Russell Brand To Host VMAs For Second Straight Year

Last year, he was “that guy” who called the Jonas Brothers out for their purity rings.

Now, Russell Brand is back! MTV has just announced that the British comedian and Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor will be back for a second year as the host of the 26th annual MTV Video Music Awards on September 13.

While last year’s hosting gig was quite controversial, Russell says this year will be different. “This year will be a controversy-free festival of love and discrete orgasms.”


It was also announced that Taylor Swift will be performing a brand-new version of “You Belong With Me” as she takes the stage for the first time at the awards show.

“I’m so excited that MTV and the VMAs have invited me to perform,” said Taylor in a statement. “Because I think this year’s show will be unlike anything they’ve ever done! I love incorporating theatrics into my performances, and the VMAs have always allowed artists to run with that. MTV has been so good to me, and I could not be more excited about this year’s VMAs!”

We can’t wait to see what happens this year!
