In a move that is likely to surprise many, controversial singer Miley Cyrus is to host the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).
Miley, who audiences and viewers of the 2013 edition of the awards will remember for her twerking upon Robin Thicke, announced her selection on Twitter:

She made headlines in a different way at last year’s awards when she sent a homeless 22-year old onstage to accept her award for Video of the Year for her song “Wrecking Ball” as part of a campaign to raise awareness and money for homeless youth.
The 2015 VMAs will air live August 30 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
