The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards turned out to be one of the most eventful celebrity events so far this year. Here are four outrageous things that happened at this year’s awards:
1. Miley Cyrus’ selection of barely there outfits
Miley never fails to surprise us! She wore an array of revealing stage outfits to present the show…
2. Kanye West announced he will run for president in 2020!
Taylor Swift presented Kanye West with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. He finished his 11-minute speech by announcing “And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided, in 2020, to run for president.” WHAT?!
3. Nicki Minaj called Miley Cyrus a b****!
While accepting the best hip-hop video award for her song “Anaconda,” Minaj thanked her pastor and proceeded to call out Miley over a story that was printed in The New York Times.
“And now, back to this b***h that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press,” Nicki said, gesturing at Miley. “Miley, what’s good?”
Miley responded casually, saying, “Hey, we’re all in this industry, we all do interviews, and we all know how they manipulate s**t. Nicki, congratulations.”
4. Justin Bieber cried
Justin Bieber performed his songs ‘Where Are You Now’ and ‘What Do You Mean?’ and at the end of the performance appeared to be crying. He seemed to be grateful for support from fans after criticism over his bad boy ways.
