Miley being Miley, she announced the news in a totally bizarre manner.
The singer posted a snap of herself on Instagram dressed in a bright green Alien onesie, wearing a sandwich board emblazoned with the words "MTV WON'T LET ME PERFORM" on one side and "SO I'M HOSTING THIS YEAR'S VMAS" on the other. Well it gets the point across!
If her previous VMA appearances are anything to go by, we'll be in for a few surprises throughout the night. Cast your mind back to 2013 and you'll remember when Miley took to the VMA stage for a very memorable performance featuring a foam finger.
Appearing onstage in nothing but a nude PVC two-piece, Miley opened our eyes to the now legendary twerk dance move as she performed 'Blurred Lines' alongside Robin Thicke. The office Christmas party has never been quite the same since!
Last year, Miley made headlines for a different reason. Upon winning Video of the Year for 'Wrecking Ball', she used the moment as a platform to launch her Happy Hippie organisation. Miley offered up her acceptance speech time to Jesse Helt, her homeless date for the evening, who took the opportunity to explain the plight of homeless youth in L.A.
So it's anyones guess what Miley will pull out the bag this time, more raunchy dancing or another heartwarming moment? Well, as she's hosting there might just be time for both!
The 2015 VMAs will take place 30 August
