It seems only fitting that a singer whose upcoming album is titled Teenage Dream should host this year’s Teen Choice Awards. Just in time for the August 24 release of her sophomore LP, [artist id=”3274550″]Katy Perry[/artist] is set to MC the show on August 9, according to
Nominees, as well as Perry’s co-host, will be announced this week, according to the show’s Twitter. The announcement comes just days after Perry stormed the stage at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, performing her hit single “California Gurls” video , a preview of which has her dancing in her own personal Candy Land. The singer, sporting a blue wig these days, is also slated to perform at the Teen Choice Awards, airing on Fox.
In the days before MTV’s Movie Awards, Perry had vowed to perform in the nude — a promise she did not keep. So, maybe this means she’ll have some time to build up the courage for her appearance at the August show? Regardless, the California girl seems to be gearing up for a busy summer, with a number of projects in the works, including her role as the voice of Smurfette in the CG/live-action movie adaptation of “The Smurfs” (due for a 2011 release).
“I’ve never seen an episode [of ‘The Smurfs’], because my parents wouldn’t let me,” Perry confessed to MTV News on the Movie Awards red carpet. “My mom thought that Smurfette was a little bit slutty, being the only female in the village. And now I showed her. I called her up and was like, ‘Guess what, Mom: I’m Smurfette!’
“It’s just like another one of those days, where it’s like, ‘Guess what, Mom: I kissed a girl! Guess what, Mom: I’m going to be naked in a music video!’ ” Perry laughed.
