Top 5 Can’t Miss Moments From The 2015 MTV VMAs
On Sunday, August 30, 2015, stars flocked to the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles for the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, and as was expected, there was a lot of craziness from wacky red carpet outfits to Miley Cyrus hosting to performances. When placing Cyrus as the host for the night, MTV made it clear they were setting a new level for “anything can happen” in live awards shows and, naturally, Cyrus pushed the limits of how naked one can be on network television with her many barely there styles. Surprisingly however, there was a lot more that made the audience go “what!?” than just Cyrus’s outfits and, in case you missed the show, here are the top 5 moments you have to see from the 2015 VMAs.
5. Kanye Declares 2020 Presidency Run
Even when Kanye West has nothing to do with what is going on on stage, there is no guarantee he won’t just go up there and start popping off about something anyway, and for that reason alone, we knew MTV giving him the spotlight and the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award would mean an over-the-top typical Kanye speech. West rambled for ten minutes, trying to prove how intelligent and deep he really is, but thankfully did not resort to stating he is the “greatest living rockstar,” and after the strange speech he dropped his real big statement. “And yes, as you probably could’ve guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.” Good news Americans, you have four and a half years to move.
4. Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj Make Amends
This awards show had drama before the stage was even set as we all remember the quick and bitter feud that erupted between megastars Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj when the nominations were made. The two ladies have since stated that it was a “misunderstanding” and all is well between the two, but just to prove it, Swift was a surprise guest for Minaj’s opening performance. The two even made fun of their mini-feud by breaking into “Bad Blood” and then ended their duet with a hug.
