Top 5 WTF Moments From The VMAs 2k15
We have to say it. Last night’s award show got WEIRD. The VMAs are a show unlike any other. Filled with drama, intrigue and some of pop culture’s most iconic moments, this year was no different. Who’s really surprised though? Between Miley hosting, and Kanye winning the lifetime achievement award, things were bound to get at least a little weird. However, none of us could have predicted the beefs, reunions, and mental breakdowns that happened last night. So we’re here to break down the Top 5 WTF Moments from the VMAs.
Justin Bieber Debuts His New Song… Then Sobs???
These days it seems that JBiebs is in headlines for anything but his music. From getting arrested to having his monkey taken away by the German government (yes, that’s real), these past few years have been a little hard on the original Youtube sensation. However, last night was a complete 180. After doing a performance for his new single ‘What Do You Mean?’ the crowd went wild and Justin… went in the exact opposite direction and started sobbing. Was it because of all the fan love? What it because he finally realized he’s kinda been a little shit head? Was it because of his new Kate Gosselin-style haircut? Did he just get something in his eye? Who knows.
Literally All of Miley Cyrus’ Outfits
If you follow Miley on Insta, then you know about her progress into more extreme fashion. With 11 outfits total, the hostess got more than a few double takes throughout the night. From wearing a chandelier, to wearing a face, to the hottest cut-out gogo outfit ever, the kitsch queen was killing it with her fashion choices. Where do we get a pair of those white boots? Or a LGBT flag/dress? Or an inflatable dress promoting her new song (which came along with an entire album that’s streaming now)? Miley, teach us your ways!
Nicki Calling Out Miley
Did anyone check post-show if Miley was still alive? Because last night she got called the fuck out, and Nicki made it clear she was out for blood. After accepting the Best Hip-Hop video for ‘Anaconda’, the OG rap goddess had a few choice words to dole out to the show’s host. “And now, back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press,” Minaj said, referencing the pop star’s NYTimes interview, where she criticized the trap queen’s response to not being nominated for Video of the Year. The pop princess blamed it on media manipulation when Nicki put her in her place, saying, “Miley, what’s good?“One thing was made clear though: don’t mess with the Queen.
TSwift Mending All the Beefs
However Nicki wasn’t all about beefing last night. She brought out Taylor Swift during her performance of ‘The Night Is Still Young’ for a duet. The singers did a little bit from TSwift’s ‘Bad Blood’ and then ironically hugged it out right after. That wasn’t the only ‘bad blood’ that Taylor put to rest, as she presented Kanye with his Vanguard Award. The relationship came full circle when the pop star introduced him saying, “I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you finish, but Kanye has had one of the greatest careers of all time!” Who knew back in 2009 that it would all come back to this? But that brings us to our next moment…
… Kanye’s 12 minute acceptance speech where he announced he would be running for president in 2020 and then literally dropped the mic. This whole segment could be filled with Yeezy’s acceptance quotes, so it will be.
“You know I think about when I’m in the grocery store with my daughter and I have a really great conversation about fresh juice.”
“Would I have worn a leather shirt? Would I have drank half a bottle of Hennessy and gave the rest of it to the audience?”
“Did he smoke something before he came out here?’ The answer is yes, I rolled up a little something. I knocked the edge off!”
“And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”
