What do you get when hoards of status-seeking, grandiose, loud-mouthed, brash, flamboyant narcissists gather in one room to pay homage to themselves?
MTV’s annual Video Music Awards!
Remember back in 2010 when Lady Gaga’s ensemble, right down to the platform demi-boots and purse, was made entirely of raw meat?
If you can believe it, that whacky dress is on display at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. Don’t worry though, it’s not crawling with maggots. According to the Director of Collections, the dress was transported in a climate-controlled truck to keep it from decomposing and then taxidermied, that is, preserved like beef jerky. If only Gaga knew you could make dresses out of SaranWrap, she could’ve maybe wrapped herself up and extended the shelf life. Maybe worn it a few more times before donating it.
Anyway, this year Miley-twerk-and-stick-her-tongue-out-Cyrus hosted the awards show and if her hideous wardrobe selections, antics and abundant cursing weren’t enough to make you puke in your own mouth, this ought to do the trick: Kanye West received the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award.
In case you don’t know, The Michael Jackson Vanguard Award is basically a lifetime achievement award. So basically a lifetime achievement award went to a guy with basically no discernible talent. Or achievements. Seriously. The guy named his kid North, as in, North West. Who does that?
Anyway, after rambling incoherently for ten minutes and almost, but not quite apologizing to Taylor Swift (for that thing he did six years ago when she edged Beyonce out of the award for Best Female Video), Kanye concluded his acceptance speech with this ad hoc announcement: “And yes, as you probably could’ve guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.” Then he dropped the mic on the ground and walked off stage. It was quite dramatic.
Think he was high?
Think it’s a joke?
Is America #ReadyForKanye or do you think he should he keep his day job? You make the call.
There you have it, folks. Lifetime achievement in music.
