Trevor Boris, a writer for the MuchMusic Video Awards, recently chatted with the Toronto Sun about Miley Cyrus and Jonas Brothers.
“I feel like Miley is going to be a little more open, that she’s trying to be a bit more grown-up and edgy these days,” the writer admitted. ”Last year, with the Jonas Brothers hosting, there were all these weird rules. Like, they wouldn’t say the word panties.”
“And I can’t even remember why we were trying to say panties. But they had this long list of things they wouldn’t say. It is funny some of the things you run into when the artists.”
Boris also talked about the sometimes spontaneous nature of putting together a major award show. ”Sometimes the magical stuff is the stuff that comes together fast,” he added. ”For example, last year at the very last minute, the Jonas Brothers said, ‘Yes, we’re totally up for a skit.’ It was 4 o’clock the day of the show. So we’re scrambling, but we come up with a great idea, we film it in like 20 minutes, literally just before they were going to do the red carpet. In the end we didn’t get it cut in time and it didn’t make the show, although it did make MuchOnDemand, and we do a behind-the-scenes special and it made that, too.”
