This will be the first time since its 1984 inception that the VMAs are held at MSG. The first ceremony was broadcast from New York’s Radio City Music Hall. The 2015 ceremony was held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and hosted by Miley Cyrus.
In a rather pot-stirring move, the image accompanying the announcement on Twitter is of the infamous Kanye West and Taylor Swift moment on 2009, when West interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech for best female video. The feud was rehashed this past February when West debuted his album “The Life of Pablo” during New York Fashion Week, which includes a song that brought up the drama with Swift once again.
Is this MTV’s way of saying this is the kind of spectacle we can expect from a New York-based VMAs? Guess we’ll be tuning in August 28 to find out.
