Between all of the Tweeting, performing, writing, and Instagram'ing, there was simply too much content to process at last night’s Video Music Awards. How one could sanely keep up is a marvel in an of itself. Even after the confetti fell and the replay began, we were still trying to process what we just saw. Miley dropped an album, Justin Bieber cried after a stellar performance, and Kanye West announced his presidency? What even? Now we must make do with what went down. Thankfully, we’ve got a little, ol’ thing called Instagram to help us piece together the events from one of the most outrageous VMAs MTV has seen in years. It might not have topped some of years' past, but it certainly lives up there. See for yourself, ahead.
