Kanye 'West Wing': I'm Running For President

Video Preview

Kanye West has said he would run for president in 2020 as he collected MTV's highest honour at the Video Music Awards - reported the SkyNews.

But the rapper made the announcement in a rambling speech at the ceremony in Los Angeles - and after he admitted smoking something to calm his nerves.

Watched by his pregnant wife Kim Kardashian, he said: "I still don't understand awards shows, I don't understand how they get five people who work their entire life, sold records, sold concert tickets, to stand on a red carpet, to come and for the first time in their life stand on the chopping block and be considered a loser.

"I don't understand it, I'm conflicted bro. I just want people to like me more but f*** that bro.

"I will die for the art, for what I believe in and the art ain't always going to be polite. I bet they are thinking right now if I smoked something before this and the answer is yes, I rolled up a little something to take the edge off."

After holding his head in his hands for an extended period of time, he added: "It's about ideas, people who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could have guessed, I have decided in 2020 to run for president."

During the ceremony, host Miley Cyrus was verbally attacked by rapper Nicki Minaj.

After scooping the prize for best hip-hop video for her hit Anaconda, Minaj blasted Cyrus over an interview she gave to the New York Times last week.

The 22-year-old singer had suggested in the interview that Minaj had reacted badly over the fact Anaconda had not been nominated for video of the year.
