Kanye West, 2015
MTV surprised us all in 2015 when Taylor Swift presented her on-again, off-again, on-sgsin nemesis Kanye West with his Vanguard Award. It was a full-circle moment from their "infamous encounter" at the show in 2009. Kanye went on to give a long and passionate acceptance speech in which he announced his plans to run for president in 2020 and railed against award shows and the entertainment industry.
