MTV sure had a lot of shenanigans up their sleeves as the world watched Nicki Minaj call out Miley Cyrus for her comments about the rapper in the press. So when we found out that the show’s executive producer Van Toffler said Kanye West was supposed to perform a medley that never happened, we wondered what happened?
Toffler explained that moments before Kanye accepted his award and announced a potential bid for president in 2020, they were informed that he might only speak.
“We found out that he might not do music and just speak — but we had to be prepared for both, so we had a track cued up. We were in the truck and we heard this 10 minutes before he was to accept the award.”
Toffler also had this to say about the Nicki and Miley incident.
“We had no idea what either of them was going to say, and we didn’t anticipate that. Clearly, from Miley’s reaction, it was genuine.”
Looks like it may have been a case of Kanye just being Kanye.
