MTV hosted a press conference for the MTV VMA awards at the Paramount lot in Hollwood today. They wanted to give the press a little taste of what Russell Brand and MTV will bring to the masses. To start with, a limo pulls up and out comes Christina Aguilera in some extra tell sexy heels promising to perform her new song, “Keeps Getting Better,” which is also the name of a best-of album she’s releasing in November.
“You’re going to get a first look and a first listen at my new image and my new sound,” she said. “The last album, the style and sound was about vintage glam — this one is all about the future.”
Next surprise guest who appeared from a fire escape in the New York backlot, rapper T.I.! He also confessed he’d be performing a new song from his forthcoming lp, “Paper Trail.”
He says, “The people can expect action-packed pandemonium from top to bottom,” he said, before turning to Brand and adding, “Those are some impressive pants you’ve got there. Are they denim? I thought they were spray-on aerosol.”
Russie also broke the news that Kanye West would be getting over his strike against the VMA’s and will close the show! Oh one more thing, did I mention that Kid Rock was there and he confirmed he’d be performing……..with Lil Wayne?!
I knew as soon as they hired Russell Brand to host this years awards show that MTV wanted to go with something BIG something fabulous!
