    MTV Bumps Up VMAs for Obama

    SAUL LOEB / AFP

    President Obama won’t have to worry about Kanye interrupting his speech on Thursday night. MTV announced Monday that it will move up the start of its annual Video Music Awards one hour so that it won’t conflict with President Obama’s speech Thursday at the Democratic National Convention. The MTV awards show, which this year will feature performances from Taylor Swift, Rihanna, and Green Day, was scheduled to air from 9 to 11 p.m., while Obama is scheduled to speak at 10 p.m. Now, the VMAs will begin at 8 p.m., with an expected 10 p.m. end time—just in time for Obama’s remarks.
