BREAKING NEWS! MTV Style has just confirmed that rapper/director (and STYLE FAVE) Kreayshawn will host the 2011 Video Music Awards Red Carpet Report for MTV.com on Aug. 28! “I’m super excited to be the red carpet host at this year’s VMAs,” says Kreayshawn. “I can harass celebrities about what they’re wearing, what they ate before they got to the carpet, all sorts of funny stuff.” The “Gucci Gucci” singer and Best New Artist nominee will interview attendees about their VMA red carpet style exclusively for MTV.com.
Kreayshawn (whose real name is Natassia Zolot) grew up in Oakland, California, and is known for her clever rhymes as much as for her much-blogged about thrift store style. The daughter of Bay Area guitarist Elka Zolot of the garage-punk band the Trashwomen, Kreayshawn directed music videos for local artists, most notably members of the Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All rap collective, before penning her popular hit singles, “Gucci Gucci” and “Bumpin’ Bumpin’.” Kreayshawn has since gone on to grace magazine covers such as the September issue of i-D.
Kreayshawn follows in the footsteps of previous red carpet hosts Coco Rocha, Christian Siriano, and Adrienne Bailon. No doubt this female rapper wunderkind—who has a gift for charming those she meets, even Diddy—will bring her wildly infectious style to the red carpet, so don’t forget to tune in on Sunday, Aug. 28!
