MILEY'S BIG FINISH
8/30/15

Miley took to the stage for a wildly colorful, EDM-infused jam to wrap up the MTV VMAs tonight, joined by drag queens and Flaming Lips, and concluded by announcing that her new album, Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz, was available for free online (check it out here). We recommend smoking copious amounts of weed before listening.

KANYE FOR PRESIDENT
8/30/15

Kanye West gave one of the longest, most fascinating and most confounding speeches ever made on the VMAs (and maybe on any awards show) after being handed the Video Vanguard Award by Taylor Swift. During his 25-minute ramble, West apologized for having been "disrespectful" to Swift, while also declaring he would "die" for artists, denouncing awards shows for putting artists on a "chopping block" of judgment, admitted he was stoned, and announced he'd be running for President in 2020. Then he dropped the mic. We imagine you'll be hearing a great deal about this moment. Let the interpretations begin.
