Get ready for a whole lotta Kanye during the 2016 MTV VMA’s. According to reports, MTV has given Yeezy a full 4 minutes on stage to do whatever he wants … and they have NO clue what he’ll end up doing.
A source close to production told TMZ:
MTV honchos are giving ‘Ye 4 minutes to do with as he pleases. He can rap, sing, dance or even just stay silent … and we’re told show producers are totally clueless which door he’ll pick.
If you recall, West won last year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the show and took the stage for an 11 minute sermon that included talk of him running for resident in 2020. There are also rumors he and Taylor Swift will do something during Sunday’s show, but sources close to Swift say she has no plans to attend.
But besides Kanye, Sunday’s show, going down for the first time at Madison Square Garden, is slated to be another epic one. Nicki Minaj will hit the stage to perform “Side to Side” with Ariana Grande. Ty Dolla $ign is set to perform with Nick Jonas. Rihanna will rock the stage and will also receive this years Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. And then of course, there’s Brittany. Spears will return to perform for the first time in ten years. Amazing, right?
