Miley Cyrus to host MTV Video Music Awards

The 25-year-old revealed on her social media accounts on Monday that she’s helming the August 30 ceremony.
Cyrus announced the gig by posting a photo of herself in an alien costume with sandwich boards that read “MTV won’t let me perform” and “so I’m hosting this year’s VMAs”.
A scantily-clad Cyrus shocked audiences with a rump-shaking performance alongside Robin Thicke at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Cyrus won the Video of the Year trophy at last year’s show, and invited a young, homeless man named Jesse Helt on stage to accept the trophy on her behalf.
The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards will air live on MTV from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, USA.
