Jackson, whose b-day was the same day as the MTV awards, was to be given a cake and a small award to celebrate. As singer Britney Spears was introducing Jackson, she referred to the enigmatic star as "..in my opinion, is the Artist of the Millenium."
She then presented him with a treble-shaped trophy as a birthday present which he apparently mistook for the Artist of the Millenium Award. "When I was a little boy growing up in Indiana, I never dreamed of getting the Artist of the MA" said Jackson.
Jackson then went on to thank his family, God, and even magician David Blaine. Apparently no one had the heart to correct the pop legend until after the show. "There is no such honor," MTV soon announced. "It was an unfortunate misunderstanding"
i watched the VMA's on MTV the other night and saw him do this lol..
