Cue Fireworks: Katy Perry Just Announced She’s Hosting the 2017 VMAs
We’re in orbit after reading Katy Perry's latest tweet announcing she'll be hosting this year's VMAs. And we can’t think of a better candidate than the "Teenage Dream" queen. On top of her nomination for MTV's coveted Moonman in not one, not two, but five categories (including Best Pop and Best Collaboration), she's also the first person to surpass 100 million Twitter followers this year, and the first artist to win three RIAA Diamond-certified song awards (meaning the singles have sold more than 10 million copies).
“I’ve been training with MTV in zero gravity, eating astronaut ice cream, and I’m on a group text with Buzz Aldrin and Neil deGrasse Tyson,” said Katy Perry in a press release from MTV Thursday. “Come August 27th, I’ll be ready to be your MOONWOMAN! Brace for impact, kids.”
The VMAs will take place August 27 on MTV. 'Til then, we'll have "Swish Swish" on repeat (like always).
