Katy Perry To Host The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards
Katy Perry is VMAs bound!
For, the singer has just been announced as host of the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards.
Full story below…
Perry made the announcement literally seconds ago on Twitter, branding herself as a MoonWoman:

On her enlistment, the starlet said:
“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. Come August 27th, I’ll be ready to be your MOONWOMAN! Brace for impact, kids.”
Bruce Gillmer, Head of Music and Music Talent, Viacom added:
“We’re thrilled to have global phenomenon Katy Perry as the host and a performer at the 2017 VMAs,” “She is at the forefront of music culture and the perfect person to anchor this year’s show, which promises to be one of the most diverse and music-filled in VMA history.”
Perry is nominated for five awards – a feat which sees her tied for 2nd most honors of the night alongside The Weeknd. Kendrick Lamar leads with eight.
The 2017 VMAs take place live on August 27th at The Forum in Los Angeles.
This is a significant lifeline for the 32-year-old given the lackluster sales of current album ‘Witness.’ Especially as any such hosting gig will bring with it a performance slot too.
