Nicki Minaj Calls Miley A B*tch During Her Acceptance Speech!
Everyone knows that Nicki Minaj says literally whatever is on her mind, but viewers everywhere were shocked when during her acceptance speech for Best Hip-Hop Video for Anaconda, Nicki took the opportunity to call out Miley for some comments that were made during a New York Times interview last week. Uh, awkward!!!!!! Miley handled it like a pro, which only added fuel to the fire.”Hey, we are all in this industry and we all do interviews and say s–t,” Miley replied. “Nicki, congratuf–kinglations.” #BURN
Kanye West Accepts The Video Vanguard Award…Oh, And Announces He’s Running For President In 2020!
In perhaps the most Kanye West moment of ALL TIME (and that’s saying a lot), Kanye took to the VMA stage to accept the Video Vanguard Award from former arch enemy Taylor Swift. Not only did he take a full minute to soak in the applause and “Kanye! Kanye!” chants, but he went on to talk for nearly ten more minutes…and we’re still not quite sure what he said! That is, except for the very last sentence of his speech. “And … in 2020, I have decided to run for president.” Wait, what?!?!?
Justin Bieber Is So Moved By His Own Performance That He Bursts Into Tears Sometimes a magical live musical performance can bring you to tears, and if you’re Justin Bieber, you’ve never been more moved than by your own awesomeness. After wowing the crowd with his new song “What Do You Mean?” Justin just couldn’t contain his emotions and burst into tears on the VMA stage. It’s been a soul-searching year for you so you let it all out, Justin!
Miley Cyrus Drops Her Surprise New Album To Close The Show
You didn’t think Miley Cyrus was really going to host the show without performing, did you?! To close out the epic show, Miley took to the stage with 30 of the most popular drag queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race and slated it with a performance of her new song “Dooo It.” That’s right, new song! Because then sneaky Miley surprised everyone by announcing that she secretly dropped a new album online during the VMAs called “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz” — and it’s free!
