The rapper is known for his lengthy speeches - but he had not one, but TWO bombshells tonight

Firstly - he could be the future President.

Second - he was apparently high as he took to the stage. Seriously.

The rapper gave a long, rambling apology for his stage intrusions in the past as he accepted the prestigious Video Vanguard Award, before gushing about his "art", and finally admitting he's running for President in 2020.

We just don't know how to deal with this information.

It all began as the star slammed awards shows, ironically, while accepting an award - at an awards show.

“I still don’t understand award shows,” he said on stage. “I don’t understand how they get five people who work their entire life to come, stand on a carpet, and for the first time in their life, stand up on a chopping block and be considered a loser. I don’t understand it, bro! I’ve been conflicted, bro! I just wanted people to like me more!”

But it was followed with a much bigger bombshell, as Kanye openly admitted he had smoked a roll-up before he got up there - making the entire crowd burst into laughter.

“I will die for the art, for what I believe in,” he added. “And the art ain’t always going to be polite! Ya’ll might be thinking, I wonder, ‘Did he smoke something before he came out?’ The answer is yes, I rolled up something. I knocked the edge off.”

Just to cement it in our minds exactly what he was hinting at, host Miley Cyrus then stepped back up and joked: "We all know what Kanye West can do when he smokes weed".

He ended by announcing: "I have decided to run for President". Really.

The rapper had only good things to say as he was presented with his award by former rival Taylor Swift - who couldn't gush enough about her "friend".

Thanking her for the kind words, and after briefly kissing stunning wife Kim Kardashian, they swapped places and Taylor watched on from the crowd as Kanye spoke his mind.
