This year the VMAs are back to Radio City Music Hall in NYC which will be hosted by Russell Brand for the 2nd consecutive year. I think it’s the first time that’s happened, I guess the producers really liked last year’s “Jonas Brothers – purity rings” jokes. And well, Brand will be given the chance to diss Bush again. Based on the nominations released earlier, it’s either goin’ to be Lady Gaga’s or Beyonce’s night tying with 9 noms each. With live performances from Green Day, Muse, Pink and Taylor Swift and presentors among others, Katy Perry and Chace Crawford, it will be one unforgettable night. Mark your calendars: September 13.
