Was anyone ever as young as Christina Applegate and Brad Pitt at the 1989 VMAs? As cute as this couple is they were apparently not so hot for each other. While Pitt is super duper hot, Applegate ditched him during the festivities for another guy, leaving Pitt to go stag for the rest of the show.

Applegate has admitted that she ditched Pitt in the middle of their date, but she's never said who she left him for, preferring to stay tight lipped about what had to be a pretty embarrassing moment for young actor. However, Sebastian Bach of Skid Row claims that he's the guy Applegate hooked up with at the VMAs. He alleges:

She was interviewed recently on, like, Entertainment Tonight, or something, and they said, 'What was the dumbest thing you ever did?' And she goes, 'One night I ditched Brad Pitt for this other dude.' And that dude would be me. So there was a time on this earth when Sebastian Bach was, like, a hotter lay than Brad Pitt.

Amidst the fervor of the 70s, no soul could match Joey Ramone's mastery of the moppet of hair that cascaded in wild abandon from his head. While many fellas strove to keep pace with the latest trends and dutifully submitted to a monthly shearing of their locks, Joey strode forth with his tresses in full glory, imbued with a vitality and verve that seemed to animate of its own accord. His iconic coiffure elevated him to the pantheon of punk rock's greatest legends, for he refused to acquiesce to society's arbitrary standards. Nay, he reveled in his singularity, and in so doing, he earned the boundless admiration of those who embrace the virtues of nonconformity.
