Get ready to see a bit more of Katy Perry on your television screens…well, at least for one night!
Variety reports that the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer has officially been tapped to host this year’s 2017 MTV Video Music Awards.
In a statement announcing her hosting duties for the night, Perry poked fun at the infamous moonman statuettes given out for artists who take home top prize.
“I’ve been training with MTV in zero gravity, eating astronaut ice cream, and I’m on a group text with Buzz Aldrin and Neil deGrasse Tyson,” jokes Perry. “Come August 27th, I’ll be ready to be your MOONWOMAN! Brace for impact, kids.”
Additionally, Perry also took to Twitter to share the good news with fans far and wide.
“Introducing your MOONWOMAN,” tweeted Perry. “Brace for impact! August 27th on @MTV @VMAs.”
The singer paired her words with a short promo featuring herself flying through a sparkly galaxy en route to the moon, dressed in the most stylish space suit we’ve seen in a while.

As excited as we’re sure Perry is to host this year’s festivities, it sounds as though the singer will have a lot on her plate come awards night. On top of serving as this year’s host, Perry is also one of the night’s performers.
Additionally, the singer is up for not one, but five different awards in this year’s first ever non-gender categories. She’s also received a nod in the coveted Best Pop category, where she’ll be going head to head with the likes of Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, Fifth Harmony, and Miley Cyrus.
There’s no telling if Katy Perry will cap off a night of hosting by walking away with an armful of moonmen statues, so we guess we’ll have to tune in to see if she wins big later this summer!
The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards are set to air August 27 at 8 p.m. on MTV.
