Jack Black to Host MTV Video Music Awards

by at . Comments


Hey, Shakira will be there, so we already planned on tuning in. Now, a host has been named, though, and he promises that the show will be a "rip-snortin' humdinger"

"I am Jables, hear me roar," said Jack Black, tapped to lead the ceremony and referring to his nickname when he performs with his two-man band, Tenacious D.

MTV president Christina Norman called Black the "perfect mix of comedy, rock, irreverence and star power."

The Gossip calls Lindsay Lohan the "perfect mix of wasted space, promiscuous proclivity, irrelevence and red hair."

The VMAs will air live on Aug. 31 from New York City's Radio City Music Hall, as Shakira and the Red Hot Chili Peppers lead the list of nominees.

We congratulate Black on the birth of his celebrity baby, but assume the tyke will be left at home for the evening.
