The MTV Video Music Awards are happening this weekend (August 28). And while we’re sure some high-profile pairs will be present for the festivities, nothing beats all the star couples who used to make their way to the VMAs back in the day. (Seriously, who else has looked at the red carpet for the show over the last few years and asked, “Wait, who is this?”) Some couples have gone on to become husband and wife and make it last, like Beyoncé and Jay-Z, pictured in ’00s bronze-y fashion below at the 2004 VMAs.
