The MTV VMAs happened this weekend and it was everything we expected it to be: mostly dumb.
There were plenty of moments to talk about and Twitter tackled them all. From Nicki Minaj going bananas and calling out Miley Cyrus — was it staged? All the way to Kanye West delivering the most random acceptance speech of all time ending it with announcing his candidacy for U.S. president in 2020. If you didn’t watch it you didn’t miss much because all you need is Twitter to tell you how it went.
Nicki Minaj Calls Out Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus made it her point to call out Nicki Minaj in the press for being “not too kind.” Taylor Swift and Minaj wasn’t having any of it.

Miley Cyrus should be required to serve as Nicki Minaj’s seat for the rest of the night

Demi Lovato Brings Iggy Azalea Out of Her Cave
Everyone thought they were rid of Iggy Azalea but like a phoenix she rose from the ashes onto the outdoor VMA stage to feature on Demi Lovato’s ‘Cool For the Summer’

Justin Bieber Cries/ Justin Bieber’s Hair
Bieber hadn’t performed at the VMAs in over two years. After his comeback performance he openly wept on stage. The scene was of a young man happy to be home after falling off the fame-wagon following a few years of bad behavior. But also, his horrid hairdo could’ve contributed to the tears.

Kanye West’s Acceptance Speech
Kanye won the Video Vanguard Award and he accepted it the way any rational person would… just kidding! He rambled on for over five minutes about fresh-pressed juice, being a bad guy, running for president in 2020 and he also overused the word “bro.”
And everyone thought @kanyewest couldn’t do comedy.

Miley Cyrus Smokes Weed
In case you hadn’t heard, Miley Cyrus grew up and now she smokes weed. She made reference to weed dozens of times in the span of a two-and-a-half-hour award show. It was exhausting.
