Katy Perry is reportedly texting Buzz Aldrin for advice!

KATY PERRY 2016 RESIZE

 

It looks like Katy Perry is taking her role as the MTV Video Music Awards host very seriously!

The singer has been announced to be presenting the annual event that takes place on August 27th at The Forum in California. As well as hosting the VMA's Katy is up for five awards including Best Collaboration and Best Pop.

The awards, which will feature genderless categories for the first time, will have a space theme to go alongside the 'moon man' trophies that have become iconic.

Speaking with Star, she said "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."

Although, we think she may be joking!

The event, which has previosuly been hosted by Miley Cyrus, P Diddy and Katy's ex Russell Brand, gives her the chance to add to her five VMA trophies that she has picked up since 2011.
