“You love Missy Elliott!” Selena shrieked.

Lovato is just one of many celebrities platinum recording artist and Emmy-winning actress Gomez interviewed. She talked to her peers alongside MTV’s team of correspondents, including Calloway, Jim Cantiello and James Montgomery.

“I am very excited to be a part of the 2011 VMAs! After all of my years watching the VMAs, the pre-show has always been one of my favorite parts. It is a true honor to be hosting from the black carpet this year,” Gomez said before the show in a statement.
