Grimes to Co-Host MTV Video Music Awards Red Carpet Broadcast
Over the past year, Grimes has affixed her status as a style icon in the fashion world. But she’s had a complicated relationship with red carpets. “i wish there was some alternative to the red carpet like the blue carpet or the black carpet for anti social people,” she wrote on Twitter back in May. A few weeks before, regarding her appearance at the Met Ball, she also wrote, “i feel like there is no way for me to not make a fool of my self on the red carpet at the met ball in 2 days. i will surely trip…”
Now MTV Hive confirms that Grimes will co-host MTV Style’s Red Carpet Report (airing 6 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday, August 25) alongside the fashion designer Rachel Antonoff. They’ll be broadcasting from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Drake, Lady Gaga, and others are scheduled to perform at the VMAs, which begin at 9 p.m. The program will be available to stream live online as well.
