Drake was performing his track “Madonna” at Coachella 2015 when Madonna herself joined him on stage. She then planted a kiss on him, and he did not seem to like it. He desperately flailed his arms and wiped his mouth after. Drake claims it was because of the lipstick she was wearing.
3. Nicki Minaj calling out Miley Cyrus
This year’s MTV Video Music Awards started out with controversy as Nicki Minaj expressed her discontent with her video not being nominated for the top award and then engaged in a little Twitter spat with Taylor Swift.

No way was Minaj letting that slide. Right after she collected an award, she called the starlet out and created one of the best memes of the year.
4. Everything Donald Trump has said
Donald Trump announced that he was running for president of the United States and proceeded to run one of the strangest campaigns in history, in which he has managed to offend Mexicans, women, war heroes, disabled people, and Muslims.

5. Kanye for president?
Speaking of bizarre presidential candidates – at the MTV VMAs, rapper Kanye West made an extremely long and weird speech where he announced that he will run for president in 2020.

6. Drake’s dancing in the “Hotline Bling” music video
Drake unveiled his music video for “Hotline Bling” and the internet could not handle it. His so-called “dad dancing” inspired a hilarious meme: users would set his dance moves to another song and he would always be on beat. Drake has been a good sport about it and even shared one of them.

9. Iggy Azalea’s rapping
A vine video of a live performance by rapper Iggy Azalea went viral for all the wrong reasons. No one was able to understand whatAzalea was saying; it sounded like complete nonsense.

Social media users were not impressed and created a meme mocking her attempt.
10. The Fashion Police vs. Zendaya’s dreadlocks

11. Adele’s comeback
This year marked the return of Adele, who had not released any music since 2012. She made her come back with very little promotion, and clearly did not need it.
