There's a good chance Kanye West might be chosen to host the 2016 MTV VMAs. Find out what MTV execs are saying about 'Ye inside...
Sunday evening, Kanye West treated fans and MTV VMA viewers to a nearly 13-minute long stream of consciousness rant during his Video Vanguard Award acceptance, and (mostly) everyone loved it! And when we say everyone, that includes MTV executives. In fact, MTV is considering Kanye as host in 2016 (if he's not too busy plotting his 2020 presidential bid).
VMA sources reportedly told TMZ that execs were so impressed by 'Ye's speech that they completely overlooked all the jabs he threw at them. Hey, ratings are king. Ratings by any means necessary.
Thanks to the good response, and despite the ratings being down, Kanye hosting next year is "on the table."
Here's an interesting backstage tidbit.....Kanye was only allotted 2-minutes for his speech, but producers let him continue on and on and on...and on. The control room could have easily cut him off.......but they showed him respect. Or just wanted to capitalize off the foolery of what was happening.
We're even hearing that one MTV exec followed Kanye to his dressing room to gush about the speech. We're sure 'Ye loved all the attention, despite his "unimpressed" act.
