Kanye West made a long speech while receiving this year’s Michael Jackson Vanguard Award in which he might have just scored himself a chance to host next year’s awards.

Kanye had a lot of things to say during his speech at the MTV Video Music Awards 2015. He was announced by Taylor Swift to receive the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award. He was kissed and supported by wife Kim Kardashian.

As Kanye made his way onstage, the first issue he addressed was that of Taylor Swift herself. He had interrupted Taylor back in 2007 while she received her award. He said that he definitely would have acted better if he had had a daughter back then.

He said that he didn’t understand what award shows were really all about. With that started his 12 minute speech. The network had given him 2 minutes but the back stage and upstairs coordinators were told to stand down.

In his speech, Kanye admitted to having smoked something to take off the edge. With a lot of ‘bruhs’ added, Kanye said a lot of things. Ending with announcing that he would be running for president in the year 2020.

Now that might be contrary to his past actions. He and wife Kim attended a fundraiser lunch for Hilary Clinton. They also snagged a selfie with the candidate saying that hearing her say great things had been a privilege.

Kanye’s enthusiasm did not go unnoticed by MTV. With the change of heads, the new administration might be looking for an impactful event next year. They are considering the most impactful person this year to host the awards in 2016.

The man himself Kanye West. It is not a completely bizarre consideration. Kanye has improved a lot from his old self. He’s not the same man who had disrupted Swift during her speech in 2007.

Or the man who had stepped up on Michael Jackson’s funeral to ask Jeremiah Jackson if he could be the King of Pop. He’s now the Kanye who wants to run for the President in 2020, reported CNN. Note of worry is, that would that make Kim Kardashian the First Lady?

For now, hosting the VMAs next year would seem like a much more viable option. It would be a better decision to let Miley Cyrus host the VMAs anyway.
