I Want My MileyTV! Becoming host of the VMAs turns the former twerk-queen into …

Miley Cyrus Is Hosting the VMAs, so of Course We Have Some Ideas for Her.

Taylor Swift’s star-studded Bad Blood music video is paying off: She’s the top nominee at next month’s MTV Video Music Awards. There’s no VMA for Instagrams, yet—though we’re guessing there will be one in less than five years—but we’ve got one reserved for Taylor anyway after today’s post. Having a host like Miley opens up a lot of possibilities for the VMAs—especially considering the last two years’ events haven’t had an emcee at all.

Swift’s superhero-themed video for “Bad Blood,” a collaboration with hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar, which also features cameos by more than a dozen other celebrities, will compete for the coveted Video of the Year award against Beyonce’s “7/11,” Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” featuring Bruno Mars, and Lamar’s “Alright.” The awards show, which MTV bills as “music’s most unexpected night,” hands out “Moonman” statuettes for achievements in music videos. We have to admit we enjoyed not having to sit through a potentially awkward opening monologue as well as the additional musical performances (like Cyrus’ infamous duet with Robin Thicke). But full disclosure: the men whom Taylor is beating down are paid stuntmen, and your fellow gym-goers probably won’t respond well to the same treatment.

The event has made headlines in recent years for singer Miley Cyrus’ provocative “twerk” performance with a foam finger in 2013, and hip-hop artist Kanye West’s interruption of Swift’s 2009 acceptance speech. Cyrus tweeted on Monday that she will host this year’s awards, showing pictures of her with placards saying: “MTV won’t let me perform” and “So I’m hosting this year’s VMAs.” Garrison Keillor, creator and longtime host of the popular A Prairie Home Companion radio show, is retiring after next season, after four decades of entertaining listeners with his baritone voice and folksy comedy sketches about Lake Wobegon, his mythical Minnesota hometown.
