The Boy Is Mine VMA Performance Resurfaces


This week chatty patty music producer Dallas Austin revealed R&B singer Monica sucker punched Brandy just hours before the one and only live performance of their smash hit duet, 'The Boy is Mine,' at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards [click here if you missed that].

Coincidentally MTV opened the vaults this week and shared the long lost performance online....

Baybeeee I can feel the fever. Monica was giving her Scarlet’s fever with her energy. The show had to go on.

When music was actually worth listening to, both ladies are talented and very good singers, but Monica was a hoodrat and obviously jealous of Brandy, hopefully she Monica has turned in her hoodrat card and matured. They sang the hell out that song but like a poster said you could sense the tension. I miss this era of music compared to the trash passing for music these days.

Singing about the boy is mine.... Of course both singers have to act like they are really fighting over a boy. Listen to the lyrics. Folks love to stir up drama. Good ole 90's!

@2:27 that's not necessarily true. go look at their 2nd ever performance of it, they are joking around and having fun.

You can't compare a televised huge performance with the way they acted at s all venue performance! Let's put on our thinking caps.

I would've beat Monica's "Popeye Olive Oil" bird ass like she stole something had she put hands on me... she deserved it & still does to this day, quiet as it's kept.

@331 pm. That performance was like 5 years ago while this mtv one was what, 1999. I'm sure What the producer said still stands correct. Monica needs her ass molly whooped

Kinda ironic their hit is Boy is mine but neither of them could keep one in real life.

@2:50 you a God damn lie. Monica sounded just like the record. Brandy sung on a lower key and missed 90% of the notes she should have hit. Dont cap for that broad.

What is the purpose of rehashing old conflicts between 2 black women? Both are talented vocalists. This is a distraction. Thank goodness for Blacks who prioritize unification and nation-building.

@ 3:31 right they were a lot older and wiser during that performance and probably buried the hatchet

Monica is a ghetto ass rat. No wonder Brandy's career soared whilst hers floored. A stank ghetto attitude and mentality will limit your growth as an individual.
