MTV has named funny man Kevin Hart as the host of next month’s Video Music Awards. Kevin Hart’s star has definitely been on the rise this year(Think Like A Man, Laugh At My Pain, Five Year Engagement) and he is no stranger to the awards show, so it only makes sense for MTV to make him this year’s host. They released the first promo of the show yesterday and it features the new “it” couple, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian (Keeping Up With The Kardashians). It’s a pretty good promo. Kim is not the best actress and she is acting as herself lol. This makes me think of when Fantasia Barrino (American Idol Season 3 winner) was playing herself in her Lifetime movie bio-pic, Life Is Not A Fairy Tale, and was doing a bad job playing herself.
The Video Music Awards air Thursday, September 6 @ 8/7c on MTV.
