MTV VMAs 2015: What in the world happened?

Leave it to the MTV Video Music Awards to give folks plenty to talk about the next day.

There were triumph and tears, politics and bare boobs. Seriously. We are not even joking.

Here's what you may have missed if you didn't catch this year's VMAs:

Kanye, bro ...

It all started so hopefully.

Taylor Swift gave a nod to the now-infamous VMAs incident from 2009, when Kanye West rushed the stage after Swift beat out Beyonce, proclaiming that "Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time." On Sunday night, Swift was there to present West with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

    Typical Taylor, in that Swift had nice things to say, including that West's "College Dropout" album was the first she purchased on iTunes when she was 12. And she called the rapper her friend.

    Then West took to the stage and thanked Swift, and things quickly went left.

    Oh, hey, Miley Cyrus' boob

     

    By now, we all know that Miley Cyrus is going to do what she wants to do.

    Her twerking skills at the VMAs in 2013 and all the attention she's garnered since led to her being selected to host this year's show, and it was so many things.

    There were skits about how she acts out on Instagram thanks to her "Instagram Think Tank" and one about her with her grandma, rapper Snoop Dogg and some marijuana brownies.

    Cyrus made liberal use of the tape delay, as she cursed all she wanted, and her fashion throughout the evening defied description.

    And speaking of dropping, she also pulled a Beyonce and announced (after closing out the show with a performance) that her new album, "Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz," was now streaming online for free. In case anyone cared.

    Justin Bieber was all in his feelings

    If you are looking for some snark about Bieber's new hairstyle, you can move along. Nothing to see here, folks.

    But while Minaj and Swift are all good, it didn't seem like the same could be said about Minaj and Cyrus.

    While accepting the best hip-hop video award for her song "Anaconda," Minaj thanked her pastor and proceeded to take a jab at Cyrus over a New York Times story in which Cyrus appeared to side with Swift in her past beef with the rapper.

    "And now, back to this b***h that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press," Minaj said, gesturing at Cyrus. "Miley, what's good?"

    Cyrus seemed to take it in stride, responding, "Hey, we're all in this industry, we all do interviews, and we all know how they manipulate s**t. Nicki, congratulations."
