From Miley Cyrus’ crazy outfits, to disses and crazy speeches from Kanye West, this year’s VMA’s gave everyone something to talk about. Oh, and they’re were winners, too!
The MTV VMA awards are always a spectacle, and this year’s show not only featured great performances, but was right on PR cue with planned stunts (Nicki Minaj invites T-Swift on stage to show they have no bad blood), disses (Nicki Minaj sleights Miley Cyrus) and ridiculous and the now traditional speech by Kanye West. He’s running for President in 2020.
Of course, the queen of pop Taylor Swift accepted her many VMA awards, along with her celebrity loyal subjects in tow, including Best Video of the Year for “Bad Blood.”
