Happy 30th, MTV! To Celebrate, the 30 Most Memorable Model/Musician Couples

We’re sure that when cavemen banged out rhythms on old animal skulls, all the most gorgeous cave girls immediately came running. While musicians have never had a hard time picking up women, it's safe to say MTV made it easier for them. The era of the model/musician relationship bloomed during the MTV era--models and musicians were frequently thrown together during video shoots, which was a job that hadn't existed for models before. MTV just turned 30, and to honor the music channel which helped to give musicians faces and personalities, here’s our roundup of the 30 best (and strangest) model/musician pairings through the years.

, Naomi Campbell really earned this slide. She dated Diddy (well, it was a rumor), Usher, and Adam Clayton. Rumors also had her dating Tommy Lee (!!) and Eric Clapton. Not a bad record.
