This is the infamous photo of Anthony Kiedis kissing Eddie Vedder at the 1992 MTV Music Video Awards on September 9, 1992 at Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles. Apparently, Kiedis had said he was in love with Vedder’s singing voice and wanted to show his “affection” for it.
Here’s another photo of Vedder post Kiedis kiss.
Here’s another uncropped photo of the kiss!!!
In order to just stop any rumors of Vedder’s sexuality, here’s Eddie at the same award show in the same outfit kissing his ex-wife Beth Liebling.
Vedder & Kiedis were no strangers as the Red Hot Chili Peppers brought Nirvana & Pearl Jam & Smashing Pumpkins out on the road with them in what might be the best non-festival concert line-up ever. Click photo for details on that 1991 tour.
