miley cyrus to host the mtv vmas
After 2013’s twerking controversy, MTV have put Miley on presenting duties.
That's quite a leap: from grinding on Marvin Gaye-plagiariser Robin Thicke to hosting the entire awards show. It seems MTV have beenrethinking Miley Cyrus too.
Cyrus took to Instagram and Twitter at midnight UK time to announce the news, posting -- in true Miley style -- a picture of herself in a green alien zentai suit with a sign saying "MTV won't let me perform" next to a second image with her face revealed, tongue out and a sign saying "So I'm hosting this year's VMAs"; the caption reads "Fuck yeah VMAs!!!!! #VMAs on @MTV Aug 30 at 9pm"
We can't wait to see what she wears -- or doesn't -- but more importantly, the message she might choose to send to the audience of industry players and millions of viewers at home. Last year, Miley asked a young homeless man, Jesse Helt, to collect her Video of the Year award, and to speak about the issue of homelessness instead of giving an acceptance speech.
