Are you ready to kick it?
With the MTV Video Music Awards a mere two days away, everyone is excited. The entire world, perhaps, can't wait to see the musical surprises in store.
Well, like the Grinch, I'm here to take away your joy. (Well, me and the Hollywood Reporter.) Host Kevin Hart opened his mouth today and out poured two of the special guests: Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne. Additonally, rapper 2 Chainz and the X-Factor judge Demi Lovato (who Simon Cowell called a brat), Rita Orr and Psy will also appear.
Other performers cutting a rug include Rihanna,Frank Ocean, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Green Day, Pink and One Direction.
Rihanna will be opening the show with her hit "Cockiness," featuring A$AP Rocky. Rihanna will alos perform "We Found Love." Must....resist....Chris Brown joke....Moving on!
Katy Perry we also be giving out the award (and probably crying over Russell Brand).
Host Hart says to expect the unexpected.
“They beauty of me being the host is you don’t know what to expect. Nobody is off limits,” he said. “I think it’s my job to put the room in a place where people can relax and have a good time and the best way to do that is to show people they can poke fun at themselves.”
The MTV Video Music Awards will air live on Thursday, from Los Angeles' Staples Center, home of the Stanley Cup Champion L.A. Kings.
