MTV VMAs: What Was That About? Nicki Minaj Confronts Miley Cyrus & more HIGHLIGHTS
The 2015 “MTV Video Music Awards” were last night. MILEY CYRUS hosted, and TAYLOR SWIFT won four trophies, including Video of the Year for “Bad Blood”. Here are the other three highlights . . .
1. NICKI MINAJ called MILEY CYRUS the B-word after winning Best Hip-Hop Video for “Anaconda”. It’s because when they first announced the MTV VMA nominations, Nicki complained that she didn’t get enough, because she’s not skinny and white.
Then last week, MILEY CYRUS told the “New York Times“ that Nicki was acing JEALOUS, and called her “not too kind.”
So after winning last night, Nicki said, quote, “And now, back to this [b-word] that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what’s good?” And she shot Miley a mean look.
But Miley replied right away. Quote, “Hey, we’re all in this industry, we all do interviews, and we all know how they manipulate [stuff]. Nicki, contratu-[effing]-lations.”
Only she responded so quickly, some people thought the whole thing was STAGED. Especially since Nicki seemed to smile right before the cameras cut away.
You might remember that TAYLOR SWIFT got in a brief Twitter war with Nicki over her “VMA” complaints too, but they made up. And last night they solidified the peace by taking the stage together. (Here’s video.)
Miley closed out the night with an expletive-filled performance, and ended it by announcing a brand new album online for free.
(Check it out here. WARNING!!! The audio starts automatically, and it’s UNCENSORED.)
(Also getting some exposure last night: MILEY CYRUS’ LEFT BOOB. Check out a picture and video here. Warning! Not only is her breast exposed, but in the video, she says the “T-word”.)

2. JUSTIN BIEBER either CRIED or PRETENDED to cry after doing a mashup of “Where Are U Now” and “What Do You Mean”. It was right after he did some PINK-style wire acrobatics, so maybe his harness was just too tight?
If anything was meant as a message to SELENA GOMEZ though, she didn’t get it. While Justin was performing, she was backstagechowing on burgers with TAYLOR SWIFT and the other “Bad Blood” video girls. They ran in a pack all night.
3. KANYE WEST got the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, and finished his speech by announcing he’s running for PRESIDENT in 2020. TAYLOR SWIFT introduced him with a nod to when he infamously interrupted her.
Quote,”I first met Kanye West six years ago at this show. Since then, we’ve had a lot of time to talk about a lot of different things.” Then Kanye started a rambling speech that stretched over more than 10 agonizing minutes.
He actually started out sounding more humble than usual. He talked about how people perceive him, saying, quote, “When I go to a baseball game and 60,000 people boo me, it crosses my mind a little bit.”
He also SORT OF apologized for interrupting Taylor, saying, quote, “If I had a daughter at that time, would I have went on stage and grabbed the mic from someone else’s?”
And he admitted that in fighting for certain artists, he’s also been DISRESPECTFUL to some artists. But then he started going off on award shows, who deserves to win, and who doesn’t.
He said, quote, “I still don’t understand award shows. I don’t understand how they get five people who work their entire lives . . . to come, stand on a carpet and, for the first time in their lives, be judged on a chopping block and have the opportunity to be considered a loser. I don’t understand it, bruh! I been conflicted, bro! I just wanted people to like me more. But [eff] that, bro!”
He said “bro” a LOT.
He also admitted to some slight REEFER USAGE. He said, quote, “Y’all might be thinking right now, ‘I wonder, 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 then came the big announcement. He said, quote, “We the millennials, bro. This is a new mentality. We’re not going to control our kids with brands. We’re not going to teach low self-esteem and hate to our kids.
“We’re going to teach our kids that they can be something . . . to believe in themselves.
“If my grandfather was here right now, he would not let me back down. I don’t know what I’m [going to] lose after this. It don’t matter, though, because it ain’t about me. It’s about ideas, bro! New ideas, people with ideas, people who believe in truth.
“And yes, as you probably coulda guess by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”
