Grimes, Robin Thicke, Ariana Grande And More To Appear On VMA All Access

The 2013 Video Music Awards are near, and to herald their arrival on Sunday, August 25, MTV is launching the VMA All Access Experience, 5 days of livestreamed performances and VMA moments starting NOW! And, get this, Grimes will be making a special appearance!

All the action kicks off today at 4 p.m. EST with a special edition of "Rapfix Live" -- live, this time, from the Barclays Center -- featuring Big Sean. Robin Thicke, Ariana Grande and Foxy Brown will also be making appearances over the course of the week.

Show day, however, has got MTV Hive pumped -- not only because the 2013 Video Music Awards features the likes of Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Kanye West, but because Grimes, along with designer Rachel Antonoff, will co-host MTV Style's Red Carpet Report (6 p.m. ET Sunday). Perhaps she'll wear one of her pussy rings? One can dream.

Watch the action all week long at The Video Music Awards kick off at 9 p.m. ET/PT from Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
