Kanye West big announcement at the 2015 MTV VMAS – he’s running for president in 2020. And that means – if elected – Kim Kardashian will be the First Lady, with her own sex tape for sale – that’s if the couple stays married. This exciting announcement was made at that end of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard acceptance speech.
Taylor Swift – who introduced Kanye – praised the hit-maker saying he had a “profound influence on my childhood.” Oh, so that explains what’s wrong with her… Cameras caught Kim and Kanye grinning ear to ear during Taylor Swift’s speech in which she said that Kanye “has had one of the greatest career of all time!”
Taking the stage following the intro Kanye apologized to Taylor for his behavior at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards and the two superstars hugged. The audience gave Kanye West a standing ovation and he looked around – perhaps in awe – as Taylor Swift and his wife Kim Kardashian were beaming and clapping.
Cracking a smile and the audience began chanting “Yeezus, Yeezus.” Placing the award on the floor, Kanye West thanked Taylor for presenting him with the Vanguard Video Award and recounted the day he met Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV VMAs. Just in case you don’t remember, Kanye stormed the stage and grabbed the mic out of the “Bad Blood” singer’s hand.
In a long-winded speech – Kanye talked about being in the grocery store with his daughter North discussing fresh juice, being at a baseball game and 60,000 people boo him – said that night sometimes crosses his mind. Kanye shared his thoughts with the audience – If he had to do it all again would he have worn a leather shirt? Would he have drunk a half a bottle of Hennessy and shared it with the audience? “You all know that you drink that bottle, too!” A fan shouted from the audience, “I love you!”
“I didn’t know how to say the right thing, the perfect thing,” Kanye said after stating he fights for artists – but at the same time has disrespected them. You have to give the audience credit, they sat there and listened to Kim Kardashian’s husband ramble on, applauding many times during the 13 minute speech – in which Kanye admitted he may have “rolled a little something” before the show. And then Kanye shared perhaps the most thrilling news of the night. “And yes, as you probably coulda guessed by this moment, I have decided to run for president in 2020.” The audience went wild as the “Gold Digger” singer dropped the mic and exited the stage.
