The couples were out and making their arrivals at the 2015 MTV VMAs Sunday night. Check out Kanye and wife Kim, Miguel and his girlfriend Nazanin, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, and more inside...
Last night at the Microsoft Theater, the couples put on their date night best and hit the carpet of the MTV VMAs:
Kanye had his pregnant wife right buy his side on his big night of receiving the Video Vanguard Award.
They whispered into each other's year as usual as Kanye stared at -- and sometimes smiled at -- the cameras.
How are we feeling about this dress? We have our thoughts...
In the audience:
Nicki slipped back into her gold dress after opening the VMAs and sat with boyfriend Meek Mill.
Kylie and Tyga were in the audience holding hands and being coy with the cameras. These two...
Miguel's model girlfriend Nazanin looked hot in all black.
John and Chrissy got all cute on the carpet before John took home an award with Big Sean:
Pharrell and his wife have an affinity for red laces.
P showed up on the MTV red carpet in a matching jean jacket and pants, which he paired with a cap and Chanel boots. His wife fellow fashionista Helen Lasichanh, who wore denim overalls and shirt. She topped off her look with a black bowler hat and a pair of boots that matched her husband's.
E-40 and wife Tracey walked the carpet after celebrating a big night at the BMI Hip Hop Awards.
And afterwards, John and Chrissy got their modeling on.
Kanye West accepted tonight's MTV Video Vanguard award where he shockingly revealed his presidential aspirations. If you believed anything that came out of his mouth Sunday night. More inside...
Tonight, Kanye West was honored for being the musical genius that he is. We've always acknowledged that he's "great." But he finally got the acknowledgement from mainstream that he's been mad about not receiving.
But wait...there were no Thank Yous. He had more ish to pop off about.
While accepting the Video Vanguard Award from his former rival Taylor Swift who admitted her first CD was Kanye's College Dropout, he used 13-minutes to drop some knowledge (some may call it B.S.) and announce that he’s running for president.
'Ye said, “And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”
Check out the full transcript of his speech full of calling out the industry (again), ragging on Award shows (again), what he smoked before he got there and more.
Bro. Bro! Listen to the kids.
Jeremy, I gotta put it down for a second. It's beautiful. Jeremy Scott designed.
First of all, thank you, Taylor, for being so gracious in giving me this award this evening. Thank you. And I often think back to the first day I met you, also. You know, I think about when I'm in the grocery store with my daughter, and I have a really great conversation about fresh juice at the -- you know? And at the end, they say, "Oh, you're not that bad after all." And like, I think about it sometimes, like, it crosses my mind a little bit like when I go to the baseball game and, like, 60,000 people boo me. It crosses my mind a little bit. Just — [applause]
I think if I had to do it all again, what would I have done? Would I have worn a leather shirt? Would I have drank a half a bottle of Hennessy and gave the rest of it to the audience? Yeah, I know y'all drink that bottle too. If I had a daughter at that time, would I have went on stage and grabbed the mic from someone else's?
You know, this arena tomorrow, it's gonna be a completely different set-up. Some concert, something like that. This stage will be gone. After that night, the stage is gone, but the effect that it had on people remains. The — [applause] The problem was the contradiction. The contradiction is I do fight for artists, but in that fight, I somehow... what's disrespectful to artists, I — I didn't know how to say the right thing, the perfect thing. [sighs] I sat at the Grammys and saw Justin Timberlake and Cee-Lo lose. Gnarls Barkley and the FutureLove/Sexy Back album. And bro, Justin, I ain't trying to put you on blast, but I saw that man in tears, bro. You know. And I was thinking, "He deserved to win Album of the Year."
And this small box that we are as the entertainers of the evening. [Applause] How could you explain that? Sometimes, I feel like, you know, all this shit they run about beef and all that, sometimes I feel like I died for the artists' opinion, for artists to be able to have an opinion after they were successful. [Applause] I'm not no politician, bro. And look at that. You know how many times MTV ran that footage again? Because it got them more ratings? You know how many times they announced Taylor was gonna give me the award, because it got them more ratings? [Applause]
Listen to the kids, bro! [Applause]
I still don't understand awards shows. I don't understand how they get five people who worked their entire life, one, sold records, sold concert tickets, to come, stand on the carpet, and for the first time in their life be judged on a chopping block and have the opportunity to be considered a loser. I don't understand it, bro! I don't understand when the biggest album, or the biggest video — I'm conflicted, bro! I just wanted people to like me more. But fuck that, bro! [Applause]
2015! I will die for the art, for what I believe in. And the art ain't always gonna be polite. Y'all might be thinking right now, I wonder, did he smoke some before he came out here? The answer is, yes, I rolled up a little something. I knocked the edge off. [Applause]
I don't know what's gonna happen tonight. I don't know what's gonna happen tomorrow, bro. But all I can say to my artists, my fellow artists: just worry how you feel at the time, man. Just worry about how you feel, and don't never — you know what I'm saying? I'm confident. I believe in myself. We the Millennials, bro. This is a new — this is a new mentality. We not gonna control our kids with brands. We not gonna teach low self esteem and hate to our kids. We gonna teach our kids that they can be something! We gonna teach our kids that they can stand up for theyself. We gonna teach our kids to believe in themselves. If my grandfather was here right now, he would not let me back down! [Rolling applause]
I don't know what I'm gonna 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 could have guessed by this moment, I have decided, in 2020, to run for president. [Applause]
SIDEBAR - No one would have expected Donald Trump to make a serious run for president....and look at him now.
Justin's got jokes! And Kanye had a few too. After he got his award....he was done for the night.
Nicki Minaj went from talking about the pulpit to popping off on host Miley Cyrus in the middle of the rapper's acceptance speech. And that's not the only beef she had. See Nicki doing the most on Sunday's VMAs stage inside...
When Nicki Minaj won the Best Hip Hop Video Award for "Anaconda" at Sunday's VMAs, it was her own Anaconda holding her back from going to get her award.
Nicki tried to tip toe to the stage and lift her leg up to get up the stairs.....but between her super tight dress and her seemingly fresh-of-the-injection-table refilled booty, she wasn't able to carry it all up the stairs solo dolo.
Nicki stood at the bottom of the stairs laughing to herself that she couldn't get up the stairs, then asked for help. And danced while waiting.
Once the hilarious Rebel Wilson, who was presenting the Award, came to offer the help Meek Mill didn't, Nicki sashayed her way up the stairs with no problem. The twosome celebrated with a mini twerk session.
Then...Nicki came for host Miley Cyrus' wig.
She seemed to have a few four-letter "words" for Miley. Right after Nicki thanked her Pastor....she flipped the script and her voice and said, "Now for this b*tch that had a lot to say about me in the press the other day, Miley what's good?!"
Apparently Miley made some comments while doing MTV VMA promo. Regarding Nicki's comments about "Anaconda" not being celebrated because it doesn't promote slim bodies, Miley said,
"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," Cyrus said. "And it's not anger like, 'Guys, I'm frustrated about some things that are a bigger issue.' You made it about you. Not to sound like a bitch, but that's like, 'Eh, I didn't get my VMA.
"What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It's not very polite," Cyrus said. "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… 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."
Miley responded to Nicki saying that media often manipulates interviews celebs give in this business. Hmph. Watch it unfold below.
