This year just keeps getting better and better for 19 year-old Selena Gomez. She was just revealed to be the host of the pre-show for this year’s MTV’s Video Music Awards. Selena Gomez & The Scene was nominated for a VMA in the category of “Best New Artist”, while Selena’s boyfriend Justin Bieber was nominated for “Best Male Video” for his song U Smile.
“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,” Selena said.
Selena will begin hosting at 8 p.m. EST on Sun., Aug. 28 in Los Angeles. Lady Gaga will open the VMAs, and Chris Brown, Adele, Lil Wayne, and Bruno Mars are among some of the performers.
