Miley Cyrus has been tapped to host the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards on August 30, but after last year’s Robin Thicke “pop culture crime” occurrence, how far will the singer-songwriter go this time around?
The executive producer of the awards, Jesse Ignajatovic, sat down with Billboard to discuss how MTV will deal with censoring or limiting her. “Miley knows how far she can push things and where it would cross the line. [Whether] it’s language or concepts for a pre-tape that go too far, she’s the first to say, “You probably won’t let me do that.” Ignajatovic continued, “To this point, there hasn’t been anything where you’d need to have a finger on a button ready to press it … She just likes to have fun, and I think it’s going to carry through the whole show. And, of course, she will throw in some surprises.”
“I don’t see this as Miley taking the stage and we’re all concerned about what she’s going to say. I think the opposite: I’m excited for what she’ll say and do as host. Miley Cyrus is the epitome of the VMAs.”
The MTV Video Music Awards will air live from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater at 9/8c with Cyrus and the only announced performer as of now, The Weeknd, on August 30, 2015.
