As expected, the 2015 MTV VMAs were filled with plenty of good and bad moments sure to be talked about all week. One of those moments came from Kanye West, who was honored with this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Presented to him by Taylor Swift, Kanye’s moment on stage turned into a 12-minute speech, where he reflected on the now infamous incident with Swift at the 2009 VMAs, award shows and their selection process, fatherhood, the importance of millennials and more.

Closing the speech, Kanye shocked many when he announced he will be running for U.S. President in 2020. “And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president,” said Kanye before dropping the mic and walking off stage to hug wife Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift.

Watch the full speech and read Kanye’s transcript below.
