Last night at the VMAs, Kanye announced he's going to run for president in 2020. Just another reason why it's important for young people to watch TV.

When West was presented the Video Vanguard award, he made an honest 12-minute speech about art, his reputation, millennials, and the future. And most shockingly of all, he criticized all brands. This was a rare moment in the show that didn't feel planned by our VMA overlords to stir up excitement (unlike Taylor lying that College Dropout was the first album she bought on iTunes).

Here's the full text of the speech (via Rolling Stone):
