The Biggest Moments of the 2015 VMAs
Music Mix Daily Staff
MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMAs) aired last night, with Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” premiering before the show (featuring a jet-black haired Swift and portraying dream versus reality with a couple great twists!). Not only did Swift premiere the new video, she also won Video of the Year for “Bad Blood“ featuring Kendrick Lamar, and took home two awards for “Blank Spaces“ – Best Pop Video and Best Female Video.
With Miley Cyrus hosting the show (and performing!), the VMAs were full of young, beautiful and energy-filled performances by the likes of Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj (who basically showed the world she and T-Swift are good, after an apparent tiff, by bringing her on the stage and mashing “The Night is Still Young“ with “Bad Blood“), Pharrell Williams and The Weekend, who are skyrocketing to success, and Demi Lovato.
Other big winners were Fall Out Boy, who won Best Rock Video for their hit “Uma Thurman” and Nicki Minaj who won Best Hip Hop Video for “Anaconda.” The Best Male Video went to Mark Ronson for “Uptown Funk” featuring Bruno Mars and the Artist to Watch went to rapper Fetty Wap, who we will certainly be watching this coming year!
Of course, the night was not free of controversy, with Kanye West taking time on the mic to discuss, yet again, the fact that certain people should have won certain awards. Before dropping his mic, he also took time to announce a future run for President of the United States!
This was technically as an apology for his past behavior, but we think it is time he just moved on, like the rest of us would like to! Although, we should admit that Swift, who presented him with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, may have egged on the apology with her reference, “and imma let you finish, but Kanye West has had one of the greatest careers of all time.” Sassy as can be!
