The most interesting person in pop music, Miley Cyrus, has confirmed she'll be hosting this year's MTV Video Music Awards, which takes place on August 30 at LA's Microsoft Theatre.

"MTV won't let me perform, so I'm hosting this year's VMAs," read the announcement on twitter - which features Cyrus in one of those lycra bodysuits stag parties seem to love.

The nominees will be announced today on Apple Music's Beats 1.
