The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards as Told by the Internet

Did you miss the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards? Don’t worry—the internet has your back.

Taylor Swift was the first to arrive at the red carpet with her entire “Bad Blood” squad in tow, which only made us resentful of our own friends’ inability to gather for one brunch.

Just. ONE. Brunch.

The group won Video of the Year, which came as less of a surprise than Justin Bieber’s cleaning supply-inspired haircut.

Swift premiered the music video for “Wildest Dreams” that rekindled fond memories of frenemy feuds passed.

Demi Lovato performed new tracks including “Cool For the Summer” outside of the Microsoft Theater with help from Iggy Azalea.

Then, Kanye West was moved by the spirit of Abel Tesfaye.  

Chrissy Teigen was inducted into the Kim Kardashian Hall of Selfie Fame.

And no one told Lovato that she could come back inside.

Justin Bieber ascended into the air like a Sims character on their birthday at the end of his first VMAs performance in 5 years only to be summoned back to earth by a Cyrus pick-up line, to which he proceeded to weep, and weep, and weep as one would when they discover that childhood has escaped faster than a Ferrari in Miami.

West and Swift mended the “Imma Let You Finish” wound when she presented West with the Video Vanguard Award. Yeezy then bestowed upon us a magnum opus rambling that only one person on his intellectual level could actually comprehend.

West concluded his speech by announcing that he will be running for president in 2020, only moments after he revealed on national television that he smoked a blunt before emerging on-stage.
