This upcoming weekend currently holds the potential to make history.
This year at the MTV VMAs, all eyes are going to be on Kanye West.
According to TMZ, the notoriously outspoken and unpredictable rapper has been given the ultimate gift: free reign.
What that means is the Kanye West that we all know and love has allegedly been given the opportunity to do whatever he wants while on stage at the annual awards show. For four whole minutes.
As reported by TMZ, West doesn’t even have to tell show producers what he’s planning in advance, further showing that the show's producers are taking an interesting risk in trusting 'Ye to steal the spotlight and possibly create history at the same time.
For his unscripted and unfiltered participating in this year’s awards, he could go on one of his reputed rants, rap, sing, dance, show us more trailers to his video game, make amends with Taylor Swift, show off some new Yeezy designs or even hold a four-minute-long moment of silence. The world is yours, ‘Ye.
According to the report, producers of the awards show are expecting something big but remain clueless as to which version of Kanye West viewers will be treated to this weekend, which must be equal parts terrifying and exhilarating for all parties involved.
Last year at the VMAs, West won the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and famously gave his 11-minute long sermon that has since been tweeted, memed and forever preserved as one of the more interesting moments of West’s career to date. Knowing West, he’s going to top himself this weekend once again.
The MTV VMAs is slated to air this Sunday, August 28, at 9 p.m. EST and will be broadcasted live from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
