MTV has named Russell Brand the host of this year's Video Music Awards, which will air live from Los Angeles on September 7. The popular British comedian broke through to the states as the rock 'n' roll character Aldous Snow in Forgetting Sarah Marshall earlier this year. He's also started to make standup appearances in major cities and will soon be seen alongside Adam Sandler in Bedtime Stories.
"I am proud to be hosting the MTV VMAs," Brand said in a statement. "I'm going to celebrate by doing lesbian kisses with both Britney and Madonna, and I'll be giving Michael Jackson a special award to celebrate his birthday—which, coincidentally, is also a lesbian kiss."
