Kanye West surprised everybody at the 2015 VMAs when he announced he’s running for president in 2020. Everybody, except one: HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop that Kim Kardashian knew what Kanye was going to say!
Nobody could predict what Kanye West, 38, was going to say at the 2015 VMAs. The stunned crowd certainly wasn’t expecting that speech! While the audience was shocked by his presidential announcement, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that his wife, Kim Kardashian, 34, wasn’t surprised by what came out of Yeezy’s mouth.
The crowd at the Microsoft Theater shared Taylor Swift’s shocked expression at Kanye’s rant after he accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award on Aug. 30. After Yeezy blasted MTV, awards shows and “control[ing] our kids with brands,” Yeezy announced that he would run for president in 2020. Shocking! While everyone wondered if they really heard Kanye say that, Kim knew exactly what was coming.
“No, she wasn’t surprised at all with his speech,” a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. “He discussed what he was going to hit on with Kim.” Wow. At least one person knew what Kanye was going to do. “Everyone in that family knows Kanye’s political aspirations,” the insider said, adding that “Kim couldn’t have been prouder.”
Fans weren’t the only ones who wanted to see Yeezy rock the VMAs. MTV had hoped that he’d perform along with accepting the award. But, when the network and Kanye couldn’t come to an agreement on some key details, Yeezy figured he’d screw MTV over by not singing a single note. Still, Kanye proved that he didn’t need to rap to get people talking. For those of you wanting to hear some of Kanye’s music, buy a copy of Yeezus here.
It seems that Kim and the rest of the Kardashians-Jenners were only there to hear Kanye declare his candidacy. After his speech, Kanye, Kim and Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Tyga and Kylie Jenner all got up from their seats and headed towards the exit.
Fans weren’t going to wait for 2020 to jump on the Yeezy4Prez trend. The moment that Kanye ended his speech, the Internet flooded with Kanye For President memes. From Yeezy replacing George Washington on Mount Rushmore, to him cutting off President Barack Obama, the hilarious images show that Yeezy’s got the Internet’s vote.
Are you surprised that Kim knew what Kanye was going to say, HollywoodLifers? Do you think he’d make a good president?
