Miley Cyrus will host the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.

To announce the news, the 22-year-old singer dressed up as an alien wearing a sign which read: ''MTV won't let me perform so I'm hosting this year's VMAs.''

Miley's sign was a nod to her 2013 performance alongside Robin Thicke which was slammed as too racy.

She captioned the picture: ''F**k yeah VMAs!!!!! #VMAs on @MTV Aug 30 at 9pm.''

Miley's performance at the VMAs in 2013 caused controversy due to the suggestive performance she put on while wearing a teddy bear leotard and Miley has admitted in the past that she set out to shock people.

She said: ''I know what I'm doing. I know I'm shocking you. When I'm dressed in that teddy bear thing, I think that's funny. I was saying yesterday, I had this obsession about this character that's like an adult baby. Like if you see a baby do something like that it's so warped and weird, but there's something creepily hot about it.

''So when I'm in that teddy bear suit, I'm like a creepy, sexy baby. But I forget that it's, like, people in Kansas watching the show. That people sit their kid in front of the TV and are like, ''Oh, an awards show! Let's watch.'''
