MTV has tapped Brit comic Russell Brand to host this year's Video Music Awards.
Kicking off the show Sunday night with her new single, "Gimme More," Britney Spears looked bleary and unprepared, much like her recent tabloid exploits on the streets of Los Angeles.
The 2005 MTV Video Music Awards will return to Miami for the second year. The 22nd kudocast will air live from Miami's American Airlines Arena at 8 p.m. on Aug. 28.
