Kanye West accepted his Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at this past Sunday’s MTV VMA’s, and during his acceptance speech made his official announcement that he is running for President in 2020. But MTV is thinking something less political for the rapper.
Before he runs for POTUS, Kanye West may have another task to complete – hosting next year’s VMAs.
The rapper, 38, gave a 12-minute rambling speech after accepting his award, and the rant was so thrilling to producers that they reportedly followed Ye to his dressing room praising him.
According to TMZ, network producers were enamored of Kanye’s off-the-cuff remarks that even criticized MTV and awards shows in general. Kanye was only supposed to speak for two minutes but the rant was so captivating, producers in the control room during the live telecast were told to let him go on without interruption.
Everyone thought it was extremely entertaining and after Kanye left the stage, an MTV honcho followed him to his dressing room and gushed about what he’d said. Now, execs are clamoring for him to host the event in 2016.
We just have to wait & see if he accepts..
