We wouldn’t normally tune in, but Canadian experimental electronic producer and vocalist Grimes is set to co-host this years MTV Video Music Awards and If her set at Boiler Room was anything to go by, we expect she will be running the show her way without any f*&ks being given.
In what could be a taste of things to come two days prior to the popular Met Ball in New York Grimes was already having a laugh at her own social awkwardness “I wish there was some alternative to the red carpet like the blue carpet or the black carpet for anti social people”
Grimes will be hosting the awards alongside “America’s fashion-sweetheart” Rachel Antonoff with performances from the likes of Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Drake and Lady Gaga and of course Daft Punk who cancelled their appearance on The Colbert Report choosing instead to perform at the VMA’s.
The awards show will be held Sunday 25th August 9pm PDT at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn which you can conveniently stream the event live here.
Are we up for some more Grimes trolling? We hope so!!
