This past weekend, Kanye West announced that he's running for president. This isn't the first time he's mentioned this, but West now says that he's attempting to win the office this year.

Tonight, on Independence Day, he tweeted that he's running…

The awards show is changing. When you can't put dozens of celebrities in the same room for a live telecast, things don't work the same anymore.
