Kanye West For President: Kanye Announces 2020 Run During Babbling Mess of VMAs Speech
Nope. Nope, nope nope. At the glittery silliness that was the MTV VMAs on Sunday night, Taylor Swift presented the biggest egomaniac in the history of music with a lifetime achievement Vanguard Award trophy – and to Yeezus had some thoughts to share would be an understatement..
Despite a very long, turbulent relationship with MTV and its Video Music Awards, Kanye was offered the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. In his acceptance speech, he rambled nonsensically for over ten minutes, stopping mid-sentence, saying “bro” 17 times, and attempting some sort of new mission statement of the millennials before making the most ridiculous announcement of all: he’s running for president in 2020. Then he proceeded to kill every ounce of coolness the mic drop ever had.
