Now I know it has been a few days since the Video Music Awards but I still have to give my opinion. I am a college kid so I stay busy….BUT HERE I GO!!!
First let me start with Miley Cyrus who was the host. I mean no harm and I do not mean to offend anyone or her but….I DID NOT ENJOY HER AS A HOST!!! Now as a person she is great and her music I do enjoy but as a host not so much. I mean let’s be serious we know Miley as a Disney star gone wrong in almost a positive way as if she branded herself into a new person even though we know where she started…Hannah Montana. Now her performance to me was kind of expected. I knew it was going to be something outrageous so that was nothing new to me. But overall she is cool but as a host she….IS NOT!!!
Kanye West is running for president in 2020. Along with him announcing that he also pretty much bashed MTV for flawing his image with the whole him getting on stage and stealing Taylor Swift’s shine. Now him running for president sounds pretty cool to watch if he really does because…What political party will he be tied to?
Rapper Nicki Minaj and singer Taylor Swift made up after their little Twitter beef or whatever you want to call it going on as they performed together. Which was fun to watch nothing special there.
Now time for the biggest thing that happen….NICKI MINAJ WHEN SHE FLAMED MILEY CYRUS FOR RUNNING THAT MOUTH!!! I laughed for one whole hour and kept replaying it because Miley did not know how to reply back to Nicki. Now if you did not know what Miley said before the VMA’s she said to a New York Times reporter:
“People forget that the choices that they make and how they treat people in life affect you in a really big way. If you do things with an open heart and you come at things with love, you would be heard and I would respect your statement. But I don’t respect your statement because of the anger that came with it. […] If you want to make it about race, there’s a way you could do that. But don’t make it just about yourself. Say: ‘This is the reason why I think it’s important to be nominated. There’s girls everywhere with this body type.I know you can make it seem like, ‘Oh I just don’t understand because I’m a white pop star. I know the statistics. I know what’s going on in the world… But to be honest, I don’t think MTV did that on purpose. What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite. I think there’s a way you speak to people with openness and love. You don’t have to start this pop star against pop star war. It became Nicki Minaj and Taylor in a fight, so now the story isn’t even on what you wanted it to be about.”
So of course with that Nicki Minaj felt the need to address it on the VMA’s with her acceptance for winning best hip-hop for “Anaconda.” Everyone was thanked including her pastor and then she said:
“And now back to this b— that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press,” Minaj snapped. “Miley, what’s good?!”
After those words parted her lips #ClapBackSeason began. Miley replied back by saying:
“Hey, we’re all in this industry, we all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate s—,” she replied. “Nicki, congratulations.”
With Cyrus saying that her mic has already been cut off and she was saying:
“Don’t play with me, b—- …don’t play with me.”
Real or fake it made my night.
I SPOKE ON IT!!!
