The VMAS are shaping up to be quite an interesting show this year, people.
Don’t think so? Well, of course not. The VMAs basically suck. It’s one of those awards shows that aren’t serious about who actually receives awards (kinda like the Kids Choice Awards…or the BET Awards), which turns the whole thing into one, big joke. Almost every year, there’s some scandal erupting around the show, whether its Britney Spears committing career suicide in front of the entire world (remember when that happened?), or Kid Rock knocking Tommy Lee’s block off for stealing his seat next to Diddy (yeah, that happened too…in the same night). Last year, the VMAs were best known for a particular moment in which one of our favorite artists/hot heads, didn’t get the joke, rushed the stage during a 19 year-old white girl’s acceptance speech, and set off a scandal to end all scandals.
Kanye’s career was on life support after the Taylor Swift incident; plans to tour with Lady Gaga were scrapped, President Obama called him a jackass, and West basically went into hiding for about 8 months.
