Nicki called out Miley for stuff she said in an interview earlier this week, saying “now back to this bitch who had a lot to say about me in the press last week. Miley what’s good?” and the gauntlet was thrown.
Miley tried to quash it, but it’s hard to say whether it worked out or not. Minaj immediately tweeted out “Lmfaaoooooooo” with 3 heart eye emojis so WHO KNOWS.
Big Sean and Nick Jonas presented together, because obviously.
The winner of Best Female Video was Taylor Swift for Blank Space (and Kanye actually let her finish this time).
Taylor Swift presented Kanye West with the Vanguard Award (PS. if you weren’t feeling old enough, it’s been SIX YEARS since “Ima Let You Finish”. SIX YEARS).
He basically spent his whole speech apologizing to Taylor for that incident SIX YEARS AGO, and it was actually very, very sweet. He just wanted people to like him more. He voiced it for all of us when he said “I don’t understand award shows, man”. Same, Yeezy, same.
Oh, and he announced he’ll be running for President in 2020. Obviously.
And the final performance of the evening was the girl herself. It was full of references to weed and drag queen dancers. I dug it.
She also announced that her new album is online for FREE right now (mileycyrusandherdeadpetz.com, for when the internet stops breaking the page with views).
The main takeaway from tonight’s VMAs: Everyone has beef that can be solved. And everyone is high.
Swift's latest video is old-Hollywood romance style and really makes up for the failure that was 'Bad Blood'. You don't need all those stars/lead up/over indulgence to make perfection, Tay Tay!
All the proceeds from the video will also be going to the wild animal conversation efforts through the African Parks Foundation of America. So watch it, losers!
As reported on Variety, Nielsen estimates that the 90-minute debut became the Number 1-rated cable series launch on record with 10.1 million viewers. That's 6.3 million adults 18-49, passing the previous demo record of AMC's other show Better Call Saul. AMC now has three of the top five cable launches of all time (with Walking Dead ranking fifth).
In both total viewers and those 18-49, Sunday's premiere out-rated all 22 episodes from the first two seasons of The Walking Dead.
Fear will air six episodes in its first season (leading into the season six premiere of The Walking Dead on October 11). It was given a straight-to-series, two season order by AMC earlier this year. Season two is slated for 2016.
