Remember when MTV (music television) actually used to play music videos on TV? Yeah, we do too. Pour one out for the good ol' days...

After three years of airing 'round-the-clock music, MTV unleashed a phenomenon known as Video Music Awards upon the world in 1984.

The idea? To celebrate the artists that brought our favorite tunes to life on the small screen and intersperse said awards with live performances from those very artists.

That was probably where MTV went wrong. Or very, very right.

What happened after that first very crazy VMA show in 1984 when Madonna's "Like a Virgin" took on new life was that the ante was summarily upped.

Every musical act to come would need to bring their A-Game if they'd make headlines the next morning. Plenty of them, from Madge to Miley, managed to do just fine.

In honor of the 30th MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night, let's take a walk down memory lane to relive the 17 craziest moments in VMA history ...

It hasn't been a great week for love in Hollywood.

Ariana Grande split from Jai Brooks because he wasn't supportive of her. Ramona Singer ended her marriage because her husband Mario was unfaithful.

Joe Jonas stopped giving it to Blanda Eggenschwiler. Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran ... we don't know what is going on there. But it appears to be over.

But at least all of the above take solace in the following: they aren't alone. Far from it, in fact, as a number of high-profile romances have already met their demise in 2014. 

We're not taking sides. We're not judging the basis for these break-ups. We're just running down the celebrities who have found themselves single so far this year:

Having met with a divorce lawyer to assess her crumbling union, Kendra Wilkinson also needs to let loose to make sure she doesn't get totally depressed.

Enter Robin Thicke, a man who knows a thing or two about crumbling marriages!

Stepping out with her girlfriends for the second time in as many weeks, the mother of two had dinner at Aventine Hollywood before hitting up a nearby lounge.

  • Hank and Kendra Pic
  • Laying It on Thicke

"Kendra had a couple of drinks ... she was being social and dancing," says the source, who notes that Thicke and rapper Too Short hung with her.

"It was a super fun night, but nothing too crazy." Like closing down the club.

That said, things on the home front are less of a party.

Despite reports that Kendra is looking to capitalize on Hank Baskett's cheating scandal, People sources say there's likely no going back to him now.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton separated back in March, inspiring Thicke to pen countless musical tributes in an effort to save his marriage.

Many began to wonder if Thicke and Patton had faked their breakup, as the timing seemed suspiciously well-coordinated with the release of Thicke's latest studio album (titled, of course, Paula).

Now it seems there was nothing fraudulent about Robin's pain after all, as TMZ reports that Thicke has given up his reconciliation efforts and is now waiting for Patton to file for divorce.

Yes, though he's said to have admitted privately that his marriage will soon be over, Thicke refuses to be the one to officially end it.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton broke up back in March, but many fans and industry insiders expressed their suspicions that the couple's marital woes were part of a ploy to promote Robin's new album.

Claims that Robin and Paula faked their separation seemed to be substantiated by Thicke's constant musical pleas to "get her back."

How did he write all these lovelorn songs so fast? Does he expect us to believe that the timing of the split just happened to coincide with the release of his new album?

Well, according to an interview Robin gave New York radio station Hot 97 today, the breakup is real. So real in fact, that he hasn't seen the mother of his child in four months!

#AskThicke? More like #FailHard.

In anticipation of Robin Thicke dropping his new album today, VH1 asked fans last night to submit questions for an interview with the singer.

Via Twitter, producers wrote to followers: "Have a burning question for @robinthicke? Submit your ?s for tomorrow's Twitter Q+A using #AskThicke!"

Simple enough, right? Yes. But also rather humiliating for the artist.

More than inquiring about various tracks or tour dates, many took this opportunity to pummel Thicke with negative questions, insulting him for trying to win Paula Patton on stage and for grinding all up on Miley Cyrus at the 2013 VMAs.

Just how badly did critics give it to Thicke? Let's just say the following Tweets (all 100% real) didn't exactly blur any lines regarding their contempt for the crooner:

#AskThicke...
Did you really write a rape anthem as a love song for your wife and are you still wondering why she left you?

Robin Thicke was it again last night.

The turned the 2014 BET Awards into his own version of relationship therapy, dedicating the track "Forever Love" to estranged wife Paula Patton and telling the crowd prior to performing:

"I’d like to dedicate this song to my wife, and say, 'I miss you, and I’m sorry.' This is called Forever Love."

Thicke has pulled this maneuver numerous times since splitting from Patton several months ago.

He tried to get Patton back at the Billboard Music Awards in May and openly pleaded with the actress during various concert stops during his spring tour.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton "broke up," back in February, but now the very public nature of their separation and his attempts to get back in his wife's good graces are raising questions as to whether the whole thing is simply a stunt cooked up by Thicke's PR team.

Earlier this week, Thicke debuted the video for his new single entitled - you guessed it! - "Get Her Back," from the album called simply - you guessed it again! - Paula.

Not only did Thicke's troubled love life help the singer secure a spot in the headlines right in the midst of his post-"Blurred Lines" career slump, he seemed to churn out an album's worth of content devoted to his estranged wife in remarkably quick fashion.

Skeptics are likening the Thicke-Patton separation to Justin Bieber's stolen laptop stunt, which proved to be simply a gimmick designed to help Bieber promote his single "Beauty and a Beat."

Robin Thicke wants to get back together with his estranged wife Paula Patton, and he's making sure the whole world knows it.

First, Thicke named his new album "Paula" (subtle), now he's released a music video that's basically a 4-minute apology for effing things up the first time around.

While Robin bemoans the state of his relationship with blood on his face (?) angry text messages flash across the screen...and, man, do they paint a disturbing picture of Paula and Robin's relationship.

Highlights include: "I kept trying to warn you you were pushing me too far;" "You drink too much;" and "Why why why why why???" 

Needless to say, "Blurred Lines" it ain't.

We're sorry for your relationship troubles, Robin, but we'd like to offer some career advice: less depressing divorce drama and more naked Emily Ratajkowski.

Robin Thicke is really pulling out all the stops in his quest to win Paula Patton back. Just when we think there aren't more stops he can pull out, well ...

Not only did he write a new single "Get Her Back" about his estranged wife, he is now reportedly naming his upcoming album Paula in her honor!

The album, which will contain "Get Her Back," is set to drop on July 1.

Since Robin Thicke and Paula Patton announced their split in late February, he has embarked on a shameless, public effort to do as his single implies.

Making his intentions known everywhere from celebrity gossip outlets to the 2014 Billboard Music Awards stage and now his album name, he misses her.

Hard.
