It has just been revealed that Britney Spears will be kicking off the MTV Video Music Awards.
"MTV has long played an important role in my career. How can I not be there to kick off their 25th VMAs?" Spears says in a statement. "I'm excited to open the entire show, to say hi to my fans and to be nominated."
Spears – who has been nominated 16 times and never won – is up this year for Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Video of the Year for "Piece of Me."
It's still not known how she'll open the show. A source confirms that the opening segment will not feature a musical performance by Spears. At least we know it won't be a repeat disaster of last year's events, but hopefully it goes well for her. I know I'll be watching to see what happens!!
