Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Skip the VMAs: Where Were They?

Kim Kardashian Kanye WestThursday night’s MTV Video Music Awards presentation was filled with high energy performances, heartfelt acceptance speeches, and hilarious one-liners — but one thing was palpably missing: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

After filming a promo spot for the show with VMA host Kevin Hart, fans were lead to believe that Kardashian and West would be in attendance. Sadly, however, that was not the case. Kardashian, who had to be in New York to launch her new fragrance at Lord and Taylor during Fashion’s Night Out, told Celebuzz that she never intended to attend the show. In her interview with Celebuzz (video below) she was also quick to squash all rumors that West chose not to attend the show since he couldn’t have his best girl on his arm. “No, no, he’s working,” Kardashian said. “He’s recording an album. I’m sure he’d love to be there, but he’s out of town.”

Thursday was a busy night for Kardashian. Following her launch, she jumped on a private jet to North Carolina to attend a Democratic National Convention after-party, Celebuzz reports. “This is how we do…. Private plane & Wendy’s! DNC party here we come,” Kardashian tweeted.

It may be for the best that West stayed away from the VMAs this year. That way, Taylor Swift didn’t have to worry about any unwanted interruptions.

But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
