MTV will delay broadcast of the 2015 Video Music Awards after giving Miley Cyrus “full reign” as host.
EW caught up with VMA executive producer Garrett English, who said there is nothing that is off-limits for Cyrus on the VMA stage.
“We’re giving her pretty free rein,” English says. “Obviously there are standards and various other things that were always a part of it, but no, [no rules]… It never comes from a place of trying to limit the range, it’s always coming from a place of trying to open up the full palate.”
With so much freedom left to the jaw-dropping artist, it’s no surprise that MTV decided to delay the broadcast in order to make some last minute censorship(which they might need).
“We have planned a lot of wide camera shots and a lot of audience reaction shots. And we have a delay so we’re prepared for her,”MTV president Van Toffler told Billboard Thursday. “She feels like the perfect host. She’s that that great marriage of music credibility, candor, she uses social media so well to express herself and she’s provocative and chaotic and unpredictable, everything we want for this show.”
As for what Miley has planned for the show, she says she will make the event “psychedelic and raw” as compared to last year’s event which Miley pegged as having “no energy.”
“What I’m trying to do is create my Instagram—which people love to think is so freaky—in real life. It’s letting people into my world,” she said. She also hired the hilarious Seth Rogen and his team to write jokes for her gig. “I’m not a stand-up. That’s what it always feels like—like everything’s flopping and dying out there,” Cyrus said. “So my intro is fun skits.”
With performances from Nicki Minaj, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Justin Bieber and more the 2015 VMAs are sure to be a show to remember!
