worst Kiss: Bachelor Pad wouldn't be complete (and by "complete" we mean "characteristically disgusting and bad for humanity") without a kissing contest. Holly and Blake release some sexual tension when they make out (for a while actually) during the blindfolded competition. But as if making out in front of your housemates isn't bad enough, Holly's ex-fiancé Michael has to watch the whole thing. Awk-ward!

11. Worst Scare: Talk about heated competition! read more

Watercooler: What Did We Miss at the MTV Video Music Awards?

Lil Wayne

Power? We don't need no stinking power... we have you!

True story: About halfway into last night's VMAs — thanks to a certain city's top-notch post-Hurricane Irene repair work — Watercooler Central actually lost power. One minute, Adele is reminding us what singing sounds like without autotune, the next minute, total darkness. If only we'd been blessed with the absence of cable during Lady Gaga's drag-king opening performance. That pompadoured greaser mess looked like something out of RuPaul's The Outsiders.

MTV Video Music Awards Go Gaga!

Lady Gaga

For Lady Gaga, 13 could be a lucky number. The chameleonic artist is nominated for a baker's dozen of Moonman trophies at this year's MTV Video Music Awards, including two — for "Bad Romance" and "Telephone" — in the coveted Video of the Year category.
