The Best 2015 VMAs Backstage Photos Include Justin Bieber "Kissing" Britney Spears, OMG

It pretty much goes without saying that the 2015 MTV VMAs was straight iconic. I mean, if Miley Cyrus' outrageous hosting antics, Kanye West's even more outrageous declaration that he'll be running for president in 2020 and Justin Bieber actually crying don't make this one for the record books, then I am officially renouncing my obsession with pop culture. Of course, everyone is well aware of the cray cray antics that happened onstage on Sunday night, but went down in the backstage photos at the 2015 VMAs? Let's investigate.

One of the best things about awards shows in general is that things get crazy meta and everyone's fave celebs all hang out together and pose for super enviable, super Insta-worthy pictures together backstage. And the best thing about the VMAs are these exact moments, because things sometimes tend to get just a little out of hand. While the Academy Awards are one classy AF affair, the VMAs are all about letting loose and getting wild — and when there are cameras backstage to capture all of that, well, the Internet just eats that kind of stuff for breakfast.

Check out some of the best behind-the-scenes moments from the 2015 MTV VMAs:
