The MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS are this SUNDAY, but only late yesterday did the network announce who'll be performing.
PHARELL, DEMI LOVATO, MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS, A$AP ROCKY and TWENTY ONE PILOTS have joined the previously announced THE WEEKND, who will perform his single, "Can't Feel My Face" at this year's ceremony, slated for SUNDAY, AUGUST 30th at 9p (ET/PT).
Yesterday, MTV announced that KANYE WEST will receive the MICHAEL JACKSON VIDEO VANGUARD AWARD, though it hasn't been revealed whether he'll perform (NET NEWS 8/25), while MILEY CYRUS will host.
MTV also revealed that one of CYRUS' favorite designers, JEREMY SCOTT, has created a brand-new design for the VMAs iconic MOONMAN statue, including colored metals, TV test pattern barns, a peace sign neckleas and his own signature winged sneakers.
This year’s Video Of The Year nominees include BEYONCE, KENDRICK LAMAR, ED SHEERAN, TAYLOR SWIFT and MARK RONSON, and turned out to launch a spirited TWITTER debate between the snubbed NICKI MINAJ and media darling SWIFT about race and body image.
