It's not a music awards show without someone taking the stage uninvited.
Tonight's unwelcome guest at the MTV Video Music Awards was someone who calls himself "6" -- or maybe he spells it "six," like the girl from 'Blossom'? UPDATE: It's "Sixx," of course... and apparently he's done this before.
In any case, he jumped on stage from the audience just as Panic! at the Disco arrived to accept the night's final award for Video of the Year. Grabbing the microphone from one of the band members as they walked on stage, he said something about MTV not giving him his own show, then plugged his web site -- mtv6000.com (which promptly crashed) -- before being tackled by security and ushered off the stage.
Jennifer Lopez (on stage to present the award) was impressively cool, refusing to hand him the band's moon man, despite his best efforts:
UPDATE (9/1/06): According to their now semi-functional web site, Sixx and friends are selling a DVD ("From the Hood to Hollywood") about how they crash music awards shows:
"From the Hood to Hollywood chronicles the story of an upstart film company founded by two struggling film makers Nicholas "Sixx" King and Brooklyn Jhonn. After years of being snubbed by the record industry for A-list music video jobs , Sixx and Jhonn decided that the only breaks ever given in show business are the breaks you give YOURSELF! The questions like Who are you? And what have you done would soon be unecessary . The duo along with their intern Tyla planned to pull the ULTIMATE independent project that would irradiate any such questions. They decided to film their rise to stardom by joining the music industry's celebrity's [sic] in their moments of glory. Sixx captivates audiences worldwide with humorous antics at the world's most prestigious award shows. "
