MTV’s Video Music Awards, aka The VMAs, are back for their 33rd year (yay!), and this time they’ll be taking place at NYC’s Madison Square Garden for the first time ever. (It’ll be the 16th time they air from New York though, the most recent being at Barclays Center in 2013.) The awards ceremony happens August 28. Here’s more via Billboard:

“We are excited that MTV will bring the VMAs back to its original home of New York City,” said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. “From the red carpet to the accolades to the performances — and everything in between — the VMAs are an incredible showcase for so many talented artists.”

[…] “The VMAs at MSG is a New York story too good to resist,” Sean Atkins, president of MTV, said in a press release. “The VMAs deliver some of pop culture’s most defining moments and we’re grateful to our New York home and Madison Square Garden for rolling out the red carpet for what is sure to be the biggest night in music.”

Speaking of MTV, Perfect Pussy singer Meredith Graves recently began a new endeavor as a reporter for MTV News, as you can see in the video clip of her discussing celebrities mourning Prince’s death:
