September 13 marks the first full day of NFL action this season.

But while grown men around the country are getting ready for some football, teenage girls will be preparing themselves for some hot Robert Pattinson action!

MTV has announced that it will air a new set of clips for New Moon during that evening's Video Music Awards. This follows a new tradition for the network: at this summer's MTV Movie Awards, fans were treated to the first official trailer for the Twilight sequel.

If you somehow missed it, or just wanna relive the awesomeness, enjoy:

Moreover, we can confirm that Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will be on hand to present the video at the event. Might there be another near-kiss between the former pair of co-stars?!?

The ceremony airs at 9 p.m. EST on MTV. We understand if you need to leave your computer for a few moments to go set a DVR recording.

But hurry back!

Set to premiere September 13, the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards are coming up. Before you know it, Russell Brand will be on stage ripping the Jonas Brothers.

It's not an event you want to miss.

Below, a number of today's top music stars, which the event theoretically honors, preview the enormous, albeit arbitrary awards with nice promotional photos.

From left, Katy Perry (up for best video for her hit "Hot N Cold"), Cobra Starship (up for best pop video), Taylor Swift (nominated for best video for "You Belong with Me") and Ne-Yo (presenter and best male video nominee for "Miss Independent").

The Hills star Audrina Patridge agreed to go on the new season of Dancing With the Stars, according to reports, only to have MTV shoot down her dreams.

"They won't let Audrina do it," a source dished to E! Online.

Sherri Shepherd and Val Chmerkovskiy

"They told her it would be impossible because of scheduling."

However, The Hills doesn't usually shoot on Mondays and Tuesdays, the two days Audrina would be at DWTS for the performance and elimination shows.

"Audrina Patridge wants to do it. Everyone around her wants her to do it," the source said. "But MTV, for some reason, won't make it happen."

Dashed are Audrina Patridge's dreams of going Dancing with the Stars.

"Why wouldn't they want someone from The Hills on such a huge show? Dancing With the Stars would give MTV all this exposure, but they won't budge."

It would also let Audrina be herself instead of reading cue cards all the time and pretending to care about staged fights with Justin-Bobby. Bummer.

Audrina is currently developing her own reality show with Mark Burnett.

Other possible DWTS contenders in Season 9 are said to be Vera Wang, Dean McDermott, Lou Ferrigno and, per a report yesterday, La Toya Jackson.

Sounds like a crew that needs Audrina to spice things up. Weak.

After controversially hosting the MTV Video Music Awards last year, Russell Brand is back to host the awards again on September 13 in New York City.

The zany British comic ruffled feathers at last year’s made up, but still entertaining ceremony when he joked that the Jonas Brothers should be taking advantage of their celebrity status to get laid and mocked the concept of "purity rings."

Our personal favorite joke came at the expense of both the Brothers Jonas and then-ridiculously unpopular President George W. Bush, as Brand quipped:

"I feel sorry for Americans. Eight years of Bush! The only people who need eight years of bush are the Jonas Brothers, crammed into one bachelor party."

Just leave Danielle Deleasa out of it this year, okay Russ?

Russell Brand is running it back at the VMAs again this September.

“We are thrilled that despite numerous death threats from Jonas Brothers fans, Russell Brand has accepted our offer to put his life on the line and host the VMAs again this year,” MTV’s general manager, Stephen Friedman, said.

Taylor Swift will also appear on the live show, performing a new version of “You Belong With Me.” We can hear the inappropriate comments from Brand now.

While Brand was panned by many, the 2008 VMAs reached more than 23 million viewers, a 15 percent boost from the 2007 hostless edition of the VMAs (best remembered for Britney Spears' disastrous performance of "Gimme More").

Unlike other networks, MTV knows how to host a movie awards show.

At last night's annual event, celebrities from all industries walked the red carpet, the New Moon trailer premiered and Kiefer Sutherland cried hysterically into the arms of Ben Stiller.

A Premiere Couple

But two events stand out the most from the evening:

  1. A half-naked Sacha Baron Cohen (in his character of Bruno) fell into Eminem's lap. At the sight, and touch, of Bruno's bare buttocks, Eminem fumed: "Are you serious? Get the **** off me!," before storming out of his seat.
  2. After their win for best kiss, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart stood at the podium and came... so... close... to... kissing.

Here's a look at each of the memorable occurrences:

Which MTV Movie Awards development was most shocking?

Britney Spears opened up, then won big at last night's 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, taking home three awards, including Video of the Year.

She kicked off the show in a pre-taped skit with actor Jonah Hill - yes, he of the laugh-out-loud Superbad quotes. That movie was so funny.

This skit? Not so much. Here's the video ...

Yeah. Fortunately, the night got better for Britney after that. After the segment, Spears, in sexy, sparkly halter dress, walked on stage as "Baby One More Time" blared. She then won Best Female Video for "Piece of Me."

"I'm speechless... Oh, my goodness, thank you!" an elated, giggly Spears told the crowd. "I first wanna thank God for blessing me like this. My family ... my two beautiful boys [Sean and Jayden] for inspiring me everyday."

She later took home the award for Best Pop Video, telling the crowd again that she was "speechless" and thanking longtime manager Larry Rudolph. Britney Spears then closed out the night by winning Video of the Year.

"I'm in shock right now," she said. "I want to dedicate this to all my fans."

Are you the slightest bit surprised by this headline?

You shouldn't be. The Hills' gruesome twosome has reportedly been talking to the network that made them famous about their upcoming nuptials.

Heidi Bends Over

As in a live telecast of their upcoming nuptials.

Heidi Montag reportedly told MTV programming and development honcho Tony DiSanto that they're ready to tie the knot in front of the cameras.

Surprise, surprise: DiSanto is said to be all for it!

Would you watch Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's wedding? You can admit it.

According to Spencer Pratt, their dream is a small wedding on Sir Richard Branson's private island in the Virgin Islands, with catering by Wolfgang Puck, designer watches for all guests and a live performance by U2.

Even master manipulators like Spencer and Heidi may be aiming too high with those requests, but we're sure MTV can figure out something.

Our personal suggestion is for Brody Jenner and Frankie Delgado to become ordained ministers online, then officiate the ceremony.

Continuing its immensely popular spring run, The Hills returns with an all-new episode tonight on MTV. Over the weekend, the Boston Globe's Joanna Weiss throughout examined the obsession millions of people have with The Hills...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cute Lauren Conrad Pic

I still remember the first time I stumbled on The Hills, and how confused I was. It couldn't be scripted, since the dialogue was awful and the characters could barely deliver lines. But it couldn't be a reality show, because the scenes played out too perfectly. Cameras always happened to be rolling when the phone rang or the meaningful text message arrived.

It is, of course, a reality show, but a strangely innovative one.

Lauren Conrad and her friends in Los Angeles might replay scenes they've already lived through, or make carefully timed entrances into rooms so the cameras can get the right angle, but they never give a hint that they're being filmed.

The Hills, a coming-of-age follow-up to MTV's hit Laguna Beach (which also starred Conrad) drops the pretense of the confessional and the sense of manufactured conflict in favor of a new charade: pretending that the cameras aren't there.

As viewers, we're expected to keep up our end of the bargain.

Forget all about Lauren Conrad and new clothing line or her Mercedes, forget the single Heidi Montag recently released. Pretend these are normal, struggling young women, trying to make it in the cutthroat world of L.A.

The Hills' Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port.

One girl, a smart, poised journalism student in Boston - whose life must be very different from LC's - told me she likes the show because she can relate.

She's not the only one.

The Hills is an unmitigated MTV hit, and not just among the college crowd. John McCain, who won an endorsement from Heidi Montag, told Time magazine he never misses the show, and it's hard to tell if he was being facetious.

The first of the current eight-episode run of spring "bonus" installments of The Hills drew 4.8 million viewers, the show's highest ratings to date.

The day after it aired, the episode drew 1.8 million streams from MTV.com.

Here's your chance to become the next Audrina Patridge, Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port, Heidi Montag or Spencer Pratt - if you're British, that is!

According to reports, MTV UK has begun casting its new version of The Hills that will air across the Atlantic later this year! OMG, bloody brilliant!

MTV UK is accepting applicants 18-21 years old who love being in front of the camera and are followers of fashion, art - and partying and clubbing.

That's pretty much everyone, at least the last part. Of course, wannabe reality TV stars should also have "striking looks" (shock) and an "aspirational lifestyle."

We're guessing that means you'll do anything to be famous, even leak your own topless photos (Audrina) or have 23 plastic surgeries (Heidi).

We'd be surprised if the British Hills found a star as beautiful as Lauren Conrad, or a supportive BFF / co-worker who's as delightful and sweet as Whitney Port.

You may never be cast on The Hills, but you can tell us this much, fans - which character on the hit series are you most like? Are you a career girl like Whitney? A fembot like Heidi? A serial dater like LC? Tell us!
