Selena Gomez to Host the 2011 MTV VMA Pre-Show
Selena Gomez will be all over the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards later this month. Not only will the ‘Love You Like a Love Song’ singer be presenting during the event, but she has also been confirmed as the host of the pre-VMA show.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the 18-year-old will be reporting live from the black carpet live on Sunday, Aug. 28, beginning at 8PM. “I am very excited to be a part of the 2011 VMA’s,” Gomez said “After all of my years watching the VMA’s, the pre-show has always been one of my favorite parts. It is a true honor to be hosting from the black carpet this year.”
The fashion-conscious teen is a perfect choice to host the pre-show festivities, as she’s always dressed to perfection and fronts her own signature line of clothing called Dream Out Loud. Gomez is also rumored to be involved in the scheduled VMA tribute to Britney Spears, but that has yet to be confirmed by the network.
Announced performers include Lady Gaga, Adele, Lil Wayne, Bruno Mars, Chris Brown and Young the Giant, and most recently, Cobra Starship. The pop rockers will perform their ‘Night Shades’ track ‘You Make Me Feel…’ with Sabi.
