Yep, we can reveal that Selena Gomez
will be temporarily tearing herself away from popstar beau Justin Bieber
to host the ‘2011 VMA Pre-Show!’
The chart-topping songstress, who’ll be rubbing shoulders with the stars and spilling the goss on all the breaking news straight from the black carpet, told MTV,
"I am very excited to be a part of the 2011 VMAs! After all of my years watching the VMAs, the pre-show has always been one of my favorite parts. It is a true honor to be hosting from the black carpet this year."
Reporting for duty on the night alongside MTV’s Sway Calloway, Jim Cantiello
and James Montgomery,
the pint-sized brunette will also be joined by Cobra Starship!
The pop-punkers will be belting out their smash hit single ‘You Make Me Feel’
during the pre-show, which will also include an exclusive new ‘Jersey Shore’
“I grew up watching them every year and it was an honor to be nominated two years ago and it is an even bigger honor to be able to play the pre-show this year,"
guitarist Ryland Blackinton
