It’s Official – Katy Perry Is Hosting This Year’s VMAs


Brace for impact – Katy Perry will be hosting the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. On the heels of her smash album Witness, Perry will not only anchor the night, but perform and duke it out as a nominee in five VMA categories.

Perry is up for Best Pop Video, Best Direction and Best Visual Effects  for “Chained to the Rhythm,” Best Art Direction for “Bon Appetit” and Best Collaboration with Calvin Harris, Pharrell Williams and Big Sean for “Feels.”

Given Perry’s fondness for outrageous costumes and performance displays, it’s no surprise that her hosting gig was announced in the coolest, most galactic way ever.
