MTV might not play videos anymore, but the network still hands out Moonmen.
The 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards takes place on September 6 at Los Angeles’ Staple Center arena. Best New Artist nominee Frank Ocean will be joined by R&B superstar Rihanna, X-Factor boy band One Direction, Green Day, Pink, Alicia Keys and Taylor Swift (still most famous for being interrupted by Kanye West at the 2009 VMAs).
2 Chainz is slated to be a presenter, along with pop stars Ke$ha and Miley Cyrus and teen friendly rappers Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller. In a not-quite timely nod to the Summer Olympics, the US women’s gymnastic team (“the Fierce Five”) will also appear.
It doesn’t match the absurdity of Kanye’s most infamous VMA moment, but he does appear with new girlfriend Kim Kardashian and host Kevin Hart in this new ad.
