Kanye West accepts the Video Vanguard Award

SL) MTV’s VMAs program was colorful and apparently very smokey for Kanye West who admitted to ‘smoking a little something’ before he came to the show. Just a small piece, however, of a 10-minute speech or rant (depending on who you ask) that included an apology to Taylor Swift, a continued push for artists’ rights and a call-out on MTV for exploiting (his reunion with Taylor Swift for ratings.

Kanye was Kanye down to letting the applause of the crowd roar on until his fans got tired. Yeezus was in the building, outspoken and polite all at the same time and humble enough to know that when 60,000 people boo you in one setting, maybe just maybe..it’s not them. However, sometimes it’s best to just keep it short.

Kanye Admits To Smoking Weed, Criticizes MTV

I will say he is the only person I know that can disrespect someone in their own house on their own stage as he is receiving the prestigious and coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and stay for the after party. He was sure to say thank you during his exit.  A relatively calm Kanye spoke from what we’ve come to accept as his heart; and the future presidential kanye-660hpeful kept it honest revealing that he did in fact inhale.

He spoke of the aftermath of interrupting Swift many years ago and criticized the very network that was paying tribute to him. “You know how many times MTV ran that footage again, ’cause it got them more ratings?” He said “bro” a lot.

He ended his speech by announcing, “And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided, in 2020, to run for president.” Thus – the 10-minute speech? A a very pregnant Kim Kardashian looked on with pride.

Taylor Swift Shines

Further proving the friendship between the two, Swift later got up on stage to present West with the much-coveted Video Vanguard Award. Of course, the 2009 incident was mentioned, but it was all in good fun, as Swift said that West has had “one of the greatest careers of all time!”

CNN Reports Taylor Swift gave a nod to the now-infamous VMAs incident from 2009, when Kanye West rushed the stage after Swift beat out Beyonce, proclaiming that “Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.” On Sunday night, Swift was there to present West with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

But, Taylor kept is classy even pledging that West’s “College Dropout” album was the first she purchased on iTunes when she was 12. And she called the rapper her friend.

Swift walked away with a lot of statues including the top honor of Video Of The Year. Taylor also performed with Nicki Minaj. But while Minaj and Swift are all good, it didn’t seem like the same could be said about Minaj and Cyrus.

bad-blood-660While accepting the best hip-hop video award for her song “Anaconda,” Minaj thanked her pastor and proceeded to take a jab at Cyrus over a New York Times story in which Cyrus appeared to side with Swift in her past beef with the rapper.

“And now, back to this b***h that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press,” Minaj said, gesturing at Cyrus. “Miley, what’s good?” The surprising things is considering how ghetto Miley Cyrus is.

Nicki Minaj invites Miley Cyrus to explain her comments in recent New York Times story.

Come on, don’t tell me you weren’t thinking it. I was expecting to see her give Nicki some serious neck rolling action or something, but instead she kept it PC and attributed the beef to media puppet mastery and the twisting of words. Oh, and congratulations! 🙂

Miley Cyrus’ VMA Antics

Like Kanye,  Miley Cyrus is going to do what she wants to do.Her twerking skills at the VMAs in 2013 and all the attention she’s garnered since led to her being selected to host this year’s show, and it was so many things.

Cyrus is known for a lot of things: sticking her tongue out, smoking weed, twerking – and stripping down is one of them. As the host of this year’s VMAs, she delivered, with lots of barely there outfits, including silver-nipple-covering suspenders, a white stomach-and-hip-baring dress and a plastic dress with censor dots.

There were skits about how she acts out on Instagram thanks to her “Instagram Think Tank” and one about her with her grandma, rapper Snoop Dogg and some marijuana brownies.

Cyrus made good use of the tape delay, as she cursed all she wanted, and her wardrobe throughout the evening, well, defied description and the laws of fashion.
