MTV to honor Kanye West with its highest honor
MTV announced that Kanye West will be receiving their 2015 "Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award." West will be presented with the award on Sunday night. There will of course be a tribute to "The Louis Vuitton Don" that will feature the countless amount of classic and timeless videos that he has put out throughout his career.
This award is the VMA's highest honor, and in the past has been presented to the likes of Beyoncé, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, and more. It's unclear if Kanye will perform during the show,
Kanye is also nominated for one other award for his appearance on Big Sean's "One Man Can Change the World" with John Legend.
Many years ago Kanye recieved international condemnation for interrupting Taylor Swift while the pop star was accepting her 2009 award. MTV had then reportedly banned Mr. West for a time from any of their awards.
