Miley Cyrus to Host 2015 MTV VMAs


Miley Cyrus is set to host this year's MTV Video Music Awards, it was announced Monday.

The pop star revealed the news on social media, posting a photo of herself in a campy alien costume and wearing a sandwich sign saying, "MTV won't let me perform" and "So I'm hosting this year's VMAs."

Cyrus' rep and MTV both confirmed the news.

Expect at least one joke about Cyrus' 2013 Video Music Awards performance that caused controversy for her risque dancing with Robin Thicke and brought about a national obsession with twerking.
