The 35th MTV Video Music Awards Ceremony was dedicated to the recently murdered Areta Franklin. Madonna, who celebrated her 60th birthday on the day of the death of the soul queen, said that the song You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman was the beginning of her musical career.
She auditioned for a dancer in France and performed exactly that hit by Areta. "I saw that they did not take me seriously and why would they do it?" Some poor white girl comes and wants to sing the song of one of the greatest soul singers ever born, I went on stage and started singing, " said Madonna. Aresta's fans are critical of the singer's speech because they do not think she paid tribute to the soul queen, but she noticed that she was only talking about herself.
The big winner of the ceremony is the Cuban-American singer Camilla Cabano. She got the best video and performance class of the year. Caribbean B, with a record number of nominations of 12, left with 3 figurines. The duo of Beyonce and Jay Sea only took two prizes in technical categories. Michael Avangard's general avant-garde prize, presented to Jennifer Lopez.
