2008 MTV VMA Press Conference

Host Russell Brand, Christina Aguilera, and T.I. were at the Paramount Pictures lot in Hollywood today to announce the latest round of MTV VMA performers and presenters.

Christina Aguilera will perform a special rendition of “Genie in a Bottle,” Kanye West will close the show (after he vowed to never return), and T.I. will perform “Live Your Life” with Rihanna (just like we said).

Jamie Foxx, Chace Crawford, Ashlee Simpson, John Legend, Kobe Bryant, Leona Lewis, Paris Hilton, Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Slash, Taylor Swift, and Shia LaBeouf have been added as presenters.


T.I. does whatever he likes, including climbing the fire escape, while girlfriend Tiny (left) watches.
