It’s official: Miley Cyrus is set to host the MTV Video Music Awards next month!
She revealed the news yesterday with a playful Instagram post where she holds a sign (while wearing an alien suit) that says “MTV WON’T LET ME PERFORM….SO I’M HOSTING THIS YEARS VMAs.”
As one side of her sign alludes to, the supposed “performance prohibition” refers to her infamous 2013 performance with Robin Thicke where Cyrus lustily danced with the “Blurred Lines” singer in a moment that pretty much broke Twitter.
Cyrus’ 2014 VMAs were more touching and emotional. Upon winning Video of the Year for “Wrecking Ball,” she sent up a teenager named Jesse who seized the platform to raise awareness of homeless teens in Los Angeles.
Can’t wait to see what she has in store for us this year!
The 2015 VMAs will air live Aug. 30 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
