We used to think Kanye West had the best award show acceptance speeches of all time, and until very recently, Yeezy did reign supreme.
Remember that time Kanye won “Best Rap Album” at the Grammys in 1994 and delivered the most epic speech?
Or what about the time he brought a hilarious huge “thank you” list on stage at the Grammys in 2006?
But it wasn’t until last night at the MTV VMAs, that the world realized Nicki Minaj is the artist to watch when accepting an award. After asking that “bitch” Miley Cyrus “what’s good,” Nicki Minaj officially dethroned Kanye. At least until the next award show.
Now, don’t get us wrong, Kanye’s Vanguard Video acceptance speech was pretty epic in its own right, but it was epic for all the wrong reasons. The biggest reason being that no one knew what the f*ck Kanye was talking about, except that he wanted us to “listen to the kids, bro” and that he was running for president in 2020.
Pretty interesting statements, but still not as bold as Nicki’s “bitch, please” moment.
Check out Nicki Minaj’s top 5 award show speeches.
