Cher -- an over-the-top diva from a different era -- gave Gaga her award and noted she had been raising eyebrows while Lady Gaga "was still Baby Gaga."

Cher originally wore her outfit in a 1989 music video that was shot on board the USS Missouri. Many networks refused to show the video, and MTV banned it because of Cher's clothing. However, the music network later decided to show it only after 9 p.m.
