2013 MTV Video Music Awards

Contrary to popular belief, there’s usually a method to Kanye West‘s madness. Following his performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, many questioned why a photo of a tree was the background image as the sounds of “Blood On the Leaves” echoed into the crowd.

At the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, one of the earlier surprises of the night occurred when Macklemore & Ryan Lewis captured a “moonman” for Best Hip-Hop Video – and beating out some big names in the process.

As MTV gears up for the 2013 Video Music Awards this weekend, street posters in Brooklyn featuring lyrics of scheduled act Kanye West, with images of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman have appeared.

Kanye West will make his return to the MTV Video Music Awards August 25 to a perform Yeezus standout, “Black Skinhead,” at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Power 105.1’s Charlamagne Tha God has been cracking listeners up as part of the The Breakfast Club radio morning show and as a regular on MTV2‘s Guy Code series. The radio personality’s latest venture will be hosting a late-night talk show launching next month titled, Charlamagne And Friends.
