MTV held the 2022 Video Music Awards on Sunday night, but the show wasn’t all family friendly, especially in the 3rd hour. Måneskin’s Supermodel” performance at the MTV VMAs 2022 was a memorable one, but not for the reasons one would expect. Damiano David’s ass-less chaps weren’t the only things people were talking about, either.
According to Page Six, a few seconds after their performance began, the network cut away to a visual of empty seats for about 40 seconds after their bassist’s top appeared to fall off, causing her breast to be fully exposed.
Victoria De Angelis had moved to the front of the stage as a crowd of dancers surrounded the band. Unfortunately, as everyone jumped and danced, her top dropped to her waist, leaving her exposed.
However, the bassist continued to play despite this. Fans on Twitter expressed their annoyance at MTV deciding to turn away from the performance for a while as well.
“MTV disappointed you chose not to show performance!! Repeated empty seats played! What’s wrong you!? Ruined their performance. Owe Maneskin an apology!”
I mean, Nicky can simulate masturbating on stage, but Victoria de Maneskin can’t show a covered nipple? seriously VMAS?? ☠️☠️☠️☠️💀💀💀💀
While the in-person audience could see the Italian rock band’s performance, viewers at home only saw David’s raunchy performance in the end. MTV cut to a shot from the balcony, so no nudity was seen during the live show. That interesting camera cut still left fans at home to wonder what was going on, and now we know.
