Katy Perry to host Video Music Awards for MTV Europe

    There seems to be a possible trade imbalance between the continents. After England was gracious enough to loan out Russell Brand for hosting duties at the Video Music Awards, MTV Europe has announced that Katy Perry will be hosting its version of the show. Executive producer Richard Godfrey said that Perry was “"one of the freshest and most successful new artists to emerge on the international music scene this year" and that her image will blend perfectly with the “more relaxed” role the host will have at the ceremonies. Perry, who is nominated for Best New Artist and Most Addictive Track, follows in the footsteps of Christina Aguilera, P Diddy, Snoop Dogg, and Tom Jones. [Contact Music]
