Why is the MTV Music Award an astronaut?
Because the most ubiquitous bumper video logo shown on MTV in its early years featured footage of the first rocket to the moon, and the first man walking on the moon with the (American) flag. It was Xeroxed and rotoscoped, then hand-colored with markers. Instead of the American flag, the flag had the MTV logo on it, flashing in different colors and patterns. This image became iconic and representative of MTV as a brand. The MTV trademark music riff (complete with guitar wow) is as iconic and well-known as the moon landing image to the first viewers of MTV.

Which member of the band rage against machine climbed to the top of the podium at the 2000 MTV music awards?
Dire straits was the 1st on Mtv Europe with "Money for nothing". Biggles was 1st in America with "Video killed the radio star".
Taylor Swift won the award for best female music video (For her hit song "You Belong With Me"). When she started giving her speech, Kanye West came on stage, grabbed the micro…phone away from her and said "Now Taylor, I'm really happy for ya, nut Beyonce made one of the best videos of all time! Of all time!" An audience camera zoomed in on Beyonce saying "Oh my god, I can't believe he did that (although you couldn't hear it because everyone was 'boo'ing Kanye. After this, Taylor just took the microphone back, blushed a little and nervously said "Um, thank you". And walked off stage. It was said after this incident, she went backstage and cried. What 19 year old music sensation wouldn't? Then (Thank goodness) Kanye West was escorted out of the award ceremoney, but not before he got an earful from Taylor's mom. Later, Beyonce won an award. Beyonce invited Taylor up to finish her speech. Whenever Kanye's name was mentioned that night, he was booed. Before he was escorted out, P!nk got up to go to the bathroom and mumbled something under her breath when she passed Kanye's seat. Many celebrities twittered, gracing Taylor for how she handled things.Kellie Pickler twittered "Congratulatons, Tater tot. You handled the event with grace."Katy Perry twittered "F--- u Kanye, it;s like you stepped on a kitten"P!nk twittered "You are the biggest living piece of s--- on Earth"

At MTV music awards did flea of red hot chillie peppers throw his guitar up and have it come down and hit him in the head?
Answer No it was Kirst Novoselic from Nirvana. After the bass hit himin the head, he stagard over towards Kirt Cobain who then pushed thinking he was playing.
It popularized the music video and became a central location for promoting new artists. With MTV, fans had access to music and music news all in one spot.
Answer they go buy how the artists did on the billboard charts and how well their records and singles sold.
