Perry to host MTV VMAs

Katy Perry, seen above at the Glastonbury Festival last month, will host this year's MTV Video Music Awards, the network announced on Thursday.

MTV posted a photo of Perry clad as an astronaut, a nod to the awards' Moonman statuette.

The US singer joked that she had started "training in zero gravity", reported AFP.

The show will be aired globally on Aug 27.
