Miley Cyrus is set to host the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).
The pop singer announced the news via her Instagram account, wearing a green alien costume and signs that read, “MTV won’t let me perform … so I’m hosting this year’s VMAs.”
Miley Cyrus to Host 2015 MTV VMAs
The 2015 VMAs will mark Miley Cyrus’ first turn as host in one of the biggest events in the music industry. The awards show will air live on Aug. 30 at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
Cyrus has appeared as a performer on the MTV VMAs in past years and scandalized viewers by twerking on Robin Thicke during the 2013 VMAs. At the 2014 VMAs Cyrus surprised everyone again, this time by sending up a homeless 22-year-old man to accept the award and encouraging the audience to support charities for homeless youth.
With Cyrus stealing the show at two VMAs in a row, it seems MTV finally decided to make her the host.
Miley Cyrus Net Worth Is $160 Million
Miley Cyrus has come a long way since her “Hannah Montana” days.
Cyrus was the star of that Disney Channel show — alongside her father and country heartthrob Billy Ray Cyrus — which aired from 2006 to 2011. Cyrus has since made music her bread and butter, with her 2013 album “Bangerz” going certified platinum and boasting Billboard hits like “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop.” The album even got her a Grammy nomination for best pop vocal album.
In just nine years since she started earning paychecks for “Hannah Montana,” Miley Cyrus’s net worth has grown to an impressive $160 million, estimates CelebrityNetWorth — which means she has earned an average of around $17 million a year since 2006.
Miley Cyrus Rumored to be Dating Model Stella Maxwell
In addition to announcing her gig as the 2015 MTV VMAs host, Cyrus has been filling her Instagram feed with plenty of risque self-portraits, hard-partying snapshots and bizarrely edited photos. There are even photos of the pop star wearing pasties.
Cyrus has also shared photos of herself with model Stella Maxwell, including a shot of the two each taking a bite of the ends of a churro. These photos of Cyrus and Maxwell have stoked rumors that the two could be a couple.
In a June interview with Time magazine, Cyrus said she’s dated both men and women in the past.
