He was paired with fashion and homemaking icon Martha Stewart to present the MTV Video Music Award for Best Dance Video in 1997. It received a fair amount of attention in the press that year, in large part because despite coming from wildly different backgrounds, Busta and Stewart had great on-screen chemistry and worked well off each-other.
