Taking to Instagram, the Roar singer said alongside a promo for the event:

"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. Come August 27th, I'll be ready to be your MOONWOMAN! Brace for impact, kids 👩🏼‍🚀"

Bruce Gillmer, head of music and music talent of Viacom's global entertainment group, said in a statement:

"We're thrilled to have global phenomenon Katy Perry as the host and a performer at the 2017 VMAs. She is at the forefront of music culture and the perfect person to anchor this year's show, which promises to be one of the most diverse and music-filled in VMA history."

Looks like Katy can officially add TV personality to her resume, since she'll also be judging American Idol this fall!

P.S. Are we the only ones smelling a possible Taylor Swift and Katy Kat PR stunt reunion on MTV's biggest night???? You heard it here first, if so!
