Kanye West will be graced with the Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s MTV VMA’s. That’s right, the same Yeezy at the same function where in 2009 he rudely and infamously interrupted Taylor Swift‘s acceptance speech for best video.

But who remembers that… right?

Yeezy will be honored for his “ground-breaking videos, legendary performances and continued impact on music, art, fashion and culture.”

It’s the highest honor at the VMA’s and is known as the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The likes of Madonna, Beyonce, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and The Rolling Stones have been previous recipients.

Funny story – Taylor Swift leads all nominations and will without a doubt take home a ton of awards… wonder what we can expect from Kanye?

There will be performances from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, A$AP Rocky, Pharrell, Demi Lavato and Twenty One Pilots and the event will be hosted by Miley Cyrus.

VMA’s air this Sunday, August 30th.
