Kanye West is crazy as hell and we love it.
Just when we were about to turn the channel, Taylor Swift presented Kanye West with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, which he used as a moment to rebel against every status quo and announce he’s running for president. Yes. President of the United States. Drops mic.
While Ye’s speech was incredibly long, he made valid points. Stay tuned for video of the incredible speech.

The man of the hour, Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award winner Kanye West hit the red carpet with his glowing pregnant wife in tow. Kimmy K. dressed her baby bump in lace-up ruched gown to match Kanye’s relaxed sweats.

Ciara turned heads in a peek-a-boo fringe number and embellished stilettos. Love her outfit but we have to admit we’re missing Russell Wilson’s coordinating look.

4. Amber Rose and Blac Chyna
Amber Rose and Blac Chyna are making sure they have the last laugh. They promoted Amber’s upcoming Slut Walk in outfits with degrading phrases strewn across the front. That’s one way to clap back at critics.

5. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen bet on black: her in a Marchesa daring lace high-slit gown and him in leather pants and a sharp blazer. And the award for best-looking couple of the night goes to…

Empire’s Serayah showed off her toned figure in a Herve Leger cut-out white dress and strappy booties. Hakeem is a lucky man!

11. Rita Ora
Rita Ora went dramatic in a plunging ball gown that left little to the imagination. We’ve never seen a slit in a feather skirt but hey, there’s a first time for everything!

12. Pharrell and Helen Lasichanh
No shade to Britney and Justin but THIS is how you do matching denim. Pharrell rocked a denim jacket and jeans while wife Helen Lasichanh wore overalls, a chambray shirt and a hat that we’d like to believe is a tribute to her beau.

14. Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa gave us boho vibes in a pink gown floral embroidery. Beach waves, layered necklaces and hair accessories finished her ’70s-inspired look.

21. FKA Twigs
FKA Twigs skewed sultry in a see-through lace gown with a web design in the bodice. We aren’t loving the lingerie vibes but her curly bob and red lip slay!
