This is not a drill.
OHMAHGAHD peeps! How did we (MTV) actually make this happen?! This is no joke, no drill, or anything similar, then simply the truth y’all – Miley Cyrus will be hosting the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, set to be live on August 30.
In typical Miley fashion, she announced the news in a totally brilliant and bonkers way: by dressing up as an alien and wearing a sandwich board that reads ‘MTV WON’T LET ME PERFORM’ on one side and ‘SO I’M HOSTING THIS YEAR’S VMA’S’ on the other.
As this is totally some kind of historical news already, we just need to go way back in time with you guys. So lets reminisce a bit:
Miley was just 15 when she attended her first VMAs in 2008, where she was up for Best New Artist against Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, and she’s had quite the VMAs history since. Last year, she made headlines when she graciously offered up her acceptance speech time to her homeless date, Jesse Helt, who explained the plight of homeless youth in L.A. That moment sparked the creation of Miley’s Happy Hippie organization, which gives support services to those in need.
And, of course, we all remember, Miley’s little 2013 VMAs twerk session with Robin Thicke and that giant foam finger. Never forget. Never. Ever.
We can only imagine the amazing antics she’ll pull this year.
The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from L.A.’s Microsoft Theater on Sunday, August 30. Nominations will be announced by Tuesday, July 21 and the voting will begin shortly after, the same day at vma.mtv.com.
Get ready. Get set. VOTE!
