Demi Lovato Says Selena Gomez Will Rock VMA Pre-Show Hosting Duties

Selena Gomez is set to appear as our special pre-show correspondent at the 2011 Video Music Awards this Sunday. She’ll be reporting live from the black carpet when the show goes live from sunny L.A., and a slew of A-listers are set to walk the carpet and party it up at the biggest music bash of the year.

This week, we caught up with Selena’s pal, Demi Lovato, at a fan meet and greet, and she was pretty sure that Selena could handle the hosting gig without any additional words of wisdom from her. “I have no advice because I’ve never hosted anything in my life,” the “Skyscraper” singer said with a laugh.

Okay, so Demi may not have any advice for Bieber’s best gal, but she did have this to say about her Disney cohort: “But she’s great; she’ll do fine.”

But, if Selena IS looking for some advice, back in 2009 former pre-show correspondent Taylor Swift did have this to say for incoming fashion correspondent, “Twilight” star Ashley Greene:

“Don’t rehearse,” Taylor instructed. “Have a couple question for each of [the stars]. You have to have a general knowledge about what’s going on in the careers of musicians today, but you never know who’s gonna walk up.”

Hey, TayTay, that’s actually really good advice. You listening, Selena?
